Alligatoah - Do you want to

Take the rose by the thorns.
Hope for sun, but here's the storm.
So head outside and wait for rain.
Watch it all go down the drain.
It can't be comfortable when the whole thing's about to fall.
"We're dying on the inside."

Are you ready? Yes!
Shaved? No!
I go down the drain, don't hesitate
Don't be fussy, work on your hairs
Beautiful brown beard, few hairs on the chin

Pieces were stolen from me
Or dare I say, given away
Watching the water give in
As I go down the drain
I appear missing now

Queens of the Stone Age - I Appear Missing

Don’t want to be left with the questions, why
Let’s be honest with ourselves
Did we really come this far
Just to watch it go down the drain?

Yeah, sometimes the heart what's invisible to the eye

Justin Bieber - Trust

Time's up, we gotta get this party started
Raise the roof and watch the walls come tumbling down
Supplying the gasoline cheaper than bottled water
Fill 'em up, we don't give a damn about tomorrow

Run, run, run - we're running out of water

Aqua - No Party Patrol

People think you're cool just 'cause you're on TV.
Now, I can fall in and out of love,
Have marriages that barely last a month.
When they go down the drain,
I'll blame it on the fame,
And say: "It's just so tough, bein' a celebrity."

Brad Paisley - Celebrity

I do not have the will to justify
If I fall l fall alone

When you let me go down the drain
God gave you those loyal women
Which are barking behind my back

To see this go down the drain
I have got so much to give

Mate steale, step aside of the ??

You be drowned in alcohol, you brush past jail
You go down the drain, you fall in love of your crazy
Today I'm laugh of it, yesterday I was criying for
The past fly away

Jul - I can't

So I was the sun
That slapped the rain
Until we all knew she'd go down the drain

They're the jacks of all trades

But who rival?
I don't know you're strange, I gonna fuck you
Give me a gun
If it's go down the drain in rap game bury me in Foumboumi*
Protect my mom if she's in pain, I ain't finish
People say that I do rap for children

Alonzo - Kill them

I had so many times try to do something in my life so as to get by fine
Opposites attract so it's shooting for nothing
For Versace or shit, so many dead persons
All go down the drain, I reassess myself
With myself I argue, area is stense
Time flows, they tell me be caution

Ghetto Phénomène - I wanted to

You can see the summit, but you can't reach it
It's the last piece of the puzzle, but you just can't make it fit
Doctor says you're cured, but you still feel the pain
Aspirations in the clouds, but your hopes go down the drain

And you want her (want her) and she wants you (wants you)

And rip in a moment
his writings and poems,
without any remorse
they go down the drain
his most noble feelings
that they believe they're trifles

But every man got a story to tell
My brother watched his life go down the drain
His addiction took control of him
Everytime I see my brother look at me
