About everyday | Reviewer: batch3 | 3/5/09
this song is all about it... every day is the same... i know it because i feel the same... goes and comes, comes and goes, from home to work everyday all the same... sometimes you can think about deja vu but its just you having another mechanical day and things like that...
suicide | Reviewer: just a person | 10/8/08
I don't know what this song is actually about but I have a friend that was depressed and suicidal for about 6 months and this says nearly exactly what she described going to school as when she was depressed. Going through the routine and trying to act like everyone else and do what you are told because everyone is watching and if you act like yourself they will think you are sick again.And you just feel so lost and empty. I don't know anything about the band but I like this song and that is what it sounds like to me.
How I got to understand freedom of speech was truly dead | Reviewer: Roland Michel Tremblay | 9/6/08
I had a clear idea of what this song meant before I read other comments from people who contacted me, now I am not so sure. They mentioned a man being in an asylum, or even 1984 of George Orwell. Well, I will still share with you what my first impression was and what I felt like writing right after reading the lyrics (yes, I am insane, yes, I am suicidal, and from comments I read, I gather that this is exactly where Trent Reznor was when he wrote that song):
Do you know Nine Inch Nails? Trent Reznor? I saw them live in Brixton London last year, it was impressive. If there is one band beyond that freedom of speech bullshit, it is Nine Inch Nails.
It is so crude, it is so direct, so cathartic, there is nothing else on this planet that could give it to you just like Nine Inch Nails can. I mentioned them everywhere, in books I have written years ago and that got published in France, meaning nothing to any French reader, and yet, I felt the need to tell the whole world about NIN, as if somehow it was just an extension of myself. What I am, what I aspire to be, this is it, that cathartic.
In 2005 came that song, Every Day Is Exactly The Same, the best song NIN ever did, so deep, so significant, it signifies the death of free speech. Because, dear me, if even Trent Reznor cannot express himself, and has to use tricks to make us understand his true meaning, then, we are all lost, freedom of speech is truly dead.
I bought the CD “With Teeth” in Los Angeles, San Fernando Valley, when I was living there two years ago. I cannot believe it took me that long to finally appreciate its true significance, as it is illuminating.
When my own personal hero, tells me, that he is no longer capable of telling me what he really feels inside, what he really thinks, then, is there still a purpose to this existence?
I need an escape from reality, he is supposed to provide it for me. By being extreme, more extreme that I could ever dream to be. And now he is telling me that they got to him and that he can no longer do so. I am now left to my own fate.
A miracle! Simply a miracle that such a hidden message, could be embedded within such an album as “With Teeth”. Such a great song, their best ever, and so, you would have to pay attention. I certainly paid attention, and researched those lyrics, because frankly, I could not have figured it out from listening to the song.
It was hidden indeed, but here are the words. They are unmistakable, you cannot misunderstand this. There is no more freedom of speech in this world. Not even from Nine Inch Nails or Trent Reznor. It has really just finished me.
I just don’t know what to do, what to think. I don’t know even if I can still say anything in this world. Can I? Will you let me? Will you listen to me? Where are those threats? Will it get to threaten me as well? When, how, who?
Well, as astonishing as this can be, that Nine Inch Nails, that Trent Reznor, can no longer feel free to speak, I feel free to say whatever I want, and I certainly, will say, whatever I want!
I do not care to be shot, threaten, mishandled, or criticised. I have nothing to lose, because I am nothing. I am not an industry all unto myself. I live beyond everything, because I am so disgusted by everything, that departing this life would be welcomed.
I am electrified! That even my dearest hero can no longer speak, as freedom of speech is dead! Well, I am not dead! I will continue to speak for everyone else. I will speak whatever I want, whenever I want, until I get shot! And I don’t care! Because you have made this life such a living hell, no one in their right mind would wish to be alive in this world in the first place!
No one will threaten me. There is still a freedom of speech in this world, for as long as I live.

brilliant | Reviewer: shelby | 8/4/08
i first heard this song when i went to see the movie "Wanted" and it describes the main characters situation perfectly in the beginning of the movie, explaining how he feels about his boring, mundane life as an accountant who gets walked all over by his boss, best friend and girlfriend. I totally fell in love with it as soon as i heard it and when i realised it was NIN, it definitely made me love it more!! brilliant song, brilliant band, brilliant movie!
... | Reviewer: kryptonite6 | 7/31/08
well i think that it's about how shitty and empty can life be when it lacks purpose. we do not realize that there's nothing meaningful in it and no one else except us can really change it. give this very meaning
Too Personal | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/31/08
To me it's about all of humanity and their daily routine. How no one is persuing their dreams anymore, they just go through this daily ritual that never ends. Wake up, groom, go to work in a cubicle, go home, eat a microwave dinner, watch tv, go to bed, repeat process. No one has a life anymore, it's all work work. All work and no play makes you a Dull Boy.

(to the person below)
I think it was cocaine he was addicted to.. and booze.
But, you have given this song new meaning for me I always saw it aimed at a sickly routine and having to battle daily to be able to do what he actully wants to do: music.. or perhaps trying to get away from music and be a human... who knows eh!
lyrical genius | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/16/07
I have to say I've been a fan of Trent Reznors ever since Pretty Hate Machine, but this song conveys so much...
It may be that it was Trents feelings as a recovering heroine addict, but this song actually spans out so much further then that. I've never been a drug addict, but I can so relate to this one song. That horrible feeling that you've done something horribly wrong and the humble restart, where it really does feel as if everyone is watching you just to see if you fall down again, and you daren't do anything you might normally do. As if your trapped inside a prison of other peoples judgement.
I'll never be sure if Trent meant to say that, but thats how I hear it. Somehow he seems to take his own feelings and make them relate to so many different people. I hope, I really hope, he conitnues to do so.
greatest NIN song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/1/07
As a recovering herion addict this song touches my soul deep.Now im not exactly positive what trent was trying to convey, but I have my own interpertation.Trent is a lyrical genious and I gotta meet the man behind these great lyrics someday.
wooow hoo | Reviewer: Annie | 3/6/07
i think all the nine inch nails songs are great. and i think that they are better live also. they have by far had the best concert that i have seen. and i don't think that will change. trent is awesome and he knows what he is doing because he has been in the buisness for so long... i guess. i really don't know. i wish i knew him personally, or atleast would have met him when he was touring by me, because now i think they stopped touring, unless i'm just stupid and have no clue about what i'm talking about. anyways, off topic so i'm gunna go... "INSPIRE" myself with a few friends. :)
