  • The bloody angle, the symmetry
    Your cheap adhesive isn't holding me
    My mouth is a gun I can shoot, I can show you the truth
    And I don't need a reason to lie to you

    No pun intended, no punishment
    If I offended you, you needed it
    Ideas are the bombs in your mind, a fissure in time
    If you don't have a weapon you can't have mine

    I can bleed if I want to bleed
    I can fail if I feel the need
    This face is my last confession
    This life, it feels like a prison

    Oh, I'm not afraid
    I'm giving into grievances again
    You're looking at an absolute zero
    I'm not the devil but I won't be your hero

    The catatonic, the sacrilege
    Your primadonnas are a privilege
    My god has a need to react, it's as simple as that
    It's better just to settle than face the facts

    I can bleed if I want to bleed
    I can fail if I feel the need
    This face is my last confession
    This life, it feels like a prison

    Oh, I'm not afraid
    I'm giving into grievances again
    You're looking at an absolute zero
    I'm not the devil but I won't be your hero

    One thing that I can't stand
    Is when the minutes fight the second hand
    I'll waste a lifetime's worth
    Just to cling to one more day

    No fucking quarter, no premiums
    The world is stuck in delirium
    Man is a four-letter word, it's really absurd
    The hate isn't fake, it's just inferred

    Oh, I'm not afraid
    I'm giving into grievances again
    I'm down to absolute zero
    Another zealot with the weight of the fucking world

    Oh, I'm not afraid
    And I will let you down as I hold you in
    You're looking at an absolute zero
    I'm not the devil but I won't be your hero Writer/s: Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Roy Maurice Mayorga
