going down to die lyrics – danzig

and i know that it’s true
all the fire has burned through
well, you know i’ve played so hard

and the light grows so dim
and my time’s getting slim
all the words just don’t mean much

and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die

in my heart there’s a wind
and it swirls up a din
it’s so loud it drowns my mind

till the coin that i p*ss
to the ferryman’s grasp
lets me leave my pain behind

and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die
and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die

so i part and i’m oh so cold
and i hope to release my heart
better leave while my song still calls
it’s the truth that i’m going to die

and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die
and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die

and i know, saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die
and i know i’m saying goodbye
and i know that i’m going down to die
