"Dead Man Walkin'" as written by and Kevin Bowe....
Outside Macon, off the country road.
justice was forsaken when they let the wrong man go.
Johnny Law was shady, first one on the scene.
They called it murder in the first degree.

Dead man walkin'
Walking down the hall
Judge says guilty, but still he's standing tall
Dead man walking, they say broke the law
Taking the life of another man who done the story wrong

Line 'em up
Or let 'em down
Take 'em out
But there's more of us around
When wrong is right and right is wrong
There's a dead man walking tonight

Walk on.
Walk on.
Walk on!

If i asked you a question, would you tell the truth?
Would you pull the trigger if you were standing in his shoes?
Dead man waking
I know what I'd do
If someone hurt my baby, I'd be walking too.

Line 'em up
Or let 'em down
Take 'em out
But there's more of us around
When wrong is right and right is wrong
There's a dead man walking tonight

Walk on.
Walk on baby
Walk on
Walk on baby
Walk on

Yeah
So if i asked you that question would you tell the truth?
Dead man walkin'

    General Commentthese are my first lyrics posted. i don't know how to add vicious cycle to albums though. i think this song is about protecting your loved ones even if it means killing someone else and then having to go through the ridiculous legal process.
