Nine Inch Nails – « The Becoming »

nine inch nails - the becoming

I beat my machine its a part of me its inside of me
Im stuck in this dream its changing me I am becoming
The me that you know had some second thoughts
Hes covered with scabs and he is broken and sore
The me that you know doesnt come around much
That part of me isnt here anymore

All pain disappears its the nature of my circuitry
Drowns out all I hear theres no escape from this my new consciousness
That me that you know used to have feelings
But the blood has stopped pumping and hes left to decay
The me that you know is now made up of wires
And even when Im right with you Im so far away

I can try to get away but Ive strapped myself in
I can try to scratch away the sound in my ears
I can see it killing away all my bad parts
I dont want to listen but its all too clear
Hiding backwards inside of me I feel so unafraid
Annie, hold a little tighter I might just slip away

It wont give up it wants me dead
Goddamn this noise inside my head

Nine Inch Nails, The Becoming (in The Downward Spiral – 1994)
