Single Chronology
Vermilion (song) Before I Forget The Nameless
Before I Forget is the tenth track and the third single from the album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses). It appears in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. The song borrows the main riff from a previous song called "Carve"

Music Video

The music video for the song was the first Slipknot music video in which the band members do not wear their masks and are seen in everyday clothes rather than the jumpsuits. However, whenever the faces are shown, it is zoomed in, not showing the entire face. The audio for the video skips the guitar-only intro and the "Morse code" part at the end.

Lyrics

Go!

Stapled shut inside an outside world
And I'm sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm catastrophic
Not again
I'm smeared across the page
And doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain
Yet I'm the one who's obscene
Catch me up
On all your sordid little insurrections
I've got no time to lose
And I'm just caught up in all the cattle
Fray the strings
Throw the shapes
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!
I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!

I'm ripped across the ditch
And settled in the dirt
And I wear you like a stitch
Yet I'm the one who's hurt
Pay attention
To your twisted little indiscretions
I've got no right to win
I'm just caught up in all the battles
Locked in clutch
Pushed in place
Hold your breath
Listen!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!
I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!

My end, it justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road and my end
It justifies my means
All I ever do is delay
My every attempt to evade
The end of the road!

I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!
I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!
I am a world before I am a man
I was a creature before I could stand
I will remember before I forget
Before I forget that!

Hidden Message

Two hidden messages are in the song, at the ending part. The first one is the strange beeps that happen. It is actually "Slipknot" in Morse code. The second, although possibly unintentional, can be heard when the ending is played backward and is "You're wasting it".
