The Wretched (Version) 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, did it?
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?

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

It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it, did it?
It didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
But it didn't turn out the way you wanted it to
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
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
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 it keeps on coming
You can try to stop it but it keeps on coming
You can try to stop it but it keeps on coming
