Left Behind Lyrics

I've known faces that have disappeared in time
Find me wrapped in glass and slowly soaked in lime
All my friends have pictures made to make you cry
I've seen this and wondered what I've done to
Calcify

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

I can't stand to see your thalidomide robot face
Don't even try it! You had be a liar just to
Infiltrate me I'm still drowning

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

Take, this, away
Take, this, away
I can feel it on my mouth
I can taste you on my fingers
I can hear you like the holy ghost
And kill you if you get too close

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

(I ignore you)
As I close my eyes, I feel it all slipping away
(I come toward you)
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away
We let it all slip away

1 Thoughts & Meanings

Never really liked this song, although If I'm not mistaken it was the first single off Iowa. Smart puns, exploring the regular Slipknot themes, when you find something that makes you escape from the daily pressure -in this case, our character simply "closes his eyes", which works fine for me, it's the simplest way out of the room. Close your eyes and feel it all slipping away.
