~NIN's Hurt...Life Soundtrack of the Abused, Abandoned, Forgotten Child~



~Trent Reznor's Hurt is brilliant, beautiful, and most importantly real~
I had listened to this song many times in the past, but it wasn't until I had worked in child protection for awhile that I truly "heard" this song in my heart,soul, and core existence~

~To me, this song represents the feelings, beliefs, struggles, and identity of the abused, abandoned, and forgotten child~

~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 liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappears
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~
