Down, down, down

I listen to the troubled heartbeat of this rotten town
I fall on my knees, down, down, down

Into grey darkness, on the trash strewn ground
The air is contaminated, in a filthy sound

Colors seep into the sidewalk crack
Where neon dies, stabbed in the back

A maze of roads, each leading to nowhere
Lost in the fog, the diseased city air

Storm clouds gather, like an army preparing for war
Delirious living death, more, more, more

The city is sleeping, dreaming florescent dreams
I am awake, listening to their screams

I am desperate, in the fading darkness of this town
With a gown of sorrow, and a hate hardened crown

A soft dawn spills rain across the sleeping land
I can only smile, holding a razor blade in heart and hand
