Down

Twenty-five years and nothing but heartache and
Promises I couldn’t keep 
Got a pack of reds and half a mind, to end it all right here 
My wife, she’s a mess, but the kids they don’t know 
And the mortgage ain’t worth the paper it sold 
Now I can’t believe it’s finally come to this... 

The sun is shining, weeds are growing 
All this time I sit here knowin’ 
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track 
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do 
Get out first, before it gets you 
So much for a time, where things are what they sound 
We’re going down 

Minimum wage in a minimum state 
This type of failure don’t feel too great 
Either taxes or cuts don’t make no difference at all 
Takin’ a ride don’t get you real far 
Especially in someone else’s car 
But my take home pay only takes me half the way home

The sun is shining, weeds are growing  
All this time I sit here knowin’  
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track  
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do  
Get out first, before it gets you  
So much for a time, where things are what they sound  
We’re going down 
 

The sun is shining, weeds are growing  
All this time I sit here knowin’  
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track  
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do  
Get out first, before it gets you  
So much for a time, where things are what they sound  
We’re going down

We're going down...

We're going down...
