Found the morning liquor, found the morning light
Look into the rear view mirror
The motherfuckers are all awaiting him down the line
Sick and tired of fighting all the crap inside.

Starting a new day
Breathing in the morning
Got a feeling leaving something behind
He sees the lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, day

Left his car out in the desert forever more
He's got another life now to explore
And forever you will hear the people talk
How they can hear his boots out in the cold

And the fallen will get down on his knees, yeah
And the fallen will get down on his knees, yeah

And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadows among those who know
The tale of the gangster
Who shot all his demons for good

Then along came the mirror and the ripper
What do you see in the night?
Passing shadows that can scar your soul
And make you feel demonized

Hear a match and see the lightning from the ripper
What do you have in your mind?
We believe that he comes for another wicked destiny night
Dazing in the dark the life line going cold in the fire

Have you asked yourself, what is it that you see?
Well, is it Mr Cadillac or you?
Walking among those who nearly found piece into the light, and out of the blue
Into the light that now is never blue

And the fallen will get down on his knees, yeah
And the fallen will get down on his knees, yeah

And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadows among those who know
The tale of the gangster
Who shot all his demons for good

Then along came the mirror and the ripper
What do you see in the night?
Passing shadows that can scar your soul
And make you feel demonized

Hear a match and see the lightning from the ripper
What do you have in your mind?
We believe that he calls for another wicked destiny night
Dazing in the dark the life line going cold in the fire
Look into his eyes you'll meet a hundred angel's cry

Face the mirror you gonna seek another day
You gonna face the mirror you gonna see another day
You gonna face the mirror you gonna see another day
You gonna face the mirror you gonna see another day
Going lonely home
