    I typed up and sent in a lengty "mini-article" about the two songs leaking to the access section of nin.com

    I didn't save it, but in a nutshell, I told him many fans I've talk ed to that have heard it say they want the album more than ever. Also, I basically pleaded for him not to get to upset and do something drastic, like push the release date back.

    I know he won't answer it, but what do I care.

    After much signal manipulation I toned down the music enough to hear his voice pretty clearly. Here's what I transcribed. Corrections are welcome but after a billion listens I'm sure it's 97% right.

    (Verse 1)
    There are things that I said I would never do
    There are fears that I cannot believe have come true
    For my soul is too sick and too little and too late
    And myself, I have grown to weary to hate

    (Chorus)
    The more I stay in here
    The more it's not so clear
    The more I stay in here
    The more I disappear

    As far as I have gone (I have gone)
    I knew what side I'm on
    But now I'm not so sure
    The line begins to blur

    (Verse 2)
    Isn't somebody on top of me?
    I don't know, I don't know
    Isn't anybody stopping me?
    I don't know I don't know
    Well I'm trying here to hold my world
    I don't know, I don't know
    Just ? ? ? can I go?
    I don't know, I don't know, I don't know

    (Chorus)
    As I lie here and stare
    The fabric starts to tear
    It's far beyond repair
    And I don't even care

    As far as I have gone (I have gone)
    I knew what side I'm on
    But now I'm not so sure (Not so sure)
    The line begins to blur

    I corrected them even more. I think this is 100% correct. You can tell because the words flow more with the syllables he's saying (That's how I figure out words I can't understand quite well).

    Edit: DONE! Only unsure about the one line at the beginning of the 2nd verse.

    Nine Inch Nails - The Hand That Feeds

    You're keeping in step, in the line
    Got your chin held high and you feel just fine
    'Cause you do what you're told
    But inside your hard and it's black and it's hollow and it's cold

    Just how deep do you believe?
    Will you bite the hand that feeds?
    Will you chew until it bleeds?
    Can you get up off your knees?
    Are you brave enough to see?
    Do you want to change it?

    What if this hole could change the way
    And behind it all and the price to pay
    For the right which we die
    Just to fight in the name of the holy heaven divine

    Just how deep do you believe?
    Will you bite the hand that feeds?
    Will you chew until it bleeds?
    Can you get up off your knees?
    Are you brave enough to see?
    Do you want to change it?

    So uneasy
    I've been holding on to want I want to believe
    I can see but I keep holding on
    And on and on and on

    Will you bite the hand that feeds you?
    Will you stay down on your knees?

    The Line Begins to Blur sounds amazing, I hope that in the final cut of it, the distortion isn't louder than Trent's voice though, it seemed kinda weird to have distortion louder than the vocalist. Other than that, the chorus and the end sounded sweet as hell. I just need to find The Hand That Feeds now.

    It's being said that the "The Line Begins To Blur" isn't a pre-production or demo. It's the final cut.

    Of course, I could be wrong, but I wager it sounds x1000 better on CD.

    EDIT:
    I think he says heart instead of hard. Wouldn't it make more sense for it to be..

    It seems kinda weird though, you cant really make out much of what Trent is singing. I read somewhere that Trent said he hated Pro Tools and that Perfect sound that it produced, maybe he was aiming to make this song sound odd. Im just guessing though lol.

    ...on The Downward Spiral 10th Anniversay site, the contest is for Digidesign Mbox Portable Protools.

    I know Trent is fucked up and weird, but why would he sponsor a contest by a product he hates supposedly? :p

    Anyways, I'm thinking it's just a bad rip. I'm sure it'll sound clearer on the CD. Or, since he did say the CD would sound raw, maybe that's what he meant.

    Oh my fucking god...


    These are wonderful.



    When I read the first post about them leaking, I got dizzy... :blush:



    But yeah...I prefer The Line Begins to Blur...but I'm sure they'll both sound better on CD...and like Casey I'm going to refrain from downloading the whole album...suspence is good.

    Yeah I get what you're saying :lol:

    I'll try and find what I read, cuz I read it earlier today. I'm hoping it sounds better and even if it doesn't, I hope the whole CD doesn't sound that raw.

    Over on another board, there's two theories about "The Line Begins To Blur".

    One:
    - The vocals are supposed to sound distance, because it signifies how Trent was held up in a studio for 5+ years.

    Two:
    - It is indeed not the final mix.

    Oh god, this is beautiful.

    The Hand That Feeds is wonderful...The Line Begins To Blur is taking forever...

    Why did I have to be born so impatient?

    I had heart. But the more I listened to it I just couldn't hear the T on the end so I settled with hard. I interpreted it as two things...

    "Inside you're hard, it is black it is hollow it is cold" meaning inside yourself. or...
    "Inside your heart, it is black it is hollow it is cold" which doesn't make that much sense to me with your or you're.

    Maybe it's "But inside you're hard".

    He doesn't dislike Protools. He just doesn't like that "polished" sound people use it for. Like Linkin Park. He likes to fuck things up with Protools. Look at Mr. Self Destruct, the weird, suffocating noise on Hurt, and 10 Miles High. He's supposedly an "industrial artist". That means you take things used for one purpose and switch it around to fit something else.

    To BuriedxTragedy: Trent did say it would be raw. Listen to "And All That Could Have Been". The vocals are super weird when he says "maybe I'll dissapear".

    The new songs are so awesome. It's too bad my "Hand That Feeds" is bad quality but nonetheless it sounds amazing.
