Korn – Narcissistic Cannibal lyrics

Don't want to be sly and defile you
Desecrate my mind and rely on you
I just want to break this crown
But it's hard when I'm so rundown and

You're so cynical
Narcissistic cannibal
Got to bring myself back from the dead

Sometimes I hate
The life I made
Everything is wrong every time
Pushing on, I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Haunting me taking it's sweet time
Holding on, I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life 'til the end of my days

Don't want to be rude, but I have to
Nothing's good about the hell you put my through
I just need to look around
See the light that has come unbound

You're so cynical
Narcissistic cannibal
Got to bring myself back from the dead

Sometimes I hate
The life I made
Everything is wrong every time
Pushing on, I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Haunting me taking it's sweet time

Sometimes I hate
The life I made
Everything's wrong every time
Pushing on, I can't escape
Everything that comes my way
Haunting me taking it's sweet time
Holding on, I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life 'til the end of my days
Holding on, I'm lost in a haze
Fighting life 'til the end of my days

    My perception: religion, social norm, morallity etc. Shoved down our throughts from birth - we all wear masks or a 'crown' and burn inside to break free and reveal our true selves. We dare not as it is already such a struggle keeping face as it is and a lot of energy is wasted on the false perception we portrait on the outside. We dislike ourselves and the lives we built because inevitably it is a big fat lie and the design was never our own. The fight inside resulting in us just surviving life. We do not dare come to our own as we will surely be judged. All that feels so right within we have long forsaken and we are haunted through that which we allowed to rule us.

    These lyrics were derived from the "hate" emotion. I brainstormed them in an attempt to be creative, while I was in an agitated mood, or state of mind. I did my own singing presentation, along with a few changes to ensure the vocabulary and grammar would sound the best it could. Another focus was to closely relate the lyrics, to the composing artists, the music genre, and inevitably the fans. There are no wrong interpretations to the meaning of the lyrics, as long as the meaning is also derived from the hate emotion.

    An individual that feels alone in this world. The someone, the "you" in the song, someone they felt they could rely on, becomes the person they resent for being so awful by criticizing every move they made. The individual doesn't wan to put people off, or look like the bad guy, but as their life goes on, they realize the mistakes they made, and know they need to do what they have to fix it. As they try to right their wrongs, they are haunted, fighting through the muck of despair and self guilt. This song in a nut shell is something we all can relate to at some point in out lives.

    He is referring to himself in the third person when he says 'narcissistic cannibal. ' it is as if he is viewing his life as it is now from a future (or past) position and is displeased with the person he sees that he is/has become. He is holding on to this life that has caused him to become so cynical and narcissistic, fighting with it. Yet, he also realizes that he must push through and see the light that he has brought into the world or that still exists in the world.

    I absolutely f*****g dare you to tell me this means anything at all. Illuminati guy's idea was close to rational, but why would they rail against the music industry in a song they did with the flavor of the minute? (skrillex).
    Doesn't it seem counterproductive to beg for release from the shackles of fame during the song that is supposed to help your band clutch on to the remaining shreds of attention they have left after the masses moved on from their brand of radio-edit "rage"? Not like "yall want a single" ended up a single or anything. (it did).
