Terrible Lie
by Nine Inch Nails



why are you doing this to me
am i not living up to what i am supposed to be
why am i seething with this animosity
i think you owe me a great big appollogy
terrible lie ... terrible lie
terrible lie ... terrible lie

i really don't know what you mean
seems like salvation comes only in our dreams
i feel my hatred grow all the more extreme
can this world really be as sad as it seems
terrible lie ... terrible lie
terrible lie ... terrible lie

don't take it away from me[X3]
i need you to hold on to
dont take it away from me
i need someone to hold on to
dont tear it away from me[X3]
i need you to hold on to
dont tear it away from me
i need someone to hold on to

theres nothing left for me to hide
ive lost my ignorance security and pride
im all alone a world you must despise
i believed your promises, your promises and lies
terrible lie ... terrible lie
terrible lie ... terrible lie
terrible lie

you make me throw it all away
my morals left to decay
how many you betrayed
you've taken everything
terrible lie

my head is filled with disease
my skin is begging to appease
im on my hands and knees
i want so much to believe
