Snuff, Corey Taylor

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 before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can’t destroy what isn? t there
Deliver me into my fate
If I’m alone I cannot hate
I don’t deserve to have you
Ooh, my smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know
I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn’t face a life without your lights
But all of that was ripped apart when you refused to fight
So save your breath, I will not care
I think I made it very clear
You couldn’t hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren’t my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
Ooh, my own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go
So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won’t listen to your shame
You ran away, you? re all the same
Angels lie to keep control
Ooh, my love was punished long ago
If you still care don’t ever let me know
If you still care don’t ever let me know

inizio maggio

Sole alto alle tredici
la terra boccheggiava assetata
qualche albero non ha resistito
si è piegato spoglio e arrugginito
tra chiazze di fiori gialli
e papaveri sempre fieri
del rosso che li fa belli.
Stornelli declamati da passeri
autori di tanta poesia
seguiti dal coro dei grilli,
l’auditorio naturale ha offerto
prove di canto pomeridiane
per i prossimi concerti estivi.
Sudavano applausi in vesti pesanti.
