Songfacts®:

  • The "it" in this song is lead singer Jon Davis' fame. He knows it's not going to last forever but doesn't know when it's all going to go away and he's terrified of the fact. He's trying to make himself accept the fact that he's going to lose it all one day. >>

  • Alice from São Paulo, BrazilI don't think it has nothing to do with his fame, cause he says ''I don't want it..make it go away''
  • Lil'tinker from Neverland (duh!), Virgin Islands (u.s.)it is much deeper than loosing his bling, maybe has to do with his mind, but not "state of mind"
  • Martin Owens from Belfast, Irelandamm johnathan davis is afraid of losing what his mind or his money ?
  • Nick from Paramus, NjJon plays additional drums
  • Joe from Houston, TxI dont care what anyone says, KoRn is one of the all time best bands ever.
