• Holy water clouds my thinking
    Sinking low now keep on drinking
    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    You control me
    Soul you stole mine wishful thinking
    Six feet under
    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    So feel what were my eyes
    Sink into the holes in my eyes
    My sins have made me blind
    Sink into the holes in my eyes

    Dead by dreaming
    sleep you steal mine
    Pools of cold sweat
    hatred burns me
    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    Down you go, suffer long
    Down you go, sin make me strong

    Still shackled to the shadow
    Still shackled to the shadow
    That followed you

    Still shackled to the shadow
    Still shackled to the shadow
    That followed

    Still shackled to the shadow
    Still shackled to the shadow
    That followed you
    That followed you Writer/s: DEAN DELEO, ROBERT EMILE DELEO, ERIC KRETZ, SCOTT RICHARD WEILAND

  • Devalle from Houston, TxI honestly believe he's talking about drinking Gin or Vodka, which both are sometimes refer to as Holy Water or Sin. At least that's what we called it back in the late 90's. The more you drink the stronger you feel.
  • Spog Zallagi from Blue Hill, MeThis song is really dark and scary to me. I always play this song when I think of George Bush (Insane manic cackling. Sound of sniper rifle cocking) "Sink into the wholes in my eyes" Very disturbing. It's a perfect song for a horror movie. When ever I play this song I alway ALWAYS reminded of people that have caused me pain. And it is soothing when bad memories come up. This and Boston's "Don't Look Back" sooth me. If I sound screwed up I'm not. Really...who likes cheese!
  • Cel from Philadelphia, PaMy fave STP song!! I love the repeat "Down you go, suffer long. Down you go, sin make me strong."
