"New Abortion" 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 ethereal, my children are legion, serial
They stick to my skin like beloved cysts
I tear away with my nails and teeth and fists
Touch the hands of inverted saints
Follow my heart through the threaded pain
Callow man is a sentinel screaming
I see the future the future is bleeding

Sores, every goddamn minute I can feel 'em now
Like a virus, you will never kill me now
Goin' underground, comin' on like hepatitis
We're out and you can't reshape us
Another bug in the construct
Tearin' up the main bus be
Zeros and ones are everything, execute me

Everywhere you look, it's like they know
Their fingerprints are hidden by control
This is where the line is drawn, see
You can't take my soul away from me

What do you need to see? ya feel the impact?
Gotta retract, everybody get back
What is this? it's like a big conspiracy
Fields of dejected morbid progeny
They always say that it's always our fault
But everything we say is taken with a grain of salt
Man, it's always the same, if we talk or complain
We only want to upset the balance
How's it feel to be the new abortion?
The only generation to suffer extortion

Everywhere you look, it's like they know
Their fingerprints are hidden by control
This is where the line is drawn, see
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me

Everywhere you look, it's like they know
Their fingerprints are hidden by control
This is where the line is drawn, see
You can't take my soul away from me
Everywhere you look, it's like they know
Their fingerprints are hidden by control
This is where the line is drawn, see
You can't take my soul away from me
You can't take my soul away from me
Fuck you

    General CommentThis song for all of the maggots. About all of the kids that are robbed of their identities, forced to grow up without finding their real selves because they have to follow in line.

    General Commentoh and bean boy..the percussionists are a derivative of the original meaning slipknot was ever actually put together back in the early 90's...shawn wanted slipknot to be different than other bands..anders wanted tribal percussion added..because no one else had it and he basically thought it was cool..the clown..is the one who actually created the band..they actually dont just bang on whatever..and if you actually paid attention you'd fuckin know that..listen to prosthetics..listen to the hyper version of spit it out..listen to carve..listen to the entire mate.feed.kill.repeat album..and you'll understand it..and if you think they suck thats you opinion..do as slipknot2002 said..get a life and stop putting down other people's music..if you hate it so goddamned much THEN DONT FUCKING LISTEN TO IT THEREFORE YOU DONT HAVE TO PUT IT DOWN SO GODDAMNED MUCH

    General CommentIt's about how the government forces people to abide by their rules. The chorus (Everywhere, you look it's like they know...) pretty much explains the whole meaning of the song.

    General Commenthow does it feel to be the new abortion? the only generation to suffer extortion....

    nothing we have is OURS...music, movies, everything in our youth culture is created from the minds and ideas of the baby boomers and the older Generation X'ers....

    everytime we do find something, they steal it, water it down, repackage it and commercialize it....

    General CommentSlipknot2002, I do have a life, it just doesn't consist of listening to horrible music. Besides, what's the point of Slipknot's 2 'custom percussionists'? All they do s bang on whatever they can find(i.e. trash cans, buckets, etc.) like the people from Stomp! Slipknot just rips everybody off.
