"Prelude 3.0" as written by Nathan Jonas Jordison, Craig Alan Jones, James Donald Root, Sidney George Wilson, Mickael Gordon Thomson, Michael Shawn Crahan, Corey Todd Taylor, Paul Dedrick Gray and Christopher Michael Fehn....
I don't know why
I never told you
I don't know why
I never tried

When we shed these bitter skins again

All the reasons come to life
But now it's over
Now it's over
Now it's over
Now it's over

I don't know why
You never asked me
And I don't know why
You never cared

Went we hind these little sins again

All the reasons
Have to die
But now it's over
Now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
No, no, no, no, no

    General CommentTo me this song is about a guy who is reminscing a relationship that ended a while ago and he still isn't over it. He keeps playing back the what ifs, the if he could have talked to her and helped her, but in the end he feels like the relationships a forgotten memory and is having a hard time accepting it.

    General CommentI think i may be wrong... o well

    I think this is about, along with duality (the state of being two things at once) the change in music, its about how people always doubted them.
    "I don't know why, you never asked me
    I don't know why, you never cared " here he is saying that no one ever thought he could accually sing, no one thought they could do anything but the pounding, ear blasting sounds they have, (which i love just as much as this new album).
    Don't doubt what you don't know.

    General CommentYeh it's about showing something you never have before. And saying all old 'knot "is over". A new beginning, that promises to be bigger and better than ever...

    General CommentI think this song is about Slipknot's evolution musically - shedding their "bitter skins again" about how they change musical style with each album, and hiding "little sins again" by covering the hidden hateful meanings throughout their older songs with a new style. "But now it's over" meaning they have abandoned that branch of their roots and are now looking forwards to a more 3-dimensional way of getting their messages across. It's a kickass opening, fitting for such an almost flawless album!

    And as for the stuff about IOWA, IOWA was their best album in my view

    General CommentThis song could be about suicide (I agree with lip gloss and ashes). and i dont think that from the lyrics, i think that from the NOOOOOO at the end, you can hear the pain in coreys voice you can hear it, the desperation. but you people always interperet songs by lyrics. im not saying thats a bad thing but its not open minded enough to get the full understanding of this song, yes maybe with another band but not slipknot. slipknots song can be interpreted musically too, they are reveolutionary and they dont need words to explain what the hell they are talking about. be more open minded and listen to the song, ignoring the lyrics so you can feel the song's personallity. maybe im crazy but maybe some of you know what im talking about, any true maggots anyways. their songs are so bipolar, amazing, true, and beautiful. listen to vermillion, vermillion part 2 and prelude and you can defenitly feel the song through their intruments not just their lyrics. you cant do it with jsut one insturment you need the whole damn band together and they make this massive story like thing in their songs.
