Hear what I say
I’m gonna get out of my mind
Where I’m going to be on your way
Your spirit is calling after
Will I disappear?
Everything dies, nothing to worry about
Everything goes on, goes on, goes on

I just don’t know why everything has to go away
I just don’t know why everything has to fade away
I cannot escape
There’s nothing more I can do
I just don’t know why do I need you?

See what I see
I’m going to get out of my mind
What am I going to… no more, no more
I’m ready to go serene to find
There’s nothing to hold to reach you
Everything dies, nothing to worry about
Everything goes on, goes on, goes on

I just don’t know why everything has to go away
I just don’t know why everything has to fade away
I cannot escape
There’s nothing more I can do
I just don’t know why do I need you?

I just don’t know why everything has to go away
I just don’t know why everything has to fade away
I cannot escape
There’s nothing more I can do
I just don’t know why do I need you?

I just don’t know why everything has to go away
I just don’t know why everything has to fade away
I cannot escape
There’s nothing more I can do
I just don’t know why do I need you?

    General CommentI LOVE THIS SONG...I think it's about how death takes away what we love...yet no matter how hard we hold on everything else seems to keep going without those we cared for

    General CommentI do agree, there is a topic of death that is presented in this song. But I think it's in a more metaphorical sense, rather than simply being someone dying. Kinda like how in Tarot, the Death card is symbolic of approaching change.

    To me, this song is very angry, very bitter-sounding. The singer is in a bad relationship of some kind, whether romantic, familial, or friendship, and she's finally had it. She isn't going to keep quiet anymore, she won't just sit there and take whatever abuse is thrown at her. She's mad as hell, and she isn't going to take it anymore! The second part is the affirmation that things are always changing, and yet life continues the way it always has.

    I find the chorus interesting. I think the first two lines are her lamenting the changes that are occuring in her life, wondering why everything that was familiar to her has to change the way it is. The third line reminds me of something an abuser might say to their victim - "You can't escape, you can't fight back. I have all the power, you have nothing". And the fourth line is a response to the third, with her basically telling this person to eff the hell off, that she doesn't need them in her life anymore.

    Very bitter-sounding lyrics at times, but an awesome song!

    These songs (not all of them, obviously) off Karmacode have a Korn sound to them, I think. Like the bass and the riffs, for example.

    General CommentI agree with agelicsabyne, and for me it sounds awesome all the time. And yes, the whole Karmacode sounds a little like Korn, but it's still Lacuna Coil, and I think if you've heard their previous work you should recognize their style easily.

    General CommentKorn would certainly sound better if they had a more... um... melodic supplement to their vocals. I definitely hear the Korn sound.

    General CommentI'm a big fan of everything Lacuna Coil had done before this album, but I think that they went a little overboard with the whole 'modern American' sound. The album is still growing on me (even though I bought it over a year ago), but I don't think it'll ever match their previous works.

    General Commentthat Korn sound is the bass. in this album Marco Zelati (sp?) used a different bass rig (his live equipment) which gives it that sound. i actually happen to like the heavier sound, where the bass shakes the room.
