Blood is pouring
Sleep is boring
Don't stop running
I'm here counting

The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
Really keep fucking with me
There's nowhere else to go

So I walk but seem to crawl
For I've given in today
Now I run into a wall
'Cause I cannot find my way

You've gotta come with me
(I cannot stand this place)
We've fallen off the wall
(And I'm here in disgrace)
We had a chance to rise
(And now I can't replace)
We're going all the way
(And I'm in deaths' embrace)

Endless worrying
Life is storming
Give up beating
I'll start bleeding

The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
The life, the hurt, the pain, the hate
Really keep fucking with me
There's no where else to go

So I walk but seem to crawl
For I've given in today
Now I've run into a wall
'Cause I cannot find my way

You've gotta come with me
(I cannot stand this place)
We've fallen off the wall
(And I'm here in disgrace)
We had a chance to rise
(And now I can't replace)
We're going all the way
(And I'm in deaths' embrace)

What really do I have to follow?
Nothing makes sense at all
Taking something from nothing
Watch me as I fall

I'm bringing me down
I'm bringing me down
I'm bringing me down
I'm bringing me down

You've gotta come with me
(I cannot stand this place)
We've fallen off the wall
(And I'm here in disgrace)
We had a chance to rise
(And now I can't replace)
We're going all the way
(And I'm in deaths' embrace)

You've gotta come with me
(I cannot stand this place)
We've fallen off the wall
(And I'm here in disgrace)
We had a chance to rise
(And now I can't replace)
We're going all the way
(And I'm in deaths' embrace)

    General CommentIt's just about the hate contained inside a person. It brings you down and tears you apart so matter how strong you are. The new Korn "Untouchables" is definitely the hottest new CD of the summer - if you like it loud, pick it up.

    General CommentNo, not blood or god. It's LIFE IS BORING, SLEEP IS BORING. Also, it's YOU'RE GONNA COME WITH ME... not YOU'VE GOTTA, and WHEN IT KEEPS FUCKING WITH ME, not REALLY KEEPS FUCKING WITH ME.

    This is definitley the coolest KoRn song on Untouchables. It's about being torn down and broken by pain and hate

    General CommentYea... I agree with Oscar on the lyrics and the meaning. Well... then again, I always thought it was "Blood is boring, sleep is boring..." but whatever. Anyway, yea.. the song is about when life is pissing you off, although you try not to, (sleeping and cutting yourself don't work, hence the first verse)you're left with no other option but to Embrace the fucked up, bottled up (haha, song pun there) feelings you have inside.

    General CommentHmmmm... Interesting song. Makes me think of several different things at once. I definitely think that suicide is in there and that the message is kind of "Life sucks for me, I'm hurting and I can't make it stop no matter what I do so I'm just gonna kill it". It describes how you can be running through life and either thinking that you're doing all right so long as you keep trying to fight the crap or thinking that you're getting away from the pain, but you really aren't and next thing you know you're running headlong in to it--a wall of problems and shit that keep you from moving forward. When I think about it, I imagine climbing up the wall in an attempt to get over it, work through the problems. Then I get the feeling that the climber realizes they've made a mistake in trying to take this task on yet can't go back now. It's too late to run off in a new direction and so now you're screwed. Death seems the best way out. But I also somehow imagine that there's someone--a loved one--is involved somehow and the singer wants them to either come with him to the afterlife or void beyond or whatever he believes waits for him or is saying to them that they had their chances to make it good, but didn't take it when they should have. Don't ask. I'm weird. I'm probably wrong on everything.

    General CommentThis is the loudest and heaviest KoRn song on the entire new album. I wish there was more KoRn songs like this. I love the way how Jon says Life Is Boring, Sleep Is Boring, etc. I'm so going to see these guys with Puddle of Mudd this summer

    General CommentI'm sorry if there is any mistakes. If you see any, feel free to Email me @ rottweiler132000@yahoo.com.
    By the way, in case anyone is curious why #10 is placed after the title, the #10 represents the # it is on the album!

    General CommentOne more thing, it is supposed to be, 'The lies, the hurt, the pain, the hate, really can't fuck with me, there's nowhere else to go.'
