  • Last night I went to Hell
    The tenement, it smelled
    Of the stench of death
    The shooting gallerie's breath
    I saw women and men
    Kill themselves again and again
    They make their own disease
    And the end they will not see

    Yesterday I had a girl
    To me, she meant all the world
    Until the needle filled her arm
    Now she fills me with alarm
    Tombstone graves fill her eyes
    She looks at me with mad despise
    I pitty her destiny
    Now she's only hating me

    They say that they don't care at all
    The world is fucking sad
    On that point I agree with them
    But nothing is that bad

    Poison disease, eating through their minds
    They will never see the end of the line
    I will never understand why they do it to themselves
    Why they choose a life that so resembles Hell

    Now I stand in pouring rain
    At a friend's funeral again
    Tears fill my eyes
    He lived a tortured life
    And as I walk away
    I see another stray
    Stumbling down the street
    It seems so sad to me

    [Repeat chorus]
