Metal Motivation – Slipknot – “Sulfur”

Not everyone believes like you do but not only is that okay, many times it’s the best possible thing. Few people put all of their beliefs to the test. Even fewer make the hard decision to change their beliefs, especially when that means fighting against everyone and everything you’ve ever known. Do it anyway. The only way to find peace is to strip aside everything that isn’t the truth. But don’t mistake me, it’s gonna hurt like nothing you’ve ever felt before. Like breathing in sulfur.


My Guilt and My Shame always sell me short – always feel the same
And My Face and My Soul always wear me thin – always under control
But the longest hours you’ll have in your life
Are the ones you sit through to know if you’re right
So I’ll wait, but I pray that I’m wrong
Because I think I know what’s going on

So Let Me Get This Straight… the only will is my own
I do whatever I want and stay alone
All my decisions make it untouchable and tainted
I’m gonna suffer for the rest of my life
But I will always find a way to survive
I’m not a failure, but I know what it’s like
I can take it or leave it… or die

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

My Life is undone – and I’m a sinner to most but a sage to some
And my Gods are Untrue – I’m probably wrong, but I’m better than you
And the longest hours I’ve had in my life
Were the ones I went through to know I was right
So I’m safe, but I’m a little outside
I’m gonna laugh when I’m buried alive

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR

STAY – You don’t always know where you stand
‘Til you know that you won’t run away
There’s something inside me that feels
Like Breathing in Sulfur…

LIKE BREATHING IN SULFUR
