Down Down Down
(cabin 712 demo)
Written by Danny Michel
Arranged by Rob Carli


Down Down Down we go
Into the belly here far below
Through the kitchen & down the hatch
Past the boilers & the grease traps

Down Down Down we go
Don’t dare call this ship a boat
I dance with the crew on a steel floor
I haven't a care in this world no more

Down Down Down some more
Out of the light & far from shore
The polar bear with his yellow hide
The cigarette-stained frozen skies

Down Down Down
That poor old world above
Running so low on love
Down Down Down
Sailing through it’s melting tears
The glacier disappears

Down Down Down we go
With a bread crumb trail of pistachios
No one will find you or hear you shout
Lose your way & you'll never get out

Down Down Down we go
Out of minds and in from the snow
Vladimir turns 58 today
We eat sardines & celebrate

Down Down Down some more
The anchors slice the ocean floor
Don’t get caught whistling a tune
Or it's up and overboard with you

Down Down Down again
One last time, goodbye my friends
With a sailor's grip and a polar tan
Vertigo dreams of the motherland
