Down With The Sickness Lyrics - Disturbed

Review The Song (72)



Can you feel that?
Ah, shit

Drowning deep in my sea of loathing
Broken your servant I kneel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems what's left of my human side
Is slowly changing in me
(Will you give in to me?)

Looking at my own reflection
When suddenly it changes
Violently it changes (oh no)
There is no turning back now
You've woken up the demon in me


Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me

I can see inside you, the sickness is rising
Don't try to deny what you feel
(Will you give in to me?)
It seems that all that was good has died
And is decaying in me
(Will you give in to me?)

It seems you're having some trouble
In dealing with these changes
Living with these changes (oh no)
The world is a scary place
Now that you've woken up the demon in me


Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness is the gift, that has been given to me


And when I dream
And when I dream
And when I dream
And when I dream
No mommy, don't do it again
Don't do it again
I'll be a good boy
I'll be a good boy, I promise
No mommy don't hit me
Why did you have to hit me like that, mommy?
Don't do it, you're hurting me
Why did you have to be such a bitch
Why don't you,
Why don't you just fuck off and die
Why can't you just fuck off and die
Why can't you just leave here and die
Never stick your hand in my face again bitch
FUCK YOU
I don't need this shit
You stupid sadistic abusive fucking whore
How would you like to see how it feels mommy
Here it comes, get ready to die


Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Get up, come on get down with the sickness
Open up your hate, and let it flow into me

Get up, come on get down with the sickness
You mother get up come on get down with the sickness
You fucker get up come on get down with the sickness
Madness has now come over me

My current stomach virus | Reviewer: Larry | 2/24/14

This masterpiece has helped me relate meaning through a difficult round of diarrhea and vomiting this morning.

"Can you feel that?
Ah, shit."

"Your servant I kneel...the sickness is rising...decaying in me"

awesome song | Reviewer: Simeon | 7/30/13

This song is awesome. It's got the Disturbed style in it like every single one of their song... and Mona you said that this sounds like Dave gave his soul to the devil... well hes a autheist :D

unique draiman | Reviewer: vijeet | 5/16/13

Aahhh the heaviness.. this particular stuff gets me pumped... theres something in disturbed those heavy riffs which actually pulls all its fans...this song is a perfect example of what you call as heavy music

they know their shit | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/5/11

here is my tought on the subject.the song is one of the best slow hardcore songs of all time.disturbed are alpha and omega of hard rock.every songs have a unique touch.its neither slow nor fast.the right tempo,lyrics,vocals and melody. i have never seen other bands pull this off.so(just pointing the obvious) disturbed are the best band in the universe.anyone who disagrees FUCK OFF AND DIE.

Mother society | Reviewer: KorAX | 4/7/11

Cool song actually. For those who says abt the chorus and all the other things. The song is not abt mother in a biological way. Mother is our society. And the song is about how this mommy beats every its child who is "wrong" from her point of view. This is what David Draiman said about this song.

@penny | Reviewer: MetallicA7x | 1/28/11

Maybe can be a type of "Revenge" of maybe the experience he had with his mom.
A "Revenge" for what she did to him when he was a child, letting her know the bad experiences his son felt during those abuses, screaming to her and telling her insults.

great..fucking..song | Reviewer: Dillon | 12/14/10

i love how epic and powerful this song is. it's always been one of my favorites. I love the switch in tone in David's voice during the song. I feel like it goes exacly with the song, like he's got a demon inside him that's about to come out, like the part: "(softer voice)there's no turning back now, you've woking up the demon!..(powerful voice) IN ME!!! and then the whole chorus is the demon inside of him singing.

good song!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/20/10

i like this song and listen to it everytime i go to the gym on the weekeend, i think its a pretty deep song with lots of meaning and potential,disturbed will forever rein supreme
in the world of metal!!.

Hmmm | Reviewer: cursedpsyche | 5/16/10

It seems to me more like he's giving in to hate than to the Devil specifically. To me, the sickness is hate and he's being filled with hate. And that hate is what's making him evil and insane and he's tired of fighting it so he's just giving in.

Love the song buuuut | Reviewer: Mona | 3/18/10

So i like this song and it pumps my adrenaline too, but - and i dont wana get all religious here, but it sounds a bit like he just gave himself up to the devil. "Broken your servant i kneel," i duno, but thats effed up if he was abused. Not that thats ever an excuse to make bad decisions.

song for tough man | Reviewer: Chetan Panwar | 1/31/10

This song as mentioned above is truly for tough guy n i swear this song pumps my ADRENALIN .Even i use this song my regular WORK-OUT.

think that this song shows how he feel about how he was treated as a child...i think that it shows what he was feeling like on the inside it also shows his relationship with his mother and how he felt about her i believe that even after all the bad things that had happened he still loved her but the only reason that he hated her was because she didnt exactly love him back i believe that all he wanted was a little bit more emotion from his mother he just wanted her to show him that she actually loved him...
And I quote from one of his interviews "And it's that state of things that 'disturbeds' us" Hence why the bands name is Disturbed.

Keep going Disturbed!I love you guys!

cool song but kinda f*cked up | Reviewer: john | 12/20/09

I don't know the whole background of this song and whether or not it has a deep meaning as some people in here claim, The song has cool rhythm and some cool lyrics up until the f*ucked up chorus part with the abusive mom, it could have deeper meaning but there's no way to tell by lyrics alone unless stated beforehand.

Giving me strenght | Reviewer: Yeni Pratiwi | 9/3/09

At first i listened to this song,i didn't exactly know what it meant,coz i got s0me trouble in my english. But i swear,the sound rises up my adrenalin. I turn it on with my earph0nes,loudly. Everytime i hear it,i get m0re spirit to survive. Well i'm just a po0r student that is sick of the people around that see me as strange pers0n. I'm n0t strange. I just d0n't kn0w h0w to socialize. N this s0ng makes me stand n say,"fuck you!!". After i searched the lyric in internet,i'm fully sure,i d0nt't need this shit...

hate and scared | Reviewer: penny | 8/10/09

i like this song and the bit of this songs but not the message of the this...i just wanna know why he's so scared and he hated his mom so much..... they did abuse his life so that he wanted his mom to die and to experience what he fills like and to tell some fucking bullshit word to his mom???
