"The House Of Gold & Bones" as written by and Corey Taylor Josh Rand....
Oh this is what it's coming to
Another Waterloo
You wanna put me underground
'Cause I'm overused
Giving up as you're pulling me down
I will make you come unglued

You can cover me in subtleties
What an effigy
I can fake it 'cause you'll never be the real to me
I'm innocent, I know I'm near the end
But if I can't understand I will never win

The more I know my mind
The more I leave you all behind
Living in the shadow of doubt
I'll never obey, but I'll always decide

Oh my heart survived
I gotta do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones

Oh you're the epitome
Of all the shit in me
And I'm surrounded by the people I will never be
Either way I've got nothing to prove
To a son of a bitch like you
Well this is hell and I wanted it
But I'm an idiot
It's a phase 'cause I know I'm illegitimate

Kill it
I wanna see it
I wanna feel it
I will be here forever

The more I know my mind
The more I leave you all behind
Living in the shadow of doubt
I'll never obey, and I'll always decide

Oh my heart survived
I gotta do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones

The more I know my mind
The more I leave this world behind
Living in the shadow of doubt
I'm already gone, I'm already alive

Oh my heart survived
I gotta do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones

Oh my heart survived
I gotta do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones
In the House of Gold and Bones
In the House of Gold and Bones

    General CommentI was wondering if this album was about Corey's personal struggles and after the Waterloo reference, I'm certain of it.

    General Commentwater loo = Waterloo
    Giving up that your pulling me down = Giving up and you're pulling me down
    You can cover me in sovilties = You can cover me in subtleties, no idea WTF "sovilties" is
    What an apogee = What an effigy
    To a song of a bitch like you = To a son of a bitch like you

    also forgot to put the RU486 chant at the beginning

    General CommentWhat gets me on this is "RU486" is actually Mifepristone. Which is a abortion pill that ends a pregnancy that is less than 7 weeks along.
