"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 CommentOk, but who is it that he can take down with him? I believe he was talking to someone, or to people in general. The God is not the witness, he kept asking for a God with a witness. Is there anyone who saw any God? He is probably scared of death that came so close with the drugs and now he is asking for God, who exists. It may be either the person, or the God, he could take down with him, where he is so lonely.
