Right Now Lyrics

I'm feeling mean today
Not lost, not blown away
Just irritated and quite hated
Self control breaks down
Why's everything so tame?
I Like my life insane
I'm fabericating and debating
Who I'm gonna kick around

Right now
Can't find a...

    This song is a very violent song that describes how he's just feeling mean today and wants to rip everyones heads off and punch everyone in the face basically. It talks about fucking hating you(which in general is saying that to just anyone who flat out get in his way on his bad day) and he'll slash and beat you.

    "That's a song about waking up and wanting to kill everybody." – Jonathan Davis

    Right Now is a song about a man who has reached his breaking point. He wants to demolish anything in his way, including himself. The song addresses anger, hatred, and self-harm, and I love it. The song is easily one of KoRn's best.

    It's a personal hate directed towards a particular individual. Could include but not be limited to himself such as seeing himself in a mirror... However to slash and beat one is intimate very personal. We all have bad days feel like jacking anyone in the face just so they're day is shit like ours. But this is a hate for a particular individual... His chorus says it directly "when I see you" meaning a particular person not some random person for which no reason was given to hate. Its no secret things of real dark ugly has occurred in his life hell listen to album issues track 4 daddy speaks bout him being raped by his father while his mother watched. Js put more thought into it way the words are said

    The song reminds me of my borderline. When I get angry or mental unstable, it reminds me of the song

    The song is about how he is tired of havig people constantly in your face in your buisness and overall to dam absorbed in your problems and you just wanna hit them and everyone who thinks they know better about you and your life.

    Right now is a song about thick, fresh hate. Jonathan Davis is in apissy mood over waht somebody had said to him or done to him and the lyrics contain stuff like "i cant control myself i fucking hate you" and "Im feeling mean today" the so ngs about john letting out his innerhated for everyone who has picked on him, made fun of him and/or treated him like shit for no reason. THis song helps get all the hate out of me aswell, and i cant help myself but to scream allong to the lyrics

    Well this song could be about a few things. It could be about how JD is so mad about everything that happened to him, so he's just pissed off @ the world and just wants to kill everyone. OR it could be lyrically speaking about how you wake up & is just pissed off and just feel like smashing everyone & everything in your sight. Well, that's just my opinion..

    Damn you guys are completely full of shit. This song is not about wanting to kill everyone, it's about John revealing his inner hatred with people who have wronged him.

    I think it's about looking at yourself and being completely disgusted with your life and everything you've ever done.

    In straight words this song means that you get out of control and try to kill everyone and yourself too.

    What it actually means, as I take it, is that the reason that he hates the world is because he hates himself and all the shit he has done in his life. That is the reason that KoRn is so popular, their music is intimate, from the heart, and hey, lets be real, fuck the metaphors KoRn give this shit strait, up undiluted. when Jonathan has a message his fans know sooner or later. What would the wourld do without honest bands like KoRn and Slipknot. Long live Rock and Roll!! LONG LIVE KoRn!! O.K. I'm all cracked out so I'm out. - Michael Gage, Fargo, ND

    I think, maybe this "retard" which he wants to beat is he himself according to the verse - I think it's time to bleed I'm gonna cut myself and watch the blood hit the ground. But nothing in bad sense:-).

    I think the song is about some retard who Jon wants to cause harm to. That's how it looks in the music video.

    Obviously the best song to go fucking nuts and beat the shit out of everybody who's wronged you. It sort of makes you feel empowered. Wicked song, if I could, I'd have a boom-box with this song ready for when I go to fuck peeps up.
