Stone Sour/Corey Taylor

tabbed by Dr. Linus Rebar

This is a great song, but not the best Stone Sour song.
And just to make the general public aware, Stone Sour
is actually a pretty good rock band too. This was just
Corey Taylor's emotional release. The rest of the Stone
Sour CD is pretty hard though, just to let any Maggots
who think that Corey Taylor's gone soft know.


Tuning: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb (Down 1/2 step)

Additional Lyrics:

[Intro]
[Verse]
Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater

[Verse]
You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be 
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

[Intro]
[Verse]
Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me shit to digest

[Bridge]
I wish I had a reason;
my flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

[Chorus]
You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

[Solo]

[Verse]
Wish I'd died instead of lived
A zombie hides my face
Shell forgotten
with its memories
Diaries left
with cryptic entries

[Chorus]
And you don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on,
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

[Chorus]
You don't need to bother;
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on:
I'll never live down my deceit
[Outro]

I meant to put a "p" there. Sorry about that. I'm pretty sure that it's correct other than that.
