Slipknot – Scissors lyrics

I play doctor for five minutes flat
Before I cut my heart open... And let the air out
Three bugs, a pound of dust
Some wind spilled before me
In the strangest manner that had
Broke away my tear spout

As I lie there
With my tongue spread wide open
A black widow had offered me
A sweetheart tube
As I injected
The candied heart that I selected
She said don't hesitate
Just do what you have to do to me!..

It's hard to stay between the lines of skin
Just cuz I have nerves, don't mean that I can feel
I wasn't very much fun to be with anyway
Just let the blood run red cuz I can't feel!

Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time...
It's time x4

Biding (my time)
Biding (my time)
Biding (my time)


Somewhere - Inside me
Someone - Inside me
Everyone - Against me
Everyone - Beside me
Clawing away the pieces
Scratching away the excess
One more, two more
Everyone wants more
One more, two more
Everyone wants more
Inside the places that I hide from you
I want to see you
Spread before me
You - Are the only one
That I would rather see
Dead before me

You want it
You need it x4

Don't run!

I don't want you to be
I want you to die
I wanna die
I'd rather die
I wanna die
You bitch

I don't need you anymore
I don't need you

My time! X12
