Come on!

Here we go again mother f***er!

Yeah!

Come on down
And see the idiot right here
Too f***ed to beg and not afraid to care
What's the matter with calamity anyway
Right, get the f*** out of my face
Understand I can't feel anything
It isn't like I wanna sift through the decay
I feel like a wound
Like I got a f***ing gun against my head
You live when I'm dead

One more time mother f***er!

Everybody hates me now so f*** it
Blood on my face and my hands and I don't know why
I'm not afraid to cry
But that is none of your business

Whose life is it, give it, see it, feel it, eat it
Spin it around so I can spit in it's face
I wanna leave without a trace
'Cause I don't want to die in this place

People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
(what you gonna do)
(I'm not afraid of you)
(I'm everything you'll never be)

Come on!

It never stops
You can't be everything to everyone
Contagion I'm sittin' on the side of Satan
What do you want from me?
They never told me the failure I was meant to be
Overdo it, don't tell me you blew it
Stop your b****in'
And fight your way through it
I'm not like you
I just f*** up

Come on motherf***er everybody has to die
Come on motherf***er everybody has to die!

People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
(Yeah)
People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
People equals s***
(What you gonna do)
(I'm not afraid of you)
(I'm everything you'll never be)

    General CommentI read on another site what slipknot's member Shawn crahan said the meaning of this song was. He said the meaning is "people are like an incurable disease that is destroying or world" or something similar to that.

    General CommentI'm not sure if other people have said this.

    But I think this song is about how people don't care about anybody else but themselves anymore. They won't even do something as simple as letting someone into to traffic because they have to get to where they need to go and that's the only thing that matters.

    And also I'm sick and tired of everybody thinking I'm fucked up because I say People = Shit.

    General Comment"Misanthropy is a generalized dislike, distrust, disgust, contempt and hatred of the human species, human nature, or society. A misanthrope is someone who holds those views and feelings. The word's origin is from Greek words μῖσος (misos, "hatred") and ἄνθρωπος (anthrōpos, "man, human being")." In other words 'PEOPLE=SHIT' This song is all about misanthropy. In my opinion this is the misanthropic anthem and being a misanthrope I should know. The title of this song reminds me of Tyler Durten referring to his people as 'made up of the same decaying organic matter as the rest of the world.' An individual or group of individuals can be intelligent, insightful and contribute something worthwile to society however when you witness the idiocy, ignorance, intolerance and blind conformoty of a herd mentality, particularly a mob mentality, you realise what people as a whole really are.
    Fuck all of you(love)
