Versions

Underneath It All

This is the only available version. A unique track in the NIN canon, its instrumentation is unlike anything else in the band's catalog, much like its preceding track, "The Big Come Down," after which Underneath It All immediately begins with a quiet beat and scratchy synthesizer melody. These are soon built upon by a stuttering, noisy rhythm loop, on top of which Trent Reznor sings lyrics and melodies related to those of its sister track, "The Great Below." Distorted guitars and synthesizers soon enter and build to a climax, after which the final lines are sung a capella, but are distorted, equalized, and washed in delay.

Live

"Underneath It All" has never been played live.

Lyrics

    All I do
    I can still feel you
    
    Numb all through
    I can still feel you
    Hear your call
    Underneath it all
    Kill my brain
    Yet you still remain
    Crucified
    After all I've died
    After all I've tried
    You are still inside
    
    All I do
    I can still feel you
    
    You remain
    I am stained
