lyrics

Down the drain I went
Riding the back
Of a dead fish
Named Romeo
Going through shit
Heading out to the great blue sea.

Down the drain
I met my unborn children
So much like me
Wrapped up in used paper
Robbed out of life by my own hands.

The ferryman asked for my mortal soul
Crossing the Styx only costs one coin
A small price to pay to gain access to the underworld.

Down the drain
The rats
Were my best friends
Squeaking comfort words
Baring their teeth, grinning
Glittering eyes and devil claws.

“Down the drain”,
They said,
“Under the surface
Must lie the truth-
Everything means nothing
Go with the flow towards nothing new”.

The ferryman asked for my mortal soul
Crossing the Styx only costs one coin
A small price to pay to gain access to the underworld.

The ferryman asked for my mortal soul…
