"Don't Get Close" as written by Craig Jones, Chris Fehn, Mickael Thomson, James Root, Sid Wilson, Corey Taylor, Nathan Jordison, Paul Gray and Michael Crahan....
Somebody give me some light
Not pointed into the dark
Somebody show me the end
Not trying to push a start
Not trying to figure out
A better way, a better answer
But I keep finding all the problems
I've been looking after

Don't get wound up in the world
With nothing but a smile
I'll take a ton of words
And use them to instill denile
Don't get close
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Shivelry, will get you somewhere
Rivalry, will take you there

Don't get close
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Shivery, will get you somewhere
Rivalry, will take you there
Maybe I should look away
Before I really miss
Maybe I should pick the time
Before I pick the place
I bet you all the things
That you emulate, you penalize
But I don't want to go
Before you learn to finalize

Don't get close
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Shivelry, will get you somewhere
Rivalry, will take you there
Don't get close
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Shivery, will get you somewhere
Rivalry

You assitane the plot
My vision's overshot
I have the best confection
I was gone for all the lessons
Who coined these words I use
Stay out and be abused
I didn't want to be
The undeniable source of everything

Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
You'd better stay away
Don't get close
You'd better stay away
Don't get close
You'd better stay away
Don't get close
You'd better stay away

Need change, watching all the conflicts
Constrict, push the fist in, squeeze it
I can not resist, claws and fist
Remember, remember
You take the rivalries
And never made much sense
I have the worst possession
What I want is so insensitive
Stay out and be abused
Cause this is so confused
I only want to be
Left over, now run away

Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
Don't get close
You'd better stay away
Don't get close
You'd better stay away
Don't get close
You'd better stay away

    General CommentGod, what is wrong with you people...this is a relatively good song with quite the hidden meaning...All you morons think Slipknot and picture little poser kids....but Slipknot is relatively good....So stop acting like self-righteous pricks and pretending that you know what this entire world should be like...

    General CommentSpeaking as an avid Slipknot fan, I didn't think it was up to their normal standard. It's listenable, but just not ear-grabbing stuff. And let's stop with the dumbass "true Maggots love everything by Slipknot" shit, because the term "Maggot" is getting a little old now, and even I'll admit some of KnoT's older stuff is complete turd - 45% of the IOWA album was, and so is the song Pulse of the Maggots from Vol 3. But that's just my opinion. If you've got your own, then bully for you!

    General Commentahh your constant muttering disturbs me ...this song was greaat ..I'd rather stick to the meaning than your tastes...if you want taste,.,..try pop ....Slipknot is hard merciless raw metal not for new age punks like you ...now why dont you just step out of your ridiculous pathetic suggestions..you make my stomach hury .. and one thing dude...SIC MAGGOTS NEVER DIE NOR DO THEY AGE..you losers make me so sick I feel like nailing you to the wall ...and gashing the life off your wrists ( what a wild imagination) ...any way ...unlike you morons I'll give meaning to the site....I think this is all about feeling so out of control that the only place you can resort to is yourself...more like a cocoon because when you are hurt you are so vulnerable to pain so you kinda like snap at anyone who trys to play nice ..trying to get to you for their selfish intents ..then thats were the "DONT GET CLOSE " comes.. As for the punk losers who kinda made my day complete ..Dont get close to this place again..when you dish out slipknot ..you dish out sic maggots .and you dont want yourself caught in their way ..heed to my warning ..Slipknot is all about meaning and less tastes for you ..anyway thats what corey always says..we dont care about your tastes ..that was what the heretic anthem was all about although I do not believe that cultish elements where neccessary ..but you get the point ...go to your poppish ways and leave slipknot out of your foul-tasted ways..now if you wanna pick on something you dont know about ...dissing out this song at will....before you face me ..SLIT YOUR WRISTS AND DIE ,,,and I'll watch you WAIT AND BLEED

    General CommentThis is a cool song, it keeps loooooosers away when you sing it really loud, then nobody bothers you, so to all you haters, sing louder, so that we all can hear you.
