"The Idea of You" as written by and Atticus Ross Trent Reznor....
Maybe that was somebody else
Maybe, I was somebody else
I'm somebody, for what that's worth, if that means anything anymore
I think there's something just wrong with me
I have been wondering, when did you know?
You know, really know?
No no no no, I don't think that's going to happen here
You missed all that on the way out
Remember, I don't want to remember anymore
Maybe I was somebody else?
Just go back to the idea of me
Just go back to the idea of me
Just go back to the idea of me
Just

(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Breathe) None of this
(Believe) Is happening
(Hey) None of this
(You tell yourself) Is happening

Oh and
If I start to tell you anything, please don't pay attention
That's not really me in there, I would never do that
Just go back to the idea of me
Go back to that idea
Can you even hear me over here?
Everything absorbing liquid twitching forming something terrible
The sores are gone
And you can hardly tell now but
There was someone else who isn't here anymore

(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Breathe) None of this
(Believe) Is happening
(Hey) None of this
(You tell yourself) Is happening

(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Breathe) None of this
(Believe) Is happening
(Hey) None of this
(You tell yourself) Is happening

(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Breathe) None of this
(Believe) Is happening
(Hey) None of this
(You tell yourself) Is happening

(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Wait) None of this
(Wake) Is happening
(Breathe) None of this
(Believe) Is happening
(Hey) None of this
(You tell yourself) Is happening
(Wait)
(You tell yourself)

Hey, wait, can you hear? (Can you hear?)
It gets (it gets) so lonely in here
Hey, wait, can you hear?
It gets (it gets) so lonely in here
