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,
so thank you,
and good night.

And 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.
Not waving, but drowning.
Close my eyes and start counting

I 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.

And 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.
Not waving, but drowning
Close my eyes and start counting.

So pal, are 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
(See the glory of)
In all my good intentions
(the coming of the lord)
I never said that I was
heaven sent.

Here's to a life I regret
(the glory of)(the glory of)
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!

And we're going down,
at least we look good.
Roll out the red carpet
I'm not going to repent.

And we're going down,
at least we look good.
Not waving, but 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, come
say we lie.
