The Virus Of Life is the thirteenth song from Slipknot's third album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)

MeaningEdit

This song is about how Corey Taylor has touched people's lives without them knowing it. It also praises those he has touched. I think this song is about how people disregard problems or tend to not care and all that, hate, spite, fear, want, greed or in little complacency can sneak into your life before you know it and when you do it's too late everything is ruined by then. In alternate, it can also be song about manipulation and take control of a person's life, or a rapist hiding in a woman's house (guest edit for popular opinion)

Or it could just be about the way life works. Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat. Every life feeds upon another.

Slipknot - The Virus of Life (Audio)

I can see you, but you can't see me
I could touch you, and you wouldn't even feel me
Wait a second and you'll settle down
I'm just waiting till you really let your guard down
You're relaxed, you're sublime, you're amazing
You don't even know the danger you're facing
If I'm quiet, I'll slide up behind you
And if you hear me, I'll enjoy trying to find you
I've been with you all day
I'm trying to stay calm
I'm impatient, and it's really hard to breathe
I'm going to empty you and fill you in with me
Just keep the violence down
Not yet, don't make a sound
Oh God, I'm feeling it
It's reaching fever pitch
My skin is caving in
My heart is driving out
No mercy, no remorse
Let nature take its course

Watching - bring me to my knees
Waiting - I am your disease
Lover - set my symptom free
Covered - you can't love me

I'm sweating through my veins
I'm trying to hold on
It's unbearable, it's almost worse for me
I'm gonna tear you apart and make you see

Bring me to my knees
Waiting - I am your disease
Lover - set my symptom free
Covered - you can't love me

This is the virus
The virus of life
This is inside us
The crisis, the knife
This is the virus
The virus of life
This is inside us
The crisis, the knife
It's almost time to play
It's time to be afraid
I can't control the pain
I can't control in vain
Oh God, I'm ready now
You're almost ready now
I'm gonna love you now
I'm gonna break put you down
I see you in the dark
I see you all the way
I see you in the light
I see you plain as day
I wanna touch your face
I wanna touch your soul
I wanna wear your face
I wanna break your soul

Watching - bring me to my knees
Waiting - I am your disease
Lover - set my symptom free
Covered - you can't love me
