Pentex sucks! Pentex sucks!!
They drain the life force of my tribe
Pentex sucks!

Bonegnawers suck! Bonegnawers suck!!
They roll around in garbage bins
All Bonegnawers suck!!

(Pentex is bleeding but night is falling)

The Black Hand sucks! The Black Hand sucks!!
Those wyrm-tainted bastard leeches
Black Hand sucks!

If I had my way! If I had my way!
I'd rend them all ripped and torn
ALL THAT SUCKS DIES!!

(Sweet smell bleeding glow is melting me)

I bring my klave into battle
Shifting into Crinos - I slay wyrmfoe
Then I step sideways....

You can't see me, for I hide within the Umbra

    General CommentWhat the lyrics in this song refer to are: Rage.
    Pentex, Bone-Gnawers, the Black Hand, Crinos, klave, Crinos, Umbra, and the Wyrm all are from the White Wolf games Rage and Werewolf: The Apocalypse.

    General CommentHehe, one of my fav. Slipknot songs because of the Werewolf references, a shame only 2 of the original band members are left. For any one who doesn't play the game, Pentex is an immense corporation that intends to rape and defile Gaia ( mother earth ) in a bid for global domination. BoneGnawers are a tribe of werewolves ( the warriors of Gaia ) but they live in cities and are mostly bums, the other werewolves usually despise them. The Black Hand is an order of vampires. A klaive is a big silver knife. Crinos is the war form of werewolves, a mesh of man and wolf. Wyrmfoe are minions of the Wyrm, which want to destroy Gaia. To stepsideways is to go into the Umbra, and the Umbra is a spiritual world linked to the material one ( and the subject of the song Gently ). Thats it.
