"to go to the dogs" in lyrics

But only finds the same failure all the time
That seems to be what still connects the two of us
We were together, were seperated, haven't seen each other for years
Please come back, otherwise I have to go to the dogs

Come back to me

Fotos - Come back

But one thing I know after all these years
Even you have to know the truth
It was always worthwile to be a man
Although it is so easy to go to the dogs

Although I have empty pockets
