Solway Firth

Album: We Are Not Your Kind (2019)
  • Today, up on this hill
    I'm counting all the killers
    They sway as they swarm
    A look of gluttons in their eyes
    They mutter as the body loses warmth
    They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
    And take great care to not take care of you

    Here's an unexplainable one

    Here's an unexplainable one

    While I was learning to live
    we all were living a lie
    I guess you got what you wanted
    So I will settle for a slaughterhouse soaked in blood and betrayal
    It's always somebody else
    somebody else was me
    You want the real smile?
    Or the one I used to practice not to feel like a failure?

    I don't need you to do it for me
    I don't need you to understand
    I don't need you to hide it from me
    I just want to feel like any other man
    I won't show you the whole story
    I won't show you the aftermath
    I won't show you my allegory
    Don't look away
    Here's an unexplainable one

    Here's an unexplainable one

    Here's an unexplainable one

    I'm not ahead of my time
    I just drew the first breath
    If I'm alive tomorrow
    I will alleviate the pressure
    by cutting you out of me
    I found my bottom line
    dead on the front lines
    I know I'll never go home
    So set fire to your ships and past regrets and be free

    I don't need you to do it for me
    I don't need you to understand
    I don't need you to hide it from me
    I just want to feel like any other man
    I won't show you my whole story
    I won't show you the aftermath
    I won't show you my allegory
    Don't look away
    Here's an unexplainable one
    What have you done?
    What have you done?

    Yeah

    While I was learning to live
    You taught me how to die
    I guess I got what I wanted
    Another needle in the back through purified scarification
    It wasn't somebody else
    You fucking did it to me
    You want a real smile?
    I haven't smiled in years Writer/s: Sid Wilson, Jim Root, Craig Jones, Shawn Crahan, Mick Thomson, Corey Taylor, Alessandro Venturella, Jay Weinberg

  • Pappy from HoustonNever have i listened to a song more than this one.
    This group is outstanding in their ability to act as a machine. The vocals are on point, drumming is unheard of and the guitar and bass is simply astonishing. DJ Starscream and Craig are the cherry on top. A very great band.
