Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat Lyrics

Pain. Made to order. Pain

Sittin', slappen, scatt'n on my back, try'n to relax Think'n about the facts of the crack runnin' through the pack Division in thought about the war to be fought For tryin' to mend the ranks, still I get no thanks They say they mean no disrespect, but dis' is in effect I take to heart the part I play everyday Uninformed is one thing, stupid is another Keep runnin' your mouth, but don't call me brother

I'm try'n to find someone on my side 'cause bang'n heads all the time starts to grind at my gear and at my will But persistent I am still So when one insubordinate fucker tries to test me Blow to the head, then an entrail rend Guts on the floor, but you want more Show you the strength of the tenth rank Pain is the only way to teach kids these days

Opened your eyes. Now realized. Talk back to me. Your punk-ass dies.

Only one of us walks away

I'm all you know. Where will you go. Valhalla is gone. Along with your soul.

Only one of us walks away.

Self Titled Lyrics

Pain!
Made to order!
Pain!
Made to order!
Pain!
Made to order!
Pain!

I'm not the second coming
I'm the first wave
Better get an army
'Cause the fire left me unscathed
You bet your bottom dollar
I'm the top of the shit pile
So stick around
'Cause I'll get to you in just a few
Step off the Achtung
Get back or get stung
Idiotic sense of yourself
Are you that dumb?
Entire legion of me
Totalitarian
The one and only motherfucker
Top of the world man
'Cause I can't stand it, planned it
Gonna crash land it
In other words
Consider me branded
Another version of me
Another version of you
Both barrels
What you're gonna do?

All I hear is human noise!
You made your own fucking choice!
I belong to only me!
Silence for my revelry!

I can only die over time!
Filthy hands, stay away from mine!
Every reason is a right to hate!
Painful clutch!
Death is fine, give me mine!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Somebody explain this!
You don't care 'cause you don't exist!
What the fuck, is this another joke?
Reckoning!

Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!
Only one of us walks away!


Review

Review from Slipknot-Metal.com

Here we have a vastly different version of the song that also appears on the self-titled album. Hip-hop vocals, jazz riffing, and a decided emphasis on a non-linear song structure make this "One" infinitely more worth listening to.


Trivia

  • This song was only played live 2 or 3 times during the Self-Titled era. But it was commonly played live 1996 to 1998
