The Wretched Lyrics

by Nine Inch Nails

Just a reflection, just a glimpse
Just a little reminder of all the what abouts
And all the might have
Could have beens, another day, some other way
But not another reason to continue
And now you're one of us, the wretched

The hopes and prays
The better days
The far aways, forget it

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to, did it?
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to, did it?

Now you know
This is what it feels like
Now you know
This is what it feels like

The clouds will part and the sky cracks open
And God himself will reach his fucking arm through
Just to push you down, just to hold you down
Stuck in this hole with the shit and the piss
And it's hard to believe it could come down to this
Back at the beginning, sinking, spinning

And in the end we still pretend
The time we spend not knowing when
You're finally free and you could be

But it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
No, it didn't turn out quite the way that you wanted it

Now you know
This is what it feels like
Now you know
This is what it feels like

Now you know
This is what it feels like
Now you know
This is what it feels like

You can try to stop it but it keeps on coming
You can try to stop it but

You try to stop it but it keeps on coming
You can try to stop it but it keeps on coming
You can try to fucking stop it but it keeps on coming
Shit, you can try, but it keeps on coming
But it keeps on coming
You can try
