On the way, on the way down
On the way I got paid for the music that I played
On the way down, on the way down
On the way down, on the way down
On the way down, on the way

If you want, you can take some more
If you want, take some more
'Cause my Mother owns the store
On the way down, on the way down
On the way down, on the way down
On the way down, on the way

By surprise I got paid so much more
By the one who told me lies
On the way down, on the way down
I was laid down on the way down
On the way down, on the way

Well, you wear your button and you wave your sign
And just because you clapped for more
I thought your ideas were like mine
You let me down on the way down
I was laid down on the way down
On the way down, on the way

On the way down, on the way down
On the way I got saved
By the music that I played
On the way down, on the way down
On the way down I was laid down
On the way down, on the way.
