Nowhere To Go But Down

from by Chris Shepard



Your huddled masses a boiling frog
A massive walking coma for the sirens' song
The steam is rising and it won't be long

Because there's nowhere to go but down...

Proud and myopic
Half out of their minds
Facing the gallows dressed to the nines
There's no time to repent when you've
Seen the Seventh Sign
'Cause there's nowhere to go but down...

When the water starts rising
And the stars start coming down
When the seas turn black
And the blood flows from the ground
Just look up to the skies
You'll see the old gods coming around

And there's nowhere to go but down...
