Nine Inch Nails/Johnny Cash - Hurt Lyrics Quiz

In 1994, Nine Inch Nails released their album The Downward Spiral. The final song on that album was penned by Trent Reznor, who said of it, "I wrote some words and music in my bedroom as a way of staying sane, about a bleak and desperate place I was in, totally isolated and alone." That song became an anthem of both hopelessness and healing, and still resonates with the power of its music and lyrics to this day. In 2002 it was famously covered by the iconic Johnny Cash, and served largely as his own eulogy, as he passed away only a year after its recording. Can you recall the lyrics to the famous song?

Hurt
I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything
 
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away in the end
 
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
 
I wear this crown of shit/thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
 
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
goes away in the end
 
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
 
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
