"Goin' Down" as written by Adam Wade Gontier, Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst and Barry Stock....
Took me down to the river
So I could drown, drown, drown
Looking up through the water
I kept sinking down, down, down

I feel like I'm dying
I've got one foot in the ground
Never knew what love was
Until you came around

You're goin' down
You're goin' down, down
You walk all over me
You never thought I'd be
The one who's laughing now
Now that you're goin' down

Take it down to the basement
You look around, 'round, 'round
And we sit there in silence
I watch you go down, down, down

I feel like I'm flying
I've got my head in the clouds
Never though I was crazy
Until you came around

You're goin' down
You're goin' down, down
You walk all over me
You never thought I'd be
The one who's laughing now
Now that you're goin' down

You're goin' down down
You walk all over me
You never thought I'd be
The one who's laughing now
Now that you're going down

Took me down to the river
So I could drown, drown, drown

You're goin' down
You're goin' down, down
You walk all over me
You never thought I'd be
The one who's laughing now
Now that you're goin' down

(Down, down, down)

You're going down, down
You walk all over me
You never thought I'd be
The one who's laughing now
Now that you're going down

    General CommentCould be about revenge, could be about a relationship just as easily. Dysfunctional one of course. They fucked you over, so now you want to return the favor.

    does it sound a little suspicious or dirty to anyone else or is it just me...?
