"Only One (MFKR Version)" as written by Christopher Michael Fehn, Mickael Gordon Thomson, Craig Alan Jones, Michael Shawn Crahan, Corey Todd Taylor, Nathan Jonas Jordison, Paul Dedrick Gray and Sidney George Wilson....
Pain made to order

I'm not the second coming
I'm the first wave

Better get an army
'Cause the fire left me unscathed
You betcha bottom dollar I'm the top of the shit pile
So stick around 'cause I'll get to you in just a few
Step off the achtung
Get back or get stung
Idiotic sense of yourself
Are you that dumb?
Entire legion of me
Totalitarian
The one and only muthafucka
Top of the world man

'Cause I can't stand it, planned it, gonna crash land it
In other words, consider me branded
Another version of me, another version of you
Both barrels, what you gonna do?

All I hear is human noise
You made your own fuckin' choice
I belong to only me
Silence for my revelry

I can only die over time
Filthy hands, stay away from mine
Every reason is a right to hate
Painful clutch, death is fine, gimme mine

Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away

Somebody explain this
You don't care 'cause you don't exist
What the fuck is this another joke?
Reckoning!

Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away
Only one of us walks away

    General CommentRight, ill be the first one to comment on this. As know it was written by Anders and he was into fantasy RPG's. Anyway his viewpoints are from someone called Garou (some RPG) who plays the part of peacekeeper most of the time, only to be laughed at by his peers. Finally, he steps up and shows them that he means business. Hence "Only one of us walks away".

    General CommentAll the songs from Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat slipknot's first album are in reference to Werewolf the Apocalypse (A pen and paper roleplaying game, such as Dungeons and Dragons) this is basically in reference to a get of fenris character, who is trying to get everyone to see things the same as he does in the war against the wyrm (get of fenris are a germanic/norse tribe of garou(werewolves) this can be seen by the line "valhalla's gone, with your soul"

    General CommentThat makes a lot of sense. I always thought it was about getting sick of someone's shit. On a personal note I prefer thsi version to the one with Corey. I guess I jsut love Anders's Voice.

    General CommentI like corey's voice better, I don't know why... I think it's funny when they go into the little rap thing, rap just doesn't mix with metal

    General Commentrap dosent mix with metal!
    never has a truer word been spoken! hail!

    Anyway..
    While I think the S/T version is criminally shooort,
    this version sorta gets away with it, cus the chorus is a natural end to the song, especially in the way Anders sings it.
    He sings it like a challenge, and it dosent really have that chorus feeling in it.

    General Commentyou guys are idiots, rap mixes perfectly with metal... have you NOT heard "Bring the Noise" from Anthrax/Public Enemy? or RATM's first album? Jesus, take your heads out of your asses!

    anyway, this song fucking rules and I love the version with Corey's vocals. I don't know, it just sounds better when he raps/screams, better than Anders, his voice is a little too gruff for me.
