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 meant 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 towards 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 towards you
We all got left behind, we let it all slip away

I can't stand to see your thalidomide robot face
I don't even try it you have to 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 towards 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 towards 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 towards 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 towards 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
Slip away, slip away, slip away

Left Behind Meanings & Interpretations

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.
