Hang Nail

Author Comments

Wrote this song in June 2021. At the time, I was listening to a lot of Doom Metal, and Death Metal, which inspired the lyrics.


Title stems from the fact I had a hangnail on my toe at the time. The bridge and verse 4 portions of the lyrics stem from two other pieces of poetry I had written.


"Hang Nail" Lyrics:


V1:

Slinking around you're just a hang nail

Flailing on down and destined to fail

You're always hanging around

You're always hanging around


Chorus:

Just dragging us down like the skin on the ground

Doing whatever you can with whatever it entails

A grand plan going full-scale

A grand plan that is going full-scale


V2:

Pulling away from your Ink-diseased skin

Unknowing what the futures holds within

Your flesh grips tighter with every last sin


Chorus:

Just dragging us down like the skin on the ground

Doing whatever you can with whatever it entails

A grand plan going full-scale

A grand plan that is going full-scale


V3:

A thought never told, but one to begin

Growing so old, without one to reckon with


Chorus:

Just dragging us down like the skin on the ground

Doing whatever you can with whatever it entails

A grand plan going full-scale

A grand plan that is going full-scale


V4:

Bought time to hide fears of bliss... 

Caught yourself with tears on your lips


Chorus:

Just dragging us down like the skin on the ground

Doing whatever you can with whatever it entails

A grand plan going full-scale

A grand plan that is going full-scale


V5:

Slinking around you're just a hang nail

Flailing on down and destined to fail

You're always hanging around

You're always hanging around


Bridge:

Early cries grin a glare of death

Laughing adorns pour onto your flesh
