"Made of Scars" as written by James Donald Root, Shawn Economaki, Josh Rand and Corey Todd Taylor....
This one came from looking, this one opened twice
These two seemed smooth as silk, flush against my eyes
This one need stitches, and this one came from rings
This one isn't even there, but I feel it more because you don't care

Yeah, cut right into me
Yeah, because I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

This one had it coming, this one found a vein
This one was an accident, but never gave me pain
This one was my father's, and this one you can't see
This one had me scared to death
But I guess I should be glad I'm not dead

Yeah, cut right into me
Yeah, because I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

God, don't you believe the hype
God, don't you believe the hype
God, don't you believe the hype
God, don't you believe the hype

And I will find a way
Everything you are I will betray
Oh, I swear that I will find a way
Everything you are's inside me

This one was the first one
This one had a vice
This one, here, I like to rub on dark and stormy nights
This one was the last one
I don't remember how
But I remember blood and rain
And I never saw it coming again

Yeah, cut right into me
Yeah, because I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars
Yes, I am made of scars

That's what I'm made of

    General Commentcorey has openly admitted to recording some songs for his bands in the booth cutting and puking on himself..but no the song is emotional trauma from never knowing his father and only hearing horror stories of his father. Some of the scars were emotional ones from his father. But the majority are scars caused by other people who said horrible things about his father. all he had heard before he met his dad was he was trash. Eyel e Ss by Slipknot has a line also referencing his pain caused by his dad walking out before he knew him. "i am my father's son cus he's a phantom of mystery and that leaves me nothing".
    just my two cents don't rage over me i'm a huge fan of corey's band and SlipKnoT. But in the end only the write of the song will know every meaning to every word in the song we only get the main idea.

    General CommentI think it could mean "Everything that has happened to me in the past has shaped the person I am today."

    The way he says "everything you are I will betray" might suggest that he resents who he is and wants to change it.

    General CommentI think it means he cuts himself and he has a meaning for each cut

    but if people like to get technical... it probably means how many times he's been hurt... like emotional cuts

    General CommentNope, he's Emo. LOL. Jokes. But seriously I think it is about the emotional scars that Corey has, like from being traumatised by an experience.

    General Comment"This one needed stitches and this one came from rings
    This one isn't even there, but I feel it more because you don't care"

    and

    "This one was the first one - this one had a vice
    This one here I like to rub on dark and stormy nights
    This one was the last one - I don't remember how
    But I remember blood and rain
    And I never saw it coming again"

    Makes me think it's about him being abused. But the rest makes me think it's about cutting. Maybe it's a bit of both.

    General Commentin this song he is using scars as a metaphor for all of his past hurt and pain. NOT cos he is emo. He is saying he is made of scars cos he feels like they are all over him from all of his past experiences

    General Commenti think this song is about both literal and emotional scars... he's been hurt by others and hurt himself as well... and everything that he has been through has made him who he is today...

    General Commentlol cutting. Alot of lyricists use these things called "Metaphors"

    If you want to relate to a song about cutting go listen to 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails. Anything by NIN, really. Passive aggressive a-holes.
