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 carried me without a doubt through one of the worst break ups i have ever had. That helpless feeling of missing someone and then you slowly start to realize you are better off, become angry and realize "it took the death of hope to let you go" That to me is the most powerful lyric in the entire song. The absolute low you have to hit, to let that glimmer of hope die.

    I think this song is about a relationship that's obvious, he loves a women but feels like hes not good enough, he just wants to support her but she keeps using him, he pushes her away, but then misses her; but then again pushes her away, soon realizing what shes done to him, and how shes made him depressed and angry he ends up leaving for good, yet still loves her.

    This song is so powerful by the way he expresses his feelings towards her/him. I'm going through this situation as I'm typing this out and I've got to say He captures the way I'm feeling like he is here goj,g through it with me and if anyone's been through or goj,g through this then I hope you find your way out of this as quickly and with as less pain as you can.I loved this girl with my all and she always leaves me and I get the part of feeling being used because I feel so fucking used up right now. My love for her had turned to hate.Even with the hate I miss her and it's fucked up to be honest.I won't be broken again by her or love again.. Fuck that shit!!!! Love this song tho \m/

    It's a song about getting out of the Darkness after being left alone.
    The First Part, is the initial Darkness and not knowing what to do next. I myself know this sting, Being left suddenly and unable to do anything but sit by and watch it happen.
    the Second part is trying to come to terms with what happened.
    the last part where it picks up the Tone. "Break yourself against my stones and spit your pity in my soul" meaning i wont be broken by you again, no matter what you say or do.
    you Dont Deserve me.

    Okay I have a bad memory with this song but I still love the song my ex bf told me to listen to this song and it explained what happend to us and in one of the lyrics it "if u love me let me go and run away befor I know my heart is just to dark to care I think he's trying to say that he wants this girl to get out of his life bc he's wants what's best for her and he thinks he's not good enough for her bc he's changed so much but love is also a pain in the ass....... In another lyric it says if I can't change I hope I never know I think it's saying that he wants to change but he can't figure out how another lyric says you sold me out to save urself she used him Okay one more lyric it say I still press ur letters to my lips he misses he alot but can't have her back

    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...
