"To the Bone" as written by and Steven John Wilson Andy Partridge....
Once we've made sense of our world
We wanna go fuck up everybody else's
Because his or her truth doesn't match mine
But this is the problem
Truth is individual calculation
Which means because we all have different perspectives
There isn't one singular truth, is there?

Hold on
Down deeper
Down we're going
Way down through the floor

Ho-oh
Don't you wanna see what's at the core?

Truth is the icy clear stream we dream about
Drinking from
But if the liquid [?]
It's my [?]

Hold on
Down and down and down and down
We're melting down this road
Ho-oh
Down through every superstition
Purging all the [?]
Hold on
Down through all the fear
Back to the very truth alone
Hold on
Down and down we're going to the bone

Truth is the prevalent past we laugh about
Within a void
Thinkin' we all know the way we strayed behind
Self-destroyed

Hold on
Down and down and down and down
We're driven through the smoke
Ho-oh
Down through every fairy story
Built to keep us broke
Hold on
Down through every government
With gun and gun in droves [?]
Hold on
Down and down we're going to the bone

Rain all the truth down
Down on me
Raining so much
You make us see
You make us see

See if we can sail
Sink like a stone
Down to the truth
Down to the bone
Down to the bone

    General CommentVery inaccurate lyrics but to be fair, the lyrics are very hard to hear correctly. Here are the lyrics straight from the To the Bone Deluxe Edition book.

    Hold on, down and deeper down we're going
    Way down through the floor
    Oh, don't you wanna see what's at the core?

    Truth is the icy clear stream we dream about drinking from
    But it will liquidate liars should they rewire its smiling bomb

    Hold on, down and down and down and down we're melting
    down their throne
    Oh, down through every superstition, virgin, whore and crone
    Hold on, down through all the fear gods to the very truth alone
    Oh, down and down we're going to the bone

    Truth is the permanent path we laugh about, but then avoid
    Thinking we all know the way, we stray behind, self destroyed

    Hold on, down and down and down and down, we're drilling
    through their stone
    Oh, down through every fairy story built to keep us prone
    Hold on, down through every government with gun and
    guided drone
    Oh, down and down we're going to the bone

    Rain on me, rain on me, to me, to me, to me

    Rain all the truth down, down on me
    Rain down so much you make a sea, you make a sea
    A sea we can sail then sink like a stone
    Down to the truth, down to the bone, down to the bone
