Left Behind

Album: Iowa (2001)
Charted: 24
  • I've known faces that have disappeared in time
    Find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime
    All my friends have pictures made to make you cry
    I've seen this and wondered what I've done to
    Calcify

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

    I can't stand to see your thalidomide robot face
    Don't even try it! You had be a liar just to
    Infiltrate me I'm still drowning

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

    Take, this, away
    Take, this, away
    I can feel it on my mouth
    I can taste you on my fingers
    I can hear you like the holy ghost
    And kill you if you get too close

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

    (I ignore you)
    As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
    (I come toward you)
    We all got left behind, we let it all slip away
    We let it all slip away
    We let it all slip away
    We let it all slip away
    We let it all slip away Writer/s: MICHAEL CRAHAN, MICHAEL SHAWN CRAHAN, CHRIS FEHN, CHRISTOPHER FEHN, PAUL GRAY, PAUL D GRAY, CRAIG JONES, NATHAN JORDISON, NATHAN J JORDISON, JAMES ROOT, COREY TAYLOR, MICKAEL THOMSON, SID WILSON, SIDNEY WILSON

  • Dillon from Bloomington, Indiana I haven't been into Slipknot for long, i think i started listening to them earlier this year, but I have absolutely loved what i have heard from them. I saw them at their Summer's Last Stand Tour up in Indy with my friend and we had the best time. Screaming, Jumping, and reciting the songs on the way home. It's really hard to choose a favourite song when all of them are so great, but i love to listen to this track while walking through the halls of this h*ll hole called high school. I have also learned a lot from this site and plan to use it for looking at Metallica songs.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjOh, my God! No comments on this great song?! I remember back when this song came out, I was visiting my childhood friends in California and after listening to "The Heretic Anthem" repeatedly that we downloaded, they finally debuted this song on the radio, wow, our jaws hit the floor! This was ten years ago and I still have fond memories of it (even though it was right before September 11th, I flew my plane home on August 11th 2001, holy crap!)
