    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.
