Korn – Finally Free Lyrics | The Nothing (2019)

Finally Free by Korn


It’s hard to see what you will find
When your heart’s dipped in agony
I tried too hard, I was too kind
I saw your face in everything

I’m hating it
It’s coming for me
I’m hating it
It’s laughing at me
I’m hating it
It’s time to realize what is really going down
I’m hating it
It’s staring at me
I’m hating it
It’s pulling on me
I’m hating it
I can’t believe it, take it down, take it down now

Where are you now?
I tried to get through to you, nothing is saving you
How could I fail?
This life betrayed you, and you are finally free

What you see is what you get
I had no time to process it
I think if I just turn around
That this nightmare will come around

Oh, I’m hating it
It’s coming for me
I’m hating it
It’s laughing at me
I’m hating it
It’s time to realize what is really going down
I’m hating it
It’s staring at me
I’m hating it
It’s pulling on me
I’m hating it
I can’t believe it, take it down, take it down now

Where are you now?
I tried to get through to you, nothing is saving you
How could I fail?
This life betrayed you, and you are finally free

You’re crying out for me (You’re crying, take it)
You’re crying out for me (You’re crying, take it)
It’s so hard to see (You’re crying, take it)
It’s so hard to see
It’s so hard to see
It’s so hard to see
You’re crying out for me
You’re crying out for me

Where are you now?
I tried to get through to you, nothing is saving you
How could I fail?
This life betrayed you and you are finally free

That you’re finally free
That you’re finally free
That you’re finally free
That you’re finally free

It’s so hard to see (You’re crying, take it)
It’s so hard to see (You’re crying, take it)
You’re crying out for me
You’re crying out for me


The lyrics of „The Nothing“ mainly deal with the loss of Deven Davis, wife of singer Jonathan Davis and mother of his children, who died of a drug overdose on August 17, 2018 at the age of 39 years. “Finally Free” describes Jonathan’s grief, mixed with the small comfort that she finally is freed from the burden of battling addiction. In an interview with Revolver Mag, guitarist James ‘Munky’ Shaffer chooses this song as his favorite from the album and explains:
“It’s totally relating to his wife and her death. She went through so much. Him and her together as a family went through so much, and if you know anybody who has battled with addiction, like I have and like so many of us in this band have, you sometimes feel like you can’t shake those demons. She’s finally free, which is essentially how we got the title of the song.“
