"Me Inside" is the eighth track on the reissue and the sixteenth track on both the original digipak and the 10th anniversary editions of Slipknot.

Background

The song was initially written by Anders Colsefni, this version is also called "The Me Inside" by fans. When Corey joined the band, it was the first song they recorded with him on vocals and new lyrics. In February of 1999, "Me Inside" was re-recorded for Slipknot's debut album. The album version closely resembles the demo version with Corey's vocals. There is a different second verse, and it is in a higher key, but the two are very similar.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Inside, inside, inside, inside
Inside, inside, inside, inside

[Verse 1]
Giving in to what has got me
Bleeding claustrophobic, scarred
Severed me from all emotion
Life is just too fucking hard
Snap, your face was all it took
'Cause this need ain't doing me no good
Fall on my face, but can't you see?
This fucking life is killing me

[Pre-Chorus]
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside

[Verse 2]
Too far gone, I'm catatonic
Leaving you to criticize
Empty shell and running naked
All alone, lobotomized
Back and forth between my hang-ups
It isn't easy to be hated
Where do ya go? What do ya do?
Simpleton, impromptu
Crazy eight, I never cared
Not once, got to get away

[Pre-Chorus]
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside
Tearing me inside

[Chorus]
I wasn't promised a thing
You keep mocking me
But you will never again
Before you know it, after you're gone

[Bridge]
You're gone, you're gone
Somos feos y apestamos pero reinamos todo, motherfucker
[We are ugly and we suck but we rule everything, motherfucker]
You're gone, you're gone

[Chorus]
I wasn't promised a thing
You keep mocking me
But you will never again
Before you know it, after you're gone

[Outro]
Gone, gone, gone
Pray
