"Pieces" as written by Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and Roy Mayorga....
Can you tell me how far I've come?
(And can you tell me where I've been?)
Never stopped, knew I should've run but now I
(Don't remember where I am)
All my life I've been holding back,
consider this my last request
(I never paid for all my sins)

Open up the sun and burn my eyes
Open up your arms and save my life
I know I'll never go home again
I need a little more, I will take what I can get
I promise you everything, everything,
Just don't forget me in the end

Right in front of my face
(And in between the little voice)
This was something I couldn't have
(That just made me want it more)
Now I know the reason I was built like this,
Now I know why I am here
(I'm here for you)

Open up the sun and burn my eyes
Open up your arms and save my life
I know I'll never go home again
I need a little more, I will take what I can get
I promise you everything, everything,
Just don't forget me in the end

Open up the sun and burn my eyes
Open up your arms and save my life
I know I'll never go home again
I need a little more, I will take what I can get
I promise you everything, everything,
Just don't forget me in the end

Open up the sun and burn my eyes
Open up the sun and burn my eyes
Open up your arms and save my life

    General CommentCorey: "Pieces is about opening your heart to the world and asking for acceptance. You're asking for a reflection of how far you've come in your life."

    General CommentThere's a couple of lines in the background I can't really understand, other then that most of the rest of it should be right.
