Where Is Everybody? (Version) Lyrics

by Nine Inch Nails

Did you happen to catch or did it happen so fast?
What you thought would always last has passed you by
Is everything speeding up or am I slowing down?
I'm just spinnin' around and I don't know why

All the pieces don't fit though I really don't give a shit
I never wanted to be like you
But for all I aspire, I am really a liar
And I'm running out of things I can do

I'd like to stay but every day
Everything pushes me further away
If you could show, help me to know
How it's supposed to be
Where did it go?

Pleadin' and needin' and bleeding'
And breedin' and feedin', exceedin'
Where is everybody?
Trying and lying, defying
Denying, crying and dying
Where is everybody?

Well, okay, enough, you've had your fun
But come on, there has got to be someone
Hasn't yet become so numb and succumb
And God damn, I am so tired of pretendin'

Of wishing I was endin'
When all I'm really doing is trying to hide
And keep it inside, fill it with lies
Open my eyes, maybe I wish I could try

Pleadin' and needin' and bleeding'
And breedin' and feedin', exceedin'
Where is everybody?
Trying and lying, defying
Denying, crying and dying
Where is everybody?

Pleadin' and needin' and bleeding'
And breedin' and feedin', exceedin'
Where is everybody?
Trying and lying, defying
Denying, crying and dying
Where is everybody?
