  • Let's skip all the histrionics
    Not again, not another excuse
    The epidemic is codependent
    Biting off more than your mouth can chew
    Don't forget to convalesce your secrets
    I don't want to be a man today
    For all you know, I'm the silver in the bullet
    I am the trigger that will make you all obey

    I'm gonna make you cry tonight
    I'm gonna make you hate me

    Inside all my flaws again
    I can't let go
    In spite of you, I'm lost again
    I still don't know
    Disguise show me
    What am I if I am only?
    The status quo is not a punishment
    But now it feels like home

    Your association finds you guilty
    Starting with end of the day
    Black and white is such a fascist feeling
    Right or wrong, and nothing to say
    The last good bipeds cleaning up the fingerprints
    Unappreciated medical fiends
    Confiscate another classic inbred
    Fuck it all, light the acetylene

    No other choice, I can't explain
    Life keeps taking things away

    Inside all my flaws again
    I can't let go
    In spite of you, I'm lost again
    I still don't know
    Disguise show me
    What am I if I am only?
    The status quo is not a punishment
    But now it feels like home

    "The tough guys who came to kill, but stayed to rape and ravage."

    The future's here, I'm past my prime
    When the evidence came, I committed the crime
    Can you stand on your faith with your feet on the bible?
    Who could ask for a better disciple
    What's the point, I'm not sure I can
    I'll never dig another grave, I'm afraid of what I'll find
    If it hurts then you're too old
    I'll take your shit and give you fucking gold

    I'm gonna make you cry tonight
    I need you to hate me

    Inside all my flaws again
    I can't let go
    In spite of you, I'm lost again
    I still don't know
    Disguise show me
    What am I if I am only?
    The status quo is not a punishment
    But now it feels like home
    But now it feels like home Writer/s: Corey Taylor
