redundancy, corrupt politicians

Deeper Still

A letter came this morning
And the court is now informing
If I don't pay up by Saturday
I'll wind up in the tank
Money wasn't anything
But now it seems like everything
It's tearing me in two
I guess my ship sank.
Desperation dawning
She's eternally in mourning
He was the best one in the world
Now he's the best one lying dead
A hopeless situation
When I needed a vacation
I'm redundant of the line
In the factory shed.

CHORUS
-----------
Ergo, I'm falling
Ergo, I'm falling
Let go...

I'm going down, just not today
I'm going down, get out of my way
I'm going down, I will be free
I'm going down, you're coming with me.
-----------

Who are you to tell me
What is wrong and what is right
I don't wanna live the daylight
I'll live it all at night
Indiscretion is a weapon
I can make a true confession
Your name is on the bullet
And the bullet's in the gun.
You live in the lighter world
I live in the darker world
You don't understand me
You're a victim of a book
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not kill
Open up your eyes
And keep your mouth shut.

CHORUS

I did my time for you councillor - fourteen years
You made me!

I'm going down, just not today
I'm going down, get out of my way
I'm going down, I will be free
I'm going down, you're coming with me.
