"Despise" is the last of the 5 tracks that appear on the Demo released in 1998. It also appears on the Digipak version of "Slipknot's self titled album".

Some of the lyrics to "Despise" were removed, and some others were rewritten, much like the song Interloper. "Despise" later evolved into "Purity", the last song recorded for Slipknot. When the album got re-released in December 1999, "Purity" was removed from the album, but later re-appeared on Disasterpieces.

Lyrics

Slipknot Despise03:42

Slipknot Despise

Maze... 

Psychopathic daze... 

I create this waste 

Back away from tangents,  

On the verge of drastic ways... 

Can't escape this place... 

I deny your face 

Sweat gets in my eyes, 

Lash out at all I despise 

HANDS ON MY FACE OVERBEARING I CAN'T GET OUT 

Lost... 

Ran at my own cost 

Hearing laughter, 

Scoffed 

Searching from the rush,  

Detached from such and such  

Bleak... 

Standing on my feet... 

listening incomplete I am not a dog,  

But I'm the one you dog 

HANDS ON MY FACE OVERBEARING I CAN'T GET OUT 

Never - ever - surrender - I WON'T ALLOW IT! 

Never - ever - surrender - DESPISE 

My state of mind gets so one-sided Despise! 

Cut me - show me - enter -  

I am willing and able and never any danger to myself 

Knowledge in my pain, knowledge in my pain 

Or was my tolerance a phase? 

Empathy, out of my way I can't die 

Never - ever - surrender - I WON'T ALLOW IT! 

Never - ever - surrender - DESPISE

My state of mind gets so one-sided 

Despise!

Truth hurts when it's in your face 

Are you afraid of it?
