"Bring Me Down" as written by Jimmy Allen and Wesley Scantlin....
Make no promises to me
You're slowly melting
Wake up then fall back asleep
You're quickly fading
Hey man you'll have to wait your turn
I can see that you're jonesing
Taste no flavors on my tongue
They've evaporated

Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me
Bring me down

Karma comes around two times
So you better be good
Watch out for unfamiliar signs
When you're going the wrong way
Look back to the deuias minds
They keep pushing me pulling
Baby jesus never sleeps when you're being a sinner
And he'll eat you for dinner

Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down

What I hear about I don't want to think about (bring me down!)
What I think about I don't want to hear about (bring me down!)
What I hear about I don't want to think about (bring me down!)
What I think about I don't want to hear about (bring me down!)

Make no promises to me
You're slowly melting
Baby Jesus never sleeps when you're being a sinner
Hey man you'll have to wait your turn
I can see that you're jonesing
Taste no flavors on my tongue
They've evaporated
You've disintegrated

Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down
Why you gotta bring me down

What I hear about I don't want to think about (bring me down!)
What I think about I don't want to hear about (bring me down!)
What I hear about I don't want to think about (bring me down!)
What I think about I don't want to hear about (bring me down!)
What I hear about I don't want to think about (bring me down!)
What I think about I don't want to hear about (bring me down!)

So don't bring me down

    General CommentI think it also kicks ass, and their cd is full of these songs. On the other side, that's a minor. But I love it anyway. My favorites are 'She hates me', 'Said' and 'Bring me Down'. The acoustic version of control is bit of naggy, but it's kinda cool.

    General CommentThis is an excellent tune by a most underrated popular band. I would rather have a band rip off Nirvana and Alice In Chains than say Britney Spears or the Scissor Sisters. I really like the line "Baby Jesus never sleeps when you're being a sinner...yeah he'll eat you for dinner." I guess you don't need to be high on drugs or booze to write depressing prose. A boatload of emotional turmoil and 3-a-day Zoloft habit is all you need.
