Dead Man Walking - David Bowie

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

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 thru' the crack in the
past
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 the
rain slicked streets

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 thru' the crack in the
past
Like a dead man walking
