"Mission Statement" as written by Corey Taylor, Shawn Economaki, James Root, Josh Rand and Roy Mayorga....
Just this once
I'll go the front I'll let you all disagree
You won't last all you got is the past
An overnight shotgun that fucked up the dream
No excuses and no surprise
The real McCoy is the look in your eyes
I don't rate let them alienate
This American selfish everything!

We're the breakdown I will break ground
On original sin
Suddenly I'm on the right side
In the middle of nowhere again
I am in your hands and I don't mind
'Cuz I don't understand
I am in your hands
I want you all to tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Just tell me who I

Just in case it's an arrogant face
'Cuz I know you all wanna see
Here's the test you are tied to the past
No one fells like you screams like me
All the confusion and all the control
The real McCoy isn't real anymore
And I'm amazed at the innocent taste
Of America's selfish everything!

We're the breakdown I will break ground
On original sin
Suddenly I'm on the wrong side
In the middle of nowhere again
I am in your hands and I don't mind
'Cuz I don't understand
I am in your hands I want you all
To tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Somebody tell me

I am in your hands and I don't mind
I don't understand
I am in your hands but I don't mind I don't mind
I am in your hands but I don't mind
'Cuz I don't understand
I am in your hands
I want you all to tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Just tell me who I am
Tell me who I am

    General CommentHmmm no comments yet? Weird...Anyway this song is amazing, I think this line sums up what it's about tho..."I'm amazed at the innocent taste of America's selfish everything!"

    General CommentCorey: This is the downhill run after the intro. It's a song that calls bullshit on the various factions in the world that are trying to nail you down and define you. It says "Stand your ground and be who you are."
