If only I had known about this song like... three or four years ago? It's startling just how exactly the lyrics match the mindset I had during Year 11 and 12.

Though, I have no idea what philosophical mindset I really am in at the moment, so don't ask lol. :P

RIGHT WHERE IT BELONGS- NINE INCH NAILS

See the animal in his cage that you built,
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye,
Are you sure what side of the glass you are on?
See the safety of the life you have built,
Everything where it belongs.
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart,
And it's all...
Right where it belongs.

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself,
Find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head,
Just creations of your own?
Your devils and your gods,
All the living and the dead,
And you're really all alone?
You can live in this illusion,
You can choose to believe.
You keep looking but you can't find the woods,
While you're hiding in the trees.

What if everything around you,
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you used to know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself,
Find yourself afraid to see?

Yeh, I know I've been listening to NIN a lot lately, but there's good memories attached to them for me, and plus I'm so psyched for the concert this Wednesday night!! Plus, they friggin' ROCK. End of story.

'Til later, when I shall write a much more substantial/meaningful post.
