Song Meaning

"It's kind of a reflection of where I am at the moment. I probably feel the best I have in years, not only health-wise but as a person. The last three years have been an awakening for me. I'm standing up for my morals, standing up for myself, but the flip side of that coin is that there is always something inside of me that's going to make people feel like they're chewing on tin foil. For most of my life, I tended to base my opinion on myself by what people thought of me. As I got stronger, I learned to be happy in my own skin and accept that there are these fucked up things about me"-Corey Taylor

Slipknot – Sulfur OFFICIAL VIDEO

My guilt and my shame
Always sell me short, always feel the same
And my face and my soul
Always wear me thin, always under control
But the longest hours you'll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you're right
So I'll wait, but I pray that I'm wrong
Because I think I know what's going on
So let me get this straight
The only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I'm gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I'm not a failure, but I know what it's like
I can take it or leave it or die

Stay, you don't always know where you stand
Till you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur

My life is undone
And I'm a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my gods are untrue
I'm probably wrong but I'm better than you
And the longest hours I've had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I'm safe but I'm a little outside
I'm gonna laugh when I'm buried alive

Stay, you don't always know where you stand
Till you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur

Like breathing in sulfur!
Like breathing in sulfur!

Stay, you don't always know where you stand
Till you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur
Stay, you don't always know where you stand
Till you know that you won't run away
There's something inside me that feels
Like breathing in sulfur

Like breathing in sulfur
Like breathing in sulfur!
Like breathing in sulfur!
Like breathing in sulfur!
Like breathing in sulfur!
