Korn: Thoughtless Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2002
Pushing all the mercy down, down, down
I wanna see you try to take a swing at me
Come on, gonna put you on the ground, ground, ground
Why are you trying to make fun of me?
You think it's...

:Thumbing through the pages of my fantasies:
:Pushing all the mercy down, down, down:
This is where the kid who's being bullied fantasizes about
getting back at the kids who bully him. He has no mercy for them because they're so cruel to him.
:I wanna see you try to take a swing at me:
:C'mon gonna put you on the ground, ground, ground:
Same as before.
:Why are you trying to make fun of me?:
:You think it's funny? What the fuck you think it's doing to me?:
:You take your turn, lashing out at me:
:I want you crying while you're bloody down in front of me:
This song is obviously about being bullied and getting back at the bullies.

It is about being bullied, in fact it's about Jonathan Davis being bullied back in his days when he was a kid, and how much he fucked him up and how much he'd like to get back.

This is yet another song about getting bullied at school.I think it's just saying that you need to be brave against the bully. "try to take at swing at me?"
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

I think this song in general is just about revenge and getting back at those who you blame for your pain and misery. I was sent to a home for troubled youth when I was 16 and every time i hear this song, it reminds me of all the shit I went through at the hands of those sorry, worthless pieces of shit who get no better enjoyment out of life that hurting and tormenting children. This song fucking rocks and korn in still a great band.

My interpretation is kids bullying him day after day, Calling him names and messing with his mind. I believe he is saying he was weak back when he was bullied, but now he is not scared of them. "I wanna see you try to take a swing at me
Come on, gonna put you on the ground". The kids that bullied him have put him through so much mental sadness he wants them all dead. "thoughtless" as the song title, I think is kids bullied him didn't even think about what it was doing to him just said it without thinking.

That's all retarded. It's pure undefiled chaos, rage and anger towards the world, which he blames for being different.

This song is about the Columbine. It was one of the songs written in tribute.
I think this song is about...what the other person said...getting back at people who tore him down and degraded him...and longing to put his suffering to an end by taking thier lives...i may have taken the lyrics to literally, but that's my interpretation....hehe....this is my hate song...i play it whenever I'm mad at someone.....maybe that's why I came up with this interpretation...because I could relate to it.

I think this song could be about his father, especially when he says 'you think its funny, what the fuck you think you're doing to me', and just the chorus part gets very heavy and emotional. He writes lots of stuff about his father. I think it's either about his father or his ex-wife.

I also think it's about a kid, who wishes he could do something to get back at those who were so cruel and brutal to him/her. And dreams and fantasizes about how he would get back at them....Which in this case would be to kill them all.
