"The Line Begins To Blur" is the eleventh track on the 2005 release With Teeth.

The last three songs on With Teeth describe the protagonist's views of the world and the way things are going in it, i.e., the way he would like things to be going. On this track, he expresses how what he believed, along with that which he believed in, is changing, shooting off in radical directions. He speaks as if it was destined to be this way, as if he saw it coming all along. This song, along with "Beside You In Time" and "Right Where It Belongs" can almost be seen as a prequel to Year Zero, as they speak about corruption in man's heart, and the world changing, revealing something not before seen ("The Line Begins To Blur" definitely seems to lead up to the Resistance Theory, and Trent Reznor's struggle coping with a world that has completely devolved around him, as the chorus says, "As far as I have gone/I knew what side I'm on/But now I'm not so sure/The line begins to blur… ").

Lyrics

    There are things that I said I would never do
    There are fears that I cannot believe have come true
    For my soul is too sick and too little and too late
    And my self I have grown too weary to hate
    
    The more I stay in here
    The more it's not so clear
    The more I stay in here
    The more I disappear
    As far as I have gone
    I knew what side I'm on
    But now I'm not so sure
    The line begins to blur
    
    Is there somebody on top of me?
    I don't know, I don't know
    Isn't anybody stopping me?
    I don't know, I don't know
    Well I'm trying to hold my breath
    Just how far down can I go?
    I don't know, I don't know
    I don’t know
    
    As I lie here and stare
    The fabric starts to tear
    It's far beyond repair
    And I don't really care
    As far as I have gone
    I knew what side I'm on
    But now I'm not so sure
    The line begins to blur
