  • Kenneth from Sulphur Springs, TxCrahan is right were all just bloodthirsty monsters who love to slaughter and destroy everything we touch.Humanity had a meaning before but now its just a word we use to make ourselves sleep better at night.In other words were all damned souls and theres no use fighting our nature. If you have a better opinion of the human race then enjoy it while it lasts cause sooner or later youre going to open youre eyes to the truth and when that day comes youre lfe ceases to have any meaning and you walk a hollow shell of what humans were meant to be.Sorry for being so deppressing.
  • Kelsie from Pittsfield, MaWhen asked why "People=S--t" Crahan says "We are what we are, we just waste and we ruin and we corrupt, and we destroy," so People=S--t basically because we are our own worst enemy, we are going to be the end of the earth and no one seems to give a sh*t.
    The message trying to get across is that of the human race is depleating itself of the simple pleasures in life and that everyone is now fake. Fake meaning people, society, everyone, is now pretending to be someone else. Not caring about others, and just themselves. In this act, they are a disease put on earth and we must show them the reality of life. They kill themselves, and or others, because they do not know what is going on in the real world because they are so wrapped up in the world politics and media, they hide reality from people because it will scare them. People need to know. People are the #1 cause of destruction on this earth and this needs to change, but the sad fact is, we can't. That is what they are trying to get across."
  • Syton from Colorado Springs, CoThere should be more comments on this song. Slipknot=one of the greatest bands of all time. I don't know where people like me would be without this kind of stuff around. This song rocks hard as hell!
