I'm Sinking Down

Down & Out

I'm Sinking Down

I'm sinking down low

I’m going down to hell

To see some old friends

Cause there’s no redemption for me on this land

But I’ll drink whiskey and listen to the band

Dance with a girl who I can’t stand

Play with her heart like the strings from the band

And when I’m done I’ll be losing again

I’ll drink till I sleep with a gun in my hand

Quivers and shakes and aches are all I feel now

I’m going down low don’t plan on rising again

And I’ll go and I’ll go without any friends

Cause the bottle is warm and the river looks sweet

But I’m diving deep to never come back to the land

And if my soul rise it will all disappear

Like my fate in a mirror that was never here

I’m going back to hell to see what’s there

And I don’t mind if it all disappears

Like the river that runs I was already there

And nothing can save me no way no how

So I’ll dance with the demons

And we’ll all have a cheer

Think I might have a beer

Drown in that river

But I was already there
