Shoot him again cause I can see his soul dancing.
Shoot him again cause I can see his soul dancing.
I'm gonna miss this place.

If you give it to me, I'll give it back much harder.
If you treat me like a son, then I'll treat you like a daughter.
Everyone has a future; everyone has a soul.
Everyone has a heart, they have a mind, they have control.

The coffin dancer dances like he has something to prove because he does.
He sleeps a couple hours and in the morning, hates the morning when he wakes up.

The coffin dancer dances like he wants to make a friend but he does not.
The eye contact he makes with each and every one he doesn't see is kind of hot

I don't wanna go to here. There's nothing left to go on here.
There's nothing left to go on but the loving sense of tender in your eyes.

Shoot him again cause I can see his soul dancing.
Shoot him again cause I can see his soul dancing.
I'm gonna miss this place. I'm gonna miss its face
Just like a vein inside my heart.

    General CommentThe first line is a paraphrased quote from 'Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans', where Nick Cage's partners kill a drug dealer, but his soul continues dancing.

    General CommentThe part you can't make out:
    "The eye contact he makes with each and everyone he doesn't see is kinda hot"

    General Commentthere's another Bad Lieutenant reference at the end of the last song on the album -- "prepare to die: Bad Lieutenant II is the greatest movie ever."
