I am the crisis
I am the bitter end
I'm gonna gun this down
I am divided
I am the razor edge
there is no easy now

son of sorrow
staring down forever
with an aching view
disenchanted
lets go down together
with the fatal wound

this is the real thing
no rubber bullets now
this is the final bow
my breath avoids me
my chest is in my head
my stomach's upside down
down

son of sorrow
staring down forever
with an aching view
disenchanted
lets go down together
with the fatal wound
with the fatal wound
with the fatal wound

    General Comment"my chest is in my head" gives me the image of his head hanging down and touching his chest (on the cross).

    "lets go down together" also gives me the image of him telling the thieves on both sides of him (who symbolize humankind - the ones who reject him, like the one thief, and the ones who accept him, like the other)... he tells them, "lets go down together", which could be seen as, "i go down with you in your fallenness, i'll pay for it", or "i feel your pain, son".
