Dead Men Walking

Janis Ian

Who'll die by fire
Who will seek the flame
Whose heart's desire
has the most to gain
Who will beg for mercy
Who will bow their head
Who will suffer gladly
Who will welcome death

Who'll play the hero
Who will turn and run
Who'll always follow
someone else's drum
Who will die of beauty
Who will die of hope
Who will tell it truly
Who will leave it cloaked

Dead men walking in the world tonight
Dead men talking in my ear
I am afraid to ask too much
(and disappear when they are near)

Who'll call me lover
Who will call me friend
Who'll be my brother
Who will just pretend
Who will I surrender
Who will I defend
Will I be remembered
Will I rise again

Dead men walking in the world tonight
Dead men talking in my ear
I am afraid to ask too much
of what I hear when they are near

Dead men walking in the world tonight
Dead men talking in my ear
I am afraid to ask too much
They disappear when you are near
