She seemed dressed in all of me,
Stretched across my shame
All the torment and the pain,
Leaped through and covered me

I'd do anything to have her to myself,
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do,
Don't know what to do
When She Makes Me Sad

She is everything to me,
That unrequited dream
The song that no one sings,
The unattainable

She's a myth that I have to believe in,
All I need to make it real is one more reason
I don't know what to do,
I don't know what to do
When she makes me Sad

But 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

A catch in my throat,
Choke
Torn into pieces,
I won't
No,
I don't want to be this

But I won't let this build up inside of me,
I won't let this build up inside of me,
(Won't let this build up inside of me)
I won't let this build up inside of me
(Wont let this build up inside of me)
I wont let this build up inside of me
(Wont let this build up inside of me)

Won't let this build up inside of me, Won't let this build up inside me
(She isn't real)
Won't let this build up inside of me,
(I can't make her real)
Won't let this build up inside of me,
(She isn't real)
Won't let this build up inside of me,
(I can't make her real)
Won't let this build up inside of me.

    Metalhead66 is right, its about a girl(or a demon) who wants to possess corey taylor for the demons to use him as an instrument against human kind and spread the word about satan. only people with dark minds and a brutal heart can understand the songs of Slipknot.. im an eight grader and i know very well about things that aren't meant to be known.

    Vermilion Pt. 2" is a haunting continuation of the "Vermilion" story, complete with acoustic guitar, violin and singer Corey Taylor's pained, vulnerable delivery. The melody and the overriding theme run through both versions, making them integral pieces to the same complex puzzle. "The differences (between the two tracks) are subtle — 'Vermilion Pt. 1' is about the enrapturing, the buildup, the anticipation and the neurosis," says Taylor. "'Part 2' is the aftermath, the pieces that have to be picked up later, and maybe the guilt of having lived through it."
