Tonight, after 3 months of waiting it is finally here. Nine inch Nails are playing at the Metro in
I await a sea of black, black nails, black lips, black shirts and corsets, black shoes and Multi coloured hair. I await The moment of freedom were nothing matters but the screams of the crowd, the music having its way with me, pulling me toward it lost in rhythm and emotion.
why are you doing this to me?
am i not living up to what i'm supposed to be?
why am i seething with this animosity?
i think you owe me a great big apology."
Terrible Lie- Pretty Hate Machine- Nine Inch Nails-
Nine inch nails formed in 1988, when Michael "Trent" Reznor was working as a programmer and Janitor for a small recording studio, Right Track Studios in
" I beat my machine it's a part of me it's inside of me
I'm stuck in this dream it's changing me I am becoming
the me that you know had some second thoughts
he's covered with scabs and he is broken and sore
the me that you know doesn't come around much
that part of me isn't here anymore"
My connection… Believe it or not I have not always been the happy go lucky being the sits before you today. I was confused angry and scared, Nothing seemed to fit, I was being shown God on one hand, and science on the other.
Brought up in a strongly religious household, God was the answer to all problems, I couldn’t shake it, I was drawn to science I could see the proof, the evidence, I could see random patterns no design no god, Nothing could be reconciled, everything around me worked but nothing seemed to fit. Then I heard the music that helped me make sense of it all, I found solace in sounds disjointed but connected, songs that fed into each other, but seemed unrelated. The anger the pain fuel me on through high school, an escape from the bullies, from a world that didn’t accept my thoughts, my opinions, the fact I thought AFL was homo erotic display, or that chess was a sport. It was my escape and my saviour. Music never made you feel guilty for thinking a particular, it gave you freedom.
" Well I use to stand for something
But forgot what that could be
Theres a lot of me inside you
Maybe your afraid to see
Well I use to stand for something
Well I'm on my hands and knees
Turning in the god of this war
And he signs his name with a capital G"
