Slipknot – All Hope Is Gone lyrics

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

We won't witness anymore freedom
What does anybody do 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 you cannot take it from me
If you think you can you still don't know me
Let me tell you, 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, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

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, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

The wretched are the wounded
The hungry starved to death
At a place where no-one goes
The air itself is a final breathe

So discontinue
The antiseptic cash charade
As the cry of justice comes
I'm gonna let this fire free

I am the reason your future suffers
I am the hatred you won't embrace
I am the worm of a pure distinction
I am the remedy, spit in my face

All your lies and wars are out-dated
All your subjects are dulling mind games
I can let all of another million reasons why
But doesn't matter when the only thing will never 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, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way, we'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world, we'll end the world when all hope is gone

When all hope is gone
When all hope is gone

    Ok if you read in a slipknot interview they talk about the name of the album "all hope is gone" and mick says something like "the humans fucked up and we should like wipe the earth clean and start over there beautiful shit in the world but the ugliness takes over the beauty" and since the album and the name of the song are the same then to me they mean the same thing.

    A lot of people look at this in a very negative way, and in a lot of ways, it is if you continue to try and solve your problems the same way over and over again. That said, this track is also a reflection of what slipknot is. Just when you thought you had us all figured out, give up all hope because you're never, ever going to. Besides, we like it that way! "

    Ah, blob. You make me chuckle. You tell people to stop following you around and voting you down or commenting right after you. You tell people to stop voting themselves up and leaving stupid comments. Yea. I voted myself up from time to time. But not to put myself in the lead. People actually voted mine up. I don't know why my post was so spectular, but some people must've liked it. You have over 3, 000 meanings posted. And you're broke even on meaning ratings. I can see a post of yours at -5 and then a day later it's at +5. Trust me, no one likes yours comments that much. And what's with your comment on the Katy Perry being at +10 right now? Do you know how far back that post is? It's about 100 pages back there and it's still being voted up. I don't think anyone else is that adamant about voting you up. So pot, don't call the kettle black.
    And by the way. Stop following me around and voting down all my meanings (and everyone else's for that matter) and stop making new accounts and voting all your comments up, it's kinda annoying.
    Haha. I know it won't stop, but I just had to say it. Doesn't really matter to me. Have a good one man.
