Original video
Paint me a picture
And hang it on the wall
Colour it darkly
The lines must start to crawl

Down, down, down
Spin me around and around
Draw me away to the night from the day
Leave not a trace to be found
Down, down

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
And I feel like going
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down

Paint me a picture
Of eyes that never see
With flashes of lightning
That burn for only me

Hey, hey, hey
There's only the devil to pay
I'm ready to go, pull me down from below
Give me a place I can lay
Hey, hey

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
I feel like going
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
And I feel like going
Down, down, down

Nothing is real
But the way that I feel
And I feel like going
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down, down
