Slipknot - Duality



Duality is the quality or character of being twofold; dichotomy. In this song, the singer hurts himself to relieve his pain, which shows that he will not let anyone rule him or destroy him. >>


Lead singer Corey Taylor explained: "Did you ever get that headache that is just not going to go away, and you end up sticking your thumb and your middle fingers so far into your eyes just to stop the pain? It usually has to do with making a choice. you get to that point in everyday life that you have to make a decision that you may not want to, but your kind of pushed into making that decision."


The video was shot in Iowa and featured a large group of Slipknot fans. Drummer Chris Fehn explained:


"They had an audition I think at some hotel in Des Moines, and the kids lined up. It was funny, because there were people that totally weren't into the band but just wanted to go down there and see if they could get into the video and stuff. And they're like, 'No, dude, get outta here.' But that was cool. I guess some kids flew in from Europe and got in the video."



Lyrics


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 its way inside


If the pain goes on



I have screamed until my veins collapsed


I've waited as 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!



Put me back together or separate the skin from bone


Leave me all the pieces, then you can leave me alone


Tell me the reality is better than the 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 its way inside


If the pain goes on, I'm not gonna make it!



All I've got, all I've got is insane


All I've got, all I've got is insane


All I've got, all I've got is insane!


All I've got, all I've got is insane!


All I've got, all I've got is insane!


All I've got, all I've got is insane!



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 its way inside


If the pain goes on, I'm not gonna make it!



All I've got, all I've got is insane


All I've got, all I've got is insane


All I've got, all I've got is insane!


All I've got, all I've got is insane!
