Cameltosis
by Korn

Album: Follow The Leader (1998)

Songfacts®:

  • Featuring Tre Hardson from Pharcyde, this song finds Jonathan Davis reflecting on how he's been scarred by a previous relationship. He explained:

    "That's a love song. It's about women in general, women who hurt me. It's Tre's lyrics. He's going on about chicks, and my chorus is like I'm so scared to love anyone and really let them in after I got hurt really really bad by a girl. I've let Renee (then fiancé) in a little bit, to be honest, but I'll never be that in love ever again. That's what I'm saying, now matter now many times you've loved, once or twice, you're gonna get f---ed, 'cause you usually do eventually."
  • Davis explained the made-up song title: "The word 'Cameltosis' is a joke. You know, like how girls get 'camel toes' when they pull their pants up too high in their crotch? We call it 'camel toes.'"
