The Shape is the ninth song from Slipknot's second album Iowa.


Song MeaningEdit

"In The Shape, someone is experiencing a significant problem. He is really confused and does not want to come out and say it because he's not sure how to deal with it. He uses a lot of metaphors trying to get out his feelings, but it's so hard that he can only manage to "beat around the bush" for say."

LyricsEdit

Slipknot - The Shape (Audio)03:39

Slipknot - The Shape (Audio)

Destroy!

Too tragic to stay with you
Too static to try for you
These scars, they swallow hard
The part of the past that's hollow and dark
Too horrid to kill for you
Too sordid to die with you
Unstable as always, come down
Everything else is just dust and sound

Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
See the shape!
Broken and thrown away!

I'd give it all away
Come take it all away
You can't resent the fear
Somebody tell me how I got here
I'd give it all to you
Come take it, it's all for you
The noise is so damn loud
But everything else is just dust and sound

Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
See the shape!
Broken and thrown away!

I don't wanna do this anymore
Everything's shit, everything's been taken
Forsaken, gotta start it over 'cause I'm hearing it backwards
Don't make sense, don't feel better
Who's better, it's not that simple
You gotta figure it out before you make things difficult
It's not a word, it's a problem, the problem was easy
Draw your conclusions, solutions
Everybody else wanna run?
Contorting, distorting, I am undone
One less propaganda nightmare fixture
Are you getting the picture?

Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
See the shape!
Broken and thrown away!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
Separate!
I've lost my only way!
See the shape!
Broken and thrown away!
Broken and thrown away!
