Down! (Live in an Oakland Kitchen) (click for MP3 file)

Pollyannas try to give you hope:
Telling lies, till you untie the rope.
When the weight upon your chest,
Pushes you beyond depressed,
And you’re feeling like you could throw in the towel:
Let it drag you down.

DOWN!

They will tell you, “Life always improves.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
As you pace inside your hole,
And it deepens and it grows,
You can fashion your despair into a crown:
Let it drag you down.

DOWN!

You can beat the odds, but not for long:
In the end, the house is far too strong.
Now I’m gonna make it plain:
You will never beat this pain,
Though you may not be aware it’s still around,
Until it drags you down.
