I'm Looking Forward To Joining You, Finally

This is the original album version. It is characterised by very minimalist musical elements, beginning with an uneasy chord played on strings. These are soon overcome by the drum loop, which features some odd percussion sounds, and the bassline, as well as Reznor's vocals. The strings make reappearances throughout the verses and the bridge, a section driven by a different percussion loop and bassline. Quiet and brief flourishes of piano appear intermittently.

On the vinyl edition of The Fragile, the introductory strings do not crossfade with the end loop of "Complication" as on the CD.

Lyrics

    As black as the night can get
    Everything is safer now
    There's always a way to forget
    Once you learn to find a way how
    
    In the blur of serenity
    Where did everything get lost?
    The flowers of naïveté
    Buried in a layer of frost
    
    The smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
    
    Thought he had it all before they called his bluff
    Found out that his skin just wasn't thick enough
    Wanted to go back to how it was before
    Thought he lost everything
    Then he lost a whole lot more
    
    A fool's devotion
    Swallowed up in empty space
    The tears of regret
    Frozen to the side of his face
    
    The smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
    
    I've done all I can do
    Could I please come with you?
    Sweet smell of sunshine
    I remember sometimes
