“Black Is The Soul” – Korn [YouTube Music Video]

LYRICS

As it all falls down
Do I walk away?
Or do l stand my ground
And accept my fate?
And there’s the faceless cries
That twist my every dream
And almost every night
I hear the demon sing

Why are we going on this way?
Why do we play these games in vain?
Nothing’s gonna break it down
And build us back again
So why did the path have to lead this way?
Black is the soul that’s led astray
You’re leading me to places I can never follow

Happiness is found
In darkest ways
And as I search around
I knew nothing but mistakes
And there’s the faceless cries
That twist my every dream
And almost every night
I hear the demon sing

Why are we going on this way?
Why do we play these games in vain?
Nothing’s gonna break it down
And build us back again
So why did the path have to lead this way?
Black is the soul that’s led astray
You’re leading me to places I can never follow

And when you scream
You push me so much further ahead
And when I leave
I always walk right back again
And when you cry
The tears are cleansing bitterness
I’m out of time
I’m slowly dying, give me back my life!
Just give me back my life!
Just give me back my life!
Just give me back my life!

Why are we going on this way?
Why do we play these games?
Nothing’s gonna break it down
And build us back again
So why did the path have to lead this way?
Black is the soul that’s led astray
You’re leading me to places I can never follow

As it all falls down
Do I walk away?
Or do I stand my ground
There’s nothing left to say

Korn have shared a music video for “Black Is The Soul,” a track from their most recent album, The Serenity Of Suffering. Watch it above, courtesy of the band’s YouTube.

The video shows the band rocking out the song while a faceless woman walks through water. There is a lot of black, and also some nice shots of frontman Jonathan Davis’ mic stand, which was created by renowned artist H.R. Giger who passed away in 2014 at the age of 74.

JD shed some light with Noisey:

“Black Is The Soul” is a song about being pulled away from the right path and the video reflects that experience of trying to navigate those conflicting emotions… I feel that this songwriting and production paired with the aesthetic look of the video shows a maturity and growth from the band that is continually evolving.

The Serenity Of Suffering is currently available on Amazon. You can also stream the full LP and read our review here on Zumic.
