She seems dressed in all the rings
Of past fatalities
So fragile yet so devious
She continues to see it
Climatic hands that press
Her temples and my chest
Enter the night that she came home
Forever

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

She is everything and more
The solemn hypnotic
My Dahlia, you're bathed in possession
She is on to me

I get nervous, perverse when I see her it's worse
But the stress is astounding
It's now or never she's coming home
Forever

Oh (She's the only one that makes me sad)

Hard to say what caught my attention
Vixen crazy, Aphid Attraction
Carve my name in my face, to recognize
Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

(Yeah! )

I'm a slave, and I am a master
No restraints and, unchecked collectors
I exist through my need, to self oblige
She is something in me, that I despise

I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me
I won't let this build up inside of me

(She isn't real, I can't make her real) (x4)

    The song is saying how he's in love with this made up girl, and how he hates that he can't be wth her because she isn't real, and he has to convince himself of that. The video is almost a flip of what the song says. The girl is real, but she's isolated in the world. Any time she gets just close enough to touch something, the world takes it away. That's why she's so happy with the dead butterfly or moth or whatever - its not going to leave her.

    In the video the girl is around a butterfly (or moth, considering the lyric, pheremone) it seems she isn't in a world that she recognizes, the butterfly is her friend or safety. Corey taylor, lead singer, seems to have made this girl up for his own. When he becomes so obsessed by the simple fact that he "can't make her real", he becomes distraut and angry with himself. The video is as intriguing and addictive as the song (and band). P. S. I am not a critic, just a seventh grade girl. ^_^ 12/30/08.

    This song is basically describing a fantasy that he's fallin' in love with. This woman is everything he's ever wanted, and all he needs. However, she's (obviously) not real and he has to except that. Love can suck sometimes, so why not make up a hottie to think about while you masturbate! Xd.

    Also the lines. She isn't real. Can't make her real(he is convincing himself and also ordering his mind to not make it real. Just discard the memories as a bad dream or somethin'). Guess that's it. The song is hynotic as it takes you through both the world s of his mind at the sam e time.
