I know what your thinking
I know what your feeling
I know everything in this world that surrounds me
I feel your breathing
I feel your screaming
I feel like I can't go nowhere in this world without believing

My mind plays tricks on me
I can't control it you see
I feel it beating down the pain around me
My mind plays tricks on me
It's unbelievable to see
I'm always testing the shit around me

Let me tell you something
This shit is beaming
It won't leave me alone
My disease is the seed
You think you feel me
You think you know me
Because I'm the hell in your head

My mind plays tricks on me
I can't control it you see
I feel it beating down the pain around me
My mind plays tricks on me
It's unbelievable to see
I'm always testing the shit around me

Are you ready to live
Are you ready to die
All I do is give
Am I wasting my time

Are you ready to live
Are you ready to die
All I do is give
Am I wasting my time

Yes I'm ready to live
Yes I'm ready to die
All I do is give
Am I wasting my time

Am I wasting my time
No I'm not
Am I wasting my time
No I'm not
Am I wasting my time
No I'm not

My mind plays tricks on me
I can't control it you see
I feel it beating down the pain around me
My mind plays tricks on me
It's unbelievable to see
I'm always testing the shit around me

Are you ready to live
Are you ready to die
All I do is give
Am I wasting my time

Are you ready to live
Are you ready to die
All I do is give
Am I wasting my time

All I do is give
All I do is give
All I do is give

    General CommentThe meaning seems so simple on the surface, but then again I'm not sure. I think he's talking about his self-conscious. His mind playing tricks on him trying to get him to see happiness or joy, but there's only pain. I wasn't really diggin' this song at first, but it's growing on me now. I know because I've been singing it to myself in my head. Damn Korn songs seem to do that.

    General CommentOh...I thought he said 'Fucking hate you Korn" (but that just might be me mis-hearing it)
