Three Nil is the third song on Slipknot's third album Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses).

MeaningEdit

It's about how for the third time he's saying things he'll regret. And about how many people are looking harshly upon Corey for admitting he's wrong without being caught in the lie. This song pretty much kinda almost like saying he wishes people would stop reaching their hands out as he owes them something, and that he can't fix things for them when it isn't his place to fix.

Slipknot - Three Nil (Audio)

One, two, three, nil!

Chaos - it's just the beginning
Every promise I made I'm rescinding
Center mass in the middle of the monster
I'm getting tired of drowning the constant
Cry for help!
It's debatable!
The only reason that you love me is I'm hated by all
Come on!
Come see dysfunction!
I guess we're gonna leave it open for discussion
Who am I?
Where am I going?
Maybe I'm looking in the wrong direction
Maybe I'm looking for any direction

This is not my war!
This is not my fight!
This is something more!
This is not my life!
This is not my revolution!
This is not my convolution!
This is not my expectation!
This is not my desperation!

Holed up, scarred, and tamed for the hell of it
Look at me, I am the glorified malcontent
Save me, save this, all I got to do is give up
And all is forgiven
I'm sick of being the butt of a cosmic joke
And I don't get the punchline
A million people lined up for miles
To see the great big mouth
Shut up and apologize!

This is not my war!
This is not my fight!
This is something more!
This is not my life!
This is not my revolution!
This is not my convolution!
This is not my only reason to question why
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!

I'm the pariah!
Break me!
I am the liar!
Save me!
I can take anything!
Make me!
Accuse me of everything!
Kill me!
Cut off the system!
Enslave me!
Deny my existence!
Erase me!
I won't be afraid!
Try me!
I won't be unmade!
Free me!
Come on!
Break it off!
Come on!
Buy the lie!
Come on!
Say it, say it!
Come on!
Say goodbye!

Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!
Goodbye!
Oh, I didn't need to leave to stay right here
Today I say goodbye!

One, two, three, nil!
Yes!
