Down To Nothing

DOWN TO NOTHING - Written by Carroll Bryant


Every morning I awoke to the pain of another day
God I hope that the world is asleep
If not, I just hope it stays out of my way

What was I thinking?
There is this thing they call life
But I was refusing to live
Wishing that I could hold my breath forever
Repelling the suns light
I didn't want to believe in it
Green light, red light, yellow light and so
I was prepared to leave with nowhere to go 

I was down to nothing
You know it's true
Down to nothing
I was down to nothing with nothing to lose
Down to nothing
And there I was waiting for it all to end
When suddenly it hit me that it already did
And I was down to nothing

What's to believe in, if by chance, you don't even believe in yourself?
The pain is your heaven
The words are your weapon 
The heart is your living hell

What was I thinking?
There is this thing they call love
But I was refusing to give
Dreaming that I could just fly away
Stabbing my own back using my own blade
Morning time, noon time, midnight and then
I was prepared to go through it again

I was down to nothing
You know it's true
Down to nothing
I was down to nothing with nothing to prove
Down to nothing
And there I was waiting for it all to end
When suddenly I realized that it already did
And I was down to nothing

Here, there, everywhere and too blind to see
Believing that everything was just a conspiracy 
And I was down to nothing
Down to nothing

I was down to nothing
You know it's true
Down to nothing
I was down to nothing with nothing to do
Down to nothing
And there I was looking forward to the end
Much to my surprise, it already did
And I was down to nothing
