Bleeding Out
by Korn

Album: The Path Of Totality (2011)
  • I'm staring at a face
    I don't recognize
    Rotten and replaced
    Lifeless and benign
    You can never say
    That I didn't try
    I can not erase
    What's in my mind

    I'm the one to give to you
    I'm the one to break you through
    Anything you ever do will
    Eat you up and impale you

    I'm bleeding out
    Been crucified by trusting you
    Hate turns to shame
    By praising you, adoring fool
    I'm the one that set you free
    Bound to burn for eternity 'cause
    I'm bleeding out
    You're never there when I need you

    My thoughts they interlace
    Been spun out for sometime
    I wander in this maze
    An act that is sublime
    You can never say
    That I didn't try
    I cannot erase
    What's in my mind

    I'm the one to give to you
    I'm the one to break you through
    Anything you ever do will
    Eat you up and impale you

    I'm bleeding out
    Been crucified by trusting you
    Hate turns to shame
    By praising you, adoring fool
    I'm the one that set you free
    Bound to burn for eternity 'cause
    I'm bleeding out
    You're never there when I need you

    I'm bleeding out
    Been crucified by trusting you
    Hate turns to shame
    By praising you, adoring fool
    I'm the one that set you free
    Bound to burn for eternity 'cause
    I'm bleeding out
    You're never there when I need you Writer/s: REGINALD ARVIZU, JONATHAN HOWSMAN DAVIS, JONATHAN BARRY GOOCH, RAYMOND LEE LUZIER, JAMES CHRISTIAN SHAFFER

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjI'm pretty sure that's a bogus songfact up there. C'mon a friggin RAT?! The lyrics seem to be about someone who makes priomises they can't keep and always desperately need assurance/approval from their peers. (reminds me of someone I know)
