well it all came crashing to my face like needles to balloons.
well I always thought that you'd die young but I never thought this soon.
you're not dead yet but days away from your fateful end.
with just one more shot of heroin by tomorrow you'll be dead.

LIE DOWN!!

well it all came crashing through my face like fishhooks to my eyes.
well it don't seem right to give up the fight but it don't make sense to try,
'cause a girl like you can't bottle up and lock the pain inside.
I'm not a psychic or a prophet, it's common sense. it's right before your eyes.

if I...could say...one thing what would it be?
if I...could say...one thing, "come back to me."
if I...could say...one thing what would it be?
if I...could say...one thing, "come back to me."

so I sit here waiting for the day
when they break my heart with words they say,
'cause I prepare myself now, no surprise
when they tell me that you have died.
(the voice of a generation in trouble)
so we all embrace the face of disaster
and wrap our crap with masks of alabaster.
for us it just makes sense to die faster

if I...could say...one thing what would it be?
if I...could say...one thing, "come back to me."
if I...could say...one thing what would it be?
if I...could say...one thing, it'd be
LIE DOWN.
LIE DOWN.
LIE DOWN.
LIE DOWN.
LIE DOWN.
We watched you dig your grave now lie in it.

YOU LET US DOWN BY SHOOTING UP.
WE KNEW ONE DAY THAT YOU WOULD DROP.
YOU LET US DOWN BY SHOOTING UP.
WE KNEW ONE DAY THAT YOU WOULD DROP.
AND NOW WE ALL GET TO WATCH YOU DIE.
AND NOW WE ALL GET TO WATCH YOU DIE.
