"Take A Look Around" as written by and Durst/schifrin....
All the tension in the world today
All the little girls fillin up the world today
When the good comes to bad the bad comes to good
But I'm a live my life like I should

Now all the critics want to hit it
To Shit can how we did it
Just Because they don't get it
But I'll stay fitted
New era committed
Now this red cap gets a rap from his critics

Do we always gotta cry? (gotta cry)
Do we always gotta live inside a lie (a lie)
Life is just a blast
Its Movin really fast
You Better stay on top
Or life will kick you in the ass

Follow me into a solo
Remember that, kid
So what you want to do?
And where you gonna run

When your starin down the cable of a-
A mic pointed atcha grill like a gun
It's Limp Bizkit rockin the set
It's like Russian Roulette

When your placin your bet
So don't be upset
When your broke
And your done
'Cause i'm a be the one
'Til I jet

I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately

I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
Now I know why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately

Why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has even seen lately
Now you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has even seen lately

Does anybody really know the secret
Or the combination for this life and where they keep it
Its kinda sad when you don't know the meaning
But everything happens for a reason
I don't even know what I should say
'cause I'm an idiot a loser a microphone abuser
I analyze every second I exist
Beaten on my mind every second with my fist

Everybody want to run (run)
Everybody want to hide from the gun (gun)
You can take a ride through this life if you want
But You can't take that edge off that knife (no sir)
And now you want your money back (money back)
But your denied 'cause your brains fried from the sac
And there ain't nothing I can do
'Cause life is a lesson you'll learn it when your through

I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately

I know why you want to hate me
I know why you want to hate me
Now I know why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately

Why you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately
Now you want to hate me
'Cause hate is all the world has ever seen lately

(Now I know why..Now I know why..Now I know why)

Now I know why you want to hate me
Now I know why you want to hate me
Now I know why you want to hate me

'Cause hate is all the world has even seen lately
'Cause hate is all the world has even seen lately
'Cause hate is all the world has even seen lately

    General Commentit's a good song but the guitar work in the bridge is too much like guerilla radio but it's really easy to play so that makes it even better

    General CommentThis song is about SlipKnot's 'hate' for Limp Bizkit. (I'm a fan of SlipKnot too)
    "I know why you wanna hate me
    Cuz hate is all the world has even seen lately".
    Anyway this song is awsome.

    General CommentTo be fair, im kinda known as one of those people who insults limp bizkit. but this song kicks ass.... they did a good job of taking the original mission impossible beat and turning it into a rock song. its excellent!

    General Commentumm, im tired of all the limp bizkit haters, cuase i mean, theyre not great, but theyre still pretty good. the only gripe i hav about them, is they pretty much directly ripped off other rap/rock bands such as old RHCP, zebrahead, beastie boys, old 311, and obviously rage. limp has to come up with sumthin new, instead of stealing old ideas and copying them. anyway, limp isnt bad, and this song KICKS ASS. the instrumentals are great. and dursts voice goes with it perfectly
