Kinda like a cloud I was up, way up in the sky
and I was feelin’ some feelin’s you wouldn’t believe.
Sometimes I don’t believe them myself.
And I decided I was never… coming down.
Just then a tiny… little dot caught my eye
it was just about too small to see.
But I watched it waaay too long.
It was pulling… me… down.
Lyrics from “Down In It” by Nine Inch Nails, 1989.
