lyrics

(Words/music by P.Mark)

I don't hear no trains
I mark time by the falling of the rain
I got no company except for the hand that feeds
The meal plate under my door
I ain't the last, ain't the first
But I'm the only man in Leavenworth

Floor of earth, walls of stone
A man lives as he dreams: all alone
The darkness of my days seems so far away
From the green, green grass of home
I know I ain't the first
But I'm the only man in Leavenworth

Every man must fall
The story's been scratched on these walls
The words that I read are the desperate pleas
Of the man put here before me
I ain't the last, ain't the first
But I'm the only man in Leavenworth

This whole world ain't what it seems
I try to sleep but I always dream
Of the day when these chains and the falling of the rain
Are put to rest with me in a deep dark grave
From death to birth
I'm the only man in Leavenworth
