"Now I'm Nothing" is a song that was written for and used as an introduction to NIN's set during the Lollapalooza tour in 1991. It was always followed by "Terrible Lie," but was never recorded in the studio nor officially released. A live recording of it can, however, be found on the DVD release of Closure, and in audio form on bootlegs.

Now I'm Nothing (Closure)

Contained in the bonus footage on the Closure DVD, this is a live recording from Lollapalooza '91.


"Now I'm Nothing" debuted on the Lollapalooza Tour and Pretty Hate Machine European Tour, then resurfaced for occasional performances on the NIN/JA Tour to once again precede "Terrible Lie."


    I smashed myself to pieces
    I'm gonna fuck myself up
    I'm sifting through the ashes
    Of what I have become
    I gave myself away
    Now I'm nothing
    I let it slip away
    Now I'm nothing
    All that I can do
    Is break myself in two
    I fucked it all away
    Now I'm nothing
    Wave goodbye
