Track Name: Take Me Down
Baby I've been like this ever since I killed that man
down in old town Chehalis I'm wanted for my hands
in dealing out some justice and getting my revenge
Here I am, come and take me down
Here I am, come and take me down

Well I warned you once that I ain't nice
and I feel so good I could kill him twice
because I'm free of his hold on my heart
and now I know what freedom is and what I have to loose
So, Here I am, come and take me down

When I am down I get strong like a fever
and when I am down the devil gives me his power
When I am down well the angel's my receiver
When I am down, lord, when I am down

The wind blows upon my face
through the dark sky and willow leaves
it's gonna be a thundrin' in the sky
and the trains coming around the bend
I'm a running, gonna jump on it
and you won't catch me until I die

Because I am lighted
and lord I'm not frightened
That the man wants to be righted
and take me down
because I am a river
and I flow into the ocean
Lord I lost my devotion
and it don't bring me down

When I am down I get strong like a fever
and when I am down the devil gives me his power
When I am down well the angel's my receiver
When I am down, lord, when I am down

Baby I've been like this ever since you shot my heart
down in old town Chehalis, I wasn't yours from the start
There's city lights and river nights where I am bound
So here I am, come and take me down.
