BREAK!

HERE COMES THE PAIN

ENEMY - SHOW ME WHAT YOU WANNA BE
I CAN HANDLE ANYTHING
EVEN IF I CAN'T HANDLE YOU
READILY - EITHER WAY IT BETTER BE
DON'T YOU FUCKING PITY ME
GET UP, GET OFF
WHAT THE HELL AM I SAYIN'?
I DON'T KNOW ABOUT MALEVOLENT
SURE AS HELL DECADENT
I WANT SOMEONE TO STEP UP, STEP OFF
WALLS! LET ME FALL! FUCK YOU ALL!
GET A GRIP, DON'T LET ME SLIP 'TIL I DROP THE BALL

FUCK THIS SHIT, I'M SICK OF IT
YOU'RE GOING DOWN, THIS IS A WAR!

FUCK IT!

WHO THE FUCK AM I TO CRITICIZE YOUR TWISTED STATE OF MIND?
YOU'RE LEAVIN' ME SUSPECT - I'M LEAVIN' YOU GROTESQUE
FEELS LIKE A BURN FROM WHICH YOU NEVER LEARN
CAUSE AND EFFECT, YOU JEALOUS ASS
PRESS YOUR FACE AGAINST THE GLASS - SUFFER!

FUCK THIS SHIT, I'M SICK OF IT
YOU'RE GOING DOWN, THIS IS A WAR...

GO!

I've just begun
It's about that time
Gotta get mine

I've just begun
It's about that time
Gotta get mine

I've just begun
It's about that time
Gotta get mine

I've just begun
It's about that time
Gotta get MINE!

YOU CAN'T KILL ME
CUZ I'M ALREADY
INSIDE YOU

YOU CAN'T KILL ME
CUZ I'M ALREADY
INSIDE YOU

YOU CAN'T KILL ME
CUZ I'M ALREADY
INSIDE YOU

YOU CAN'T KILL ME
CUZ I'M ALREADY
INSIDE YOU!

SIC!

SIC!

SIC!

SIC!

YEAH

    General Commentwhatever...slipknot is hella fucken good...chill with the trash talking kiddies :-D after all what good is a war of opinion...it's about as worthless as Palestine and as stupid as suicide bombings. Next time someone says some shit about slipknot, just kick back and smoke a bowl or take valiums or something...whatever puts those overactive hormones to rest. I'm not saying peace and love, but fuck is it annoying to read people's petty 25-page long arguments. Enough. *PeAcE... ^mwaz^* -JuLiE

    My InterpretationHmm... kind of surprised no-one has posted my idea on the 'you can't kill me cause I'm already inside you' lyric:

    Personally, I think at the time of writing Slipknot viewed themselves as a cancerous musical movement,something that people in the very bland late '90s music business would want to remove.

    They were 'inside' people already, they were inside the minds people who were listening to their music in a virus-like way. You can pick up on the same themes, though greatly intensified, in other songs - first one that springs to mind is The Heretic Anthem, I'm specifically thinking of the "I'm teaching your brightest they're listening, clamoring..." lyric. Clearly meaning teaching the brightest young people,the future, who're 'listening, clamouring' for Slipknot (The Heretic Anthem is a very anti music business song generally). Just my two cents.

    (By the way, at what point does the lyric "I - I want it all!" get sung? Maybe an earlier version of something)

    General CommentBasically if you get teased and made fun of throughout yourlife, get back at the people by beating them up or something. For instance '' Enemy show me wat u want to be i can handle anything even if i cant handle you'' to me is saying that get back at you enemy even if you cant handle them
