Hurt...nine Inch Nails

This is another one of my favorite songs.

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
you could have it all
my empire of dirt
i will let you down
i will make you hurt

i wear my crown of ****
on my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
i cannot repair
beneath the stain of time
the feeling disappears
you are someone else
i am still right here

what have i become?
my sweetest friend
everyone i know
goes away in the end
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

This is the opitome of great songwriting!<BR><BR><BR>Respect! Thankyou so much for reminding me of this one in particular. What a good choice. Well, I'm off to Youtewb then.. :p

N.I.N is fantastic

The Johnny Cash cover of this song is quite possibly one of the most beautifully heart-wrenching performances in music history.<br />
<br />
A fine choice :P
