  • Lyrics
  • This sweeping Rock anthem finds Nine Inch Nails at their grittiest and poppiest. Frontman Trent Reznor told UK newspaper The Sun: "I was trying to make something that leapt out of the speakers in a very unfamiliar way. At first listen, it might seem to be in praise of life but it's supposed to come off as an arrogant f--- you." I've survived. It also gets less triumphant and more reflective and melancholy towards the end."
  • Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham contributed synthesizers and backing vocals to this song. He also played the guitar on three other Hesitation Marks songs.
