My life is such a waste
Begging for something to work this time
But why can't I relate?
Feeling all I do is get what's mine
Holding on to faith
Never gave me nothing but despair
So why do I create just to be swallowed?

I can't take
(We have a star)
I can't take
(We got a fantasy)
Come what may
(We are the stars)
I can't wait
(I’ll take what’s mine)

Been hating all this time,
Before a crowd inside
Been hating all the faces
Of everything that I could find
Been hating all this time,
Too far to cross the line
Been hating all the faces
Of everything that I could find

I cannot leave this place
Burning up inside this space of mine
But why can't I replace feelings I find hard to really find?
I try but I can't taste
Memories they always fuck with me
So why do I create just to be swallowed?

I can't take
(We have a star)
I can't take
(We got a fantasy)
Come what may
(We are the stars)
I can't wait
(I’ll take what’s mine)

Been hating all this time,
Before a crowd inside
Been hating all the faces
Of everything that I could find
Been hating all this time,
Too far to cross the line
Been hating all the faces
Of everything that I could find

All my feelings have been eating all of me
Feed inside
Is there something wrong with me?

I can't take
(We have a star)
I can't take
(We got a fantasy)
Come what may
(We are the stars)
I can't wait
(I’ll take what’s mine)

Been hating all this time,
Before a crowd inside
Been hating all the basics
Of everything that I could find
Been hating all this time,
Too far to cross the line
Been hating all the faces
Of everything that I could find

    General Comment"I mean, basically this whole song is about I've been hating everything for so long, and I think that's just basically negative energy that I've been just putting out." –Jonathan Davis

    It probably means he dislikes everything he sees for so long, but I'm not sure if he means using self-control to hide it.

    General CommentI think that it is about him and another person look back on life and realize how screwed up it is and how many people messed with them and then they feel like they need to get away anyway possible.

    General CommentOk its 'hating' not belating, if it would be belating then the song would be named belating! if u take away the 'hating' and switch it with "belating" then the word hate would not appear in the text anywhere, and making the name complete bullshit becuz korn is known for usually including the song's name in the singing.
