KILLPOP Lyrics

She's sticking needles in her skin
I turn with another grin
Her canvas doesn't leave a lot - to fantasy

But her peace of mind - can't stay inside the lines
It's so confusing, the methods that she's using
She knows she shouldn't leave a mark - that I can see

Will she ever find, wondering of a kind
It's cold and lonely, but that's because she told me
Lost inside her dirty world
No one hurts this pretty girl but her

LOVE, SHE'S BEAUTIFUL
A LITTLE BETTER THAN HER MIND DEFERS
YOU ARE NOT INSIDE
PLEASE TELL ME SHE WON'T CHANGE


Maybe I should let her go
But only when she loves me
(She loves me)

How can I just let her go?
Not until she loves me
(She loves me)

She's drowning in herself again
My god, what a lovely sin
I guess there's nothing left to do
But have my way

She can feel it's right
So she doesn't close her eyes
She smiles and answers
It doesn't seem to matter

Lost inside my dirty head
Something tells me I'm the one who's kept

LOUD, SO VOLATILE
A LITTLE BETTER THAN HER MIND DEFILED
WHO I NEED TO BE
PLEASE TELL ME SHE WON'T CHANGE


Maybe I should let her go
But only when she loves me
(She loves me)

How can I just let her go?
Not until she loves me
(She loves me)



WE WERE MENT TO BE TOGETHER
NOW DIE AND FUCKING LOVE ME


WE WERE MENT TO BE TOGETHER
NOW DIE AND FUCKING LOVE ME


DIE AND FUCKING LOVE ME
DIE AND FUCKING LOVE ME
DIE AND FUCKING LOVE ME

Slipknot Premiere New Track “AOV"

posted on 15 Oct 2014

It seems as though Slipknot is slowly streaming the entirety of their upcoming record .5: The Gray Chapter
You can check out “AOV”  below. 



AOV - Approaching Original Violence Lyrics
 

Black
Dirty thief
In the grease
Was the proof too good to be believed?
Is the cunt
With the dumb
Who belongs on broken knees?


So far it occurs to me
That everybody in the world is afraid of me
Just one more cent and down we go
Now that the news is out
And I think I'm going to


Kill myself
Or fuck myself
Or tell myself
About the only thing that matters now
We bury what we fear the most
Approaching original violence!
Is the silence where you hide it?
Cuz I don't recognize you anymore


To each his own
I can do with one less watered down excuse
If this is over you can
Tell me it's no use


You can tell me it's over


Today
We will deceive
Our better selves
Into assimilating pain from something else

Put on your face
And show me why
Behind the scenes we had to simply comply


Now the community
Doesn't feel any better than it used to be
I wanna be a judge in a criminal case
You covered up, did you come to be

Be yourself
Not yourself
Know yourself
Cuz no one seems to know you now


We carry what we can't control
Approaching original violence
In the silence - There is a nihilist
Who does't care - And now they're dead

To each his own
I can do with one less watered down excuse
There comes a time where we can't
Take the same abuse


If this is over you can tell me it's no use


Drug out bits I'll never get to say
What you wanted doesn't matter
Nothing's gonna change

I don't wanna watch another brother fucking die
So discarded, fall over the side

Don't tell me it's the only way
Just another reason why you never take the bait
The trials, the screaming, the burdens of the beast
Fucked your face and turned your back on
Everything you thought could save a dream


We are the angels fear to tread
Approaching original violence
We're the silence
We'll deny it
We can't continue on like this

To each his own
I can do with one less watered down excuse
There comes a time where we can't
Take the same abuse


If this is over you can tell me it's no use
It doesn't matter what you say
It doesn't matter what you do
We can't continue on like this

On Friday, we called the new Slipknot track "Custer" the heaviest yet off their new album, .5: The Gray Chapter.

Well if that was the heaviest, today's unveiling of "XIX" is clearly the most emo(tional) track so far. "XIX" serves as the intro track for the new record and it's almost a power ballad. 

You can check out “XIX”  below.

Shades of Gray: Between the death and departure of various band members, Slipknot have had a rough few years. With .5: The Gray Chapter, they channel the energy of deceased bassist Paul Gray and return with a brutal but multifaceted album.

“The future of Slipknot is always in doubt,” guitarist Jim Root says. “I always prepare for each album as if it’s gonna be the last.”

It’s a minor miracle that Slipknot have lasted as long as they have. Yet, they have endured since the group formed in Des Moines, Iowa, 19 years ago, becoming one of the heaviest and scariest bands in a genre crowded with heavy, scary acts. Some 13 years have elapsed since the band’s self-titled debut album placed them at the forefront of the then-burgeoning nu-metal scene.

With all the different guys in the band and all the different ideas of what’s what, it’s hard to get everybody on the same page sometimes,” Root says. “We are a very tight brotherhood, but we never know what we’re going to do.

However, nothing in Slipknot’s turbulent history has been as daunting as the death of their longtime bass player, Paul Gray, from a morphine overdose in 2010. The tragedy was compounded by the recent departure - somewhat acrimonious, apparently - of longtime drummer Joey Jordison. Because both Gray and Jordison were key songwriters for the band, Slipknot’s future has hung in the balance these past few years.

But Mick Thomson, Gray’s coguitarist, says he never really considered packing it in.

“Any devastating moment throws you into shock,” he says. “I was just hoping that no one in the band was going to get caught up in the raw emotion of the moment and make any kind of grand statement, like, ‘I will not go on without Paul.’ You say something in the heat of emotion, and sometimes later when you settle down, you think, Maybe I should take that back. Once you can think straight again, what do you do? Obviously, you gotta get on with your life. We all grieve differently. I mean, we still are grieving, every time we think about it. It’s not something you get over. You just find a way to deal with it.”

With Gray and Jordison out of the picture, the bulk of songwriting duties fell to Jim Root on Slipknot’s new album .5: The Gray Chapter. The title pays homage to the deceased bassist, and the music remains true to Slipknot’s disturbing legacy.

Somber, sound-collage intros - generally assembled by Slipknot’s turntablist Sid Wilson, sampling maven Craig Jones and provocateur-in-chief Shawn “Clown” Crahan = lull the listener into a false sense of security. Then all hell breaks loose in a cacophony of car-bomb percussion as Root and Thomson’s down-tuned guitars chug and grind like some diabolic machine and lead singer Corey Taylor does his level best to projectile-vomit his tonsils out over his front teeth.

“Once we get in the studio, it sounds like us,Thomson says of The Gray Chapter. “Some of it is very classic us. Some of it is slightly more experimental us.”

“We’re still evolving as a band,” Root adds. “I think that’s really important for a band to do, especially after being around for so many years. Paul, before he passed away, really wanted the band to experiment a lot more, musically, with the direction of where we’re going. We’d done Slipknot. We’d done Iowa. I think the closest thing we’ve done to a record that Paul was very excited about was probably The Subliminal Verses. It’s very diverse. It had a little bit of everything in it. And we’re still trying to find our way. For me, and for Paul’s legacy, it’s important that we continue to evolve.”

In Gray’s absence, Root and Thomson handled the majority of bass duties on the new album, although the band did some early work with Slipknot’s touring bassist Donnie Steele. “Donnie’s a great guy,” Root says. “We brought him in to help us out in the studio for a while. But it wasn’t really jivin’. He wanted to go home and get married and do all that stuff. It’s just better off for us to kinda move on from Donnie.”

The identity of the drummer on The Gray Chapter, as well as that of the bassist who will take Gray’s place once Slipknot hit the road, was still a closely guarded secret at press time.

“We’re not saying who the new drummer is,” Root confirms. “Even if people find out beyond a shadow of a doubt who the new drummer is, I think we’re always going to deny who it is. He might not last. He might tour with us a year and figure out we’re all insane and he can’t handle being around us. Or we might shut him out. Who knows? For Slipknot, I’d say drumming is only 50 or 60 percent of the job. The rest of it is who you are and what your personality is. Will you clash with guys like me, Mick, Clown, Corey, Craig and Chris? We all have these strong alpha-male personalities.”
