Bother (Clean) (Album Version) – Stone Sour
Wish I was too dead to cry

My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater

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

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

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

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

And you don’t need to bother
I don’t need to be (I don’t need to be)
I’ll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I won’t let go ’til it bleeds

You don’t need to bother
I don’t need to be (I don’t need to be)
I’ll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on (once I hold on)
I’ll never live down my deceit.
