Lyrics
There's a fork in the road, but you never take it
Always go the same way home
It's 6 o'clock so you're medicated
Easy when you're living alone
And all the girls who come and go
They whisper in your ear "oh baby you know"
"Oh baby you know"

This town's got a crooked grin
You know it's got a cold, cold heart
Came here thinking it was yours to win
But you're dead before you even start
And all the friends who understood you
Smile and shake your hand saying "really we should"
"Really we should"

And you dream, dream of better days
And it seems they're moving far away
But you can't ever stop
You keep climbing for the top
Till the wind comes and blows you away
You're gonna watch yourself go down
You're gonna watch yourself go down
You're gonna watch yourself go down
Down, down, down

When you were a kid the world was waiting
You were everybody's favourite son
But now you wake up in a room where the light is fading
I think you're finally catching on
And all the days they fly just like
People in your life who're passing you by
Passing you by

And you dream, dream of better days
And it seems they're moving far away
But you can't ever stop
You keep climbing for the top
Till the wind comes and blows you away
You're gonna watch yourself go down
You're gonna watch yourself go down
You're gonna watch yourself go down
Down, down, down
