I survived everything
I have tried everything
Everything And anything

All the walls begin to dissolve away
Feel your hands begin to shake
And just who you think you used to be
All begins to bend and break

Wave goodbye
Wish me well
I've become something else Something else
(Just as well, really)

But this thing that lives inside of me
Will surely rise and wake
And the secret breaks right through to me
And it comes to grab and take and take......


I am home I believe
I am home I am free
I am home I can see
Always here
Finally

Great song (and album!) But I think the 4th verse ends thus:

And the secret breaks right through to me
And it comes to grab and take and take......


Either way, thanx for posting it.

I think you are right and I like that better, so I changed it.

I like my version better too ("seed"--ecch!) but yours is correct! Might as well change it back. Us Sixties Kids like to get the words right, even though we couldn't understand "Louie Louie" until it was digitized decades later.

I'm going to keep yours. People can google the real ones if they want. I purposefully mishear lyrics all the time if I find them more meaningful. =)

Great song selection! I was fucking obsessed with NIN back in the day. I still think that The Downward Spiral is one of the greatest albums of all time. I actually got to seem them preform The Downward Spiral live at the old Omni Coliseum here in Atlanta back in early 1995. God, that seems like a lifetime ago!

I have often wondered if Trent Reznor is a survivor himself. I have been unable to find anything confirming that he is but his lyrics seem to reek of it. That doesn't mean he is, and I may be reading things into his lyrics that aren't there, but I have wondered at times. Peace,

Ken

I've wondered that too. Reznor has said his childhood was boring and uneventful. Its only fair to take him at his word, but he sure does a good job articulating suffering.
