Going To Hell Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Follow Me Down

Since I met you I've been crazy
Since I've been with you I've been lost
You make everything see hazy
Love comes with such a cost

Have I lost my mind?
Have I lost my mind?
Have I lost my mind?

Follow me down to the river
Drink while the water is clean
Follow me down to the river tonight
I'll be down here on my knees

So follow me down to the river
Follow me down through the trees
Follow me down to the river, man
I'll be down here on my knees
I'll be down here on my knees

Nights avoiding things unholy
Your hand slips across my skin
I go down on you so slowly
Don't confess none of your sins

Have I lost my mind?
Have I lost my mind?

Follow me down to the river
Drink while the water is clean
Follow me down to the river tonight
I'll be down here on my knees

So follow me down to the river
Follow me down through the trees
Follow me down to the river, man
I'll be down here on my knees
I'll be down here on my knees

When you're young you always take what you can get
Even bicycles and sprinklers get you wet
Now I know that there's a different way to die
My body breathes
Heart still beats
But I am not alive

Follow me down to the river
Drink while the water is clean
Follow me down to the river tonight
I'll be down here on my knees

Follow me down to the river
Follow me down through the trees
Follow me down to the river, man
I'll be down here on my knees
I'll be down here on my knees

Young love as sweet as can be

Going To Hell

(The end is the end)
(Don't bless me father for I have sinned)

Father did you miss me,
I've been locked up a while.
I got caught for what I did but took it all in style.
Laid to rest all my confessions I gave way back when.
Now I'm versed in so much worse,
So I am back again.
And he said

For the lines that I take, I'm going to hell!
For the love that I make, I'm going to hell!

Gettin' heavy with the devil, you can hear the wedding bells.

Father did you miss me,
Don't ask me where I've been.
You know I know,
Yes, I've been told I redefine a sin.
I don't know what's driving me to put this in my head.
Maybe I wish I could die, maybe I am dead!
And he said

For the lives that I fake, I'm going to hell!
For the vows that I break, I'm going to hell!

For the ways that I hurt, when I'm hiking up my skirt.
I am sitting on a throne while they're buried in the dirt.

For the man that I hate, I'm going to hell!

Gettin' heavy with the devil, you can hear the wedding bells.

Please forgive me father,
I didn't mean to bother you.
The devil's in me father.
He's inside of everything I do.

For the life that I take, I'm going to hell!
For the laws that I break, I'm going to hell!
For the love that I hate, I'm going to hell!
For the lies that I make, I'm going to hell!

For the way I condescend and never lend a hand.
My arrogance is making this head buried in the sand.
For the souls I forsake, I'm going to hell!

Gettin' married to the devil, you can hear the wedding bells.

Heaven Knows

Jimmy's in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close
You can hear him cry

Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing it
Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below

Judy's in the front seat picking up trash
Living on the dough
Gotta make that cash
Won't be pretty
Won't be sweet
She's just sittin' here on her feet

Sing it
Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Go
Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Sing
Oh, lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Oh, Lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

I've had better days, man
I've seen better days
I've had better ways, man
I know better ways

One, two, three and four
The devil's knocking at your door
Caught in the eye of a dead man's lie
Show you life with your head held high
Now you're on your knees
With your head hung low
Big man tells you where to go
Tell 'em it's good
Tell 'em okay
Don't do a goddamn thing they say

Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh, lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

I've seen better ways, man
I know better ways
I've seen better days, man
I've had better days

Jenna's in the back with a pocket of high
If you listen close
You can hear the crying

Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh, lord, tell us so
We belong way down below
Oh, lord, heaven knows
We belong way down below
Oh, lord, tell us so
We belong way down below

Way down below, way down below
Way down below, way down below

House On A Hill

Somewhere in the end of all this hate
There's a light ahead
That shines into this grave that's in the end of all this pain

In the night ahead there's a light upon this
House on a hill
The living, living still
Their intention is to kill and they will, they will
But the children are doing fine
I think about them all the time
Until they drink their wine and they will, they will, they will

Somewhere in the end we're all insane
To think that light ahead can save us from this
Grave that's in the end of all this pain

In the night ahead there's a light upon this
House on a hill
The living, living still
Their intention is to kill and they will, they will
But the children are doing fine
I think about them all the time
Until they drink their wine and they will, they will, they will

I am not afraid
I won't burn out in this place
My intention is to fade and I will, I will

In this house on a hill
The dead are living still
Their intention is to kill and they will, they will
Keep your children safe inside
Out of pocket, out of mind
Until they drink their wine and they will, they will, they will

Sweet Things

Evil had knockin' at my door
Evil making me its whore
I don't mind if you take whats yours
but give me mine

Evil, want you to know
I'm much too [?] to be owned
I don't mind if you take whats yours
but give me mine

Hey there, little girl
Come inside I've got some sweet things
Put your hair in curls
Paint you up just like a drag queen

I don't mind decay?
You are the night that saves my day

Hey there, little girl
Come inside, don't be afraid I'll keep you safe

I'm evil
Knocking at your door

Making you my whore
I don't mind if you take whats yours
but give me mine

I am like decay
I rot the ground to guide your way, oh

Hey there, little girl
Come inside I've got some sweet things
Put your hair in curls
Paint you up just like a drag queen

How you like me now?
Did I succeeded in making you proud?

Hey there, little girl
Come inside don't be afraid I'll keep you safe

Dear Sister

Dear sister, can you help me lie?
I've told the truth so many years
No one seems to wanna hear that
I'm not someone else inside

I've been alone this lonely road
Looks like I'm not coming home
But I don't mind, please don't cry

Absolution

Jump into the sun
Dear boy what are you running from
Everyone has got to be saved
I have heard a voice if it came down to make a choice
I would be the one who's replaced

Time keeps rolling on
I need my
Time keeps rolling on
I need my Absolution

Run boy be a man
With legs too weak to make a stand
We're all crucified in the end
Can you hear a voice
Decipher it through all this noise
You'll be left with nothing again

Time keeps rolling on
I need my
[x3]
Time keeps rolling on
I need my Absolution

Jump into the sun
Dear boy what are you running from
The answer you will find in your grave

Time keeps rolling on
I need my
But time keeps rolling on
I need my Absolution

[x2]
Time keeps rolling on
I need my Absolution

[x3]
Boys on the outside of heaven
But I could be wrong

Blame Me

Sittin' in the back
Baby park it or drive
Breathing out the cracks just to stay alive
Earthquake body shake joke is all on me
I remember when I remember the time
Didn't have to take just to feel alive
Eyes black head back joke is all on me

Blame all your life on me [x2]
I gave it all for free
Blame all your life on me
All on me, oh [x2]

Everything I wanted was in my hand
I gave it all up for a better man
Who beat me down but on the ground I stand
Sitting in the back baby hardly alive
If I'm about to crack kick the pedal and drive
All this time the joke was all on me
Blame all your life on me
Just blame all your life on me
I gave it all for free
Blame all your life on me

Hit me with the wind again hit me with the wind I know
I have lost a friend again I have lost a friend I know how the
Story goes

Blame all your life on me [x2]
Cus I gave it all for free
So blame all your life on me
All on me, oh [x2]
It's all on me, oh
All on me, oh

Burn

Here comes the darkness
It's eating on my soul
Now that the spark has
Run out of control
This fire is raging
I can't find the door
I just want to die here
But you wanted more

You want me to burn
Want me to burn
Want me to hurt
And maybe I will finally learn

Here comes the darkness
It's eating on my brain
Now that the light has
Driven me insane
This fire is blazing
And I'm still inside
I just want to die here
You won't let me out alive

You want me to burn
Want me to burn
Want me to hurt
And maybe I will finally learn

Why'd You Bring A Shotgun To The Party

Alone, afraid, the kitchen of a maid
Sitting in your room drooling like a loser with all this doom
You think, then you start to drink
Then you get so paranoid with all the drugs they fill you with, then boom

Does it make you feel like a man? Boom
It's not the size we understand, boom
You think you're gonna get with me
You're never gonna get with me
You're never gonna dance with me

I admit, I feel like you, like shit
But I don't go out and take it out on everyone about it
We're all part of the system
You wanna start a war?
Feel better we won't miss it

Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Everybody's got one, there's nothing new about it
Want to make a statement? You should have come without it

You turn the TV on, watch it if you dare
You see a politician and you start to pull your hair
Whistle to dimensions see there's really nothing there
You want it so much you think they think they f*cking care and boom

Do you think they hear you now? And boom
Making noises in the crowd, all in the way that you're using
You love it so much then why do you abuse it?

Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Everybody's got one, there's nothing new about it
Want to make a statement? You should have come without it

We're all part of the system
Blow 'em up, shoot 'em down
'Cause you can f*cking miss it

We're all part of the system
Blow 'em up, shoot 'em down
'Cause you can f*cking miss it

Alone, afraid, you want to make 'em pay

Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Everybody's got one, there's nothing new about it
Want to get the girl? Then you should have come without it

Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?
Why'd you bring a shotgun to the party?

F*cked Up World

Back door bitches begging me to behold
All their cash and cars platinum silver'n gold
We're like 'diamonds in the sky' that is what we are told
No mountain made of money can buy you a soul

I can see it [x3]
Coming down
I can see it [x3]
Coming down

It's a f*cked up world
What do you get
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette
It's a f*cked up world
What do you get from it
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette [x2]

Banging little boys bugging me on the bus
Say they want to know who did it but the answer's really us see
I don't know you why do you want to know me
You ain't gettin what you want unless you're getting it for free

I can feel it [x3]
Coming down
I can feel it [x3]
Coming down

It's a f*cked up world
What do you get
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette
It's a f*cked up world
What do you get from it
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette [x3]

Back to these backdoor bitches begging me to behave
Jamming Jesus down my throat note I don't want to be saved
Ain't a chain on my brain I'm nobody's slave
I got one foot in the cradle and one in the grave

It's a f*cked up world
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette
It's a f*cked up world
What do you get from it
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette [x3]

It's a f*cked up world [x11]
Sex and love and guns like a cigarette [x8]

Waiting For A Friend

The night is when
The ghosts all come out
Playin' with my head
Spin it all around
This room is like a prison cell
I'm all by myself
I'm waiting for my friend
To come and break me out

You left me today
Lyin' on the floor
I wanted you to stay
Seems you wanted more
This bed is like a prison cell
Cause I'm all by myself
Still waiting for my friend
To come and break me out

And there's stone cold bars on my door
For this stone cold heart

Some people say
Life is like a lie
Take it day by day
Never knowing why
My head is like a prison cell
I'm all by myself
I'm waiting for my friend
To come and break me out
Still waiting for my friend
To come and break me out

Kill Me

(Japanese Bonus Track)

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone

Let me open up the discussion with, I'm not impressed with any mother f*cking word I say
See I lied that I cried when he came inside
And now I'm burning a highway to Hades
Shut the f*ck up!
When I'm trying to think
I got to keep my concentration, give me one more drink
And then I'll try to remember all the advice that my good book told me

And all the lost souls say...

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
Someone get me out of sun

Drugs, bars, backseats of cars
Blowing boys, what a boring life I've led so far
Just a prime thirteen when I rode his machine
Tried to keep my body dirty and my eyes closed and clean
So with a wink and a smile and a vial of meth
I took his hand and we walked through the shadow of death
And then I try to remember all the advice that my teacher told me

And all the lost souls say...

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
And get me out of the sun
Someone get me out of the sun [x2]

Deep, deeper, deeper inside
Pull the wool nice and tight so that it covers you eyes
Can't find a God, a love, a Jesus, a father
I don't even care that much
So why do I even bother?

So let me just end how I was gonna begin
Don't waste your time waiting cause I'm going back in

Now if I could just remember all the advice that my mother told me
And all the
And all the lost souls say...

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
Or get me out of the sun

Every day I wake up
Every day I wake up alone
(Kill me, just kill me)
Just get me out of the sun
(Kill me, just kill me)
Someone get me out of the sun
(Kill me, just kill me)
Someone get me out of the sun
