Right Where It Belongs

This is the original album version. Heavily atmospheric, its opening ambience transitions from the end of "Beside You In Time" into its first quiet musical elements, a bouncing bassline and guitar riff accompanying a piano lead and soon Reznor's melodic vocals. New melodies and changes join Reznor's choruses, but all of the layers seem muffled and distant throughout. The second verse is characterized by a unique sonic change only found in this NIN song: upon singing the last line of the verse, all the layers become much clearer, soon joined by a cheering crowd erupting as the second and final chorus begins. Reznor quietly and wordlessly accompanies the repeating final piano melody, which ends the song alone.

Right Where It Belongs (Instrumental)

Running Time: 5:18

Released exclusively through Apple Music.

Right Where It Belongs V2

Running Time: 5:04

This is an alternate version of the song, available on the UK and Japanese releases of With Teeth. More minimalistic than the original album version, it simply features a different vocal take accompanied by electric piano. Its structure and lyrics remain the same. This version was also available to download at remix.nin.com.

Right Where It Belongs (Beside You In Time)

This version can be found on the Beside You In Time DVD. It is much quieter than the album version, losing the slightly abrasive synthesizers in exchange for a mellow piano.

Live

On the Fall 2005 and Winter 2006 legs of the Live: With Teeth tour, this song was the centerpiece of the 'slow section' of the concerts, as a curtain was dropped down in front of the stage, onto which video images compiled by Andrea Giacobbe were projected. It was always preceded by "Eraser" and followed by "Beside You In Time". The alternate V2 version was played very rarely on the NIN/JA Tour.

Lyrics

    See the animal in his cage that you built
    Are you sure what side you're on?
    Better not look him too closely in the eye
    Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
    See the safety of the life you have built
    Everything where it belongs
    Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
    And it's all
    Right where it belongs
    
    What if everything around you
    Isn't quite as it seems
    What if all the world you think you know
    Is an elaborate dream?
    And if you look at your reflection
    Is that all you want it to be?
    What if you could look right through the cracks
    Would you find yourself—find yourself afraid to see?
    
    What if all the world's inside of your head
    Just creations of your own?
    Your devils and your gods all the living and the dead
    And you're really all alone
    You can live in this illusion
    You can choose to believe
    You keep looking but you can't find the woods
    While you’re hiding in the trees
    
    What if everything around you
    Isn't quite as it seems
    What if all the world you used to know
    Is an elaborate dream?
    And if you look at your reflection
    Is that all you want it to be?
    What if you could look right through the cracks
    Would you find yourself—find yourself afraid to see?
