Slipknot - Me Inside (Corey Crowz Demo)

Two demo versions of "Me Inside" exist on the internet. Each have different lyrics, and recorded by different vocalists.

"Me Inside" has vocals recorded by Corey. It is the first song recorded by Slipknot to have Corey Taylor's vocals.

"The Me Inside" has vocals recorded by Anders. It is quite different from "Me Inside" lyricwise and instrumentalwise.

Slipknot Version

In February of 1999, "Me Inside" was re-recorded for the debut album. It was the first song that Jim Root recorded after joining the band.

"Me Inside" did not appear on the original pressing of the album. Instead, two other tracks called Frail Limb Nursery and Purity appeared as track 8 and 9. A digipak version was selling which had 19 tracks instead of 15, and "Me Inside" appeared as the sixteenth track. When "Frail Limb Nursery" and "Purity" were pulled from the album due to lawsuit, "Me Inside" was moved to track 8.

The album version closely resembles the demo version with Corey's vocals. There is a different second verse, and it is in a higher key, but the two are very similar.


Giving in to what has got me

Feeling claustrophobic, scarred 

Severed me from all emotion 

Life is just too fucking hard 


Your face was all it took 

Cuz this need ain't doin' me no good 

Fall on my face, but can't you see? 

This fucking life is killing me!

Tearing me / Inside 

Too far gone, I'm catatonic  

Leaving you to criticize 

Empty shell and running naked  

All alone... lobotomized  

Back and forth between my hang-ups  

It isn't easy to be hated  

Where do ya go?  

Whaddya do?  

Simpleton, impromptu, crazy eight  

I never cared 

Not once  

Gotta get away! 

Tearing me / Inside 

I wasn't promised a thing  

You keep mocking me  

But you will never again  

Before you know - after you're gone 


Somos feos apestamos y pero reinamos hoto muthafucka

You keep mocking me 

But you will never again  

Before you know - after you're gone
