The Heretic Anthem - Slipknot

The Heretic Anthem

Iowa
metal Nu Metal Slipknot death metal Nu-metal


The Heretic Anthem is about Corey standing his ground of becoming the exact opposite of what people want him to be, to prove a point. The point of not selling out, not following people, not taking orders from people. With lyrics describing man as 555, Satan as 666, and God as 777, the theme of hate once again prevails. It is also a large 'Fuck You' to the music industry and bands that have sold out. It also states that now, Corey is teaching the young of our race (teenagers) which refers to showing them the truth of life. That it's not all pink and happy, that it can be a brutal and scary place at times. Source: http://www.black-goat.com/song_iowa.php

I'm a pop star threat and I'm not dead yet
Got a super dred bet with an angel drug head
Like a dead beat winner, I wanna be a sinner
An idolized bang for the industry killer
A hideous man that you don't understand
Throw a suicide party and I'm guaranteed to fuckin snap
It's evilsonic, it's pornoholic
Breakdowns, obscenities, it's all I wanna be

If you're 555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
Well if you're 555, I'm 666
[what's it like to be a heretic?]
If you're 555, I'm 666
[what's it like to be a heretic?]

Everybody's so infatuated
Everybody's so completely sure of what we are
Everybody defamates from miles away
But face to face, they haven't got a thing to say
I bleed for this and I bleed for you
Still you look in my face like I'm somebody new
Toy- nobody wants anything I've got
Which is fine because you're made of
Everything I'm- not

If you're 555, then I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
Well if you're 555, I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]
If you're 555, I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]

Heretic

30 seconds, 16, 8, 4, lemme tell you why
I haven't the slightest, I'm teaching your brightest
They're listening, clamoring
All the money in the world can't buy me
Go ahead, lie to me
Tell me again how you're tortured
I wanna know how you followed your orders so well
You're full of shit
You had a dream, but this ain't it

If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]
If you're 555, then I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]
If you're 555, I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]
If you're 555, then I'm 666
[What's it like to be a heretic?]
Heretic
