Metal Monday – Korn – Start the Healing

Welcome to a very late Metal Monday. I was so happy I got another book yesterday, I totally forgot to write a post. Luckily one of my favorite bands dropped a single during last week and also announced that there will be another Korn album coming early in 2022. I am exited for this. I have listened to this a few times now and it really captures Korn in a few of their well known era’s. I can only see this song as Jonathan Davis coming to terms with the death of his wife a few years ago. It captures a very 90’s Nu Metal vibe and I am happy with it. Start the Healing sounds like a man accepting what life has thrown at him ad how he can deal with it to the best of his abilities. In JD’s terms it’s writing songs very much like this one. Requiem, Korn’s 14th studio album, is said to drop 4 February next year.

Hope you enjoy.

Lyrics:

Do you really wanna come with me?
It’s hard to see from the eyes of a stranger
Are you ready for the feeling to leave
So that you can breathe and not live with the danger?

But there is always something fighting its way back in
But there is always something pushing me to give in
Do you really wanna make believe
And try to achieve a little break from the anger?

I should’ve been good
I should’ve been down
I couldn’t let go
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing
I should’ve withstood
I shouldn’t bow down
I couldn’t get through
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing

Do you really wanna prowl with me?
This travesty cuts sharp like a razor
Are you ready for your scars to bleed?
You will succeed pulling out the invaders

But there is always something fighting its way back in
But there is always something pushing me to give in
Do you really wanna make believe
And try to achieve a little break from the anger?

I should’ve been good
I should’ve been down
I couldn’t let go
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing
I should’ve withstood
I shouldn’t bow down
I couldn’t get through
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing

Everything I’m feeling burst into flames
Looking at a soul that’s broken and strain
Every night the wish is always the same
Keep on hoping that I don’t go insane

The more you fall for it
The more it starts to stick
The more you fall for it
The more it starts to stick
The more you fall for it
The more it starts to stick
The more you fall for it
It’s never gonna quit

I should’ve been good
I should’ve been down
I couldn’t let go
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing
I should’ve withstood
I shouldn’t bow down
I couldn’t get through
What could I do?
I can take it all away, the feelings
Break apart the pain and start the healing

Break apart the pain and start the healing
