Single Chronology
Left Behind My Plague Duality
My Plague is the fourth song from Slipknot's second album, Iowa. It was the third and last single released from the album.


An alternate mix of it called "My Plague (New Abuse Mix)" was released as a single in 2002. A promotional video was also made for it which featured clips of the band playing live alongside clips from the movie "Resident Evil", on which the song was featured on its soundtrack. Later on a version of the video was released without the clips from the Resident Evil movie.


I'm in conniptions for the final act you came here for. The one derivative you manage is the one I abhor. I need a minute to elaborate for everyone the Everyday bullshit things that you have done

Your impossible ego fuck is like a Megalomaniacal tab on my tongue You fucking touch me I will rip you apart I'll reach in and take a bite out of that Shit you call a heart...

I don't mind being ogled, ridiculed Made to feel minuscule If you consider the source, its kinda pitiful The only thing you really know about me is... ...that's all you'll ever know

I know why you blame me (yourself) I know why you plague me (yourself)

I'm turning it around like a knife in the shell I wanna understand why, but Im hurting myself I haven't seen a lot of reasons to stop it I cant just drop it I'm just a bastard, but at least I admit it At least I admit it

I know why you blame me I know why you blame yourself I know why you plague me I know why you plague yourself

Kill you - fuck you - I will never be you Kill you - fuck you - I will never be you I cant fucking take it anymore A snap of the synapse And now its fucking war

Kill you - fuck you - I will never be you
