Tool – Bottom lyrics

My compassion is broken now
My will is eroded now
Desire is broken now
It makes me feel alive
I'm on my knees and burnin'
My piss and moans are the fuel that sets my head on fire
So smell my soul burn
I'm broken lookin' up to see the enemy
And I have swallowed the poison you feed me
But I survive on the poison you feed me
Guilt fed, hatred fed, weakness fed
And it makes me feel ugly
On my knees and burnin'
My piss and moans are the fuel that sets my head on fire
I'm dead inside

Shit adds up, shit adds up, shit adds up, shit adds up at the bottom

If I let you, you would make me destroy myself
In order to survive you, I must first survive myself
I can sink no further, and I cannot forgive you
There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you
I've gone to great lenghts to expand my threshold of pain
I will use my mistakes against you, there's no other choice
I'm shameless now, I'm nameless now, I'm nothing now, I'm no one now
But my soul must be iron 'cause my fear is naked
I'm naked and fearless
And my fear is naked

Dead inside, dead inside, dead inside
Nameless now, shameless now, nothing now, no one now
Shit adds up (x4)
And you see me naked now
Fearless now, naked now (x2)
Shit adds up
It leaves me dead inside (x4)

Hatred keeps me alive
Angriness keeps me alive
Weakness keeps me alive
Guilt keeps me alive
At the bottom
