It's a good thing dead men walk
And from the way they talk
13 steps will work

It's a sentenced cure
And when the state is sure
They'll plant me in the dirt

13 steps from the fix
13 steps to escape these bricks
My unlucky trip
Led me up to this
13 steps from the fix

They charged the both of us
But it's her they trust
She said it was my gun

She hid all the hints
Then wiped away her prints
They say I'm they guilty one


I'm clinking as I step
It's left then right then left
Then there's nothing left to grip

Nothing but the count
Soon I'll be in the ground
It should be over quick

13 steps from the fix
9 more to escape these bricks
Now I'm down to only 6
3 more will end this
1 more step from the fix
