Chastity
What a virtue to be stolen
Tragedy
Has forsaken into fake
Blasphemy
Shadow stripped me of my reason
Misery
Comes to bed with me tonight
What am I gonna do

And now I can't believe
You let this happen to me
And I can't believe
They put those daggers through me
And I can't believe
You didn't come to save me from my pain


Laughed at me
They hit my face and clutched my rosary
Humility
A lesson best just left alone
Heresy
Because I'm two inside my body
Irony
A child of love from a man I hate
Until my dying day


And now I can't believe
You let this happen to me
And I can't believe
They put those daggers through me
And I can't believe
You didn't come to save me from my pain

And now I can't believe
You let this happen to me
And I can't believe
They put those daggers through me
And I can't believe
You didn't come to save me from my pain

    General Commentwhat I can't believe is that no one is posting their comments to this song, I am a big slipknot and stone sour fan and I must admit, this shows a lot of talent, shows u that corey taylor can do more then just scream (according to some people). this is definately one of my favourite stone sours songs even though it is around 10 years old now

    General CommentThis song is about a Nun who is raped as has a child from a rapist.

    "Chastity, what a virtue to be stolen"
    "Shadow stripped me of my reason"

    She was pure, she lived for god, yet a dark force takes her virginity away, she technically lost her reason.

    Chastity is a sexual term, and her pureness was stolen from her.

    "Misery comes to bed with me tonight"

    She exclaims to god, the one she lived for, in the chorus,

    "I can't believe you let this happen to me"
    "I can't believe you didn't come and save me from my pain"

    Pretty self explanatory.

    "They ripped me of my rosary"
    "Because I'm two inside my body" -(The unborn Child)
    "A child of love from a man I hate"
    Her child was from a rapist, the term rapist has a sense of being "Evil" Evil=devil. The one she hates forced her to have a child.

    Anyway that is my take on the song, but yes a badass one.

    General CommentI am with my plague47 on this one its a great song and should be shown respect.
    Judging from Coreys voice he was alot younger when he recorded this song and still kicked ass on this song.

    I think this song is about Coreys hate for his dad that was never there for him and how he can't believe he just left him like that, thats fucked up.

    General CommentI agree with theinhale227.
    I think this song is about a religious person who was raped, and now she is questioning her faith.

    "Chastity, what a virtue to be stolen" Her virginity was stolen.
    "Blasphemy, shadow stripped me of my reason" She committed blasphemy but had no choice.
    "I can't believe you let this happen to me" She's angry at god for letting this happen.
    "A child of love from a man I hate, until my dying day" She now has an unborn child whose father is a rapist, and she'll have to live that for the rest of her life.
