bother lyrics – corey taylor

wish i was too dead to cry
my self affliction fades
stones to throw at my creator
masochists to which i cater

you don’t need to bother
i don’t need to be
i’ll keep slipping farther
but once i hold on
i won’t let go ’til it bleeds

wish i was too dead to care
if indeed i cared at all
never had a voice to protest
so you fed me sh*t to digest

i wish i had a reason
my flaws are open season
for this i gave up trying
one good turn deserves my dying

you don’t need to bother
i don’t need to be
i’ll keep slipping farther
but once i hold on
i won’t let go ’til it bleeds

wish i’d died instead of lived
a zombie hides my face
sh*ll forgotten with its memories
diaries left with cryptic entries

and you don’t need to bother
i don’t need to be
(i dont need to be)
i’ll keep slipping farther
but once i hold on
i won’t let go ’til it bleeds

you don’t need to bother
i don’t need to be, yeah
(i dont need to be)
i’ll keep slipping farther
but once i hold on
(once i hold on)
i’ll never live down my deceits
