"Let's Be Honest" as written by Corey Taylor, James Root, Josh Rand, Shawn Economaki and Roy Mayorga....
Oh disaster, I know I'm long overdue
There's no answer, I know I shouldn't have listened to you
Before I let you decide, you have to know that I lied
I only do what I do

Let's be honest, I watched you walk away
You went off to find, anything else, anything less
On your own

Oh the Karma, I know it's coming for me
Oh no harm done, except as far as the eyes can see
The only issue for me, as cavalier as it seems
Is how you handle extremes, you never bother
Before I let you destroy, the very world I enjoy
You gotta do what you do

Let's be honest, I watched you walk away
You went off to find, anything else, anything less
I guess
I'm only honest, I'm only here to say, yeah
You've been gone so long, everything else, is already less
On your own

I'm a slave, I will beg
All I want is something better, something that is safe
You can say, you will stay
But I know fucking better, you will never change

Let's be honest, I watched you walk away
You went off to find, anything else, anything less
I guess
I'm only honest, I'm only here to say, yeah
You've been gone so long, everything else, is already less, I guess
Let's be honest, I watched you walk away
You've been gone so long, everything else, is already less
On your own
On your own
On your own
On your own

    General CommentThis is a heavy song. I am really digging this one a lot. Might be my favorite off their new album.

    General CommentCorey: This is in the same vein as Dying. It's the point where you say 'Can we just live with each other? Can we figure this out, please? Just talk to me. I don't care what the Hell you say to me, just be honest with me.'
