Corey unveils his sensitive side with his touching lyrics. "Hesitate" is definitely a catchy power ballad, very much in "Bother" and "Through Glass". Taylor's yearning voice flies over a steadily building mid-tempo track that blends electric and acoustic guitars over a surprisingly spare rhythm section.
When the full band inevitably kicks in, the song stays much more restrained than you might expect, which allows for greater focus on the heartbreak described in the lyrics:
"Because I see you / But I can't feel you anymore / So go away / I need you but I can't need you anymore / You hesitate / Hesitate."
The music video for the song "Hesitate," off the band’s 3rd full length Audio Secrecy. Frontman Corey Taylor offers the following explanation behind the concept of the song:
"Hesitate" is "about letting go of something that you want with all your heart that you know is just gonna do nothing but damage to you," he continues. "And it takes a special kind of heart and a special kind of courage to do that."
