Songfacts®:

  • Frontman and lyricist Jonathan Davis doesn't hold back on Korn III: Remember Who You Are and he is at his most vitriolic on this track. He said: "I let everything flow, while I was coming up with lyrics. They're about me living my life for others when I shouldn't, people-pleasing all of the time, stress, guilt and all kinds of emotions we live with everyday that destroy us and tear us down. I write about all of the fake people around us and how I always try to fix other people's problems. I write what I feel, and it comes out naturally. I've got a lot of s--t built up inside me; that doesn't go away."
