Slipknot — The Heretic Anthem lyrics

8, 7, 6, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...

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
