Nine Inch Nails – Lights In The Sky lyrics

She's mostly gone
Some other place
I'm getting by
In other ways
Everything they whispered in our ear
Is coming true
Try to justify the things
I used to do
Believe in you

Watching you drown
I'll follow you down
And I am here right beside you
The lights in the sky
Have finally arrived
I am staying right beside you

I tried to stay away
You know
Just in case
I've come to realize
We all have our place
Time has a way you know
To make it clear
I have my role in this
I can't disappear
Or leave you here

Watching you drown
I'll follow you down
And I am here right beside you
The lights in the sky
Are waving goodbye
I am staying right beside you

    I think this whole album is politically charged like alot of his work lately, and I believe the she Trent is talking about is America. Instead of just blaming America like he usually does for it's own downfalls, this sounds like him taking responsiblity and embracing America, even as we're spiraling out of control. I don't know exactly what the lights in the sky are however, they may be heaven, bombs, angels, I really don't know.
