Everyone is looking at me
I can't get out of bed
There is evil in my head
Everyone just let me be
Because when I hit the stage
It is gone and I am free

Goddam you say you'll get up for me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
You won't beg for me, beg for me, beg for me

Goddam you say you'll get up with me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
You won't beg for me, be there for me, beg for me

Tell me, how could this fade?
I am going in shame
And I could not have my pain
Everyone please let me be
'Cause we're on stage
And it's gone and I am free

Goddam you say you'll get up with me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
You won't beg for me, beg for me, beg for me

Goddam you say you'll get up with me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
You won't beg for me, be there for me, beg for me

I feel the shame
I'm not insane
The things I feel now
Arent the same
Who gives a fuck,
if my life sucks?
I just know one day
I won't give up

Everyone just let me be

Goddam you say you'll get up with me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
ou won't beg for me, beg for me, beg for me

Goddam you say you'll get up with me
You're the crowd, come on give it back to me
You won't beg for me, be there for me, beg for me
Be there, for me

    General CommentNo I actually have an emotional ride as I watch them live. I understand what he went through. I realize that he is a person with emotions just like all of us. I have a great deal of respect for him.

    General Comment"Beg For Me" is more of an angry thing because the whole thing for "Beg For Me" is the crowd. The only time I was good on tour was when I walked up onstage and that's what the song is about. Feeling wanted is something one thing I've always needed. I was shuffled around so much when I was a kid...Being up onstage was the only point was the only time when my anxiety would go away for an hour. - Jonathan Davis

    General CommentAnniemack666... shut up. That line has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with fucking sex. It's a song about how Jonathan has a fucked up life, but when he's on stage, it all goes away. Not one of my favorites off of Issues, but it's good.

    General Commenti know what it means but discovering the "true" meaning sucks ass cuz it takes away from letting you relate it to you. but this song contains one of the best lines ever"who gives a fuck, if my life sucks"

    General CommentDavid kills it on the drums in this song.. one of my all time favorites, only because I think the chorus is amazing. It's just one of those songs that you can jam to no matter what

    General CommentI have never actually heard this song, but I can tell from reading the lyrics that I like it. It's about how Jon's got all this shit inside that he has to deal with and live with the rest of his life, but when he walks out on to the stage and looks down to see the people in the crowd rockin' it and having a wicked awesome time it makes him feel so good because he has the power to give those people a good time. He forgets his troubles for the time being and gives his all to rockin' his audience and making sure they have a bad ass time.

    Song MeaningJon himself said it's about how he becomes this egotistical dude who forgets his fucked up life when he's on stage. The arrogance shown in the title of the song.

    How the hell do you get sex from this?
