Prelude 3.0
Slipknot Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning | Line by Line Meaning

I don't know why
I never told you
I don't know why
I never tried

When we shed these bitter skins again

All the reasons come to life
But now it's over
Now it's over
Now it's over
Now it's over

I don't know why
You never asked me
And I don't know why
You never cared

Went we hind these little sins again

All the reasons
Have to die
But now it's over
Now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
No, no, no, no, no

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Prelude 3.0 by Slipknot seem to speak about unspoken, unfulfilled love or a relationship where the two parties never expressed their true feelings for each other. The word "why" is repeated several times, indicating a sense of confusion and regret, almost as if the singer is wondering what could have been if they had spoken up. The lines "When we shed these bitter skins again" and "When we find these little sins again" suggest the possibility of the two parties meeting again in the future and facing their demons. However, the singer seems to be resigned to the fact that it's too late, as he repeats the phrase "now it's over" several times, almost as if to convince himself that he needs to move on.


The song perhaps highlights the notion of missed opportunities, lost love, and an unfulfilled relationship. It speaks to the pain of holding onto love without the courage to openly express it. The repetitive phrases highlight the finality of this situation, which is solidified by the last "no," indicating that there is no turning back.


Line by Line Meaning

I don't know why
I am not certain about the reason for something


I never told you
I never expressed my thoughts to you


I never tried
I never made an effort to do something


When we shed these bitter skins again
When we finally let go of our past and move forward


All the reasons come to life
All the factors influencing a decision become more apparent


But now it's over
The situation has ended


You never asked me
You never inquired about my well-being


You never cared
You did not bother with my feelings or situation


Went we hind these little sins again
When we hide our small faults once more


All the reasons
All the motivations or justifications


Have to die
Have to be eliminated from consideration


And now it's over
The situation has concluded


No, no, no, no, no
An emphatic refusal or disagreement

Juan Ismael Salrach

I don't know why. I never told you
And I don't know why. I never tried
When we shed. These bitter skins again
All the reasons come to life. And now it's over
Now it's over (x3)
I don't know why. You never asked me
And I don't know why. You never cared
When we hide. These little sins again
All the reasons. Have to die
But now it's over. Now it's over. And now it's over (x6). No, no, no, no...

lyrics: coming soon

2 years later
oh what the fuck.

I don't know why...
...I never told you
I don't know why... 
...I never tried

When we shed these bitter skins again

All the reasons come to life
But now it's over..
Now it's over
Now it's over
Now it's over 

I don't know why
You never asked me 
And I don't know why
You never cared

When we hide these little sins again

All the reasons
Have to die...
But now it's over
Now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over
And now it's over! [x4]

No!

Funny to imagine, this was the FIRST new song a lot of people heard from slipknot after Iowa.. IOWA

Totman

Slipknot has a lot of phases
although that makes some fans angry at it
surely it made a lot of more fans that they wouldve had without the changing phases
guess thats much more the Slipknot way of songwritting than being attached to a single formula right?

The Homeless Guild

I was immediately surprised, and thought if I was playing the correct cd !!!

Jody Nuckols

@Noobis Welcome was released first. Then they performed Blister Exists and Three Nil live prior to release. Duality dropped before the album and was the "official" single. Similar to how "All Hope Is Gone" was posted to their myspace before that album dropped, and "Psychosocial" was the first official single

Noobis

I may be pretty late, but wasn’t duality released as a single before vol 3?
