Slipknot - Opium Of The People

Wake up! It’s Monday! Wake up the world! The guitars are planning to rule the world, and what fun that will be! Wake up those ears and taste the power! Get lots of exclamation points! You have to! Because this entire cut is an exclamation of Apple Spice Oatmeal with Maple Syrup overflowing along the edges! Whew! If your head isn’t banging with this, you’re a lost cause. Shout-out to a completely different flavor with Vermilion – which is a powerful musical composition. As the narrator is crying out his denials about his future, the music is building, building and he’s saying, “I won’t let this build up inside of me.” Both his vocal tones and the music prove his statement as false, but at the same time I just know he wants to believe it’s true. Beautiful work, guys! Slipknot
