Spike In My Veins
by Korn

Album: The Paradigm Shift (2013)
  • We are the ones taking all the pain
    Falling on our faces
    They don't care anyway
    Anyway, now
    You're the one that makes me feel like I'm alive
    You're the one that pushes me all the time
    All the time, now

    We are hard and grey
    Always praised to do what they say
    Calling me deranged
    Feeling power, I must take its place some way

    Never gonna run away
    Seeking out the path
    But the pain always gets in the way
    Slowly watch me die
    I'm insane, so dangerous
    Don't you dare get in my way
    Throwing in the towel
    Got me strained, so betrayed
    Get the fuck out of my way
    Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins

    We are the ones reaching out in vain
    Trying to solve our problems
    They won't go away, go away now
    You're the one that makes me feel like I'm alive
    You're the one that pushes me all the time
    All the time, now

    We are hard and grey
    Always praised to do what they say
    Calling me deranged
    Feeling power, I must take its place some way

    Never gonna run away
    Seeking out my path
    But the pain always gets in the way
    Slowly watch me die
    I'm insane, so dangerous
    Don't you dare get in my way
    Throwing in the towel
    Got me strained, so betrayed
    Get the fuck out of my way
    Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins

    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins

    Never gonna run away
    Seeking out my path
    But the pain always gets in the way
    Slowly watch me die
    I'm insane, so dangerous
    Don't you dare get in my way
    Throwing in the towel
    Got me strained, so betrayed
    Get the fuck out of my way
    Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins

    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins
    Looking at my thoughts, I take my time
    Pounding all these spikes in my veins Writer/s: Fieldy, Nightwatch, Brian Welch, Brian Phillip Welch, David Silveria, James Shaffer, Jonathan Davis, Jonathan Houseman Davis, Ray Luzier, Reginald Arvizu
