The Down

Swamp TV

They took me down
To the Down

Where the river runs slow
and sour

Where reptile things,
Cold, slow and hidden,
Lurk in the thick of the mud

Where lost things go
To never be found

And they gave me an understanding

They could sink me down,
And whoever would miss me?

So I said what I said
To get out and away from there
And you know what I told them

I'm sorry, so sorry
That it had to be done

Now they're here for you
To take you to the Down
And it won't matter what I say
But I'll ask you anyway

When you're there
With all the lost and rotting things,

Would you say hello to my soul?
