HURT
(Trent Reznor)
JOHNNY CASH (AMERICAN/LOST HIGHWAY, 2002)

I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain, the only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole, the old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away, but I remember everything
What have I become, my sweetest friend?
Everyone I know, goes away in the end
And you could have it all, my empire of dirt
I will let you down, I will make you hurt
I wear this crown of thorns, upon my liars chair
Full of broken thoughts, I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time, the feelings disappear
You are someone else, I am still right here
What have I become, my sweetest friend?
Everyone I know, goes away in the end
And you could have it all, my empire of dirt
I will let you down, I will make you hurt
If I could start again, a million miles away
I would keep myself, I would find a way
