Maze... Psychopathic daze... I create this waste
Back away from tangents, on the verge of drastic
Ways... Can't escape this place... I deny your face
Sweat gets in my eyes, I think I'm slowly dying

Put me in a homemade cellar
Put me in a hole for shelter
Someone hear me please, all I see is hate
I can hardly breathe, and I can hardly take it

Hands on my face overbearing I can't get out
Hands on my face overbearing I can't...

Lost... Run at my own cost... Fearing laughter, scoffed
Running from the rush, detached from such and such
Bleak... All around me, weak... Listening, incomplete
I am not a dog, but I'm the one your dogging

I am in a buried kennel
I have never felt so final
Someone find me please, losing all reserve
I am f*****g gone, I think I'm f*****g dying

Hands on my face overbearing I can't get out
Hands on my face overbearing I can't...

You all stare, but you'll never see
There's something inside me(x3)
You all stare, but you'll never see
There's something in you I despise

Cut me - show me - enter - I am
Willing and able and never any danger to myself
Knowledge of my pain, knowledge of my pain
Or was my tolerance a phase?
Empathy, out of my way
I can't die(x4)

You all stare, but you'll never see
There's something inside me(x3)
You all stare, but you'll never see
There's something in you I despise

Despise... Despise...

Purity(x8)

Have you ever seen God? (x4)

    I love this song. One of the best Slipknot songs ever, it really is a shame that they had to remove the song from their album, it was so much better than 'Despise'.
    Ah well. In case anyone shouldn't know, this song is based on a story about a girl called Purity who was locked away in a cellar., however the author of that story made Slipknot remove the song from their album, because he said the story wasn't true, so it was his, while Corey had thought it was, in which case he would have been allowed to use it for a song.
    And now they only play that song live. Not that I do not like Slipknot live, but the studio version sounded a little better. In my opinion.
