Slipknot – All Out Life

Sometimes I like to find other ways of messaging, usually when someone has already found the words to say it much better.  Plus Slipknot fucking rocks!  Excited for the new album.  Slightly older, but very effective message.  Seems fitting for the times.  So here’s one for the “Elites”.

Slipknot – All Out Life

Get “All Out Life” : https://slipknot1.lnk.to/alloutlife

[Verse 1]
What a world, the horizon’s
Coming like a hell-bent killing machine
Can’t afford to be the goddamn wreckage
Burn it all again at a million degrees
Calling all the adamant upper-level
Undefeated counterfeit cunts with a reason to fear
Throw away all the meaningless shit that’s clinging
The enemy is here, I said stop

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Give it to three
I’m gonna show you how to do it if you know what I mean
One by one against, give me the name
All you shiny pretty never-wills ruined the game
You hold all the keys, so the chains shouldn’t hold you
I know you heard me, I fucking told you

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
No excuses, I challenge you to all out fucking life

[Verse 2]
Drop that shit and put it on a pedestal
Children are afraid of the gods
Raise your hands and show me what’s impossible
That makes us even, never tell me the odds
What a bore, I’m getting stuck in a metaphor
I don’t wanna go to sleep
I need a breakdown quick in negotiations
Get it all together and remember to seethe, stop

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Give it to three
I’m gonna show you how to do it if you know what I mean
Drive by violence, more of the same
I can see where you’re going, and I’m really ashamed
Do you think when you act or just act like you’re thinking?
I gotta know now, you better tell me

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
I challenge you to all out life

[Bridge]
We are gathered here today to get it right
Repeat after me:
“I will not celebrate mediocrity
I will not worship empty shells
I will not listen to worthless noises
I will not subject myself to selected predictable choices
My time, my attention
My quality should not be bought and sold
For convenience’s sake, ever”

[Breakdown]
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind
We are not your kind

[Chorus]
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
Pay attention, it’s gonna be a while ’til I really feel alright
Old does not mean dead, new does not mean best
No hard feelings, I’m tired of being right about everything I’ve said
Yours does not mean mine, kill does not mean die
We are not your kind
No excuses, I challenge you to all out fucking life

[Outro]
All out life, yeah
I challenge you to all out fucking life, yeah
Live, live, live, life

Slipknot – New Album – Tragic Loss

Words can not express the sadness in my heart for Clown and the loss of his daughter.  The passing of his loved one came as the band is getting ready to release their new album We Are Not Your Kind.

My hearts with you, your family, and the band.  Stay strong, you have a World full of maggots that are grieving along with you.

2019 State of the Union Address – Comical Reactions

President Trump delivered the State of the Union address on February 5th, 2019.  I decided to put together a few highlights.  I have quotes from President Trump’s Speech, with the reactions that followed.  Rather comical.  Enjoy!

President Trump: “The U.S. economy is growing almost twice as fast today as when I took office, and we are considered far and away the hottest economy anywhere in the world. Not even close.”

Feelz The Bern

President Trump: “But we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good.
Together we can break decades of political stalemate, we can bridge old divisions, heal old wounds, build new coalitions, forge new solutions and unlock the extraordinary promise of America’s future.”

AOC

President Trump: “And more than 1,500 sadistic traffickers have been put behind bars.”

AOC

President Trump: “San Diego used to have the most illegal border crossings in our country. In response, a strong security wall was put in place. This powerful barrier almost completely ended illegal crossings.”

Kamala

President Trump: “Simply put, walls work and walls save lives.”

Chucky

President Trump: “All Americans can be proud that we have more women in the work force than ever before.”

Dems Celebrate Women

President Trump: “The next major priority for me and for all of us should be to lower the cost of health care and prescription drugs and to protect patients with pre-existing conditions.”

Romney

President Trump: “I’m also proud to be the first president to include in my budget for a nationwide paid family leave so every new parent has the chance to bond with their newborn child.”

Chucky Rolling Play-doh Snakes

President Trump: “I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in a mother’s womb.”

Chucky2

President Trump: “We are born free and we will stay free.”

Feeling The Bern

President Trump: “Tonight, we renew our resolve that America will never be a socialist country.”

Never Be A Socialist Country

President Trump: “Together we represent the most extraordinary nation in all of history. What will we do with this moment? How will we be remembered? I ask the men and women of this Congress, look at the opportunities before us. Our most thrilling achievements are still ahead. Our most exciting journeys still await.
Our biggest victories are still to come. We have not yet begun to dream. We must choose whether we are defined by our differences or whether we dare to transcend them.”

Maggot Re-Surfacing

I’m a Maggot.  When Slipknot hit the shelves, wasn’t but 500 miles or so away from their home town.  As kids, my friends and I, would blast our car stereos with “Surfacing” cranked at full volume.  We’d scare the hell out of old folks and others, not prepared for the throat ripping vocals.

Later in life, some good buddies of mine got signed by the Clown, and a record company just getting it’s feet wet with Metal.  Shitty ending for my friends in the band, but I was able to meet the Clown and Sid.  When I met the Clown, I hiked up my sleeve to show him my tattoo.  The tattoo is the lyrics from “Surfacing” as follows:

“Fuck it all! Fuck this world!
Fuck everything that you stand for!
Don’t belong! Don’t exist!
Don’t give a shit!
Don’t ever judge me!”

He pointed to my tattoo, and said “If there is one message that we stand for, that is it right there.”

Be you.  Even if it’s not popular.  Always be true to yourself.
