Come on, step inside, and you'll realize.
Tell me what you need, tell me what to be.
What's your vision? You'll see, what do you expect of me?
I can't live that lie.

Hey, a sick mom
With a fucked dad,
Dealing with your life,
Dead bodies everywhere.

You!
Really want me to be a good son.
Why'd you make me feel like no one?

Let me strip the plain, let me not give in.
Free me of your life, inside my heart dies.
Your dreams never achieved, don't lay that shit on me.
Let me live my life.

Hey, a sick mom
With a fucked dad,
Dealing with your life,
Dead bodies everywhere.

You!
Really want me to be a good son.
Why'd you make me feel like no one?

You want me to be, something I can never ever be!

Hey, a sick mom
With a fucked dad,
Dealing with your life,
Dead bodies everywhere.

You!
Really want me to be a good son.
Why'd you make me feel like no one?

Dead bodies everywhere!

    General CommentTo me the song is about teenage discipline, everyone who follows their parents entirely and wont do anything mimick a dead body.

    When I heard this song I thought how much I can relate to it.

    I thought "I can't lose it... lie. " was "I can't live that lie" and was referring to how discipline is holding in your emotions and stopping you from doing what you want to, which is in a way a lie.

    Pretty much every lyric hear fits.

    General CommentHmm, I always thought the lyrics were

    "Hey, I sing my words,
    I'm fucked at dealing,
    with your life."

    instead of "I've seen a mom with...".

    Guess not then.

    General CommentI dont think its really about "dead bodies". It's about everyone expecting so much of him and him not being able to live up to their expectations and probably has to do with him being a singer. "you really want me to be a good son, why u make me feel like no one" they want him to be a good son but they make him feel like shit so why bother. and they want him to be something he can't ever be. then he say's... "let me live my life" its just he wants them to leave him the fuck alone becuz he can't live up to their expectations.

    General CommentI agree with PepsiCan the whole song is summed up by the following lyrics "You!
    Really want me to be a good son. Why?
    You make me feel like no one.

    You want me to be, something I can never ever be!"

    Its about people putting you under pressure and you just can't live up to their expectations.

    General CommentI heard it was a song about his parents not wanting him to go into the music buisness. His dad was in it and told Jon how terrible it was. For more KoRn song meanings, check out adidas-korn.com/

    General Commentyes, i heard it was about how his parents and stuff wanted him to be a doctor (or something related) and he wanted to be something else (most likely a musician). Before he became a musician he worked at a morgue...therefor Dead Bodies Everywhere

    General Commentyall are stating the obvious, its not that hard to figure out that its not really about dead bodies, good observation, either way its a kick ass song

    General CommentI know John Davis used to work in a morgue before he went to the music business. Perhaps this tied into the song?
