Spit It Out Lyrics

Did you ever give a damn in the first place?
Maybe its time you had the tables turned
Cuz in the interest of all involved I got the problem solved
And the verdict is guilty...

...Man nearly killed me
Steppin' where you fear to tread

    Spit It Out is was written so totally screw the radio that wouldn't play there stuff. Now the Iowa Rock Station is playing Spit It Out everyday to show there pride.

    It's about non-fans/haters/posers/poseurs/people, who say trash about the band (All you wanna do is drag me down; Maybe it's the way you gotta spread a lotta rumor fodder
    Keepin' all your little spies and leaving when you realize;
    Backstab - don't you know who you're dissin'?)
    and Corey wants them to just say whatever crap they feel like to their face, instead of behind their back. 'Spit It Out' as in, 'Quit beating around the bush, if you hate me, tell me, so I can punch you and we can continue on with our lives.' ('Bout time I set this record straight
    All the needlenose punchin' is making me irate
    Sick o' my bitchin' fallin' on deaf ears
    Where you gonna be in the next five years?
    The crew and all the fools, and all the politix
    Get your lips ready, gonna gag, gonna make you sick
    You got dick when they passed out that good stuff
    Are you sick of me?
    Good enough, had enough!)
    Could also have a dual reference to some other instance of someone saying crap behing Corey's/someone's back.

    Spit it out is obviously an angry song, written in retaliation to a Des Moines, Iowa radio station who liked to bash Slipknot and not play their material. Two years later, Spit It Out was in that station's regular rotation.... go figure... Another side note to add about Spit it Out, it was the original single off the self titled album, it's video was based on "The Shining" and was then immediately banned from MTV due to it's violent undertones.

    This song says to everyone that they need to stop candy coating bullshit and just spit out what you have to say reguardless of what anyone thinks. Say what you mean, not what people expect of you.

    A man over-estimates the size of the burger portion . . . finds himself gagging . . . and subtley spits it out into a pink napkin. Definitely true! Woof woof woof

    In early interviews it has been stated the song is directed at a DJ that bad mouthed Slipknot and refused to play their music on some radio station... If you do a little research it isn't hard to find out which Jock and Radio Station it's pointed at.

    My opinion is he could be talking about posers, the way he says "where ya gonna be in the next five years" could suggest that there band actually does the real shit while they just fake it and they have no future.

    This song is about all the fake shit in the world. The posers and the wannabes. It's telling you to either be yourself or get the fuck out! You need to listen to this song, its awesome. And they REFUSE to play that here in the NC on ANY station so you know what? I'm moving to Iowa. :DDD

    I think its a mob song... I mean listen to the lyrics.

    Payoffs don't protect
    and you can hide if you want but ill find you
    comin up behind you

    i just think it sounds like a mob song

    cause in the interest of all involved, I got the problem solved and the verdict is guilty

    This is how Corey Taylor explains this song on the welcome to our neighborhood dvd

    he says that it is about a kid who falls in love with a girl and the girl gets killed, and he finds out that she was hiding lots of things from him which he would never find out

    in other words he wants her to "spit it out"

    This song is about posers and the like. It's against anyone who talks shit, or talks the talk, but won't buck up, or walk the walk.

    On a more specific basis, Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit were a less general target of this song. They certainly apply to the "poser" ideals, and have been causing JJ and the boys lots of trouble.

    IOWA! 515 WHAT!!

    i always thought this song was about how a record company screwed them over by using them to get money, so they used them basically that's where spit it out came from.
    "spit it out" meaning once your done with it spit it out and get rid of it.
