"My Plague" as written by Craig Alan Jones, James Donald Root, Sidney George Wilson, Mickael Gordon Thomson, Michael Shawn Crahan, Corey Todd Taylor, Nathan Jonas Jordison, Paul Dedrick Gray and Christopher Michael Fehn....
I'm in conniptions for the final act you came here for
The one derivative you manage is the one I abhor
I need a minute to elaborate for everyone the
Everyday bullshit things that you have done

Your impossible ego fuck is like a
Megalomaniacal tab on my tongue
You fuckin' touch me I will rip you apart
I'll reach in and take a bite out of that
Shit you call a heart
Ya ya ya

I don't mind being ogled, ridiculed
Made to feel minuscule
If you consider the source, it's kinda pitiful
The only thing you really know about me is
That's all you'll ever know

I know why you plague me (yourself)
I know why you blame (yourself)

I'm turning it around like a knife in the shell
I want to understand why, but I'm hurting myself
I haven't seen a lotta reasons to stop it
I can't just drop it
I'm just a bastard, but at least I admit it
At least I admit it

I know why you plague me (yourself)
I know why you blame (yourself)

Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you
Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you
I can't fuckin' take it anymore
A snap of the synapse
And now it's fuckin' war
Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you

    This Song, and the rest of Slipknots songs all kick ass...

    1. you don't have to be depressed to enjoy their music...
    2. It is Music (Nu-Metal)
    3. Anyone who doesn't like slipknot is a moron...

    General CommentHey, Kraven, to correct you, it's Serj. Close enough. And I agree that Dez's voice rocks out. In fact, I'm just an angry mofo looking for an outlet, and bands like Slipknot, Coal Chamber, SOAD, and even Adema and Korn, are great for that outlet. I'd rather scream along to a song than go out and fracture a ton of skulls to get the same relaxing calm afterward. I applaud the screamers out there. Wreck your vocal cords, guys, 'casue we love ya for it!

    Song MeaningQuite deep text imo...

    This song really speaks to me, I'm really sick of the pathetic people siriously, being the "Derivative" and having a "0Shit that they call a heart". and they talk shit about me while;
    "The only thing you really know about me is...
    ...that's all you'll ever know"

    Kinda also want to quote from The Heretic Anthem for the quote above;
    "Everybody defamates from miles away
    But face to face, they haven't got a thing to say"

    So I'd say; Kill you - Fuck you - I WILL NEVER BE YOU@

    Song MeaningThe song is about hypocrites. The quote "kill you, fuck you / I will never be you" is directed to followers - people who are not being themselves, and trying to fit in by acting like someone else. The quote “I know why you plague me” means that he knows why people are messing with him and he is sick of it and of all the posers in this world; people doing things for popularity and so on. The quote “I'll reach in and take a bite out of that shit you call a heart,” is just warning everyone not to push him any further or else he will snap and kill him. The quote “I know why you plague (yourself)” is informing the person that he knows why he is messing around with him, and that he has had enough and he cannot be pushed around any longer."
