Song Meaning

"Its 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 3 years have been an awakening for me.Im standing up for my morals,standing up for myself, but the flip side to that coin is that there is always something inside of me thats going to make people feel like theyre 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

Lyrics

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 ‘Til 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 ‘Til you know that you won’t run away There’s something inside me that feels Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR

STAY - You don’t always know where you stand ‘Til you know that you won’t run away There’s something inside me that feels Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR
