Versions

Disappointed

This is the album version. Its prominent beat loop features frequent hand claps; after it begins the track, the synth bassline joins, and Reznor's long, held verse vocals are distant and muffled in the background. They become louder as the chorus 'swarm' guitars enter. The second half of the track after a second, clearer chorus is a lengthy denouement of ambience and distant guitars with the beat loop and bassline, with layers of wordless vocals behind.

Live

This song debuted live on the second night of the NIN 2013 Festival Tour. During the Tension 2013 Tour, this song featured backing vocals by Lisa Fischer and Sharlotte Gibson.

Lyrics

   If I were you
   I wouldn't trust
   A single word
   I say
   Think by now
   You should know
   Nothing's going
   To change
   
   Can I ask you something?
   What did you expect?
   So disappointed
   With what you get
   Do you ever want to
   Just get out of here?
   Disappointed
   Disappear
   
   Look at you
   Superman
   With all the world
   To save
   You think by now
   You'd figure out
   That's nothing's going
   To change
   (And I am part of the reason)
   
   Can I ask you something?
   What did you expect?
   So disappointed
   With what you get
   Do you ever want to
   Just get out of here?
   Disappointed
   Disappear

The following lines are present in the lyrics booklet for Hesitation Marks at the end of the first verse, but are not sung.

   All of this
   Theater
   I wouldn't waste
   Your voice
   Comes a day
   You figure out
   You never had
   A choice

The last two lines of the chorus are performed differently from the official lyrics as follows:

   ...
   So disappointed
   You disappear
