Well I know love
What it means to me
The love that I've seen
How lost is me
Ain't nothing but pain, sorrow and blame
Obsession, possession, addiction's the same

I'm down on the floor
My back's to the wall
Blood on my face
Blood is the score
That bitch in the corner
The witch down the hall
Sanity walking out the in door

Swing low, Swing to and fro
Ain't no going back home
Swing low, Swing to and fro
There's no going back home

Well I'm up to my neck
In shit and in death
I hang my head
In shame from the neck
I take the blame
And the blood and the rain
I live by the needle
And die in vain

All you mothers
All you fathers
Keep in mind your sons and your daughters
Who carry within all the sins you don't mend
The demons you're holding, you'll pass onto them

Swing low, Swing to and fro
Ain't no going back home
Swing low, Swing to and fro
There's no going back home

All my friends stuck around
I love you all, you make me proud
You keep me clear
You're keeping me sound
If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be 'round
I hope at least you learn from me
Mistakes that I made
There are so many

Swing low, Swing to and fro
Ain't no going back home
Swing low, Swing to and fro
There's no going back home

To you my brother
My blood and my colour
To you, I've done wrong
You told me I said it wouldn't happen again
I gave you my word it wouldn't be like it was
Here I stand
My head in my hands
Guess I'm his back in the walls

All you mothers
All you fathers
Keep in mind your sons and your daughters
Who carry within all the sins you don't mend
The demons you're holding, you'll pass onto them

Swing low, Swing to and fro
Ain't no going back home
Swing low, Swing to and fro
Ain't no going back home
Swing low
Swing low
There ain't no going back home
