Within
 1
 
 
 
 
Play Slipknot’s ‘Snuff’ song
 2
Four times and use these lyrics:
 3
 
 
 
 
I still feel your pain within my skin…
 4
 
 
 
 
Ripping out my heart again,
 5
So I can’t let you in.
 6
 
 
 
 
Silence only ever hid my truths…
 7
 
 
 
 
The Book of Life showed us the way;
 8
My fate is up to you…amen
 9
 
 
 
 
Never been one to simply move on!
 10
Like to stay in wonderland; all alone!
 11
It still seems to feel like you inside;
 12
All it took was the death of love and suicide.
 13
To find our paradise!
 14
I saw the love within your eyes;
 15
It burnt my soul to say goodbye.
 16
 
 
 
 
Oh…So now I scream “I’ve changed my mind!”
 17
But apathy has got a grip over me!
 18
 
 
 
 
Death will surely catch up, eventually…
 19
But if I have you by my side
 20
And I have your love for the rest of time;
 21
Maybe then I can truly say “Goodbye.”
 22
 
 
 
 
But only once and never again, not in this life!
 23
Happiness has gone from me again!
 24
All I’m left with within my world; is my own pain;
 25
But I never said to you, just what I knew.
 26
Just know I only ever spoke the truth.
 27
I just couldn’t do this to you!
 28
You’re much too weak to take this pain,
 29
I guess thought the crazy fool.
 30
Oh…But picture me within your heart;
 31
I’ll be your love light in the dark!
 32
 
 
 
 
Woahh!!
 33
 
 
 
 
I’ll be the one who cares!
 34
I’ll be the one who is always there!
 35
I’ll be the one you keep within;
 36
I’ll be the one you let within!
 37
I’ll be the one to teach you sin!
 38
If you would only live again…
 39
This bullet has your name on it.
 40
 
 
 
 
Oh…I’ll bury it within my skin.
 41
I’ll take you deep inside of me!
 42
 
 
 
 
I’ll open up and I will live again!
 43
 
 
 
 
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 44
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 45
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 46
 
 
 
 
Bury me with love within your mind…
 47
Dig me up to play with me, from time to time.
 48
Read what I’m so desperate… to say
 49
I’m older now and people change,
 50
If I hadn’t just walked away…again.
 51
 
 
 
 
I’d walk straight up to him!
 52
And punch him hard in the face!
 53
Such innocence you have no right to take!
 54
My psychopathic, unstoppable, rage!
 55
Would have put an end to his days!
 56
But those words I guess I couldn’t say.
 57
I guess you wouldn’t listen to them, anyway.
 58
 
 
 
 
Oh so shocked that I would let you go!
 59
I hope you know within my heart; you were the one!
 60
 
 
 
 
But these words that you must never know…
 61
Are truly spoken only to…cleanse my own soul.
 62
Now I know I had to let you go;
 63
I just wanted to tell you that…You are not alone.
 64
Just tell me that you will never go!
 65
Bury me with love and death, deep within your soul.
 66
Know your words are in my heart…
 67
But I could never let you know.
 68
I wouldn’t want to make you cry!
 69
Your tears only ever, made me want to die!
 70
I couldn’t be the one to save your life;
 71
Oh But you will never truly know,
 72
Just how much you have affected mine!!!…
 73
 
 
 
 
Woahhh!!
 74
 
 
 
 
The pain I never made you face!
 75
I kept it all deep within.
 76
I buried it deep with you, inside of me;
 77
But I never did find any kind of release.
 78
I guess I just couldn’t let it ever end up like this.
 79
So pity me for all I should have said!
 80
Lay with me once more my love,
 81
In our broken bed.
 82
Kiss me deep within your soul of light;
 83
Stay with me and hold me tight!
 84
 
 
 
 
If you still care I just want you to know…
 85
 
 
 
 
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 86
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 87
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 88
 
 
 
 
Together we will surely show this,
 89
This loneliness, its death;
 90
For I will never let you go.
 91
I will only ever walk away.
 92
For I have seen the death of love…
 93
Once more in time, I should…have tried.
 94
 
 
 
 
But these words of mine,
 95
I guess I just could never say!
 96
I miss you right now my bitter love!
 97
I think of you now and then; sometimes other stuff.
 98
But I want you to know, you are always in my heart.
 99
I never truly left you; but I did depart…
 100
I never told you how I felt.
 101
Oh…I had to leave your broken heart;
 102
But never weep because of me!
 103
 
 
 
 
Never say…you are unhappy.
 104
 
 
 
 
You will never be alone,
 105
For you are buried in my soul
 106
And if something I guess I could have changed;
 107
I would have left you to your pain,
 108
I would still have walked away
 109
And hope to God, I pray!, I pray!
 110
That you would only ever have followed me!
 111
My love for you shall never go away.
 112
I feel like I need your love to breathe!
 113
 
 
 
 
I think I need you!
 114
Trapped inside of me!
 115
I think I saw something in your eyes;
 116
Oh…
 117
I think I saw my paradise, but now I guess I’ll never truly know!
 118
 
 
 
 
Woaahhh!!!!
 119
 
 
 
 
I think I’ve hit an all time low!
 120
So come to me, I’ll embrace you once again!
 121
I’ll speak to you with honesty, my beloved friend;
 122
Let me pay my penance for my sin.
 123
Let me tell your heart and you soul!
 124
That you my love, shall always be kept within.
 125
I keep you safe within my dreams.
 126
 
 
 
 
Oh I offer shelter to your hurt and pains,
 127
I only ever wanted to let you in!
 128
 
 
 
 
I only ever wanted to let you in!!!
 129
 
 
 
 
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 130
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 131
PLAY TUNE AGAIN…
 132
 
 
 
 
So you can truly believe my words when I say…
 133
 
 
 
 
I will never walk away;
 134
In the distance I see your faith.
 135
 
 
 
 
One last time you smiled at me and then…
 136
 
 
 
 
You walked away, then you felt my hand;
 137
Land upon your hand again…
 138
 
 
 
 
I love you, I always have!
 139
I just didn’t understand!
 140
But all these words I keep within;
 141
I’ll never hurt you; I’m your friend!
 142
I’m sorry I just couldn’t let you in,
 143
But I believed you would be better off in the end;
 144
If you never saw my face…
 145
 
 
 
 
Oh if once more I had just walked away;
 146
You would never have read your words
 147
And all of this would be a waste!
 148
 
 
 
 
But if I were to tell you how I really feel…
 149
 
 
 
 
I’d simply scream at you “This is for real!”
 150
Let’s once more live in sin.
 151
 
 
 
 
So I can show you my love within…
 152
That you shall always be kept with me, deep within.
 153
 
 
 
 
So save my soul I need you to care;
 154
I need you more than I need air!
 155
I need your love to set me free;
 156
I need you to become one with me.
 157
I need to tell you I love you my Friend,
 158
I’ll never truly hurt you…not in the end;
 159
I never claimed to be a saint.
 160
Oh in wonderland I love your soul,
 161
It took her death to let me know, I love you so!
 162
 
 
 
 
Woaahhh!!!
 163
 
 
 
 
So come be with me or break my hope!
 164
You My Love; I believe You could be the one;
 165
I only tried to be of help,
 166
But you are strong enough to help yourself
 167
And I will pay penance for your pain!
 168
I will not leave, I’m here to stay!
 169
Angels like me fear our souls;
 170
 
 
 
 
Oh for my love was banished long ago,
 171
If you still care, just know I love you so!
 172
 
 
If you still care, just know you are the one!
 173
