The Four of Us Are Dying (4:36)

Cover of The Slip

From The Slip and 1 other release

“The Four of Us Are Dying” is the ninth track on the Nine Inch Nails album The Slip. It is an instrumental. The “four” of the title may be a reference to the four members of this album’s incarnation of Nine Inch Nails: Trent Reznor, Josh Freese, Robin Finck and Alessandro Cortini, although it could also refer to an episode of The Twilight Zone which shares its name. This episode centers upon a man who can change his face.

The artwork shows what first appears to be four hexagons with lines through them, like four synchronised clocks beside one another. However, when viewed differently, they can be seen as four empty boxes lying side by side; like coffins, or four faces looking to the right. It is also the third artwork not to have a red line, the first two being “1,000,000 ” and “Lights in the Sky”.
