Trent Not So Pretty Now…

Not So Pretty Now was performed live the other night and I have been able to get a copy of the bootleg from a friend. I must say, while not as bad as the little clip of it led me to believe it would be, but I still think its probably the worst NIN song I’ve heard in a long time.

Lyrics:

You left your opening open wide
And you let everyone come inside
There’s always something you’ve got to hide
So you lied, and you lied, and you lied
Make sure to grab everything that you need
You’ve got a hole that you’ve got to feed
You try to fill it all up with your greed
But it bleeds, and it bleeds, and it bleeds

Go take a little more
We’ll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you’re not so pretty now
A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you’re not so pretty now

Nobody burns quite as bright
Well goddamn, maybe you’re right
There’s always battles before you to fight
And you might you might just might
But there is something I gotta say
There is a price you know you pay
Try as hard as you can to stay
He’s just fading, and fading, and fading the fuck away

Go take a little more
We’ll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you’re not so pretty now
A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you’re not so pretty now

Better turn the lights down low
The cracks begin to show
We love you anyhow
But you’re not so pretty now
And soon you will be gone
And we will all have won
You never mattered anyhow
And you’re not so pretty now

There have been many people that apparently love this song and think its just wonderful, I wouldn’t particularly agree but who knows, maybe it’ll grow on me (like The Hand that Feeds). You can find the torrent download here @ Demonoid (you’ll need to be registered).
