This time I'm taking it away, I've got a problem
With me getting in the way, my violent side
so i take my face and bash it into a mirror
i wont have to see the pain.
Bleed, bleed!

This state is elevating as the hurt turns into hating
anticipating all the fucked up feelings again

the hurt inside is fading
this shit's gone way too far
all this time i've been waiting
oh i can not grieve anymore
for what's inside awaking
I'm done, I'm not a whore
you've taken everything and
oh i can not give anymore

My minds done with this
okay i've got a question
can i throw it all away
take back what's mine
so i take my time
riding the blade down the line
each cut, closer to the vein

this state is elevating as the hurt turns into hating
anticipating all the fucked up feelings again

My hurt inside is fading
this shit's gone way too far
all this time i've been waiting
oh i can not grieve anymore
for what's inside awaking
im done, im not a whore
you've taken everything and
oh i can not give anymore

I'm here to stay (bring it down)
Bring it down!
Bringin' it down
gonna break it down
Bringin' it down (repeat)
gonna BREAK IT

This state is elevating as the hurt turns into hating
anticipating all the fucked up feelings again

the hurt inside is fading
this shit's gone way too far
all this time i've been waiting
oh i can not grieve anymore
for what's inside awaking
I'm done, I'm not a whore
you've taken everything and
oh i can not give anymore

give anymore

    General CommentNo one can blame a band for getting popular.you always knew that somewhere deep down inside yourself, you wanted them to strike it rich.Because you knew Jonathan Davis is an extemely talented mother fucker. It's just other things come up with that. Like life, getting older, your style being constantly copied and reproduced, needing to explore your creative abilities. Cause cone on if all korn sounded like self titled. You'd be wondering when in the fuck are they ever going to do something different. I'll admit, even as a die hard korn fan, that ISSUES was a little weak on the creative side.But I noticed a pattern hear me out:
    1. KORN debut album (kicks ass)
    2.Life is peachy (korn was unsatisfied they felt they rushed it, bad by korn's standards)
    3.Follow the leader (KORN # 1 on charts, popularity engulfs the band)
    4.ISSUES (came out kinda quick, once again rushed production, plus many see this as korn's way of making an easy dollar cause the name is popular, but hey wouldn't you if given the chance)
    5.Untouchables (they took there time once again, paired up differently while writing, David's arm thing, and they made a pretty kick ass album)
    so you see the pattern:
    1.good
    2.bad
    3.good.
    4.bad
    5.good
    if the next album is horrible my theory will hold strong only time will tell. But, nevertheless I never abandon a group I listen to. with one exception Limp Bizkit 1st album was only good one then they turned into rap and then fell apart. so sad, but not really Fred just tried to please too many people and wound up with nothing.so all and all korn is still the best band out there because they started what everyone else around them is doing now.
    Oh, anyways the best version of this song is a remix done by Mindless Self Indulgence. Check it out at mindlesscrackers.com it's a free download and it's pretty quick. hope you enjoy.
