I Would For You

This is the only known version. A beat loop characterised by quick double kicks opens this track, with deep bass and quiet vocals creating the first verse. Choruses open up with a simpler, clearer drum loop, a different bassline, and strange guitar layering that acts like a strings keyboard patch, creating a large stage for Reznor's loud and echoing vocals. The second chorus is followed by a new distorted guitar riff, which repeats as synth and percussion layers build; these eventually give way to a solitary piano melody, which quietly segues into "In Two" in a method recalling "Lights in the Sky" becoming "Corona Radiata" on The Slip.

Live

This song debuted live on the first night of the Tension 2013 Tour.

Lyrics

   What a pathetic string of words
   Just leave them lying on the floor
   The warning posted on the door
   Not over here not anymore
   There was a place that could have been
   Step over all that used to be
   Since you've invited yourself in
   Some things I'd rather you not see
   
   See I keep lying to myself
   Don't know what else there is to do
   If I could be somebody else
   Well, I think I would for you
   
   Didn't seem like something more?
   So long I can't remember when
   And this has happened all before
   And this will happen all again
   And I only have myself to blame
   And I only have myself to blame
   
   See I keep lying to myself
   Don't know what else there is to do
   If I could be somebody else
   Well, I think I would for you

In the final version of the song, the second to last line in the first verse is changed to:

 Since you have let yourself come in
