Going Nowhere - Nomeansno

He pushed her in the alley, and he tried to lay her low
He grabbed her in the dark, this story must be told
She looked him in the eye and his blood ran cold
She said, I know a little story, and this story must be told."
But it's lies, lies, we never heard about it
Lies, lies, and we don't want to know
Lies, lies, we'll never listen
You're a dirty little liar and we don't want to know
His guts were in a knot but her voice it would not stop
She shattered with her chatter all his dreams and all his thoughts
She licked him with her tongue and she tore him with her claws
He beat her and he begged her but he could not make her stop
Nine times she bellyed over him, nine times in the foam she rose
She ripped away his soul like he ripped away her clothes
She said, I know a little story and this story must be told."

He tried to hide, he wandered down the road
He threw away everything that he owned, still he could not bear the load
He grabbed me when I met him and my blood it ran cold
He said, "I know a little story, and this story must be told."
But it's lies, lies, we never heard about it
Lies, lies, and we don't wannt to know
Lies, lies, we'll never listen
You're a dirty little liar and we don't want to know
He rolled his eyes, he laughed and he cried, he said I'd kill myself if I was still alive
He reamed me out with a tongue like sand, cursing in a language that nobody understands
"There she blows!" he turned and he cried, pointing to the centre of an empty sky
There she is, my Lady true! Her laughter cuts my heart in two!
Her eyes are blank, her face is stone! Leave me alone! Leave me alone!
She shattered with her chatter all my dreams and all my thoughts
She licked me with her tongue and she tore me with her claws
She ripped away my soul like I ripped away her clothes
She said, I know a little story and this story must be told.

In the light I see, nothing left of me, when the dankness falls, I will see it all



Hey, buddy, you know me, I guess you've heard my name

I was the greatest, I had my share of fame
The girls, they loved me, you know I had them all
But now, they don't love me, now they don't care at all

I thought I could not fail
I had it by the tail
I thought I owned this town
But now I'm headed down, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

I was the strongest, I pushed the world around
I stood the tallest, I turned it upside down
I thought I had it, I thought I knew it all
Why couldn't I see it, the writing on the wall
I wanted everything
I had it on a string
I soared above the ground
But now I'm coming down, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all

Hey buddy, you've seen me, you know my face and name
Hey, buddy, listen to me, don't turn and walk away
I thought I had it made
I thought I'd never fade
I thought I'd live forever
I guess I should've know better, I'm
Standing by the roadside
Up against a wall
Now I'm going nowhere
Nowhere at all
