      About "Dead Man Walking"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Dead Man Walking"

      He swivels his head
      Tears his eyes from the screen
      As his past puts him back in Atlantic City

      There's not even a demon in Heaven or Hell
      Is it all just human disguise?
      As I walk down the aisle

      Gone gone gone spinning slack through the end?
      Deadens? my brain falling up through the years
      Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly
      Losing breath from the water then I'm gone gone gone

      And I'm gone gone gone
      Now I'm older than movies
      Let me dance away
      Now I'm wiser than dreams
      Let me fly fly fly
      While I'm touching tomorrow
      And I know who's there
      When silhouettes fall

      And I'm gone
      Like I'm dancing on angels
      And I'm gone through a crack in the past

      Like a dead man walking
      Like a dead man walking

      Three old men dancing under the lamplight
      Shaking their sex and their bones
      And the boys that we were
      An alien nation in therapy
      Sliding naked and new
      Like a bad tempered child
      On a rain slicked street

      Gone gone gone spinning slack through the end?
      Deadens? my brain falling up through the years
      Till I swivel back round then I fly fly fly
      Losing breath from the water then I'm gone gone gone

      And I'm gone

      And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
      And I'm gone, through the crack in the past

      Like a dead man walking
      Like a dead man walking
      Like a dead man
      Like a dead man walking

      And I'm gone gone gone
      Let me dance dance dance
      And I'm gone gone gone
      Let me dance dance dance

      And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
      And I'm gone, through a crack in the past
      And I'm gone, like I'm dancing on angels
      And I'm gone, through a crack in the past

      Like a dead man walking
      Like a dead man walking
      Like a dead man
      Like a dead man walking
