Singled Out: Love and Death (Brian 'Head' Welch of Korn)
"The Abandoning" was written from a couple different point of views... it would be really hard to tell you everyone's, so I will just tell you mine.
"The Abandoning" is about the transformation from "Awake to Zombie", NOT in the sense of Romero's Living Dead, but more like Custer's study on "unconscious will." Although a zombie like transformation DOES have to take place... Imagine slowly becoming unconscious and knowing/watching it happen... pretty scary.
The song is about become the statistic, about turning into the unconscious man yet still being trapped inside to watch life just waste away before your eyes. Like having a job you hate or being in a relationship that going know where...you might as well be dead... alive.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and watch their new lyric video here. If you like what you hear and you want more, you can preorder the album on iTunes right here!
