"Dear World" as written by and Atticus Ross Trent Reznor....
Yes, everyone seems to be asleep

Hey look, you didn't even know this
Couldn't even tell
Just when it started, happening
Maybe just as well
After all, everything is getting unfamiliar now
Trajectory in decline
And we've become obselete
A frame at a time

I'm locked inside here
Have to stay
With people who aren't here
All the way

Pictures and faces
On display
With people who aren't here
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)

And you didn't even notice, yeah you didn't even notice (you were missing)
And you didn't even notice, yeah you didn't even notice (you were missing)
And you didn't even notice, yeah you didn't even notice (you were missing)
And you didn't even notice

Dear world, I can hardly recognise you anymore (I am leaving because I can't recognise who I have been)
And yet I remain certain there is an answer in you
I feel like I have lived so long (it's happening)
Sometimes run out of things to try to do (without me you didn't even notice)
Of course it's been happening all along (I can't concentrate my way out)
Permanent intervals as you become obsolete (What about?)
I begin to go through another of that we have been (who are you?)
Oh, this place (I have been entirely patient) (I can't concentrate)
But I know I can't trust myself with this again (no, no, not this time)

I'm locked inside here
Have to stay
With people who aren't here
All the way

Pictures and faces
On display
With people who aren't here
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way (all the way)
All the way
All the way

Yes, everyone seems to be asleep
