Whatcha gonna do
Whatcha gonna feel
When suddenly I slip away?

Almost am a ghost
Of who I used to be
Yesterday.

How you gonna touch
And how will you collect
The beauty when it turns to dust?

Everything we make
The cells we generate
Of both of us..

Please be aware that I am you!
Nothing could be more certain
This ain't the time the place for us
To understand this life!

Hold you in my arms
Hold you in my gaze
Singing with my dying breath

Underneath this earth
A resurrected soul
And nothing else

Sorry for this space
If I could fill a void
An ocean wouldn't hold my love

And everything I have
And all I ever was
Is not enough

Please be aware that I am you!
Nothing could be more certain
This ain't the time the place for us
To understand this life!

(I will protect you)

Please be aware that I am you!
Nothing could be more certain
This ain't the time the place for us
To understand this life!

This ain't the time! This ain't the place!
This ain't the time! This ain't the place!
This ain't the time! This ain't the place!

I will protect you...

    General CommentThis song seems to be directed more to his kids and how close he was to dying. He keeps saying
    "Please be aware that I am you!"

    He starts the song off asking what their gonna do if hes gone? He answers by saying that he loves them and that they are him.

    General CommentA song JD leaked from the new album. It sounds like it's from Jonathan to his wife Deven, about his disease from last summer and how close he came to death. It seems like it made him realize some things...

    General Commentcool song, somehow resembles "hollow life" to me...
    the outro rocks; the mixed-up bagpipes are cool, and Jordison's drumming is fucking great - as always.

    Well, if the next album is going to be like this, I'm happy that Korn stays with their unique style.

    About the lyrics... another love song from Jon. A song about caring for your loved one... and that you can never care TOO much. :)

    "Sorry for this space
    If I could fill a void
    An ocean wouldn't hold my love"
    ...explains it all.

    General CommentThe song is to JD's kids about how he'll die someday and that so will they. Korn wants to leave an ideal impression on their children to live up to when their parents are gone.

    General CommentI think it's to Deven and the kids. "The cells we generate" is like he's talking to Deven about the two sons they've made together and the "Please be aware that I am you" is like him talking to his three kids about how they all share the same cells, he is them and they are him in a way. The "Sorry for this space" part could be to all of them because he loves them all and he will protect all of them. It's really a beautiful song. Makes me wanna cry.

    General CommentIn the DVD JD says it's to his boys. He says he wants them to know that someday he's going to die and won't be able to protect them anymore and that someday the'll die too but that that is part of life.
    I really like this it's one of my favourites off Untitled... the drums are amazing Terry Bozzio and his gigantic drumset totally kick ass!!! I really love the two voices too (like JD's normal singing voice and one talking the lyrics twisted by some machine) It's sounds awesome! In the DVD you can see I'm record the machine-altered voice it's reaaly funny lol

    General Commenti hears it was about global warming, but come to think of it psychotic penguin makes sense. But i dont think its aimed at his wife.. Or is it global warming......?

    General CommentcoldFlame - Actually, that's Bozzio's drumming. Joey just joined them last week.

    ThePot - In an interview, Jon said there is a song on the album called "Evolutionary Stop" about what you're talking about. Maybe that's what you're thinking of.

    General CommentPsychotic Penguin - lol, but the song was recorded just a couple of days ago... after Joey joined.

    ThePot - no, really, what line in this song could possibly hint at global warming? :-D

    and yes, "Evolutionary Stop"'s suposed to be about global warming; now all they need is a song about GWB and one about Iraq to make a perfect album for the whole family. )))

    Anyways, this song roxx =)
