Song Credits



  • Hesitation Marks




Find My Way

This is the original album version. Downtempo, atmospheric and contemplative, the song prominently features a beat loop that is constantly augmented with echoes throughout, reminiscent of trip hop beat programming. The verse vocal melody closely resembles and recalls that of "Somewhat Damaged," while the chorus vocals remain wordless, backed by a simple high-register piano melody. The section following the second chorus seems to feature female vocals backing Reznor's wordless melodies. The coda of the track, featuring 'swarm' guitar atop the bassline and piano from the chorus, includes lyrics alluding to those from the coda of "I Do Not Want This."

Find My Way (Oneohtrix Point Never Remix)

Running Time: 4:47

This version is included on the deluxe version of Hesitation Marks. It strips away the original instrumentation and prominently features church organ and other keyboard textures with the original vocals.

Find My Way (Live 2013 EP)

This song debuted live on the first night of the NIN 2013 Festival Tour, and was played at the majority of shows throughout 2013 and 2014, as well as seven more in 2018.


   Lord my path has gone astray
   I'm just trying to find my way
   Wandered here from far away
   I'm just trying to find my way
   You were never meant to see
   All those things inside of me
   Now that you have gone away
   I'm just trying to find my way
   I have made a great mistake
   Pray the Lord my soul to take
   The ghosts of who I used to be
   I can feel them come for me
   It looks as though they're here to stay
   I'm just trying to find my way
   I never meant to
   I never meant for this
   I have been to every place
   I have been to everywhere
   I'm just trying to find my way
   Oh dear Lord hear my prayer
