Nine Inch Nails: Down In It

1989 music video for Down In It, with audio from the 2010 remastered edition of Pretty Hate Machine. Directed by Eric Zimmerman and Benjamin Stokes.


Kinda like a cloud I was up way up in the sky
And I was feeling some feelings you wouldn’t believe
Sometimes I can’t believe them myself and I decided I was never coming down
Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about too small to see
But I watched it way too long and that dot was pulling me down

I was up above it
Now I’m down in it

Well shut up so what what does it matter now
I was swimming in the haze now I crawl on the ground
And everything I never liked about you is kind of seeping into me
Try to laugh about it now but isn’t it funny how everything works out
“I guess the joke’s on me,” she said

I was up above it
Now I’m down in it

I used to be so big and strong
I used to know my right from wrong
I used to never be afraid
I used to be somebody
I used to have something inside
Now just this hole that’s open wide
I used to want it all
I used to be somebody

I’ll cross my heart and hope to die but the needle’s already in my eye
And all the world’s weight is on my back and I don’t even know why
And what I used to think was me is just a fading memory
I looked him right in the eye and said “goodbye”

I was up above it
Now I’m down in it
