"Cut the Cord" as written by Bob Marlette and Brent Smith....
(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom follow me)
(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom)
Cut it!

(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom follow me)
(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom)

Let me tell you how I'm vicious
Not pass aggressive
I got my finger on the pulse
Staring straight into a hole and I get it
And I'm a savage
It's automatic
I've got a way of making noise,
The power to destroy, no static

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to 10
Just count to 10

I'm gonna make it rain
So ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness (witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, Cut the Cord!

(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom follow me) Cut the cord!
(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom)

You gotta feel courage
Embrace possession
If it was easier to shatter
Everything that ever mattered
But it's not, cause it's all obsession

Be a fighter
Back home desire
Complicated and it stings
But we both know what it means
And it's time to get real and inspired

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to 10
Just count to 10, just count to 10

I'm gonna make it rain
So ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness (witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, Cut the Cord!
Cut it!
Cut it!

Cause victory is all you need
So cultivate and plant the seed
Hold your breath and count to 10
Just count to 10

I'm gonna make it rain
So ring the bell
I know it all too well
Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
Can I get a witness (witness)
Cause agony brings no reward
For one more hit and one last score
Don't be a casualty, Cut the Cord!
Don't be a casualty, Cut the Cord!

(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom follow me) Cut the cord
(Freedom la la la)
(Freedom follow me)

    General CommentAs said by Brent Smith:
    "...and in your truest moment of weakness...When everyone and everything has betrayed you and evil and hatred has wrapped itself around your mind, body and soul...This is the song that you play...This is the statement to the world that you will not give up, you will not give in, and you refuse to fail!!! Now is your time...to "CUT THE CORD".

    Also:
    "'Cut The Cord' is a wake up call reminding us all that we can control our own destiny by finding the courage and tenacity to destroy whatever it is that's holding us back. The process may not be pretty or perfect or even easy, but absolutely necessary. The song is brutally honest and unapologetic, which is what Shinedown has always been."

    General CommentThis is drug addiction and the recovery thought and effort as I read the lyrics..

    I'm gonna make it rain, so ring the bell
    I know it all too well
    Switchblade on the edge of your wrist
    Can I get a witness? (witness)
    'Cause agony brings no reward
    For one more hit and one last score
    Don't be a casualty, cut the cord

    (Freedom, la la la la)
    (Freedom, follow me) cut the cord
    (Freedom, la la la la)
    (Freedom)

    You gotta feel courage
    Embrace possession
    If it was easier to shatter everything that ever mattered
    But it's not, because it's your obsession
    Be a fighter, backbone, desire
    Complicated and it stings, (but we both know what it means)
    And it's time to get real and inspired

    Now victory is all you need
    So cultivate and plant the seed
    Hold your breath and count to ten, just count to ten, just count to ten

    Addiction and ignorance of the effect is how slaves are made according to many old books on humanity.. The psychological effect is something to be observed and the society structure that provides the trap.
    Freedom is an appropriate analogy to cut the cord.
