Sun sets' cross the ocean
I'm a thousand miles from anywhere
My pocketbook and my heart both just got stolen
And the sun acts like she don't even care
The wind blows cold when you reach the top
It feels like someone's face is stuck to the bottom of my shore
I got a plastic Jesus, a cordless telephone for every corner of my room
Got everybody but you telling me what to do
But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
I've been down so long
That the end must be drawing near
I look to everybody but me to answer my prayers
'Til I saw an angel in a bathroom who said she saw no one worth saving anywhere
And a blind man on the corner said it's simple, like flipping a coin
Don't mater what side it lands on if it's someone else's dime
But I've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
That the end must be drawing near
I take a trip, I catch a train, I catch a plane
I got a ticket in my hand
And then a man takes my money
And like cattle we all stand
But we've been down so long
Ooh, it can't be longer still
We've been down so long
The end must be. ..
I know the end must be. ..
Oh, I know the end must be drawing near
Oh the end. ..
Oh the end. ..
Oh the end. ..
