(fancy guitar intro)



ONE, TWO, THREE!!!



YEAH!!!



DROP IT!!!




Bones in the water and dust in my lungs
Absorbing archaic like a sponge
The ultimate way is the way you control
But can you stay if you detach your soul
Bury the present and squeeze out the past
The ones you endear to never last
Chemical burns and the animalistic
I'm just anohter hardline psuedo-statistic


Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
AHHHH!!!!

Blood on the paper and skin on my teeth
Trying to commit to what's beneath
To find the time is to lose the momentum
You learn the lessons and immediately forget them
Automatic and out of my reach
Consult all the waste to find the key
Minimal life and the polysyllabic
I'm just another blank page - push the button, pull the rage


Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
AHHHH!!!!

I am all, but what am I?
Another number that isn't equal to any of you
I control, but I comply
Pick me apart, then pick up the pieces
I'm uneven





(drum interlude)





I am the damaged one
All my life and the damage done
I am the damaged one
All my life and the damage done
I am the damaged one
All my life and the damage done
I am the damaged one
All my life and the damage done


Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?
I'm dying to feel this
Can you feel this?


I am all, but what am I?
Another number that isn't equal to any of you
I control, but I comply
Pick me apart, then pick up the pieces
I'm uneven
I am all, but what am I?
Another number that isn't equal to any of you
I control, but I comply
Pick me apart, then pick up the pieces
I'm uneven

    It's the song of a man who wants to make a difference, as a financial adviser, but can't because his nose is too big, so no one will hire him.
    He gives up and becomes a janitor instead, and likes ice cream for lunch.

    This is a really good song to listen to if you feel like you're the only one experiencing pain, or if you feel singled out from the crowd. Slipknot's pretty good at coming up with songs that you can relate to :)

    It's about how everything that they have said in their songs does exist and is part of the band's inner workings. kinda like..i guess you could call it a song on how complacent (not caring at all) people are can be sometimes, and that as much as he tries to show himself..he still is called the same thing (chemical burns and the animalistic, i'm just another hardline pseudo-sadistic...i'm just another blank face, pushin-button pull the rage)
