In the middle of a gun fight In the center of a restaurant They say, “come with your arms raised high!”
Well they’re never gonna get me Like a bullet through a flock of doves To wage this war against your faith in me, Your life will never be the same On your mother’s eyes say a prayer Say a prayer
[Chorus] Now, but I can’t And I don’t know How we’re just human as god had made us Well I can’t, well I can’t Too much, too late and just not enough of us Paying more for your dying wish I kiss your lips again
We lost three of the cards, and the checkers are lost My cellmate is a killer, he made me do push-ups Well nobody cares if you’re losing yourself Am I losing myself? I miss my mom Give me the chair, a lethal injection A swing from the rope if you dare But nobody knows, imma drop my soap
[Chorus] Now, well I cant And I don’t know How we’re just human as god had made us Well I cant, well I cant Too much, too late and just not enough of us Paying more for your dying wish I kiss your lips again
To your room What they ask of you Will make you want to sit So long But I dont remember Why remember?
Life is but a dream for the dead And well I, I wont go down by myself But ill go down with my friends Now now now now now now now now now now
