  • Lead singer Jonathan Davis: "'All I want in life is to be happy', it's that simple. People say that it's become their own anthem. It's like whenever I start to feel good, something comes and takes it away and I feel like I'm nothing again, like I'm dead." >>

  • Zero from The Abyss, NjThe lyrics are:

    All I want in life is to be happy, happy.

    It seems funny to me
    how f--ked things can be.
    Every time I get ahead,
    I feel more dead.

    Jon has also claimed the lyrics were, "Every time I get h--d, I feel more dead."
  • Mike from Lasalle, OnAwesome song, Issues was Korn's best album IMO.
  • A.w. from Wichita, Ksthanks for stating the obvious keri so we can all understand
  • Keri from Dahlonega , GaI don't think Jonathan is talking about actually being closer to death or being dead he is talking about emotionally feeling dead.
  • Fatal from Aurora, Cothe title speaks for itself. it's about wanting to be happy. it's like no matter how far you get in life, youre only getting closer to death with every passing second.
  • Danielle from NorthumberlandI believe the live version of this at the Apollo was great, with the NYPD playing the drums and bagpipes
  • James from Victoria, CanadaOpening track to Issues; it's pretty good.
