Birth Of The Cruel Lyrics

Slipknot – Birth Of The Cruel Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm just a Judas, lookin' for a silver line
And tomorrow is still a step behind
Hey, hey, drama, I'd love to be a waste of your time
Oh, no, thanks for so much for wasting mine
So hear me out...

[Verse 2]
Let's hear it for the damaged
Who understands but the broken?
Developed in the arms of spite
I'm all fucked up and I make it look good
Adrenaline sight tonight

[Refrain]
I'm overthrown
I'm over your throne

[Chorus]
I'm over it, sick
Sick, sickened, I'm sickening
I'm stricken by the fist
Blessed are the fires that have burned me
Listen to this
The lesson is, never underestimate the agony
Death of the fool
Birth of the cruel

[Verse 3]
Remember how you spent the best part of forever
In a state of pure disease?
It was another thing altogether to forget
That you brought out the worst in me
Hey karma, you don't feel like I do
You just wish you'd hate like I do

[Verse 4]
We are the bitter, the maladjusted and wise
Fighting off a generation too uptight
We're all dressed up with nobody to kill
The rhetoric stops tonight

[Refrain]
I'm overthrown
I'm over your throne

[Chorus]
I'm over it, sick
Sick, sickened, I'm sickening
I'm stricken by the fist
Blessed are the fires that have burned me
Listen to this
The lesson is, never underestimate the agony
Death of the fool
Birth of the...
Birth of the cruel
Yeah

[Bridge]
Now's not the time for denying
Shifting the focus to scare
Let's not forget we're all guilty
All three dimensions polluted by earnest despair

[Refrain]
I'm overthrown
I'm over your throne
I'm overthrown
I'm over your throne
I'm over it

[Outro]
Not today, sucker
Go back to where you belong
