Send Ringtones to Cell

he sewed his eyes shut because he is afraid to see
he tries to tell me what i put inside of me
he's got the answers to ease my curiosity
he dreamed up a god and called it christianity

    @TylerSymes There is a difference between "I hate god" and "I don't believe in god." I think a lot of people who would listen to NIN would probably just choose not to believe.

    While i heavily disagree with the lyrics, a kickass song nonetheless.

    I'm shocked most of the shouts aren't I hate god.

    I really like this song, how it questions the way of the world… honestly, listening to it is just so life affirming.

    This song alone was why I wanted Adrian Belew to tour with NIN this year. Such otherwordly guitar. It would have been amazing.

    I'm pretty sure the album gets good at Mr. Self Destruct [2] but this track really stands out. unfortunately for it, next up are March of the Pigs and Closer. and Ruiner. and The Becoming. and... OK, whole album is fucking amazing.
