Left Behind Lyrics - Slipknot

Review The Song (122)



I've known
Faces that have disappeared in time
Find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime
All my friends have pictures made to make you cry
I've seen this and wondered
What I've done to calcify...

(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away
(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
sponsored links
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away

I can't stand to see
Your thalidomide robot face
i Don't even try it!You had to be a liar just to
Infiltrate me-I'm still drowning!

(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away
(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(i come towards you)
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away

Take this away
Take this away
I can feel it on my mouth
I can taste you on my fingers
I can hear you like the Holy Ghost
And kill you if you get too close

(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away
(I ignore you)
As i close my eyes,
I feel it all slipping away
(I come towards you)
We all got left behind,
We let it all slip away

We let it all slip away (Repeated)4x
We let it all slip,
We let it all slip away
Slip away(fading),(5x)
(Faint Laughter)

what???? | Reviewer: slipknot=awesome | 6/19/13

After reading through the lyrics to "Left Behind", i have realised that Slipknot DO NOT promote satanism in any way, shape or form. The lyrics are about when Corey Taylor was homeless, and the people he met along the way, he is also saying that they have dissappered in time, if people will just think before they speak and maybe try reading through lyrics to other Slipknot songs, such as "Snuff" and "All Hope Is Gone" they are about going through personal lows and politics. READ THE LYRICS!!!!

what is this? | Reviewer: jennymontanno | 12/11/12

Why do people thibk that slipknot are satanist? And if they are whoo gives a fuck? I really dont see why satanism is frowned upon so much and why people think that satabist are bad people. Slipknot ate a freakibg awesome band and the rule. The songs have such a better reason and vocabulary than all the shitty radio songs. It fuckibg russels my jimmies wheb they get judged. Just saying

prayer | Reviewer: Joey jordison iz epic!! :) | 7/1/12

don't worry "the aristocrat", i will keep you in prayer. just don't bash on christianity because you don't like it. but i'll pray for you. in the mea time,
1) it's about corey taylor hating his childhood.
2) stay (sic)!

Idiocy | Reviewer: The Aristocrat | 4/8/12

So, I don't know what I have a bigger problem with. The christians trying to shove religion down my throat. Or the disrespectful prepubescent 10 year old self proclaimed 'magguts 4lyf' with the piss poor punctuation wishing the death of the slightly crazy religious people. It is not about religion but about corey taylors time as a homeless forgotten person saying society left them behind. His freinds had horrible lives and stories and it talks about how no one would care whether he or they died or not. That is complete bullshit about the rapture. If heaven is full of people like that, I might just make an official conversion to Buddhism.

Stop the fightin | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/23/12

It kinda sucks how the Non religous and religous have to fight. I too am a religous maggot but im not here to convert or fight with anyone. Religon is just a belief, a life choice, so what if you dont agree with it hurting other maggots will get you nowhere, as for the other religous guys. Take it down a notch, it sounds like your trying to pass a law. in my eyes you loose nothing being religous. No one can say if there is god or not thats why its a belief. We will find out if he exist or not with our death, im in no hurry to die, i live for the past, present and future. Honestly it sickens me seeing you lot fight like childeren about whos right or wrong, you wont know untill you die, religous should worry about the possibility of rotting in the ground and the haters of god should worry about the possibility of hell existing. EQUALITY PEOPLE, RESPECT EACH OTHERS OPINIONS DONT HATE ON IT. And always think about not being right, no one is perfect. God bless slipknot and i dont care who has a go at me for saying that.

Seven Deadly Sins | Reviewer: Rileytheripper | 12/14/11

You guys obviously haven't read Corey's book, He hates religion and everything it stands for. So stop comparing his songs to that religious crap that has been earf**ked into your f**king heads by some dumb f**k promising you a better life in the afterlife while you should be enjoying life right now like I am enjoying listening to this music. Stay (Sic) maggots!

well fxck your shxt | Reviewer: anotheranon | 11/9/11

you fxcking christian fxgs are everything bad in the world, please die soon, cause this is what you want right? die and fly in heaven with your stupid dumbxss nxggermagician jesus christ. you fxcking lolipops, there is no life after you freaking die! open your eyes! you just sheeps, slaves for a church which only cares about how much money you give them!

Left behind by corey himself | Reviewer: Vaske | 6/16/11

corey said that left behind is a song about the people he met when he was homeless he shared every moment with them and later...those faces just disappeared in time in future and he would never seen them again...he left behind his past life..and everything in it.

Do some research before your comments!!! | Reviewer: Bitter_end | 6/7/11

Could you please do a little research about the song and found out what is it all about before going around with stupid comments. There is a video of Corey explaning this song and what it represents :/

its grate when people get diferent personal meanings from songs. | Reviewer: zedi-tengu | 5/27/11

but i think a lot of you are missing the piont, this song is clealy about child neglect and child abuse of the darkest nature, "find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime" i think this lyric has something to do with disposing of dead bodies mabey? "all my friends have pictures ment to make you cry" this can meen a few things, but i cant find a religiouse meaning."i cant stand to see youre filidamide robot face" THINK ABOUT IT "you had to be a lyer just to infiltrate me im still drowning" ..think about if this song is about christianaty then its a not a possitive one. o.k. lets say the devil is the one infilltrating, i tink someone as intellagent as Cory 1: probably doesnt blame the devil for all the evil in the world, and 2: even if he did he would find a more creative way to portray lucifer. i ignor you, life of torture how do you people think this is about the rapture, im gessing you are all americans. but the lines that really clarify the abuse aspect "take this away"x2 in a weak pethic complaining tone " i can feel you on my mouth i can taste you on my fingers" "compare you to the holy ghost and kill you if i catch you" yer this really talking about jeases#sarcastic tone# if you get a religiouse meaning from this fair doo's. But this song IS about neglect and abuse.

unbelieveble! xD! | Reviewer: Toru | 2/5/11

ok. is kind of weird how you can get a christian message from slipknot songs so yes, i kind of agree with you, and yes im a christian 2 but i still liking the band dont care what they are but still...ACCEPT JESUSCHRIST OR YOU'LL BURN IN HELL!!!

Separation | Reviewer: Zombie | 1/17/11

Whenever I listen to this song, I think of how everyone changes, but you somehow become the "weird" isolated one. You drift from everyone and become separate. How beautiful, expressive and true to the feeling.

judging | Reviewer: MattyOH | 11/14/10

i dont entirely see how people can even pull out the religion card on this song. depending on who you are and where you come from this song is what you make it as are alot of slipknot's songs which is what makes them such a special band. for me the song is simply about someone who never really had all the things a "normal" person is considered to have and feels as if has been wronged and through the song you can see how he or she developed a personality to it.

judging... | Reviewer: x0xiled1 | 9/24/10

me personaly i find this song completely awesome and like the the rest of slipknots stuff actually MEANS something unlike those shitty RnB bands thats rap or sing their soft-cock songs that either mean nothing or the same crap... me personaly i listen to anything witha good beat but ive ben a slipknot fan since potty training and nothings gonna change that but as these lyrics have religious meanings im an atheist but i believe that no one of any religion deserves to be judged from christian to satanist the all have their points and most are good but yeah just makin a point...
