The Hand That Feeds
Nine Inch Nails Lyrics


You're keeping in step
In the line
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
'Cause you do
What you're told
But inside your heart it is black and it's hollow and it's cold

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you wanna change it?

What if this whole crusade's a charade
And behind it all there's a price to be paid
For the blood on which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you wanna change it?

So naive
I keep holding on to what I wanna believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

Nine Inch Nails Lyrics

"The Hand That Feeds"

You're keeping in step 
In the line 
Got your chin held high and you feel just fine 
Cause you do 
What you're told 
But inside your heart it is black and it's hollow and it's cold 

Just how deep do you believe? 
Will you bite the hand that feeds? 
Will you chew until it bleeds? 
Can you get up off your knees? 
Are you brave enough to see? 
Do you want to change it?

What if this whole crusade's
A charade
And behind it all there's a price to be paid
For the blood
On which we dine
Justified in the name of the holy and the divine

Just how deep do you believe?
Will you bite the hand that feeds?
Will you chew until it bleeds?
Can you get up off your knees?
Are you brave enough to see?
Do you want to change it?

So naive
I keep holding on to what I want to believe
I can see
But I keep holding on and on and on and on

[8X]
Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
Will you stay down on your knees?

I was at a pro wrestling show recently, and an instrumental of this song was the entrance theme for one of the wrestlers. A bunch of us in the crowd happened to be Nine Inch Nails fans and began singing the lyrics. After the show, he was interacting with folks and mentioned that he heard people singing the lyrics, which meant a lot to him considering it was his debut in the company.

Definitely a hype song for an intro. Rip Razor.
