Slipknot Dead Memories Lyrics

Last updated: 03/19/2014 07:13:53 PM

Sitting in the dark, I can't forget.
Even now, I realize the time I'll never get
Another story of the bitter pills of fate
I can't go back again
I can't go back again
But you asked me to love you, and I did.
Traded my emotions for a contract to commit
And when I got away, I only got so far
The other me is dead
I hear his voice inside my head
And we were never alive
And we won't be born again
But I'll never survive

With dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart


You told me to love you, and I did.
Tied my soul into a knot and got me to submit
So when I got away, I only kept my scars
The other me is gone
Now I don't know where I belong
And we were never alive
And we won't be born again
But I'll never survive

With dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart

Dead visions in your name
Dead fingers in my veins
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart
Dead memories in my heart

"Dead Memories" is a song by American metal band Slipknot. The song was released as the third single from their fourth album All Hope Is Gone. The track was released on December 1, 2008. The music video for the single was directed by P. R. Brown and Shawn Crahan. The video premiered on MTV2 on October 25, 2008. When performed live, Jim Root performs the solo. Unlike most Slipknot songs, there are no screamed vocals.

During album reviews for All Hope Is Gone, "Dead Memories" was remarked upon for its melody and accessibility. Reviewing for Blabbermouth.net, Ryan Ogle says that the track shows Slipknot's diversity, he went on to state it is "well-written and melodious". Total Guitar's writer Nick Cracknell compared "Dead Memories" to the works of Alice in Chains. Dan Martin of The Guardian compared it to "Enter Sandman" by Metallica and went on to say, "[it] is so listenable it's almost conventional." However, Jim Kaz of IGN said that the track almost detracts from the intensity of the album, stating, "it's at this point the band loses a little momentum." In the same vein Ogle of Blabbermouth.net says that it's a track that "lack[s] the white hot fire that allows the rest of the disc to burn our asses." It is the band's second-highest single, behind "Snuff" which peaked at #2, on the Mainstream Rock tracks chart peaking at number 3. However on the Active Rock chart, it peaked at #1.
