Bury all your secrets in my skin,
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
,
The air around me still feels like a cage,
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

So if you love me,
Let me go,
And run away before I know,
My heart is just to dark to care,
I can't destroy what isn't there,
Deliver me into my fate- if I'm alone I cannot hate,
I don't deserve to have you...
My smile was taken long ago/if I can change I hope I never know,

I still press your letters to my lips,
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss,
I couldn't face a life without your light,
But all of that was ripped apart... when you refused to fight,

So save your breath. I will not hear. I think I made it very clear,
You couldn't hate enough to love. Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you wern't my friend. Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a saint...
My hope was banished long ago/it took the death of hope to let you go,

Oohh!

So break yourself against my stones,
And spit your pity in my soul,
You never needed any help,
You sold me out to save yourself,
And I wont listen to your shame,
You ran away-you're all the same,
Angels lie to keep control...
My love was punished long ago,
If you still care don't ever let me know,
If you still care don't ever let me know...

    Slipknot is amazing don't get me wrong I love them but. I gotta say that this and probably there whole All Hope Is Gone cd is to mainstream. Only a few screaming songs and a whole buncha soft ones. Whatever happened to songs like The Heretic Anthem, Eyeless, Everything Ends, and I am Hated. I jus wish they would go back underground. And I don't mean p***y metal. I mean hard core to tha bone gangsta rap-core/horror core screaming in tha mic metal.

    I don't think there's a person out there who hasn't experienced what this song is all about and if you haven't, you haven't lived. I do miss the super hard slipknot but sometimes you just don't want to be super angry and you have to respect an artist for that. I love everything slipknot does. I only wish this song had come out sooner like almost a decade ago, because that's where I was in my life.

    Its about a guy who undoubtedly loved this girl, who did nothing but lie and hurt him, but made things seem alright. When he realized that all she did was lie and create a monstrosity of a relationship, he loved her to much to leave her, so he is asking her to leave him without him knowing so he would not be able to chase her down and try to change things. He just wanted it all to end.

    This song is the best. I love slipknot! The meaning behind this is the girl really ment a lot to him but he was hurt by a girl before and now cannot give his heart to this girl he is talking about now. He realizes she means a lot to him but he will never really be able to care for her so she leaves him and he hates himself but he can't change his ways. He doesn't care what she has to say to him because he's angry she left him and that she wouldn't stickwith him even though it's a tough situation. But he can never love her the way she wants him to love her.

    Just to go along with my last post I believe that he is also saying that he wanted to be with her so badly he didn't want to be without her, but now he has to give that up because she is not willing to do what it takes to be with him. He wishes that he could somehow make her hurt and feel it how he does but he cares for her and doesn't want to do that. The only way he can move on is to let the hope of ever being with her go. It was easier on her and her life to not open up and love and be with him so in that she sold him out to save herself.
