    You're quite literally projecting. You think because you feel similarly about whatever, he got there the same way you did.

    I only deeply relate to a few people in this world.

    In other words, I understand/get a lot of people, yet I actually identify myself with a limited few.

    It takes one to know one.

    Trent Reznor is one of these select few. Charles Bukowski and Ani DiFranco also being part of this crew.

    Not to say that's true at all, but Nocaps is ENTP and he thinks Reznor is ENTP.

    The idea that you can classify someone's personality on one aspect of his or her being, in this case music, is pushing the envelope.

    Reznor's complicated because the only real avenue we have into his psyche via biography .... and Nine inch nails lyrics are VERY ambiguous and cryptic. I remember reading the reviews for Capital G "being political" because it was about Bush..... Lol ! Wrong G, dudes!

    I still think no one really gets Reznor's work. The lyrics of nine inch nails are essentially a dialogue over time of a philosophical skeptic, who is bitter and angrily rejecting the Judeo-Christian God, slowing becoming a kind of intellectual pascifist that is accepting of "needed" concepts like salvation, but ends up leaving the being empty and shallow. The change in mental energy from "downward spiral" to recent works isn't Reznor "mellowing out", it's a part of the whole "Now I'm Nothing" transition.

    All The Love In The World - NinWiki - Your source for information on Nine Inch Nails, Nine Inch Nails The Slip, and NIN

    All The Love In The World:

    Watching all the insects march along
    Seem to know just right where they belong
    Smears of face reflecting in the chrome
    Hiding in the crowd I'm all alone
    No one's heard a single word I've said
    They don't sound as good outside my head
    Looks as though the past is here to stay
    I've become a million miles a-

    Why do you get all the love in the world?

    All the jagged edges disappear
    Colors all look brighter when you're near
    The stars are all afire in the sky
    Sometimes I get so lonely I could

    Why do you get all the love in the world?
    Additional lyrics printed in the With Teeth PDF booklet, but not appearing in the song itself

    Why am I always watching from the outside?
    On the other side of the glass
    Behind the glass.
    Always watching everyone,
    Separate, watching, always
    Don't touch.
    This is getting deeper
    As time goes by,
    The water's getting colder.
    Here I am surrounded by people but still all alone,
    I am always alone.
    Even with myself,
    Imprisoned in my head.
    And there doesn't seem to be any way out,
    And I am so fucking sick of here,
    Wish I was there.
    Right beside is still
    A million miles away.
    Behind these bars.
    In a rut.
    Anyplace else will do.
    Hello?
    Don't think so.
    Broadcasting,
    Only static coming in.
    No one can hear me when I'm here.
    I just came across these unsung lyrics for the first time, tonight, (All the Love in the World is one of my favorite NIN songs), and I am floored...

    I have to run an errand, but I will post my analysis of these lyrics when I get back.

    Gawd, Trent Reznor....

    They're lyrics. Do you expect him to write songs about systems analysis?

    You can't type people from such a specialized task as songwriting. Period. If you could do that, you could call anyone who got an A on a math test T.
