Johnny Cash: HurtThis poignant per­for­mance by John­ny Cash of Hurt of Nine Inch Nail’s is almost haunt­ing, as it was record­ed just pri­or to Cash’s untime­ly death. Whether or not a John­ny Cash fan, this per­for­mance is pow­er­ful and deep with emo­tion. Pro­duced by Rick Rubin, ‘The Man Comes Around’ is the fourth and final Gram­my Award-win­ning album Cash and Rubin have col­lab­o­rat­ed on.



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
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of 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


If I could start again
a mil­lion miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way
