Slipknot – Don't Get Close lyrics

Come On!

Somebody give me some light
And not punch it in the dark
Somebody show me the end
And I try to push to start

I'm trying to figure out
A better way, a better answer
But I keep finding all the problems
I've been looking after

You can't wander through the world
With nothing but a smile
I'll take your tongue for words
And use it to instill denial

Don't get close!
You don't know me and you'll never know
Chivalry!
Will get you somewhere
Rivalry!
Will take you there

Maybe I should look away
Before I ruin this
Maybe I should pick the time
Before I pick the place

I'm into all the things that emulate then penalize
But I don't want to go until you learn to finalize

Don't get close!
You don't know me and you'll never know
Chivalry!
Will get you somewhere
Rivalry!
Will take you there

You ascertain the plot
My vision's all but shot
I have the best confession
Always scarred for all the lessons
For the quaints and the same time used
Stay out and be infused
I didn't want to be
The undeniable souls of envy

Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]

I see what's in all the conflicts
Constrict just to fit in, squeeze in,
I can insist, closed fist
Remember?!
Remember?!

You take the breath of life
It never made much sense
I have the worst possession
What I won't put soul in session

Old man and be abused
Because this is so confused
I only want to be
Left alone and rot away

Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
Don't get close! [Better stay away!]
