Scissors is the last song on the first album. It was originally a demo.

Demo Version

The song was originally titled "Heartache And A Pair Of Scissors". Unfortunately, no studio versions of Heartache And A Pair Of Scissors have (so far) been leaked.

Slipknot - Scissors (Full Version)

During the recording sessions of Slipknot, "Heartache and a Pair of Scissors" was recorded. The title was shortened to just "Scissors", and this version is obviously more emotional than the demo version. After the actual lyrics are done, Corey is screaming very hard and painfully and added a new set of lyrics into a new section of the song, not in the demo version (You want it, you need it). This is the thirteenth track on the album (not counting 742617000027 or Frail Limb Nursery), and the last visible track on the album.

Lyrics

I play doctor for five minutes flat
Before I cut my heart open
And let the air out
Three bugs, a pound of dust
Some wind spilled before me
In the strangest manner that had
Broke away my tear spout!
As I lie there
With my tongue spread wide open
A black widow had offered me
A sweetheart tube
As I injected
The candid heart that I selected
She said don't hesitate
Just do what you want to do to me!

It's hard to stay between the lines of skin
Just 'cause I have nerves don't mean that I can feel
I wasn't very much fun to be with anyway
Just let the blood run red 'cause I can't feel!
It's hard to stay between the lines of skin
Just 'cause I have nerves don't mean that I can feel
I wasn't very much fun to be with anyway
Just let the blood run red 'cause I can't feel!

Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time, it's time
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time, it's time!
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time, it's time!
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time until the time is right
Biding my time, it's time!
Biding!
Biding!
Biding!
Biding!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!
Yeah!

Someone in behind me
Someone inside me
Everyone against me
Everyone beside me
Clawing away
The pieces
Scratching away
The abscess
One more
Two more
Everyone, once more
One more
Two more
Everyone, once more
Inside the faces that I hide from you
I want to see you spread before me
You are the only one
That I would rather see before me!
You want it
You need it
You want it
You need it
You want it
You need it
You want it
You need it
Don't lie!
I die, you lie!
I lie?
Oh, why?
I don't want you to pay anyone when I die!
I wanna die!
I'd rather die!
I wanna die!
You purge!
You burn!
You purge!
I don't need you anymore!
I don't need you!

It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
It is time!
