"In Your Words" as written by David Randall Blythe, Mark Morton, Will Adler, John Campbell and Chris Adler....
A sacred cash cow with sickly tits
Dripping temptation for hypocrites
To death she's beaten
The prosperous endlessly stating the obvious

Caught in your words, sever the knot this time
Somebody show me their true face
Face me once as I leave all that I despise
Face me as I unleash this hate refined

Indict the blameless
Transparent designs
Pathetic and shameless
Crucified
A legend in his own mind, enthroned by lies
A cheap Machiavelli plots his demise

Caught in your words, sever the knot this time
Somebody show me their true face
Face me once as I leave all that I despise
Face me as I unleash this hate refined
Face me as I leave all this far behind
Face me as I unleash this hate refined

What once gave life
Now infested with plague
The lamb lies with maggots
Blinded, gagged, betrayed

What once gave life
Now infested with plague
The lamb lies with maggots
The corpse bloated with rage

    General CommentI'm not entirely sure, but I think this song is about how the churches are using religion to make money off their believers, and how their priests take advantage of it to ascend themselves to a higher status. Thus "A sacred cash cow with sickly tits, dripping temptation for hypocrites".

    No one of these who preach religion believes in it themselves, they just take advantage of it for their own winnings. ("A legend in his own mind, enthroned by lies") The main character sees through all of these lies and challenges the preachers to show their true face, and he leaves behind what he once believed in, what once gave life, but that is now infested with plague. Too bad this is true in so many cases.

    General CommentOkay, so I love both bands very much. But could they be talking about Slipknot somehow?? I bet I'm wrong, but I'm only taking a guess. Here's why I think so...

    "Caught in your words, sever the knot this time" - They said "knot"
    And "The lamb lies with maggots" - They said "maggots"

    General CommentAnyone notice that around 3:25, it's about the same tabs as "Blacked the Cursed Sun". It sounds badass

    General CommentWow...I know others have brought this up, but I have to say that you butchered the lyrics for this one. The original lyrics however, are great.

    Anyway, as far as the meaning of the song goes, my best guess is that it's mocking Jesus?
    "Pathetic and shameless, crucified
    A legend in his own mind, enthroned by lies"

    My OpinionJudging by most of the lines from this song, it seems that log took a shot at dissing slipknot or corey taylor.... i could be wrong, it could also be directed at hypocritical religious bastards!

    General CommentI don't see how you people relate this back to Slipknot what so ever... Yeah, so they said "knot" and "maggots". Loose correlation between this song and the band. Just saying.

    I'm going with the song being about the money-thirsty Catholic Church.

    General CommentI think it's about negative feelings toward an abusive mother by her morally corrupted son.
