Lyrics

Fuck you all

Running out of ways to run

I can't see, I can't be

Over and over and under my skin

All this attention is doing me in!

Fuck it all! Fuck this world!

Fuck everything that you stand for!

Don't belong!

Don't exist!

Don't give a shit!

Don't ever judge me!

Picking through the parts exposed

Taking shape, taking shag

Over and over and under my skin

All this momentum is doing me in!

Fuck it all!

Fuck this world!

Fuck everything that you stand for!

Don't belong!

Don't exist!

Don't give a shit!

Don't ever judge me!

And don't you fucking judge me

Burn!

You got all my love, livin' in your own hate

Drippin' hole man, hard step, no fate

Show you nothing, but I ain't holdin' back

Every damn word I say is a sneak attack

When I get my hands on you

Ain't a fucking thing you can do

Get this 'cause you're never gonna get me

I am the very disease you pretend to be

I am the push that makes you move

Fuck it all!

Fuck this world!

Fuck everything that you stand for!

Don't belong!

Don't exist!

Don't give a shit!

Don't ever judge me!

Burn!


Song Meaning

The whole basis behind the meaning of Surfacing is that they're trying to say that you really shouldn't give a fuck, or be judged by others. That you shouldn't have to answer to "anything or anyone." As part of their show, Slipknot dedicates the song to corrupt rock stars. The song is known as the "new national anthem." The lyrics "Fuck it all, fuck this world, fuck everything that you stand for, don't belong, don't exist, don't give a shit, don't ever judge me!" are the words of a generation
