Brown, Danny - Downward Spiral Lyrics




I'm sweating like I’m in a rave
Been in this room for 3 days
Think I’m hearing voices
Paranoid and think I’m seeing ghost-es, oh shit
Phone keep ringing but I cut that shit off
Only time I use it when I tell the dealer drop it off
Had a threesome last night, ain’t matter what it cost
Couldn’t it get hard, tried to stuff it in soft
Had to fuck em both raw, keep my fingers crossed
Been grinding on my teeth so long it's swelling up my jaw
Nothing on but my bathrobe and pinky ring
Your worst nightmare for me is a normal dream
And if I learned anything
Is don’t nod off with ya motherfucking cigarette burning
Knocking on my door but I won’t answer
Residue on mirrors, Jojo dancer

And it's a downward spiral
Gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out
Cause it's the downward spiral
I gotta figure it out (out)
Gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out

Everybody say, you got a lot to be proud of
Been high this whole time, don’t realize what I done
Cause when I’m all alone, feel like no one care
Isolate myself and don’t go nowhere
Smoking blunt after blunt, 'til my eyes start burning
Hennessy straight got my chest like a furnace
Drowning frustrations in a ocean of sin
Thinking irrational, I have no emotions
Cold cold world, some might say
Freezing on the snow, brain feel a bit frostbit
Nauseous, don’t know the last time I ate
But I eat these fucking rappers like fucking last steak
On death row, feel like I am
You never know, one day you're here, the next you're gone
So I put it all up in these songs...

And it's a downward spiral
Gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out
Cause it's the downward spiral
I gotta figure it out (out)
Gotta figure it out (out)
I gotta figure it out

Brown, Danny Downward Spiral Comments
  1. Spinning TV

    If you're listening to this album for the first time...


    Welcome to the E X H I B I T I O N.


    Enjoy your Stay.

  2. BollyBibby

    I find this track weirdly relaxing

  3. Brian F19

    This album is a masterpiece

    mysteriousgamer89

    without question, honestly the 4th best album of the decade.

  4. Raymond Hayley

    Danny Brown is like the Primus of Hip-Hop

  5. Vedova Giocasta

    Uau!!! Danny loves Bacon and J.G. Ballard?

  6. Vawtunanes

    Such a great album opener

  7. sorrowful Satchel

    First time listening to Danny Brown…so uh...is his delivery like this on every track?

    JR 07

    @sorrowful Satchel this is his most risky and best album to date, its also the least accessible Album

    sorrowful Satchel

    JR 07 ok, but the only reason I don’t like this is because of his cartoony vocal delivery. If it was different, I would probably like it more.

    Solid Snake

    @sorrowful Satchel start with xxx...this album is very experimental

    bitterafterlaughter

    He s not always like this but most of the time he is it either grows on you or if doesnt

    I gotta figure it out (out)
    Gotta figure it out (out)
    I gotta figure it out

  9. Just Call Me Brad

    I feel like this song represents everything that Cole failed to do with KOD

    Weyes Noir

    @Ronnie Epting one provides perspective in a unique way, the other is pointing out the obvious.

    who is like God?

    @Just Call Me Brad if you need a rap song to convince you not to do hard drugs theres no hope for you bro

    skapity bap

    @who is like God? some people are too stupid to listen to rules like when someone says not to do something it makes you want to do it more. What Danny is doing is he's telling me it's cool to do drugs of your ready to handle extreme paranoia, insomnia, erectile dysfunction, what he's doing is he's not telling you not to do drugs he's telling you what it's like afterwards sure it's fun in the moment but it really fucks people up afterwards

    HENDRIX

    skapity bap exactly, while there’s people like nba young boy glorifying it and acting as it’s a cool thing to do when it’s not.

    mysteriousgamer89

    @finesserphd indeed, it'd be like comparing a soft rapper to a hardcore one considering how superior danny brown is to j cole. i like cole but he's never been great other than 2 mixtapes. danny on the otherhand is one of the top 5 best in the game right now straight beast.

  10. Thurman Merman

    This whole album is Fear and Loathing put into music...... AE is fucking genius.

  11. Enrique Suazo

    Jimi wouldve loved him

    nikoprodyougoslavia

    On this track, yes

    cornerflat

    Jimi digging cats

  12. Ðavy

    Gotta love that slapping German krautrock sample! (Oxymoron - Guru Guru)

    cornerflat

    Thank you for this! Ive been addicted to this beat since 2016

  13. nagi champa

    This is great but I can understand how can someone might hate it. It's not for everyone!

  14. DookeyQueen

    This shit is trash

  15. [ Morioh ambulance ]

    Sound like the hip hop version of captain beefheart

  16. central coast 831

    NINE INCH NAILS

  17. DMRAILROAD759

    *ITS NEVER OGRE*

  18. STRIVE

    THIS IS FIRE

  19. Vittuu mun ovelta

    This song tells a story of my life

  20. Kid King

    Idk people hate this type of music and say Danny Brown is too weird for hip hip to handle, I love experimental hip hop and I love Danny Brown and I feel like I'm part of the family ✊

    Ainsley's Chen

    Some experimental hip hop is genuinely really difficult to enjoy even after hearing it loads but danny brown has a more catchy delivery and the beats are kind of more coherent so yea they may as well give him a second try

    Moses Messiah

    You just answered your own question.

    Black Gazebo

    When you've listened to Trout Mask Replica, nothing sounds weird anymore lol.

  21. AMG

    Leave it to Sir Danny Brown to summarize my entire adult life in under 3 minutes.

    A corpse in Russia

    Legit just my paranoia not even high just paranoid well i am sometimes by my dad as he smokes but then im just chill usually im up alot looking around like a schizophrenic(Which i might be)

  22. Rotten & Remixed Records

    Hit us up for remixes

  23. Maze

    Wtf did my brain just try to process?

    Karson Shaffer

    Maze great music

    Jacob Heaton

    A song you dont relate to

  24. Lelo Stimulous

    Dont nod off with yo mothafuckin cigarette burnin.

  25. Michael Masters

    Everybody said, you got alot to be proud of, been high this whole time don't realize what I've done

  26. TheQupus

    shame this doesnt have more views. where the danny fans at?!?

  27. Logan Moore

    Jesus he really paints a perfect picture of a paranoid tweaker just bugging out in his hotel with those lyrics

    Jazmyn Sills

    im sitting in a hotel room being a paranoid tweaker...wow u hit home

    Sponge Anus

    Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas: The Album

    Jona

    PolarBearSwag !

    Logan Moore I was heavy into drugs when this album dropped ( been clean since Feb 2017), and your comment is very accurate 👍🏻

  28. MajikMan 123

  42. Nick Sheufelt

    How in the blue fuck did he rap on this beat? Jesus, what a madman.

  43. Chesus Jrist

    Intresting that the name of his album is the same for the first song of joy division's last album.

    Maybe a nod?

    Sackings

    He also has a lyrical reference to Joy Division in one of the songs on this album

    Tavis Hurn

    Definitely a nod. Although it's a novel by J G Ballard.

    doublerre

    Danny Brown's Atrocity Exhibition has a song called Downward Spiral
    Nine Inch Nails' The Downward Spiral has a song called Closer
    Joy Division's Closer has a song called Atrocity Exhibition

    Vittuu mun ovelta

    Danny told that he listened fuck ton of joy division while making this album and that it was also inspiration to this album

    Austin Lopez

    @doublerre This kind of musical attribution which creates a cycle is straight up brilliant. Good catch

    AMG

    Bc the Grammy's are a fucking bad sad joke just like the Academy Awards.

    nagi champa

    Easy. It's not pop enough for a Grammy!

    Vinsmoke

    @AMG Agreed there's numerous times where the grammy's were a complete fucking joke like in 2012 when macklemore won over Kendrick

    ATEAMT

    ShaHenAhGoat xTDE Dreamer cuz it’s too weird for the normies

    Latha Guruswamy

    Cuz Grammy's are only for bitches

  48. Guillermo Ibáñez Gómez
