I'm sick with the guilt
And I'm dipped in the anger
And sex is the one thing
That has brought me disease
I want to hurt people
Especially ones I know
I'm so fucking scared
I just wish I could go
But go to the store
Or the park or the mountains
I'll still be sick there
As the anger spews from me
Like fountains
Like fountains

I can break things
Things plastic
But things I'll remember
I broke
It's the gnawing
The clawing
The scraper inside
Wants to clean out
All that's inside
So there's only without

A numb hard shell
Is how they'll find me
Let me show you my best
I won't be that easy to find
I will fit in with the rest
I will fit in with the rest

The past is still with me
It follows not stopping
Slowing me down
To show me that nothing
Is left in my life
To say that I have changed

I'm still here obsessing
And thinking of nothing
Can't even be honest with myself
I don't want to fit in with the rest
I don't want to fit in with the rest

    General CommentI think this is Failure's first release. Bad-ass song with a cool fretless bass riff. Part of me wishes they would have stuck with this style of music for a couple more albums but then of course they would have never made that gradual transition to the "space rock" phase that everyone loved. The song is pretty self explanatory - hatred, depression, anger.

    General Commentwell not exactly, tool was also influenced by king crimson and progressive rock, and early tool wasnt influenced by failure simply because tool was around first, but then they went on tour together, and that was an influence on them.
