Down in It (Shred)

length: 6:57
remixer: Adrian Sherwood and Keith LeBlanc

composer: Trent Reznor
lyricist: Trent Reznor
Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky.
And I was feeling some feelings you wouldn't believe.
Sometimes I don'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.
That dot was pulling me down.

[Chorus:]
I was up above it.
I was up above it.
I was up above it.
I was up above it.
Now I'm down in it
Shut up.

So what what does it matter now.
I was swimming in the hate now I crawl on the ground.
And everything I never liked about you is kind of seeping into me.
I try to laugh about it now but isn't it funny how everything works out.
I guess the jokes on me.

[Chorus]

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 it's open wide.
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."

[Chorus]

Rain rain go away.
Come again some other day.
Chorus
Na na na na na na na na.
