Slipknot - Override (Audio)

The ghosts have given up
Familiar haunts have had enough
Too much thought will give you doubt
And now they found you
It's safer in a cage
They can tell you what to say
All your dreams come with a price
So they own you
But what did you expect?
Was it too much to protect?
Did you understand they had selfish intentions
When they were pulling you in opposite directions?

You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
We are the override!
We are the override!

The dead don't know, the dead are lonely
A fascination fades
When this mercy execution
Says it's over
You follow as preferred
Now their plans are undeterred
Who can bring them in to supersede
It's over
Even hate starts out as love
Sometimes when it's all you want
Maybe satisfaction will take you for granted
When all that's left is the emotion you abandoned

You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
We are the override!
We are the override!

You clawed out from nothing, and I sent you back
Fought to the metal and law's what you lacked
Covered in sores you cannot be the one
You are the answer to why we have risen
You are not the way
You are judged to being afraid
You are simple and unchanged
We believe you should give up
Satisfaction will take you for granted
When all that's left is a life you abandoned

You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
You don't know the hell that's coming!
Everybody get on the ground!
We are the override!
We are the override!
