lyrics

oh the shadow of death keeps me moving on.
a payment of debts to the earth on which we walk upon.
a moment of rest sees me closer to the carrion.
but the shadow of death keeps me moving on.

as i draw each breath i breath in what's an unsettling calm.
so the shadow of death whispers to me, move along move along.
cuz when you reach out, you reach out to touch me,
that's when i know in my heart that it must be death
that keeps me moving on.

when you turn and look over your shoulder,
that's when i see in your eyes how you know yeah,
when you call out, your voice shakes and echos,
cause the shadow of death stand beside you.
when you reach out, you reach out to touch me,
that's when i know in my heart that it must be death
that keeps me moving on.

no person who seeks to escape it
should ever be treated with trust by the living,
still the shadow of death keeps me moving.
