Slipknot singer Corey Taylor has revealed his inspiration behind "The Dying Song (Time To Sing)" -- and it's no more uplifting than the song itself.
"To me, it just seems like it's all the outrage and none of the punishment," Taylor says. "For the last few years, it's been very trendy to be offended and outraged by everything, and yet nothing happens — especially in my country, which is just f***ing ridiculous. It's almost like the tables have turned, and the more angry people get, the more the people who they're mad at just double down."
I'm confused. So you're saying just because someone is offended by me I should be punished? Because I can't have an opinion myself? I shouldn't be able to have an opinion on a social or civil matter unless it DOESN'T offended the opposing view? People don't have to like everyone. People don't have to like your life choices. It's called "your" life so live it the way you want. HOWEVER, words can have consequences depending on context and threats. That being said you're never going to rid the world of hate. As long as there is good, there is bad. Gone are the days of you being you and enjoying life. Now it's everyone has to except "your choices" and that's just not how this world works. If it did every country would get along and there would be peace and harmony.
If we could just get back to minding our own business and trying to be better for each other, what a better place this COULD be.
