LYRICS
------

There you are alone
With no hope of ever having
Something to be proud of
Something earned without begging
Yes I know you're the person
The person close to me
Who do you think you are
What more do you want from me?

Ball Toungue (ad lib)

Why are you at home?
Buried in your self-pity
Why do you insist on
Making a mockery out of me?
Yes, I know you're the person
The person who took time with me
Does it give you the right 
To expect your life revolves around me?

Ball Toungue (ad lib)

You were my problem... (Where does our friendship end?)
You were my problem... (I'm not going to give in...)

How can you fucking doubt me? But not again... (There you are alone...)

Ball Toungue (ad lib)


when korn plays this song live, sometimes they sub "Lodi Dodi" by Slick
Rick in for the chorus. for those of you who don't know, Lodi Dodi goes
like this--
 
Lodi Dodi
We likes to party
We don't cause trouble
We don't bother nobody
We're
Just some kids who're on the mic
And when we rock up on the mic
We rocks the mic right

i'm pretty sure that numerous riffs here are wrong in places, they just don't sound right

allow me to elaborate, in the verse i'm pretty sure there is a 1 somewhere and in the intro it sounds like there's too many muffles going on, other than that 3 stars
