Going Down

Going down
to the bottom
Rock bottom
To the bottom
Of a glass
on the rocks

Canít get higher
Than the smoke
Between my fingers
That lasts
long enough
To taste
Just like the fire
That lingers
just to waste
that precious air

And do you really think that I
Turn the other cheek each time
Smile when I want to cry
Wordless I just pantomime
And watch the hourglass run dry
Do you think that I am just a victim
Or a partner in your crime
And do you ever ask yourself why
Iím withering right before your eyes
Do you consider
that I might want to die

Gone down
to the bottom
To the fire pits
To the bottom
Of hell
on earth

Canít get higher
Than the heaven
To which I inspire
That I glimpse
long enough
To envision you
Just like a dream
That lingers
Like a beam
of precious light
Before night falls
