Slipknot – ‘The Negative One’ Lyrics

Slipknot has posted the lyrics for “The Negative One”, the first new song released by the band in six years. The track is taken from the group’s upcoming fifth album, which is due out in October.

Slipknot – The Negative One lyrics:

Fire And Caffeine
A Lot Of Nicotine
I’m Going To Burn So I Better Tell You Everything
The Competition
The Superstition
Never Mind ‘Cause You’re Never Going To Give In
It’s A Crisis, Just How You Like It
The Same Drama In A Different Disguise
I’m Bound To Walk With A Target On My Back
At Least I’m Ready For Another Attack

The Lord Of Lies
The Morning Star
You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides
Your Choices Are
The Negative One And Me

Svengali
Why Are We The Enemies?
I Never Follow And I Never Make Apologies
Your Dementias Are Gonna Getcha
Because Your Walls Can’t Support Each Other
Settle For The Cynical
You’re So Political
You’re Getting Ready ‘Cause The First Move Is Critical
Reciprocity
Somebody’s Listening
What Did We Learn From Our Time In Captivity?

The Lord Of Lies
The Morning Star
You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides
Your Choices Are
The Negative One And Me
The Negative One And Me

I Hope You Live
To See The Day
When Your World Goes Up In Flames
And As You Die
You See My Face
You’re The Only One To Blame

The Prescient
The Nascent
The Quotient (They All Will Fall)
The Cystic
Symbolic
Condition (Systemic)
Egregious
Replete With
These Lesions (Contaminate)
Succumb To
The Selfish
Creation (Your Failure)

No Accountability
Divisibility
I Point A Finger But It’s Always Looking Back At Me
The Centipede’s Pulling On The Mechanism
Unearthing Scars Of The Cataclysm
When The Innocent
Begin To Circumvent
The Color Fades But The Picture Is Vibrant
What Do You Believe?
Does It Matter Now?
Turn Away
The Killer Is Disavowed

The Lord Of Lies
The Morning Star
You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides
Your Choices Are
The Negative One And Me
The Negative One And Me

I Hope You Live
To See The Day
When Your World Goes Up In Flames
And As You Die
You See My Face
You’re The Only One To Blame

The Lord Of Lies
The Morning Star
You Had To Be Set Free
Opposing Sides
Your Choices Are
The Negative One
The Negative One
The Negative One
The Negative One And Me

Corey Taylor Says Fans Will Have To Wait A Bit Longer To Learn New Drummer’s Identity

Slipknot has unveiled the official video for “The Negative One”, the first new song released by the band in six years. The track is taken from the group’s upcoming fifth album, which is due out in October. The disc follows up 2008’s “All Hope Is Gone” and is the band’s first without founding bassist Paul Gray, who died in 2010, and drummer Joey Jordison, who was let go late last year.

Corey Taylor (#8 of Slipknot, Stone Sour) told The Pulse Of Radio that fans will have to wait a bit longer for things like the new drummer’s identity and the record’s title. “We’re keeping a lot of that under wraps, out of fairness, because we want the music to speak for itself,” he said. “We don’t want people listening to our music and making up their minds about something before they even know what the music is. So trust me, you know, when the time is right, we will give you the answers that you need, and that’s the way it is.”

Corey Taylor - Slipknot

Slipknot announced in December 2013 that it had parted ways with #1 of Slipknot. The band has not disclosed the reasons for Jordison’s exit, although the drummer issued a statement in January saying that he did not quit the group.

The clip for “The Negative One” was directed by Slipknot percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan, who has directed most of the band’s music videos and concert documentaries.

Taylor told the BBC that “The Negative One” is not the official first single from the album, explaining, “That was just a gift for the fans, like we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single [titled ‘The Devil In I’] comes out in a few weeks and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful man, its something different, people are going to lose their minds when they hear that.”

The singer told The Pulse Of Radio that Paul Gray‘s death forced the band’s remaining members pulled closer together in the studio. “It was almost like getting to know each other again,” he said. “We were all kind of grieving in our own way and dealing with things in our own way, and knowing that we had to be healthy to go in, we had to be creative to go in, and knowing that we were gonna have to fill this huge void, we just kind of took it upon ourselves to make up for that emptiness by being a little bit of Paul. Like we were all a little bit of Paul in our own way.”

Corey Taylor BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show” Interview

Corey Taylor - Slipknot

Corey Taylor (#8 of Slipknot, Stone Sour) was interviewed on last night’s edition of BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show” with Daniel P. Carter. A few excerpts from the chat follow below (transcribed by Blabbermouth.net).

On the reactions to the new Slipknot song “The Negative One”:

Corey: “People don’t know what to expect from us, and that’s kind of the way we like it.

“The great thing is that — I was telling this to somebody the other day — ‘The Negative One’ isn’t our [first official] single [from the new album]. That was just a gift for the fans; like, we wanted them to hear a piece of the album. The single [‘The Devil In I’] comes out in a few weeks, and it’s completely different. It’s more melodic, but it’s dark, it’s powerful, man. It’s something different. People are gonna lose their minds when they hear that.

“[‘The Negative One’ has] got the spirit.

“The thing I love is that everyone’s reactions are very, very similar. They love the fact that there’s new SLIPKNOT out. They also love the fact that it feels like old school meets new school. Like, you can feel the original craziness of the early stuff, but you can tell that the evolution has happened. And that’s kind of what we were shooting for, you know?!

“Remember, I said I wanted the album to feel like a cross between ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3′, and I think we did that.

“Wait ’till you hear the whole album, because this story is so deep and so honest and so crazy that people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it.”

On the speculation and rumors surrounding Slipknot‘s status in the months leading up to the release of the new album:

Corey: “It’s kind of the double-edged sword of word of mouth, isn’t it? One of the best and worst things that you can have is people talking about your band. They’re gonna talk about all the great things, but at the same time, speculation can become quote-unquote ‘fact’ over time, where it’s… you know, certain people are the ones who are described as the ‘main songwriters,’ or ‘This guy started the band,’ or, ‘That guy started the band.’ To the point where people forget the truth. They forget what the facts are. So [releasing ‘The Negative One’] is kind of a great way for us to, basically, just shut everyone up, get everyone excited, and to get them talking about positive things now with the band. Because it’s been a hell of a ride. This last four years have been insane. Whether it’s losing Paul [Gray, bass] or parting ways with Joe [drummer Joey Jordison]…

“Bands have gone through it before — other bands besides us. It’s one of those things, [where] you either rise to the occasion or you fall by the wayside, and I think we all pulled together and we rose to the occasion.”

On a possible release date for the new Slipknot album:

Corey: “I’m not sure what the definite date is. I know we’re shooting for October. Because we wanna release it right around the time the Knotfest shows [in San Bernardino, California] happen, so everyone can have it. We’ve got pretty much all the artwork done, which Shawn [co-founder, conceptualist and percussionist M. Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan] did a hell of a job on. We’re getting ready… probably in the next couple of weeks, we’re gonna shoot a video for the first official single, which is called ‘The Devil In I’. So we’re gonna shoot a video for that. [And] that’s about all I know right now. [Laughs] ‘Cause we’re still finishing mixes. We’ve still got a couple of songs left that need final mixes, then it’ll go to mastering, and everything will just start kind of coming together, and [we’ll come up] with a more stable, final release date, and as soon as we know that, the world will know.”

On Slipknot‘s touring plans:

Corey: “Starting in October, there’ll be a couple of months of touring, mainly in the U.S. and shooting over to do those two Knotfests in Japan. And then break, obviously, for the holidays. And then next year, we’re gonna start slowly moving out to the rest of the world, basically. I know we’re eyeing Europe and the U.K., we’re definitely looking at Australia, we’re looking at South America, Canada… It’s basically just the blueprint for the world, basically… There’s Southeast Asia…. I mean, there’s so much that we wanna do. Once we get that hammered out, we’ll immediately get it up and we’ll make sure that everybody knows about it.”

New Slipknot Song ‘The Negative One’ Available For Streaming

The new Slipknot song titled “The Negative One” is available for streaming on the band’s official web site – slipknot1.com. The track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album, which is probably going to be released this October via Roadrunner Records.

A music video for “The Negative One” will be released on Tuesday, August 5.

Corey Taylor told The Pulse Of Radio the band has finished recording the new CD and is now in post-production. “The album is done,” he said. “Everything’s done. Right now we’re just, we’re getting the artwork together, we’re getting all the other accouterments together, and it’s feeling really, really good. We’re just stoked, you know. Now it’s like, ‘Okay, we need to hurry up and get it out,’ you know. So yeah, we’re really excited.”

Asked what has been most fulfilling about working on new Slipknot music that he never experienced before, Corey told Full Metal Jackie: “This one, it just feels, there’s something weird about this one. Obviously this is the first album we’re making without Paul.

“After everything we went through, there’s a catharsis that comes with this, being able to throw all the emotion and aggression out that we’ve been holding onto. At the same time, getting to be creative again. Feeling that juice coming back into us. It’s been a real positive experience just from an artistic standpoint, a lyrical standpoint.

“We’re making an album that’s not just a reflection. Let’s just get new music out there. There’s something very vital with what we’re trying to do. There’s something very visceral with the emotion we’re playing with and trying to tell the story of a band that’s gone through hell, and yet we’re back. It’s been really fulfilling.”

Corey recently described the musical direction of the new SLIPKNOT material as “a great mesh of ‘Iowa’ and ‘Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)’.” He explained: “You’ve got the gorgeous melodies and the artistic direction of ‘Vol. 3′ and then you’ve got the absolute brutality of ‘Iowa’. And I think people are gonna lose their minds when they hear it.”
