Go!

Stapled shut, inside an outside world and I'm
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catastrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me upon all your sordid little insurrections
I've got no time to lose, and I'm just caught up in all the cattle

Fray the strings
Throw the shapes
Hold your breath
And listen

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

I'm ripped across the ditch, and settled in the dirt and I'm
I wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
I've got no right to win, I'm just caught up all the battles

Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
And listen

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

My end
It justifies my means
All I have to do is delay
I'm given time to evade
The end of the road is my end
It justifies my means
All I have to do is delay
I haven't time to evade
The end of the road!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh!

    General Commenti got these from black-goat.com the OFFICAL slipknot website

    Stapled shut - Inside an outside world
    And I'm sealed in tight - Bizarre but right at home
    I'm claustrophobic - Closing in
    And I'm catastrophic - Not again
    I'm smeared across the page and doused in gasoline
    I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene
    Catch me up in all your sordid little insurrections
    I've got no time to lose - I'm just caught up in all the cattle

    Fray the strings... Throw the shapes... Hold your breath... Listen

    I am a world before I am a man
    I was a creature before I could stand
    I will remember before I forget
    Before I forget that

    I'm ripped across the ditch and settled in the dirt
    And I wear you like a stitch, yet I'm the one who's hurt
    Pay attention to your twisted little indiscretions
    I've got no right to win - I'm just caught up in all the battles

    Locked in clutch... Pushed in place... Hold your breath... Listen

    I am a world before I am a man
    I was a creature before I could stand
    I will remember before I forget
    Before I forget that

    My end, it justifies my means
    All I ever do is delay
    My every attempt to evade
    The end of the road and my end
    It justifies my means
    All I ever do is delay
    My every attempt to evade
    The end of the road

    I am a world before I am a man
    I was a creature before I could stand
    I will remember before I forget
    Before I forget that
