activist music: Korn

korn

Do I really need to present Korn?  Since their 1st album Korn (1994) to their 11th one: The Paradigm Shift (2013), more than 20 years of powerful 7 strings guitar riffs and amazing tortured Vocals by Mr Jonathan Davis. Korn are pioneers of Nu metal genre and an inspiration for many bands. You must know songs like: Freak On a LeashFalling Away From MeComing UndoneGet Up!Narcissistic CannibalBlindA.D.I.D.A.S.

Line up:

Spike In My Veins

To be totally honest if you are taking time to read the lyrics (I mean without watching the video) it is really to say that it have the same impact than when you watch this great music video. The song is Spike in my veins by Korn and it is clear that the images are very powerful, it illustrate exactly what the band wanted to express. Many terrible things are going on in the world and the medias are focusing on distractions. Distraction being a tool of the power in place to keep us uninformed and unable to react to anything as our attention is always directed on something meaningless such as pop singers, sports team, etc. The total control of the people by entertainment programs and commercials who are telling us what our goals and desires are. Here is how it is actually working 🙂

 

Lyrics.

“Spike In My Veins”
(feat. Noisia)

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, nowWe are hard and grey
Always fate, to do what they say
Calling me deranged
Feeling power, I must take its place some wayNever 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 veinsWe 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, nowWe are hard and grey
Always fate to do what they say
Calling me deranged
Feeling power, I must take its place some wayNever 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 veinsPounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veins
Pounding all these spikes in my veinsNever 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 veinsPounding 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

i just want our country to be as great as before

In this interview of Jonathan Davis for Infowars.com, he is talking about the meaning of the video and the message they wanted to pass but also about the role that korn wanted to have.

As much as i admire Korn and Jonathan Davis i can’t really agree with him when he is saying that america (or any other country) was ever better or any good before… But it is only my personal opinion. Still It good to have people like Korn to point out things that are wrong in the world. It is what i try to do with Activistnoise, using the power of music to help people to research, educate and debate about things that are clearly not tolerable.

Illuminati

Another interesting song by Korn : Illuminati on the album : The Path of Totality (2011)

“Illuminati”

I can’t believe what’s happening
Where is your self control
Why can’t you just be honest
The corruption takes its tollYou rape our hope
Too proud to cope
You built this house of shame
You smile, you gloat
This disease you promote
An infection is what we are nowI can’t believe this happened
The fear starts to grab hold
Then anger starts to take over
I will not be controlledYou rape our hope
Too proud to cope
You built this house of shame
You smile, you gloat
This disease you promote
An infection is what we are nowThey’re taking over now
Eating up our souls somehow
Taking over now
Parasites, they run around
The culprits won’t be found
They lie behind this mask of wealth
They’re taking over now
Illuminati they hideYou rape our hope
Too proud to cope
You built this house of shame
You smile, you gloat
This disease you promote
An infection is what we are nowYou rape our hope
Too proud to cope
You built this house of shame
You smile, you gloat
This disease you promote
An infection is what we are now
and the brilliant Mark Dice, (the Illuminati expert) commenting about Jonathan Davis saying: “Obama is an Illuminati puppet“.

Enjoy, that’s it for today !
