Gently was written by Shawn Crahan in high school. The song ends up being played during the Basement Sessions as an Epic/Instrumental. Gently is then improved on and released in Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat, then during the Crowz era we hear that the guitar intro is completely removed and Corey alters the lyrics slightly. The song then later appears on Iowa.

Lyrics

Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat lyrics

Gently my mind escapes into the relaxing mode of pleasure.

A pleasure that will take my mind off the reality of life,

My past life.

Life as I know it know.

And whatever may come it slowly disappears,

To somewhere in the back of my mind,

It will remain there until I wish to retrieve it.

Yes I will stay here for a while for I need the break.

A break from the pressures of life.

And everything that lay in the palm of life's hands.

This mode is incredible.

It's out of this world.

Too bad I must always leave it.

But that's life.

That's life.

Shift.


Iowa Lyrics

Slipknot - Gently (Audio)-004:55

Slipknot - Gently (Audio)-0

Gently, my mind escapes into the relaxing

world of pleasure, a pleasure that'll take

my mind off the reality of my life,

my past life... life as I know it now.

And whatever may come, it slowly

disappears to somewhere in the back

of my mind. It will remain there,

until I wish to retrieve it.

Yes, I will stay here for a while,

for I need the break.

A break from the

pressures of life,

and everything

that lays in the palm of life's hands.

This mode is incredible.

It's out of this world.

Too bad I must always leave it...

... but that's life.

Yes.


Review

Review from Slipknot-metal.com

"This song is reprised on Slipknot's multi-platinum second album "Iowa". The only difference between the two versions is the singer. Chunky riffing and double-bass + Anders screaming his head off=delicious."
