"Gently (Iowa Version)" as written by Craig Jones, James Root, Sid Wilson, Mickael Thomson, Chris Fehn, Corey Taylor, Nathan Jordison, Paul Gray and Michael Crahan....
Gently my mind escapes into the relaxing mode of pleasure
A pleasure that will take my mind off the reality of life
My past life
Life as I know it know
And whatever may come it slowly disappears
To somewhere in the back of my mind
It will remain there until I wish to retrieve it

Yes I will stay here for awhile for I need the break
A break from the pressures of life
And everything that lay in the palm of life's hands, life's hands

This mode is incredible
It's out of this world
Too bad I must always leave it
But that's life

That's life, that's life, that's life

    General CommentGently, my mind escapes to a relaxing world of pleasure. ;)

    I think this song was totally great. They were able to start off slow and relaxing and end up releasing anger and screaming, beautiful.

    General CommentMasturbation? Interesting. I like this version better, although i also prefer Corey's voice over Anders. Great song. When Anders wrote it he wrote about an escape to the spirit world, or the Umbra. Although Corey could have a different meaning behind it, which is probably why he decided to remake it.

    General CommentI love this song, I like how it starts so slow and the pace increases, but the sound is so dark... it's wicked!
