"Set It Off" as written by and Wayne R. (static-x)/campos Wells....
Wait every hour of every day
Played light, played hard
Had to go my way
I feel like death wearing a disguise
Can't catch my breath
From all this noise

I want
I'm fucking bored
Give me a new found sensation
Take it
Take all the pills
I'll try anything to get me off
Come on
Kicked in the ass
Why do you tell me I can't?
Fake it
I can't go on
Give me anything to set it off

I bite your tongue
Watch with keen eyes
I found the gun
Nervous excitement
Go on and toush it
You just might like
I sip your poison one last time

My confidence is all that's left
Under this veil I count the minutes
I'm growing weaker
Search for a glimmer
Pulsating sounds come blaring out
You may be right
My mind is gone
I'll try anything to set this off

Set it off
Anything to set it off

    General CommentToolslip25 I don’t see how you can say that they sound like Korn ripoffs. In my opinion, I don't think these two bands really compare. For example, they are two different genres of metal. Korn's sound is always changing. I think that Static-X has had a pretty solid sound ever since they first came out. Even the way their songs are composed lyrically are different. You're entitled to your opinion, I just think you should rethink what you posted and elaborate a little more what you meant.

    General CommentHeh, when I was just listening to it I couldn't help but think it sounded like a song about an old guy trying to have sex. I almost shat myself.

    General CommentIt does kinda sound like Korn... but gone industrial as opposed to metal. as for this song in particular, I think its about every day life, and how bored he is of the routine, and tries new shit just for thrills and is doing absolutely anything.

    at least thats what I thought of this song first time I heard it, and thats how I felt at the time.
