SLIPKNOT (1999)

(SIC)

Enemy
Show me what you wanna be
I can handle anything
Even if I can’t handle you
Readily
Either way it better be
Don’t you fuckin’ pity me
Get up, get off…
What the hell am I sayin’?
I don’t know about malevolent
Sure as hell decadent
I want somebody to step up, step off
Walls! Let me fall! Fuck you all!
Get a grip, don’t let me slip ’til I drop the ball

I – I want it all!
Fuck this shit, I’m sick of it
You’re goin’ down, this is a war!

Who the fuck am I to criticize your twisted state of mind?
You’re leavin’ me suspect, I’m leavin’ you grotesque
Feels like a burn from which you never learn
Cause and effect, you jealous ass
Press your face against the glass – suffer

I want it all!
Fuck this shit, I’m sick of it
You’re goin’ down, this is a war!
I’ve just begun
It’s about that time
Gotta get mine

You can’t kill me
Cuz I’m already inside you

Sick

EYELESS

Insane – Am I the only muthafucker with a brain?
I’m hearing voices but all they do is complain
How many times have you wanted to kill
Everything and everyone – Say you’ll do it but never will

You can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes

I am my Father’s son
He’s a phantom, a mystery and that leaves me
Nothing!
How many times have you wanted to die?
It’s too late for me. All you have to do is get rid of me!

You can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes

It’s all in your head
It’s all in my head
It’s all in your head

I tried – You lied to me for so long
Everywhere I go, there’s a sense of it
Freak on my antics and give me a choice
Doesn’t matter if I give a shit
It’s shit that you gave me

You can’t see California without Marlon Brando’s eyes

It’s all in your head
It’s all in my head
It’s all in your head

Do you wanna feel pain? Takin’ my name in vain
Caring never felt so lame inside
Anybody else got pride? Do you wanna take my life?
Maybe I’ll reverse my ride
Who the hell are you? Fuck you!
Better suck it up cuz you bled through
Better get away from me
Stay the fuck away from me!

I feel safe – Seems your saved

Look me in my brand new eye

WAIT AND BLEED

I’ve felt the air rise up in me…
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves…
I wander over where you can’t see…
Inside my shell I wait and bleed…

Goodbye!

I wipe it off on tile, the light is brighter this time
Everything is 3D blasphemy
My eyes are red and gold, the hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I can’t control my shakes
How the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong…
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn’t like this
Is it a dream or a memory?

I’ve felt the air rise up in me…
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves…
I wander over where you can’t see…
Inside my shell I wait and bleed…

Get outta my head cause I don’t need this
Why I didn’t I see this?
Well I’m a victim – Manchurian candidate
I have sinned by just
Makin’ my mind up and takin’ your breath away

[2x]
I’ve felt the air rise up in me…
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves…
I wander over where you can’t see…
Inside my shell I wait and bleed…

Goodbye!

You haven’t learned a thing
I haven’t changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free

[2x]
I’ve felt the air rise up in me…
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves…
I wander over where you can’t see…
Inside my shell I wait and bleed…

And it waits for you!

SURFACING

Running out of ways to run
I can’t see, I can’t be
Over and over and under my skin
All this attention is doing me in!

Fuck it all! Fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don’t belong! Don’t exist!
Don’t give a shit!
Don’t ever judge me!

Picking through the parts exposed
Taking shape, taking shag
Over and over and under my skin
All this momentum is doing me in!

Fuck it all! Fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don’t belong! Don’t exist!
Don’t give a shit!
Don’t ever judge me!

You got all my love, livin’ in your own hate
Drippin’ hole man, hard step, no fate
Show you nuthin’, but I ain’t holdin’ back
Every damn word I say is a sneak attack
When I get my hands on you
Ain’t a fuck thing you can do
Get this cuz you’re never gonna get me
I am the very disease you pretend to be

I am the push that makes you move

 

SPIT IT OUT

Since you never gave a damn in the first place
Maybe it’s time you had the tables turned
Cuz in the interest of all involved I got the problem solved
And the verdict is guilty…

…Man nearly killed me
Steppin’ where you fear to tread
Stop, drop and roll – you were dead from the git-go!!
Big mouth fucker, stupid cocksucker!
Are you scared of me now? Then you’re dumber than I thought
Always is, never was
Foundation made of piss and vinegar
Step to me, I’ll smear ya – Think I fear ya? bullshit!
Just another dumb punk chompin’ at this tit
Is there any way to break through the noise?
Was it something that I said that got you bent?
It’s gotta be that way if you want it
Sanity, Literal Profanity hit me!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Maybe it’s the way you spread a lotta rumour fodder
Keepin’ all your little spies and leavin’ when you realise
Step up, fairy
I guess it’s time to bury your ass with the chrome
Straight to the dome
You heard that right, bitch, I didn’t stutter
If you know what’s good – sit, shut up and beg, brother
Backstab – Don’t you know who you’re dissin’?
Side swipe – we know the ass that you’re kissin’!
Bigidy – bigidy bitch boy, halfwat hauser
Can’t hear shit cuz I keep gettin’ louder
Step up, and you get a face full o’ tactic
Lippin’ off hard, goin’ home in a basket
You got no pull, no power, no nuthin’
Now you start shit? Well, ain’t that somethin’?
Payoffs don’t protect, and you can’t hide if you want
But I’ll find you – Comin’ up behind you!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

‘Bout time I set this record straight
All the needlenose punchin’ is makin’ me irate
Sick o’ my bitchin’ fallin’ on deaf ears
Where YOU gonna be in the next five years?
The crew and all the fools, and all the politix
Get your lips ready, gonna gag, gonna make you sick
You got dick when they passed out the good stuff
Bam
Are you sick of me? Good enough – had enough

Fuck me! I’m all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I’m all out of enemas!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

IOWA (2001)

PEOPLE = SHIT

Here we go again motherfucker

Come on down and see the idiot right here
too fucked to beg and not afraid to care
Whats the matter with calamity anyways?
right? get the fuck out of my face
understand I cant feel anything
it isn’t like I wanna sift through the decay
I feel like a wound
and like I got a fucking gun against my head
you live when I’m dead

One more time motherfucker

Everybody hates me now so fuck it
blood’s on my face and my hands don’t know why,I’m not afraid to cry
but that’s none of your business
Whose life is it? Get it? see it? feel it? eat it? spin it around
so I can spit in his face
I wanna leave without a trace
get out, I don’t want to die in this place

people=shit
people=shit (what you gonna do)
people=shit ( cuz I’m not afraid of you)
people=shit (I’m everything you’ll never be)
people=shit

It never stops

Contagion I’m sittin on the side of satan
what do you want from me?
They never told me the failure I was meant to be
Overdo it, don’t tell me you blew it, stop your bitchin’
and fight your way through it
I’m not like you
I just fuck up

c’mon mother fucker everybody has to die
c’mon mother fucker everybody has to die !!

people=shit
people=shit (what you gonna do)
people=shit ( cuz I’m not afraid of you)
people=shit (I’m everything you’ll never be)
people=shit

THE HERETIC ANTHEM

8…7…6…6…6…5…4…3…2…1…

I’m a pop star threat and I’m not dead yet
Got a super dred bet with an angel drug head
Like a dead beat winner. I want to be a sinner
An idolized bang for the industry killer.
A hideous man that you don’t understand
Throw a suicide party and I’m guaranteed to fucking snap.
It’s evilsonic, It’s pornoholic.
Breakdowns, Obscenities, It’s all I wanna be.

If You’re 555 then I’m 666.
If you’re 555 I’m 666.
If you’re 555 then I’m 666 (what’s it like to be a heretic)
If you’re 555 I’m 666. (what’s it like to be a heretic)

Everybody’s so infatuated
Everybody’s so completely sure of what we are
Everybody defamates from miles away
But face to face, they haven’t got a thing to say
I bleed for this and I bleed for you
Still you look in my face like I’m sombody new
TOY – Nobody wants anything I’ve got
Which if fine becuase you’re made of
Everything – I’m – NOT!

If You’re 555 then I’m 666.
If you’re 555 I’m 666.
If you’re 555 then I’m 666 (what’s it like to be a heretic)
If you’re 555 I’m 666. (what’s it like to be a heretic)
30 Seconds, 16, 8, 4, lemme tell you why

I haven’t the slightest, I’m teaching your brightest
They’re listening, clamoring
All the money in the world can’t buy me.
GO AHEAD. LIE TO ME.
Tell me again how you’re tortured
I wanna know how you followed your orders so well
You’re full of SHIT
You had a dream but this ain’t it.

If You’re 555 then I’m 666.
If you’re 555 I’m 666.
If you’re 555 then I’m 666 (what’s it like to be a heretic)
If you’re 555 I’m 666. (what’s it like to be a heretic)

LEFT BEHIND

I’ve known faces that have disapeared in time
Find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime
All My friends have pictures made to make you cry
I’ve seen this and wondered what I’ve done to calcify

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

I can’t stand to see your thalidomide robot face
Don’t even try it! You had to be a liar just to
infiltrate me – I’m still drowing

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, i feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

…Take…this…away…
I can feel it on my mouth
I can taste you on my fingers
I can hear you like the holy ghost
And kill you if you get to close

 

VOL 3: (THE SUBLIMINAL VERSES) (2004)

DUALITY

I push my fingers into my eyes…
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache…
But it’s made of all the things I have to take…
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside…
If the pain goes on…
Aaaaaaaah!

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I’ve waited as my time’s elapsed
Now, all I do is live with so much hate
I’ve wished for this, I’ve bitched at that
I’ve left behind this little fact:
You cannot kill what you did not create
I’ve gotta say what I’ve gotta say
And then I swear I’ll go away
But I can’t promise you’ll enjoy the noise
I guess I’ll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You’re left with me ’cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
If the pain goes on,
I’m not gonna make it!

Put me back together
Or separate the skin from bone
Leave me all the Pieces, then you can leave me alone
Tell me the reality is better than the dream
But I found out the hard way,
Nothing is what it seems!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside
If the pain goes on,
I’m not gonna make it!

All I’ve got…all I’ve got is insane…
All I’ve got…all I’ve got is insane…
All I’ve got…all I’ve got is insane!
All I’ve got…all I’ve got is insane!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside
If the pain goes on,
I’m not gonna make it!

 

VERMILLION

She seems dressed in all the rings
Of past fatalities
So fragile yet so devious
She continues to see it
Climatic hands that press
Her temples and my chest
Enter the night that she came home
Forever

Oh (She’s the only one that makes me sad)

She is everything and more
The solemn hypnotic
My Dahlia bathed in possession
She is home to me

I get nervous, perverse, when I see her it’s worse
But the stress is astounding
It’s now or never she’s coming home
Forever

Oh (She’s the only one that makes me sad)

Hard to say what caught my attention
Fixed And crazy, Aphid Attraction
Carve my name in my face, to recognize
Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me

(Yeah!)

I’m a slave, and I am a master
No restraints and, unchecked collectors
I exist through my need, to self oblige
She is something in me, that I despise

I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me

I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me

SHE ISN’T REAL!
I CAN’T MAKE HER REAL!
SHE ISN’T REAL!
I CAN’T MAKE HER REAL!

(She isn’t real, I can’t make her real)
(She isn’t real, I can’t make her real)

BEFORE I FORGET

Go!

Stapled shut, inside an outside world and I’m
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I’m
Catastrophic, not again
I’m smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I’m the one who’s obscene
Catch me up on all your sordid little insurrections,
I’ve got no time to lose, and I’m just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the strings
Throw the shapes
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I’m ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I’m
I wear you like a stitch, yet I’m the one who’s hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
I’ve got no right to win, I’m just caught up in all the battles

Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

My end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road and my end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
THE END OF THE ROAD!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
BEFORE I FORGET THAT!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, OH!

VERMILLION PT 2

She seemed dressed in all of me, stretched across my shame.
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I’d do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do when she makes me sad.

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable, she’s a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason
I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what to do when she makes me sad.

But I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me

A catch in my throat choke
Torn into pieces
I won’t, no!
I don’t wanna be this…

But I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me
I won’t let this build up inside of me

She isn’t real
I can’t make her real
She isn’t real
I can’t make her real

 

ALL HOPE IS GONE (2008)

SULFUR

My Guilt and My Shame always sell me short – always feel the same
And My Face and My Soul always wear me thin – always under control
But the longest hours you’ll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you’re right
So I’ll wait, but I pray that I’m wrong
Because I think I know what’s going on

So Let Me Get This Straight… the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I’m gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I’m not a failure, but I know what it’s like
I can take it or leave it… or die

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

My Life is undone – and I’m a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are Untrue – I’m probably wrong, but I’m better than you
And the longest hours I’ve had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I’m safe, but I’m a little outside
I’m gonna laugh when I’m buried alive

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR

PSYCHOSOCIAL

I did my time and I want out
So effusive – fade – it doesn’t cut
The soul is not so vibrant
The reckoning, the sickening
Packaging subversion
Pseudo sacrosanct perversion
Go drill your deserts, go dig your graves
Then fill your mouth with all the money you will save
Sinking in, getting smaller again
I’m done! It has begun! I’m not the only one!

[Chorus:]
And the reign will kill us all…
Throw ourselves against the wall
But no one else can see
The preservation of the martyr in me

Psychosocial! [6x]

There are cracks in the road we laid
But where the temple fell
The secrets have gone mad
This is nothing new, but when we killed it all
The hate was all we had
Who needs another mess?
We could start over
Just look me in the eyes and say I’m wrong
Now there’s only emptiness
Venomous, insipid
I think we’re done. I’m not the only one!

[Chorus]

Psychosocial! [6x]

THE LIMITS OF THE DEAD! [4x]

Fake anti-fascist lie – (psychosocial!)
I tried to tell you but – (psychosocial!)
Your purple hearts are giving out – (psychosocial!)
Can’t stop a killing idea – (psychosocial!)
If it’s hunting season – (psychosocial!)
Is this what you want? – (psychosocial!)
I’m not the only one!

[Chorus x2]

The limits of the dead… [2x]

 

DEAD MEMORIES

Sitting in the dark, I can’t forget.
Even now, I realize the time I’ll never get.
Another story of the Bitter Pills of Fate.
I can’t go back again. I can’t go back again…
But you asked me to love you and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit

And when I got away, I only got so far. The Other Me Is Dead.
I hear his voice inside my head…
We were never alive, and we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
You told me to love you and I did. Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit.

So when I got away, I only kept my scars. The Other Me Is Gone.
Now I don’t know where I belong…
We were never alive, and we won’t be born again.
But I’ll never survive with Dead Memories in my heart.
Dead Visions in your Name.
Dead Fingers in my Veins.
Dead Memories in my Heart

WHEREIN LIES CONTINUES

THOU SHALT NOT
Kill your Fathers – Destroy another Life
Question everything we clung to for years
Live Forever – Design a Better Death
Confuse a liar with a savior from fear
Create a Myth and Separate the Chosen Ones
Adolescent Independence / Dominion
I only wanna believe in fuckin’ anything
But now my conscience is contradicting everything

THE ENDING’S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR…

Tell your Mothers they have no Sons or Daughters
Blame yourselves because your Children are Mine
We are Orphans, but we are not Forgotten
And we will find a way to save us this time
We can run, but we are tired of running
We’re dropping seconds in a glass ’til we die
We only wanna believe in fuckin’ everything
But we’re alive and we’re not accepting anything

THE ENDING’S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR… ANNIHILATION

I won’t control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES

I will never become another piece
Inside the Paralytic Construct I hate
Live Forever? Well, I would rather die
At least I’d know I wasn’t theirs to create
This is yours, but you had better choose
Before they take away your right to decide
I guess I’ll never believe in fuckin’ anything
But my solace is I CAN HANDLE EVERYTHING

THE ENDING’S THE SAME / THE WORLD WILL NOT CHANGE
THE ANSWER IS CLEAR… OBLITERATION

I won’t control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER
I won’t control or restrain things I do not understand
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER
They gave to me now I give to you the means to burn the thoughts I had
Now I realize I’m STRONGER BETTER
MORE

WE HAVE TO SAVE OURSELVES

SNUFF

The state of the nation – violation!
A broken promise is as good as a lie.
The hell is humongous, the devil’s among us
and we will burn because we won’t unite!

What are we conceding for our freedom?
Why does anybody think we need ’em
I would rather fight,
than let another die.
We’re the problem,
but we’re also the solution.
ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

If you want it come and take it from me.
If you think you can, you still don’t know me.
Let me tell you, man, when I said it, I meant it
and I will always have the right to defend it.

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders.
The bill of rights is a bill of sale.
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your system fails!?

We have made the present obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We’ll find a way,
When all hope is gone!

We’ve seen the fall of the elite,
Bury your life, take your disease
We’ll end the world,
When all hope is gone!

The wretched are the wounded,
The hungry starve to death,
In a place where no one goes,
The air itself is a final breath,
So discontinue, the anti-septic, care charade,
As a cry of justice comes,
A malignant fire fades.

I am the reason your future suffers,
I am the hatred you won’t embrace
I am the worm of a pure gestation,
I am the remedy, spit in my face.
All your laws and rules are outdated,
All your subjects are killing the kings,
I can rattle off a million other reasons why,
But does it matter when the only thing we love will die?

We have made the present obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We’ll find a way,
When all hope is gone!

We’ve seen the fall of the elite,
Bury your life, take your disease
We’ll end the world,
When all hope is gone!
WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!

WHEN ALL HOPE IS GONE!!!
