Slipknot Metabolic Lyrics

Last updated: 01/26/2013 01:10:31 PM

Gone - I couldn't murder your promise
Right before my eyes
The revolutions of my psychosis
Kept me outta the way

Once - inside - all I hold is ash...

Fail - suppressing every feeling
I'm in so much pain
I have every fuckin' right to hate you
I can't take it!

The hardest part was knowing that I could never be you
Now all I do is sit around and wish I could forget you

My demise - I took a life worth living and
Made it worth a mockery
I deny - I fold, but they keep on coming
(Stop) I'm always ready to die
But you're killing me

Who are you to me? Who am I to you?
Is this a lesson in nepotistic negligence?
By default, you are my only link to the outside
Psychosomatic suicide
Where were you when I was down?
Can you show me a way...
To face everyday with this face - goodbye

My demise - I took a life worth living and
Made it worth a mockery
I deny - I fold, but they keep on coming
(Stop) I'm always ready to die
But you're killing me

When I blur my eyes, they make the whole
World breath - I see you fucking me
And I am absolutely controlling every urge
To mutilate - the one and only answer
So much for memories...
I wanna dress in your insecurities
And be the perfect human - I'm through
I'm out-stretched out for all to loathe
Here we go - the ultimate irony

Metabolic | Reviewer: Adam | 1/25/13

Very intense song. I just listened to it. Iowa just started. Great song too.
Great song, in my opinion, one of their best. Corey Taylor said it is about his dad. So the song does make sense when you know that.

Slipknot's finest. | Reviewer: Marko | 7/16/12

This is definitely one of Slipknot's finest songs. Kind of like 'No Life", "Scissors", "The Nameless" and "Til We Die" this song goes unrecognised by many Slipknot fans. Maybe because they aren't 'singles' but the fact of the matter is that many songs like "Metabolic" from Slipknot are 'single' material yet are unheard of by many Slipknot fans. If you liked Metabolic chances are you're going to like the songs I've listed above, give em a listen, won't hurt. Keep rocking! <3 from Serbia.

Fuck yeah! | Reviewer: Kurty | 7/12/07
