Slipknot - Gematria (The Killing Name)

SLIPKNOT


Gematria (The Killing Name) Lyrics

12/08/73, that was all I got and now you got me
All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames

Meningitis, I will survive this
Dry sockets and a schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so typical, apocalyptical
Hanging on abysmal release, Jesus
I don't need this, don't wanna be this
Icon in the making, my hands are fucking shaking

What if God doesn't care?
What if God doesn't care?

Remember, surrender, the time is now
Continue, we're in you
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

What if God doesn't care?
What if God doesn't care?

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down, we will burn your cities down
We will burn your cities down
We will burn your cities down

Feed the hungry, feed them shit
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes

Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

Remember, surrender, the time is now
Continue, we're in you
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left, nothing's real

Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down, down, we will burn your cities down
Down, down, down, we will burn your cities down
America, what if God doesn't care?

they aren't saying that God doesnt care about us, they are saying that God doesnt care whether we fight all these useless wars for him or not

Yeah. And everybody says that whoever listens to Slipknot is going to hell..... And I totally agree - but with people like us there its gonna be the place to be.

@skate emerica: thats not an opinion, i meant to explain further but theres a character limit. Look up Gehenna then if you don't believe, the Incineration of a race basically. Like hitler times

@StraTMaggot: Gematria is a numbering used in.. i think the Greek times, every letter had a number, How 666 was created too... Gehenna is the obliteration of a Race, it was sought to happen toall jews
