Trent Reznor by Art-by-Jilani Trent Reznor by Art-by-Jilani
"I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of sh*t
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way."

Hurt-Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)

Thank you, I appreciate that. I too hope they tour again. Trent changes his mind a lot so it's not out of the question! :-)

I was looking for a picture by another artist and ran across this - this is based on my photograph of Trent. Perhaps you didn't realize it. Trent Reznor and Robin Finck at Worcester MA 2008-11-09

It was actually taken during Discipline, not Hurt. Although of course that doesn't mean you can't name it what you want.

Glad you notified me as I had lost the link before i uploaded the drawing.I'll credit ur picture in the description right away. i dont need to stress how awesome the reference was since it inspired me to spend several hours to recapture it with another medium. uve got some awesome photography! great NIN shots. here's hoping they go on tour again someday and forget they called it a day.
