As We Go Up We Go Down
Guided by Voices Lyrics


I can't terrorize I see terror in your eyes
As we go up, we go down
I can't socialize I'll be institutionalized
As we go up, we go down

And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh
And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh

I speak in monotone: "Leave my fucking life alone"
As we go up we go down
As we go up we go down (And see the truth yeah)
As we go up we go down (Is just a lie)
As we go up we go down (And see the truth yeah)
As we go up we go down (Is just a lie)
As we go up we go down (And see the truth yeah)
As we go up we go down (Is just a lie)
As we go up we go down (And see the truth yeah)

I can't terrorize, I see terror in your eyes
As we go up, we go down
I can't socialize, I'll be institutionalized
As we go up, we go down

And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh
And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh

I speak in monotone, "Leave my fuckin' life alone"
As we go up, we go down

As we go up, we go down
(And see the truth, yeah)

"Pollard mastered the 90-second pop song, distilling what other songwriters would need four-to-six minutes to achieve into its most pure, crystalline form. Thus, a track like "As We Go Up, We Go Down" never seemed truncated or short-lived at a buck thirty six. Rather, it progressed fully through its beginning, middle and end, even leaving enough room for a fading coda." - Pitchfork

maximus bugati

I can't terrorize, I see terror in your eyes
As we go up, we go down
I can't socialize, I'll be institutionalized
As we go up, we go down

And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh
And see the truth, yeah, is just a lie, oh

I speak in monotone, "Leave my fuckin' life alone"
As we go up, we go down

As we go up, we go down
(And see the truth, yeah)
