vermillion | Reviewer: m. | 4/26/09

i really love this song, i can really relate to it right now. i think its about falling in love with someone so much and not realising that they are not who you thought they were. but you cant leave because you still see them differently in your mind. "She isnt real, i cant make her real". he cant make the person he loves into the person he imagined. "i wont let this build up inside of me" he wants to get mad at her but he cant, because he is still infatuated with the person he fell so badly in love with

stay (sic) maggots, love slipknot

crazy how this happens | Reviewer: Viveanne | 4/27/09

Slipknot in whole is amazing, like everyone has said, capturing emotions of people of all ages.
Everyone will interprit every song differently. To each person, a new meaning, when me and my bf we're first, "not offically dating and just friends" this was a song that we both grew attached to because we aren't soposed to love each other...
idk this song hit's close to home, I never thought a song could move someone so instantanously..

Vermillion | Reviewer: MEME | 11/21/08

From post before :"“Vermillion” is the word for a vivid red to reddish orange colour – and red is typically the colour of anger, passion, lust, power, danger..."

Vermillion is red, and Coreys wife (which died :( ) was called Scarlet which is another word of red. So some people mean that the song is about his wife and how i feels about the way it ended.

Totally (sic) song, simply just love it..

My 2 cents... | Reviewer: N x | 11/19/08

I think this song is about the duality of being in love, and how all the amazing elements of being in love – the powerful attraction, they way you treasure and feel for that person – can mutate when that love goes wrong, in to emotions which are ugly but just as powerful.

He loves this girl and is intoxicated by her:
They share a fixed and crazy attraction. He makes her nervous, perverse (I think he means this in the best way ;) We all know what it's like to experience this passionate, intense surge of emotions when you really fall for someone, and are so sensually stimulated by them. She is everything and more. Solemn, hypnotic. She is home to him.

But this overwhelming crazy love is not working out: the stress is astounding, and she's the only one who makes him sad (I love the way Corey Taylor sings this line, it gives me goosebumps).

Love is such a potent complex emotion, it empowers you in that feeling so strongly for someone can be amazing, but it opens and weakens you to being hurt by them. “I’m a slave and I am a master, no restraints and unchecked collectors.” He doesn't say hates her, he says "She is something IN ME, that I despise" - he hates the effect she has on him, that the love he has for he makes him weak to her. He still wants and needs her and hates himself for it. “I exist through my need to self-oblige”.

He wills himself to not “let this build up inside of me”. His ideas of their potential and how perfect they could be together are much different from the reality; “she isn’t real, can’t make her real...”

“Vermillion” is the word for a vivid red to reddish orange colour – and red is typically the colour of anger, passion, lust, power, danger...

I agree | Reviewer: Cyrsynik | 10/27/08

""this song is powerful, each lyrics has cryptic hint of how it really feels to fall for someone and to find they are lying, and what you thought they were wasnt real..
i think this song means, he was so in love with this girl that he felt like she was perfect and that he didnt need anything but her, only to find out that who he thought she was, was really just a lie. "i wont let this build up inside of me" shows perfectly, he wants to be mad at her but he wont cause he loves the version of her he created in his mind. but he comes to a realization that she isnt real and that he cant make her real, but it hurt so much to let her go..and he hates that he let her get into his heart ...because she is just a liar....

i kno all this it is because i feel exactly like this right now!!!!!!""

Totally agree.....it hurts, more than anyone knows....

Your all wrong | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/6/08

I heard its about a true story.
A man who was so in love with this girl and wanted her to come home so badly he went crazy and murdered a bunch of different girls. If that girl had her eyes, he murdered her and took her eyes! He would do so with every single body part untill he had "her" entirely sewn together and after that he goes insane because he realize shes not real and he won't ever have her back.

Wife | Reviewer: Nick | 8/31/08

This song has a very strong meaning and it is about Corey's wife and how they were suffering through their marriage. Vermillion Part 2 is about his wife leaving him but the music video makes it look like she dies the body signifies his wife. Duality is about him coping with the pain of her leaving. "I push my fingers into my eyes, its the only thing that slowly stops the ache." Before i forget is about him trying to forget about her.

yes...! | Reviewer: Angel | 5/20/08

I went through all of these reviews and I understood throughly of the one that, the person justin had written it seemed like he had took his time and went through the song...its exactly how i percevied it in my mind...i love slipknot and have followed them for years, have lived by their lyrics and well at least someone can exlpain their stuff well..

Sexxxxy time | Reviewer: Chad :) | 3/12/08

I sound just like him when i sing.
But besides that
this song talks about this girl that he wants and has but he can't look into her eyes without looking away.
Its hard to say what caught his attention but what ever it was it must have been crazy insane.,

mmm sex.. | Reviewer: FlufKzyx | 3/2/08

sounds like he boned some groupie and fell for her... she isnt real. No shit..

I get nervous perverse when i see her its worse.. but the stress is astounding. mmm someone likes it rough.

sounds like an addiction to sex. Carve my name in my face to recognize.. Hes a slave; a master.. she exists through his need to self oblige. she is something in me that I despise. Maybe mommy told him he could do better...

Anyways.. so much for chemical milk. I cant be as far off as anyone else. All I did was applied something thats happened to me. I made her out to be something way more... "The Walking Tar"


cool song | Reviewer: true maggot | 2/28/08

i like this song a lot. it makes me think of someone i like but she got taken away y some other bo because i never told her how i felt. this song makes me remember the fellings i had toward that girl. im 13 and you might think im stupid for sayin these things but its just the way i feel. this has to be one of the bes songs slipknot ever wrote

well... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/2/08

Just in my opinion, I think it's about someone he was attracted to and, in a way, fell for. But his feelings were never requited. Then, comes to the realization that no matter what he does, they won't be together and she won't return his feelings. So he decides he has to erase her altogether, just denying she ever even existed.
