Scissors (8:25)

Cover of Slipknot

From Slipknot and 15 other releases

Number 1, drummer Joey Jordison wrote the lyrics to the song Scissors. It seems as if the song was about a person peeling away his skin and cutting open his own body. This is the thirteenth track on the Slipknot album (not counting 742617000027 or Frail Limb Nursery), and the last visible song.

During the recording sessions of Slipknot, “Heartache and a Pair of Scissors” was recorded. The title was shortened to just “Scissors”. Although the lyrics were pre-written, Corey was screaming very hard and painfully, and added a new set of words in a new section of the song that had not been in the demo version.

Scissors is an extremely emotion-filled and sick song. Some compare the end of the Slipknot CD to the end of Korn’s Daddy, because both vocalists go completely crazy as they finish the song.

    I buy CDs, but I don't have this one. I know about the conversation after this song and then "Eeyore". Eeyore is an awesome song. I have 26 CDs.
