dead man walking

if I´ll ever find the way
into your minds this final day
maybe I could try to change
your views of judging me this way
if I´ll ever find the love
that makes me strong,
that makes me stay
and if I´ll ever find the way
out of this darkness in my mind

with broken heart and empty mind,
i cling to you, I cling to life
and this cuts deep
just like a knife in my pride

so if I will die today,
i won´t kneel down, I won´t pray
cause at the end of our days,
we´re all the same and no one stays
but after all there is no love,
that makes you strong,
that makes you stay
so if my light will fade away this night,
i wasted all my time

emptiness is filling me,
but maybe it´s just one more day
that makes me burn inside your heart
just a few words from the dead,
i will lay down and rest my head
to stop this burning in your heart
did you ever realize,
that you´re the lonely one
did You ever realize,
that you´re the only one
…in life, that makes you feel
like you´re alone
that makes you feel
like no one´s home
and if this poison´s in again,
these words will be your only friend
to pull you through your darkest nights
to make you forget your pride
you are the fool
and you´re not right
time was never on your side
and if you still don´t understand,
i give a damn if you´re my friend

with broken heart and empty mind,
i cling to you, I cling to life
and this cuts deep
just like a knife in my pride
with parting fears I say goodbye
the silence helps to close my eyes
my lips are closed,
my eyes are dry – I won´t cry

if you believe
that you were innocent
i will show you it isn´t right
if you believed
it was right to close your eyes
i will show you it isn´t right
is there a meaning
in this life
is there a meaning
in what I say
i will tell you
what I saw another day
