"Frail Limb Nursery" is the 45-second sample-filled prelude to the controversial track Purity. Along with Purity, the track was removed from the album.

Although Purity appears on Slipknot: 10th Anniversary Edition, Frail Limb Nursery does not appear on this version.


The beginning of the track is a flow from the track Tattered and Torn. Following this, Purity's voice can be heard, a sample from the crime scene website. The end of the track flows into Purity.

Slipknot - Frail Limb Nursery


Go on! What about the boy?
She lay as though she were in a trance
With her long eyelashes fluttering like she was dreaming
She said to him "I lie beyond the sea"
And then all of a sudden her head dipped back and she vanished
Gone, gone without a trace
A tuohtiw enog, enog
She's never coming back
Do you know what it's like to live with that?
No one knows what it's like
The only one who knew me, gone
I know what you want, and I can give it to you
So tired
Tired and hungry
So tired
Have you ever seen God?
