lyrics

Hit The Bottom Quicker

And when the spirit breaks you feel the pull
Admit there's no escape from limp and lull
Gravity magnified by crushed drive
As feelings dissipate and darkness thrives

You hit the low
The bottom down
It's quicker than
The speed of pound
The pound and shock
And then remorse
You climb aboard
That hobbled… horse

Can't hold on - but why do you even try to decimate the sky
Strength long gone - the fall will purify the truth you try to hide
Can't hold on - but why do you even try to decimate the sky
Strength long gone

You hit the bottom quicker
You'll split the lip that bit ya
And all your vain pretence
Will reel from no defence
You hit the bottom quicker
You split the lip that quit ya
And all your strained pretence
Will keel from weight immense

You hit the low
The bottom down
It's quicker than
The speed of pound
The pound and shock
And then remorse
You climb aboard
That hobbled… horse

Can't hold on…

You hit the bottom quicker
You split the lip that bit ya
You hit the bottom quicker
Ooh Ooh..
