The Lyrics

It was a beautiful day, then I fell down
I had my walkman too loud, I was walkin'
In the sewer, 'cause the manhole's missin'
I can't find my way, in here it's dim

Yeah, runnin' down the drain
A lot of gunk around me
Gettin' out's a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down the drain

I felt so bad, fell in the waste, it was awful
I'll find a ladder, and wash my eyes
I heard a flush, the water's unstoppable
It was so stinky, no sunshine

Yeah, runnin' down the drain
A lot of gunk around me
Gettin' out's a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down the drain

Rolled away, as the water flushed
Where are the ladders now? Not a good time
There's some escape somewhere around here
I will get out, far from the pipeline

I'm runnin' down the drain
A lot of gunk around me
Gettin' out's a mystery, goin' wherever it leads
I'm runnin' down the drain
