An Empire of Dirt

I am intrigued by this video and why it is that Cash would cover it. Listen to the lyrics and watch the video and tell me what you think. What message is he conveying with this song? Though Nine Inch Nails and Cash sing the same lyrics, it seems that Cash is trying to convey something more with the medium of his video. Juxtaposing the two, you see (I think) different messages. You tell me. You can watch the NIN video version here if you are interested. If not, still watch the Cash version below.
