The funny thing is, the song with the above lyric, Nine Inch Nails‘ 1,000,000, is just so… empowering!
That’s why I listen to NiN.
That’s why I love it.
It’s ironic, as so many of Reznor‘s tunes have that nihilistic undercurrent, but there it is.
It makes me feel like…
Raargh! I can take on the world!
Nothing can stop me now!
… and such things.
Which is handy, as I spend my days working with difficult teenagers.
