​Dead Man Walking

This song is by Occult and appears on the album Of Flesh And Blood (1999).

Why, tell me why am I down here in chains
I have done nothing wrong but give in to the pains
Why tell me why I found the missing cure
To ride me of all evil to make me clean and pure

You have been found guilty
By twelve of your equal
There will be no escape
This will not have a sequel
You killed eighteen without remorse
You ended life without a cause
You took innocent lives away
But now you will have to pay

Why, tell me why I did what I've been told
I pleased the demons in my head
Now I just want to forget
Why, tell me why can't you look the other way
Can't I end all this suffering
Please don't make me pray

You have been found guilty
By twelve of your equal
There will be no escape
This will not have a sequel
You killed eighteen without remorse
You ended life without a cause
You took innocent lives away
But now you will have to pay

As I look through my hands
And see them purpose my last meal
I wonder in my dreams
As to what I have seen
Can it really be so true
What I have done
And did they really sentence me to the chair
Fear that they came here
And chained me down
Escort me through the courtyard
Down to the site
The place that holds my abomination
My final hour, minute and second have passed

Dead man walking no longer walking

Why, tell me why am I down here in chains
I have done nothing wrong but give in to the pains
Why tell me why I found the missing cure
To ride me of all evil to make me clean and pure

You have been found guilty
By twelve of your equal
There will be no escape
This will not have a sequel
You killed eighteen without remorse
You ended life without a cause
You took innocent lives away
But now you will have to pay

Why, tell me why
I did what I've been told
I pleased the demons in my head
Now I just want to forget

Why, tell me why
Can't you look the other way
Can't I end all this suffering
Please don't make me pray
