When the darkness surrounds you
And the light is all but out
There's still a fire deep inside you
That will find the nearest route

It starts as a whisper
You feel a rumbling, an itching at your soul
You can't hold it any longer
As the urge keeps growing stronger
And then you know

You gotta go when you gotta go
Close your eyes, give it a shove
Go! You gotta go
It's time to let go of your love

The time we had together
Was all that I had left
Go, go, go!
'Til you can't go anymore

Wait, I might just make it
I found my second wind
The pain's not bad I can take it
I think I can hold it in

Help me to my feet
You will have to carry me
No! Put me down
My limbs are growing weak
Is this the end I see?

Oops, I guess there's more
I saw a porcelain door
But there's one last thing to say
So come real close

You gotta go when you gotta go
It's time to get the hell out of here
Go! Get, get, get go!
I don't want a single tear

I'll always be inside you
Even when I'm all dried up
Go, go, go!
'Til you can't... anymore...
