Dead Or Alive Submit Correct Lyrics

There in the shadows, looks like a hand
Without its owner to give it a command
It's got a purpose but I don't know what it is
I'm in trouble

There in the streets looks like a man
But something's wrong that I don't understand
His eyes are open but he don't see a thing
His skin is peeling off, his bones are sticking out, I'm getting scared

Oh, my god
(Is it dead?)
Is it living?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

Hiding in the cupboards like little mice
Hiding in the refrigerator, that isn't nice
Now it's not an animal, it don't have legs
No one else can see it

It moves so fast, corner of my eye
Look again it's gone, it's hiding
Won't somebody help me, doesn't anybody care?
It waits so patiently for me to lose my guard, I'm getting scared

Oh, my god
(Is it dead?)
Is it living?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

Is it dead?
Is it dead, is it?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead, is it?

I remember there was a time
When dead and buried meant just that
Underneath the cold dark ground
Things stay put

Oh, them bones
They make them bodies walk
Them bones, them bones
If they could only talk

Oh, my god
(Is it dead?)
Is it living?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

Is it dead?
Is it dead, is it?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead, is it?

Is it dead?
Is it dead, is it?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)
Is it dead or alive?

(Is it dead?)
Is it dead?
(Is it dead?)

Is it dead?
Is it dead?
Is it dead?
Is it dead?

Is it dead?
Is it dead?
Is it dead?
Is it dead?
Is it dead?
