Slipknot: Before I Forget Meaning
Song Released: 2005
Before I Forget Lyrics
Stapled shut, inside an outside world and I'm
Sealed in tight, bizarre but right at home
Claustrophobic, closing in and I'm
Catastrophic, not again
I'm smeared across the page, and doused in gasoline
I wear you like a stain, yet I'm...

The idea is he's trying to get the point across that everything about Slipknot has changed him and made him who he is today, the "I wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one who's obscene" could be about how his mask is the responsibility that he has followed to become the sort of "leader" of the maggots and a lot of news reporters despise who is despite the fact he has put all that effort in.
I'm probably wrong, but that's what I think.

I always thought this was about a negative view on abortion, because its such a hot topic in the states.
the "I am a world before I am a man" is saying that there's life before birth.
wear you like a stain, yet I'm the one whos obscene >> pregnant teeager ? you is the child ?
and the whole slow section is about it being a choice to kill the child and have it aborted or keep it

I think that this song is about remembering where you have come from hence the lyrics "I am a world before I am a man" and the other parts of the chorus.
