Backyard Babies Painkiller Lyrics

Last updated:

I see your phone's been cut off again
did you shoot all your troubles
up the vein
someone saw you
said you were deadly pale
another night in hell
another night in jail

looks like the chinaman's reelin' you in
looks like the horse is gonna win
looks like the monkeys
are holding on tight
say hello to darkness
goodbye light
painkiller

and as obscurity beckons the call
it seems oblivion
is the only thing to cushion your fall
I believe that everything
is gonna be too late
it all sinks along
with the ship you chose to hate

looks like the chinaman's reelin' you in
looks like the horse is gonna win
looks like the monkeys
are holding on tight
say hello to darkness
goodbye light
painkiller

now you sold all your possessions
and not only your own
there's miles to go yet
but you're at the end of your road
so you finally surrended
to the endless sleep
Found dead next mornin'
with your life at your feet

looks like the chinaman's reelin' you in
looks like the horse is gonna win
looks like the monkeys
are holding on tight
say hello to darkness

looks like the chinaman's reelin' you in
looks like the horse is gonna win
looks like the monkeys
are holding on tight
say hello to darkness
goodbye light
painkiller


sail into the darkness goodbye light
say hello to darkness
goodbye light
say hello
goodbye
