Well I wish there was someone
Well I wish there was someone
To love me

When I used to be someone
And I knew there was someone
That loved me

As I sit here frozen alone
Even ghosts get tired and go home
As they crawl back under the stones

And I wish there was something
Please tell me there's something better
And I wish there was something more than this
Saturated loneliness

And I wish I could feel it
And I wish I could steal it
Abduct it, corrupt it, but I never can
it's just saturated loneliness

Does the silence get lonely?
Does the silence get lonely?
Who knows?
I've been hearing it tell me
I've been hearing it tell me
Go home

Cause the freaks are playing tonight
They packed up and turned out the lights

And I wish there was something
Please tell me there's something better
And I wish there was something more than this
Saturated loneliness

And I wish I could feel it
And I wish I could steal it
Abduct it, corrupt it, but I never can
It's just saturated loneliness

And the bath waters cold
And this life's getting old

And I wish I could feel it
And I wish I could feel it
And I wish I could steal it
Abduct it, corrupt it
And I wish I could feel it
And I wish I could steal it
And I wish I could feel it
Abduct it, corrupt it
But I never can
I never can
Never Can
Never Can
Never Can

    General CommentPlease, you're not impressing anyone by jumping on the anti-Korn bandwagon. See You On the Other Side sucked before you ever heard it.

    This song is excellent and is something that we've never heard from Korn before. It's sad and beautiful at the same time. Jon said it was about when he gets lonely on the road and it feels like there is nothing around him but silence.

    General CommentI Must agree with you all 'cept MrTragedy....with a name like that you think he'd appreciate the slower sadder songs....anyways I also don't know why The Shape said See You On The Otherside sucked :P I mean yeah its different, but its still a sweet album, they went for something different and put out some of KoRns worst songs like Politics but they also put out some really amazing ones like this one.

    General CommentI agree with The Shape. This is easily my favorite song by Korn, this and Shoots and Ladders. It's very dark, kind of ambient, different than what they've put out before. This entire album is, it's not quite the same Korn we're used to, it's more industrial, but it's awesome.

    General CommentThis song kicks that ass. I think the lack of instruments for it though were to show more vulnerability and show how personal the song was to him, that and the fact of how different theyre pushing to be and brilliantly experimenting with different sounds and options available these days.

    General Commenti hate the kids that say that new korn sucks... if you like a band that stays the same listen to the beatles or some short haired neck tie son of a bitches, Change is the best thing that can happen in music, i would honestly have this song at some points in my life other than Twist if you understand. This song is one of my fav off See you on the other side.

    dont get me wrong their S/T album was the best album to date cause i cant even listen to the last song its filled with so much emotion.

    Song MeaningFor me,this song means a lot to me as well as any other korn song and clearly this is about loneliness.

    General Commentno he means that mrtradegy has never even heard the album before making stupid comments about the band members.....but umm mrtragedy is a loser so thats probaly the best explanation for him even going to the reviews of the music that he dosnt like.
