"Unfinished" as written by Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and Roy Mayorga....
While my hands are tied behind my back, you save the best and put me last
I've given up on giving you my heart
I fuckin' hate it, you're jaded,
Think about the times we faked it
And realize that we tore this place apart

But there's no reply from you
No matter what I do, I'll never get away from you
We're not finished

With my fingers crossed behind my back, I let your words slip through my cracks
This person you perceived is dead and gone
I fuckin' hate it, you're jaded
We can scream for the hell we created
But this time I won't let you get me wrong

'Cause there's no reply from you
No matter what I do, I'll never get away from you
There's just no reply from you
No matter what I do, I'll never get away from you

Oh, you wanna hurt me before I go, you wanna break me down
But you'll never hear me, you'll never feel the way I feel
We're not finished here

'Cause there's no reply from you
No matter what I do, I'll never get away from you
There's just no reply from you
No matter what I do, I'll never get away from you
We're not finished here

    My InterpretationOn the outside the world sees him as "over her"...on the inside he never will be. She hurt him so much that he is confused. He waits for some sort of sign from her that the love may still be there but at the same time he is exhausted with holding on. He wont let anyone see his true emotions for her but knows that without closure it will forever be "unfinished".

    General CommentCorey: 'Unfinished is the anger that comes with an unresolved relationship. It's when you've hit a wall, you're pissed off and you're not getting anything in return from the other person. It's when you're pounding your hands against a wall of silence.'

    Incorrect (above);
    Correct (below)

    This person you've deceived (perceived MAYBE), is dead and gone.
