Don't wanna be sly and defile you
Desecrate my mind and rely on you
I just wanna break this crown
But it's hard when I'm so run down

And you're so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal!
Got to bring myself back from the dead!

Sometimes, I hate, the life, I made
Everything's wrong every time
Pushing on I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Holding on I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

Don't wanna be rude but I have to
Nothing's good about the hell you put me through
I just need to look around
See that life that has come unbound

And you're so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal
Got to bring myself back from the dead

Sometimes, I hate, the life I made
Everything's wrong every time
Pushing on I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Sometimes, I hate, the life I made
Everything's wrong every time
Pushing on I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Is haunting me taking its sweet time

Holding on I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

Holding on I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life to the end of my days

    General Comment"It's about me watching people who are so narcissistic destroy themselves. They basically eat themselves alive because of their narcissism. That's the gist of the story."-Jonathan Davis

    My InterpretationThe term "Narcissistic cannibal" is pretty self-explanatory. It's about narcissistic people that behave so selfishly that, not only do they consume others, but they end up consuming themselves in the end. I've known people like this.

    I think the rest of the song is from the perspective of the victim of a narcissistic cannibal, but I could be wrong. I think it has to do with fighting society and its narcissistic cannibals.

    Sometimes I hate the life I made
    Everything's wrong every time

    Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, and no matter what decisions we make, everything turns out wrong. The narcissistic cannibal will always try to destroy others. We inadvertently accommodate them, and in the end we hate our own lives.

    Pushing on I can't escape
    Everything that comes my way

    No matter how hard we try, people will always try to hurt us and destroy our dreams. It doesn't matter what decisions you make, you can't avoid being hurt or damaged by others.

    That's the way the song speaks to me, anyhow. It's one of my favorites, and it speaks volumes about what I am currently experiencing in my own life.

    General Commenti love korn's music, but this song sucks ( in my opinion) i know they were trying something new w/ skrillex, but i dont think it worked. they need to make music like they did in the 90's and early 2000's, tht stuff was great

    Song MeaningSpecifically, I think it's about a celebrity whose became so caught up in themselves and their success they end up eating themselves in their own narcissism until they loose what little respect they still had.
