@ALBUM: broken Transcribed from the album by Hugh Johnson (johnsh@rpi.edu). ========================= Nine Inch Nails -- Broken ========================= @SONG: wish 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 @SONG: last gave up trying to figure out my head got lost along the way worn out from giving it up my soul i pissed it all away still stings these shattered nerves pigs we get what pigs deserve i'm going all the way down i'm leaving today come come come on you've gotta fill me up come come gotta let me inside of you come come come on you're gotta fix me up come come gotta let me inside of you still feel it all slipping away but it doesn't matter anymore everybody's still chipping away but it doesn't matter anymore look through these blackened eyes you'll see ten thousand lies my lips may promise but my heart is a whore come come come on you've gotta fill me up come come gotta let me inside of you come come come on you're gotta fix me up come come gotta let me get through to you this isn't meant to last this is for right now i know it's all getting away it comes to me as no surprise i know what's coming to me is never going to arrive fresh blood through tired skin new sweat to drown me in dress up this rotten carcass just to make it look alive come come come on you've gotta fill me up come come gotta let me inside of you come come come on you're gotta fix me up come come gotta let me get through to you this isn't meant to last this is for right now i wish i could put the blame on you i want you to make me i want you to take me i want you to break me then i want you to throw me away @SONG: happiness is slavery slave screams he thinks he knows what he wants slave screams thinks he has something to say slave screams he hears but doesn't want to listen slave screams he's being beat into submission don't open your eyes you won't like what you see the devils of truth steal the souls of the free don't open your eyes take it from me i have found you can find happiness is slavery slave screams he spends his life learning conformity slave screams he claims he has his own identity slave screams he's going to cause the system to fall slave screams but he's glad to be chained to that wall don't open your eyes you won't like what you see the blind have been blessed with security don't open your eyes take it from me i have found you can find happiness is slavery i don't know what i am i don't know where i've been human junk just words and so much skin stick my hands thru the cage of this endless routine just some flesh caught in this big broken machine @SONG: gave up perfect little dream the kind that hurts the most forgot how it feels well almost no one to blame always the same open my eyes wake up in flames it took you to make me realize it took you to make me realize it took you to make me realize it took you to make me see the light smashed up my sanity smashed up my integrity smashed up what i believed in smashed up what's left of me smashed up my everything smashed up all that was true gonna smash myself to pieces i don't know what else to do covered in hope and vaseline still cannot fix this broken machine watching the hole it used to be mine just watching it burn in my steady systematic decline of the trust i will betray give it to me i throw it away after everything i've done i hate myself for what i've become i tried i gave up throw it away @SONG: Physical (You're So) I wanna take you baby I wanna take you out I wanna wine and dine you Oh I wanna twist and twist and shout I want you hot in my arms So soft on my bed You get the key to my heart Oh when you wear that sweet dress But you're too physical physical to me You're just too physical physical no to me I want your rough house baby I want this right in your ear You let me feel your danger I let you make this feeling clear here I want the touch of your charms The heat of your breath I wanna say all those things That would be better unsaid No But you're too physical physical to me You're just too physical oh You're too physical for me You're too physical to me You're really jus- just too- just Too really fuck no You're just too physical [x2] Too fucking physical No [x7] Oh you're too physical Just too physical Just too @SONG: Suck There is no god up in the sky tonight No sign of heaven anywhere in sight All that was true is left behind Once I could see now I am blind Don't want your dreams you try to sell This disease I give to myself How does it feel? [x2] She makes it sweeter than the sun I get too tight I come undone I bow my head to confess The temple walls are made of flesh Runs up my arms 'til I'm on track Itches my skin right off of my back I'll heal your wounds I'll set you free I'm Jesus Christ on Ecstacy How does it feel? [x2] I am so dirty on on the inside [x4] How does it feel? [x2] Suck [x4] A thousand lips a thousand tongues A thousand throats a thousand lungs A thousand ways to make it true I want to do terrible things to you
