Music Monday: Duality by Slipknot.

MusicMonday

Welcome once again to Music Monday where I offer you all a song that I really like. If anyone wants to join in then please feel free to have a go! 🙂

Slipknot: Duality.

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside
If the pain goes on

I have screamed until my veins collapsed
I’ve waited last, my time’s elapsed
Now, all I do is live with so much fate
I’ve wished for this, I’ve bitched at that
I’ve left behind this little fact:
You cannot kill what you did not create
I’ve gotta say what I’ve gotta say
And then I swear I’ll go away
But I can’t promise you’ll enjoy the noise
I guess I’ll save the best for last
My future seems like one big past
You’re left with me ’cause you left me no choice

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
If the pain goes on,
I’m not gonna make it!

Pull me back together
Or separate the skin from the bone
Leave me all the pieces, and then you can leave me alone
Tell me the reality is better than dream
But I found out the hard way,
Nothing is what it seems!

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside
If the pain goes on

All I’ve got, all I’ve got is insane [Repeat x4]

I push my fingers into my eyes
It’s the only thing that slowly stops the ache
But it’s made of all the things I have to take
Jesus, it never ends, it works it’s way inside
If the pain goes on


Taken from the album: Vol. 3 The Subliminal Verses (2004).

    1. Well, it’s Slipknot, nuff said and crazy people.😂 Not a slipknot fan then?🤔 What music do you listen to? If it’s Justin Bieber and the like then they are never likely to appear on Music Monday.😂 Saying that, yeah, I’d probably poke myself in the eye if I had to listen to Bieber.😂 Guess my crazy people point was right cos I’m not always normal.😂😜

      1. Hahaha! Well- I mean I like some of Bieber’s of stuff. He has that one where he drunkenly forgot all the words to Despacito and sang “I don’t know the words so I say burrito” and that was pretty good. 😂

        But honestly I listen to everything. I’m a big fan of anything that came out of the 90s. I think I actually have liked a couple of Slipknots songs before. Right now I’m obsessed with that song Old Town Road- the remix. I love Twentyone Pilots, Imagine Dragons, Eric Church, TOM PETTY. You can insult any of my other music tastes. If you insult Tom I’m not sure we can be friends anymore. 🤣

  1. Subliminal Verses I believe is my go to album when I am in the mood for them. I was inspired to write a poem with the song Circle not long after my father passed away… Song still gives me the feels😔
