Tempo: 80 BPM

"She's Gone Away" is the third track on the 2016 EP Not The Actual Events. The song features Mariqueen Maandig as a guest vocalist.

In a Q+A session before the 2017 Riot Fest show, it was revealed that "She's Gone Away" was written specifically for Twin Peaks: The Return and that a different (and possibly unreleased) song was originally presented to David Lynch who rejected it, asking for something edgier. Nine Inch Nails (billed as "The Nine Inch Nails" and consisting of Trent Reznor, Robin Finck, Mariqueen Maandig, Atticus Ross, Alessandro Cortini and Joey Castillo of Queens Of The Stone Age) appeared in an episode doing a mimed performance of the song, which also appears on the soundtrack for the new series.

Lyrics

Lyric card depicting "Reptile" superimposition
   You dig in places till your fingers bleed
   Spread the infection where you spill your seed
   I can't remember what she came here for
   I can't remember much of anything anymore
   
   She's gone
   She's gone
   She's gone away
   
   A little mouth opened up inside
   Yeah, I was watching on the day she died
   We keep licking while the skin turns black
   Cut along the length (but you can't get the feeling back)
   
   She's gone
   She's gone
   She's gone away
   
   Are you still here?

Lyrics embedded in the Apple Music release include extra, unsung words directly referencing "Reptile":

   you dig in places til your fingers bleed
   she spreads herself wide open to let the insects in
   spread the infection where you spill your seed
   she leaves a trail of honey to show me where she's been
   i can't remember what she came here for
   i can't remember much of anything anymore

In the physical component for Not The Actual Events, the song lyrics are superimposed over a copy of page 14 from the Deluxe Edition booklet of The Downward Spiral.
