Nobody's Daughter
by Hole

Album: Nobody's Daughter (2010)
  • Made something better, he kept it for himself
    I'm not that stupid, I just need a lot of help
    To understand how stupid you really are
    Down at the bottom of the ocean I lay down

    Nobody's coming, just continue to drown
    And no one here could ever stop my ruin now now
    And I know I've got not to fear
    You'll get me out

    Oh god just get me out of here
    Are you astounding us, surrounding us
    And asphyxiate all your pain away
    Don't try to win it will only end in disgrace

    Nobody's daughter, she never was, she never will
    Be beholden to anyone she cannot kill
    You don't understand how damaged we really are
    You don't understand how evil we really are

    And I will dig my own grave
    I'm miss begotten
    I am the last one you save here
    Of course I'll sleep forever and forever

    Anesthetize all your horrors away
    We live inside this black web that you have spun
    Greed, your bile is miles away
    Don't tell me I have I lost when clearly I've won

    I want to see you stretched out on the floor
    The world broken doll
    The world's shattered whore
    And you you can't walk

    But you you can crawl
    Come on infect us all
    Asphyxiate all your pain away
    Don't try to win it will only end in disgrace

    Translucetize the cold light of day
    It's glorious, its terrible god I need it
    It's beautiful it's ravenous; I'll just feed it
    Coil down to your black dark decay

    And I will dig my own grave now
    I'm miss begotten
    I am the last one you save here
    It's all gone rotten Writer/s: MICHAEL BEINHORN, MICKRO LARKIN, COURTNEY M. LOVE
