Pick me up
Been bleeding too long
Right here, right now
I'll stop it somehow

I will make it go away
Can't be here no more
Seems this is the only way
I will soon be gone
These feelings will be gone
These feelings will be gone

Now I see the times they change
Leaving doesn't seem so strange
I am hoping I can find
Where to leave my hurt behind
All the shit I seem to take
All alone I seem to break
I have lived the best I can
Does this make me not a man?

Shut me off
I'm ready
Heart stops
I stand alone
Can't be my own

I will make it go away
Can't be here no more
Seems this is the only way
I will soon be gone
These feelings will be gone
These feelings will be gone

Now I see the times they change
Leaving doesn't seem so strange
I am hoping I can find
Where to leave my hurt behind
All the shit I seem to take
All alone I seem to break
I have lived the best I can
Does this make me not a man?

Am I going to leave this place?
What is it I'm running from?
Is there nothing more to come?
(Am I gonna leave this place?)
Is it always black in space?
Am I going take its place?
Am I going to win this race?
(Am I going to leave this race?)
I guess God's up in this place?
What is it that I've become?
Is there something more to come?
(More to come)

Now I see the times they change
Leaving doesn't seem so strange
I am hoping I can find
Where to leave my hurt behind
All the shit I seem to take
All alone I seem to break
I have lived the best I can
Does this make me not a man?

    General Commentthis is a great song... IMO, it's a LOT better than a lot of KoRn songs, no matter how different it sounds...

    General CommentI really love this song, it's so different than everything korn has ever made. With here to stay, it is surely the best song of the album

    General CommentWord to dema at the top, he hit the point dead on. Evem though hes a little lost on the name, hes right about everything else. A lot of us have contemplated suicide, myself included, but it can never be worth it.

    General CommentAll you are so fucking right this and Hallow Life are my favorites of the cd. John has alot of deep songs but i truly think he made these songs deeper than ever.

    General Commentthe chorus"Now I see the times, they change
    Leaving us, it seems so strange
    I am hoping I can find
    Where to leave my hurt behind
    All the shit I seem to take
    All alone, I seem to break
    I have lived the best I can
    Does this make me not a man? " means alot-at least to me-it means like everything around u is changing,and u dont no where to begin,and no1 is there to help u and u feel lilke nothing-so ur kinda wondering whether or not ur somebody,just my opinion....

    General Commentthe reason for all the confusion on the title is that a lot of people got the "bootleg" of the album which came out a coule of weeks before the CD was actually released. On the bootleg, the songs are in a different order, and all of the song titles (except "here to stay") are different. On the bootleg of untouchables, track 9 - Alone I Break is track 13 - Make It Go Away.
