You and me
We have no faces
Soon our lives they’ll be erased
Do you think they will remember?
Or will we just be replaced
Oh I wish that I could see
How I wish that I could fly
All the things that hang above me
To a place where I can cry

So why can it be?
No one hears because
Echoes back at me
No one's there
To all these meaningless feelings
I can't deal with in my life
To all these greedy people
Trying to feed on what is mine
You’ve got to feel your hunger
And stop fucking with my mind
I know it's time to leave these places far behind

You and me
We have no faces
They don’t see us anymore
Without love as they had promised
And no faith for what’s in store
Oh I wish that I could see
How I wish that I could fly
All the things that hang above me
To a place where I can cry

So why can it be?
No one hears because
Echoes back at me
No one's there
To all these meaningless feelings
I can't deal with in my life
To all these greedy people
Trying to feed on what is mine
You’ve got to feel your hunger
And stop fucking with my mind
I know it's time to leave these places far behind

Where are all these feelings hiding?
Dancing in and out my mind
Burning up all that I long for
Feeding me till my decline
Where are you?
My soul is bleeding
I am searching
Am I blind?
All alone and bound forever
Trapped inside me all the time

To all these meaningless feelings
I can't deal with in my life
To all these greedy people
Trying to feed on what is mine
You’ve got to feel your hunger
And stop fucking with my mind
I know it's time to leave these places far behind

    General CommentLike a lot of the songs on the album, the song is about dealing with hardships and Jon wanting to get away from them. As MorningStar said, there's a good chance this song refers to suicide as the escape, as implied in the "How I wish that I could fly / All the things that hang above me / To a place where I can cry", with that place he's talking about being heaven.

    General CommentI'll never know how people get the names of songs wrong. How can any true KoRn fan manage such a stupid mistake? lol.

    Loved em since i could even begin to realise what music was, Thanks to my dad. 14 years worth of KoRn and i still feel they are the best band on the planet.
