I'm cold, I'm ugly
I'm always confused by everything
I can stare into a thousand eyes
But every smile hides a bold-faced lie

It itches, it seethes, it festers and breathes
My heroes are dead, they died in my head
Thin out the herd, squeeze out the pain
Something inside me has opened up again

Thoughts of me exemplified
All the little flaws I have denied
Forget today, forget whatever happened
Everyday I see a little more of overall deficiencies
I'm nothing short of being one complete catastrophe

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?

I save all the bullets from ignorant minds
Your insults get stuck in my teeth as they grind
Way past good taste, on our way to bad omens
I decrease, while my symptoms increase

God what the fuck is wrong
You act like you knew it all along
Your timing sucks, your silence is a blessing

All I ever wanted out of you was
Something you could never be
Now take a real good look at
What you've fucking done to me

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?

Gimme any reason why I'd need you, boy
Gimme any reason why I'd need you
Gimme any reason why I'd need you
Gimme any reason not to fuck you up
Gimme any reason why I'd need you, bitch
Gimme any reason why I'd need you
Gimme any reason why I'd need you
Gimme any reason not to fuck you up

I see you in me, I see you in me
I see you in me, I see you in me
I see you in me, I see you in me
I see you in me, I see you in me

I keep my scars from prying eyes
Incapable of ever knowing why
Somebody breathe, I've got to have an answer
Why am I so fascinated by
Bigger pictures, better things
But I don't care what you think
You'll never understand me

What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
What the hell did I do to deserve all of this?
Fuck!

    General CommentI think that this song is about being really depressed and hating yourself and just feeling like your being eatin alive by your mind. Then people saying they knew you where upset but now only bring it up that its too late. Also maybe hes trying to hide his past or feelings from others.... "I keep my scars from prying eyes" But whatever the song means it's definitly my favorite song by Slipknot!

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is how the person's parents have affected him in such a way that he has grown social problems. "My heroes are dead, they died in my head". Most children usually see their parents as "heroes" so that's how the parents come into the song as well as:
    "Gimme a reason why i need you, boy" (dad)
    "Gimme a reason why i need you, bitch" (mum)

    And the when Corey says "I see you in me"
    this shows how the person is blood related to the people who have made him "this way"

    General Commenti think that this song is about him not believing in god, or maybe hes mad at him or something. "God what the F**K is wrong, you act like you knew it all along..." and again in the song Liberate, where he says "My god-fraud" he must be pissed!

    General Commenti think this song is relatable for many teens... i think it's about someone who feels they can't live any longer, are depressed and are haunted by themself as well as others. that's what i think anyways. it's a kick ass song!!!

    General Commenti think that this song is talking about how people arnt what they seem....."I can stare into a thousand eyes
    But every smile hides a bold-faced lie" in seeing this he starts to realize that things are falling apart and he notices the "overall deficiancies" and has opened up a part of his mind that destroys things he onced believed in. He discovers that he cant really rely on anybody......

    General Commentwhat this song means to me is it is a song about all the problems with the world and how parents critisize him hence "i save all the bullets from ignorant minds your insults get stuck in ym teeth as they grind" he is saving his kmusic for all those who are really wothy and true fans and fuck all who hate him is pretty much what it means to me cuz i feel the same way with my band
    later
