Music Monday: Slipknot – The Devil In I

This is a weekly meme I’ve picked up from Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s very simple, you pick a song on a Monday and share it! Never one to turn away from the chance to share my exquisite taste in music I’m loving taking part in this every week, so thanks, Drew!

You may find it hard to believe that a Slipknot song could bring tears to the eyes, but this song really does. This one is so poignant for how I am feeling right now, fighting the demons inside of myself as I try and get back on top of my Bipolar.

This is quite a grusome video to put the warning out there up front.

Undo these chains, my friend
I’ll show you the rage I’ve hidden
Perish the Sacrament
Swallow, but nothing’s forgiven
You and I can’t decide which of us was taken for granted
Make amends, some of us are destined to be outlivedStep inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil anymoreUnder the words of men
Something is tempting the father
Where is your will, my friend?
Insatiates never even bother
You and I, wrong or right
Traded a lie for the leverage
In between the lens in light
You’re not what you seemStep inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil
I’m not your Devil anymore

Your station is abandoned
Fooled you ’cause I know what you’ve done
Sensation, deprivation
You should’ve burned when you turned on everyone

So, step inside, see the Devil in I
Too many times, we’ve let it come to this
Step inside, see the Devil in I
I know you’ll find your answers in the end
Step inside, see the Devil in I
You’ll realize I’m not your Devil anymore

So step inside, step inside
See the Devil in I
See the Devil in I
