Music Monday – Duality by Slipknot

Hey everyone!
It’s time for this week’s Music Monday post. For this week’s song, I have chosen Duality by Slipknot.

Music Monday was created by Drew over on The Tattooed Book Geek.


Duality by Slipknot

Duality is from Slipknot‘s 3rd studio album, Vol.3: (The Subliminal Verses) , which was released in 2004. Duality was the first single released from the album.

I went to see Slipknot at London O2 Arena on saturday, and they were absolutely amazing!


Lyrics

 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… ah!

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.

  1. I haven’t listened to Slipknot in such a long time. They kind of always freaked me out because of the masks 🙈. I understand why they did it and all but did it have to be clowns 😂. Yes I’m a bit of a whimp lol.

    1. Clown was definitely the worst for me too, as clowns are one of my biggest fears, haha! All of their masks are much different now though 🙂
