    Even though I've liked it from the get-go, I do feel it's much better via headphones compared to listening in my car (despite a decent car audio setup).

    I like this lyric in particular. I can see it meaning:
    -End the pain by inserting the needle (relapsing into drugs)
    -The cylce of feeling pain, relief, pain, in life. Never being free from what haunts you.

    I listened to the song yesterday after taking a self-imposed break. Still very cool.
    I like your optopisim.

    Yes, you hear a lot more detail and quiet noises with nin + headphones. I tend to listen that way when I'm home alone.

    I love it too. I think Trent's lyrics work best when they're simple, cryptic, sparse, and, sometimes, frequently, hauntingly repeated.

    The song is such a great portrait of anxiety and addiction. Being trapped in this loop, waiting, begging for 'God' to break you out of it. The submission to the pain being the only way to alleviate it. Helplessly returning to trauma, again and again and again.

    And to me it's even more intense, and as darkly sexual, as something like "Closer."

    Some similarity with Please :

    "Push it away but it all comes back again"

    "Remove the pain and push it back in"

    I really wish someone had access to the vocals from Bowie's "I'm Deranged" so they could do a cool mashup with this track.

If I see a complicated movie and someone asks me what I think right when the credits roll, my response is often, "I have no idea yet." I have to see if I'm still thinking about it in the morning, contemplate what I think certain elements meant, and generally just get some space from it before I can really start to form an opinion. I liked the song right away, but it felt a little flat at first, whereas somewhere into the first 5-10 listens, something clicked, and I got excited.

    Hey I never said that I was enjoying it, it's just not as bad as I thought it originally was.

    I really like the music, he has always been brilliant at the instruments he plays. Not sure if I like the vocal style but I honestly love anything Trent makes. Maybe with a few more listens Ill get into the vocals too....

    I've been trying not to overplay it. Once every few days or so. Don't dislike it, quite fond of it, but can see myself enjoying it more in the context of an album. Not one I could listen to on repeat.
