Dead Men is a sign which can be found on a fence in the labyrinth of Silent Hill 2. There are three different variants of the sign dependent on the riddle difficulty and is used as a clue in order to complete Free the Innocent Man.
- "He committed an evil crime.
- He turned a happy home into a pile of ash.
- For that, he should die.
- They also committed crimes.
- They tried to fraud and trick others.
- So their reward too is natural.
- Even he cannot be forgiven,
- My friend without his left hand.
- And so his death bothers me not.
- And what of him?
- He also is not sinless.
- There is only one here who is innocent.
- The missing child was nowhere to be found,
- And so there was no proof of his guilt.
- His death was a tragedy.
- That is all I wish to say.
- It was neither justice nor retribution."
- "Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree
- How many dead men do you see?
- Tongue turned blue and face gone grey
- Watch them as they twist and sway
- The first one killed the butcher man
- Then cooked him in the frying pan
- Served him to his hungry guests
- And gave them seconds on request
- The next one with his smile and sweets
- Stole poor children off the streets
- To men who dressed unsavory
- He sold them into slavery
- Breaking into home at night
- The thief he had a nasty fright
- Filled his foolish head with ale
- Woke in the morn in the county jail
- The artist with his daunting skill
- Tried his hand at painting bills
- But caught in rain he was undone
- When the ink he’d use did start to run
- With promises of great return
- Taking gold he did not earn
- Bundled it up out of sight
- Quietly slipped off into night
- Three houses into ashes burned
- The sheriff with no place to turn
- Did spy a stranger in his town
- Locked him up and beat him down
- Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree
- How many dead men do you see?
- Six feet long and six men wide
- Round their necks the noose be tied."
- "I do not wish to die.
- But tomorrow I will climb the thirteen steps.
- Please someone - answer me,
- Why must I die come the morning?
- The man imprisoned beside me believed me.
- “Because they’re all insane, that’s why,” he said
- Of course I know his opinion will change nothing.
- “Now you know why I struck out at them,” he muttered.
- The man who was executed yesterday, the one who had
- said his job was to sell dreams, said that was not true.
- But the man who is to be executed the day after tomorrow for
- stealing children shouted back that it was true.
- The man who was hung today did not answer.
- “They’ll kill me either way,” he said.
- He was caught embezzling public money, so he hasn’t any hope for mercy.
- The man who is always quietly smiling to himself said “I am
- happy for I will soon :be with her.” I do not wish to die.
- I long only to return home.
- But I know it is not to be.
- Though I have done nothing, this crime has been thrust upon me.
- Someone save me.
- This is not judgement.
- They are bloodthirsty and I am their sacrificial lamb!"
