We got a fucked up reason to live
Who really gives a fuck?
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up
You gotta get it straight
We're gonna give it up
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up

I am the burden of my everything
And of its scar
I'll be reborn in hatred
Feeling I can't love no more

I've had to suffer
I cannot wait for more
No loving and no praying
All my hate is for the taking

We got a fucked up reason to live
Who really gives a fuck?
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up
You gotta get it straight
We're gonna give it up
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up

I am the falling of my happiness,
It is no more
Stop loving, I’m still hating
Till I cannot hate no more

I've had to suffer
I cannot wait for more
No loving and no praying
All my hate is for the taking

I'm, I am filthy
Wasted piece of shit
I am disgusting
Take me away

We got a fucked up reason to live
Who really gives a fuck?
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up
You gotta get it straight
We're gonna give it up
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up
We got a fucked up reason to live
Who really gives a fuck?
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up
You gotta get it straight
We're gonna give it up
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna fuck you up
I wanna break everything
I wanna make it sting
We're gonna wake up hate
We're gonna wake it up

    General CommentI found what Jon was saying about this song:
    "The whole song is a f@%&-off. It's a song about feeling hopeless - how kids have no reason to live anymore. What do they have to f@%&ing live for? Back when I was growing up there were lots of opportunities for kids that seem to have fallen off. They skirt through school and get meaningless jobs or just go kill people and rob and s&!%. It's about starting a riot - really f@%&ing rebelling."
    Somehow this song and others like this make me want to break everything and wonder what I have to live for. This critical attitude made my life even worse than it already was, so now I listen to songs that are more optimistic and I don't feel anymore of this rage inside of me. I guess music really does influence me.

    General CommentDon't get me wrong, I love Korn. But for some reason this song just doesn't do it for me.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this i was like "eh, they're trying to be slipknot." then i realized korn could never stoop to that level....and now i love this song.....obviously about being tired of love and deciding to live to hate...

    General Commentsure this song wasnt really knorns style but,
    it rocks and the point gets across,
    plus ive herd worse korn songs(about 40% of issues)
    and i am die hard korn.
    so this one song should get credit before that 40% of issues

    General CommentThis is an awesome song. I think its a lot harder than most of Korn's recent stuff. And i agree with Drumsic6sicks, Issues wasn't that good.

    General CommentThis song is wicked. I would also have to say that Untouchables is a WAY better cd than Issues. But nothing will ever beat the hard rock sounds of their first album.

    General CommentSame with me ostegodead...I really did think they were trying to be Slipknot. It's true they could never be Slipknot, it's still not the best song on the album.
