"Down in the Dark" as written by Mark Lanegan and Mike Johnson....
Baby, you're goin' down in the dark
Show my lonely night is fallin'
I don't have very long
I think my blood might boil
Then my veins might burn
And you're gonna make it better for a little while

Baby, you're gonna die someday
See you when you're crawlin', wasted
Then you'll start to fade
That won't be so I'm sinkin' faster
I wouldn't wait so long
It won't get any easier in the dark

Oh yeah
You will
You will
You will
You will
You will

Baby, you're goin' down in the dark
Think my lonely night is fallin'
I don't have very long
Think my blood might boil
And then my veins might burn
And you're gonna make it better for a little while

Oh yeah
You will [Repeat x11]

    It's most likely about drugs, particularly heroin since they were both addicts when this song was recorded. To me it sounds like a double entendre, meaning it can also be about sex.
