02. Dead Man (Carry Me)

Good Monsters
by Jars of Clay



 

January 1, I got a lot of things on my mind
Looking at my body through a new spy satellite
I try to lift a finger but I don't think I can make the call
So, tell me if I move 'cause I don't feel anything at all....

Carry Me, I'm just a dead man lying on the carpet can't find a heart beat
Make me breathe, I want to be a new man, tired of the old one, out with the old plan

I woke up from a dream about an empty funeral
But it was better than the party full of people I don't really know.
They've got hearts to break and burn, dirty hands to feel the earth
There is something in my veins but I can't seem to make it work...won't work

So, carry me, I'm just a dead man lying on the carpet, can't find a heartbeat
Make me breathe, I want to be a new man, tired of the old one, out with the old plan..

Can you find a beat, inside of me? Any pulse? Getting worse. Any pulse, getting worse? Inside of me....
Can you find a beat.

Carry me, I'm just a dead man lying on the carpet, can't find a heartbeat
make me breathe, I want to be a new man, tired of the old one, out with the old plan
Carry me, I'm just a dead man lying on the carpet can't find a heartbeat...
make me breathe, I want to be a new man, tired of the old one, out with the old plan.

Behind the Song:
"Itís the context of relationships thatís deeper, thatís much more vulnerable and honest. And being OK, that process has allowed us to accept who we are. Itís allowed us to accept that there are those dark places. Iím not so surprised anymore, and it takes a big weight off. Weíre not secluded anymore. Iím not having to show people this rot of the controlled idea of me, I can show somebody the real me, and they have to contend with that. We call that ďbringing the weight.Ē We bring our own weight into conversations, into our opinions, into our songwriting, weíre being freed up to say this stuff and not have carry the weight of how someone else has to deal with that." - Dan Haseltine (Jars Of Clay)
