"Going Down" as written by and Adam/perry Perry....
Suck it up, we're going down
30 seconds 'till we smash into the ground
The passengers have lost their smiles
Soon their bodies will be wreckage spread for miles

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I think that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

Another day, another flight
There's not a chance of going down, but I just might
So this is it, this is goodbye
And I feel like I'm gonna lose my mind

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I think that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

Everybody has their day and I guess I'm just the same
But I'm going nowhere
Everybody has their day, never thought it would be this way
And I really don't care

I'm in the shit, knee-deep in it, I think that this might hurt a bit
I leave my debts but no regrets - except I wish I'd took the train

We're going down, we're out of sky
It sure helps if you can see the funny side
So this is over and out, this is goodbye
And I'm feeling like I'm gonna lose my mind

I try to reach her, but she's not there
But back home I hope she knows how much I care
I ease the seat back and start to pray
To the same God that puts bombs in cargo bays

    General CommentI was amazed by the content of this when i first read the lyric book for 'Hi-fi serious', basically it's what it will be like if people knew that they were going to die and the could do f*ck all about it. 'I try to reach her, but she's not there, but back home i hope she knows how much i care' Makes ya think dont it!

    General CommentBrain_case's spot on. It's a chilling little number; but great at the same time.

    General CommentI enjoy putting this one on when I'm on a plane in the midst of taking off. Seriously. No, I don't suffer from flying-relating anxiety. Also, I think this is a beautifully written song, emblematic of A's rather unique abilities.
