The Shape Lyrics - Slipknot

Review The Song (5)

Too tragic to stay with you
Too static to try for you
These scars, they swallow hard
The part of the past that's hollow and dark
Too horrid to kill for you
Too sordid to die with you
Unstable as always, come down
Everything else is just dust and sound

SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEE THE SHAPE (Broken and thrown away)

I'd give it all away, come take it all away
You can't resent the fear
Somebody tell me how I got here
I'd give it all to you, come take it, it's all for you
The noise is so damn loud, but
Everything else is just dust and sound

SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEPARATE (I've lost my only way)
SEE THE SHAPE (Broken and thrown away)

I don't wanna do this anymore
Everything's shit - everything's been taken
Forsaken - gotta start it over cuz I'm hearing it
Backwards - DON'T make sense - DON'T feel better
Who's better? It's not that simple
You gotta figure it out before you make things difficult
It's not a word, it's a problem, the problem was easy
Draw your conclusions - solutions?
Anybody else wanna run?
Contorting, distorting - I am undone
One less propaganda nightmare fixture
Are you getting the picture?

In my opinion 'The Shape' is one of the best slipknot songs ever released, and is definatly the top on my most played list. I think that more people should listen to this sort of music because it can be a first step on truly understanding what direction your life is taking you. There are many reasons that people choose not to listen to slipknot, but I think if they relaxed a little and actually looked at the meaning behind the lyrics and their own enterpretation, then they would enjoy listening to the music that slipknot produce. I think they are extremly talented and deserve more credit for tracks like this

I find this song talks about a lot of Corey's life (or anybody else's life for that matter). Sometimes your past or your present is "too tragic" to stay with what you have, so you continually break away from the pain. You "seperate" from "the shape". The shape to me is a visual representation of Corey's life, and how he continues to seperate himself from his life and his surroundings. Look at it as somebody shutting down from the world, or running away. Everytime this happens, though, he becomes more and more lost, until the shape (his life) is simply "broken and thrown away".

Like the maggots above I just recently listened very good to this one, and every song I listen I realize that Slipknot is an amazing talented group, and I have to start carefully listen those songs that aren't so listened.
that chorus "I've lost my only way" is just killer.

Wow | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/22/10

I've bought all the albums, and listened to what i thought was every song, but I never noticed this one. Sicknness is right, if people would listen to it more, they would love it aswell.


Un noticed | Reviewer: Sicknness | 8/1/09

This song really has easy to relate to, and understandible lyrics but not a lot of people listen to it as much as they would probably love to. I just realized recently. Oh, and they triple track the voices at the end, for slipknot that's pretty sic.
