And this just in,
We're killing ourselves slowly
And we're out to sea
With cloudy skies.

We'll never know
The man behind the curtain
and so thank you
And good night.

We're going down
At least we look good.
Roll out the red carpet
Cause I will not repent.

And we're going down
At least we look good.
I'm breaking, but drowning
Looks like our debts are counting.

Feel so cold.
Slowly my lungs are filling.
Maybe there's still hope,
Or maybe I'll choke.

I took the oath,
I prayed for God to save me,
But he left me here alone.

We're going down
At least we look good.
Roll out the red carpet
Cause I will not repent.

We're going down
At least we look good.
I'm breaking, but drowning.
Looks like our debts are counting.

So pal, you ready to pay for my sins?

My eyes have seen the glory of
The coming of the Lord.
I kneel down, at the gates
Where I was born.

Here's to a life I regret.
And all my good intentions.
I never said that I was heaven sent.

Here's to a life I regret.
Will I be ending this?

There's no time to get away,
There's no place left to hide.
There's no time to get away,
There's no place left for us to run.

We're going down
At least we look good.
Roll out the red carpet.
I'm not going to repent.

We're going down
At least we look good.
I'm breaking, but drowning.
Looks like our debts are counting.

We've got blood on our hands
We've got blood on our hands
We're going down as I spit at the sky.
With the mirror, come say we eye!

    General Commentjpeeples4444, you shouldnt talk about not havin the lyrics right when you yourself dont have them right;

    "close my eyes and start counting" is really "looks like our debts are counting"

    "and here's to all my regrets" is really "here's to a life i regret"

    "thought maybe im drowning" MIGHT BE "im breaking, but drowning

    the end is not "the mirror does not lie" it's "the mirror CANT SEE a lie"

    im not sure about the southbound part. i really dont know why senses fail didnt release the lyrics themselves

    General Commentum..i've been listening to this song non stop and i think
    "i took the arm" should be "I took the oath"
    it seems to make more sense
    and hayato it is "The mirror can't see a lie"

    General Commentdude, no... it's "not wading, but drowning, close my eyes and start counting"

    "i never said that i was heaven sent"

    "and it is "the mirror DOESN'T lie."

    General CommentI guess the first clue that you wouldn't know the actual lyrics was when you couldn't even spell the name of the song right. These are nowhere even close to being right.

    And this just in
    We're killing ourselves slowly
    And we're out to sea
    With cloudy skies

    We'll never know
    The man behind the curtain
    And so thank you and good night

    We're going down, at least we look good
    Roll out the red carpet,
    Cause I will not repent
    We're going down, at least we look good
    Thought maybe I'm drowning
    Close my eyes and start counting

    I feel so cold
    Slowly my lungs are filling
    Maybe there's still or maybe I'll choke
    I took the arm
    I prayed for God to save me
    But he left me here alone

    We're going down, at least we look good
    Roll out the red carpet
    Cause I will not repent
    We're going down, at least we look good
    Thought maybe I'm drowning
    Close my eyes and start counting

    Southbound and ready to pay for my sins
    My eyes have seen the glory of
    The coming of the Lord
    I kneel down at the gates where I was born
    And here's to all my regrets
    And all my good intentions
    I never saw that I was heaven sent
    And here's to a life I regret
    Will I be ending this?

    There's no time to get away
    There's no place left to run
    There's no time to get away
    There's no place left for us to run

    We're going down, at least we look good
    Roll out the red carpet
    I'm not going to repent
    We're going down, at least we look good
    Thought maybe I'm drowning
    Close my eyes and start counting

    We've got blood on our hands
    We've got blood on our hands
    We're going down as I spit at the sky
    The mirror does not lie
