"Surfacing" as written by Christopher Michael Fehn, Mickael Gordon Thomson, Craig Alan Jones, Michael Shawn Crahan, Corey Todd Taylor, Nathan Jonas Jordison, Paul Dedrick Gray and Sidney George Wilson....
Fuck you all!

Running out of ways to run
I can't see, I can't be
Over and over and under my skin
All this attention is doing me in!

Fuck it all! fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don't belong! don't exist!
Don't give a shit!
Don't ever judge me!

Picking through the parts exposed
Taking shape, taking shag
Over and over and under my skin
All this momentum is doing me in!

Fuck it all! fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don't belong! don't exist!
Don't give a shit!
Don't ever judge me!

And don't you fuckin judge me!

Pain

You got all my love, livin' in your own hate
Drippin' hole man, hard step, no fate
Show you nothin', but I ain't holdin' back
Every damn word I say is a sneak attack
When I get my hands on you
Ain't a fucking thing you can do
Get this 'cause you're never gonna get me
I am the very disease you pretend to be

I am the push that makes you move
I am the push that makes you move
I am the push that makes you move
I am the push that makes you move

Fuck it all! fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don't belong! don't exist!
Don't give a shit!
Don't ever judge me!

Fuck it all! fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don't belong! don't exist!
Don't give a shit!
Don't ever judge me!

    General Commentkiller song. I think its like an anthem for people who society doesnt give a fuck about anymore cos theyre different from the crowd and dont care about fitting in. Awesome lyrics, the best line i think is "Get this cos youre never gonna get me/ I am the very disease you pretend to be".

    Song MeaningOkay, this example is going to sound very silly, but it's a prime one of how I connect this song to my life, and just how much I interweave music into it (and how I insane I am!!!!!!). I recently got a cute little stuffed bird as an Easter gift, and the following day after, I wanted to bring it along to school with me. My mom laughed at the idea and forbade me to. Her argument for such was because "18 year old guys don't do such things". I backed up my side of the argument by stating that there were a couple of girls in my choir who were playing around with a finger puppet in a fashion very similar on which I planned to do with the stuffed bird. Her response was "Well they're girls."

    I got pissed afterward. Not only was the remark SEXIST (sexism is a pet peeve of mine), but also a hampering of who I truly am. And thus, this song comes in. Know what I'm saying? FUCK SEXISM, FUCK WHAT ANYONE ELSE THINKS, AND DO WHAT YOU FEEL IS RIGHT IN YOUR HEART.
