"Inside The Cynic" as written by and Joel/rand Ekman....
I hear my poisons in the multitude
Why was I damned a human deemed too rude
Somewhere between the madness and my mind
I live with legions called the human kind

I wander aimlessly amongst the herd
Infesting shadows, I am undeterred
I give opinion cause you give no peace
They say we manifest the new disease

[Chorus]
My head explodes
My soul berates
Erratic bonds,
They scar my face
I won't, exist
I won't, persist

I cast a weary gaze into the crowd
Ten thousand reasons dropped into my mouth
My theoretix can't begin to live
So I have nothing more than life to give

[Chorus]

See the lies you've given me
This is not what I should be
You say your truth isn't mine
Everything, everything, everything you say's a lie

[Chorus]

    General CommentI hear my poisons in the multitude
    Why was I damned a human deemed too rude
    Somewhere between the madness and my mind
    I live with legions called the human kind

    I wander aimlessly amongst the herd
    Infesting shadows, I am undeterred
    I give opinion cuz you give no peace
    They say we manifest THE NEW DISEASE

    My head EXPLODES
    My soul BERATES
    Erratic thoughts, They scar my face
    I won't- EXIST
    I won't- PERSIST

    I cast a weary gaze into the crowd
    Ten thousand reasons dropped into my mouth
    My theoretix can't begin to live
    So I have nothing more than LIFE TO GIVE

    My head EXPLODES
    My soul BERATES
    Erratic thoughts, They scar my face
    I won't- EXIST
    I won't- PERSIST

    See the lies you've given me
    This is not what I should be
    You say your truth isn't mine
    Everything, everything, everything you say's a lie

    My head EXPLODES
    My soul BERATES
    Erratic thoughts, They scar my face
    I won't- EXIST
    I won't- PERSIST

    General Commenti think corey is more pop in stone sour, than in slipknot. the last was much harder until subminial verses.

    General CommentIt's weird because in the beginning of the song if you listen closely it sounds like he's say "Hail Hitler", like it the first 2 seconds, well thats what me and my friends thought haha.

    General CommentCould just be me, but for the chorus, i'm hearing

    My head explodes
    My soul, he rapes
    Eratic thoughts
    This colour fades
    I won't, persist
    I won't exist

    I personally think this fits better with the theme of the song.
    for instance, why and who is his soul berating?
    how exactly are these bonds eratic?
    and how are said "eratic bonds" scarring his face?

    thoughts anyone?
