Starting Over
by Korn

  • This song was one of several tracks on the album that were inspired by Jonathan Davis' near-death experience with a blood disease. Davis explained to the Real Detroit Weekly: "When I was in Europe I came down with a blood disorder called ITP, and thinking I was going to die made me rearrange my priorities in life and think about what's really important. It kept going through my head, me dying and my sons not being able to have a dad to grow up with, s--t drove me crazy, I really pooled from that experience to write a lot of the lyrics."
  • Terry Bozzio (Frank Zappa, Missing Persons) played drums on this track and seven others on the album. Jonathan Davis was full of admiration for Bozzio's efforts saying on the band's website: "Terry has gotta be the best drummer in the world; he brought a more progressive feel to the band. His drum kit was huge, and all the colors and sounds he made pushed our music in different directions we might not ever have thought about going."
