Slipknot – Solway Firth Lyrics

Play this song

[Intro]
Today, up on this hill, I’m counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm, a look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of you
Here’s an unexplainable one
Here’s an unexplainable one

[Verse 1]
While I was learning to live, we all were living a lie
I guess you got what you wanted
So I will settle for a slaughterhouse soaked in blood and betrayal
It’s always somebody else, somebody else was me
You want the real smile?
Or the one I used to practice not to feel like a failure?

[Chorus]
I don’t need you to do it for me
I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me
I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story
I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away

[Post-Chorus]
Here’s an unexplainable one
Here’s an unexplainable one
Here’s an unexplainable one

[Verse 2]
I’m not ahead of my time, I just drew the first breath
If I’m alive tomorrow
I will alleviate the pressure by cutting you out of me
I found my bottom line dead on the front lines
I know I’ll never go home
So set fire to your ships and past regrets and be free

[Chorus]
I don’t need you to do it for me
I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me
I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story
I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away

[Post-Chorus]
Here’s an unexplainable one
What have you done?
What have you done?
Yeah

[Outro]
Oh, while I was learning to live, you taught me how to die
I guess I got what I wanted
Another needle in the back through purified scarification
It wasn’t somebody else, you fucking did it to me
You want a real smile?
I haven’t smiled in years
