The Pulse Of The Maggots Lyrics - Slipknot



Review The Song (111)


This is the year where hope fails you
The test subjects runs the experiment
And the bastard you know, is the hero you hate
But cohesing is possible if we try
Theres no reason, theres no lesson
No time like the present, Tell me right now
What have you got to lose, what have you got to lose
Except your soul... who's with us?!

I fight for the unconventional
My right, and its unconditional
I can only, be as real as I can
The disadvantage is
I never knew the plan
This isn't just a way to be a martyr
I can't, walk alone any longer
I fight, for the ones who can't fight
And if I lose, at least I tried

We-we are the new diabolic
We-we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We-we are the pulse of the maggots

I won't-be the inconsequential
I won't-be the wasted potential
I can make it-as severe as I can
Until you realize
You'll never take a stand
It isn't, just a one-sided version
We've dealt, with a manic subversion
I won't, let the truth be perverted
And I won't leave another victim deserted

We-we are the new diabolic
We-we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We-we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand? (yes)(x4)

Say it again say it again (we won't die) (x8)

We fight until no one can fight us
We live, and no one can stop us
We pull when we're pushed too far
And the advantage is
The bottom line is
We never, had to fight in the first place
We only, had to spit back at their face
We won't, walk alone any longer
What doesn't kill us only makes us stronger

We-we are the new diabolic
We-we are the bitter bucolic
If I have to give my life you can have it
We-we are the pulse of the maggots

Do you understand (yes)(x4)

Say it again say it again (we won't die)(x4)

I find these lyrics as a soldier to be brutally about the United States. Most people find it evil, and we dont always do the right thing ( who does? ) however i like "We fight till no one can fight us, we live and no one can stop us..." until the end. It just fills me full of patriotic rage and makes me think "Fuck yeah, world, come at us bro!" I loved this song prior to joining the army and still do.

Holy Fuck!!!! | Reviewer: The Beastly One | 5/27/12

One of the Best Slipknot Songs Ever. I love how Slipknots Lyrics Can be used in so many situations, they are so creative with their words and their instruments ( i mean, how hard is it to get 9 people to do things in perfect unison, thats Fucking Insane People!!!). And there is the fact that this song revolves around my current point in life. oh and Tyler, you cannot kill what you did not create.

Five pages of people raging over a badly spelled 2 3 sentence paragraph. I had to really look hard to find whoever this Tyler kid is.

Let me put this in mathematical terms

f(x) = internet rage
f(e) = troll's actual effort
f(t) = how much you have been trolled

lim x → ∞ f(x) ÷f(e) = f(t)

if f(t) ≠ 0, build a bridge and get the fuck over it.

this is a repost

tyler durden is a character from the movie fight club. This song represents everything a maggot should possess. Undying determination,the will to step out knowing what may happen. and confronting the face of hypocracy that has gripped so many "leaders" the one thing that remains a constant is the beating heart inside of us maggots that will pulse and reverberate throughout the halls of all the corrupt. And as to the thing about the song being used in a movie, the Stars television show spartacus would be an amazing place for the song. when i saw slipknot, i prayed that they played the song. but i didnt have that pleasure

tyler can 'S' my 'D' | Reviewer: (sic) douche | 12/15/10

this song is one of the best, and vol. 3 is a fucking good album. But on a different note, this tyler person is just gay for listening to Boys like Girl. And if he calls that hardcore, he wouldn't last 0.009 seconds in a Slipknot concert. Cut his Nuts off

Just Amazing (And a sidenote about Tyler) | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/12/10

This song is bloody amazing, the intro could easily be placed into any movie that includes a resistance uprising!

Even though Corey's screaming is different to Iowa and Slipknot, it is still just as good!

And has no-one else noticed that Tyler's 'name' is Tyler Durden, who is Edward Norton's schizophrenic other half (played by Brad Pitt) in the film Fight Club?

Baddass | Reviewer: Branden707 | 11/21/10

Dude this bad is the shit. Iv loved this band since i first heard it. This song pulse of the maggots by far is the best song ever. It helped me out alot. Now im putting a stand to all the assholes in the world. All of the Slipknot fans out there should to. You all saw the lyrics. Listened to the song. Come on lets do this."What have you got to lose, what have you got to lose
Except your soul... who's with us?!" I am.
PS. Dont let that tyler guy get on ur nerves. Hes just being a bitch, an knows it.

Epic song | Reviewer: Maggot | 10/18/10

This song gets me so pumped up! :D
I just feel like standing up and shouting, it's amazing. So many emotions mixed up!
Slipknot is an amazing band, worked wonders for me. It helped me so much in life, I just <3 it! :)
Corey Taylor is such a great screamer ;)

stereotypes can go to hell btw. | Reviewer: thatsright. | 9/27/10

"You guys gotta go buy the boys like girl album right now its soo much more hardcore"
hardcore? what a pathetic joke.
alright, come here and diss slipknot, and all of the Slipknot fans will excoriate you to death. if any of these slipknot fans see you in the street, you're bound to get "boys like girl album" stuffed down your throat and your balls kicked.
i'm not going to say any more, because all of the other maggots here have lambasted you enough.
but ps, i'm a 14 YEAR OLD GIRL, i hate justin bieber, i love slipknot, metallica, iron maiden etc. i'm not queer, antisocial, neither do i cut myself. my grades are minimally above average, and yes, i have friends.
for those who still see things parochially, confined to seeing an individual based on his/her age group or looks, i strongly suggest you rethink your beliefs.
p.s.s, tyler, you're a wuss.

Okay, I heard someone mentioning the fact that Boys Like Girls suck. Personally I adore Slipknot more than almost any other band, but I still like Boys Like Girls. We shouldn't judge each other on music even if we find it comparable to horse shit. Music doesn't make a person.

just me..voicing my opinion on the situation... | Reviewer: 6thir6teen6 | 7/20/10

To the anonymous person saying theres nothing wrong with the EMO or goth people...your right...there's nothing wrong with it...I'm not goth or EMO neither but to listen to my play list you wouldn't think so...although I live in south Georgia where my family has a few farms and where I work all day listening to slipknot and avenged sevenfold, disturbed, and korn...things of that nature...I am just about one of the biggest red neck there is...so its not cause of my music should I be stereotyped...I think the ppl that place ppl in "groups"...all need to burn in hell for the shit...ima red neck and listen to the shit I wanna listen to..got a problem with it...??? Get the fuck over it...its my ears..my brain..and my money that buys it..

Review and Tyler Bashing... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/18/10

First off Tyler, I would like to point out the irony that, you, who can't correctly conjegate sentances, listen to boys like girls, and are bashing us Maggots. (yes, i realise that I should have capitalized the band name, however, I dont find them to be nearly as important as Horse Shit.) Also, I would like to point out that, regardless of the social clique that is stereotypically grouped with Slipknot, we are much better than any single person who finds boys like girls--(again; Horse Shit)--to be "music." We, sir, have a voice. We have opinions and strength. We are a people bound by views and opinions that are vocalised through an epic, politically expressed medium, the likes of which has not been observed since Rage Against The Machine. We are much more than you teenie-bopping, virginal masturbaturs.

Second, I would like to give cudos to this song. It gave Maggots an even deeper look into their own political opinions. It let us get pumped about more than just that "(sic)"-ness we all love.


R.I.P. - Paul Gray
Live on through the Pulse of the Maggots!

Stay (sic)!

Hold your breath. | Reviewer: Martin Ibanez | 2/18/10

No music is bad or wrong it just depends on the listener, we all have the right to say what we want free speech and whatever. It was gods gift to the humans that we could think freely and feel, and look how that went.... straight to hell! if u should blame anyone for this blame god and dont forget, HAIL SATAN!

Defiance | Reviewer: Spike | 2/9/10

This is my all time favourite Slipknot song. It really pumps you up and makes you feel awesome. Just drift away and sing the lyrics either out loud or in your head, it makes you feel like you can do anything.

I myself don't think this is "generic metal" at all, I don't even think it's that anti-establishment. I think it's more about the kids who have had to take so much crap in there lives turn around and saying enough! In other words, a song about defiance.

Anyway, I listen to all kinds of music, from Irish Folk to 80's Metal and this song will always be one of my top five favourites.

*hears the siren warming up for the song* aaahh...bliss!

(BTW, Tyler you're a dick just for saying what you said. I could care less you think is better than Slipknot, or if they have better songs etc etc. I came here for the lyrics of THIS band and THIS song. Take your pseudo review and write a blog, loser)
