The Road to Hell (Part Two)
Well I'm standing by the river
But the water doesn't flow
It boils with every poison
You can think of

And I'm underneath the streetlight
But the light of joy I know
Is 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 ain't no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the road to hell

And all the roads jam up with credit
And there's nothing you can do
It's all just bits of paper
Flying away from you

Oh look out world, take a good look
What goes down here
You must learn this lesson fast
And learn it well

This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
Oh no, this is the road
Said this is the road
This is the road to hell
