  • I don't know just where I'm going
    But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can
    'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
    When I put a spike into my vein
    And I tell you things aren't quite the same

    When I'm rushing on my run
    And I feel just like Jesus' son
    And I guess that I just don't know
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I have made the big decision
    I'm gonna try to nullify my life
    'Cause when the blood begins to flow
    When it shoots up the dropper's neck
    When I'm closing in on death

    You can't help me now, you guys
    And all you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
    You can all go take a walk
    And I guess I just don't know
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
    I wish that I'd sailed the darkened seas
    On a great big clipper ship
    Going from this land here to that
    In a sailor's suit and cap

    Away from the big city
    Where a man cannot be free
    Of all the evils of this town
    And of himself and those around
    Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
    Oh, and I guess that I just don't know

    Heroin, be the death of me
    Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
    Because a mainline in my vein leads
    To a center in my head
    And then I'm better off than dead
    Because when the smack begins to flow
    I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jims in this town
    And all the politicians making crazy sounds
    And everybody putting everybody else down
    And all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

    'Cause when the smack begins to flow
    And I really don't care anymore
    Ah, when that heroin is in my blood
    And the blood is in my head
    Then I thank God that I'm as good as dead
    And thank your God that I'm not aware
    And thank God that I just don't care
    And I guess that I just don't know
    Oh, and I guess that I just don't know
