10 Miles High Lyrics - Nine Inch Nails

Review The Song (2)

[Vinyl version only]

I'm getting closer, [4x]
All the time,
I'm getting closer,
All the time,
I'm getting closer, [2x]
All the time,
I'm getting closer, [5x]

I tried to get so high,
I made it 10 miles high,
I'm gonna get so high,

My nightmare's everywhere but inside, a living indication of every situation.
But it seems I've got neglected complications, hindered my salvation.
But I try, and I try, and I try...

I'm gonna get so high,
You'll never get inside,
sponsored links
I swore I'd never turn into you,
I'm closer all the time,
I made it 10 miles high,
I swore to god I would never turn into you,
I'm getting closer,
All the time.

Tear it all down.

my interpretation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/29/10

it seems to me like this song is about trying to be perfect, as defined by the world. but then you lose individuality and you realize how much you truly hate what you've become. "it seems i've neglected complications, hindered my salvation" meaning he didn't realize how many things were wrong with this idea of how wrong he defined 'perfect' was. he let other people change him. he realized that he was a better person before he even started trying to be perfect. 'im gonna get so high, you'll never get inside' meaning he's going to be so far away from who he was that no one, not even the him he created, can pry into him and change his mind,
tear it all down meaning that he's going to tear down this new version of himself so he'll stop living in the lie he created.

The percussion in the song is cool. And I love the whole theme of trying so hard to not turn into someone you hate, but in the attempt you just find yourself closer to being like them than less like them.
