The Mark Has Been Made

The piece consists of a dark and quiet introduction, featuring a beat with a wah effect, deep synthesizers, strings, and guitar. This section ends suddenly, quickly transitioning to a lone wah guitar melody. It is soon joined by a loud beat and percussive bass and guitar and the return of the guitar melody from the first section. This is followed by a buildup with a new distorted guitar riff, increasing in intensity until it gives way to a beatless reprise of the introduction. On the CD and presumably cassette versions of The Fragile, "The Mark Has Been Made" ends with a short fragment of the song "10 Miles High," a track cut from these formats but that appears after "The Mark Has Been Made" on the vinyl versions of "The Fragile," albeit on a different side.

The Mark Has Been Made (Alternate Version)

Running Time: 4:45

Released on The Fragile: Deviations 1. Also known as "The Mark Has Been Made" (Alt) when it was originally released on Apple Music as part of The Fragile Instrumental. This is a significantly different mix of the album arrangement.

The Mark Has Been Made (And All That Could Have Been)

See Live below.

Live

Backed by watery and flaming visuals from Bill Viola, the live structure remained basically the same except for the ending: the first section before the wah guitar was shortened, and the buildup following it was more concise. The last section saw the band erupting into an entirely new riff, one that seems to echo the ascending notes and rhythmic motif of "Somewhat Damaged" and "The Wretched", with Reznor wailing on top. It segued directly into "Wish."
