"Skeptic" as written by and Chris Fehn Anders Colsefni....
Only when the fates, Commiserate
Do we get a little taste as unique
The Libertine – Know what I mean?
Hiroshima on a Sunday
You had a gift, you were a gift
But there’s always a goddamn catch
Blessing and a curse , You made it work
The Universe seems so much smaller

Legend, Bastards, Best friend, why?
Why do the limits have to realign?
Hero, Martyr, Mystery, God
He was the best of us

The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you

Never be the same, I want the blame
To be assigned to the guiltiest one
It can't be done, because the son
Was the victim they arrested
I'm so fucking pissed at all of this
You gotta know that you are sorely missed
Miracles are real, They help you he
They make you feel like things will get better

Father, brother, scapegoat, why?
Why did we only get this time?
Fighter, icon, Skeptic, God
Stop taking the best of us

I won't let you disappear
I will keep your soul alive if I can't have you here
History may have its share
Of lunatics and stars
But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you
The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you

Skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic, skeptic

Where am I supposed to begin?
I’m killing for the karma again
Feed the meter in the machine
Believing it’s the way to be seen

Gone, are we alone?
Gone, are we alone?
Gone, are we alone?
Gone, we're not alone

I can't let you disappear
I will keep your soul alive if I can't have you heal
We were meant to be Kings
Rule the masses, run the risk
And keep our systems clean
History may have its share
Of lunatics and stars
But the world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you
The world will never see another crazy motherfucker like you
The world will never know another man as amazing as you

The world will never see (will never see)
Another crazy motherfucker like you (like you)
Like you (like you)
Like you

    My InterpretationThis song is definitely a tribute to Paul Gray.

    My OpinionCheesy hook and totally against Slipknot's usual lyrical style. Reminds me of The Nameless though with the quick, accurate call and response vocals between vocalists...though not as well done.

    I understand it's a tribute song, but...not Slipknot at their best, not by far..
