Lyrics

I hear thumpin' on my ceiling
thumpin' on my floor
thumpin' on my walls
but I hear no thumpin' on my door
when I do, it's some collector
coming round to keep the score
to take the things I have to give
until I can't give anymore

and I'm down
another high just gettin' low
another day just blown away
where did the damn thing go
I don't get like this often
but I'm getting like it now
and I'm wondering if the getting up
is worth the going down

I see people all around me
people on the street
people thrown together
who will never even meet
every day, it's just the same old
either beat it or get beat
thumping til they're senseless
trying to find the time to sleep

and I'm down
another high just gettin' low
another day just blown away
where did the damn thing go
I don't get like this often
but I'm getting like it now
and I'm wondering if the getting up
is worth the going down

Sometimes
the day is hanging heavy on my mind
Sometimes
I feel the need to ditch this daily grind
and get a little ripped up
and I'm down
another high just gettin' low
another day just blown away
where did the damn thing go
I don't get like this often
but I'm getting like it now
and I'm wondering if the getting up
is worth the going down

Sometimes
when all I am is weary in my bones
Sometimes - I need a place
where I can lick my wounds
like a little whipped pup

I'm down
another high just gettin' low
another day just blown away
where did the damn thing go
I don't get like this often
but I'm getting like it now
and I'm wondering if the getting up
is worth the going down
