every heartbeat, it sounds an echo
tells you if you are near enough
or if you have to let go
of what hides your likeness
holds the shadows
of those things that trip you up
take you off to battle

will you
carry my weight
i'm a dark passenger
and you need someone
someone to look after
i'm a saint a sinner
yeah, one of God's ambassadors
and we'll carry a dark passenger
yeah, a dark passenger

there's a dark street
where we can lay low
climb the rooftops
wait for sun's first glow
'cause i need some proof
that there's tomorrow
just need to buy some time
all of mine is borrowed

will you
carry my weight
i'm a dark passenger....

when all is said and done
i'm just looking for someone...

who will?
carry my weight
'cause i'm a dark passenger...
