Song Meaning
Verse 1
Found the morning liquor found the morning light
Looking into the rear view mirror
The motherfuckers are all awaiting him done the line
Verse 2
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 days
Verse 3
Left his car out in the desert forever more
He's got another life now explore
And forever you will hear the people talk
How they can hear his boots out in the cold
Verse 4
And the fallen will get down on his knees
And the fallen will get down on his knees
And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadow among those who know the tale
Of the gangster who shot all his demons for good
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
Have you asked yourself what it is that you see?
Well, is it Mr. Cadillac or you?
Walking among those who nearly found peace
Verse 8
In to the light, and out of the blue
And the fallen will get down on his knees
And the fallen will get down on his knees
Verse 9
And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadow among those who know
The tale of the gangster who shot all his demons for good
Verse 10
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
Verse 11
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
Look into his eyes you'll meet a hundred angels cry
Verse 12
Face the mirror, you gonna seek another day
You gonna face the mirror, you gonna seek another day
You gonna face the mirror, you gonna seek another day
You gonna face the mirror, you gonna seek another day
You gonna oh, going lonely home
