even deeper - by nin

i woke up today
to find myself in the other place
with a trail of my footprints
from where i ran away

it seems everything i've heard
just might be true
and you know me
(well you think you do)

sometimes, i have everything-
yet i wish i felt something

do you know how far this has gone?
just how damaged have i become?
when i think i can overcome
it runs even deeper

in a dream i'm a different me
with a perfect you
we fit perfectly
for once in my life i feel complete-

and i still want to ruin it
afraid to look
as clear as day
this plan has long been underway

i hear them call
i cannot stay
the voice inviting me away

do you know how far this has gone?
just how damaged have i become?
when i think i can overcome
it runs even deeper

everything that matters is gone (everything that matters is gone)
all the hands of hope have withdrawn (everything)
could you try to help me hang on?
it runs...

i'm straight
i won't crack
on my way
and i can't turn back

i'm okay
i'm on track
on my way
and i can't turn back

i stayed
on this track
gone too far
and i can't come back

i stayed
on this track
lost my way
can't come back

i stayed
on this track
gone too far
and i can't come back

i stayed
on this track
lost my way
can't come back

i stayed
on this track
gone too far
and i can't come back

i stayed
on this track
lost my way
can't come back

I read the lyrics for the fragile (yet again) while I was on the train into Philly. Wonderful(ly depressing) - thanks, Trent!
