Snuff Lyrics

Snuff” stands as a significant song by Slipknot, the American heavy metal band. Part of their fourth album “Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses),” released in 2004, this track diverges from their typical heavy style to a more melodic and acoustic approach.

The song, sung by Corey Taylor, embraces themes of loss and sorrow with a slower, intimate tone, deviating from Taylor’s customary aggressive vocals. Noted for its emotional resonance and departure from the band’s norm, “Snuff” holds a place as one of Slipknot’s most acclaimed and popular tracks, achieving platinum certification by the RIAA.

Snuff Lyrics


[Verse 1]

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again

[Chorus 1]

So if you love me, let me go
And run away before I know
My heart is just too dark to care
I can’t destroy what isn’t there
Deliver me into my fate
If I’m alone I cannot hate
I don’t deserve to have you
Ooh my smile was taken long ago
If I can change I hope I never know

[Verse 2]

I still press your letters to my lips
And cherish them in parts of me that savor every kiss
I couldn’t face a life without your light (Without your light)
But all of that was ripped apart when you refused to fight

[Chorus 2]

So save your breath, I will not hear
I think I made it very clear
You couldn’t hate enough to love
Is that supposed to be enough?
I only wish you weren’t my friend
Then I could hurt you in the end
I never claimed to be a saint
Ooh my own was banished long ago
It took the death of hope to let you go

[Guitar solo]

Oh, oh

[Chorus 3]

So break yourself against my stones
And spit your pity in my soul
You never needed any help
You sold me out to save yourself
And I won’t listen to your shame
You ran away, you’re all the same
Angels lie to keep control
Ooh my love was punished long ago
If you still care, don’t ever let me know
If you still care, don’t ever let me know
