Hurt

(words by Trent Reznor)

I hurt myself today.
To see if I still feel.
I focus on the pain,
The only thing that's real.
The needle tears a hole.
The old familiar sting.
Try to kill it all away.
But I remember everything.

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know goes away
In the end.
And you could have it all;
My empire of dirt.
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt.

I wear this crown of thorns,
Upon my liar's chair.
Full of broken thoughts,
I cannot repair.
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear.
You are someone else,
I am still right here.

What have I become
My sweetest friend?
Everyone I know goes away
In the end.
And you could have it all;
My empire of dirt.
I will let you down,
I will make you hurt.

If I could start again;
A million miles away.
I would keep myself;
I would find a way.

I would find a way..
