​Goin' Downtown

This song is by The Lords of the New Church and appears on the album Is Nothing Sacred? (1983).

Ever feel something just ain't right?
You're all alone without a soul in sight
Don't need a phone when you're on your own
You got no place you call your home
Now's the time they cover up my past
It couldn't last it's flashing much too fast
Well now I'm going but I don't know where
Can't pay the fare no need to care
I'm going downtown, I'm going downtown
I'm going downtown, I'm going downtown
I'm wondering why I can't see no light
They're wondering now can I last the night
Hey, who are these people dressed in white?
I'm feeling scared I feel so confused
I'm wondering why they're taking off my shoes
They gotta tag you so your name is right
I realize something just ain't right
I'm going downtown, I'm going downtown
I'm going downtown, I'm going down downtown
Now I can see what's going down
And why my name is splattered all over town
When I call home but I'm never there
I'm on a slab in jigsaw square
I went downtown, I went downtown
I went downtown, I went down downtown
I went downtown
Hey!
Hey honey, have you heard the news?
Your blood-stained baby causing front page news
I bought a ticket on a one-way cruise
Well, can't you see I'm wearing dead man's shoes?
I'm going downtown
