When Trent Reznor wrote the song Hurt did he affiliate the song with his own life?

In the lyrics it said, "Needle tears a hole....the old familiar sting...You can have it all...my empire of dust...I will let you down...I will make you hurt."

Then at the end of the song his lyrics said,

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

So naturally the question rises did the reflection of the lyricist's life reflected on this song or did he write about someone else or it's just a fictional song? Who wrote the song Hurt?
