Linkin Park Lyrics                                                                            Xero Sampler Tape



                                                           Moving all around
                                                           Screaming of the ups and downs
                                                           Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
                                                           And as wheels go round the sunset creeps past the
                                                           Street lamps, cars, chain-links, and concrete
                                                           A window then grows and captures the eye
                                                           And crys out yellow light as it passes it by
                                                           A small black figure sits in front of a box
                                                           Inside a box a rock with the needles on top

                                                           Nothing stops in this land of the chain
                                                           When brains lose not knowing they were part of the
      XERO SAMPLER TAPE (1997)                             game
                                                           And the insides go but the box stays the same
                                                           In shame, shovel up the pieces to the pain
                                                           You could try to hide yourself in the world of pretend
1. Rhinestone                                              When the paper's crumbled up it can't be perfect again

From the top to the bottom                                 From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop                                       Bottom to top I stop
At the core of the rotton                                  At the core of the rotton
Stop and just what I thought                               Stop and just what I thought
The sun has escaped us                                     The sun has escaped us
So I'm bright in the sky                                   So I'm bright in the sky
And I'm far from rapist                                    And I'm far from rapist
Look at why did try                                        Look at why did try

From the top to the bottom                                 From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop                                       Bottom to top I stop
At the core of the rotton                                  At the core of the rotton
Stop and just what I thought                               Stop and just what I thought
The sun has escaped us                                     The sun has escaped us
So I'm bright in the sky                                   So I'm bright in the sky
And I'm far from rapist                                    And I'm far from rapist
Look at why did try                                        Look at why did try

From the thread to the needle, middle to end               In a minute you'll find me
When skies C-ock back and shock that which couldn't        Eyes burn me up
defend                                                     You say you'll never forget me
The rain then sends dripping acidic questions              But the lies have piled up
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust   Yeah I got you got in the act
and rotten dust                                            You better step back
A spot of light floods the floor                           Telling me that
And pours itself upon a world of pretend                   I'm seein right through you
Then the eyes ease open and its dark again
                                                           Yeah I got you got in the act
From the top to the bottom                                 You better step back
Bottom to top I stop                                       Telling me that
At the core of the rotton                                  I'm seein right through you
Stop and just what I thought
The sun has escaped us                                     Yeah I got you got in the act
So I'm bright in the sky                                   You better step back
And I'm far from rapist                                    Telling me that
Look at why did try                                        I'm seein right through you

From the top to the bottom                                 Yeah I got you got in the act
Bottom to top I stop                                       You better step back
At the core of the rotton                                  Telling me that
Stop and just what I thought                               I'm seein right through you
The sun has escaped us
So I'm bright in the sky                                   Yeah I got you got in the act
And I'm far from rapist                                    You better step back
Look at why did try                                        Telling me that
                                                           I'm seein right through you
In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up                                            Yeah I got you got in the act
You say you'll never forget me                             You better step back
But the lies have piled up                                 Telling me that

I'm seein right through you
                                                           Why not
Yeah I got you got in the act                              What a keep
You better step back
Telling me that                                            Why not
I'm seein right through you                                What a keep

In a minute you'll find me                                 Why not
Eyes burn me up                                            What a keep
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up                                 Why not give me what I came to deserve
                                                           Why not give me what I came to believe
In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up                                            Why not give me what I came to deserve
You say you'll never forget me                             Why not give me what I came to believe
But the lies have piled up
                                                           Reading my eyes will say it in many ways
                                                           Losing my pride will save it in many days


2. Reading my eyes
The Microphone Molesta'                                    3. Fuse
The chevy undresser
Stupid dope fresh tight shit resurrector                   Of course you know what a fuse is...
Top gun man mod best of the besta'                         It's a long piece of cord impregnated with gun powder
The living MC peace and resta'                             When you strike a match and light it
Still tested the flexed gunna'                             It burns, fitfully, spiralling to its end
The make funna the appisary make runna'                    At which there is, a little surprise
Make summa cold with rhymes that spit
Get gifted, lifted, deliquent 'wit                         From the planet of Krypton, short suit MCs you'll be
I be the prophet, in my hand                               ripped on
Top it, stop it, felt like rockin when I rock it           You fell off and it's my lyric sheet you slipped on
Locked it down with this perverse verse                    Get gone, spit on mic's made in Hong Kong
Every fuckin' curse I burst to hurt                        Rock on, sing songs mightier than King King
Room crowds physical fitness rhymes                        or Donkey (Kong), you think you want me or want this?
Coke heads couldn't do my lines                            You want some? hold your reputation for Ransom
Decorated like christmas pines with Italian rocks          With these here, handsomely crafted tactics
MCs become silohetes in shock                              To break a snake and see like a cheap prophylactic
                                                           Galactic, space now yeah that grabs attention
Reading my eyes will say it in many ways                   Crack heads nodded like a pest can't even mention
Losing my pride will save it in many days                  Right a pat traps gas tracks in sections
                                                           Kid says this? he'll need witness protection!
Hit the dirt
Because the words I spit will do more than just rip your   Try to see what I
shirt                                                      Can’t be seeing
I'll bitch slap your soul                                  I'll be here
Track the track control
You coming at me?                                          Try to see what I
You can't hack it though                                   Can’t be seeing
So rediculous                                              I'll be here
Watching my crew get sick of this
Wickedness                                                 Yo dig this, (dig this),yo it's the junkyard crooked letter
Pitchin this                                               C-I-entific
Lyrical brichisness                                        Duck us, the ruckus I'll bring stings your eardrum
To crews and cliques                                       Hear one, lalala loose frind me fearsome
Maiden, men, and mistresses                                Opposing troops on my home front shall be gone
This is my life                                            Testing the eight-hundred, eighteenth battalion
The twilight, the fight night                              Shallow the one who's run like rebels
And trying to see nothing but the highlights               Enola gay rhymes kicked the notch up a level
When I write                                               In intensity, send back the tax that you sent to me
These eyes on horizons                                     Blow up your spot with grenades that were meant for
Top of Mike, start cries on to Krylon                      me
Fire on, rude men telekenetically                          MP3 versus R33 MCs, swiss change your gear putting
As aterically beats become a clarity                       shrapnel in the breeze
Feel averity's heroism, and heracy                         We're MCs with enemy companies with my hand full of
And severe every MC I see with Neverity                    lyrics talking 'bout you want these?
                                                           Please! Don’t even speak the name of channels and low
Reading my eyes will say it in many ways                   gadget mic shit put it down like pens
Losing my pride will save it in many days

For my friends and my fam let them dodge it around          Full metal jacket fully auto rhyme pattern
this mic shot through the back of an MCs hand
With the strength that he had a bridge you don't want       And I see what I have, I want you
that close body fields in hand to hand combat               To be with me or Stick n' Move
Battle cats, it's like the sectional speech warfare words   Now I see what I had, and I want you
flashing at cord icy                                        To be with me or Stick n' Move
Can be affording whenever the shots get lit, don't
question my intention when your butt gets kicked            Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,
                                                            Move it, moving all the tunes and you groove it
Try to see what I
Cant be seeing                                              Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,
I'll be here                                                Move it, moving all the tunes and you groove it

Try to see what I                                           Stick it, rock your whole clique and I'm wicked,

                                                            And I see what I have, I want you
Why   wait,   I shouldn't of told myself!                   To be with me or Stick n' Move

Can’t be seeing

4. Stick n’ move
This is how it's done going for the title and crown
Renowned MC's surround as the beat breaks down
In 2 elements clobbin' up those took the best of us,
The M-I see the way it ought to be finessed
and yes, yes am I the one to keep you on your toes?
(most) Definitely in my b-boy pose, the-a electric
pulling you in with a slight twist,
Touch your chin to your chest to the rhythm like this

And I see what I have, I want you
To be with me or Stick n' Move
Now I see what I had, and I want you
To be with me or Stick n' Move

MC's dogging me since the first day I grabbed the mic
Now it's like Sit! Stay!
Cobra path lifestyles I’m kickin'
Stickin' MC's real quick 'cause times tickin'
At the drop of the defense, I let loose the venom
Sendin', a tribal verbal heat up in em'
The ending will come, if you dont grab your family and
run
Apocalyptic rhyme pattern taking shots at the sun
Record industry rule, four-thousand-eighty -one
Question my intentions and your whole world is done
Like wars to Rome, turn your eyeballs into Saturn

  HYBRID THEORY DEMO CD (1999)                               A place for my head

                                                             Shut...up...why

1. Esául (A place for my head)                               Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic
                                                             Hope that some day you'll regret this
                                                             Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time
Riding with the head full of bodies of red                   Adding to the panic in my confine
And when this X is still stuck in my head
But mis-led thinking the things I do                         Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic
Would make you never wanna come back                         Hope that some day you'll regret this
But an on-front attack                                       Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time
So you could never run from that                             Adding to the panic in my confine
Being trapped in this but you
Some that I never wanted to do
But through it all you've got to see
That where I want to be
Is over the pen again                                        2. Super Xero (By myself)
Letting it out of me
In the center of the day                                     What do I do to ignore what's behind me?
In a dream                                                   Do I follow my fate to escape blindly?
Seeing all my thoughts                                       Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams?
Getting lost in between                                      And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Realizing one                                                Do I let it go and try to stand it?
Not the way that it seems                                    Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
And the killing and the killer with a head full of screams   Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness
                                                             Or do I trust none and live in loneliness?
I wanna live in another place                                Because sunlight burns the skin of sleeping men
Where no one can say that I live for them                    I make the right moves but I'm lost within
(Start seeing its not meant to be for me)                    I put on my daily facade but then
I wanna be in the energy, not with the enemy                 I just end up getting hurt again
A place for my head
                                                             By myself (myself)
We're gonna be crushed                                       I ask why, but in my mind
When it all falls apart                                      I find
Knowing no matter how low                                    I can't rely on myself
Hoping that you won't know                                   (myself)
The strain it puts to me, seeing what you've done            I ask why, but in my mind
And consequently I've run away, just hidden again            I find
Within the boundaries of an anguish                          I can't rely on myself
Don't Want me to say this
But you're dragging me down                                  I can't hold on
Lost in the chaos                                            To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
Being tossed around                                          It's all too much to take in
                                                             I can't hold on
Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic               To anything watching everything spin
Hope that some day you'll regret this                        With thoughts of failure sinking in
Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time
Adding to the panic in my confine                            If I
                                                             Turn my back I'm defenseless
Singing again to myself, a head full of hectic               And to give in to fate seems senseless
Hope that some day you'll regret this                        If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll
Everything's the wrong place, the wrong time                 Take from me till everything is gone

Hybrid Theory Demo CD                              Linkin Park Lyrics


If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

By myself (myself)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find
I can't rely on myself
(myself)
I ask why, but in my mind
I find
I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think I've lost so much
I'm so afraid I'm now out of touch
How do you expect I will know what to do
When all I know is what you tell me to

Don't you know
I can't tell you how to make it go
No matter what I do how hard I try
I can't seem to convince myself why
I'm stuck on the outside
[x2]

I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in
[x2]

       HYBRID THEORY EP (1999)                           Mentally moonwalk
                                                         Mixed media slang
                                                         Banging in your boom box verbal violence
                                                         Lyrical stylist
1. Carousel                                              In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
                                                         You can’t tempt me with rhymes that are empty
She can't hide no matter how hard she tries              Rapping to a beat doesn’t make you an emcee
Her secret disguised behind the lies                     With your lack of skill and facility
And at night she cries away her pride                    You’re killing me
With eyes shut tight staring at her inside               And a DJ in the group just for credibility
All her friends know why she can't sleep at night        I heard that some of you are getting help with your
All her family asking is she alright                     rhymes
All she wants to do is get rid of this hell              You’re not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
Well all she's got to do is stop kidding herself         And rapping over rock doesn’t make you a pioneer
She can only fool herself for so long                    Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
She can only fool herself for so long                    But now they’re getting randomly mixed and matched
She can only fool herself for so long                    up
I'm too weak to face me                                  All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
(She can only fool herself)                              So how does it stack up? None of it’s real
                                                         You want to be an emcee you’ve got to study the skill
I never know just why you run so far away
far away from me                                         Who can rock a rhyme like this?
I never know just why you run so far away                Bring it to you every time like this?
far away from me                                         Who can rock a rhyme like this?
                                                         Step, step up, step, step up
When it comes to how to live his life he can't be told
Says he got everything under control                     So you pick up a pen and write yourself a new identity
Thinks he knows he's not a problem he's stuck with       But mentally you don’t have the hip hop energy
But in reality it would be a problem to just quit        With a tendency to make up stories
An addict and he can't hold the reigns                   Sounding like the only hip hop you’ve heard is top 40
The pain is worse cause his friends have it the same     And your record company is completely missing it
Tries to slow down the problem he's got                  All the kids are dissing it for not being legitimate
But can't get off the carousel until he makes it stop    So in a battle you can't hack it

Who can rock a rhyme like this?                            Against the state of being

Where should I start                                       Ignoring and drinking musical gas field euphoria
Disjointed heart                                           The sound pounds to make the dead flush
I’ve got no commitment                                     To have you a head rush with red thoughts and said
To my own flesh and blood                                  stuff
Left all alone
Far from my home
No one to hear me, to heal my ill heart, I

Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
                                                            Cut myself free willingly
Akira, put a kink in the backbones of clones with           Stop just what’s killing me
microphones
Never satisfy my rhyme jones                                Cut myself free willingly
Sprayin bright day over what you might say                  Stop just what’s killing me
Blood type krylon
Technicolor type A                                          Cut myself free willingly
On highways ripe with road rage I'm patient to win          Stop just what’s killing me
The cage and the tin to bounce all around
In surround sound devouring the scene                       I feel it everyday
Subliminal gangrene paintings                               I feel I made my way
Overall the same things sing songs karaoke copy             I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
madness                                                     Swallowing me
Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention                         It can’t be frightening if you’ve never felt it
Write rhymes at ease while the tracks stand at              Once it’s been dealt with you feel like you’ve been
attention (Attention)                                       touched by something angelic
Meant to put you away with the pencil                       And then melted down into a pool of peace
Pistol, official, 16 line rhyme missile                     Cease to be the animal you used to be
While you risk it all, I pick out of your flaws             Remove the broken parts you know were wrong
Spin, blah blah blah blah                                   And feel the karma when the problem’s all gone
You can say you saw                                         And then you start to see another piece of yourself that
                                                            you can’t let be
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  And that reason’ll last fight to free yourself
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out               Take it to the depths of the bottom of the well
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  And now you know you can choose to lose the part in
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out               your heart
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  Where your insides bruise
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out               You can live if you’re willing to
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  Put a stop to just what’s killing you
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
                                                            Cut myself free willingly
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  Stop just what’s killing me
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  Cut myself free willingly
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out               Stop just what’s killing me
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out               Cut myself free willingly
It's high voltage you cant shake the shock                  Stop just what’s killing me
Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out
                                                            Cut myself free willingly
                                                            Stop just what’s killing me

                                                            I feel it everyday
6. Part of me                                               I feel I made my way
After this song there is static for awhile and eventually   I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
a secret instrumental part.                                 Swallowing me

Part of me won’t go away                                    (Alive in me, inside of me, a part of me screams away
Everyday reminded how much I hate it                        silently
Weighted against the consequences                           This part of me won’t go away, part of me won’t go
Can’t live without it so it’s senseless                     away
Wanna cut it out of my soul                                 Everywhere I look around I see how everyone ought to
And just live with a gaping hole                            be
Take control of my life                                     Every time I see myself there’s always something
And wash out all the burnt taste                            wrong with me
I made the problems in the first place                      Everywhere I look around I see how everyone ought to
Hang my head low ‘cause it’s part of me                     be
Ya hardly see right next to the heart of me                 Every time I see myself there’s always something
Heard of me the routine scar                                wrong with me)
New cuts cover where the old ones are
And now I’m sick of this                                    I feel it everyday
I can’t stand the sandpaper thoughts that grade away        I feel I made my way
on my sanity                                                I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
I rather not even be then the man that’s staring in the     Swallowing me
mirror through me
                                                            I feel it everyday
Cut myself free willingly                                   I feel I made my way
Stop just what’s killing me                                 I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside

                                                          It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within
                                                          I feel the light betray me
1. Papercut                                               It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within
                                                          It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within
Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here’s not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia’s all I got left                                 2. One step closer
I don’t know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed / but
I know just what it feels like                            I cannot take this anymore
To have a voice in the back of my head                    I'm saying everything I've said before
It’s like a face that I hold inside                       All these words they make no sense
A face that awakes when I close my eyes                   I find bliss in ignorance
A face watches every time I lie                           Less I hear the less you'll say
A face that laughs every time I fall                      But you'll find that out anyway
(And watches everything)                                  Just like before...
So I know that when it’s time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me / right beneath my     Everything you say to me
skin                                                      Takes me one step closer to the edge
It’s like I’m / paranoid lookin’ over my back             And I'm about to break
It’s like a / whirlwind inside of my head                 I need a little room to breathe
It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within          Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin        And I'm about to break
I know I’ve got a face in me
points out all the mistakes to me                         I find the answers aren't so clear
You’ve got a face on the inside too and                   Wish I could find a way to disappear
Your paranoia’s probably worse                            All these thoughts they make no sense
I don’t know what set me off first but I know what I      I find bliss in ignorance
can’t stand                                               Nothing seems to go away
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is             Over and over again
I can’t add up to what you can but                        Just like before...
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when they close their eyes             Everything you say to me
A face watches every time they lie                        Takes me one step closer to the edge
A face that laughs every time they fall                   And I'm about to break
(And watches everything)                                  I need a little room to breathe
So you know that when it’s time to sink or swim           Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
That the face inside is watching you too / right inside   And I'm about to break
your skin                                                 Everything you say to me
It’s like I’m / paranoid lookin’ over my back             Takes me one step closer to the edge
It’s like a / whirlwind inside of my head                 And I'm about to break
It’s like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within          I need a little room to breathe
It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin        Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
                                                          And I'm about to break
It’s   like I’m / paranoid lookin’ over my back           Break break break break break
It’s   like a / whirlwind inside of my head
It’s   like I / can’t stop what I’m hearing within        shut   up   when I'm talking to you
It’s   like the face inside is right beneath my skin      shut   up   shut up shut up
                                                          shut   up   when I'm talking to you
the face inside is right beneath my skin                  shut   up   shut up shut up shut up

I’m about to break                                      I can't wait to see tomorrow
                                                        No, no matter how far we've come I
Everything you say to me                                I can't wait to see tomorrow
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break                                  With you
I need a little room to breathe                         You, now I see, keeping everything inside
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge                   with you
And I'm about to break                                  You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes
Everything you say to me                                With you
Takes me one step closer to the edge                    You, now I see, keeping everything inside
And I'm about to break                                  with you
I need a little room to breathe                         You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to
break

                                                        Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
3. With you                                             Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
                                                        Cover up your face / You can’t run the race
I woke up in a dream today                              The pace is too fast / You just won't last
To the cold of the static and put my cold feet on the
floor                                                   You love the way I look at you
Forgot all about yesterday                              While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not          through
anymore                                                 You take away if I give in
A little taste of hypocrisy                             My life
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react   My pride is broken
Even though you're so close to me
You're still so distant                                 You like to think you’re never wrong
And I can't bring you back                              (You live what you’ve learned)
                                                        You have to act like you’re someone
It's true the way I feel                                (You live what you’ve learned)
Was promised by your face                               You want someone to hurt like you
The sound of your voice                                 (You live what you’ve learned)
Painted on my memories                                  You want to share what you’ve been through
Even if you're not with me                              (You live what you’ve learned)
I'm with you
                                                        You love the things I say I’ll do
You, now I see, keeping everything inside               The way I’ll hurt myself again just to get back at you
with you                                                You take away when I give in / my life
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes               My pride is broken

I hit you and you hit me back                           You like to think you’re never wrong
We fall to the floor the rest of the day stands still   (You live what you’ve learned)
Fine line between this and that                         You want to act like you’re someone
When things go wrong I pretend the past isn't real      (You live what you’ve learned)
I'm trapped in this memory                              You want someone to hurt like you
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react   (You live what you’ve learned)
So even though you're close to me                       You want to share what you’ve been through
You're still so distant                                 (You live what you’ve learned)
And I can't bring you back
                                                        Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
It's true the way I feel                                Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame

No, no matter how far we've come                        You want to share what you’ve been through

(You live what you’ve learned)                            6. Runaway
You like to think you’re never wrong / forfeit the game
(You live what you’ve learned)                            Graffiti decorations
You want to act like you’re someone / forfeit the game    Under a sky of dust
(You live what you’ve learned)                            A constant wave of tension
You want someone to hurt like you / forfeit the game      On top of broken trust
(You live what you’ve learned)                            The lessons that you taught me
You want to share what you’ve been through                I learn were never true
(You live what you’ve learned)                            Now I find myself in question
                                                          (They point the finger at me again)
                                                          Guilty by association
                                                          (You point the finger at me again)

5. Crawling                                               I wanna run away
                                                          Never say goodbye
crawling in my skin                                       I wanna know the truth
these wounds they will not heal                           Instead of wondering why
fear is how I fall                                        I wanna know the answers
confusing what is real                                    No more lies
                                                          I wanna shut the door
                                                          And open up my mind
there's something inside me that pulls beneath the
surface                                                   Paper bags and angry voices
consuming/confusing                                       Under a sky of dust
this lack of self-control I fear is never ending          Another wave of tension
controlling/I can't seem                                  Has more than filled me up
                                                          All my talk of taking action
                                                          These words were never true
to find myself again                                      Now I find myself in question
my walls are closing in                                   (They point the finger at me again)
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that     Guilty by association
there's just too much pressure to take)                   (You point the finger at me again)
I've felt this way before
so insecure                                               I wanna run away
                                                          Never say goodbye
crawling in my skin                                       I wanna know the truth
these wounds they will not heal                           Instead of wondering why

                                                          I wanna shut the door
discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me           And open up my mind
distracting/reacting
against my will I stand beside my own reflection          I'm gonna run away and never say goodbye
it's haunting how I can't seem...                         (gonna run away gonna run away gonna run away
                                                          gonna run away)

                                                          I wanna run away
                                                          and open up my mind

I wanna run away
and open up my mind                                      Don’t you (know)
                                                         I can’t tell you how to make it (go)
                                                         No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
                                                         I can’t seem to convince myself (why)
                                                         I’m stuck on the outside
7. By myself
                                                          I can’t hold on
What do I do to ignore them behind me?                   To what I want when I’m stretched so thin
Do I follow my instincts blindly?                        It’s all too much to take in
Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams               I can’t hold on
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?          To anything watching everything spin
Do I / sit here and try to stand it?                     With thoughts of failure sinking in
Or do I / try to catch them red - handed?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,             I can’t hold on
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?             To what I want when I’m stretched so thin
Because I can’t hold on / when I’m stretched so thin     It’s all too much to take in
I make the right moves but I’m lost within               I can’t hold on
I put on my daily façade but then                        To anything watching everything spin
I just end up getting hurt again                         With thoughts of failure sinking...

by myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can’t rely on myself
                                                         8. In the end
[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind                                (It starts with)
I find I can’t rely on myself                            One thing / I don’t know why
                                                         It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
I can’t hold on                                          Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To what I want when I’m stretched so thin                To explain in due time
It’s all too much to take in                             All I know
I can’t hold on                                          time is a valuable thing
To anything watching everything spin                     Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
With thoughts of failure sinking in                      Watch it count down to the end of the day
                                                         The clock ticks life away
If I                                                     It’s so unreal
Turn my back I’m defenseless                             Didn’t look out below
And to go blindly seems senseless                        Watch the time go right out the window
If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then they’ll   Trying to hold on / but didn’t even know
Take from me ‘till everything is gone                    Wasted it all just to
If I let them go I’ll be outdone                         Watch you go
But if I try to catch them I’ll be outrun                I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all
If I’m killed by the questions like a cancer             fell apart
Then I’ll be buried in the silence of the answer         What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory /
                                                         of a time when I tried
[by myself]                                              so hard
[myself]
I ask why, but in     my mind                            And got so far
I find I can’t rely   on myself                          But in the end
[myself]                                                 It doesn't even matter
I ask why, but in     my mind                            I had to fall
I find I can’t rely   on myself                          To lose it all
                                                         But in the end
I can’t hold on                                          It doesn't even matter
To what I want when I’m stretched so thin
It’s all too much to take in                             One thing / I don’t know why
I can’t hold on                                          It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
To anything watching everything spin                     Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
With thoughts of failure sinking in                      To remind myself how
                                                         I tried so hard
How do you think / I’ve lost so much                     In spite of the way you were mocking me
I’m so afraid / I’m out of touch                         Acting like I was part of your property
How do you expect / I will know what to do               Remembering all the times you fought with me
When all I know / Is what you tell me to                 I’m surprised it got so (far)
Don’t you (know)                                         Things aren’t the way they were before
I can’t tell you how to make it (go)                     You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)                    Not that you knew me back then
I can’t seem to convince myself (why)                    But it all comes back to me
I’m stuck on the outside                                 In the end

I tried so hard                                           I want to be in another place

Moon sits in the sky / in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun                       From the top to the bottom
The sun doesn't give / light to the moon assuming         Bottom to top I stop
The moon’s going to owe it one                            At the core I’ve forgotten
It makes me think of how you act to me / You do           In the middle of my thoughts
favours and then rapidly / You just                       Taken far from my safety
Turn around and start asking me / about                   The picture is there
Things you want back from me                              The memory won’t escape me
I’m sick of the tension / sick of the hunger              But why should I care
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed                   From the top to the bottom
While I find a place to rest                              Bottom to top I stop
                                                          At the core I’ve forgotten
I want to be in another place                             In the middle of my thoughts
I hate when you say you don’t understand                  Taken far from my safety
(You’ll see it's not meant to be)                         The picture is there
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy            The memory won’t escape me
A place for my head                                       But why should I care

Maybe someday I’ll be just like you / and                 There’s a place so dark you can’t see the end
Step on people like you do and / Run                      (Skies cock back) and shock that which can’t defend
Away the people I thought I knew                          The rain then sends dripping / an acidic question
I remember back then who you were                         Forcefully, the power of suggestion
You used to be calm / used to be strong                   Then with the eyes shut / looking though the rust and
Used to be generous / but you should’ve known / That      rot
you’d                                                     And dust / a spot of light floods the floor
Wear out your welcome / now you see                       And pours over the rusted world of pretend
How quiet it is / all alone / I’m so                      The eyes ease open and its dark again
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this                    From the top to the bottom
Find another place / to feed your greed                   Bottom to top I stop
While / I find a place to rest / I’m so                   At the core I’ve forgotten
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger                  In the middle of my thoughts

Taken far from my safety                                 I see it right through you
The picture is there
The memory won’t escape me                               Now you got me caught in the act
But why should I care                                    You bring the thought back
                                                         I’m telling you that
In the memory you’ll find me                             I see it right through you
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly                          In the memory you’ll find me
Until the sun rises up                                   Eyes burning up
                                                         The darkness holding me tightly
Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs       Until the sun rises up
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind         In the memory, you will find me
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete                    Eyes burning up
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats      The darkness holding me tightly
On down the street till the wind is gone                 Until the sun rises up
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paper’s crumpled up it can’t be perfect again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop

At the core I’ve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts                             Instrumental song
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory won’t escape me
But why should I care

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop                                     I’ve lied / to you
At the core I’ve forgotten                               The same way that I always do
In the middle of my thoughts                             This is / the last smile
Taken far from my safety                                 That I’ll fake for the sake of being with you
The picture is there
The memory won’t escape me                               Everything falls apart / even the people who never
But why should I care                                    frown / eventually break down
                                                         The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
In the memory you’ll find me                             Everything has to end / you’ll soon find we’re out of
Eyes burning up                                          time left / to watch it all unwind
The darkness holding me tightly                          The sacrifice is never knowing
Until the sun rises up                                   Why I never walked away
                                                         Why I played myself this way
Now you got me caught in the act                         Now I see your testing me pushes me away
You bring the thought back                               Why I never walked away
I’m telling you that                                     Why I played myself this way
I see it right through you                               Now I see your testing me pushes me away
                                                         I’ve tried / like you
Now you got me caught in the act                         To do everything you wanted too
You bring the thought back                               This is / the last time
I’m telling you that                                     I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you
I see it right through you
                                                         Everything falls apart / even the people who never
Now you got me caught in the act                         frown / eventually break down
You bring the thought back                               The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
I’m telling you that                                     Everything has to end / you’ll soon find we’re out of
I see it right through you                               time left / to watch it all unwind
                                                         The sacrifice is never knowing
Now you got me caught in the act                         Why I never walked away
You bring the thought back                               Why I played myself this way
I’m telling you that                                     Now I see your testing me pushes me away
I see it right through you                               Why I never walked away
                                                         Why I played myself this way
Now you got me caught in the act                         Now I see your testing me pushes me away
You bring the thought back
I’m telling you that                                     Were all out of time / this is how we learn how it all
I see it right through you                               unwinds
                                                         The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Now you got me caught in the act                         Were all out of time / this is how we learn how it all
You bring the thought back                               unwinds
I’m telling you that                                     The sacrifice is never knowing why...

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
pushes me away.

                                                         Hey yo when this first started off it was just Linkin
You love the way, I look at you                          Park...
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me     Then in the middle came Motion Man...
through                                                  And at the end of it all it was Kutmasta Kut wit a remix
You take away if I give in                               [echo]
My life, my pride, is broken
                                                         one thing I don't know why
You like to think you're never wrong                     it doesn't even matter how hard you try
(You like to think you're never wrong)                   keep that in mind I designed this rhyme when I was
You have to act like you're someone                      obsessed with time
(You have to act like you're someone)                    all I know, time was just slipping way
You want someone to hurt like you                        and I watched it count down till the end of the day
(You want someone to hurt like you)                      watched it watch me and the words that I say
You wanna share what you've been through                 the echo of the clock rhythm in my veins
(You live what you've learned)                           I know that I didn't look out below
Learned, learned, learned, learned, learned(echo fade)   and I watched the time go right out the window
                                                         trying to grab hold, trying not to watch
You love the things, I say I'll do                       I wasted it all on the hands of the clock
The way I hurt myself again, just to get back at you     but in the end no matter what I pretend
You take away, when I give in                            the journey is more important than the end or the start
My life, my pride, is broken                             and what it meant to me will eventually be
                                                         a memory of the time when I tried so hard
You like to think you're never wrong
(You like to think you're never wrong)                   I tried so hard
You have to act like you're someone                      and got so far
(You have to act like you're someone)                    but in the end
You want someone to hurt like you                        it doesn’t even matter
(You want someone to hurt like you)                      I had to fall
You wanna share what you've been through                 to lose it all

but in the end                                                4. [Chali]
it doesn’t even matter

yo one thing, one thing I don't know why                      What’s up evich? Glad you could keep me uhh detailed
it doesn't even matter how hard you try                       Please enter your pa..
keep that in mind I designed this rhyme to explain the
due time                                                      First message
all I know, time to so-socialize like the host of the party   Yo Mike; this is Chali 2na, what’s up man?
all for shake and made eye contact                            I'm just trying to catch up witch ya so we can go on
party control showing all that                                here and get this song on the roll, pop a d... Ha-ha.
northeast, southwest coast                                    Call me back
stand out the window, no opportunity to mingle
I tried to show her, if you could just sense a middle
disorder
I brought you back of the thing                               5. Frgt/10
like the imaginary man of your dreams
well, you would always seem to make it worth it               (featuring Alchemist, Chali 2na)
a sleek skin I never nerved you
you felt lovin, I never applied a room                        From the top to the bottom
without bringing the plan                                     Bottom to top I stop
by any means and means of leaving you teens,                  At the core I've forgotten
of all those teenage scenes, I tried so hard                  In the middle of my thoughts
                                                              Taken far from my safety
I tried so hard                                               The picture's there
and got so far                                                The memory won't escape me
but in the end
it doesn’t even matter                                        [Mike]
I had to fall                                                 We're stuck in a place so dark, you could hardly see
to lose it all                                                A manner of matter that splits with the words I breathe
but in the end                                                And as the rain drips acidic questions around me
it doesn’t even matter                                        I block out the sight of the powers that be
                                                              Duck away into the darkness, times up
Linkin park, remix, Mo Mo Mo Motion Man                       I wind up in a rusted world with eyes shut
Linkin park, in the end, Kutmasta Kutmasta Kut                So tight that it blurs into the world of pretend
Kutmasta Kurt                                                 And the eyes ease open and it's dark again
Linkin park, remix, Mo Mo Motion Man
Linkin park, in the end, Kutmasta Kurt                        From the top to the bottom
                                                              Bottom to top I stop
one thing I don't know how                                    At the core I've forgotten
it doesn't even matter when you look at it now                In the middle of my thoughts
because when I designed this rhyme I was scared of it         Taken far from my safety
all                                                           The picture's there
scared to fall, I hadn't even tried to crawl                  The memory won't escape me
and I was forced to run, with you mocking me                  But why should I care
stopping me, back stabbing me constantly
remembering all those times you fought with me                [Chali 2na]
watch the clock now chop full of hypocrisy                    In the memory you'll find me
and now your mouth wishes it could inhale                     Eyes burning up
every single little thing you said and make it expel          The darkness holding me tightly
every single word you sputter just to get your piece,         Until the sun rises up
but it really doesn't matter to me
because from the start to the end no matter what I            [Mike]
pretend                                                       Listen to the sound, dizzy from the ups and downs
the journey is more important than the end or the start       And nauseated by the polluted rock that's all around
and what it meant to me will eventually be                    Watchin the wheels of cars that pass
a memory of the time when I tried so hard                     I look past to the last of the light and the long shadows
                                                              it casts
I tried so hard                                               A window grows and captures the eye
and got so far                                                And cries out yellow light as it passes me by
but in the end                                                And a young, shadowy figure sits in front of a box
it doesn’t even matter                                        Inside a building of rocks with antennas on top
I had to fall                                                 Now, nothing can stop in this land of the pain
to lose it all                                                The same lose, not knowing they were part of the game
but in the end                                                And while the insides change, the box stays the same
it doesn’t even matter..                                      And the figure inside could bear anybody's name
in the end                                                    The memories I keep are from a time like then
                                                              I put on my paper so I could come back to them
                                                              Someday I’m hopin to close my eyes and pretend
                                                              That this crumpled up paper can be perfect again

From the top to the bottom bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten                                [Chester]
In the middle of my thoughts                              The sacrifice is never knowing
Taken far from my safety                                  Why I stayed with you
The picture's there                                       Just push away
The memory won't escape me                                No matter what you see

There's nothing there to see                              There's nothing left but, to turn and face you
Nothing but my own mistakes                               When I look into your eyes, there's nothing there to see

I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night,
shining with the light from the sun
the sun doesn’t give light to the moon
assuming the moons gonna owe it one
and makes think of how you act to me
                                                               9. H! Vltg3
you do favors that rapidly                                     (featuring Evidence, DJ Babu, Pharoahe Monch)
you just turn around and start asking me about things
you want back from me                                          Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes....
I’m sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
sick of you acting like I owe you this                         Hybrid
find another place to feed your greed                          I've been diggin in crates ever since I was livin in space
while I find a place to rest                                   Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
I’m sick of the tension, sick of the hunger                    I mastered numerology, big band theology, performed
sick of you acting like I owe you this                         lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
find another place to feed your greed                          Invented the mic to so I can start blessin it
while I find a place to rest.                                  Chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an

[Chester]                                                      Many men have tried to shake us
I wanna be in another place                                    But I twist mic chords like double helixes to show them
I hate when you say you don’t understand                       what I'm made of
I wanna be in the energy, right with the enemy                 I buckle knees like leg braces
a place for my head.                                           cast a spell of instrumentalist on all of you MC's who
I wanna, I wanna, I wanna, I wanna                             hate us
                                                               So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry

I wanna be in another place                                    I stomp **** with or without an accomplice
I hate when you say you don’t understand                       And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this
I wanna be in the energy, right with the enemy

Comin at you from every side                              And put my cold feet on the floor

Who's the man, the man in your hand over your land        A little taste of hypocrisy
Roving over man's bolding when he's jammin your           And I'm left in the wake of the mistake
plans ova                                                 Slow to react
I am vics clorousos, the most ferocious                   Even though you're so close to me
When I spy my third eye, it's extremely high voltage      You're still so distant, and I can't bring you back
That's why I need ruby quartz glasses, cause when I
glance at the chest                                       It's true, the way I feel
Then I might blast the masses                             Was promised by your face
Subliminals transmitted through piano                     The sound of your voice
Integrated in flow, calculated in nano                    Painted on my memories
My IU skills are when I mean plea sees the rhyme          Even if you're not with me
I hear when I bleed when I proceed through time           I'm with you
I walk through the walls and the inanimate obstacles      (You, now I see, keeping everything inside)
While educed to the reduction of cells and molecules      With you

High voltage                                              The rest of the day stands still

(No)                                                       Whenever I call nobody's responding at all
No I'm not upset, no I'm not angry                         But I don't who I could trust they screaming my name
I know love is love and love sometimes, it doesn't pay     I need somebody to help me out of the flame
me                                                         all I’m tryin to do is just master me all I want to do is

I'm never without you, I'll always be with you             but something keeps talking to me consciously
You'll never forget me, I'm keeping you with me            responsibly it keeps haunting me
(No)                                                       From dusk till dawn
I wont let you take me to the end of my row                Everything has something for ya
Or keep burning and torching my soul                       That voice inside of your head got to projected,

No I'm not your puppet                                     cold sweat.
And no, no, no, I wont let you go                          Shining on your face exposing your purpose and if I
                                                           ripped off your skin I’d probably find another verse
No, no matter how far we've come                           Its nothin worse than trying to bring yourself up back
I can't wait to see tomorrow                               from the dead
No matter how far we've come                               so I advise you listen to that voice in the back of your
I, I can't wait to see tomorrow                            head

(You, now   I see, even when I close my eyes)              The sun goes down
With you                                                   I feel the light betray me [3x]
(You, now   I see, keeping everything inside)

                                                           This constant apprehension still giving me away
13. PPr:Kut                                                The lessons I've forgotten
                                                           Inside of all I've learned
Why does it feel like night today                          Now I find myself in question
Something in here’s not right today                        (point the finger at me again)
Why I am so uptight today                                  Guilty by association
Paranoia’s all I got left                                  (point the finger at me again)
I don't know what stressed me first                        I wanna runaway
Or how the pressure was fed                                (I wanna runaway)
But I know just what it feels like to                      I wanna know the truth
have a voice in the back of my head                        (I wanna know the truth)
Like a face that I hold inside                             I wanna know the answers
A face that awakes when I close my eyes                    (I wanna know the answers)
Face that watches everytime I lie                          I wanna shut the door
Face that laughs everytime I fall                          (And open up my mind)
and watches everything                                     And open up my mind
So I know that when its time to sink or swim               (And open up my mind)
The face inside is hearing me right beneath my skin
                                                           Paper bags and angry voices under a sky of grey
[CHORUS]                                                   This constant apprehension won't seem to go away
Its like I’m paranoid looking over my back                 All my talk of starting over
Its like a whirlwind inside of my head                     These words were never true
Its like I can't stop what I’m hearing within              Now I find myself in question
Its like the face inside is right beneath my skin          (point the finger at me again)
                                                           Guilty by association
hey yo, here we go again with the pain I feel isn't real   (point the finger at me again)
but in my mind
But I find myself in places with names, but not faces      I wanna runaway
My memory races at speeds hundred degrees                  (I wanna runaway)
My soul (it bleeds?) devil must’ve planted the seed        I wanna know the truth
Now it feels like my backs against the wall, I'm taking    (I wanna know the truth)
the fall                                                   I wanna know the answers

missed                                                    Do I follow my instincts blindly
And I                                                     Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams
Take back all the things I said to make you feel like     And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening
that                                                      Do I sit here and try to stand it
                                                          Or do I try to catch them red-handed
And I, give it all away                                   Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness
Just to have somewhere to go to                           Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness
Give it all away                                          Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
To have someone to come home to                           I make the right moves but I'm lost within

I put on my daily facade but then                    Don't you (know)
I just end up getting hurt again                     I cant tell you how to make it (go)

By myself (myself)                                   I cant seem to convince myself (why)
I ask why                                            I'm stuck on the outside
But in my mind I find
I can't rely on myself (myself)
I ask why
But in my mind I find
I cant rely on myself

I cant look past                                     Let's try (being scratched)
(Its starting over again)                            Let's try something else.
                                                     Folks we have a very special guest for you tonight
If I turn my back I'm defenseless                    (echo fade)
And to go blindly seems senseless                    BREAK IT DOWN! Cut it up! Using the waves of sound.
If I hide my pride and let it all go on              A true master paralyzes his opponent leaving him
Then they'll take from me till everything is gone    vulnerable to attack...
If I let them go I'll be outdone                     Mr. Hahn..
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer         (Let's hear it for the great Mr. Hahn)
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer     And now for a lesson in r-r-rhythm m-m-m-
                                                     management...
By myself (myself)                                   L-l-l-let's begin
I ask why                                            All right now, wasn't that fun?
But in my mind I find                                Let's try something else...
I can't rely on myself (myself)
I ask why
But in my mind I find
I cant rely on myself
I cant look around

Don't you(being said repeatedly in the background)   I cannot take this anymore
Don't you (know)                                     Saying everything I've said before
I cant tell you how to make it (go)                  All these words, they make no sense
No mater what I do, how hard I (try)                 I found bliss in ignorance
I cant seem to convince myself (why)                 Less I hear, the less you say
I'm stuck on the outside                             But you'll find that out anyway
Don't you (know)
I cant tell you how to make it (go)                  I find the answers aren't so clear
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)                Wish I could find a way to disappear
I cant seem to convince myself (why)                 All these thoughts, they make no sense
I'm stuck on the outside                             I found bliss in ignorance
Don't you (know)                                     Nothing seems to go away
I cant tell you how to make it (go)                  Over and over again
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)                Over and over again
I cant seem to convince myself (why)                 Over and over again
I'm stuck on the outside                             Over and over again
Don't you (know)                                     Over and over again
I cant tell you how to make it (go)                  Just like before...
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I cant seem to convince myself (why)                 Everything you say to me
I'm stuck on the outside                             And I'm about to break!
Don't you (know)                                     I need a little room to breathe
I cant tell you how to make it (go)                  I'm about to break!
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)                Everything you say to me

And I'm about to
Break! [echo]                                              There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the
                                                           surface
These are the places where I can feel                      Consuming, confusing
Torn from my body, my flesh it peels                       This lack of self-control I fear is never ending
During this ride, we can cut up what we like               Controlling, I cant seem
Waiting alone, I cannot resist                             To find myself again
Feeling this hate I have never missed                      My walls are closing in
Please someone give me a reason to rip off my face         (Without a sense of confidence, and I’m convinced that
Blood is a pouring                                         there’s just too much pressure to take)
                                                           I've felt this way before, so insecure...

                                                           Crawling in my skin
Shut up when I'm talking to you!                           These wounds, they will not heal
                                                           Fear is how I fall
Shut up!                                                   Confusing what is real

                                                           Discomfort endlessly as pulled itself upon me
Shut up when I'm talking to you!                           Distracting, reacting
                                                           Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
Shut up!                                                   Its haunting how I cant seem
Blood is pouring! [x3]                                     To find myself again
                                                           My walls are closing in

Crawling in my skin
Without a sense of confidence, confidence, confidence...
Consuming, confusing
Crawling in my skin
Without a sense of confidence and I’m convinced that
there’s just too much pressure to take
There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the
surface

I'm crawling in my skin
(Crawling in my skin)
These wounds they will not heal
(These wounds they will not heal)
Fear is how I fall
(Fear is how I fall)
Confusing, confusing what is real
Confusing what is real...

Yo
I woke up in a dream today                              Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
To the cold of the static and put my cold feet on the   Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
floor                                                   Cover up your face / You can't run the race
Forgot all about yesterday                              The pace is too fast / You just can't last
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not          [x2]
anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy                             You love the way I look at you
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react   While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me
Even though you're so close to me                       through
You're still so distant                                 You take away if I give in
And I can't bring you back                              My life
                                                        My pride is broken
It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face                               You like to think you're never wrong
The sound of your voice                                 (You live what you learn)
Painted on my memories                                  You want to act like you're someone
Even if you're not with me                              (You live what you learn)
I'm with you                                            You want someone to hurt like you
                                                        (You live what you learn)
You, now I see, keeping everything inside               You want to share what you've been through
with you                                                (You live what you learn)
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes
                                                        You love the things I say I'll do
I hit you and you hit me back                           The way I'll hurt myself again just to get back at you
We fall to the floor the rest of the day stands still   You take away when I give in
Fine line between this and that                         My life
When things go wrong I pretend the past isn't real      My pride is broken
I'm trapped in this memory
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react   You like to think you're never wrong
So even though you're close to me                       (You live what you learn)
You're still so distant                                 You want to act like you're someone
And I can't bring you back                              (You live what you learn)
                                                        You want someone to hurt like you
It's true the way I feel                                (You live what you learn)
Was promised by your face                               You want to share what you've been through
The sound of your voice                                 (You live what you learn)
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me                              Forfeit the game / Before somebody else

Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame   You'd lose your grip
Cover up your face / You can't run the race            Probably eventually flip
The pace is too fast / You just can't last             So let it be known
[x2]                                                   The only reason that we do this
                                                       Is so you can pick it up
You like to think you're never wrong                   And just bang your head to it
(You live what you learn)                              While emcees fight to see who could be the commonest
You want to act like you're someone                    We float overhead like a space odyssey monolith
(You live what you learn)                              Overseeing the game
You want someone to hurt like you                      Over being part of the same
(You live what you learn)                              Old thing it's all gonna change
You want to share what you've been through             In a hurricane of darkness and pain
(You live what you learn)                              In acidic rain and promises you won't do it again
                                                       Meanwhile I just grip my mic
You like to think you're never wrong                   And hope me and my team make it through alright
(Forfeit the game)                                     Because say what you will
(You live what you learn)                              And say what you might
You want to act like you're someone                    But don't ignore who it's for
(Forfeit the game)                                     At the end of the night
(You live what you learn)
You want someone to hurt like you                      Because this is dedicated to the kids
(Forfeit the game)                                     Dedicated to wherever music lives
(You live what you learn)                              Dedicated to those tired of the same old same
You want to share what you've been through             And dedicated to the people advancing the game
(Forfeit the game)                                     What's real is the kids who know that something's
(You live what you learn)                              wrong
                                                       What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
                                                       What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
                                                       Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun
4. Dedicated (demo 1999)                               Pulling me close the shadow is warm inside
                                                       This is where I feel at home this is my place to hide
I have a dream                                         Pulling me close the shadow is warm inside
Of a scene between the green hills                     This is where I feel at home this is my place to hide
Clouds pull away and the sunlight's revealed
People don't talk about keeping it real                This is dedicated to the kids
It's understood that they actually will                Dedicated to wherever music lives
And intoxicated and stimulated emcees                  Dedicated to those tired of the same old same
Staring in the trees                                   And dedicated to the people advancing the game
Paranoid                                               What's real is the kids who know that something's
Are gone in the breeze                                 wrong
Watch them flee                                        What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
Hip hop heads                                          What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
Take a walk with me                                    Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun
And what you'll see is a land
Where the sand's made of crushed up wax                This is dedicated to the kids
And the sky beyond you is krylon blue                  Dedicated to wherever music lives
And everybody speaks in a dialect of rhyme             Dedicated to those tired of the same old same
Emcees have left materialism behind them               And dedicated to the people advancing the game
Meanwhile I just grip my mic                           What's real everybody who doesn't feel safe
And hope me and my team make it through alright        What's real everybody who knows they're out of place
Because say what you will                              What's real everybody with nowhere to run
And say what you might                                 Who will hide from the shadows waiting for the sun?
But don't ignore who it's for
At the end of the night

Because this is dedicated to the kids
Dedicated to wherever music lives                      5. High voltage (live)
Dedicated to those tired of the same old same
And dedicated to the people advancing the game         Lyric not available
What's real is the kids who know that something's
wrong
What's real is the kids who think they don't belong
What's real is the kids who have nowhere to run
Who are hiding in the shadows waiting for the sun
                                                       6. My december

I've seen a lot of shit                                This is my December
I've talked to a bum out on sunset strip               This is my time of the year
He asked me how would you feel                         This is my December
If everybody acted like you didn't exist               This is all so clear

This is my December                To have someone
This is my snow covered home       To come home to
This is my December
This is me alone                   And I give it all away
                                   Just to have somewhere
And I                              To go to
Just wish that                     Give it all away
I didn't feel                      To have someone
Like there was                     To come home to
Something I missed
And I
Take back all
The things I said
To make you
Feel like that
And I
Just wish that
I didn't feel
Like there was
Something I missed
And I
Take back all the
Things I said to you

And I give it all away
Just to have somewhere
To go to
Give it all away
To have someone
To come home to

This is my December
These are my snow covered dreams
This is me pretending
This is all I need

And I
Just wish that
I didn't feel
Like there was
Something I missed
And I
Take back all
The things I said
To make you feel like that
And I
Just wish that
I didn't feel
Like there was
Something I missed
And I
Take back all the things
I said to you

And I give it all away
Just to have
Somewhere to go to
Give it all away
To have someone
To come home to

This is my December
This is my time of the year
This is my December
This is all so clear

And I give it all away
Just to have somewhere
To go to
Give it all away

                                                       Forget our memories

                                                       Take all your faithlessness with you

              METEORA (2003)                           3. Somewhere I belong
                                                       When this began
                                                       I had nothing to say
1. Foreword                                            And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me
                                                       I was confused
Instrumental song                                      And I'd let it all out to find
                                                       That I'm not the only person with these things in mind
                                                       Inside of me
                                                       When all the vacancy the words revealed
                                                       Is the only real thing that I've got left to feel
2. Don't stay                                          Nothing to loose
                                                       Just stuck, hollow and alone
Sometimes I, need to remember just to breathe          And the fault is my own and the fault is my own
Sometimes I, need you to stay away from me
Sometimes I’m in disbelief I didn’t know               I wanna heal
Somehow I need you to go                               I wanna feel
                                                       What I thought was never real
Don’t stay                                             I want to let go of the pain I felt so long
Forget our memories                                    Erase all the pain till its gone
Forget our possibilities                               I wanna heal
What you were changing me into                         I wanna feel
Just give me myself back and                           Like I’m close to something real
Don’t stay                                             I want to find something I've wanted all along
Forget our memories                                    Somewhere I belong
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you                   And I've got nothing to say
Just give me myself back and                           I can't believe I didn’t fall right down on my face
Don’t stay                                             I was confused
                                                       Looking everywhere only to find
Sometimes I, feel like I trusted you too well          That it's not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
Sometimes I, just feel like screaming at myself        So what am I
Sometimes I’m in disbelief I didn’t know               What do I have but negativity
Somehow I need to be alone                             Cause I cant justify the way everyone is looking at me
                                                       Nothing to loose
Don’t stay                                             Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
Forget our memories                                    And the fault is my own and the fault is my own
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into                         I wanna heal
Just give me myself back and                           I wanna feel
Don’t stay                                             What I thought was never real
Forget our memories                                    I want to let go of the pain I felt so long
Forget our possibilities                               Erase all the pain till its gone
Take all your faithlessness with you                   I wanna heal
Just give me myself back and                           I wanna feel
Don’t stay                                             Like I’m close to something real
                                                       I want to find something I’ve wanted all along
I don’t need you anymore, I don’t want to be ignored   Somewhere I belong
I don’t need one more day of you wasting me away
I don’t need you anymore, I don’t want to be ignored   I will never know
I don’t need one more day of you wasting me away       Myself until I do this on my own
With no apologies                                      And I will never feel
                                                       Anything else, until my wounds are healed
Don’t stay                                             I will never be anything

till I break away from me                                This isn’t what I wanted to be, I never thought that
I will break away                                        what I said would
I'll find myself today                                   have you running from me
                                                         Like This
I wanna heal                                             This isn’t what I wanted to be, I never thought that
I wanna feel                                             what I said would
What I thought was never real                            have you running from me
I want to let go of the pain I felt so long              Like This
Erase all the pain till it's gone                        This isn’t what I wanted to be, I never thought that
I wanna heal                                             what I said would
I wanna feel                                             have you running from me
Like I’m close to something real                         Like This
I want to find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong                                       (You)
                                                         No turning back now
I wanna heal                                             (I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)
 I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong                No no turning back now
                                                         (Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)
I wanna heal                                             No turning back now
 I wanna feel like I'm somewhere I belong                (Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)
                                                         No no turning back now
Somewhere I belong                                       (The very worst part of you)
                                                         (The very worst part of you is me)



4. Lying from you
                                                         5. Hit the floor
When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you always wanted to see        There are just too many times that people have tried to
When I pretend, I can’t forget about the criminal I am   look inside of me
Stealing second after second just cause I know I can     Wondering what I think of you and I protect you out of
but                                                      courtesy
I can’t pretend this is the way it’ll stay I’m just      Too many times that I’ve held on what I needed to
(Lying to bend the truth)                                push away
I can’t pretend I’m who you want me to be, so I’m        Afraid to say what was on my mind afraid to say what I
                                                         need to say
(Lying my way from you)                                  Too many things that you said about me when I’m not
No no turning back now                                   around
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)                   You think having the upper hand means you gotta keep
No no turning back now                                   putting me down
(Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)       But I’ve had too many standoffs with you it’s about as
No turning back now                                      much as I can stand
(Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)                       So I’m waiting until the upper hand is mine
No no turning back now
(The very worst part of you is me)                       (One minute you're on top)
                                                         Next you're not watch you drop
I remember what they taught to me                        (Making your heart stop)
Remember condescending talk for who I ought to be        Just before you hit the floor
Remember listening to all of that and this again         (One minute you're on top)
So I pretended up a person who was fittin’ in            Next you're not missed a shot
And now you think this person really is me and I’m       (Making you're heart stop)
(Trying to bend the truth)                               You think you've won
Cuz the more I push the more I’m pulling away cuz I’m    (And then it's all gone)

(Lying my way from you)                                  So many people like me put so much trust in all your
No no turning back now                                   lies
(I wanna be pushed aside so let me go)                   So concerned with what you think to just say what we
No no turning back now                                   feel inside
(Let me take back my life I’d rather be all alone)       So many people like me walk on eggshells all day long
No turning back now                                      All I know is that all I want is to feel like I’m not
(Anywhere on my own cuz I can see)                       stepped on
No no turning back now                                   There are so many things you say that make me feel
(The very worst part of you)                             you crossed the line
(The very worst part of you is ME)                       What goes up will surely fall and I’m counting down the
                                                         time
This isn’t what I wanted to be, I never thought that     Cause I’ve had so many standoffs with you it’s about as
what I said would                                        much as I can stand
have you running from me                                 So I’m waiting until the upper hand is mine

(One minute you're on top)                               (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
Next you're not watch you drop                           (If I could take all the shame to the grave I would)
(Making your heart stop)                                 (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
Just before you hit the floor                            (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
(One minute you're on top)                               (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
Next you're not missed a shot                            (I would take all my shame to the grave)
(Making you're heart stop)
You think you've won                                     Just watching in the sun
(And then it's all gone)                                 All of my helplessness inside
(And then he’s all gone)                                 Pretending I don’t feel misplaced
(And then it's all gone)                                 It’s so much simpler to change
(And then he’s all gone)
(Now it’s all gone)                                      It’s easier to run
                                                         Replacing this pain with something numb
I know I’ll never trust a single thing you say           It’s so much easier to go
You knew your lies would divide us but you lied anyway   Than face all this pain here all alone
And all the lies have got you floating up above us all
But what goes up has got to fall                         It’s easier to run
                                                         (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
(One minute you're on top)                               (Retrace every wrong move that I made)
Next you're not watch you drop                           It’s easier to go
(Making your heart stop)                                 (If I could change I would take back the pain I would)
Just before you hit the floor                            (Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)
(One minute you're on top)                               (If I could stand up and take the blame I would)
Next you're not missed a shot                            (I would take all my shame to the grave)
(Making you're heart stop)
You think you've won
(And then it's all gone)
(And then he’s all gone)
(And then it's all gone)                                 7. Faint
(And then he’s all gone)
(Now it’s all gone)                                      I am a little bit of loneliness a little bit of disregard
                                                         Handful of complaints but I can’t help the fact that
                                                         everybody can see these scars
                                                         I am what I want you to want what I want you to feel
                                                         But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you,
6. Easier to run                                         to just believe this is real
                                                         So I let go, watching you, turn your back like you
It’s easier to run                                       always do
Replacing this pain with something more                  Face away and pretend that I'm not
It’s so much easier to go                                But I'll be here cause you want what I've got
Than face all this pain here all alone
                                                         (I can't feel the way I did before)
Something has been taken from deep inside of me          (Don't turn your back on me)
The secret I’ve kept locked away no one can ever see     (I won't be ignored)
Wounds so deep they never show they never go away        (Time won't heal this damage anymore)
Like moving pictures in my head for years and years      (Don't turn your back on me)
they’ve played                                           (I won't be ignored)

(If I could change I would take back the pain I would)   I am a little bit insecure a little unconfident
(Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)           Cause you don't understand I do what I can but
(If I could stand up and take the blame I would)         sometimes I don't make sense
(If I could take all the shame to the grave I would)     I say what you never wanna say but I've never had a
(If I could change I would take back the pain I would)   doubt
(Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)           It's like no matter what I do I can't convince you for
(If I could stand up and take the blame I would)         once just to hear me out
(I would take all my shame to the grave)                 So I let go watching you turn your back like you always
                                                         do
It’s easier to run                                       Face away and pretend that I'm not
Replacing this pain with something numb                  But I'll be here 'cause you’re all that I've got
It’s so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone                   (I can't feel the way I did before)
                                                         (Don't turn your back on me)
Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past             (I won't be ignored)
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have        (Time won't heal this damage anymore)
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back   (Don't turn your back on me)
And never moving forward so there’d never be a path      (I won't be ignored)

(If I could change I would take back the pain I would)   (Now)
(Retrace every wrong move that I made I would)           (Hear me out now)

                                                     (You'll always be right here)
Nothing ever stops all these thoughts and the pain   (You've become a part of me)
attached to them                                     (You'll always be my fear)
Sometimes I wonder why this is happenin'             (I can't separate)
It's like nothing I can do would distract me when    (Myself from what I've done)
I think of how I shot myself in the back again       (Giving up a part of me)
Cuz from the infinite words I can say I              (I've let myself become you)
Put all pain you gave to me on display               (I've let myself become you)
But didn't realize instead of setting it free I      (I've let myself become)
Took what I hated and made it a part of me           (lost inside these thoughts of you)
                                                     (giving up a part of me)
(Never goes away)                                    (I've let myself become you)
(Never goes away)

(And now)
(You've become a part of me)
(You'll always be right here)                        9. Breaking the habit
(You've become a part of me)
(You'll always be my fear)                           Memories consume
(I can't separate)                                   Like opening the wound
(Myself from what I've done)                         I'm picking me apart again
(Giving up a part of me)                             You all assume
(I've let myself become you)                         I'm safer in my room
                                                     Unless I try to start again
Hearing your name the memories come back again
I remember when it started happening                 I don't want to be the one
I see you n’ every thought I had and then            Who battles always choose
The thoughts slowly found words attached to them     Cuz inside I realize
And I knew as they escaped away                      That I'm the one confused
I was committing myself to em n’ everyday
I regret saying those things cuz now I see that I    I don't know what's worth fighting for
Took what I hated and made it a part of me           Or why I have to scream
                                                     I don't know why I instigate
(Never goes away)                                    And say what I don't mean
(Never goes away)                                    I don't know how I got this way
                                                     I know it's not alright
(And now)                                            So I'm breaking a habit
(You've become a part of me)                         I'm breaking a habit tonight
(You'll always be right here)
(You've become a part of me)                         Cultured my cure
(You'll always be my fear)                           I tightly lock the door
(I can't separate)                                   I try to catch my breath again
(Myself from what I've done)                         I hurt much more

Than anytime before                                       I won’t waste myself on you
I have no options left again                              You
                                                          You
I don’t want to be the one                                Waste myself on you
Who battles always choose                                 You
Cuz inside I realize                                      You
That I'm the one confused
                                                          I’ll take everything from the inside and throw it all
I don't know what's worth fighting for                    away
Or why I have to scream                                   Cuz I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with
I don't know why I instigate                              you
And say what I don't mean
I don't know how I got this way                            Everything from the inside and just throw it all away
I'll never be alright                                     Cuz I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with
So, I'm breaking a habit                                  you
I'm breaking a habit tonight                              You
                                                          You
I'll paint it on the walls
Cuz I'm the one that falls
I'll never fight again
And this is how it ends
                                                          11. Nobody's listening
I don't know what's worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream                                   Yo, peep the style and the kids checking for it
But now I have some clarity                               The number one question is how could you ignore it
to show you what I mean                                   And drop right back in the cut over basement tracks
I don't know how I got this way                           Rap stack got you back in the sub black
I'll never be alright                                     Rewind that we just rolling with the rhythm
So, I'm breaking a habit                                  Rise from the ashes of stylist division
I'm breaking the habit                                    With these non-stop lyrics of life living
I'm breaking a habit tonight                              Not to be forgotten but still unforgiving
                                                          But in the meantime there are those who wanna talk
                                                          this and that
                                                          So I suppose that it gets to a point where feelings gotta
                                                          get hurt
10. From the inside                                       And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt it goes

I don’t know who to trust                                 (Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me)
your surprise                                             Told you everything loud and clear
(Everyone feels so far away from me)                      (But nobody’s listening)
Happy thoughts sift through dust                          (Called to you so clearly but you don’t want to hear
and the lies                                              me)
(Trying not to break but I’m so tired of this deceit)     Told you everything loud and clear
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my        (But nobody’s listening)
feet)
(All I ever think about is this)                          I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
(All the tiring time between)                             Head full of anger, held in my chest
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so      And everything left’s a waste of time
much out of me)                                           I hate my rhymes, but hate everyone else’s more
                                                          I’m riding on the back of this pressure
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away     Guessing that it’s better I can’t keep myself together
Cuz I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with   Because all of this stress gave me something to write
you                                                       on
                                                          The pain gave me something I could set my sights on
Tension is building inside steadily                       Never forget the blood sweat and tears
(Everyone feels so far away from me)                      The uphill struggle over years the fear and
Happy thoughts forcing their way                          Trash talking and the people it was to
out of me                                                 And the people that started it just like you
(Trying not to break but I’m so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my        (Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me)
feet)                                                     Told you everything loud and clear
(All I ever think about is this)                          (But nobody’s listening)
(All the tiring time between)                             (Called to you so clearly but you don’t want to hear
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so      me)
much out of me)                                           Told you everything loud and clear
                                                          (But nobody’s listening)
Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
Cuz I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with   I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
you                                                       Head full of anger, held in my chest

Blood sweat n tears                                       afraid to lose control
Nothing to gain                                           cause everything that you thought I would be
Everything to fear                                        has fallen apart
                                                          right in front of you
Heart full of pain, head full of stress
Head full of anger, held in my chest                      (C aught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow)
Uphill struggle                                           Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Blood sweat n tears                                       (C aught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow)
Nothing to gain                                           And every second I waste is more than I can take
Everything to fear
                                                          I've
Heart full of pain                                        become so numb
                                                          I can't feel you there
(Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me)       become so tired
Told you everything loud and clear                        so much more aware
(But nobody’s listening)                                  I'm becoming this
(Called to you so clearly but you don’t want to hear      all I want to do
me)                                                       is be more like me
Told you everything loud and clear                        and be less like you
(But nobody’s listening)
                                                          And I know
I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress           I may end up failing too
(Nobody’s listening)                                      But I know
Head full of anger, held in my chest                      You were just like me with someone disappointed in
(Nobody’s listening)                                      you
Uphill struggle
Blood sweat n tears                                       I've
(Nobody’s listening)                                      become so numb
Nothing to gain                                           I can't feel you there
Everything to fear                                        become so tired
(Nobody’s listening)                                      so much more aware
                                                          I'm becoming this
Scratching Conclusion (Cu-coming at you from every        all I want to do
side)                                                     is be more like me
                                                          and be less like you

                                                          I've become so numb

Instrumental song                                         I can't feel you there

13. Numb

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
feeling so faithless
lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
put under the pressure
of walking in your shoes

(C aught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(C aught in the undertow / just caught in the undertow)

I've
become so numb
I can't feel you there
become so tired
so much more aware
I'm becoming this
all I want to do
is be more like me
and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
holding too tightly

                                                           In case fifty-two broads come out, now you chillin
                                                           with a boss bitch of course S.C. on the sleeve
                                                           At the 40/40 club, ESPN on the screen
                                                           I paid a grip for the jeans, plus the slippers is clean
                                                           No chrome on the wheels, I'm a grown-up for real

                                                           I remember what they taught to me
                                                           Remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
                                                           Remember listening to all of that and this again
                                                           So I pretended up a person who was fitting in
      COLLISION COURSE (2004)                              And now you think this person really is me and
                       With Jay Z                          Trying to bend the truth

But I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay             Anywhere on my own
I'm just trying to bend the truth                          'Cause I can see

Tryin to stretch out the coca, like a wrestler, yessir

2. Big pimpin’/Papercut                                We doin'... big pimpin', on B.L.A.D.'s
                                                       We doin'... big pimpin' up in N.Y.C.
                                                       It's just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B.U.N.B-B-B
Hahaha, wasting your talent Randy!
Yeah, you're ready?

It's like I'm paranoid, lookin' over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head                3. Jigga what/Faint
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right                     Uh,   uh,   Jigga   What?
                                                       Uh,   uh,   Jigga   Who?
Come on!                                               Uh,   uh,   Jigga   What?
                                                       Uh,   uh,   Jigga   Who?
Why does it feel like night today?                     Uh,   uh,   Jigga   What?
Something in here is not right today
Why am I so uptight today?                             You gonna need a vocal here right?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first                    Motherfuckers wanna act loco, hit 'em wit', numerous
Or how the pressure was fed                            shots with the fo'-fo'
But I know just what it feels like                     Faggots runnin' to the Po-Po's, smoke 'em like cocoa
To have a voice in the back of my head                 Fuck rap, coke by the boatload
It's like a face that I hold inside                    Fuck dat, on the run-by, gun high, one eye closed
A face that awakes when I close my eyes                Left holes through some guy clothes
A face that watches everytime they lie                 Stop your bullshittin', glock with the full clip
A face that laughs everytime they fall                 Motherfuckers better duck when the fool spit
(And watches everything)                               One shot could make a nigga do a full flip
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim          See the nigga layin' shocked when the bullet hit
That face inside is hearing me                         And hey ma, how you, know nigga'z wanna buy you
Right underneath my skin                               But see me I wanna fuck for free, like Akinyele
                                                       Take this ride 'til you feel it inside ya belly
It's like I'm paranoid, lookin' over my back           If it's tight get the K-Y Jelly
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head                All night get you wide up inside the telly
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within         Side to side, 'til you say Jay-Z you're too much for me
It's like the face inside is right
                                                       I am
You know I - thug 'em, fuck 'em, love 'em, leave 'em   A little bit of loneliness a little bit of disregard
Cause I don't fuckin' need em                          Handful of complaints but I can’t help the fact
Take 'em out the hood, keep 'em lookin' good           That everybody can see these scars
But I don't fuckin' feed 'em                           I am
First time they fuss I'm breezin'                      What I want you to want what I want you to feel
Talkin 'bout, "What's the reasons?"                    But it's like no matter what I do I can't convince you
I'm a pimp in every sense of the word, bitch           To just believe this is real
Better trust than believe' em                          So I
In the cut where I keep 'em                            Let go watching you turn your back like you always do
'til I need a nut, 'til I need to beat the guts        Face away and pretend that I'm not
Then it's, beep beep and I'm pickin' 'em up            But I'll be here cause your all that I've got
Let 'em play with the dick in the truck
Many chicks wanna put Jigga fist in cuffs              Got a condo with nuttin' but condoms in it
Divorce him and split his bucks                        The same place where the rhymes is invented
Just because you got good head, I'm a break bread      So all I do is rap and sex, imagine how I stroke
So you can be livin' it up? Shit I..                   See how I was flowin' on my last cassette?
Parts with nothin', y'all be frontin'                  Rapid-fire like I'm blastin a tec, never jam though
Me give my heart to a woman?                           Never get high, never run out of ammo
Not for nothin', never happen                          Nigga'z hatin' 'n' shit cause I slayed your bitch
I'll be forever mackin'                                You know your favorite, I know it made you sick
Heart cold as assassins, I got no passion              And now you're, actin' raw but you never had war
I got no patience                                      Don't know how to carry your hoe, wanna marry your
And I hate waitin'...                                  hoe
Hoe get yo' ass in                                     Now she's mad at me, cause your majesty, just
And let's ri-i-i-i-i-ide... check 'em out now          happened to be
ri-i-i-i-i-ide, yeah                                   A pimp with a tragedy
And let's ri-i-i-i-i-ide... check 'em out now          She wanted, us to end, cause I fucked her friend
ri-i-i-i-i-ide, yeah                                   She gave me one more chance and I fucked her again
                                                       I seen her tears as she busted in, I said
We doin'... big pimpin', we spendin' G's               "Shit there's a draft, shut the door bitch and come on
Check 'em out now                                      in!"
Big pimpin', on B.L.A.D.'s
We doin'... big pimpin' up in N.Y.C.                   I am
It's just that Jigga Man, Pimp C, and B.U.N.B          A little bit insecure a little unconfident
Yo yo yo... big pimpin', spendin' G's                  Cause you don't understand I do what I can

Linkin Park Lyrics                                                                               Collision Course


But sometimes I don't make sense
I am                                                        Who you know fresher than Hov'? Riddle me that
What you never wanna say but I've never had a doubt         The rest of y'all know where I'm lyrically at
It's like no matter what I do I can't convince you          Can't none of y'all mirror me back
For once just to hear me out                                Yeah hearin me rap is like hearin G. Rap in his prime
So I                                                        I'm, young H.O., rap's Grateful Dead
Let go watching you turn your back like you always do       Back to take over the globe, now break bread
Face away and pretend that I'm not                          I'm in, Boeing jets, Global Express
But I'll be here 'cause you’re all that I've got            Out the country but the blueberry still connect
                                                            On the low but the yacht got a triple deck
I can't feel the way I did before                           But when you Young, what the f*** you expect? (Yep,
Don't turn your back on me                                  yep)
I won't be ignored                                          Grand openin, grand closin
Time won't heal this damage anymore                         God your man Hov' cracked the can open again
Don't turn your back on me                                  Who you gon' find doper than him with no pen
I won't be ignored                                          just draw off inspiration
                                                            Soon you gon' see you can't replace him
Now                                                         with cheap imitations for DESE GENERATIONS
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now                                                   [Repeat Chorus]
Hear me out now
You're gonna listen to me, like it or not
Right now                                                   {What the hell are you waiting forrrr?}

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me                                  [JAY-Z: Verse Two]
I won't be ignored
                                                            {*sighs*} Look what you made me do, look what I
I can't feel the way I did before                           made for you
Don't turn your back on me                                  Knew if I paid my dues, how will they pay you
I won't be ignored                                          When you first come in the game, they try to play you
Time won't heal this damage anymore                         Then you drop a couple of hits, look how they wave to
Don't turn your back on me                                  you
I won't be ignored                                          From Marcy to Madison Square
                                                            To the only thing that matters in just a matter of years
I can't feel                                                (yea)
Don't turn your back on me                                  As fate would have it, Jay's status appears
I won't be ignored                                          to be at an all-time high, perfect time to say goodbye
Time won't heal                                             When I come back like Jordan, wearin the 4-5
Don't turn your back on me                                  It ain't to play games witchu
I won't be ignored                                          It's to aim at you, probably maim you
                                                            If I owe you I'm blowin you to smithereeens
                                                            c***sucker take one for your team
                                                            And I need you to remember one thing (one thing)
                                                            I came, I saw, I conquered
4. Numb/Encore                                              From record sales, to sold out concerts
                                                            So muh'f***er if you want this encore
[JAY-Z]                                                     I need you to scream, 'til your lungs get sore

Thank you, thank you, thank you, you're far too kind
                                                            [LINKIN PARK: Verse]

[JAY-Z: Chorus]                                             I'm tired of being what you want me to be
                                                            Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Now can I get an encore, do you want more                   Don't know what you're expecting of me
Cookin raw with the Brooklyn boy                            But under the pressure of walking in your shoes
So for one last time I need y'all to roar.. (yeah, whoo!)   (Caught in the undertone, just caught in the undertone)
Now what the hell are you waitin for                        Every step that I take is another mistake to you
After me, there shall be no more                            (Caught in the undertone, just caught in the undertone)
So for one last time, nigga make some noise                 And every second I waste is more than I can take


[MIKE SHINODA]                                              [LINKIN PARK: Chorus]

Get 'em J..                                                 I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
                                                            I've become so tired, so much more aware
                                                            I've becoming this, all I want to do
[JAY-Z: Verse One]                                          Is be more like me and be less like you

                                                        To explain in due time
[LINKIN PARK]                                           All I know
                                                        Time is a valuable thing
I've become so numb..                                   Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
                                                        Watch it count down to the end of the day
                                                        The clock ticks life away
[JAY-Z]                                                 It’s so unreal
                                                        Didn’t look out below
Can I get an encore, do you want more (more more        Watch the time go right out the window
more)..                                                 Trying to hold on and didn’t even know
                                                        I wasted it all just to watch you go
                                                        I kept everything inside and even though I tried it all
[LINKIN PARK]                                           fell apart
                                                        What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a
I've become so numb..                                   time when
                                                        I tried so

So for one last time I need y'all to roar               We'll have a good old time out there
One last time I need y'all to roar                      It starts with

Got it dirt cheap for them                              Rap critics that say he's "Money Cash Hoes"

Yo, It starts with one thing...                         Bounce on the devil put the pedal to the floor
                                                        Now i ain't tryin to see no highway chase with jake
I don’t know why                                        Plus i got a few dollars i can fight the case
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try                 So i...pull over to the side of the road
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme                 And i heard "Son do you know why i'm stoppin' you

99 problems but a bitch ain't one
If your having girl problems I feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one

Now once upon a time not too long ago
A nigga like myself had to strong arm a hoe
This is not a hoe in the sense of havin' a pussy
But a pussy havin no God Damn sense, try and push
me
I tried to ignore him and talk to the Lord
Pray for him, cause some fools just love to perform
You know the type loud as a motor bike
But wouldn't bust a grape in a fruit fight
The only thing that's gonna happen is im'ma get to
clappin
He and his boys gon be yappin to the captain
And there i go traped in the kit kat again
Back through the system with the riff raff again
Fiends on the floor scratchin' again
Paparatzi's with they cameras snappin' them
D.A. tred to give the nigga the shaft again
Half-a-mil for bail 'cause i'm African
All because ths fool was harrasin' them
Tryin to play the boy like hes saccarin'
But ain't nothin sweet 'bout how i hold my gun
I got 99 problems but this bitch ain't one

99 problems but a bitch ain't one
If your having girl problems I feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me
99 problems but a bitch ain't one
If your having girl problems I feel bad for you son
I got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one
Hit me

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up

I’ve been diggin into crates ever since I was livin in    And like the rock and rap
space                                                     You know what I mean
Before the retrace, before monkeys had human traits       People act like you know
I mastered numerology and big bang theology               Wow that’s a new invention
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology          That shits brand new
Invented the mic so I could start blessin it              We're constantly evolving
Chincheckin kids to make my point like an impressionist   It is constantly changing
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords in double helixes and show them     Sometimes...
what I’m made of
I buckle knees like leg braces                            There's a lot of change
Cast the spell of instrumental-ness and all of you        Everybody's always up with labels
emcees who hate us                                        There ain’t no label for this ****
So you can try on,                                        They're always gonna try to put a label on it
Leave you without a shoulder to cry on                    Try to create something
From now to infinity let icons be bygones                 So they can water it down
I fire bomb ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats but moved on to a promise                 Sometimes I feel like a prophet
I stomp **** with or without an accomplice                Misunderstood
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this         Under the gun like a new disease
                                                          Sometimes I feel like a prophet
High Voltage                                              Misunderstood
The unforgettable sound                                   Under the gun like a new disease

High Voltage                                            The elevate of mental states
The Unforgettable sound                                 Long gone with the wind
High Voltage                                            To defend men for shoddy imitation pretends
Bringing you up and taking you down                     It’s going down

Coming at you from every side                           Trekking through the weaponry
High Voltage                                            Of the pure pedigree
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide                     Cleverly seeing through whatever is ahead of me
                                                        Whatever the weather be
You know what I mean, you can put a label on a          We invent the steadily
lifestyle                                               It’s going down to sub-terrestrial high

                                                        Execution of collaborative plots
                                                        Ready to bring the separation of style to a stop
2. It's going down (The X-Ecutioners)                   It’s going down
(featuring Mr. Hahn & Mike Shinoda)                     A logical progression on a the timeline
                                                        The separation narrowed down to a fine line
I knew I was being threatened                           To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Do you think it’s worth holding out?                    Take you on an audible odyssey
I mean I’ve heard some pretty ugly things about those   Now, it’s going down

                                                        It’s going down
It’s going down                                         X-men ‘bout to blast of world wide
The rhythm projects ‘round the next sound               Yo it’s request only
Reflects the complex hybrid dialect now                 X- men ‘bout to blast of world wide
Detect the mesh of many elements compressed down        It’s built from scratch
The melting pot of a super-futureesque style            Album in stores soon
The combination of a vocal caress                       ‘Bout to blast off world wide
With lungs that gasp for breath                         And you do it like this
From emotional stress
With special effects                                    It’s going down
And a distorted collage                                 Put put put it up
Carefully lodged between beats of rhythmic barrage      It said it goes like this
                                                        And you do it like this
It’s going down                                         It’s going down
The logical progression on a the timeline               Put put it up
The separation narrowed down to a fine line             It said it goes like this
To blur the edges so they blend together properly       And you do it like this
Take you on an audible odyssey                          It’s going down
Now it’s going down                                     Like this...
A logical progression on the timeline
The separation narrowed down to a fine line
To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Take u on a an audible odyssey
Now it’s going down                                     3. The morning after
Put put put it up
It said it goes like this                               Caught up against the war again
And you do it like this                                 Time to chill in the bar again
It’s going down                                         Never seize to amaze in minds
Put put it up                                           So I just sleep sleep sleep please don't
It said it go- go- goes like this
And you do it like this                                 Wake me till the morning after
Its going down                                          Wake me till the morning after
Once again it is
Composed sentences all together venomous                Cut my peace by the flower again
The four elements of natural force                      Lick my wounds like a dove again
Projected daily through the sound of the source         Is that a light at the end of the tunnel
Everybody on board with this blend                      That I see I see please let it be but don't
The sword with the pen
The mightiest is the weapons                            Wake me till the morning after
Swinging right from the chin                            Wake me till the morning after

Wake me till the morning after                     5. Karma killer (Cyclefly)
Oh I'm so tired there has got to be an end         (featuring Chester Bennington)
to the pain I feel when I'm
awake and alive alive alive                        I spread through the morning
alive and not dreamin'                             I'm kicking in the twilight as she comes
                                                   Time waits at a darling
Caught up against the war again                    Spooning the thickness and feeding our open mouths
Time to chill in the bar again
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel           The price you pay is always
That I see I see please let it be but don't
                                                   Too high, or too familiar
Wake me till the morning after                     Sunshine, Karma Killer
Wake me till the morning after
Wake me till the morning after                     Time waits at the darling
                                                   When your following the animals around (around)
Oh I'm so tired there has got to be an end         I spread through the morning
to the pain I feel when I'm                        Feeding our open mouths and spooning the thickness
Awake and alive alive alive                        out
Alive and not dreamin'
                                                   The price you pay is always

                                                   Too high, or too familiar
                                                   Sunshine, Karma Killer
4. Wonderful (Stone temple pilots)
(featuring Chester Bennington)                     Too high, or too familiar
                                                   Sunshine, Karma Killer
If I were to die this mornin'
Would you tell me things that you wouldn't have?   My eyes are weary now
Would you be my navigator?                         My eyes are weary
Would you take me to a place we could hide?        My eyes are weary now

As I'm fallin' out                                 Too high, or too familiar
I wonder what I lost                               Sunshine, Karma Killer
Must be movin' on                                  Too high, or too familiar
Know I'll be safe but not alone                    Sunshine, Karma Killer

I wanna ask you to forgive me                      Karma Killer
I haven't been the best with all that I had        Will I ever miss you?
Wish I'd only laid beside you
I think I spread myself a little too thin

As I'm fallin' out                                 6. System (Chester Bennington)
I wonder what I lost
Must be movin' on                                  (Queen of the damned OST)
Know I'll be safe but not alone
                                                   Sys...tem...
You're the everything                              Sys...tem...
That led me to believe,                            Sys...tem...
"Hold on, hold on"
You're the wonder in everything                    You fell away
That's wonderful                                   What more can I say?
                                                   The feelings evolved
As I'm fadin' out                                  I won't let it out
I don't feel anything at all                       I can't replace
Must be movin' on                                  Your screaming face
Know you'll be safe but not alone                  Feeling the sickness inside

You're the everything                              Why won't you die?
That led me to believe,                            Your blood in mine
"Hold on, hold on"                                 Will be fine
You're the wonder in everything                    Then your body will be mine
That's wonderful
                                                   So many words
Know you'll be safe but not alone                  Can't describe my face
                                                   This feeling's evolved
                                                   So soon to great bounds
                                                   I can't relate
                                                   to a happy state
                                                   Feeling the blood run inside

                                                          I find I can´t rely on myself
Why won't you die?                                        In my mind I find
Your blood in mine
Will be fine                                              I can't hold on
Then your body will be mine                               To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
                                                          It's all too much to take in
Why is everything so fucking hard for me?                 I can't hold on
Keep me down to watch you...                              To anything watching everything spin
Must you tempt me and provoke the ministry?               With thoughts of failure sinking in
Keep on trying, I'm not done so easily (I will not die)
                                                          How do you think
Why is everything so fucking hard for me? (I will not     I've lost so much
die)                                                      I'm so afraid
Why is everything so fucking hard for me? (I will not     I'm out of to uch
die)                                                      How do you expect
                                                          I will know what to do
Why won't you die?                                        When all I know
Your blood in mine                                        Is what you tell me to
Will be fine
Then your body will be mine                               Don't you know
Why won't you die?                                        I can't tell you how to make it go
Your blood in mine                                        No matter what I do, how hard I try
Will be fine                                              I can't seem to convince myself why
Then your body will be mine                               I'm stuck on the outside

                                                          Don't you know
                                                          I can't tell you how to make it go
                                                          No matter what I do, how hard I try
7. By myself (Marylin Manson remix)                       I can't seem to convince myself why
                                                          I'm stuck on the outside
What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?                         I can't hold on
Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams                To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?           It's all too much to take in
Do I / sit here and try to stand it?                      I can't hold on
Or do I / try to catch them red - handed?                 To anything watching everything spin
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,              With thoughts of failure sinking in
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on / when I'm stretched so thin      I can't hold on
I make the right moves but I'm lost within                To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
I put on my daily façade but then                         It's all too much to take in
I just end up getting hurt again                          I can't hold on
                                                          To anything watching everything spin
By myself [myself]                                        With thoughts of failure sinking in
I ask why [myself]
I can't rely on myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can´t rely on myself

I can't hold on
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to take in
I can't hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then they'll
Take from me 'till everything is gone
If I let them go I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

By myself [myself]
I ask why [myself]
I can't rely on myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
