Nomeansno – Going Nowhere lyrics

Hey, buddy, you know me, I guess you've heard my name

I was the greatest, I had my share of fame
The girls, they loved me, you know I had them all
But now, they don't love me, now they don't care at all

I thought I could not fail
I had it by the tail
I thought I owned this town
But now I'm headed down, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

I was the strongest, I pushed the world around
I stood the tallest, I turned it upside down
I thought I had it, I thought I knew it all
Why couldn't I see it, the writing on the wall
I wanted everything
I had it on a string
I soared above the ground
But now I'm coming down, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

Hey buddy, you've seen me, you know my face and name
Hey, buddy, listen to me, don't turn and walk away
I thought I had it made
I thought I'd never fade
I thought I'd live forever
I guess I should've know better, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all
