Slipknot: Snuff Meaning

Song Released: 2009


Snuff Lyrics

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again…

So if you love me, let me go. And run away...

    This is the slow one. Its another personal one.Again, not naming names its about
    someone who helped me through a lot and i thought she felt the same way that i did and she really let me down. at the same time, it was good that she did, because it was that final push to me figuring out myself. The lyrics are pretty self explanatory.

    This song's lyrics have to be my favorite mainly because I had something that happened to me that was very similar to what the song explains. This song is really straight forward and talks about a girl that he loved and and that he did not deserve. The second part (starting with 'I still press your letters to my lips') talks about him missing her and her not fighting to keep their love strong. In the end she sold him out to save herself, meaning that she used him.

    I think indefinitely as he(Corey Taylor) has hinted towards it being about his wife Scarlett. He asked her to leave him because, he is completely different now then before. He's changed for the worse for her and he feels evil. Yet he wants her light to stay in his life because its helped so far on. But he asks her to leave him and stay away. To have no contact. Yet in the part of the song with the letters to the lips. He still misses her. He misses her so much. But knows that he cannot have her back because of the choices in between them at this point. That hes almost forced her to give and leave. That being one of the most admirable things because, its impossible to let the significant other leave because it will pain yourself. He asks her to leave for her own happiness and wellbeing. Sacrificing his own stability, and pain.

    This song is about how he tried, and gave, and sacrificed and then realized he was only being used. All his effort for nothing, he was, in the end, worthless to this woman.

    This song captures the pain of loving someone and them not loving you back. Of them not considering you to be good enough or worthy of them. They treat as nothing though you adore them. You start to hate them just as much as you love them. To you, they are naive and insensitive. They only think of themselves, though they dont realize it.

    This song is about loving someone that you let into your life to help them. You get angry at yourself for falling for them because you know they wont return it. So you ask them to go so you don't drag them down with you. Then you realize that they never cared, you realize that they were just using you. So you permanently get rid of them and it hurts soo much that if they actually cared you don't want to know because you would go back to them just to be used again.

    Personally from many experiences this song is a story of rejection and the period of wondering what you did wrong or why doesnt she feel the same way. The lyrics "my smile was taken long ago if I could change I hope I never know" to means I've gone through this once before it hasn't stopped happening and I don't know how to change it. The line "I still press your letters to my lips" means I remember all the times we had or when you made me think we were in love. Probobly my favorite line in the song is "you couldn't hate enough to love is that supposed to be enough" then "you solde out to save your self and I won't listen to your shame you ran away your all the same" to me says you stabbed me in the back or led me on I don't want to hear your apologis cause they could be lies as well and your just like everyone else who broke my heart

    How I look at this is that it's about loving someone so much that you become obsessed with that person. Then just the thought of them controls you, so when the person is untouchable (dead, married, etc.) It drives you insane. In the video Corey is following a woman and watching her, then at the end he "becomes" her to deal with the fact that he can't have her. Watch the video it really show's what the song is about, this is only my interpretation

    this song is about being loved to someone at such an intensity where u illusionised your world around to that person and atonce when that person goes away - u cant accept that the world is gone away from you

    In the video , He promised her that he will never let go....So he find his own way how to never let go...

    Love that became one sided and painful, eventually fatal then because he missed her, and to get away with killing her he assumes her life.

    i love slipknot but this song is a load of crap.it describes my dad.if you love someone enough you'll change period.i know what its like to hate what you've become. i was a herion addict for four years and on methadone for two. it's been over a year and haven't looked back.my mom divorced my dad after thirty years because he didn't want to change.i don't think corey cared to put forth the time and effort to build the relationship so he took the easy way out.even so, we all have our demons, and i prey that corey overcomes his. Jesus saves

    This is a very good song. It really speaks to me, I know the song is about love being tookin away, but what this song means to me is... I used to cut myself because it was the only thing that really helped release my pain, I never really trusted anyone so I keep all my emotions in. Anyways, to me it means letting go of something that makes you an ounce of happy but causes a ton of pain. And to only trust yourself, and the part where he says spit your pity in my soul means to me that if I told my family that I ever did that they would pity me and never look or talk to me in the same way, they won't understand why I did it. I know thats not what the song means at all, but everytime I hear this song it reminds me of what I had to overcome by myself.

    I can relate to this song completely. It's all about loving someone who you can't be with is what I think. He still loves her deeply and misses her with everything in him. The part where he says if you still care don't ever let me know gives me chill bumps! He's basically telling her that she can go to hell after ripping him apart. Amazing song all together. One of my top 5 by slipknot even though it's slow.

    I used to love a girl. I met her in january. She helped me going throught the maze that I was in and she promised that once she make it thought her own problem we'll be able to search together for a common happiness which is what keeped me alive all winter long. 6 month later I found out that she had a boyfriend for the last 5 month and she was hiding it. She just said that she was scared to loose me and left me heart broken without a news. I feel like killing myself when I hear this song...in fact. A little part of me die everytime It plays.

    It's how he wants this girl and cant have her and since he can't he kills the idea of her in his mind and lives her every move in real life. He enjoys killing her and then enjoys living as her.
