"Supernaut" is a song originally written and recorded by Black Sabbath and covered by Ministry side project 1000 Homo DJs. Several versions of the song exist, and though Trent Reznor recorded the original vocals for the song, several debates exist as to which version contains his contributions, as he remains uncredited on official releases due to contractual spats with TVT Records. It is one of several songs misattributed to NIN.

I want to reach out and touch the sky I want to touch the sun, but I don't want to fly I'm gonna climb up every mountain on the moon I found the dish that runs away with the spoon Supernaut Supernaut I've crossed the ocean, done every land I found the crossing at the golden rainbow's end I've been through magic and through life's reality I've lived a thousand years, it never bothered me Bothered me Supernaut Bothered me Supernaut Got no religion, don't need no friends Got all I want, I got no need to pretend Don't try to reach me, cause I'll tear up your mind I've seen the future and I'd leave it all behind Supernaut Supernaut
