  • Give me the dust of my father
    Stand on the face of the ancients
    Bare the secret flesh of time itself

    Follow me (follow me)
    I've come so far behind again
    Follow me (follow me)
    Wish so hard I'm there again
    Follow me (follow me)
    Follow me (follow me)

    All that I wanted the things I had before
    All that I needed I've never needed more
    All of my questions were answers to my sins
    All of my endings are waiting to begin

    I know the way but I falter
    I can't be afraid of my patience
    There's a sacred place Razel keeps safe

    Follow me (follow me)
    I've seen so much I'm blind again
    Follow me (follow me)
    I feel so bad I'm alive again
    Follow me (follow me)

    All that I wanted the things I had before
    All that I needed I've never needed more
    All of my questions were answers to my sins
    All of my endings waiting to begin Writer/s: Christopher Fehn, Corey Taylor, Craig Jones, James Root, Michael Crahan, Mickael Thomson, Nathan Jordison, Paul Gray, Sidney Wilson

  • Robin from GermanyParts of the song were written and recorded in 2001.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjLove the drum beat at the end.
  • Alex from Beech Grove, InI think that this song's meaning is that fact that when you realize something that you did in the past or something that happened in the past or maybe even something you had that you took for granted, once it's gone or over with, you look back and envy your past self for having such a thing or you look back and realize you did wrong and the only way to get it again or not do the same mistake again is to realize how much you need it or how the mistake happened to not repeat it again.

    razel is a story chacter where basicaly sh*t happens..his life passes him by before he even can blink and when he does he opens his eyes and finds himself back to square one left to figure things out after all that has in that context i think corey relates himself to that charecter
