"Dying" as written by Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and Roy Mayorga....
It's only common sense so please don't take offense
I gotta say what's on my mind
'Cause all this bitterness has made me second-guess
And I've waited all my life
You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you
I can't be your man
But here's what I don't understand

If I can't live without you
But I can't breathe when I'm with you
What are we really doing here?
I don't wanna live without you
But God only knows what I've been through
'Cause dying is all we're doing here

You leave me suffering 'til I can't feel a thing
It's all I got when I want more
If I waste one more day then they can take me away
'Cause it'll be worse than it was before
You know it's true, it isn't me, it isn't you
I can't be your man
But here's what I don't understand

If I can't live without you
But I can't breathe when I'm with you
What are we really doing here?
I don't wanna live without you
But God only knows what I've been through
'Cause dying is all we're doing here

If I can't live without you
But I can't breathe when I'm with you
What are we really doing here?
I don't wanna live without you
But God only knows what I've been through
'Cause dying is all we're doing here

Oh, if I can't live without you
But I can't breathe when I'm with you
What are we really doing, what are we really doing here?
I don't wanna live without you, I don't wanna live without you
'Cause dying is all we're doing here

    General CommentCorey: Dying is about the crossroads that you can find yourself at in a relationship. It's that moment before you throw your hands up and go 'Jesus Christ, what the Hell's going on here?'

    General Commentdamn this is a wicked song, stone sour is still kicking ass, they are a very talented band, being able to make songs so heavy then take the transition to a song like this is amazing, definitly one fo the best songs on the album

    General CommentThis song perfectly illustrates my last relationship every last word was written just perfectly as badly as i wanted to be with her and loved her she had lied to me too much and hurt me too much and i tried getting over it, and although it was possible maybe even probable that she had changed i was still too hurt and had to force myself to move on
