Slipknot – Not Long for This World Lyrics

It wasn’t really hard to say
Hard to say
Not long for this world
Not long for this world
Not long for this world
[Outro]
Not long for this world
Not long for this world
Not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world
I was not long for this world Play this song
[Verse 1]
Cutting and scratching
Scar the same
Angles up
Edges are soft
Broken veins
I know I’m bitter
Full of rage
You’ll be too
What I’ve been through
All is just a difficult stage
[Chorus 1]
So decide
Tell me I’m gonna die
It’s already gone away
Decide
Tell me, are you not alive? It wasn’t really hard to say
Hard to say
Not long for this world
[Verse 2]
Carving or biting
We bleed for keeps
Out of control
Into the cold
Hell repeats
God, I’m starving
Spreading me thin
I am a story, my soul is for sale
Trust is such an arrogant thing
[Chorus 2]
So decide
Tell me I’m gonna die
It’s already gone away
Decide
Tell me, are you not alive? It wasn’t really hard to say
Hard to say
Not long for this world
Not long for this world
[Bridge]
I know this shit
You ain’t
There’s nothing mellow with the drama
You live and pray
You like your secrets to be kept in the family
You don’t get credit for you’re really good behavior
You’ll be a failure
You don’t seem to get what I’m saying
And I’m sick and tired of explaining
Good night, goodbye, good luck
There’s nothing worse than a good manifesto
I’m not impressed now
[Pre-Chorus]
The greatest conclusion that I ever had
Was when I woke up and said: “That’s enough”
Living never felt so bad
You don’t accept it and I don’t care
Bury yourself above all your guilt
When you’re ready, you will mean it
[Chorus 3]
So decide
Tell me I’m gonna die
It’s already gone away
Decide
Tell me, are you not alive?
