  • Gone, I couldn't murder your promise
    Right before my eyes
    The revolutions of my psychosis
    Kept me outta the way

    Once, inside, all I hold is ash

    Fail, suppressing every feeling
    I'm in so much pain
    I have every fuckin' right to hate you
    I can't take it!

    The hardest part was knowing that I could never be you
    Now all I do is sit around and wish I could forget you

    My demise, I took a life worth living and
    Made it worth a mockery
    I deny, I fold, but they keep on coming
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me

    Who are you to me? Who am I to you?
    Is this a lesson in nepotistic negligence?
    By default, you are my only link to the outside
    Psychosomatic suicide
    Where were you when I was down?
    Can you show me a way
    To face everyday with this face, goodbye

    My demise, I took a life worth living and
    Made it worth a mockery
    I deny, I fold, but they keep on coming
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me

    When I blur my eyes, they make the whole
    World breath, I see you fucking me
    And I am absolutely controlly every urge
    To mutilate, the one and only answer
    So much for memories
    I want to dress in your insecurities
    And be the perfect you, I'm through
    I'm out-stretched out for all to loathe
    Here we go, the ultimate irony

    My demise, I took a life worth living and
    Made it worth a mockery
    I deny, I fold, but they keep on coming
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    I'm always ready to die but you're killing me
    Killing me, killing me, killing me

  • Blake from Vacaville, Canotice whenever its a song about Corey's father, its always hardcore. listen to Eyeless. also about his father and vocals blow my mind. kind of ironic how Corey and his father have a great relationship nowadays yet Slipknot still perform Eyeless. wish they would play metabolic and i am hated.
  • Kenneth from Sulphur Springs, TxI know is sucks to not know a parent.Ive never met my mother.Stay strong Corey and keep kicking ass.
  • Dean from Daytona, --It would totally suck if you didnt meet your dad till you were 32 I feel bad for you Cory but your dad sounds like a total BASTARD
