Come Down

when you finally have your final break down there’s no way out
there’s no where to go, when you lay in the mud with your face down
nothing to write about, all the words are empty, there’s nothing left to say now
hey now, you’re better off since you came down!
hey now, hey sister, you’re better off since you came down!
hey now, hey brother, you’re better off since you came down!

when you’re downside up, and there’s nothing left to find out
there’s no where to go, when you’ve been to places, seen faces in my town
you’ve followed my foot steps and are about to find out the ending of my route
hey now, you’re better off since you came down!
hey now, hey sister, you’re better off since you came down!
hey now, hey brother, you’re better off since you came down!

it’s an ugly truth
but somebody got to live this life, sadly it had to be you
it’s an ugly truth
but somebody got to live this life, sadly it had to be you
it’s an ugly truth
but somebody got to live this life, sadly it had to be you
it’s an ugly truth
you’ve lived a whole life and only made it to the ads in the preview

let’s rub it in your face, now!
when you’re low up and running, there’s nothing left to achieve that’s noble now
let’s rub it in your face, now!
there’s nothing left to do, when you’ve done things and you’re getting older now
let’s rub it in your face, now!
you’ve done things you regret and you’re getting lower and lower now
let’s rub it in your face, now!
when you’re too old and weak to carry your sins on your shoulders now
let’s change now

hey now, you’re better off without your beliefs!
hey now, hey sister, you’re better off without your beliefs!
hey now, hey brother, you’re better off being on!
come on...
hey now, you’re better off without your beliefs!
hey now, hey sister, you’re better off without your beliefs!
hey now, hey brother, you’re better off being on!
come on...
you’re better off coming down since the day I came down.
