"Not Long for This World" as written by and Jim Root Sid Wilson....
Cutting or scratching
They scar the same
The angle is off, the edges are soft
The mark remains
I know I'm bitter
And full of rage
You would be too, what I've been through
Knowledge is a difficult age

So decide
Tell me how I'm gonna die
'Cause I've already gone away
Decide
Tell me how you loved a lie
It wasn't really hard to see
Hard to see
Not long for this world!

Carving or biting
We bleed for keeps
Out of control, into the cold
Hell repeats
God, I'm starving
Spreading me thin
Buying a story
My soul is for sale
Trust is such an arrogant thing

So decide
Tell me how I'm gonna die
'Cause I've already gone away
Decide
Tell me how you loved a lie
It wasn't really hard to see
Hard to see
Not long for this world!
Not long for this world!

I know the shit you ate
There's nothing mellow in the
Drama you live and breathe
You like your secrets to be
Kept in the family
You don't get credit for your
Rare good behavior, go be a savior
You don't seem to get what I'm saying
And I'm sick and tired of explaining
Goodnight, goodbye, good luck
There's nothing worse than a
Ghoul manifesto, I'm not impressed though

The greatest conclusion
That I ever had
Was when I woke up
And said, "that's enough!"
Living never felt so bad
You don't accept it
And I don't care
Bury yourself
Above all your guilt
When you're ready it'll be there

So decide
Tell me how I'm gonna die
'Cause I've already gone away
Decide
Tell me how you loved a lie
It wasn't really hard to see
Hard to see
Not long for this world!
Not long for this world!
Not long for this world!

I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world!
I was not long for this world!
I was not long for this world!
I was not long for this world!
