  • Lyrics
  • This is about a boy named Justin who was dying of intestinal cancer. His last wish was to meet the members of KoRn.
  • Lead singer Jon Davis: "It really freaked me out. That threw a whole bunch of new kind of pressures on my head. That's really intense. Someone's gonna die and his last thing he wants to do is come hang out with us. So I truly just freaked out. It's like why would you want to meet me? What makes me so special?" >>

  • The first 12 tracks on the CD, which are 5 seconds each, form a minute of silence for Justin. >>

  • Jack from European UnionPoor Justin. RIP :-(
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjBabatunde, that Funky sound your hearing is a Guitar with an Envelope Filter, or "Auto-Wah" effect. Pete Towshend of The Who uses one in the song "Going Mobile". It's a cool effect

  • Babatunde from Lagos, Nigeriawhats with the twisted cords very psycadelic
  • Megan from Rio Rancho , NmI never met Justin but I have heard about him from him teacher who home schooled him when he was really sick. I really love Korn and His teacher told me about what they had done for justine and it made me love them even more. Justine must have wanted to meet you because of your great originality and true meaning in your art.-Megan K.
    Thank for doing it for Justin
  • Michael from Glen Allen, VaI never understood this song. I've always liked the song, but now I have new respect for the song. I didn't realize how personal some of the songs in "Follow the Leader" were.
  • Jake from Houston, TxIf you put the CD in your PC, the artist listed for the silence is Thomas Kornacker. Weird, huh?
  • Sam from Dublin, Irelandi hyave so much respect for korn for writing this amazing piece of work
  • Nick from Paramus, NjI did my best with the lyrics, they're really hard to understand especially in the chorus. I wish KoRn could just release official lyrics, but that's alright. If you think you have a better interpretation just go to "correct lyrics".
