Shinedown - Dead don't die

Black line for the ninth time
I'm on a first name basis with the afterlife
And there's a feeling when you're the demon
I've dug myself out of the dead for a reason

And I'm never running, so try it again
Starting me over, right back at the end
"When's the last time you were afraid?"
"I haven't been afraid a day in my life"

The dead don't die, the heart still beats
Head held high, I haunt these streets
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die
Knock me down six feet deep
One more round, no repeat
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die

In the mirror, no reflection
Another day, just another resurrection
Where's the glory? Just another story
I won't be the ending that was written for me


And I'm never running, so try it again
Starting me over, right where I began
"Huh, it's pretty boring, isn't it, this existence?"
"Might as well not take beer off the table"

The dead don't die, the heart still beats
Head held high, I haunt these streets
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die
Knock me down six feet deep
One more round, no repeat
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die

"I think everyone's a little scared of what's next
Live or die, live or die"

The dead don't die, the heart still beats
Head held high, I haunt these streets
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die
Knock me down six feet deep
One more round, no repeat
Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die (hey)

Life's killed me a hundred thousand times
You can try, you can try, but the dead don't die
