Black Fingernails, red wine
I wanna make you
All mine
A lot of people underground
You wanna get there
You gotta go straight down, straight down

There's a culture everywhere
Smoke clouds hang in the air
It's so loud, can't hear you talk
You and I should take a walk downtown
Straight down, Downtown, Straight down

The argument over god continues
In this house
All of us stand and point our fingers
At the ground
All of us stand and point our fingers
Straight down

Red letter day
Black heart
It's gonna tear you all apart
So loud, can't hear you call
You and I are gonna fall straight down

Straight down, Downtown, Straight down

The argument over god continues
In this house
All of us stand and point our fingers
At the ground
The argument overall continues
In this house
All of us stand and point our fingers
Straight down, Straight down, Straight down

Black Fingernails, red wine
I wanna make you
All mine
A lot of people underground
You wanna get there
You gotta go straight down.....

The argument over god continues
In this house
All of us stand and point our fingers
At the ground
The argument overall continues
In this house
All of us stand and point our fingers
Straight down, Straight down, Straight down
