The Frail - Nine Inch Nails

She shines
in a world full of ugliness.
She matters
when everything is meaningless.

Fragile, she doesn't see her beauty.
She tries to get away.
Sometimes, it's just that nothing seems worth saving.
I can't watch her slip away.

I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.

She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by,
hoping someone can see.
If I could fix myself I'd - but it's too late for me.

I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.
I won't let you fall apart.

We'll find the perfect place to go where we can run and hide.
I'll build a wall and we can keep them on the other side.
...but they keep waiting...
...and picking...
...and picking...
...and picking...
...and picking...
...and picking...
...and picking...
...and picking...

It's something I have to do.
I was there, too,
before everything else,
I was like you
