    General CommentI think this song is about suicide. The big build up, then BAM, nothing. My favorite song, period.

    General Commentpinion - to bind the arms of (shackle) or to cut the wings off (of birds)

    Intersting.

    The music video is one of the coolest things I've ever seen. There must be some very terribly dark places in Reznor's sick mind.

    General CommentI love the video:
    The camera slowly moves into a public bathroom, then down a toilet, into the pipes, flowing deeper and deeper into the sewage system, then when the music peaks we see the pipes flow into a man (who looks like he's wearing a full body scuba suit). The reason is reminds me of a scuba suit is that the pipes look like his snorkle--he is breathing in all the sewage and shit of the world.

    Absolutely brilliant.

    General CommentGoing off of "libertykillingcons" stuff, i think its kinda like he's been reduced and in Wish he wants it all back again...ur something like that. but the whole Broken Album was total middle finger to so guy. don't remember. its in the biography. but throwing that in the mix, it kinda changes things.

    General Commenti do like the video it's very interesting and alluring. very odd visuals that build up to something you probably would not have expected
