Here are the Lyrics for Slipknot’s New Song “Unsainted”

0

With a new Slipknot track “Unsainted” out in the world as of this morning, now comes the part where we analyze every iota of it, from the song itself to the band’s new masks to the identity of the new percussionist. Next up: the lyrics!

Corey Taylor said in an interview this past winter that the lyrics on Slipknot’s new album were “dark and vicious,” speaking openly about a very difficult time he’d been through during his divorce. Is “Unsainted” about the split with his now ex-wife? There are certainly hints that it could be, although as usual Taylor uses a whole lot of metaphor making it difficult to tell for certain. I suppose it’s one of those “your own interpretation is the correct one” situations. Take a look:

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

I’m just weathering a rough patch… another villain with an itch to scratch
Denial is the darkest when you live in a hole
Why does the Hell make you feel so cold?
Make a move and you pay for it/Pick a Lord and you pray to it
You’re so demanding when you want the truth, but your stories don’t read for me
Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

Indecision Overload/Keep a buckle on the Devil and your eyes on the road
Reaching out for the hand of God, but did you Think- You’d- Shake- Your- Own?
This Killing Field is all grown over- the Motherfucker wants it wild
Go sew your oats in alphabetical order/the Anti-Antagonist is back- in- style
MYOPIC/Cannot See Straight/DYSTOPIC/One Sin Too Late
You got to lie if you want to believe, but your Bibles don’t work on me
Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting… GO

Did you think you could win? And fill me in?
Did you think you could do it again? I’m not your sin
I was all that you wanted and more- but you didn’t want me
I was more than you thought I could be
So I’m setting you free- I’m setting you free

You’ve Killed The Saint In Me How Dare You Martyr Me
You’ve Killed The Saint In Me

Oh, I’ll never kill myself to save my soul/I was gone but how was I to know?
I didn’t come this far to sink so low/I’m finally holding on to letting go

You’ve Killed The Saint In Me/How Dare You Martyr Me
You’ve Killed The Saint In Me/How Dare You Martyr Me
