    I don't know just where I'm going
    But I'm goin' to try for the kingdom if I can
    'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man
    When I put a spike into my vein
    Then I tell you things aren't quite the same

    When I'm rushing on my run
    And I feel just like Jesus' son
    And I guess I just don't know
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I have made big decision
    I'm goin' to try to nullify my life
    'Cause when the blood begins to flow
    When it shoots up the dropper's neck
    When I'm closing in on death

    You can't help me not you guys
    All you sweet girls with all your sweet talk
    You can all go take a walk
    And I guess I just don't know
    And I guess I just don't know

    I wish that I was born a thousand years ago
    I wish that I'd sailed the darkened seas
    On a great big clipper ship
    Going from this land here to that
    I put on a sailor's suit and cap

    Away from the big city
    Where a man cannot be free
    Of all the evils in this town
    And of himself and those around
    Oh, and I guess I just don't know
    Oh, and I guess I just don't know

    Heroin, be the death of me
    Heroin, it's my wife and it's my life
    Because a mainer to my vein
    Leads to a center in my head
    And then I'm better off than dead

    When the smack begins to flow
    Then I really don't care anymore
    About all the Jim-Jims in this town
    And all of the politicians makin' crazy sounds
    And everybody putting everybody else down and
    all the dead bodies piled up in mounds

    Wow, that heroin is in my blood
    And the blood is in my head
    Yeah, thank God that I'm good as dead
    Ooohhh, thank your God that I'm not aware
    And thank God that I just don't care
    And I guess I just don't know
    And I guess I just don't know
