I allways thought the lyrics were 'I've felt the AIR rise up in me, kneel down and clear the stone of leafs. I wonder out where you cant see, inside my shell i wait and bleed' when actualy its 'I've felt the HATE rise up in me' BLAH BLAH BLAH. :P
I love this song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/10
This song is great and I've loved it since the mminute I've heard it (I was about 5 or 6 at the time ((1999-2000))) playing in my brothers room, anyway, I've always had days when I've just fealt like beating the living shit out of others because I was always picked on (and still am) and when I have those types of days when you just wanna let some anger out and beat on something until your knuckles bleed, Ill listen to the old slipknot songs (mainly this one) and when Im kinda down I'll usually listen to vermilion part 2. And I am Christian and find nothing wrong with slipknot, I find it theraputic in some if not most ways. You should try using this as therapy instead of hatin' on some cool songs :P
Wait & Bleed | Reviewer: Hannah | 3/31/10
I'm a total country fan. Its usually all i ever listen to and personally, i,ve LOVED Wait and Bleed from the second i heard it. In fact i'm listening to it right now and have been for the past 15 minutes. Its an amazing song, that lots of people (Including myself) can relate to...
This song. | Reviewer: Shawn | 3/26/10
Just listening to this and letting yourself sing to it is a great way to release anger and stress. It helped me yesterday when I wasn't feeling so... up. I just put this song up on my iTunes and just let it all out.
Religion | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/20/10
I dont think Religion has anything to do with music so as far as condeming those who listen to this the can go fuck themselfs and if you have religious parents that dont want you to listen to this for religious reasons tell them to go fuck themselfs from me :). Slipknot Rock Maggot for life.
An Interesting Theory. | Reviewer: Deceit | 2/15/10
"I felt the Hate Rise up in me, kneel down and clear the stone of leave, I wander out to where you can't see, Inside my shell I wait and bleed."
I'll relate this to my own past, if it helps.
Sometimes, I just feel this hatred, this anger, this disgusting feeling and desire to go apeshit crazy on something. When I feel like, this I try to "kneel down" or back off, "Clear the Stone of Leaves" try clear the conscious of all of these things that are covering it up. However, still the things consume us, and when we go out on our own and try to do things by the flesh we fail, and to refuse to take refuge in God or other people or whatever you want to believe that part means. Anyways, you build up a shell for yourself and you simply wait to bleed to death, and without proper precautions, you shall be consumed.
( Interpretation of verse 1 [religious] )
I wipe my sins away and look toward the light, to see it brighter this time. But everything about me happens to be a blasphemy. I did not see myself ending up like this. I'm filled with fear and I don't understood why I've ended up like this. I have to laugh just to keep myself from crying or going to extremes, and I really wish I didn't like this sin. Sometimes I feel like this life is but a dream or unreal, a memory.
Thus I go through another cycle of trying to wipe this feeling away, but in the end I once again just sit in my little shell and let myself bleed. ( Pride? Weakness? You decide. )
( Not Religious, but can be applied to God for the Defiant soul, depending on which path is taken. )
"Get outta my head cuz I don't need this"
Fairly obvious, just go away, all you voices, distractions, woes, hates, fears, even loves. Just go away with all of it. All of society and all of their opinions and judgements.
"Why didn't I see this"
I should have seen all of this coming, all the corruption and boiling cess-pools that take me in and hurt me. All of this I was blind to, but now I see so clearly.
"I am a victim, Manchurian Candidate"
All of this is the world's fault. And. I. Have. A. Right. To. Be...
"I-have-sinned-by-just Makin' my mind up and takin' yo breath away!"
And now I've made my mind up, with or against society. ( In this case, deathly against ) and that -you- ( government, community. ) hate, you can't stand.
And the hatred drives me away once more.
And now I'm gone from you.
"You haven't learned a thing"
Society is ignorant and refuses to learnt their lessons despite the hundreds of crying voices.
"I haven't changed a thing"
I am still the man I was back then, only more resolute now.
"My flesh was in my bones"
Not quite sure, but I think it has something to do with the contrast between things of The Flesh and things of The Spirit. One resides within our physical, the other within our Psyche. Draw from that whatever moral you feel.
"The pain was always free!"
Given and taken, there is a certain absolute in the sanctity of pain and its message therewith.
I wait in my shell, and I bleed.
Ending leaves me with two theories;
"I bleed because of you"
or, "I'm waiting for you, God."
Yeah, so that's it. And remember, even if that has NOTHING to do with what the original singer intended to get across, all things can be manipulated and changed into something else. ;) Sooooooo...Yeah, I love ya'll. And I hope this at least entertained you, if not shed some light on another possible viewpoints. I myself have enjoyed reading most of your comments.
Wait and Bleed=] | Reviewer: Ella | 1/17/10
Such an awesome song:) Listening to thier music makes me happy, could I just say though.. If you really look into this, actually read up on the history of Slipknot - you'll find that most of Slipknot are infact religious.. especially Corey Taylor. Thier songs may not be based on religion, thus making them christian metal, but look on thier website and vidoes of them and stuff. I know it doesnt seem like it, but they even pray together before a live show. I think it's to do with where most of them grew up - Iowa. I beleive it's a fairly religious place and although I'm not religious myself this kinda proves that it doesnt matter about your religion/culture. The music you listen to does not have to depend on what religion you are, if it offends you - don't listen to it=]
Wait and Bleed | Reviewer: Chris | 1/14/10
Slipknot are not emo. "Emo" is supposed to be a type of hardcore punk from the 80s (Rites of Spring is a good example of it) and modern-emo is pop crap like My Chemical Romance and Fall Out Boy.
Slipknot are a Alternative Metal/Nu Metal band.
Slipknot rocks. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/29/09
This song is awesome. So i'm a 15 year old teenage girl, and I believe in God, and i listen to metal, heavy metal, alternative as well as like good old rock. I mean, i disagree with people who look down on catholic or christian teenagers who listen to this kind of music, after all it's just music, and usually the best part about it, especially with slipknot is that you can relate to it when you're angry and alone and shit, and personally it calms me down. I think that it doesn't matter whether you believe in God or not, it's like totally irrelevant to music, anyone can enjoy it and if you do, that's awesome. But hey, i don't think we should judge those who don't like this kind of music anyway, because it's not their bad if they have a different taste or whatever. It's only if they start to you know put it down in front of you and stuff, it's like fuck, if you don't like it, fair enough, don't listen to it.
I don't know, just my opinion, i'm off to listen to more good music now. :)
Wait and Bleed | Reviewer: Jazza | 12/1/09
This song, to me, means so much more than is humanly possible to explain. It's like waiting on an opportunity you've longed for, only to realise its been and gone. But you still wait and hope it'll come back, and, sadly, sometimes those things to come back around.
My favorite Knot song | Reviewer: Bear | 10/18/09
Some of my favorite lyrics...great tro listen to when I'm depressed...kind of gives that feeling that I know other people hurt sometimes to...feels good to connect sort of vicariously
By the way, in the chorus I believe it is
"I felt the air rise up in me"
not the hate rise up...Amazing song!
idiots | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/09
Im religious not emo at all.. i look normal athletic middle class kid and slipknot is just a good way to express yourself and get you past hard times and vent. in no way does this make you emo or far from God. you guys are fucking idiots
i agree with the person below me
*facepalm* | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/28/09
I just don't understand people on either side most of the time. I'm Christian, very much so, but I like this song. Everyone has bad, pissed off days, and music helps you to work through your shit.
Whether or not your believe in God, that's your choice. I would definitely not take anyone seriously who thought a lyrics website was a good place to evangelize. Please don't lump all religious people in with idiots like that.
