Maybe I'm insane
Walking on a wire
Maybe I'm the same
Nothing to take me higher
Tell me where to start
Think I'm at the end
Right now feeling pain
Make it go away

Maybe I'm to blame
Maybe I'm a liar
Maybe we're the same
Nothing can start the fire
I can't feel my heart
But I feel the shame
Nothing left to say
Soon I'll fade away

These places all I ever think about is lost in time
These faces haunting me
I'm looking back and they are mine

I'm hiding from the things they say
Doing time and lead astray
Thinking back to times of yesterday
I could fly

I'm trying to find a better way
But I'm trapped
Can't get away
All I think is about yesterday
I could fly

Maybe I'm insane
Walking on a wire
Maybe I'm the same
Nothing to take me higher
I can't feel my heart
But I feel the shame
Nothing left to say
Soon I'll fade away

These places all I ever think about is lost in time
These faces haunting me
I'm looking back and they are mine

I'm hiding from the things they say
Doing time and lead astray
Thinking back to times of yesterday
I could fly

I'm trying to find a better way
But I'm trapped
Can't get away
All I think is about yesterday
I could fly

    General CommentThe lyrics are about how Jon's life is complete crap now, and how he constantly remembers how he was doing so well and it all of a sudden came crashing down.

    General Commentthis song is I'm hiding. And what's this jon's life used to be good but now it sucks? Don't get me wrong when I say this but I love korn. I like all their music and everything. But Jon's a pussy. I think he's depressed now because he's got no real reason to be depressed anymore. He's sang every last bit of anger he could possibly feel in his entire life. Back in the day he was singing about how shitty his life was/is cause he couldn't get a woman and was being raped or whatever. Now he has all this anger that's needing to be let lose? after 10 years of singing about your hate, don't you think the hate is gone? that's the only thing I had against untouchables. He's still singing about the same old hate he began with. He's not really getting to any point with his lyrics anymore. I could imagine he'd pick a fight with a complete stranger just so he could get pissed off and have a "logical" reason to make a song about how angry he is with his life. if he's not got anything good going on in his life then why live. but that's just me.

    General CommentUh, maybe he's just singing for the sake of his listeners that need things to relate to....
