Day 28 was a hard choice. I originally wanted to use Ringfinger, but all the video’s I could find are from live performances during the early 90’s and very poor quality. Of course, there’s the entire album, Pretty Hate Machine, but an entire album doesn’t have a video. Then, there are songs that don’t have videos so I found myself in a predicament.

After much deliberation, and discarding the idea to post every NIN song ever recorded, I decided to do a double shot. You can find both songs on the NIN release, Still.

The first song, Something I Can Never Have, can be whiny but this live studio version is gut wrenching. It’s the perfect song to wallow to after a break up. Trent Reznor gets it. And, sometimes, knowing you’re not alone is all you need.

 

I still recall the taste of your tears.
Echoing your voice just like the ringing in my ears.
My favorite dreams of you still wash ashore.
Scraping through my head ’till I don’t want to sleep anymore.

 

 

The second NIN song isn’t as well known. This is the song I want someone to write about me. (Yes I understand that’s a tad on the crazy side but I’ve been posting love sucks songs all month so why are you surprised!)

I’m going to post the lyrics in their entirety for this one. Trent killed me dead the first time I heard this. Here is good fan made video. Go download this song. NOW!

 

Breeze still carries the sound
Maybe I’ll disappear
Tracks will fade in the snow
You won’t find me here

Ice is starting to form
Ending what had begun
I am locked in my head
With what I’ve done
I know you tried to rescue me
Didn’t let anyone get in
Left with a trace of all that was
And all that could have been

Please
Take this
And run far away
Far away from me
I am
Tainted
The two of us
Were never meant to be
All these
Pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my
Nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me

Gone fading everything
And all that could have been
Could have?

Please
Take this
And run far away
Far as you can see
I am
Tainted
And happiness and peace of mind
Were never meant for me
All these
Pieces
And promises and left behinds
If only I could see
In my
Nothing
You meant everything
Everything to me
