"Only One" 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....
Pain made to order

I'm not the second coming
I'm the first wave

Better get an army
'Cause the fire left me unscathed
You betcha bottom dollar I'm the top of the shit pile
So stick around 'cause I'll get to you in just a few
Step off the achtung
Get back or get stung
Idiotic sense of yourself
Are you that dumb?
Entire legion of me
Totalitarian
The one and only muthafucka
Top of the world man

'Cause I can't stand it, planned it, gonna crash land it
In other words, consider me branded
Another version of me, another version of you
Both barrels, what you gonna do?

All I hear is human noise
You made your own fuckin' choice
I belong to only me
Silence for my revelry

I can only die over time
Filthy hands, stay away from mine
Every reason is a right to hate
Painful clutch, death is fine, gimme mine

Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away

Somebody explain this
You don't care 'cause you don't exist
What the fuck is this another joke?
Reckoning!

Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away

    General CommentThe meaning to Only One is all too obvious... Corey is pissed off that some asshole's been talking some serious shit about him. Not only is he pissed, but he is going to rectify the situation by finding the fucker and breaking his fucking face.

    General CommentThis song is from Mate, Feed, Kill, Repeat, but Slipknot rewrote the lyrics from the original song so it wouldnt be about an RPG anymore.

    The "only one of us walks away" part is unchanged though

    General CommentMan, this song is so fucking cool.
    maddox86 is right, it's a fight anthem, and Corey is talking about how when you are in a fight, you go into a different mode "Another version of me, another version of you" is like they have gone into kill mode.

    General CommentPainful Clutch! DEATH IS FINE, GIMME MINE!

    Some mouth router routed some rage inducing signals in his direction and now he's carving his path of vengence and destruction. Basically he's saying there aint no stoppin' this wave of fire, cuz' it's on...he's on...his rival's on...corey's gonna introduce his enemy to their apocalypse.

    Or a one man militia up against a political powerhouse.

    ONLY ONE OF US WALKS AWAY!!!!!
