Slipknot - No Life (Audio)02:48

Slipknot - No Life (Audio)


Song Meaning Edit

I feel that No Life is saying that everyone is shit. All you have is yourself and your freedom. Everyone is going to turn around and stab you in the fucking back, you have no one to turn to, and you can't depend on anyone but yourself. And it is no kind of life to live on in constant fear, so you end up hiding behind a false "mask" so no one can see what is inside. When you need someone the most, they will not be there because they're worried about themselves and themselves only and don't give a fuck about you. And when you fall on your fucking face you better get the hell up fast.

LyricsEdit

My freedom is best
Whole country's on house arrest
And everyone's a suspect
You can't feel the flow because you died
Face down on a "suicide"
The motherfucker's on self-destruct
Nobody guarding your back, it's all a front
Save this, my rage is bliss
I'm taking names and getting pissed!
Where's Chuck D when you need him?
You ain't shit, just a puddle on the bed spread
The maniac psycho
Cool J screamed the shit, but I still can't believe it
Man, it's funny that you scare me so
Just enough to fuck me up again and again
Hard life is hard as hell
Better back the fuck on up 'cause this is...

No kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
I've got to get out!
It's no kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
You can't blame me!

Can't be real no more your mask is skin and bone
Savor every flavor you got 'cause it's not your own
Bad-ass at bat, man
Forget about the battle, it's the war we gotta win
Breathe, amer-cult, breathe!
One more - seethe!
Freak like you gotta pair, won't be my fault
When you're painted in the corner of a no-good life

This is no kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
I've got to get out!
It's no kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
You can't blame me!

I can't remember, I don't understand
Is it malice that makes you this way?
Carry it with you till someone forgives you
I laugh 'cause there's nothing to say
You can't begin to consider
The palpable hate in the air when you're here
None of us wonder what weather you're under
You're making it perfectly clear

Lights ain't on, shit ain't right
Never had peace but I gotta fight
Can you look in my eyes when my back's against the wall
Slash at my eyes, surprise, you'll never get me
You're all reality and sound bites
And the freedom is never in plain sight
The feelings, the question
The price is too human for fucking sake

This is no kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
I've got to get out!
It's no kind of life!
This is no kind of life!
You can't blame me!

I can't be!
I can't be!
I can't be blamed!
