Hurt

Lyrics: Trent Reznor
Music: Trent Reznor

Sung by Larry Campbell with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2013. First released by Nine Inch Nails, later covered by Johnny Cash.

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
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar's 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
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
