I felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

I felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

Goodbye!

I wipe it off on tile, the light is brighter this time
Everything is turning blasphemy
My eyes are red and gold, the hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I can't control my shakes!
How the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong...
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this
Is it a dream or a memory?

I felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

Get outta my head 'cause I don't need this!
Why I didn't I see this?
I'm a victim - Manchurian Candidate
I - have - sinned - by - just
Makin' my mind up and takin' your breath away

I felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

I felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

Goodbye!

You haven't learned a thing
I haven't changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free

You haven't learned a thing
I haven't changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free

I've felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

I've felt the hate rise up in me...
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves...
I wander out where you can't see...
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...

And it waits for you!

    Hellz yeah slipknot will never fail! They always do an amazing job with each piece of music, in fact, music shouldn't even be the word used. It should be "Slipknot Kicking Ass Again" or something like that.
    Anyways I'm pretty sure we already know how kick-a* slipknot are,
    so I was thinkin that this song could be about someone who is bleeding heavily but doesn't do shiz about it cus they think they are in a dream. I dunno feel free to correct.

    I think this song is about someone who was just pushed too far and ended up killing whoever it was that sent him over the edge. "I feel the hate rise up in me...kneel down and clear the stone of leaves..." That says he killed them and is now visiting their grave. Maybe he regrets it? But I also like the idea of the suicidal kid in the tub with the slit wrist.
