  • This song is about a person who has mixed feelings about his or her mate. This person has this obsession over this person that probably involves jealousy. They hate to love and love to hate one another. >>

  • Ele from New York NyThis song is about the Old Testament God.
  • Zack from Noblesville, InI see that is the way I am right now. This a Badass Song.
  • Jd from Paoli, InThis song is the s--t. When i first heard it i was like blah and i had to play vermillion but when it switches from screaming to a light chorus it is so awesome. No doubt this song is about obsession and how much you have lost control of your life. Corey taylor joey jordison mick thompson all the nine i love you guys. LONG LIVE MAGGOTS
  • Michel from Bakersfield,blah blah blah
    you guys talk to much
    this ones cool but it annoys me when you say "I think the song is about"
  • Jerimias from Nuuk, GreenlandThis song rocks!
    I'm always having "love-issues" and this one really makes me feel better.
    Stay Sic!
  • Jackson from Nottingham, EnglandThis song to me is like a continuation
    of purity, except it's told from the point
    of view of the kidnapper. Best song on
    subliminal verses along with before i forget
    and the blister exists.
  • Frances from Fpo, ItalyThese are some interesting predictions, but i always thought it was about a dudette he loved, and then raped. Mostly from the "The only thing I ever really loved was hurting you," and the "Stay inside the hole/Let me take control/You were nothing more/You were something less/Something has to give/Something has to break," (I think you can guess what that would be," "Fingers on your skin/Let my savage in" Posiibly the "You deserve it"s could mean that she broke up with him, and he raped her because he was mad...
  • Jonathan from Newcastle Upon Tyne, EnglandThis song is about a man who abuses his partner, hence the lyrics "Ive never wanted anybody more than i wanted you...the only thing i ever really loved was hurting you" also the person that Corey is portraying is a very controlling person "Decide...(will you die for me) Or give up...(the only chance you had of being free)
  • Andrew from Tacoma, Waone of my favorite slipknot songs
  • Dean from Bristol, CtThis song is about a man's relationship to God. An unhappy one at that, where he feels God is extremely selfish for demanding such attention and dedication. God is bragging about his pwer in this song as well ("Stay inside the hole - let me take control
    Dominate
    You were nothing more - you were something less
    Innocent
    Something has to give - something has to break
    Omnipresent") Man is nothing more than an innocent simpleton, God is the Omnipresent, dominating and controlling one.
  • Sean from York, Sci agree this is the best song of all times + eeyore and the heretic song "If you?re five five five...then I?m six six six" but then a gen i like all there songs they did i am like the biggest fan of all times slipknot for ever any one agree
  • Justin from Little Rock, Arthis is most definatly the sweetest song on vol 3
  • Brett from Rockton, Ilthis is a very awesome song im really not to impressed with slipknots newer stuff though
  • Alice from York, EnglandI think that this song, Before I forget and Danger Keep Away are the best songs off this album. Anyone Agree?
  • Sean Harris from Hatfield, PaProbably the best song on Vol. 3.
    LONG LIVE MAGGOTS!!!
  • Richard from Chino Hills, Caone of the best songs off vol.3
  • Mike from Lisbon, NdVery awesome song. One of the best on the new album. People keep saying slipknot is gettin worse since volume 3 came out but atleast they arent puttin out the same stuff over and over again. LONG LIVE THE KNOT
