Korn - Do What They Say Lyrics




Walk away when you're angry
Brace yourself, there's nothing to gain
Old enough to know the outcome
More blood, it's always the same

Aren't we cool and aren't we calm
For facing death we run head-on
Aren't we cool and aren't we calm
For god we've suffered for so long

Do what they say
Or they take it away
I'd rather be dead then carry on

(wait) Bite your lip, don't be cursing
(we must) We musn't take God's name in vain
(in vain) Blunt your knife, pull the curtain
(impulse) Impulses you must refrain

Aren't we cool and aren't we calm
For facing death we run head-on
Aren't we cool and aren't we calm
For god we've suffered for so long

Do what they say
Or they take it away
I'd rather be dead then carry on

Somebody carry on with this burden
I can't remember anything
I can't be certain

Aren't we cool and aren't we calm
For facing death we run head-on

Do what they say
Or they take it away
I'd rather be dead then carry on

  11. Kartoffel

    [Verse 1]
    Walk away when you're angry
    Brace yourself, there's nothing to gain
    Old enough to know the outcome
    Blood more blood, it's always the same
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For facing death, we run head-on
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For God, we've suffered for so long
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For facing death, we run head-on

    [Chorus]
    Do what they say!
    Or they take it away!
    I'd rather be dead than carry on!

    [Verse 2]
    Bite your lip, don't be cursing
    Mustn't take God's name in vain
    Blunt your knife, pull the curtain
    Impulses you must refrain
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For facing death, we run head-on
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For God, we've suffered for so long
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For facing death, we run head-on

    [Chorus]
    Do what they say!
    Or they take it away!
    I'd rather be dead than carry on!

    [Bridge]
    So I carry on with this burden
    I can't remember anything
    I can't be certain
    Aren't we cool and aren't we calm?
    For facing death, we run head-on

    [Chorus]
    Do what they say!
    Or they take it away!
    I'd rather be dead than carry on!

  12. The Pretender

    Favorite song from this album

  13. WhatsHappening783402

    Their best album

  14. Maddy Stacy

    I think everyone gets a different meaning from this song... for me, it sounds like someone cutting. For me, I struggle with self harm problems, the lines "Old enough to know the outcome" and "More blood it's always the same" are just reminders that there's no use, and the "Impulses" that Jon refers to are just that, the urges and impulse to self harm. I sing this song and it makes me feel so strong yet so vulnerable. I absolutely love it.

    Christopher Howe

    maddy stacy well let me tell you the same nigga in your very own head that makes the decision to cut..has the very same power to do literally everything you resent when at your most inebriated n girl...goddamn it fuck society for teaching you N impulse unfilfilling and unrealistic and totally retarded.I can gain like. hear me. the feeling you get from cutting I have gotten. no scars how'd I do it? oh Idk living w abuse in other areas but you won't get engaged saying o yeah I picked tht up in birth and hurt it felt so bad I must had to show off to "myself" all u ever did with cutting was show off to your self. sigh" feel better to I'm Chris Howe fro. st,Charles no hmu n yeah I'm extra drunk to extend my hand like so.

    Christopher Howe

    Missouri st.Charles dummy n no I don't take gods reality in vain I've...I've been there yo so plz go calm n sour rather u dig..deep

  23. CMKurup

    Every time i hear this song i think of Silent hill (game) and pyramid head slaughtering someone.

    AJGvmbit

    Funny how the vocalist made a song for Silent Hill Downpour.

    DeadlyCookie

    Too bad it was for the worst title...

    FandA

    DeadlyCookie downpour is good. One of the few survival horror of the last years...

  24. lisa karson

    I have to say I'm an old school Korn fan since they began. I've seen them 4 times but I had to check this newer shit (to me) out n I loveee this song and Starting Over

    WhatsHappening783402

    you need to hear a insane and Rotting in vain

    Roxar96

    Hold on and black is the soul =)

  25. RandyMarsh's GamingPitStop

    29, been listening to korn sense 13... best band ever no matter what... I always use to compare them to system. ( serj, mainly) after there DVD and I seen them hanging out together it made me happier then ever. my two favorite bands hanging out. who wouldn't be thrilled after seeing that

    The Pistol Punk Theory

    i wanna see this too ^^

    Keys Inside

    They each have some beautiful oriental aspect to their melodies

    WhatsHappening783402

    I agree. they are awesome in every way

  26. PMR

    "....more blood, it's always the same."

  27. Vladimir Ingilizov

    Amazing song!!!!

  28. Raptorking18

    "Do What They Say, Or They Take It All Away", Kind of reminds me of my parents. They found out I like KoRn and they took all my music away and wants me to listen to happier stuff. This music is my happy stuff, they don't realize.

    patricia guzman

    Coming from parents that wanted to change me I understand you *hugs* I've been alternative/goth since I was in 5th grade and they never liked it at all.. They hated my "devils music" lol but I'm not gonna lie.. It's going to take some time for them to accept it. I'm 20 and they finally accepted me the way I am :) as the time passes by, they will understand it's not "just a phase"

    Raptorking18

    I agree. Parents seem to hate it because it's different from what they have known, and some people don't like change. It's different from them, but they should accept that it's ok the be different. I seem to be one of a few people in a 3,000 people school who likes bands like Korn and Slipknot

    Christopher Howe

    Raptorking18 lol! fuck no!

    Christopher Howe

    they can suck one

    Brother in Christ

    Ha sucks for you!!

  29. SquaficleDude

    @Roger sykes, he's not "real." He isn't religious. The song is an irony. Its bloody title is "Do What They Say," and in the part you mention he's talking about how in society, we can't take god's name in vein.

    CALIKO707

    SquaficleDude what society? Who doesn't take Gods name in vain

  30. Hansa Pils

    what is the name of the album ?
    well i like liten epilogical ,but this one blows me away realy good!

    Waffnor

    People will say it's not named which it is and it's from the album titled "Untitled."

    Hansa Pils

    thankyou (:

    Rastko Wellthatisgr8

    It's not titled "untitled", that would be lame, and do you see the word or any words on the cover? The album has not been given a name, the album is untitled. It's 'the untitled Korn album'.

    Rastko Wellthatisgr8

    "the weird steempunk bird creature album" is another nice way to call it XD just like people call the Beatles' album with the white cover 'the white album', and they didnt name it that, its called 'The Beatles' but this is easer, you just say 'it's the white album', thats a descriptive name that you can apply, but you gotta remember that thats not the real name. cheers, and all that other cheesy shit people say at the end of their responsive coments to show that they are peaceful well intentioned individuals on youtube

  31. foampositeKickz

    Such an underrated album and song

  32. Isaac Jameson

    LOVE this album

    Mr V

    This album I think would be titled either "Abysmal" or "Destruction from within".

    Isaac Jameson

    oh thanks, i just thought it was untitled 

    Mr V

    I guess Korn could not think of anything to name the album.

    Ryan Gulbrandsen

    @Mr V Jonathan Davis explained why they didn't give a title to the album is because they just wanted us fans to call it whatever we want.

  33. Carl Lewis

    korn and then greenday just saying

  34. Zak Valkyrie

    underrated song

  35. Chibi Sier

    we shall call this album "the creepy bird man".

  36. Justice782

    fuck no . Korn is the best band ever.
    #1. Korn
    #2. System of a Down
    #3. Metallica/Mudvayne

    Jimmy Luypaert

  45. UntitledKirk

    @dogerman11 You changed the song because they mentioned "god" once? Whatever. You're missing out.
