Gently Lyrics

Gently, my mind escapes into the relaxing
world of pleasure, a pleasure that'll take
my mind off the reality of my life,
my past life... life as I know it now.

And whatever may come, it slowly
disappears to somewhere in the back
of my...

    This one's an easy guess. It's basically about drifting off into another world, possibly using drugs or alcohol. That's just my personal interpretation, blame me if it's not true, but that's what it seems to me. I love this song. My favorite Slipknot song. Go Corey Taylor! ^^

    This song is very unique. It is about just getting away from reality. The bass line is so simple but so powerful at the same time. Really one of Slipknot's best songs.

    One of my favorite songs by slipknot. Gently represents the innocence of escaping your deepest thoughts and secrets.

    At the end however, it seems that Corey has to abandon his peaceful thoughts to deal with his abusive life with his father.

    Good interpretation, and Umbra actually means "Shadow" in Latin so in my opinion it is like stepping into a shadow and staying there, being free minded and giving yourself time to think of things. And when Corey says "This mode is incredible" i think it is meaning the mode you are in and you are in a state of mind that can be overwhelming.

    This song is NOT about Corey or drugs. The original singer, Anders wrote this song. It's about stepping into the umbra. The spiritual world that rests deep within the human mind. I spend a lot of time there myself. Listen to the original version of the song on the Mate.Feed.Kill.Repeat album. You can download it from Metabolic666.com if you can't find the CD.

    This song is about when Corey did drugs. The drugs took him "into the realaxing world of pleasure".

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
