Dead Memories Lyrics - Slipknot

Review The Song (46)



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.

the other me is gone | Reviewer: Sandeep | 3/20/14

It reminds me of my ex lover, who was with me for four months and taught me a lesson of my life, though it was not a good one. I cried day n night for her, praying all the time for her to come back in my life but it didn't happen and it brings me back to the reality that when someone is gone, it will never come back and its just left with dead memories in your heart. For some its very easy to move on and people like us who are writing blogs here, its quite hard

Means Everything | Reviewer: z546 | 1/8/13

To me, this song means almost everything. I broke up with my gf about 5 months ago, and although I think it was the best decision for me at the time, it hurt me so bad to do it. She moved on...to date my ex-best friend (you can imagine how that turned out). Now I have nothing but dead memories in my heart.

Traded my emotions for a CONTRACT to commit | Reviewer: Chris | 5/5/11

everyone knows you wont make it big time unless you sell your soul. and yes that is very real..
"traded my emotions for a CONTRACT to commit" this album is about him going against the very real devil inside of him im being serious read all the lyrics for this entire album and youll see that each individual song is actually peiced together to make a story dont just bang your head to the beat pay atention to what there saying in there songs. i love you corey youll make it man.

<3 | Reviewer: KatieGoesRawr | 2/6/11

"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."

This reminds me of my ex-boyfriend. I committed to him 100% and when we broke up, i could only move on so much because i had become so attached. Thats what this song mean to me. :/


countless times a day | Reviewer: joe | 1/4/11

There was a time when I felt dead. Like breathing but rotting on the inside.
"The other me is gone.
Now I don't know where I belong."
Something like that.
I ended up listening to this song for countless times. It was very powerful song (at first I didn't really pay attention to the lyrics, I just listened to their music).
Maybe I listened to it for fifty times that day.

nice song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/20/10

this song sounds so awesome i memorized it and i cant get it outta my head this is the best metal band ive ever heard of.This song makes sense too if you watch the video hes digging up dead memories out of his heart and it has an awesome tune. Dead memories in my heeeaaaarrrttt.

how i see it | Reviewer: justice | 11/5/10

i think the song is about someone who want to be in a relationship,but they cant because there past is to painful that they don't want to put that someone they love thourgh the pain they have sufferd.

What it means to me, | Reviewer: R!ddle... | 8/22/10

I love this song because to me, it reminds me of a guy I met this summer, I really liked him and now I can't stop thinking about him although, I didn't get his number or email and he doesn't have facebook. So the chances are I'll never see him again
"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... "
Makes me think of him and my situation because I can't go back to see him and I wish I had more time <3
Ik thats not the meaning of the song but that's what it means to me.
Thank you Slipknot. <3

dead memories | Reviewer: sloth | 7/27/10

as of now this is one of the most great song from slipknot.. for me the song is about being abandon in a place were there's no one left for you...being vanish in a place were there's nothing but pain lies and lies...
