Stone Sour
StarIconBronze
This song is performed by Stone Sour.
This record is an unseen enemy of the human mind
(You are going to relax)
Use it regularly
Train your mind to follow the suggestions to an unpleasant degree
(You are going to relax)
The mind needs nervous tension
And now we shall begin...
(Listen only to my voice)
One word of caution— RU486?


The pity turns complacent
The bitter comes in a rush
Nobody needs a hopeless romantic
Who never sleeps— and drinks too much

The fear is unrepentant
That means there's nowhere to hide
So draw a breath, and kill my Judas
You'll never know until you come inside

You are defeatist... forsaken
A jewel in the crown of the sun
Never repeated... or taken
I wouldn't change a fucking thing that you've done!

(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
Assume your nemesis
(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
RU486?

Another weak contender
Another pound of the nails
The future lies in perfect condition
You can do it if you're built to fail

I only know solutions
I've never thought of the end
Someone else is closing the casket
Another hungry mouth to defend

You are defeated... forbidden
A name at the top of the list
Never related... or stricken
I wouldn't change a fucking thing about this!

(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
Assume your nemesis
(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
RU486?

(YOU) PROJECTOR (WON'T) SUSPECTOR (FEEL)
The Victor is only who is left insane

(YOU) DETRACTOR (DON'T) SUBTRACTOR (SEE)
The Answer is screaming what you'll never say

We are demeaning... forever
A world that will never exist
Always repeating... or severed
We wouldn't change a fucking thing about this!

(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
Assume your nemesis
(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
RU486?

(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
Assume your nemesis
(Going down alive!)
(Going down alive!)
RU486?

Track notesEdit

  • It is critical to pause and boldly note that this track's title, "RU486", is a direct reference to the experimental/working name of the drug mifepristone— commonly and colloquially referred to as "The Abortion Pill". Making this connection is key to realizing not only the conceptual meaning and the deeper inferences embedded within this particular track, but in those threaded throughout both albums ("House of Gold & Bones, Part 1" and "House of Gold & Bones, Part 2"). The greater concepts to be extracted, when taken from the intended holistic perspective, hinge greatly on this vital (though seemingly innocuous) bit of knowledge. An example can be found in the follow-up track to "RU486"— "My Name Is Allen". The ever-mounting allegory is furthered by many passive references to "RU486"— or more specifically, its implications, as demonstrated in select, poignant lines... (e.g. "There's only room in here for one— and I've decided it's not you.") It will be left to individual interpretation to decide what these implications are.
