Well, I was born inside a fire
On the coattails of desire
I was orphaned in the flood
I was taken for a ride
My teams came crashing to the ground
I was defeated by the sound
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down

I was denied and I was sold
I was kept out in the cold
Well, there was never any doubt
That I believed what I was told
But all the time that I was looking
There was nothing to be found
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down

I never knew a single friend
Who didn't crumble in the end
I didn't bargain for control
I didn't break up in bed
With every weapon that they found
They tried to send me to the ground
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down

Well, I was invincible and weird
I was ignored and I was feared
I stood all that I could stand
'Til their faces disappeared
I was only half alive
There was no one else around
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down

I never cracked a smile
'Til my circus all left town
Even when I swam to glory
I was sure to drown
Praying hard for my breakdown
Praying hard for my breakdown
Praying hard for my breakdown
Praying hard for my breakdown

Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now
Look at me now

Well, I was incurable and vain
A lunatic out in the rain
I was beautiful and unctuous
I was shackled to the chain
And I would scream 'til they agreed
That only half the world was round
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down
They go down
They go down
They go down, down, down

Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down, down

Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down, down, down

They go down
They go down
They go down
