"Witness" as written by and Conner/lanegan/conner....
It's taken everything
Everything I got and it's hung me on the line
Water rising up over me
And I think I'm gonna die
Think I'm gonna die

I told a lie
That's what I said
I told the one you know I'll always keep
Whose God is mine (3x's)
Whose God is
The one with the witness

Shine your lonely light on me
I'll be there to hold the mirror
I can take you down with me
Show you lonely, lonely, lonely

Death wastes no time it seems
And it's hung me on the line
Hung me on the line
Hard rain falling all over me
And I think I'm gonna die
Think I'm gonna die

I told a lie
That's what I said
I told the one you know I'll always keep
Whose God is mine (3x's)
Whose God is
The one with the witness
Shine

    General CommentI think their is a religious aspect but i think it's about either questioning it, or it's about losing faith because a lot of bad things are happening, thats why he reffers to death and pain,

    i think the lonely light refers to the cartoon light thing that represents god, saying that if someone would just give a sign it would make it easier to believe
