Break Some Off
by Korn

Album: Take A Look In The Mirror (2003)
  • "It's the heaviest Korn song we've ever done," the band's lead singer, Jonathan Davis, tells MTV News of this album track. "It's about me losing it. You ever get in a situation where some things aren't going your way and you want to just lose your mind, but you can't? You're trying to maintain yourself, but it's just screwing with you and you're doing everything to keep it back? That's what that song is about."
