Wither

Album: Special Effects (2015)
  • I don't care, they say my angel glow is subsiding
    I'm sliding outside of these high beams and I won't dare
    Try to mend this tear, I love I'm fading
    The good once there is just dying
    So I'm withering away and I'ma trigger when I spray
    And I'm attacking everybody till the feeling's gone!

    All my life I loved with people, so passive back then
    I thought I'd be above this evil, my tolerance level
    Then was up with doves and eagles
    Currently I've hit ground zero under bugs and beetles
    I'm tilted, inside my head's a lettuce but wilted
    Serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine I spilt it
    Could it be how many times I've been ran over and jilted?
    That makes me wanna totally detach from light and just kill shit

    I'll know when the pain is gone
    It's just a matter of time before my bosses win
    And I can feel the wrong
    Coming up through the cracks of my heart again
    I'm holding on, I'm going
    Straight into the mouths of makers
    Everything that keeps me calm was taken
    I'm letting go, I'm burning through, reserves are low
    Just pushing on these old restraints
    My time is up cause it's too late

    I'm about to blow up on anyone in my way
    My anger's set to show up, at any time today
    I'm about to blow up on anyone in my way
    My anger's set to show up, at any time today

    I am lookin' for some fire, yeah, putting on my gang attire
    Drooling and blood I can taste, so get the fuck outta my face
    I'm a killer with a quick switch, yeah, all I ever really wanted was bliss
    Look at me wither to waste, so get the fuck outta my face
    Find another one to get bent, yeah, and it ain't no stoppin' this
    Lovin' the thrill of the chase, so get the fuck outta my face
    N9ne's a nigga with the sick-ness, yeah, and it ain't no blockin' this
    It doesn't matter the race, just get the fuck out my face

    Going, withering away
    Going, withering away
    Going, withering away

    I gotta say, when my mother died, I really did inside
    And that's the other thing that did it
    Turning my crazy on a hundred babies gonna plummet
    Maybe I should be committed

    What am I supposed to do?
    Do I just keep faking? Fucking forsaking everything I am?
    Another pissed mother fucker with a fist and a plan
    Oh but you're making me do this
    I can scream while you stand there clueless
    If you're listening I've made up my mind
    Take another step and I'll snap this time!

    Something please save me, I'm losing myself

    I don't think I wanna stop it, but the feeling inside is nauseous
    I get really exhausted off it, gotta find a way to wash it lock it
    Profit nada so I got to drop it, ain't nobody in the cockpit
    Toss this lostness, people from the office boxes
    If you cross this boss live cautious
    Don't make me, don't make me repeat myself
    For your safety, because a pilly is beneath my belt
    But I don't wanna do anything bad to anybody
    But I'll never be perfect
    So I'mma say to the people that got a little evil
    comin' at you from me I think they deserve it

    Going, withering away
    Going, withering away
    Going, withering away
    (GONE)

    Straight, literally snappin' out
    My lady backin' out cause I'm becoming really mean and vicious
    Watching me wither, how can I give her
    Blood when I been so tainted by these bitches

    We are the arsenal
    Chemically imbalanced, completely disposable
    So butter my knuckles and taste it
    Another sick delinquent is wasted
    I don't forgive, I don't forget
    I haven't got time to regret
    Everybody else in the world can hate me
    Nobody but me can save me!

    Shit, Yates, hates, this, place
    If you're close enough to me to hit the switch
    You better never turn it on
    I get the feelin' I'm gonna be craving a
    Killin I gotta be real and the evil'll
    Fill up and sucker the middle man 'till he be
    GONE! Writer/s: Aaron Dontez Yates, Corey Taylor
