I Would For You

This is the only known version. A beat loop characterised by quick double kicks opens this track, with deep bass and quiet vocals creating the first verse. Choruses open up with a simpler, clearer drum loop, a different bassline, and strange guitar layering that acts like a strings keyboard patch, creating a large stage for Reznor's loud and echoing vocals. The second chorus is followed by a new distorted guitar riff, which repeats as synth and percussion layers build; these eventually give way to a solitary piano melody, which quietly segues into "In Two" in a method recalling "Lights in the Sky" becoming "Corona Radiata" on The Slip.

Live

This song debuted live on the first night of the Tension 2013 leg of the Nine Inch Nails Live 2013 tour.

Lyrics

   What a pathetic string of words
   Just leave them lying on the floor
   The warning posted on the door
   Not over here not anymore
   There was a place that could have been
   Step over all that used to be
   Since you've invited yourself in
   Some things I'd rather you not see
   
   See I keep lying to myself
   Don't know what else there is to do
   If I could be somebody else
   Well, I think I would for you
   
   Didn't seem like something more?
   So long I can't remember when
   And this has happened all before
   And this will happen all again
   And I only have myself to blame
   And I only have myself to blame
   
   See I keep lying to myself
   Don't know what else there is to do
   If I could be somebody else
   Well, I think I would for you

In the final version of the song, the second to last line in the first verse is changed to:

 Since you have let yourself come in
