: The Road To Hell

Well Im standing by the river 
But the water doesnt flow 
It boils with every poison you can 
think of 
And Im underneath the streetlight 
But the light of joy I know 
Scared beyond belief way down in 
the shadows 

And the perverted fear of violence 
Chokes the smile on every face 
And common sense is ringing out 
the bell 
This aint no technological breakdown 
Oh no, this is the road to hell 

And all the roads jam up with credit 
And theres nothing you can do 
Its all just bits of paper flying 
away from you 
Oh look out world, take a good look 
what comes down here 
You must learn this lesson fast and 
learn it well 

This aint no upwardly mobile freeway 
Oh no, this is the road 
Said this is the road 
This is the road to hell
