Versions

All Time Low

This is the original album version. Following an extended ambient introduction, the main body of the song is introduced, with a dance beat loop surrounded by jangling guitars unique to this track; the bass riff and beat closely resemble, intentionally or not, that of the Abba track "The Name of the Game". It later features descending, echoing synth melodies also rarely used in NIN tracks. The verse vocals recall the delivery used atop the similarly-danceable electronics of "Vessel."

All Time Low (Todd Rundgren Remix)

Running Time: 5:49

This version is included on the deluxe version of Hesitation Marks. It largely drops the guitar layers and instead features new, complex drumming patterns, and it prominently highlights the unique vocal layering present in the original.

Song Credits

  • Remixed by Todd Rundgren
  • Vocals by Trent Reznor and Todd Rundgren

All Time Low (Demo)

This version only appears on the iTunes and HDtracks digital download version of the album. It is a partial demo version of the final song.

Live

This song debuted live on the first night of the Tension 2013 Tour. For this song, Palladino's bass is very prominently featured and if the song is present early in the set, it's generally the first use of the backing vocalists, Lisa Fischer and Sharlotte Gibson. The stealth screen in front has red thrumming coloration projected onto it for most of the song (similar to the general appearance of "Closer") before slowly becoming a multicolored aurora towards the end. At some shows, Trent sings the chorus to "Closer" during this portion, before the final repetitions of "stretch across the sky."

Lyrics

   Go
   I've heard all I need to know
   Your voice in fucking echo stereo
   Well this particular scenario
   Looks like another all time low
   Why did you go and let them in?
   See this is where the fun begins
   You haven't even pierced the skin
   Just wait till you see what is coming
   
   Get down on the floor
   Shut the god damn door
   Been down this road before
   We're coming back for more
   
   So give me just a little, baby
   Just something to get by
   This is gonna last forever, baby
   We'll get to the other side
   And we will live forever, baby
   And stretch across the sky
   I'll follow right behind you, baby
   We are never gonna die
   
   Hey
   Everything is not okay
   We lost too much along the way
   The passengers arrived today
   It looks as though they're here to stay
   This paranoia turns to fear
   Just who was whispering in your ear?
   Pretending, but I know you hear
   (Just how'd we fucking end up here?)
   
   So give me just a little, baby
   Just something to get by
   This is gonna last forever, baby
   We'll get to the other side
   And we will live forever, baby
   And stretch across the sky
   I'll follow right behind you, baby
   We are never gonna die
   
   We're never gonna die
   How did we get so high?

In the final recording, the line in the first verse is changed to:

    You barely even pierced the skin

The fourth line of each chorus also seems to omit the word "to".
