 Deadbody: Thanks for taking the time to write. I imagine your critique of the review is the fact that I chose to, somewhat, ignore the lyrics of the group. In response, I would have to say that the lyrics were exactly what I expected and, as such, I felt that they didn’t bear mentioning either way because of this. If, however, you are truly wanting me to respond to the lyrics you have posted here, I’d have to say the same thing that I might to Slipknot’s own lyricist: You’re no Paul Verlaine, but that’s also not the point.

 Gotta go with Burns here: if you're looking to Slipknot for lyrics, you're barking up the wrong tree. And if you're looking for intelligent commentary on said lyrics, well, you're even further off the beaten path.
