Hanging by a thread, problems in my head,
Dont know what I said, living to be dead on the run.
Corporation greed, television need,
Overdose and bleed, pornograph obscene, Im a liar.

Theres no brakes on me, as Im running down the track.
Theyll be waiting for me, but Im never coming back.

Im going down...
To a place where I can see all there is to see in me.

Bullets in the gun, gonna have some fun,
Think Ill take a ride to the other side, till Im done.
Hole is in the vein,
Feel it numb the brain, take away the pain,
Never be the same till I die.

Theres no brakes on me, as I come around the track.
Theres no gauge to read,
Peg the needle as I hit the black.

Im going down...
To a place where I can see all there is to see in me.

Population freeze,
Modern day disease,
Brings us to our knees, see them stand in line for a cure.
Profit in the wind,
Pushing back the time that we wait in line,
Pushing back the time, its a sin.

Theres no brakes on me, as Im running down the track.
Theyll be waiting for me, but Im never coming back.

Im going down....
