There you are alone
With no hope of ever having something to be proud of
Something earned without begging
Yes, I know you're a person, a person close to me
Who do you think you are? What more do you want from me?!
Ball Tongue!
-You got the dykes off, I think they'll mind me
Ball Tongue!
-The rag I'm on, we are justified
Ball Tongue!
-Congrats you just fucked up my make-up and shit
Ball Tongue!
-What have you done for me?!

Why are you at home buried in your own self pity?
Why do you insist on living the life clean out of me?
Yes, I know you're the person, the person that took time with me
Does it give you the right to expect your life revolves around me?!
Ball Tongue!
-You have come to take from your buddy
Ball Tongue!
-You have never been so funky
Ball Tongue!
-The higgle got sick of me
Ball Tongue!
-Ahh, the dick is fine for the day
Ball Tongue!
-Your brother took it from me
Ball Tongue!
-Unidetified enemy
Ball Tongue!
Ball Tongue!
-Come fucking back to save us and gave up
Ball Tongue!
-They've come to deliver me
ou were my brother, Where does our friendship end? [x3]
You were my brother, I'm not going to give in

How can you fuck'n doubt me, but not again [repeated]

Ball Tongue!
-They've driven right by my friends
Ball Tongue!
-They've taken the take above me
Ball Tongue!
-You're a psycho monkey
Ball Tongue!
-They've come to enslave me
Ball Tongue!
-They've jacken themselves onto me
Ball Tongue!
-Your fuck'n gangster signs
Ball Tongue!
-They've come not to save them, but they take
Ball Tongue!
-Fuck'n death to fuck'n me

You're psychopaths [repeated]
Ball Tongue!
-Berome's dead at the technodrome
Ball Tongue!
-You're right, he's dead, tear gas dropped, but who was it?
Ball Tongue!
-It dosen't of the rhythm of the damn monger
Ball Tongue!
-Can I die?! Can I die?!
Ball Tongue!
-And then, the man kept kick'n me
Ball Tongue!
-He gets him on, they're cool
Ball Tongue!
-He wasn't dead, and then they knocked him on the head
Ball Tongue!
-No more, he's rid of you. You're a Dyke!

    General Commentit's actually about a guy Korn had to work with on a t-shirt design. He either had a pierced toungue or a wart or something and he treated the band like shit.

    General Commentif anyone tries to say that jon is actually saying something in this song when ball tongue is being screamed they need to be put down. Numerous websites as well as some old interviews on Much Music have confirmed from jonathan himself that he isn't saying anything. IT'S GIBBERISH!!!!!
    But, it's creative nontheless.

    General CommentI like this song. It's about a guy they had to work with on a T-shirt who had a pierced tongue, and he was a total prick to them. And I don't believe that he's saying only gibberish in between the 'Ball tongues', the translation from lordElfstone is right. I've seen videos of this song live, and he is saying something between the 'Ball tongues' other than gibberish. This is a funny song. Me like, me like.

    BALL TONGUE!!

    General CommentJon has stated a million times that the lyrics in the chorus are just his normal nonsensical scat. You're hearing shit if you think otherwise.
