Slipknot - Me Inside (Corey Crowz Demo)

Two demo versions of "Me Inside" exist on the internet. Each has 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" lyrics and instrumentals.

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 the 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
Snap, your face was all it took
'Cause this need is doing me no good
Fall on my face, but can't you see?
This fucking life is killing me!

Tearing me!
Tearing me!
Tearing me!
Tearing me!

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 you go?
What do you do?
Simpleton, impromptu, crazy eight
I never cared, not once
Got to get away!

Tearing me!
Tearing me!
Tearing me!
Tearing me!

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, motherfucker!
I wasn't promised a thing
You keep mocking me
But you will never again
Before you know it, after you're gone!
