Versions

In Two

This is the only known version. Beginning with quiet synth layers, the verses open with busy drum loops and repetitive bass with manipulated vocals. These are broken up by layers of high-pitched vocals backed by piano between the first two verses, which later become the prominent features of the chorus, though augmented by a big, simple beat. The song then cuts to a quiet buildup reminiscent of dynamic bridges in songs like "Mr. Self Destruct" and "With Teeth," led by a bassline of 8th notes, atmosphere layers, distant vocals and guitar. They explode into a return to the chorus beat, deep bass and rhinocerous-esque 'swarm' guitar soloing, all of which end the song suddenly and lead directly into "While I'm Still Here."

Live

This song debuted live on the eleventh night of the Tension 2013 Tour. It featured backing vocals by Lisa Fischer and Sharlotte Gibson.

Lyrics

   Split
   Split into
   Something else
   Shed
   Your precious skin
   Save yourself
   Bleed
   Have to purge
   What you were
   Yes
   Yes of course
   This is going to hurt
   Nature is violent
   The very nature of this is violence
   No no no no no that was someone else
   No no no no no no no that wasn't me
   
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   I don't believe you can even remember which one you are
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   
   Thrive
   Just become
   Your disease
   Leave
   Them behind
   You are free
   Take
   What you want
   What you deserve
   Yes
   Yes of course
   This is going to hurt
   
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   I don't believe you can even remember who you are
   It's getting harder to tell the two of you apart
   
   I just don't know anymore
   I just don't know

In the final recording, the line in the second chorus is changed to:

    I don't believe you can even remember which one you are
