You help me survive, you're the reason I'm alive
Speak softly, cyanide
Passed from your mouth into mine
Your breathing sounds like the sickest music playing backwards in my head
Contagions, so hellatious
You can't find the words so you scream instead

This lifeless ordinary
My righteous unsuspecting
I have a secret- you are a dichotomy

What won't kill me- makes me
What won't love me hates me
What won't kill me, dies

You could help me hide, you could keep me inside,
Heart broken, petrified
What am I supposed to do if you don't try?
Mad symmetry, senseless poetry
Laying naked on my bed
Contracted and frustrated
You won't say a word and your eyes are dead

This lifeless ordinary
My righteous unsuspecting
I have a secret you are a dichotomy

What won't kill me makes me
What won't love me hates me
What won't kill me, dies
What won't kill me makes me
What won't love me hates me
What won't kill me, dies

The whole fucking world's against us dude, I swear to God

    General Comment:When i was at the concert 2 weeks ago at the Roseland, before they played this song Corey said in these exact words "And this next song, is about having sex with dead people." So, I'm gonna believe him on that one. Stone Sour Rocks!

    General Comment:This song is awsome and i guess from what i read that your right its about screwing a corpse lol.

    these two lines are kick ass:Your breathing sounds like the sickest music playing backwards in my head
    Contagions, so hellatious
    You can't find the words so you scream instead

    and: Mad symmetry, senseless poetry
    Laying naked on my bed
    Contracted and frustrated
    You won't say a word and your eyes are dead.

    Stone sour and Slipknot fuckin rock!

    General Comment:That's messed up, I didn't realize this song was about necrophelia, though I've only had their special edition self-titled album for a few weeks now.

    I just think it's cool Corey quotes Jay (Jason Mewes) at the end: "The whole fucking world's against us dude, I swear to God...." Jay says that in both Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. That kicks @$$.
