Getting Smaller Lyrics - Nine Inch Nails

Review The Song (3)



Getting a little erratic here
And I don't know who to trust
I guess they got a way of reading my mind
I guess I gotta adjust
I got my arms that flip flop flip flop flip
I got my head on a spring
Well I thought I got you on my side
I haven't got fucking anything

I'm just a face in the crowd
Nothing to worry about
Not even tryin' to stand out
I'm getting smaller and smaller and smaller
And I have nothing to say
It's all been taken away
I just behave and obey
I'm afraid I am starting to fade away

Uh-huh

Can kind of see through the cracks
When I press up to the wall
I'm not looking to stand up real high
I'd be happy to crawl
I think I'm losing my grip
But I can still make a fist
You know I still got my one good arm
That I can beat...
nnn, I can beat myself up with!

I'm just a face in the crowd
Nothing to worry about
Not even tryin' to stand out
I'm getting smaller
And smaller and smaller
And I have nothing to say
It's all been taken away
I just behave and obey
I'm afraid I am starting to fade away

Hey and for what it is worth
I really used to believe
That maybe there's some great thing
That we could achieve
And now I can't tell the difference
Don't know what to feel
Between what I've been trying so hard to see
And what appears to be real

Fade away
Fade away
Fade away
Fade away

My world is getting smaller everyday
Hey hey hey hey
And that's ok (x4)

NIN rules | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/10

This is one of very few NIN songs that I did not like after the 1st listen.
I would skip over it every time it came on when listening to With Teeth.
But then I hear it live, and I actually listen to the lyrics...
then I do an about face.

I went like 3 years or so not liking this song, and now it is one of my all time favorites.

NIN rules like that.
Trent Reznor is the most under appreciated artist of our generation.



My world is getting smaller everyday and that's ok | Reviewer: A Treznornite | 11/1/07

This song is by far one of the best off of [WITH_TEETH] and with the industrial distorted guitar riff from the begin to end, it's just pure awsome. The lyrics as always give you a good insight on what Trent was thinking when he was writing it. Trent's just an awsome songwriter and there is noone who can tell me different.
