Look at you, a simple man
With all the world to change
You’d think by now you’d figure out
That nothing’s gonna change

from Nine Inch Nails – Disappointed Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Many are idealistic, believing that a single action or a life spent working can change the fate of man. In all, we are but atoms, put together temporarily and destined to drift apart again. From personal life to the universe, little we do impacts this destiny. Trent realizes it, becomes hurt by the reality, and drifts on.
