No Life is track #12 on the Self Titled Album

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 really 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 really inside. When you need someone the most, they will not be there because they're worried about themselves and themselves only and really 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 muthafucker's on self-destruct 

Nobody guardin' your back, it's all a front 

Save this! My rage is bliss!  

I'm takin' names and gettin' pissed 

Where's Chuck D when ya 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  

Cuz 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 want cuz 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! 

On 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 'til someone forgives you 

I laugh cuz 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 so I had to 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!)
