Nine Inch Nails – Down In It Lyrics


You pyonged “Nine Inch Nails – Down In It”

Save Note No Thanks
Caution: You are now annotating this song as

Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky
And I was feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe
Sometimes I can't believe them myself
And I decided I was never coming down

Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye
It was just about too small to see
But I watched it way too long
And that dot was pulling me down

I was up above it
Now I'm down in it

Well shut up so what
What does it matter now
I was swimming in the haze
Now I crawl on the ground
And everything I never liked about you
Is kind of seeping into me
Try to laugh about it now
But isn't it funny how everything works out
"I guess the joke's on me," she said


I used to be so big and strong
I used to know my right from wrong
I used to never be afraid
I used to be somebody
I used to have something inside
Now just this hole that's open wide
I used to want it all
I used to be somebody

I'll cross my heart and hope to die
But the needle's already in my eye

And all the world's weight is on my back
And I don't even know why
And what I used to think was me
Is just a fading memory
I looked him right in the eye
And said "goodbye"


Rain rain go away, come again some other day
Nah, nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah
