Found the morning liquor found the morning light
Looking into the rearview 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 days

Left his car out in 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 (x2)
And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadow among these who know
The tale of the gansgter 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 it is that you see?
Well, is it Mr. Cadillac or you?
Walking among those who nearly found peace
Into the light, and out of the blue
And the fallen will get down on his knees (x2)
And forever the man in the coat
Will cast his shadow among these who know
The tale of the gansgter 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
Look into his eyes you'll meet a hundred angels cry

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 ohhh
Going lonely home
