"Down Now" as written by and Stumpf Wise....
Gotta stop now, ya get me so down
This feeling still in everyone
It's cheating ourself, gotta stop now
When you do it all this way
I've always said it's easy that way
It's easy to manipulate
And take me to war
Squirrel it away when you wake up cold and alive
You go

Butt out
Thought I had it down now
This is what I asked for
Get out
Go out
Get down now
But I'm not you so let it go

I hurried again to see if you grin
A second look is all I ask for
Nothing's wrong, when nothing's so bad
This offence is all you live for
You're so down, you make me slow down
When I forgot you're just that way
You thought you're so bad, turn me away
I know why cuz when they wanted pictures of you
Guy in his van, took you to hell and was all the rage and
I was let down, cuz people go down
Feel myself for more of the same
And now

Butt out
Thought I had it down now
This is what I asked for
Get out
Go out
Get down now
But I'm not you so let it go

Butt out
Thought I had it down now
This is what I asked for
Get out
Go out
Get down now
But I'm not you so let it go

And I waited till today to tell you gather round to get it all
And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin
And I waited till tonight to tell you gather around to get more
And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin

And I waited till tonight to tell you gather round to get it all
And I waited so alone with nothin you get by with nothin
And I waited all alone to tell you gather around to get more
And I waited till so alone with nothin you get by with nothin

    General CommentThese lyrics ARE horribly wrong - here is my take:

    Gotta stop now, ya get me so down,
    This cheating / stealing everyone,
    This cheating ourself, gotta stop now,
    When you do it all this way,
    I've always said it's easy that way,
    It's easy to manipulate,
    And take what you want,
    Squirrel it away,
    When you wake up cold and alive,
    You go:

    "But I,
    Thought I had it down now,
    And this is what I asked for,
    And I,
    Know I would get down now,
    But I'm not you so let it go,"

    Now run it again to see if you grin,
    A second look is all I ask for,
    Nothing's wrong, when nothing's so bad,
    This offense is all you live for,
    You're so down, you make me slow down,
    And I forgot you're just that way,
    You thought you're so bad, turn me away,
    I know why cuz when they wanted pictures of you,
    Got in his van, took you to hell and was all the rage and,
    I was let down, cuz people go down,
    Feel myself for more of the same,
    And now:

    "But I,
    Thought I had it down now,
    And this is what I asked for,
    And I,
    Know I would get down now,
    But I'm not you so let it go,...

    "But I,
    Thought I had it down now,
    And this is what I asked for,
    And I,
    Know I would get down now,
    But I'm not you so let it go,"

    And I waited so long to tell you gather round to get it all,
    And I waited so long for nothing you get by with nothing at all,

    And I waited so long to tell you gather round to get it all,
    And I waited so long for nothing you get by with nothing at all,

    And I waited so long to tell you gather round to get it all,
    And I waited so long for nothing you get by with nothing at all,

    And I waited so long to tell you gather round to get it all,
    And I waited so long for nothing you get by with nothing at all.
