Korn - Got the Life

Hate...Something...Sometime...Someway...Something kicked on the floor for me
Something inside
I'll never ever follow
So...Give...Me...Something...That...Is...For...Real
I'll never ever follow

Get your boogie on
Get your boogie on

Hate...Something...Somewhere...Each day...Feel'n' ripped off for gett'n' off
Why? This shit inside
Now everyone will follow
So...Give...Me...Nothing...Just...Feel
And now a sheep will follow

God thanks me...The more I see the lie...Didn't want us to see
God told me...I've already got the life...Oh I say...
God thanks me...The more I see the lie...Didn't want us to see
God told me...I've already got the life...Oh I say...

Each day I can feel it swallow
Inside something they took from me
I don't feel your deathly ways
Each day I feel so hollow
Inside always beating me
You will never see
So come dance with me
...Dance with me
...Dance with me
...Dance with me
...Dance with me
...Dance with me
...Dance with me
...My pain!

God thanks me...The more I see the lie...Didn't want us to see
God told me...I've already got the life...Oh I say...
God thanks me...The more I see the lie...Didn't want us to see
God told me...I've already got the life...
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got the life
...Got...The...Life

"Got the Life" is a song written and recorded by Korn for their third studio album, Follow the Leader, which was released as the album's second single on November 23, 1998. It was recorded in April 1998 at NRG Recording Studios. The band decided they would release the song as a promotional single after each member found that there was something "special" about the song. The single had "phenomenal success", and its music video was requested more than any other video on MTV's TRL, making it the first officially "retired" music video. "Got the Life" did not receive much attention in the music press; however, the song was rewarded a gold certification in Australia by the Australian Recording Industry Association. It peaked at #1 on the Canadian RPM Rock/Alternative Chart chart, as well as #15 on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #17 on the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart. Korn decided to shoot a music video for "Got the Life" after the reception from fans and employees at NRG Recording Studios was very positive. The music video's concept was by the band's bassist Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu. Their managers advised them to request Joseph Kahn to direct the video. Kahn also was the director for "A.D.I.D.A.S." music video in 1997. After asking Kahn to direct their video, he responded saying "That's the stupidest idea I've ever heard." Offended by and against his response, Korn hired McG, director of the band's music videos from their self-titled debut album — "Blind", "Shoots and Ladders", "Clown", and "Faget". On January 12, 1999, music video was the first video that is considered to be "retired" from MTV's daily top ten countdown, Total Request Live. MTV's Total Request Live said the song was the most requested music video "for too long so they had to stop airing it so other artists would have a chance at the coveted number one spot." The video, however, never actually reached #1; it peaked at #2. (In fact, for the majority of its run, it was stuck at third behind videos by N'Sync and Britney Spears; at the time, Daly jokingly called the #3 position on the countdown "The Korn Spot".) Deuce, the video album where "Got the Life"'s music video appears on, was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. California rapper WC makes a cameo appearance in the video dancing. Eminem, Jay Gordon of Orgy, Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit, and UFC fighter Tito Ortiz can be seen in the end of the video.
