Slipknot - Don't Get Close

Come on!

Somebody give me some light
Not pointed into dark
Somebody show me the end
And I try to push a start
I'm trying to figure out
A better way, a better answer
But I keep finding all the problems
I've been looking after
You can't wander through the world
With nothing but a smile
I'll take your tongue for words
And use it to instill denial

Don't get close!
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Chivalry will get you somewhere
Rivalry will take you there
Don't get close!
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Chivalry will get you somewhere
Rivalry will take you there

Maybe I should look away
Before I really miss
Maybe I should pick the time
Before I pick the place
I bet you all the things
That you emulate, you penalize
But I don't wanna go
Until you learn to finalize

Don't get close!
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Chivalry will get you somewhere
Rivalry will take you there
Don't get close!
You don't know me
And you'll never know
Chivalry will get you somewhere
Rivalry!

You ascertain the plot
My vision's overshot
I have the best confection
I was gone for all the lessons
Who coined these words I use
Stay out and be abused
I didn't want to be
The undeniable source of everything

Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away!

Waiting, watching all the conflicts
Constrict, push the fist in, squeeze it
I cannot resist claws and fist
Remember, remember
You take the rivalries
And never make much sense
I have the worst possession
What I want is so insensitive
Stay out and be abused
'Cause this is so confused
I only want to be
Left alone and rot away

Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
Don't get close!
You'd better stay away
