Spinning inside, rotting away.
Something inside of me's
been taken away.
Feeling my heart breaking in vain.
It won't get better now,
WHEN WILL THIS END?

I can't seem to get away.
I feel I'm here so you can play
with my head.
There's nothing I can say.
I keep feeling like I'm to blame.
When will this end?

Hopeless inside, alone as I wait.
Brewing inside of me
enduring this hate.
Feeling my heart breaking in vain.
It won't get better now,
WHEN WILL THIS END?

I can't seem to get away.
I feel I'm here so you can play
with my head.
There's nothing I can say.
I keep feeling like I'm to blame.
When will this end?

The stress is rising and I
can't seem to get away from you.
You're always trying and the lying always shines right through.
My God I hate this,
always take shit.
Can I let this go on?
Why can't I break this?
I just take this
as it goes on and on.

END!
WHEN WILL THIS END? {x7}

I can't seem to get away.
I feel I'm here so you can play
with my head.
There's nothing I can say.
I keep feeling like I'm to blame.
When will this end?

One

I can't remember anything.
Can't tell if this is true or dream.
Deep down inside I feel to scream.
This terrible silence stops me.
Now that the war is through with me,
I'm waking up I cannot see
that there's not much left in me.
Nothing is real but pain now.

Hold my breath as I wish for death.
Oh please, God wake me.

Back in the womb it's much too real.
In pumps life that I must feel.
But can't look foreward to reveal.
Look to the time when I live.
Fed through the tube that sticks in me
just like a wartime novelty.
Tied to machines that make me be.
Cut this life out from me.

Hold my breath as I wish for death.
Oh please, God wake me.

Now the world is gone, I'm just one.
Oh God, help me.
Hold my breath as I wish for death.
Oh please, God wake me.

Darkness imprisoning me.
All that I see, absolute horror.
I cannot live, I cannot die.
Trapped in myself,
body my holding cell.

Land mine has taken my sight,
taken my speech, taken my hearing,
taken my arms, taken my legs,
taken my soul, left me with life in hell!

    General CommentHold my breath as I wish for death.

    Uh it should be "Oh Please, God help me." Don't you people ever listen to Metallica come on and you call yourselves Korn fans.

    General CommentWhen Will This End is about being used and wondering to yourself when will it end. One was orginally done by Metallica (That goes into the 'No Shit' catigory)

    General CommentI think it was an excellent cover of One and also I think it was very repectful that they didn't even attempt the solo. I have faith in Korn but I don't believe they could ever pull that off.

    General Comment"When will this end" is about break up or unlucky relationship , ... spinning inside , rotting away , .. we all feel that shit when our g/fs give us some lame ass reason just to walk away , and then you try to figure out what da hell you did wrong , or maybe you did fuck something up and still love your woman but it's too late, ...... something inside of me's been taken away , the heart's breaking in vain and obviously it's not gonna get better tomorrow ..
    "i cant seem to get away , i feel i'm here so you can play with my head" , .... means image of her face is still present in his mind , maybe some other familiar places that remind him of good time spent together.
    brewing inside , bearing this hate means eventually you start to hate yourself because you feel like it's always your fault .... i keep feeling like i'm to blame ...... , that normally happens when you're being dumped.... eventually hating all women...
    "One" remains one of Metallica's best masterpieces...

    General CommentWhen Will This End is almost like facing a heartbreak from a relationship with someone, then them using you with promises of more, so you keep coming back. Seen it happen to a million of my friends.

    The song One is actually based on a book called "Johnny Got His Gun." It's about a guy that steps on a land mine during the war and loses his arms, legs and his face, but they keep him alive and he's trying to communicate with the outside world and he wants to die but he's attached to all of these machines that are keeping him alive. It's a pretty fucked up book. Probably one of the only books I've ever read all the way through.

    General CommentThis song is about getting a bad fuck in a porn movie you cock-juggling assclowns. Like getting analled by 2000-pound hungry she-male.
