"Welcome" as written by Corey Todd Taylor, Nathan Jonas Jordison, Craig Alan Jones, Christopher Michael Fehn, Mickael Gordon Thomson, James Donald Root, Michael Shawn Crahan, Paul Dedrick Gray and Sidney George Wilson....
I am a product, of your context
The uncontrollable urges that made me a menace
I'm all your problem, do you even care?
Pretend it's all a lie, that's how we made it here

Can't abate the truth with your secrets,
But you were far too impressed with your pretense
Now as far as I know, I don't know anything
'Cause you made damn sure, I wasn't anything

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Crawl away from human clay
We our the broken shards beyond disarray
Before you cut them, you rape them
(Feed us by going on!)
Gonna go from my souls to my throat
You shouldn't wall us up with your apathy
But you did and now you're only growing enemies
This is the catalyst, the alpha, the first breed
'Cause you made damn sure, now we're everything

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Maximize our prize of a record
It's all on the path and the words are of murder
This time I won't give in
I will save you from my sins

(What is wrong with this
Manipulation
Violence and Chaotic)

Destroy my taste and all that's right
I slam you shut, I can only take so much
How many times do I have to mistreat you?
'Cause you leap out of my hand as I feed you
Maybe now you'll understand severity
I sum it up with offense no matter poverty

Welcome to the transformation
Welcome to annihilation
Welcome to the man that wanted
Everything, but couldn't have it

Distractions, Reactions
The only way to go is to go away
Discarded, Retarded
Before I let you go, you have to let me

Maximize our prize of a record
It's all on the path and the words are of murder
This time I won't give in
I will save you from my sins

Save you from my sins
Save you from my sins

    General CommentACTUAL LYRICS, TAKEN FROM THE BOOKLET:

    I am a product of your conduct
    The uncontrollable urges that made me have made us all
    Are you proud? Do you even care?
    You taught us all a lie, that's how we made it here
    You should've buried the truth with your secrets
    But you were far too impressed with your pretense
    Now as far as I know, I don't know anything
    'Cause you made damn sure I wasn't anything!

    Distraction, reaction
    The only way to go is to go away
    Discarded, retarded
    Before I let you go you have to let me

    Clawed away from human clay
    We are the broken shards, the art disarray
    Before you condemn, you rape them
    Feed us meconium
    Stunt our growth from our souls to our throats.
    Cut!
    You shouldn't wall us up with your apathy
    But you did, and now you're only growing enemies
    This is the catalyst, the alpha, the first breed
    'Cause you made damn sure...now we're everything!

    Distraction, reaction
    The only way to go is to go away
    Discarded, retarded
    Before I let you go you have to let me

    Much to my surprise I will wake up
    And follow the path of the ones that I'm made of
    But this time I won't give in
    I will save you from my sins

    (What is wrong with this--manipulation--chaotic)

    Ensconsed
    In all that's wrong
    I slam you shut
    I can only take so much!
    How many times do I have to mistreat you?
    Constantly biting my hand as I feed you
    Maybe now you'll understand severity
    I'll sum it up with the best amount of brevity

    Welcome to the transformation
    Welcome to annihilation
    Welcome to the man that wanted everything
    But couldn't have it

    Distraction, Reaction
    The only way to go is to go away
    Discarded, Retarded
    Before I let you go you have to let me

    Much to my surprise I will wake up
    And follow the path of the ones that I'm made of
    But this time I won't give in
    I will save you from my sins

    I'll save you from my sins!

    General CommentThe album's incredible, but I think Welcome could be classified as the first of two bits of filler on the album, the second being Pulse of the Maggots.

    General CommentAnd NeutralPunkGuy, yet again, you prove to be incapable of reading from an actual lyrics booklet.

    "Crawl away from human clay
    We are the broken shards beyond dissaray
    Before you cut then you rape them
    Feed us by going on" - WTF??!!

    Try
    "Clawed away from human clay
    We are the broken shards - the art disarray
    Before you condemn, you rape them
    Feed us meconium"

    ^ Taken from the actual Vol. 3 lyrics booklet. Take this to heart: don't post anymore lyrics. Please.

    General CommentIn a nutshell what Corey is trying to stress is that: his feelings are molded by others. If he hates you, its cuz of what you've done. If he loves you, its cuz of who you are. If he wants to kill you, its cuz you make him want to kill you! It focuses on someboday that he perhaps doesnt want to see again. Very heavy song!
