Latest revision as of 21:26, 8 August 2017

Many of Trent Reznor's lyrics are thematically similar across songs and albums. This is an expansion of a list compiled at ETS by user "Christ".

Abandonment/rejection

Afraid to see

  • Heresy: "he sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see"
  • Right Where It Belongs: "would you find yourself, find yourself afraid to see?"
  • Capital G: "there's a lot of me inside you, maybe you're afraid to see"

A million miles away

  • Hurt: "If I could start again, a million miles away"
  • All The Love In The World: "I've become a million miles aw(ay)" - in addition, the phrase appears in the accompanying unsung lyrics printed on the With Teeth PDF poster: "Right beside is still a million miles away"
  • 1,000,000: "I feel a million miles away"

Asleep

Becoming

  • Now I'm Nothing: "oh, what I have become!"
  • Gave Up: "after everything I've done, I hate myself for what I've become"
  • Fist Fuck: "can you let your heart become central pump-house for all human feelings?"
  • Closer: "help me become somebody else"
  • The Becoming
  • Hurt: "what have I become, my sweetest friend?"
  • We're In This Together: "I've become impossible"
  • Even Deeper: "just how damaged have I become?"
  • The Great Below: "the destiny I've chose, all becoming clear"
  • Where Is Everybody?:"come on there has got to be someone, hasn't yet become so numb and succumb"
  • The New Flesh: "yes I am becoming" / "I've become"
  • Me, I'm Not: "and it's hard to believe just what I've become"
  • All the Love In the World: "I've become a million miles aw(ay)"
  • Only: "I’m becoming less defined as days go by"
  • Vessel: "I am becoming something else, I am turning into God"
  • 10 Miles High: "I swore to God I'd never turn into you"
