Slipknot, “Yen” lyrics

You are the sin that I have been waiting for
The hands around my neck, that’s all I can think about
The smell of sweat and blood
I would feed you all my pleasures just to drown in all yours
Have you heard of me… do you hurt me…?
Let me enjoy what I’m waiting for, a chance to make me choke
You’re all I can think about… The taste is red and rust
May I hold you in my mouth until I disappear in this form?
Can you cover me… will you BREATHE for me…?

WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS I WILL KNOW THAT I DIED FOR YOU
I DIED FOR YOU
WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS I WILL KNOW THAT I DIED FOR YOU
I DIED FOR YOU

Don’t know what happened yet, a wave of panicked eagerness
Don’t worry when it’s not effective – this game is fine by me
All the words for retaliation only add up to revenge
Overpower me…. And devour me…

WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS I WILL KNOW THAT I DIED FOR YOU
I DIED FOR YOU
WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS I WILL KNOW THAT I DIED FOR YOU
I DIED FOR YOU

Show me all the deaths are the same/Show me you’ll remember my name
Show me all the deaths are the same/you’ll remember my name

I wish this pain could last forever… forever
I wish this killing could make me suffer… forever

WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS I WILL KNOW THAT I DIED FOR YOU
I DIED FOR YOU
WHEN THE KNIFE GOES IN- CUT MY SKIN
WHEN MY DEATH BEGINS… I KNOW I WILL DIE FOR YOU
I WILL DIE FOR YOU…
