Nine Inch Nails – Right Where It Belongs lyrics

See the animal in his cage that you built?
Are you sure what side you're on?
Better not look him too closely in the eye...
Are you sure what side of the glass you're on?

See the safety of the life you have built?
Everything where it belongs...
Feel the hollowness inside of your heart
And it's all right where it belongs...

What if everything around you isn't quite what it seems?
What if all the world you think you know is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection, is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself... Find yourself afraid to see?

What if all the world's inside of your head?
Just creations of your own...
Your devils and your gods and the living and the dead
And you really are alone
You can live in this illusion
You can choose to believe
You keep looking but you can't find words
Are you hiding in the trees?

What if everything around you isn't quite what as seems?

What if all the world you used to know is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection, is that all you want to be?
What if you could look right through the cracks?
Would you find yourself... Find yourself afraid to see?

    This is a very esoteric song. About the hardest thing to do is to come to terms and face yourself and looking inside, confront your inner demons and angels. The magicians way. Know thyself. "what if you could look right through the cracks? / would you find yourself ... Find yourself afraid to see? " the way to enlightenment through self-examination. Also, references to life as an illusion is another metaphysical theme.
