about

Nadir is the bottom point in a curve and the guy in this song has reached his 'bottom'.

lyrics

This is the bottom,
The place of self-rejection.
Just shook hands with broken glass,
It use to be my reflection,
Till I punched it with my fist,
Couldn't bear to look at it.
Didn't feel the pain in my bones,
But deep down inside it hit home.

This is the bottom,
And everything looks rotten from down here.
My heart's an empty bottle,
There's nothing I hold dear to me.

This is the bottom,
The point of no return.
So don't tell me that die ain't cast,
It was the first thing that I learned.
And now my last last chance is used,
There's no one's kindness left to abuse.
There's no way to turn it around,
The spiral always corkscrews down.

This is the bottom,
And everything looks rotten from down here.
My heart's an empty bottle,
There's nothing I hold dear to me.

Used to hold to near to me,
Back in better days.
The future seemed so clear to me,
Before my fall from grace.
I never thought I'd end up hear,
My nadir x 5

This is the bottom,
And there's no ladder I can climb.
I sold my soul digging for gold,
And now I haven't got a dime.
No, I haven't got a prayer,
Or belief in something out there,
Won't hold my breath for better times,
I know this is the end of the line.

This is the bottom,
And everything looks rotten from down here.
My heart's an empty bottle,
There's nothing I hold dear to me.
To me, To me, To Me,
There's nothing I hold dear to me.
To me, To me, To Me,
There's nothing I hold dear to me.
Nadir x 8
No there's nothing I hold dear to me.

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
