song written by Trent Reznor:
-------------------------
-------------------
"Hurt" is the final track on The Downward Spiral.
The idea of the narrator being or feeling "a million miles away," as sung at the end of this song, would be mentioned again in both "All The Love In The World" and "1,000,000." Whether the three songs are all specifically related beyond repetition of the phrase is publicly unverified.
The meaning of this song is entirely debatable. Some may interpret this as a depressing suicide note, while others may find it to describe someone finding a new lease on life.
It should be noted that the lyric "A million miles away" is referenced in both the songs 1,000,000 and All The Love in the World, and the suicidal themes surrounding the songs, especially "1,000,000," may indicate a connection.

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feeling disappears
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Doesn't get recognition it deserves...

Really well done. People most likely havn't heard the original and would judge that you don't know how to keep notes in the same keys. But, that's the original way it was made. Nicely done. I was hoping to hear the metal guitar in there but it's still a great piece of work.

Thanks, I really appreciate that. I wanted to distance this one from Mr. Cash's wonderful rendition while keeping true to the original (but in my own way). Either way, I'm glad that you thought so highly of my version.
