Snuff Lyrics

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence,
And leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...
So if you love me, let me go.
And run away before I know.
My heart is just too dark to care.
I can't destroy what isn't there.
Deliver me into my fate
If I'm alone I cannot hate
I don't deserve to have you...
My smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know
I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts,
Of me that savor every kiss
I couldn't face a life without your light
But all of that was ripped apart...
When you refused to fight
So save your breath, I will not hear.
I think I made it very clear.
You couldn't hate enough to love.
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren't my friend.
Then I could hurt you in the end.
I never claimed to be a saint...
My own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go
So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won't listen to your shame
You ran away - you're all the same
Angels lie to keep control...
My love was punished long ago
If you still care, don't ever let me know
If you still care, don't ever let me know...

Even as stated in an interview with Corey, the lyrics are self explainatory. Its not about drugs (no clue where you get that), but about a relationship. Watch the music video as it portrays a woman of whom he refers to. This song has helped me overcome a similar situation after my love left me after several years, and for no real reason. Only the infamous words of, "we can't be together."

My BFF told me 2 listen 2 it. I have tears running down my cheeks. Every word perfectly tells my feelings due 2 the past & not trusting now, even tho I so wanna believe he really feels the way he says

the band has set the tone for future metal bands, generations to come. they are the equivilent to Jonny Cash in the metal world. their music knows no bounds period,there is only one thing to do,listen

One of the best songs ever written, didnt listen to Slipknot for ages cuz, well ive grown and the music didnt fit my new lifestyle. But this song comes out just when the love of my life left me.Timing

this song makes me feel of how my ex made me feel (while we were gong out) i felt like the worst person on earth i felt like i was not there and then i glady broke it off and ive missed her ever since
angel of faith 07/04/11,15:21

a broken x introduced me to this song, sadly i lived and loved it. I miss that smile and the heart i was blessed to have a short lifetime. I will stick with country easier to figure out. no deception.
