  • This song is not for the living
    This song is for the dead

    With my face against the floor
    I can't see who knocked me out of the way
    I don't want to get back up
    But I have to, so it might as well be today
    Nothing appeals to me, no one feels like me
    I'm too busy being calm to disappear
    I'm in no shape to be alone
    Contrary to the shit that you might hear

    So walk with me, walk with me
    Don't let this symbolism kill your heart
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Just like we should have done right from the start
    Walk with me, walk with me
    Don't let this fucking world tear you apart Writer/s: COREY TAYLOR, JAMES ROOT, MICHAEL CRAHAN
