Wait & Bleed Lyrics - Slipknot

Review The Song (122)



I've felt the air rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed.
I felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed.

Goodbye!

I wipe it of on tile, the light is brighter this time
Everything is 3D blasphemy
My eyes are red and gold, the hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I can't control my shakes, how the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this

Is it a dream or a memory?

I felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander around where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed

Get outta my head cuz I don't need this
Why didn't I see this? I'm a victim - Manchurian candidate
I - have - sinned - by - just
Makin' my mind up and takin' your breath away!

I felt the air rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander around where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed
I felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear that stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed.

Goodbye!

You haven't learned a thing
I haven't changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free
You haven't learned a thing
I haven't changed a thing
My flesh was in my bones
The pain was always free

I felt the air rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell I wait and bleed
I felt the hate rise up in me
Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves
I wander out where you can't see
Inside my shell, I wait and bleed.

AND IT WAITS FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

this song is so catchy nd kick ass..nd speaking abt its meaning, i think its abt a person whose anger destroys him,, leading him to try suicide nd in his last hours he realizes life has much more to him.. bt then its too late...nd he regrets it..

Best song ever | Reviewer: Zoey | 9/22/13

I love this song so much. It's one of my favourite songs by Slipknot and its my favourite song altogether. I feel like I can really relate to the lyrics and when I'm angry it really helps me. The song is so hateful and angry I just love it... He's just getting he's anger out and I really love that. This song never gets old. I can still play it on repeat all day after 4 years

My thoughts | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/22/13

To me, this song is about the aftermath of a drug binge. It is about waking up confused and shaking and basically coming back to life (clear the stone of leaves to me means clearing the detritus off of your grave, a metaphor for coming back to consciousness). You look at yourself and you see what is basically a half dead monster that is hardly recognizable as yourself.

the hair is standing straight up
This is not the way I pictured me
I can't control my shakes
How the hell did I get here?
Something about this, so very wrong
I have to laugh out loud, I wish I didn't like this
Is it a dream or a memory?

Alter ego | Reviewer: Alok | 3/20/12

I think that in this song Corey is having a conversation with his alter ego(Corey under the meask). He is angry towards him(''Get outta my head cuz I don't need this''), and alter ego has probably came to life after unpleasant event(s) in Corey's life. ''Stone of leaves'' probably refers to a Scissor, paper, rock game in which Corey lost(leaf envelops rock = mask(''shell'') envelops Corey), and he wants to settle the score - ''kneel down and clear''. Also ''Manchurian candidates'' got brainwashed in the original novel, so that event(s) which changed Corey's life must have had a really strong impact in order to shake the foundation of everything he knew before. ''I haven't changed a thing'' probably refers to his unwillingness to accept total defeat and change.
Really meaningful song, and one of my favourites.

epic song | Reviewer: renie | 1/28/12

this song is really good but its not the best song that slipknot has made, but i can really relate to their songs. I still love this song and i have all of their CDs so i am a big slipknot fan...

Wait and bleed | Reviewer: Kaiden Best | 11/11/11

@John, you are completely wrong, music is art and it can be interpreted anyway, that's the beauty of it, just listen to Lars Ulrich, if someone thinks this song is about a pussy or flowers even they are not wrong, it's what you get out of it.

I loveee it | Reviewer: T-Rexx | 9/11/11

Listen to it,Feel it,The non screamy/hateful is Corey saying he feels the hate rise,Then when he screams its his alter ego/personality saying he loves it,nd the verse b4 last is corey telling the ego he hasnt learned a thing and he'll never change,Then at the end its the ego changing him,I suck at explaining,I hope that made sense!Im only 12 so what do I know?For all i know hes talking about making his girlfriend change her underwear and how gross she is and how het hates her gross crotch lol

Nope | Reviewer: John | 8/18/11

You guys are really stupid, aren't ya?!
Everyoe says something that he or she understand about the song, but, 100% explanation should be given by Corey, and him only, he wrote it.
=X
So, shut up, no one is right!

mkultra monarch programming | Reviewer: Krissy | 8/9/11

This song sounds like its from the view point of a 'manchurian candidate' during the torture. Electroshock is used to traumatize victims in order for them to dissociate from reality.
"I can't control my shakes, how the hell did i get here"


Story | Reviewer: Chris | 7/27/11

If yoy never knew these songs express the mask side of slipknot (without mask not screaming or hateful, and with mask screamy and hateful) ergo when he said I felt the hate rise up in me he means he is changing inside and then when he screams thats his alter ego saying that he loves it and at the end when it says and it waits for you that means the mask side is letting him change and not making him. The second to last verse is the normal Corey trying to tell the bad one that he hasn't changed and that he will never learn that,,, there's more but you guys have to find that out

SLIPKNOT IS AWESOME!!! | Reviewer: DEFTONES!! | 6/21/11

I think this song is SOO awesome but I think it's about like the guys kinda embarrassed about his past or freaked out about it and he's mad at himself or someone (I felt the hate rise up in me) but he realizes that thats really who he is an just accepts it but I might be wrong so idk

What it means to me | Reviewer: Treyton | 5/21/11

The meaning to me sounds like someone who is guilty for their past mistakes, but at the same time he controdicts this by saying that he shouldn't be guilty cuz that's just who he is. For instance:
"this is not the way I pictured me"
and
"I havn't changed a thing"

interpertation | Reviewer: jt | 2/9/11

So many people get this wrong and I don't know why but this song is about dreaming and wanting to commit suicide and when u finally slit your wrists the feelings you get of not wanting to die. And it really sounds like corey says air not hate

Slipknot is FUCKING EPIC!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/9/10

First of all the all time greatest drummer of the world joey jordison is not dead, it was the bassist paul gray who died. Secondly this song is FUCKING EPIC!!! One of my favourites aswell as spit it out

My Interpretation of the Lyrics | Reviewer: Spencer | 11/2/10

I think this song kind of reflects how I felt when I realized that I truly love my girlfriend.

Chorus:
Not much of an issue. Doesn't really mean anything.

1st verse:
How all of a sudden, I had all of these sudden feelings for her and that they took me by surprise.

2nd verse:
At first, I didn't want to believe it. I tried to shake off the feelings that I had, and try to think they weren't true.

Bridge:
Me realizing that the feelings were indeed true, and I really do love her.

Closing:
Me accepting the feelings.
