Song Meaning

It calls people to the carpet for all types of shit. And I don't think people are doing that anymore, and if they are, it's in such a weak way. It's like "yeah we know that you're angry, but give me a fucking reason, and you better make it interesting!"

Lyrics

Slipknot - This Cold Black (Audio)04:41

Slipknot - This Cold Black (Audio)

Mother nature is a coward
Mother nature is a whore
No more presence, no more power
I pray for death, by the hour
Cut another smile into me
Into me is all you are
My artifice won't recognize me
You won't find me anymore
Post-traumatic war machines
The pessimists still won't believe
Throw away my past mistakes
It's all I can to feel
Let my weapons be your children
Let my armies be your damned
Try to suffer on in silence
Try to stop me if you can

Pneumatic destroyer!
Pathetic seducer!
Distortion sufficient!
Some day!
One day!
We'll live our lives again!

My ghosts have found their way back home
I have every right to kill my own
Every right to kill my own
I am something now that never could exist
My anguish conquers all
Pay the price and watch me fall
My only key is broken
My broken key is only me!

Pneumatic destroyer!
Pathetic seducer!
Distortion sufficient!
Some day!
One day!
We'll live our lives again!

You utter waste of tired flesh
It doesn't matter if you can't progress
Even now they still create me
Give me your ignorance – irritate me
I am made of the same debris
You want it all, but you didn't want me
Hypocrite with no real use
I'm alive, what's your excuse?

Pneumatic destroyer!
Pathetic seducer!
Distortion sufficient!
Some day!
One day!
We'll live our lives again!
Pneumatic destroyer!
Pathetic seducer!
Distortion sufficient!
Some day!
One day!
We'll live our lives again!
We'll live our lives again!
