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 stop 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
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 Commentthis song to me is about insanity. It's about crossing he line inbetween the two worlds almost, cause insanity is another world.
    but again, the chorus is strangely optimisitic 'i'm trying to find a better way, but i'm trapped cant get away, all i think is about ysterday, i could fly." this is one of the few times that Jon sounds like he wants to be in a better position in his life. ANother influential song.

    General CommentFor some reason I always relate this song to what happened with Head. Korn had reached the peak of their musical career, but they were dealing with a lot of problems with alcoholism and drug use. "Walking on a Wire", something similar to they're under so much pressure, and they're always being watched by the media. It's like JD is reflecting on what life used to be like when they were still up and coming and having fun.

    General CommentIt could also include the fact that he was picked on in high school. And in the video of thoughtless the guy was drawing pictures beside the words "I'm Hiding".
    So that could be another thing he's singing about.

    General CommentIn my opinion, I didn't think Follow the Leader was that great. It would have to be Korn or Life is Peachy

    General CommentI think there is another way to understand it... Schizophrenia. Like when he says about the faces and the are his, and how he can't get away from the voices.

    General CommentI agree with Anfer'ss interp on the song only, I think Follow The Leader was good but I can barely use any of it to let out aggresion/anger.
