lyrics

Downtown, deep down within myself
A small riot has gathered there
There’s Michael and few of his friends
They’re holding their last stand
Surrounded by soldiers
Cigarettes, guns in hands
Mike took off his hat
“Tried to warn you”, he said

Downtown, high above the ground

By the window a man stands still

A thick cigar spits death around

He’s closely watching the scene

Deadly calm, incoming storm,

“What should we do, sir?”, somebody asked
Mike lifts head up high
Looked him in the eye

Mike took of his hat

“Tried to warn you”, he said

I think you should know

We’re dying here trying to save your soul
Knowing this you too should think
Before you lean your head over the cliff

Downtown, deep underground

A small send off has gathered there

There’s Michael burying all his friends
Putting lilies on their graves

Silent cry, grievous goodbye

Now that you know, will you shed a tear?
Mike took off his hat, “You’re alive, I’m glad!” “
So remember!”

I think you should know

We’re dying here trying to save your soul
Knowing this you too should think
Before you lean your head over the cliff
