GOING DOWN

Unreleased Song

 

There was a child
And he was taken for king
He knew the answers to all of life, death and being
And then the crowds came
Because his words gave control
Back to the people
That made him dangerous, so
I am going down
This time it's all the way down
Even my friends have turned their backs on me now
Where is my father?
Have you forsaken me too?
They go this far to prove me false or true


"Father forgive them, for they know not what they do..."
"Jesu...Jesu..."


I am going down
This time it's all the way down
This time it's final
What will they do with me now?
I never knew what lengths they would go to
Iíll disappear and then all hell will break loose
I am going down
Come with me
Ah, come with me down, oh yeah
Everybody gather round
Gather round
I am going down
Come with me, come with me
I am going down


Where is my father?
The wheat that grows highest is always cut down
Come with me, come with me down
