Chris Rea – The Road To Hell

Chris Rea – The Road To Hell lyrics

Well I’m standing by a river
But the water doesn’t flow
It boils with every poison
You can think of

And I’m underneath the streetlight
But the light of joy I know
Scared beyond belief
Way down in the shadows

And the perverted fear of violence
Chokes the smile on every face
And common sense is ringing out the bell

This ain’t no technological breakdown
Oh no, this is the road to Hell

And all the roads jam up with credit
And there’s nothing you can do
It’s all just bits of paper
Flying away from you

Oh look out world
Take a good look
What comes down here
You must learn this lesson fast
And learn it well

This ain’t no upwardly mobile freeway
Oh no, this is the road, said this is the road
This is the road to Hell
