Dead Man Walking
by Skillet

Album: Victorious - The Aftermath


Intro: John Cooper
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man

Verse 1: John Cooper
Like a nightmare, terrorized
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Try to run but I'm paralyzed
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Refrain: John Cooper
Blaze with the rage, I'm caged in flames of fire
Blaze like a beast to feast on my desire
Break, make me human, You can take me higher
Make the nightmare end

Pre-Chorus: Jen Ledger
Make me somethin' real

Chorus: John Cooper
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I need electric shock
Your love's the lightnin' rod
Wake up the dead man walkin'
Without love, not enough
Gotta taste, gotta touch You to feel You
Like fire in my veins
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I'm just a dead man walkin'

Post-Chorus: John Cooper
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man

Verse 2: John Cooper
Bag of bones but I got no blood
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Comin' forth like Lazarus
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Refrain: John Cooper
Blaze with the rage, I'm caged in flames of fire
Blaze like a beast to feast on my desire
Break, make me human, You can take me higher
Make the nightmare end

Pre-Chorus: Jen Ledger
Make me somethin' real

Chorus: John Cooper
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I need electric shock
Your love's the lightnin' rod
Wake up the dead man walkin'
Without love, not enough
Gotta taste, gotta touch You to feel You
Like fire in my veins
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I'm just a dead man walkin'

Bridge: John Cooper
I'm wakin' up in a field of souls
My hands are twitchin' but my heart is cold
Can't stop from fallin'
Look out below

Pre-Chorus: John Cooper
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man

Chorus: John Cooper
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I need electric shock
Your love's the lightnin' rod
Wake up the dead man walkin'
Without love, not enough
Gotta taste, gotta touch You to feel You
Like fire in my veins
I'm feelin' dead inside
Waitin' to come alive
I'm just a dead man walkin'
I'm just a dead man walkin'

Post-Chorus: John Cooper
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man
Bring out the dead, the dead
Bring out the dead man
