    Stood still on a highway
    I saw a woman
    By the side of the road
    With a face that I knew like my own
    Reflected in my window
    Well she walked up to my quarterlight
    And she bent down real slow
    A fearful pressure paralysed me
    In my shadow

    She said "Son, what are you doing here?
    My fear for you has turned me in my grave"
    I said "Mama, I come to the valley of the rich
    Myself to sell"
    She said "Son, this is the road to Hell"

    On your journey 'cross the wilderness
    From the desert to the well
    You have strayed upon the motorway to Hell

    Well I'm standing by a river
    But the water doesn't flow
    It boils with every poison you can think of
    And I'm underneath the streetlights
    But the light of joy I know
    Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
    And the perverted fear of violence
    Chokes a smile on every face
    And common sense is ringing out the bells
    This ain't no technological breakdown
    Oh no, this is the road to Hell

    And all the roads jam up with credit
    And there's nothing you can do
    It's all just bits of paper
    Flying away from you
    Look out world take a good look
    What comes down here
    You must learn this lesson fast
    And learn it well
    This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
    Oh no, this is the road to Hell
