Stone Sour - The House Of Gold & Bones Lyrics




Oh, this is what it's coming to, another Waterloo
You want to put me underground ‘cause I’m overused
Giving up as you’re pulling me down - I will make you come unglued
You can cover me in subtleties, what an effigy
I can fake it ‘cause you’ll never be real to me
I’m innocent - I know I’m near the end
But if I can’t understand I will never win

The more I know my mind, the more I leave you all behind
Living in the shadow of doubt, I’ll never obey but I’ll always decide

All my hopes survive - I’ve got to do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones

Oh, you’re the epitome of all the shit in me
And I’m surrounded by the people I will never be
Either way I’ve got nothing to prove to a son of a bitch like you
Well, this is hell and I wanted it, but I’m an idiot
It’s a phase ‘cause I know I’m illegitimate
Kill it - I want to see it - I want to feel it
I won’t be here forever

The more I know my mind, the more I leave you all behind
Living in the shadow of doubt, I’ll never obey and I’ll always decide

All my hopes survive - I’ve got to do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones

The more I know my mind, the more I leave this world behind
Living in the shadow of doubt, I’m already gone, I’m already alive

All my hopes survive - I’ve got to do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones
All my hopes survive - I’ve got to do it alone
I will burn alive in the House of Gold and Bones
In the House of Gold and Bones
In the House of Gold and Bones

  18. quellvin serpa

    2018 here?

  19. Dain Mallory

    It sounds similar to Absolute Zero because it’s from the second album in a two-part series that’s companion to a comic book. It’s kinda why a lot of songs on the two albums sound similar.

  20. one H

    it's not as burny as the burny fires I came upon :P

  21. Tayler Black

    amazing

  22. Doreai

    Is it just me or does the way the music sounds here sound similar to absolute zero ( especially the chorus )? It sounds awesome though. :3

  23. Diogo Emiliano

    The anarchist song...

    One of the best works of stone sour...

  39. Stephen Grim

    Why are they chanting RU486? Its a medication used in the abortion process...

    Alan Heyes

    Stephen Grim Hint: It's also a song title on House of Gold & Bones Pt. 1.

  40. Charlie Dwann

    love this.

  41. Steve Steve

    Awesome!!!!

  42. JayRabid

    can someone tell me what the intro really says

  43. Deysi rocio

    laaaaa csmmmm

  44. black editor

    i love you stone sour

  45. Hayden C

    Always thought he was saying something in french not "come unglued". Anyone know if there is something in French that sounds the same?

  46. Schlauron 666

    Don't no why, but this video reminds me so much of the dark tower graphic novel.

  47. marion apostol

    burde arrecho este betadine :V

  48. Anderson Douglas

    Woww Essa intro é de dar orgasmos

  49. Brian

    Lyrics seem off to me, no like.

  50. Terrance Pemberton

    A Rumor of Skin is one of my favorites...And if you wanna compare songs then compare AROS to DMAF

  51. Terrance Pemberton

    I can hear similarities with Absolute Zero....but come on people! It's much different....badass song... but not on Par with absolute zero and gone sovereign

  52. Ivory Raven

    I love the chorus to this song.

    "OOOOh, I'm not afraid
    I'm giving into grievances again
    You're looking at an absolute zero
    I'm not the devil but I won't be your herooooo"

    The intro to this song is cool too.

    Dunnn dun dun dun AY AYAY AYYY YAYYY AYYY AYYY.

  53. Troy Owen

    a God dammed good meaningfull tale man i feel it and live it,,,

  54. Nightmare 1

    At first I thought it was a the walking dead comic :V

  55. Nerulon Skyven

    this sounds like a lot like Absolute Zero

    David Brockmeier

    Nerulon Skyven it's called a reprise. It's common in story albums

  56. alan menescal

    astonishing! ufuejjfjdugjkskgkfkekfkekgi

  57. Fishy Boy

    tasty bass

  58. Jacob Nissan

    Am I the only one confused by the story line?

    Alan Heyes

    Jacob Nissan Seems like quite a linear storyline, metaphor aside.

  59. noodles

    When your like, the only girl listening to this shit. :D XD

    Beestonator

    Don't worry, it was my mum who introduced me to this xD

    - JohnnyS1cK -

    Yester DAZE Nah, a lot of girls listen to this. Don't feel "unique and special"...

    Beestonator

    There's no need to be condescending about it Johnny, just be fucking nice

    - JohnnyS1cK -

    @Beestonator hmmmm... ok?

  60. lea cabrera

    Absolute zero prototype?

  61. Joshua Roberts

    I don't absolute zero

  62. foresaken to none

    I can relate

  63. Star Pirate

    I for ISIS?

  64. Martijn Van Der Hoeven

    they should make a movie of this concept album...

  65. alessandro silva

    acho que ouvir Absolute Zero em The House Of Gold & Bones

  66. Protoman

    So who are the bearded guys? the good and the bad one? are they supposed to be an allegory for Jesus? And of course the sweet showdown with the BaldEagle man and the demon. I have some theories, but I'd like an opinion on it.

  67. Alex Rojas

    Gone Sovereing, Absolute Zero and Unfinished = The House of Gold and Bones.

    parsa shamshiri

    theres a bit of come whatever may in there too

    ALAN TACITURN 2099

    Other songs that are similar: My name is Allen and Black John

  68. Talha Siddiqui

    almost absolute zero

  69. cobra-gladiator

    Quiet Viking

    cobra-gladiator

    @Quiet Viking i was hearin somethin different. weird.

  70. MrChaipakoimoi

    waiting for eating sex !

  71. matteocubano

    so many dumbasses like 'oh this sounds just like absolute zero'. dude....its a fucking concept album. go listen to quadrophenia....morons.

  72. The Lonely Spartan

    2:09 there's a typo...and now you'll never unsee it.

  73. Luciano Correa

    como que alguem consegue dar dislike??, musica muito boa

    Vinicius Viana

    e porque essas pessoas ñ tem gosto musical

  74. Jacob Bissett

    absolute zero much?

    Andrew Perrin

    It's the PG version.

    gone-sovereign

    House of Gold and Bones was a concept album. The songs are supposed to flow together. That's why this sounds like Absolute Zero.

    Madson Kaique

    It sounds like. Also you can find some links with other songs. The name on the shirt of the blond guy says Zero, probably a link with Absolute Zero. Also the church scene looks exactly like the Do me a favor video from House of gold and bones pt2. You can see 1982 in the grave, in the song '82 corey says "Something happened in 1982".

    gone-sovereign

    Go find the graphic novel House of Gold & Bones. It was written by Corey Taylor himself. That's what both HOGAB albums were based on.

  75. Walrus Zeekoe

    Fuck yeaah

  76. Mateusz W

    The guy in video is Luke Skywalker? :D Pretty good song :)

  77. nick sano

    Wow Absolute zero

  78. Agregát

    That video reminds me the book 1984,am I the only one?

  79. Alex DH

    The intro riff sounds like something Behemoth would do

  80. broken angel

    I read the chapter in Seven Deadly Sins about Waterloo. I found out stuff about Corey I had no idea about. He is real. He is genuine. He is crazy and angry and violent. But he has heart and humor and loyalty. I really respect him for all he has survived and accomplished. He is no angel, but he is no devil either. As he said, he is just a man and says he is no hero. But I think he is wrong about that last bit. I consider him a hero in a time that lacks them. He is a survivor. And in times like these we all need to be heroes and survivors. I wish more people would be brutally honest about themselves and the world. Corey is more than he realizes.

    Humanity is going through the Conflagration even though most do not know it yet. Some will make it, some wont. These are the times that try men's souls- Thomas Paine.

    fristi61

    I agree with you 100% on Corey but you have to realize the HoGaB albums are more like a concept/story album and not really about Corey himself. Well at least I'm assuming you're referring to the lyrics there.

    Serprizebuttsecks

    Agreed! Regardless of what anyone says (himself included) He will always be a hero too many you and myself included!

    Martin Hazle

    I've never read the book but I really want too, is it honestly that good? Gotta love CMFT!

    Nekroneko

    fristi61 while you are right, there are definitely paralleles with to his own life, you will see if you read his books. Damn I love this man.

    Adorable taco

    Is this woke?

  81. Krap Nek

    The intro says "Are you for anal sex", right?

    Jorey Poole

    no they are saying ru486

    Spartacus Spurlock Teh Object Thingy

    +Corey Jordison  I sure am...who's with me! martyr or 11? I am a 7..

    Jorey Poole

    oh yeah!! 
    A delicious intro
    hahahaha!!!!!!!

    Elizabeth Joseph

    Rafal Sabisz I kept thinking the same as the original poster, but ... Knew.... Better? Yeah, I'm sticking with that. Thanks for clearing that up for me, LOL.

  82. Semes Stefan

    what means september 1982

  83. Randy O'Donnell

    This is absolute zero with a few changes... Come on guys i expect more

    eknath iyer

    +Randy O'Donnell It's because it's part 2. You can even see a badge with ZERO on the guy.

    Quiet Viking

    +Randy O'Donnell There are a lot of reoccurring themes and melodies in these two albums which i'm pretty sure were intentional. I think this song is supposed to mirror Gone Sovereign/Absolute Zero.
    Like the scream fading out at the end of this song/album is the exact same scream fading in at the beginning of Gone Sovereign and the first album. They might be implying that it just goes in an infinite loop or something. Also the intro guitar riff in this song is pretty much the same as the Gone Sovereign intro just played backwards.
    There are easter eggs like that all over the two albums, it's one of the reasons why I love them so much.

    christian almli

    +Randy O'Donnell it's supposed to be...Don't you know what a concept record is? The last few seconds of this song is the exact same sound as the very first few seconds of Gone Sovereign as well. It's not because of laziness, it's literally supposed to be that way. When you write an album that has a story in it, people often take a riff and turn it into a musical theme in order to string the album together.

    Robert K

    +Randy O'Donnell It's a concept album, you fuck wit.

  84. Mark

    Ill probably get a lot of hate but does anyone here like Stone Sour more than Slipknot?

    Shah Talpur

    i love both equally cause metal rules.

    Jeffrey Penkoff

    I vastly prefer Stone Sour. Still like Slipknot, but I only got into them after seeing Stone Sour

    Floydfan47

    They are both fairly different and personally between the two I like slipknot more. But holy hell I don't understand how Stone Sour isn't as big, they are so good. As a band they are very diverse but handle each genre so well. Talented musicians and oh yeah Jim Root on guitar and Corey on vocals?? Sign me up homie. I don't understand why some Maggots don't like Stone Sour at all, those are the purists..

    Jenelle Pilger

    Mark not me... Slipknot is Numero Uno to me...

    Republican and a Metalhead

    I prefer Slipknot sorry

  85. Vítor Santili Delavia

    DO CARALHO!

  86. Corin Wood

    MY GOSH!

  87. tkzsfen

    this sounds like a worse version of "do me a favor" - same rhythm. just humming the two songs is a giveaway.

    christian almli

    +tkzsfen you mean Gone Sovereign/absolute zero.

    And wow, how did you deduce that Sherlock? What gave it away, the fact that it's a concept album and that it's intentional?

  88. Spades 6

    did Corey punch rob zombie?

  89. Jay J

    is this the official video??

    Norma Arenaz

    Los amados video

    PuSSy BOI

    @Jay Gunwood you are in stone sour chanell so yeap

  90. THATbeautifulpunk

    I love how it sounds just like Absolute Zero. <3 <3

    vault79 Wanderer

    THATbeautifulpunk damn...it does doesn't it.

    Syph

    Gone Sovereign, RU486, and Absolute Zero mixed together. This is supposed to be instrumentally a rehash of the album i believe.

    Anu Vlad

    Concluding an album (primarily concept albums) in the same (or similar) way it began is a major part of music theory. It's a proper conclusion.

    Same applies to individual songs, by the way.

  91. kaisnyker

    RU486!!

  92. Jesus Lares

    This is just too much like Absolute Zero XD

  93. thetank1123

    good job on the lyrics...very cool

  94. The alertArchitect

    I just love the style of this video. It looks, not to mention sounds, amazing.

  95. MALESTAR EN LA CULTURA

    PARECIERA QUE ESTUVIERA ESCUCHANDO "ABSOLUTE ZERO"   ( se le esta acabando la innovación a stone sour)

    Barbara Jara

    Es un álbum conceptual, por lo tanto las canciones están conectadas, la primera canción y la última del álbum son similares por eso, por que están conectadas

    MALESTAR EN LA CULTURA

    de echo si era esa cancion...de echo las canciones de ese album son todas similares... pero muy buenas canciones

    MALESTAR EN LA CULTURA

    barbara jae, estas en el grupo de La orden de silent hill?

  96. sonichero745

    Sick asf

  97. Scrath

    This sounds so much like Absolute Zero :D That's pretty cool, the rythm is the same, but the story is so very different.

    Chris Zimmerman

    @Raccoon They pretty much used the entire song to make this one

    Scrath

    @Chris Zimmerman It looks like that, yeah :D

    Przemek Przemek

    +Raccoon I think this is a kind of tribute, at least the name of the main hero is "zero" :)

    zmacuable

    +Przemek Przemek it's a two part concept album - so absolute zero was the first one on hous of gold and bones 1, and this one is the last on house of gold and bones II - it's like spanning these two.

    -ההתחלה החדשה B!!S WachKing

    yessssssssss

  98. KOMl3AT

    Similarly music with song absolute zero
