Find My Way
Nine Inch Nails Lyrics


Lord my path has gone astray
I'm just tryin' to find my way
Wandered here from far away
I'm just tryin' to find my way

You were never meant to see
All those things inside of me
Now that you've gone away
I'm just tryin' to find my way
Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh (ooh)
Uh uh uh oh

I have made a great mistake
Pray The Lord my soul to take
Ghosts of who we used to be
I can feel them come for me
It looks as thought they're here to stay
I'm just tryin' to find my way

Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh (ooh)
Uh uh uh oh

Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh oh (ooh)
Uh uh uh oh

I have been to every place
I have been to everywhere
I'm just tryin' to find my way
Oh dear Lord hear my prayer

I have been to every place
I have been to everywhere
I'm just tryin' to find my way
Oh dear Lord hear my prayer

I have been to every place
I have been to everywhere
I'm just tryin' to find my way
Oh dear Lord hear my prayer

And then, at the same time, a fairly stark contrast, lyrically, to the song "Somewhat Damaged", with its (Somewhat Damaged) lines like:

"Broken, bruised, forgotten, sore. Too fucked up to care anymore. Poisoned to my rotten core. Too fucked up to care anymore."
--&--
"..lost my faith in everything."

---->To this song: "Find My Way"

From a mostly hopeless, broken, circling the drain at the bottom of the downward spiral state > to expressing a decidely still lost, but now at least openly, earnestly reaching out to be shown a way out or through. Still not a 180° change, but this is definitely not the same state of mind/being that Trent exuded almost relentlessly for at least 15-20-ish years of Nine Inch Nails albums and songs.

The album was made available in two different masters for digital download; a "standard" version and an "audiophile mastered" version, the latter of which having extended dynamic range not meant to be competitive in the loudness war.

Each version of the album has its own cover with artwork by Russell Mills whose art was previously used 19 years earlier on The Downward Spiral, its accompanying singles, and the double VHS set Closure. About the cover arts, Mills said:


"This renewed collaboration very quickly suggested massive potential for the strange and the familiar to collide and collude in works that I hoped would encapsulate, by allusion, suggestion, metaphor and association, the conceptual ideas imbued in the album as well as in the undertow of its sonic world. I've tried to make works that obliquely allude to the essence of the subject matter, to its emotional core. I hope that they will invite multiple readings."

Mills also explained that the works explore ideas of "catharsis, of being into dissolution into being, both on a personal and sociological level." Mills said that the works allude to ideas about chaos and order. He also described the artworks as a "cross between the forensic and a pathology of the personal in which only fragments remain, in which minimal clues can suggest events that may have occurred."

During the creation of the cover arts, Mills used traditional materials such as oils, acrylic paints, varnishes and wires as well as miscellaneous objects which were subject to various chemical processes, including burning, bleaching, calcification and erosion. Blood was used for standard CD cover and digital cover.
