Nine Inch Nails

Nine Inch Nails (abbreviated as NIN, sometimes stylized as NIИ) is an American industrial rock project, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio. As its main producer, singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist, Reznor is the only official member of Nine Inch Nails and remains solely responsible for its direction. Nine Inch Nails' music straddles a wide range of genres. After recording a new album, Reznor (until the 2009 Wave Goodbye Tour) usually assembles a live band to perform with him. The touring band features a revolving lineup that often rearranges songs to fit a live setting. On stage, Nine Inch Nails often employs visual elements to accompany performances, which frequently include light shows. more »

(Hey god) why are you doing this to me?
Am I not living up to what I'm supposed to be?
Why am I seething with this animosity?
(Hey god) I think you owe me a great big apology

Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie
Terrible lie

(Hey god) I really don't know what you mean
Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams
I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme
(Hey god) can this world really be as sad as it seems?

Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 

Don't take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to someone on to
Don't tear it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't tear it, don't

(Hey god) there's nothing left for me to hide
I lost my ignorance, security and pride
I'm all alone in a world you must despise
(Hey god) I believed the promises, your promises and lies

Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 
Terrible lie 
Terrible lie

You made me throw it all away, my morals left to decay (terrible lie)
How many you betray you've taken everything (terrible lie)
My head is filled with disease, my skin is begging you please (terrible lie)
I'm on my hands and knees, I want so much to believe

I give you everything my sweet everything 
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to) 
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
You everything my sweet everything (I need someone to hold on to)
