Got to face your fear
lying on the floor
Step into nothing, what the hell am I here for?
So come on and play
Stab me in my heart
So long this time was wasted ripping me apart

We are the hurt inside your head
Lost in the void of what is dead
Constantly twisting things I said
Happiness is boring, need pain instead

It's starting over, starting over
Can't stand it's over, God is gonna take me out
My time is over, this time is over
Why is this over? God is gonna take me out

(God is gonna take me out)

Crawling on the floor
All around this space
Talking to myself
What is this thing I've got to face?
Walking through a door
Has it been a waste?
Going on and on thinking I could find my place

We are the hurt inside your head
Lost in the void of what is dead
Constantly twisting things I said
Happiness is boring, need pain instead

It's starting over, starting over
Can't stand it's over, God is gonna take me out
My time is over, this time is over
Why is this over? God is gonna take me out

God is gonna take me out (God is gonna take me out)
God is gonna take me out

You can't see
I'm torn away from you and everything that's
close to me
I cannot face the truth, it's nothing that
I believe
Just run away from me and thank me when you're
free from me
Come take me

Come take me
Come take me
Come take me
Come take me

Come take me (We are the hurt inside your head)
(Lost in the void of what is dead)
Come take me (Constantly twisting things I said)
(Happiness is boring, need pain instead)
Come take me (We are the hurt inside your head)
(Lost in the void of what is dead)
Come take me (Constantly twisting things I said)
(Happiness is boring, need pain instead)

    General CommentI believe the correct line is:
    "Lost in the VOID of what is dead"?
    But then again, my brain could be playing tricks.

    General CommentThe Shape is correct.

    "Another intensely personal track is “Starting Over,” which was inspired by Davis’ near-death experience with ITP, a blood disease that struck the frontman while on tour in Europe."

    I thought it was about suicide too.

    General CommentThis album is quite different from what I can tell so far. I'm listening to it for the first time right now and am only on the fifth track, but it's very different in my opinion from all they've done before. I don't think "Starting Over" is therefore about suicide like a lot of fans are used to. I think it's about JD's disease, part of the time he's freaking out because he thinks he's dying and part of the time he's getting a second chance at life. It's not over yet.
    Is it just me or does this new stuff sound vaguely like the music that JD did for Queen of The Damned? Kinda darkly mystical or something?

    General Commentthis song is about Jonathan's rare blood disease.
    "We are the hurt inside your head
    lost in the void of what is dead
    constantly twisting things i said
    happiness is boring (need or me) pain instead"
    are the lyrics. This song kicks ass

    General Commenti think it might be bout suicide because of all the lying on the ground type stuff....i think it's about someone who shot himself but didn't manage to kill and is having a dream about starting over instead of killing himself,and realizes he spent too much time "ripping himself apart".then i think he actually dies and gets to the doors of heaven ("walking through a door") and wondering if he's going to hell and his whole lifes been a waste and he's "going on and on thinking he can find his place".after that i get confused but i think God forgives him and "takes him out" of his misery and i think the last parts might be his suicide note or somethin...


    sorry if i got it wrong,this is 1 of the first songs i tried to find the meaning of

    General CommentFirst of, fuck FR4NCH1SE. This album is superb.

    And for the song: After reading the lyrics (and I presume my interpretation will be quite different from what others think), but I think it's starting the album out sort of by saying that KoRn has been through so much shit with Head leaving and even further back with parents fighting against them and trying to steer their kids away from Korn's message.

    "We are the hurt inside your head" Possibly them speaking to the parents of the past. They aren't letting up on their message to the world and their fans with this album. They are simply "Starting Over".
