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
