Published on:

Slipknot’s highly anticipated 7th studio album, The End, So Far, drops September 30.

While the 30th obviously can’t come soon enough, we just got graced with another new Slipknot song from the album, ‘Yen,’ which is a fast follow up to the recently dropped ‘The Dying Song (Time To Sing).’

This is technically the 3rd single from The End, So Far as 2021’s ‘The Chapeltown Rag’ will also be on the album.

You can find the lyrics to ‘Yen’ below along with an embed of the audio. Happy listening and screaming along, maggots.

Lyrics to new Slipknot song ‘Yen’

[Verse 1]
You’re the sin that I’ve been waiting for
The hands around my throat
It’s all I can think about
The smell of sweat and blood
I would feed you all my pleasures
Just to drown in all of yours
Have you heard of me?
Are you hurting me?
Let me savor what I’m waiting for
A chance to make me choke
You’re all I can think about
The taste is red in rust
Can I hold you in my mouth
Until I fade into this form?
Can you covet me?
Will you breathe for me?

[Chorus]
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my death begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my dеath begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you

[Verse 2]
I don’t know what has happеned yet
A surge of panic [?]
Worry when it’s not a fact
This game is run by me
All the words were retribution
Only adapt to revenge
Overpower me
Devour me

[Chorus]
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my death begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my death begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you

[Refrain]
Show me all the depths are the same
Show me you’ll remember my name
Show me all the depths are the same
You will remember my name[Bridge]
I wish this pain could last forever
Forever
I wish this kill could make me suffer
Forgo[Chorus]
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my death begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you
As the knife goes in, cut across my skin
When my death begins
I wanna know that I would die for you
I died for you
