Album: Add Violence
Length: 4:44 / 4:51 (Video version)
Tempo: 122 BPM
Versions: This Isn't The Place
Live: Cold And Black And Infinite Tour

"This Isn't The Place" is the third track on the 2017 EP Add Violence. It was first made available through the official Nine Inch Nails YouTube channel on July 18, 2017. Though currently only speculation, the unreleased song "My Dead Friend" seems to have a strong connection to the song's lyrics. At its live debut, Trent Reznor stated that the song was about David Bowie, and followed it by playing "I'm Afraid Of Americans".

Music Video

An official music video was uploaded on July 18th. It shows the machine that is visible on the front cover of the EP and pans across it before starting to zoom out at the end. During this a package labeled "Sotirivol" by a company called Cedocore can be seen. Because of this, as well as the fact that the director and producer of the video (Alex Lieu and Susan Bonds respectively) are members of 42 Entertainment, it was presumed that a new ARG would happen. The video adds 6 seconds of silence to the start.


  And if you see my friend
  I thought I would again
  A single thin straight line
  I thought we had more time
  Carry me 
  Carry me home

Further lyrics are printed on the physical component, that interestingly are a direct quote from "The Great Below":

  I can still feel you, even so far away
