303 : 2/7/99 : Get Down (II)

Don’t you know you get down on yourself
But it’s a hard road and all men falter
Some are early some are late
And none lead fate as with a halter
Don’t get down so low you cannot see the light
Don’t go beyond the point of sanity
You’re on a long road on a long road now
All the way around it goes humanity
Get down
get off
go hard
or go soft
Go on
get down there
Get on with it
here or nowhere
Down on the surface you’ll receive your orders
Get what you got coming to you grunt
Follow your orders the whole fucked up cavalcade
Is ready one last time to punt
Rise up and die
Speak to the sky
Ask heaven why
You gotta get down to get high
Or leave it be
And cease to roam
Leave it behind
And just go home
