lyrics

There's a storm building up
The sky's as black as a bruise.
There's a crackle in the air
Like the flash from a fuse.

The atmosphere's so thick
You could cut it with a knife.
It'd only take a spark
To set the whole thing alight.

So come down, come down, come down, come down.
Lie down on the grass in the shade on the ground.
Come down, come down, come down.

We go chin to chin
And pound for pound.
We step into the ring
And we go fifteen rounds.

Now we're black and blue
And bloodied and battered.
We fought it out to the end
And none of it mattered.

So come down, come down, come down, come down.
Take a walk in the quiet evening streets of the town.
Come down, come down, come down.

Watch the sun sink into the sea
Till it boils.
Watch the colours swim
Like a rainbow on oil.

You built yourself a wall
Now it's grown far too high.
The world's caving in
Till it could bury you alive.

Everything is in spiral
And it's dragging you down,
Let me throw you a line
And turn you around.

So come down, come down, come down, come down.
Find the stillness at the centre, while everything else spins around.
Come down, come down, come down.

So come down, come down, come down, come down.
Lie down on the grass in the shade on the ground.

So come down, come down, come down, come down.
Find the stillness at the centre, let everything else keep spinning 'round.
Come down, come down, come down.
