This is the first day of my last days
I built it up now I take it apart climbed up real high now fall down
Real far
No need for me to stay the last thing left I just threw it away
I put my faith in god and my trust in you
Now there's nothing more fucked up I could do
Wish there was something real wish there was something true
Wish there was something real in this world full of you
I'm the one without a soul I'm the one with this big fucking hole
No new tale to tell twenty-six years on my way to hell
Gotta listen to your big time hard line bad luck fist fuck
Don't think you're having all the fun
You know me I hate everyone
Wish there was something real wish there was something true
Wish there was something real in this world full of you
I want to but I can't turn back
But I want to

    General Comment:Okay first of all anyone who has problems with people using drugs shouldn't be listening to Nine Inch Nails because you will never be able to identify with what Trent is saying most of the time. Secondly what the fuck is wrong with everyone. This is by far NIN's most rocking song. Anyone who's seen them live knows exactly what I mean.

    General Comment:I think it pretty much sums up what someone (Trent?) has been through. He got so far in life and it all fell apart.

    General Comment:hey man, I Don't Like The Drugs But The Drugs Like ME...
    i can't do anything about it... xD
    listen to the first dialog of the song Tool - Third eye
    you'll see...
    drugs have done a lot for us..
    and for music... religion.. arts...
    if drugs you don't like drugs... go back home.. take all your records, all your allbums and BURN them...

    General Comment:... i don't think that's what our lovely little 'ped-o-file' was actually talking about. it was just a cheap insult.
    everyone let us calm down now and someone pass me the fucking joint.
    (as for the song, i love it. total disgust)
