You never had a dream like this
Never felt the cold cold steel
Slam you like a fist
Break you down until you kneel
Just like a beggar man
Asking only for redemption
All the things that can't
Make a man believe in heaven

Fix your eyes upon the bars
Memorize their other side
Like the tatoos on your arms
The brag so loud and tough that night
But now the truth comes out
Fast as feel can do your talking
It sets you free as one guard shouts
Dead man walking

When neither light nor darkness
When neither night or day
When neither kind nor heartless
When neither lost or saved
When neither still or moved
When neither held or free
Oh to be so human

Dead man walking

When neither light nor darkness
When neither night or day
When neither kind nor heartless
When neither lost or saved
When neither still or moved
When neither held or free
Oh to be so human
Oh to be

Somewhere in a dream like this where
Light of love leads us home
Broken worlds will not be fixed
Engines take us as thy own
We're just like beggars now
On our knees we hear our names
God forgives somehow
We have yet to learn to save
