Tell me the words I've forgotten What we were fighting for Staring right into the darkness Through an empty open door

“Friendly Fire’ was always one of our favorite songs from the One More Light sessions. Something about it wasn’t quite right so as close as it got to the finish line, we chose to set it aside for later. When we started looking for an unreleased track to include on our greatest hits collection, I was blown away by the power of the song, the power of the storytelling, the power of the vocal, the sonic landscape and I actually thought that it was closer than maybe we had realized at the time.” Delson continued, “We got together to work on it and connect some of the missing pieces that for whatever reason hadn’t revealed themselves during the recording of One More Light . I can’t wait for people to hear it. It’s such a beautiful, compelling, heartbreaking, hopeful story and it really resonates with me today.”
“In the making of each Linkin Park album, I want to love and believe in each individual song completely,” says Mike Shinoda. “I hope that if any one track is heard on its own in the world, it is something I can feel proud of, and something that takes root inside the listener and becomes part of the energy that connects us. “Curating the tracks for Papercuts was a joy,” Shinoda continues. “Each song in this collection is both a singular moment on our timeline and an evolving story that is as much ours as it is yours. From our first release ‘One Step Closer’ to the brand-new ‘Friendly Fire,’ this tracklist spans all our chapters so far. Thank you for being a part of our journey. We hope you enjoy Papercuts .”

Papercuts is the first singles collection from innovative musical force Linkin Park. The career-spanning 20-track album compiles 18 essential anthems, plus the never-before-released track “Friendly Fire” recorded during the 2017 sessions for their seventh album One More Light and fan-favorite rarity “QWERTY.” Linkin Park were inspired to thoughtfully curate Papercuts by their fans’ passionate reception of the 20th Anniversary Editions of Hybrid Theor y in 2020 and Meteora last year. That enthusiasm led to this comprehensive retrospective of the band’s journey so far in the span of one album.

  • On lead guitar is Kazuki (かずき) , also known as NagomiBright . Kazuki's YouTube channel features a myriad of guitar covers, tutorials and effects gear reviews and has over 337,000 subscribers.
  • On bass is MINA , previously a member of the now-defunct Japanese pop-rock act GIRLFRIEND. MINA posts bass guitar covers, tutorials and tips on her YouTube channel, where she is also shown to be proficient with a number of other instruments. She also posts short-form content on TikTok which has earned her 1.6 million followers there.
  • On piano is Yomii (よみぃ) , who runs a piano-centered YouTube channel with over 2 million subscribers. Yomii began earning accolades in music at a young age: at 15, he composed a piece which won first prize in an official music contest for the Bandai Namco rhythm game "Taiko no Tatsujin". His achievements since then include becoming an ambassador, instructor and advisor for Yamaha's AI Music Ensemble system. His most recent video documents some entertaining shenanigans from the "Already Over" session in Tokyo ...
  • On the drums is Maiki (マイキ) , AKA Maiki P , an artist and songwriter who formerly played drums as part of a Japanese pop duo LatuLatu (ラトゥラトゥ) and the rock outfit Yullie-Echo (ユーリーエコー). In addition to drumming, Maiki provides songwriting and production contributions to other Japanese artists, and some of the work he has been involved in appears on his YouTube channel, which boasts almost 900,000 subscribers.
  • Providing musical direction and perhaps helping Shinoda to oversee the whole affair is Minoru Yokoo , a veteran recording engineer and coordinator who has filled a wide range of management and technical roles for rock bands and orchestral acts around the world since the early 90s.

  • Backing Shinoda up on vocals is the young artist and songwriter Damona , who hails from Bavaria. Damona started out with a brief stint on "The Voice Kids" (a "Voice of Germany" spin-off focused on children) in early 2022, before moving on to grow her own following online and eventually getting signed to a label later that same year. Over the past couple of years, Damona has been refining her 90s-influenced pop-rock sound while consistently nurturing her online fanbase on platforms like TikTok, where she has over 2 million followers.
  • Handling the lead guitar and providing some backing vocals also is wavvyboi , a non-binary pop artist, songwriter and producer with a string of commercial releases stretching back to 2018. wavvyboi has dropped a lot of music since then, and has drawn from a wide variety of genres along the way - hard rock and metal, shoegaze, synth-pop and beyond - but an emphasis on noisy guitar riffs and an unrelenting focus on catchy melodies has stayed consistent across all of it. Their discography is also peppered with collaborations with other adventurous German artists.
  • On rhythm guitar and also doing backing vocals is Simon Will , a YouTuber and artist whose musical output consists of only a few songs between 2020 and now. Out of those, his 2023 musical offerings have been more guitar-heavy pop numbers, as opposed to singles from prior years which featured a softer, more reggaeton-influenced sound.
  • Playing the keyboard is Tobias Hildebrand, AKA tobiplayspiano , a Dresden-based content creator who is best-known for this TikTok post from 2022, which shows him sitting down and improvising on a public piano; the post went viral and has amassed nearly 10 million views to date. Hildebrand's videos feature various covers of popular songs, more public piano performances, and also things like reinterpreting the iconic iPhone ringtone for piano added in for good measure. He has also released a few original compositions which comprise his YouTube channel .
  • On bass is Marti Fischer , a bassist and content creator who has been active on YouTube for over a decade, and whose Instagram bio explains that he's a jack of several trades: music producer, podcaster, web video creator, impersonator and more. Fittingly, Fischer's YouTube content is widely-varied, but the bulk of it seems to be videos about music composition and production, where he analyses music by acts like Depeche Mode, Daft Punk and ABBA, or quickly explains subgenres like darkwave.
  • Behind the drum kit is Raja Meissner , a drummer and content creator based in Berlin who has been playing professionally since her early teens, and whose drumming videos have gained her almost a million TikTok followers. Meissner's selections for covers mostly lean towards hard rock and metal, with many covers of Slipknot songs in particular.

  • On additional vocals is Nørskov , a Danish singer based in Sheffield who is best-known for competing on the 10th season "The Voice UK", and for singing on Rudimental's 2021 single "Straight From The Heart", her only commercial release to date
  • On lead guitar is Paul Davids , a Dutch guitarist and teacher whose successful YouTube channel naturally features guitar tutorial videos and other such content, boasting over 3 million subscribers
  • Playing rhythm guitar is Diego Riera , a content creator from England who began posting guitar performances on TikTok in late 2020, and now has around 1.5 million followers on the platform
  • On keyboard and backing vocals is British bass guitar virtuoso Charles Berthoud , creator of entertaining bass guitar YouTube videos which have gained him almost 2 million subscribers
  • On the actual bass guitar and backing vocals is Cambridgeshire-born artist, songwriter and producer Ellie Dixon , whose alt-pop music and random instrument choices have gained her over a million followers on TikTok
  • And, lastly, behind the drum kit is Sam Arrow , a London-based musician who posts drum covers online and who has played on tour for a variety of musicians including Shinoda affiliate grandson

  • Bobby Amaru , currently the lead vocalist of the rock band Saliva, joins Shinoda on vocal duties along with his daughter Veda (AKA Veda J)
  • Nalu The Piano Man , known for clever piano mash-up covers, is behind the keyboard
  • Brazilian guitarist Mateus Asato , who has toured with various pop acts, and whose guitar videos on Instagram have gained him over a million followers, plays lead guitar
  • Morgan F. Kennedy , guitarist and songwriter who began posting guitar content online late 2020 and has since amassed over 2 million TikTok followers, is on rhythm guitar
  • mynameisnotdrew , best-known for comedic bass and guitar shorts that he uploads to TikTok, is rocking the bass
  • and, last but not least, Nate Mueller , who has built an audience of over a million with his drumming talent, and who is still studying music in college, on the drum kit

Linkin Park’s ‘Meteora’ Surprise: Unheard Chester Bennington Songs

A 20th anniversary edition of the band’s blockbuster second album will include a handful of previously unreleased demos and the completed track “Lost.”

Chester Bennington closes his eyes and screams, one leg propped up on a monitor and his hands grasping the microphone close to his mouth.

By Jeremy Gordon

Enough time has passed since his band’s first record that the Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda has reached the stage of his career where his children’s friends are shocked to learn he was in one of the biggest bands of the 2000s. “The reactions are hysterical,” the musician, 45, said in a video interview from his home studio in Los Angeles.

He offered a knowing smile about what it meant that it had taken so long. “I think we gradually got comfortable with being elder statesmen,” he said about being discovered by the next generation. “But I’m really grateful for the respect that the band is enjoying from younger people, whether it’s fans or people who are making music.”

Linkin Park has not released a new album since May 2017, two months before its other frontman, Chester Bennington, died by suicide at 41. But while assembling material for a 20th anniversary reissue of the band’s second album, “Meteora,” Shinoda came upon something fans haven’t heard before: a handful of unreleased, close-to-complete songs that have sat in the band’s archives for two decades.

The first of those tracks, “Lost” — built around Bennington’s passionate vocals, and out on Friday — was pulled from one of Shinoda’s dormant hard drives. “Everything came back,” he said, about rediscovering the track. “That was that day. That was that thing. I remembered us having this conversation about which songs should make the cut.”

The song, which was fully recorded and mixed in 2003, was ultimately left off “Meteora” because it was similar to “Numb,” an album single that reached No. 11 on the Billboard chart and has 1.9 billion YouTube views. Today, it serves as an example of Bennington’s potent talents during the band’s commercial peak. (“Meteora” went seven-times platinum; the band’s 2000 debut, “Hybrid Theory,” has an RIAA diamond certification for sales over 10 million.)

“He could take that thing he was singing, and just sledgehammer it through somebody’s heart,” Shinoda said with reverence. “I’ve grown to appreciate what we had even more, because it’s hard to get that. I work with people where I go, ‘Oh, can you sing it this way?’ And they just can’t.”

Brad Delson, the band’s guitarist, called “Lost” a “surprise gift” from Bennington. “The performance is so beautiful, delicate and clear,” he said. “I’ve heard a lot of great Chester vocals, and this is among the best.”

The band also revived two nearly completed songs: “Fighting Myself,” which Shinoda finished mixing last year and called “a definitive Linkin Park track,” and “More the Victim,” released in a version that’s “basically the furthest we got with it, in terms of a demo.” Shinoda said “Fighting Myself” received a light touch during the mixing process to preserve its period authenticity.

“I really wanted to keep it true to the initial intention, because I didn’t want to taint this time warp,” he said. “What I love about the three new songs is that all of them represent a different facet of the band, as it was in 2003.”

“Meteora” was made at a critical moment in Linkin Park’s career. “Hybrid Theory” was the best-selling album of 2001 , outpacing LPs from established superstars like ’N Sync, Jay-Z and Destiny’s Child. This seemingly instant success placed more attention and pressure on the band, which began writing the songs that would make up “Meteora” while on tour.

“Our attitude, going into the sessions, was that we had everything to prove,” Shinoda said. The fusion of sounds from “Hybrid Theory” — emotive singing alongside nimble rapping, hip-hop rhythms underneath distorted guitars — was already being mimicked across the industry, and the band was eager to prove its creative versatility. “We said, ‘We wrote this formula, so we got to rewrite it, and let people know we’re bigger than that,’” he explained. “‘Because if we don’t start to pivot, we’re going to get stuck forever.’”

The super deluxe version of the “Meteora” reissue, due April 7, features “Work in Progress,” a collection of edited tour footage shot by the band’s in-house videographer, Mark Fiore, who captured what Shinoda called “weird, fly-on-the-wall stuff.” The boxed set also includes five previously unreleased full-length concert recordings, taken from a period when the band was constantly on tour at stadiums and arenas around the world.

Shinoda said that assembling the “Meteora” set inspired different feelings than the “Hybrid Theory” anniversary, which the band marked in 2020 with a similar boxed set. “We were still processing Chester’s passing at the time we were putting that stuff together,” he said. “Now, the tone for me was much more celebratory.”

As Linkin Park matured and its members started families and pursued other commitments, the band inevitably began to shift. The new collection offers a portrait of a group that was still ascending, and working as a unit to achieve all its goals. “When we made ‘Meteora,’ the band was everything,” Shinoda said. “We had so much dedication to what we were building at the time, but there was also that wonderful naïveté. We were just flying by the seat of our pants.”

No version of Linkin Park has played live since a 2017 tribute concert to Bennington , where his vocals were sung by a committee of guest musicians including Jonathan Davis of Korn, Machine Gun Kelly and Alanis Morissette. Currently, there are no plans for the band to stage a similar performance, or record without Bennington. “I don’t think we can predict that,” Shinoda said. “You have to let things travel in whatever direction. If and when it’s the right time, that’ll occur to us.”

But the process of assembling the reissue has provided another means of considering how Bennington may have wanted the band to proceed without him. In particular, Shinoda said he “felt confident” that the singer would have endorsed these expanded editions. “Historically, he was always way more bullish about putting out stuff,” he said. “A typical Chester reaction would have been, ‘Why not just make the album 15 songs?’ When I thought about that, it was very reassuring.”

Linkin Park Release the Unheard ‘Friendly Fire,’ Announce New Singles Compilation

Linkin Park have officially released "Friendly Fire," a previously unheard One More Light -era song from 2017 that features lead vocals from the late Chester Bennington .

The band began teasing the song earlier this week after Linkin Park's social media outposts, YouTube channel and Spotify tracks started displaying a distinct green shade  as a cryptic clue . A 30-second preview of "Friendly Fire" then arrived. Now, Linkin Park fans can listen to the entire song and watch its music video.

Hear "Friendly Fire" near the bottom of this post.

In tandem with the song's arrival, Linkin Park announced a forthcoming singles compilation, the career-spanning  Papercuts (Singles Collection 2000–2023 , to be released April 12.

Speaking on "Friendly Fire" in 2020, Linkin Park's  Mike Shinoda said , "There was a song, a One More Ligh t song that we mixed. We mixed more than the finished album, and we mixed a couple other songs just to see if one of them would make the cut, or if we would use it for a B-side."

Despite the surviving members of Linkin Park not performing together publicly since Bennington's tribute concert  following his 2017 death, the band hasn't been dormant.

They spent the bulk of 2023 celebrating their influential second album, 2003's  Meteora , with an anniversary reissue  of the effort that include the previously unreleased " Lost ."

In 2020, the band released a 20th-anniversary edition of their watershed 2000 debut, Hybrid Theory . The bonus content includes previously released B-sides and live songs plus unheard demos and other material from the era that arrived for the first time on the reissue.

LINKIN PARK Bassist On Band's Future: 'I Think That We Will Do Something Again At Some Point'

In a new interview with Duffy of the Z93 radio station, LINKIN PARK bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrell was asked if he thinks there will ever be new music from him and his bandmates. He responded (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET ): "The best answer I can give is I think that we will do something again at some point. I think we'll do, hopefully, new music. And I would love to play some shows.

"The reality of it is that the timetable, I have no idea what that is or what that looks like," he explained. "And we're not trying or haven't made any progress toward doing it.

"The relationship in the band is still intact between all the guys and we're still in communication, but everybody is always in different kind of spaces. And the amount of earth that needs to be moved to begin the construction project of LINKIN PARK and whatever that may look like is a ton, and it's not going anywhere fast.

"And so it's just kind of a 'wait and see,'" Farrell added. "I know that's not the answer that anybody wants 'cause it's not really any information. But at the same time, I think it's just kind of honestly where it's at."

LINKIN PARK has been on hiatus since the death of singer Chester Bennington in 2017.

A year ago, LINKIN PARK 's Mike Shinoda said that there are no plans for new music, albums or live shows from the band. The 46-year-old musician addressed LINKIN PARK 's future during a Twitch livestream.

"The only LINKIN PARK news I have for you is that… Yeah, we talk every few weeks — I talk to the guys, or some of the guys," he said. "And there's no tours, there's no music, there's no albums in the pipeline. Okay, so let me just tell you that. So just keep in your minds that that is not happening.

"I'm just gonna say that much for now," he continued. "I say that because anytime the band says anything or does anything, everyone tries to start up the hype train, and we're, like, 'No, no, no, no. Don't start up the hype train.' You're gonna disappoint yourself. Don't do that."

LINKIN PARK has not performed together in public since October 2017, when the surviving members staged a tribute concert in Los Angeles to Bennington . The band has not officially announced whether it intends to carry on following the death of Bennington , who committed suicide in July 2017 at the age of 41.

Four years ago, Shinoda shot down reports that LINKIN PARK was actively searching for a replacement for Bennington . In February 2019, Shinoda took to his Twitter account to write: "Lemme clarify a rumor: we are not looking for a new singer, and if it were to happen organically, I'd be open. Seems pretty clear, yet I guess some folks have a hard time understanding.

"I'm not into predicting the future. The future will happen."

Shinoda made his comments in an apparent response to how the media covered an interview he gave to Rock Antenne . When asked about the possibility of finding a new singer, Shinoda said: "That's not my goal right now. I think it has to happen naturally. And if we find somebody that's a great person that we think is a good personality fit and a good stylistic fit, then I could see trying to do some stuff with somebody... I wouldn't wanna ever feel like we were replacing Chester ."

Shinoda added: "I know the other guys, they love to get onstage, they love to be in the studio, and so to not do that would be — I don't know — almost unhealthy. If doing that means that we need to have some other people in the mix in order to do it and do it well, then we would do that... But, like I said before, it has to happen naturally. I'm not running out and putting up 'vocalist wanted' posters."

Bennington 's passing was ruled a suicide soon after his body was found in July 2017 at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California.

Chester had been candid about mental-health battles in numerous interviews over the years, saying he grappled with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts and substance abuse. His struggles with drugs and alcohol landed him in rehab twice around 2006.

LINKIN PARK released a concert album titled "One More Light Live" in December 2017.

NOBODY CAN SAVE ME

  • GOOD GOODBYE (FEAT. PUSHA T & STORMZY)

TALKING TO MYSELF

BATTLE SYMPHONY

  • HEAVY (FEAT. KIIARA)

SORRY FOR NOW

HALFWAY RIGHT

ONE MORE LIGHT

SHARP EDGES

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Jon Green)

I’m dancing with my demons

I’m hanging off the edge

Storm clouds gather beneath me

Waves break above my head

Headfirst hallucination

I wanna fall wide awake now

You tell me it’s alright

Tell me I’m forgiven tonight

But nobody can save me now

I’m holding up a light

Chasing out the darkness inside

’Cause nobody can save me

Stared into this illusion

For answers yet to come

I chose a false solution

But nobody proved me wrong

I wanna fall wide awake

Watch the ground giving way now

Been searching somewhere out there

For what’s been missing right here

I’ve been searching somewhere out there

So tell me it’s alright

And only I can save me now

And I don’t want to let you down

But only I can save me

GOOD GOODBYE feat. Pusha T and Stormzy

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Jesse Shatkin/Terrance Thornton/Michael Omari)

So say goodbye and hit the road

Pack it up and disappear

You better have some place to go

’Cause you can’t come back around here

Good goodbye

(Don’t you come back no more)

Live from the rhythm it’s

Something wild, venomous

Enemies trying to read me

You’re all looking highly illiterate

Blindly forgetting if i’m in the mix

You won’t find an equivalent

I’ve been here killing it 

Longer than you’ve been alive, you idiot

And it makes you so mad

Somebody else could be stepping in front of you

And it makes you so mad that you’re not

The only one / there’s more than one of you

And you can’t understand the fact

That it’s over and done

Hope you had fun

You’ve got a lot to discuss on the bus

Headed back where you’re from

Goodbye / good riddance

A period is after every sentence

Did my time with my cellmate

Maxed out so now we finished

Every day was like a hail date

Every night was like a hailstorm

Took her back to my tinted windows

Showin’ out she in rare form

Wings up now i’m airborne

King push, they got a chair for him

Make way for the new queen

The old lineup where they cheer for ’em

Consequence when you ain’t there for him

Were you there for him?

Did you care for him?

You were dead wrong

Let me say goodbye to my demons

Let me say goodbye to my past life

Let me say goodbye to the darkness

Tell ’em that I’d rather be here in the starlight

Tell ’em that I’d rather be here where they love me

Tell ’em that I’m yours this is our life

And I still keep raising the bar like

Never seen a young black brother

In the chart twice

Goodbye to the stereotypes

You can’t tell my kings we can’t

Mandem we're linking tings in parks

Now I got a tune with Linkin Park

Like goodbye to my old ho’s

Goodbye to the cold roads

I can’t die for my postcode

Young little Mike from the Gold Coast

And now I’m inside with my bro bro’s

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Ilsey Juber/JR Rotem)

Tell me what I’ve gotta do

There’s no getting through to you

Lights are on but nobody’s home

You say I can’t understand

But you’re not giving me a chance

When you leave me where do you go

All the walls that you keep building

All this time that I spend chasing

All the ways that I keep losing you

And the truth is

You turned into someone else

You keep running like the sky is falling

I can whisper I can yell

But I know / yeah I know / yeah I know

I’m just talking to myself

(Ooh) Talking to myself 

(Ooh) Talking to myself

(Ooh) Yeah I know / yeah I know / yeah I know

I admit I made mistakes

But yours might cost you everything

Can’t you hear me calling you home

I got a long way to go

And a long memory

I been searching for an answer

Always just out of reach

Blood on the floor

Sirens repeat

I been searching for the courage

To face my enemies

When they turn down the lights

I hear my battle symphony

All the world in front of me

If my armor breaks

I’ll fuse it back together

Battle symphony

Please just don’t give up on me

And my eyes are wide awake

For my battle symphony

They say that I don’t belong

Say that I should retreat

That I’m marching to the rhythm

Of a lonesome defeat

But the sound of your voice

Puts the pain in reverse

No surrender, no illusions

And for better or worse

If I fall, get knocked down

Pick myself up off the ground

(Mike Shinoda/Justin Parker)

I’ve got an aching head

Echoes and buzzing noises

I know the words we said

But wish I could’ve turned our voices down

This is not black and white

Only organized confusion

I’m just trying to get it right

And in spite of all I should’ve done

I was not mad at you

I was not trying to tear you down

The words that I could’ve used

I was too scared to say out loud

If I cannot break your fall

I’ll pick you up right off the ground

If you felt invisible

I won’t let you feel that now

You didn’t get your way

And it’s an empty feeling

You’ve got a lot to say

And you just want to know you’re being heard

But this is not black and white

There are no clear solutions

And I’m just trying to get it right

HEAVY feat. Kiiara

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Chester Bennington/Julia Michaels/Justin Tranter)

I don’t like my mind right now

Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary

Wish that I could slow things down

I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic

And I drive myself crazy

Thinking everything's about me

Yeah I drive myself crazy

’Cause I can’t escape the gravity

I'm holding on

Why is everything so heavy

To so much more than I can carry

I keep dragging around what's bringing me down

If I just let go, I'd be set free

You say that I'm paranoid

But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me

It’s not like I make the choice

To let my mind stay so f****** messy 

I know I'm not the center of the universe

But you keep spinning round me just the same

Thinking everything’s about me

(Mike Shinoda)

Watching the wings cut through the clouds

Watching the raindrops blinking red and white

Thinking of you back on the ground

There with a fire burning in your eyes

I only halfway apologized

And I’ll be sorry for now

That I couldn’t be around

Sometimes things refuse to go the way we planned

Oh I’ll be sorry for now

There will be a day that you will understand

You will understand

After a while you may forget

But just in case the memories cross your mind

You couldn’t know this when I left

Under the fire of your angry eyes

I never wanted to say goodbye

So I’ll be sorry for now

(Yeah) Stop telling them to pump the bass up

Tried to call home but nobody could wait up

Switching time zones can’t pick the pace up

I just passed out by the time you wake up

The best things come to those who wait

And it’s bound to get rough on any road you take

But don’t you ever have a doubt and make no mistake

I can’t wait to come back when I’m going away

There are things we have to do that we can’t stand

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Chester Bennington/Ross Golan)

I scream at myself when there’s nobody else to fight

I don’t lose / I don’t win / If I’m wrong then I’m halfway right

Used to get high with the dead end kids

Abandoned houses where the shadows lived

I'd never been higher than I was that night

I woke up driving my car

I couldn't see then what I see right now

The road dissolving like an empty vow

Couldn’t remember where I’d been that night

I knew I took it too far

All you said to do was slow down

I remember / now I remember

But I was already gone

I know what I want, but it feels like I’m paralyzed

Halfway right

They told me kid you’re going way too fast

You burn too bright you know you’ll never last

It was bullshit then I guess it makes sense now

They said I’d lose you if I lost control

I just laughed because what do they know

Here I am standing all alone

Because I took it too far

(Mike Shinoda/Francis White)

Should’ve stayed

Were there signs I ignored

Can I help you not to hurt anymore

We saw brilliance when the world was asleep

There are things that we can have

But can’t keep

If they say

Who cares if one more light goes out

In the sky of a million stars

It flickers, flickers

Who cares when someone’s time runs out

If a moment is all we are

Or quicker, quicker

The reminders pull the floor from your feet

In the kitchen, one more chair than you need

Oh, and you’re angry

And you should be

It’s not fair

Just ’cause you can’t see it

Doesn’t mean it isn’t there

(Mike Shinoda/Brad Delson/Ilsey Juber)

Momma always told me don’t you run

Don’t you run with scissors, son

You’re gonna hurt someone

Momma told me look before you leap

Always think before you speak

And watch the friends you keep

Stay along the beaten path

Never listened when she said

Sharp edges have consequences

I guess that I had to find out for myself

Sharp edges have consequences, now

Every scar is a story I can tell

Should’ve played it safer from the start

Loved you like a house of cards

I let it fall apart

But all the things I couldn’t understand

And never could’ve planned

They made me who I am

Put your nose in paperbacks

Instead of smoking cigarettes

These are years you’re never getting back

I never listened when she said

We all fall down

We live somehow

We learn what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger

So stay along the beaten path

No control / no surprise

Tossed the keys to the kingdom

Down that hole in my eye

I'm my own / casualty

I fuck up everything I see

Fighting in futility

We start the final war

Tell me what's worth fighting for

When we know there's nothing more

We take the hand or fist

Just to sell ourselves for this

The path we least resist

I give you what you came for / this is not the same though

Got a different method but I still can bring the pain so

Y'all stuck in that same flow / I got that insane flow

High as y'all can get you're never really in my range though

Yes I'm half anglo / half fried panko

All prime-time rhymer / let the bass bang low

All you fucking lames go / aiming at my name, know

Careful what you shoot because you might hit what you aim for

So what ’cha waiting for

Anticipating more

While you debate what it could take to instigate a war

Yeah I been hated more than time I wasn't hated for

There's nothing they can fucking say they didn't say before

But you could never see it

Your battle's not mine

Wanna skate and play it safe but this is take a shot time

While you're waiting for a purpose I already got mine

While you tell me step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4

And if I do what you demand

(You say) You'll let me understand

(You say) You're gonna hold me to your word

And if I sell myself away

(You say) I'll have no debt to pay

(You say) I'm gonna get what I deserve

YOUR WORD / OBEYED

MY DEBT / REPAID

OUR TRUST / BETRAYED

ALL FOR NOTHING

Kick back there's no other way to say it

So let me break this fucker down for ya

I really don't know ya

You talk but let me show ya where to put your paranoia

You're joking, I don't have a half a sucker bone to throw ya

I'm disgusted, wonder what could've made ya tuck your tail below ya

And no I'm not your soldier I'm not taking any orders

I’m a five star general, infantry controller

Need a lesson?  Let me show ya

Have you checking your composure

While I make you step to it like 1, 2, 3, 4

Tell us all again

What you think we should be

What the answers are

What it is we can't see

How to do what you say

How to fall in line

How there's no other way

But oh, we all know

You're guilty all the same

Too sick to be ashamed

You want to point your finger

But there's no one else to blame

Show us all again

That our hands are unclean

That we're unprepared

That you have what we need

’Cause we cannot be saved

’Cause the end is near

Now there's no other way

And oh, you will know

Yeah, you already know what it is

Can y'all explain what kind of land is this

When a man has plans of being rich

But the bosses' plans is wealthy?

Dirty money scheme, a clean split is nonsense

It's insane

Even corporate hands is filthy

They talk team and take the paper route

All they think about is bank accounts, assets and realty

At anybody's expense

No shame with a clear conscience

No regrets and guilt free

They claim that ain't the way that they built me

The smoke screen before the flame

Knowing as soon as the dough or the deal peak

They say it's time for things to change

Rearrange like good product rebuilt cheap

Anything if it's more to gain

Drained, manipulated like artists, it's real deep

Until no more remains

But I'm still me

Like authentic hip-hop and rock

’Til pop and radio and record companies killed me

Try to force me to stray and obey

And got the gall to say how real can real be

You feel me, we'll see that green could be to blame

Or greedy for the fame

TV or a name

The media, the game

To me you're all the same

You're guilty

instrumental

There's no peace / only war

Victory decides who's wrong or right

It will not cease / only grow

You better be prepared to fight

And it will not apologize

For laying down your life

There's no pain / it will spare

Fear has become your only right

And once you're lost / in your despair

Forever black eternal night

It needs no side to justify

Laying down your life

This is war with no weapons

Marching with no stepping

Murder with no killing

Illin’ every direction

First / no sequel

Do the math / no equal

John with no Yoko:

More power less people 

And no I'm not afraid of that

Print it in your paperback

Every rap is made in fact to act as a delayed attack

Every phrase a razor blade that's saved until they play it back

To slay and leave ’em laying on the pavement

Fade to black

In the wastelands of today

Where there's nothing left to lose

And there's nothing more to take

But you force yourself to choose

Where tomorrow disappears

While the future slips away

And your hope turns into fear

Roll credits you get it the show's done

They're talking for just talking but meaning, they got none

None of ’em come proper they talk like a shotgun but

How many got bred with integrity / not one / so no

I'm not afraid to see you suckers hold a blade to me

Ain't a way to shake the ground I built before you came to be

Take it how you take it / I'm the opposite of vacancy

And this is not negotiation ya'll can hate and wait and see

A fire needs a space to burn

A breath to build a glow

I’ve heard it said a thousand times

But now I know

That you don’t know what you’ve got

Oh you don't know what you've got

No you don't know what you've got

Until it's gone

I thought I kept you safe and sound

I thought I made you strong

But something made me realize

That I was wrong

’Cause finding what you got sometimes

Is finding it alone

And I can finally see your light

When I let go

’Cause you don't know what you've got

’Til it's gone…

It’s your battle to be fought

’Til it's gone

I've seen the blood

I've seen the broken

The lost and the sights unseen

I want a flood

I want an ocean

To wash my confusion clean

I can't resolve this empty story

I can't repair the damage done

We are the fortunate ones

Who've never faced oppression's gun

Imitations of rebellion

We act it out

We wear the colors

Confined by the things we own

We're not without

We're like each other

Pretending we're here alone

And far away, they burn their buildings

Right in the face of the damage done

REBELLION, REBELLION

WE LOST BEFORE THE START

ONE BY ONE WE FALL APART

Imitations of imitations of...

There's a fragile game we play

With the ghosts of yesterday

If we can't let go we'll never say goodbye

No trace of what remains

No stones to mark the graves

Only memories we thought we could deny

There was so much more to lose

Than the pain I put you through

In my carelessness I left you in the dark

And the blood may wash away

But the scars will never fade

At least I know somehow I made a mark

In the dark

In the light

Nothing left

Nothing right

Tearing me apart with / the words you wouldn't say

And suddenly tomorrow's / a moment washed away

’Cause I don't have a reason, and you don't have the time

But we both keep on waiting for something we won't find

The light on the horizon

Was brighter yesterday

With shadows floating over

The scars begin to fade

We said it was forever

But then it slipped away

Standing at the end of

The final masquerade

All I ever wanted / the secrets that you keep

All you ever wanted / the truth I couldn't speak

’Cause I can't see forgiveness, and you can't see the crime

But we both keep on waiting for what we left behind

We stood on the wall

We laughed at the sun

We laughed at the guns

We laughed at it all

And when they

They told us to go

We paid them no mind

Like every other time

But little did we know

I looked for a sign

With flames in my hands

A line in the sand

Between yours and mine

And it came

Like fire from below

Your greed led the call

My flag had to fall

But little did you know

Another day / your truth will come

You’re gonna pay for what you’ve done

You’ll get what’s yours / and face your crime

You’ll tell them give me back what’s mine

Give me back what’s mine

I had never been a coward

I had never seen blood

You had sold me an ocean

And I was lost in the flood

We were counting on a leader

We were driven by need

But couldn't take temptation

And we were blinded by greed

You were steady as a sniper

We were waiting on a wire

So we never saw it coming

When you ran from the fire

You can try intimidation

And you can try to ignore

But when the time comes calling, yeah

You are gonna get yours

And so today / your truth has come

You’ll get what’s yours / you’re out of time

And you will give me back what’s mine

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.” —Robert Oppenheimer

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise

The blood of innocence burning in the skies

I filled my cup with the rising of the sea

And poured it out in an ocean of debris

I’m swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned

So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve

What I don’t deserve

We held our breath when the clouds began to form

But you were lost in the beating of the storm

And in the end we were made to be apart

Like separate chambers of the human heart

So don’t apologize / I’m losing what I don’t deserve     

It’s in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned

The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned

Instrumental

I am not / a pattern to be followed

The pill that I’m on is a tough one to swallow

I’m not a criminal / not a role model

Not a born leader I’m a tough act to follow

I am not / the fortune and the fame

Nor the same person telling you to forfeit the game

I came in the ring like a dog on a chain

And I found out the underbelly’s sicker than it seems

And it seems ugly / but it can get worse

’Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse

’Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works

Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first

And I’m not a robot

I’m not a monkey

I will not dance even if the beat’s funky

Opposite of lazy / far from a punk

Ya’ll ought to stop talking start trying to catch up motherfucker

And all the people say

Lauryn said money change a situation

Big said it increase the complication

Kane said don’t step / I ain’t the one

Chuck said that uzi weigh a motherfuckin’ ton

And I’m just a student of the game that they taught me

Rockin’ every stage in every place that it brought me

I’m awfully underrated / but came here to correct it

And so it ain’t mistaken I’ma state it for the record /

I am / the opposite of wack / opposite of weak

Opposite of slack / synonym of heat

Synonym of crack / closest to a peak

Far from a punk

Ya’ll ought to stop talking / start trying to catch up motherfucker

Oh / When they come for me

Come for me

I’ll be gone

You say / you’re not gonna fight / ’cause no one will fight for you

And you think / there’s not enough love / and no one to give it to

And you’re sure / you’ve hurt for so long / you’ve got nothing left to lose

So you say / you’re not gonna fight / ’cause no one will fight for you

You say / the weight of the world / has kept you from letting go

And you think / compassion’s a flaw / and you’ll never let it show

And you’re sure / you’ve hurt in a way / that no one will ever know

But someday / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go

Hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go

So hold on / the weight of the world / will give you the strength to go

Just hold on / the weight of your world / will give you the strength to go

This is not the end, this is not the beginning

Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision

But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and

Though the words sound steady, something empty’s within ’em

We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air

Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there

’Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and fear

Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear

Waiting for the end to come / wishing I had strength to stand

This was not what I had planned

It’s out of my control

Flying at the speed of light / thoughts were spinning in my head

So many things were left unsaid

It’s hard to let you go

I know what it takes to move on

I know how it feels to lie

All I want to do is trade this life for something new

Holding on to what I haven’t got

Sitting in an empty room / Trying to forget the past

This was never meant to last

I wish it wasn’t so

What was left when that fire was gone

I thought it felt right but that right was wrong

All caught up in the eye of the storm

And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on

And I don’t even know what kind of things I said

My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so

Picking up the pieces now where to begin

The hardest part of ending is starting again

I’m stuck in this bed you made

Alone with a sinking feeling

I saw through the words you said

To the secrets you’ve been keeping

It’s written upon your face

All the lies how they cut so deeply

You can’t get enough you take

And take and take and never say

No / you’ve gotta get it inside

You push it back down / You push it back down

No / you’ll never get it inside

Push it back down

Blood in your eye

You say that it’s not your fault

And swear that I am mistaken

You said it’s not what it seems

No remorse for the trust you’re breaking

You run but then back you fall

Suffocate in the mess you’re making

And take and take and take and take

Are you listening?

Push it back down / You push it back down

Floating down / as colors fill the light

We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite

And floating up / you pass us in the night

A future gazing out / a past to overwrite

So come down / far below

We’ve been waiting to collect the things you know

Come down / far below

We’ve been waiting to collect what you’ve let go

“There’s a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part. You can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all” —Mario Savio

To save face / how low can you go

Talk a lot of game but yet you don’t know

Static on the way / make us all say whoa

The people up top push the people down low 

Get down

And obey every word

Steady getting mine if you haven’t yet heard

Wanna take what I got 

Don’t be absurd

Don’t fight the power

Nobody gets hurt

If you haven’t heard yet then I’m letting you know 

There ain’t shit we don’t run when the guns unload

And no one make a move unless my people say so

Got everything outta control

Now everybody go

Steel unload / final blow

We the animals / take control

Hear us now / clear and true

Wretches and kings we come for you

So keep pace / how slow can you go

Talk a lot of shit and yet you don’t know

Fire on the way / make you all say whoa

The people up top and the people down low

And I’m running it like that

The front of the attack is exactly where I’m at

Somewhere in between

The kick and the hi hat

The pen and the contract

The pitch and the contact

So get with the combat / I’m letting ’em know

There ain’t shit you can say to make me back down no

So / push the button let the whole thing blow

Spinning everything outta control

Steel unload / fire blow

Filthy animals / beat them low

Skin and bone / black and blue

No more this sun shall beat onto you

From the front to the back and the side to side

If you fear what I feel put ’em up real high

“I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice… A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, ‘This way of settling differences is not just.’ This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation’s homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love…” —Martin Luther King Jr.

When you were standing in the wake of devastation

When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown

And with the cataclysm raining down

Insides crying, “Save me now”

You were there impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation

You build up hope but failure’s all you’ve known

Remember all the sadness and frustration

And let it go

And in a burst of light that blinded every angel

As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars

You felt the gravity of tempered grace

Falling into empty space

No one there to catch you in their arms

God bless us every one

We’re a broken people living under loaded gun

And it can’t be outfought

It can’t be outdone

It can’t be outmatched

It can’t be outrun

And when I close my eyes tonight

To symphonies of blinding light

(God bless us every one / we’re a broken people living under loaded gun)

Oh / like memories in cold decay

Transmissions echoing away

Far from the world of you and I

Where oceans bleed into the sky

(God save us every one / will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns)

When you feel you’re alone

Cut off from this cruel world

Your instincts telling you to run

Listen to your heart

Those angel voices

They’ll sing to you / they’ll be your guide back home

When life leaves us blind

Love keeps us kind

It keeps us kind

When you’ve suffered enough

And your spirit is breaking

You’re growing desperate from the fight

Remember you’re loved and you always will be

This melody will bring you right back home

(instrumental intro)

wake in a sweat again

another day’s been laid to waste

in my disgrace

stuck in my head again

feels like i'll never leave this place

there's no escape

i'm my own worst enemy

i've given up

i'm sick of living

is there nothing you can say

take this all away

i'm suffocating

tell me what the fuck is wrong with me

i don't know what to take

thought i was focused but i'm scared

i'm not prepared

i hyperventilate

looking for help somehow somewhere

and you don't care

put me out of my misery

i dreamed i was missing

you were so scared

but no one would listen

cause no one else cared

after my dreaming

i woke with this fear

what am i leaving

when i'm done here

so if you're asking me i want you to know

when my time comes

forget the wrong that i've done

help me leave behind some

reasons to be missed

don't resent me

and when you're feeling empty

keep me in your memory

leave out all the rest

don't be afraid

i've taken my beating

i've shared what i made

i'm strong on the surface

not all the way through

i've never been perfect

but neither have you

forgetting / all the hurt inside you learned to hide so well

pretending / someone else can come and save me from myself

i can't be who you are

here we go for the hundredth time

hand grenade pins in every line

throw 'em up and let something shine

going out of my fuckin mind

filthy mouth / no excuse

find a new place to hang this noose

string me up from atop these roofs

knot it tight so i won't get loose

truth is / you can stop and stare

bled myself out and no one cares

dug the trench out / laid down there

with a shovel up out of reach somewhere

yeah / someone pour it in

make it a dirt dance floor again

say your prayers and stomp it out

when they bring that chorus in

i bleed it out

digging deeper just to throw it away

just to throw it away

i bleed it out / go / stop the show

choppy words and a sloppy flow

shotgun opera / lock and load

cock it back and then watch it go

mama help me / i've been cursed

death is rolling in every verse

candy paint on his brand new hearse

can't contain him / he knows he works

fuck this hurts / i won't lie / doesn't matter how hard i try

half the words don't mean a thing and i know i won't be satisfied

so why try ignoring him

i open up these scars

i'll make you face this

i pull myself apart

i'll make you face this now

i close both locks below the window

i close both blinds and turn away

sometimes solutions aren't so simple

sometimes goodbye's the only way

and the sun will set for you

the sun will set for you

and the shadow of the day

will embrace the world in grey

in cards and flowers on your window

your friends all plead for you to stay

sometimes beginnings aren't so simple

and the shadow after day

in this farewell

there's no blood

there's no alibi

cause i've drawn regret

from the truth

of a thousand lies

so let mercy come

and wash away

what i've done

i'll face myself

to cross out what i've become

erase myself

and let go of what i've done

put to rest

what you thought of me

while i've cleaned this slate

with the hands

of uncertainty

for what i've done

i start again

and whatever pain may come

today this ends

i'm forgiving what i've done

mic up louder i got to say something

lightweights step it aside when we come in

feel it in your chest / the syllables get pumping

people on the street they panic and start running

words on loose leaf sheet complete coming

i jump in my mind and summon the rhyme i'm dumping

healing the blind i promise to let the sun in

sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and

jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping

fuck that / i wanna see some fists pumping

risk something / take back what's yours

say something that you know they might attack you for

cause i'm sick of being treated like i have before

like it's stupid standing for what i'm standing for

like this war's really just a different brand of war

like it doesn't cater to rich and abandon poor

like they understand you in the back of the jet / when you

can't put gas in your tank / and these fuckers are

laughing their way to the bank / cashing the check

asking you to have compassion / have respect

for a leader so nervous in an obvious way

stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

and the rest of the world watching at the end of the day

in their living room laughing like

what did he say

in my living room watching / i am not laughing / cause

when it gets tense i know what might happen

the world is cold / the bold men make action

have to react or get blown into fractions

ten years old / it's something to see / another

kid my age drug under a jeep

taken and bound / and found later under a tree

i wonder if he had thought the next one could be me

do you see / the soldiers / they're out today they

brush the dust from bulletproof vests away

it's ironic / at times like this you pray

but a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday

there's bombs on the busses / bikes / roads

inside your market / your shops / your clothes / my dad

he's got a lot of fear i know

but enough pride inside not to let that show

my brother had a book he would hold with pride

a little red cover with a broken spine

on the back / he hand wrote a quote inside:

"when the rich wage war it’s the poor who die"

and meanwhile / the leader just talks away

the rest of the world watching at the end of the day

both scared and angry like

with hands held high into a sky so blue

as the ocean opens up to swallow you

are you lost / in your lies

do you tell yourself i don't realize

your campaign's a disguise

replaced freedom with fear / you trade money for lives

i'm aware of what you've done

no / no more sorrow

i've paid for your mistakes

your / time is borrowed

your time has come to be replaced

i see pain / i see need

i see liars and thieves abuse power with greed

i had hope / i believed

but i'm beginning to think that i've been deceived

you will pay for what you've done

thieves and hypocrites

your time has come to be erased

my insides all turned to ash / so slow

and blew away as i collapsed / so cold

a black wind took them away / from sight

and held the darkness over day / that night

and the clouds above move closer

looking so dissatisfied

but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

i used to be my own protection / but not now

cause my path had lost direction / somehow

a black wind took you away / from sight

and the ground below grew colder

as they put you down inside

so now you're gone

and i was wrong

i never knew what it was like

to be alone

on a valentine's day

let me apologize to begin with

let me apologize for what i'm about to say

but trying to be genuine

was harder than it seemed

and somehow i got caught up in between

but trying to be someone else

between my pride and my promise

between my lies and how the truth gets in the way

the things i want to say to you

get lost before they come

the only thing that's worse than one is none

but trying to regain your trust

and i cannot explain to you

in anything i say or do or plan

fear is not afraid of you

but guilt's a language you can understand

i cannot explain to you

in anything i say or do

but hope the actions speak the words they can

for my pride and my promise

for my lies and how the truth gets in the way

telling me to go

but hands beg me to stay

your lips say that you love

your eyes say that you hate

there's truth in your lies

doubt in your faith

what you build you lay to waste

all i've got's what you didn't take

so i / i wont be the one

be the one to leave this

and you / you will be alone

alone with all your secrets

your regrets

you promise me the sky

then toss me like a stone

you wrap me in your arms

and chill me to the bone

and doubt in your faith

through the windows

up the stairs

chilling rain

like an ocean

don't want to reach for me do you

i mean nothing to you

the little things give you away

and now there will be no mistaking

the levies are breaking

all you've ever wanted

was someone to truly look up to you

and six feet / underwater

hope decays

generations disappear

washed away

as a nation simply stares

and six feet / underground now

INSTRUMENTAL

sometimes i

need to remember just to breathe

need you to stay away from me

sometimes i’m

in disbelief i didn’t know

need you to go

feel like i trusted you too well

just feel like screaming at myself

need to be alone

forget our memories

forget our possibilities

what you were changing me into

[just give me myself back and]

take all your faithlessness with you

i don’t need you anymore

i don’t want to be ignored

i don’t need one more day

of you wasting me away

with no apologies

when this began

i had nothing to say 

and i’d get lost in the nothingness inside of me

i was confused

and i let it all out to find /that i’m

not the only person with these things in mind

inside of me

but all the vacancy the words revealed

is the only real thing that i’ve got left to feel

nothing to lose

just stuck/hollow and alone

and the fault is my own

i want to heal

i want to feel

what i thought was never real

i want to let go of the pain i’ve held so long

[erase all the pain ’til it’s gone]

like I’m close to something real

i want to find something i’ve wanted all along

somewhere i belong

and i’ve got nothing to say

i can't believe i didn’t fall right down on my face

looking everywhere/only to find that it’s

not the way i had imagined it all in my mind

so what am i

what do i have but negativity

’cause i can’t justify the

way everyone is looking at me

nothing to gain/hollow and alone

the fault is my own

i will never know

myself until i do this on my own

and i will never feel

anything else until my wounds are healed

i will never be

anything ’til i break away from me

and i will break away

i’ll find myself today

i want to feel like i’m

when i pretend

everything is what i want it to be

i look exactly like what you had always wanted to see

i can forget about the criminal i am

stealing second after second just ’cause i know i can/but

i can’t pretend this is the way it will stay/i’m just

trying to bend the truth

i can’t pretend i’m who you want me to be

lying my way from you

[no/no turning back now]

i wanna be pushed aside

so let me go

let me take back my life

i’d rather be all alone

[no turning back now]

anywhere on my own

’cause i can see

the very worst part of you

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

and now you think this person really is me and i’m

[trying to bend the truth]

but the more i push

the more i'm pulling away

this isn’t what i wanted to be

i never thought that what i said

would have you running from me

there are just too many

times that people

have have tried to look inside of me

wondering what i think of you

and i protect you out of courtesy

too many times that i’ve

held on when i needed to push away

afraid to say what was on my mind

afraid to say what i need to say

things that you’ve said about me

when i’m not around

you think having the upper hand

means you’ve got to keep putting me down

but i’ve had too many stand-offs with you

it’s about as much as i can stand

just wait until the upper hand

so many people like me

put so much trust in all your lies

so concerned with what you think

to just say what we feel inside

walk on eggshells all day long

all i know is that all i want

is to feel like i’m not stepped on

there are so many things you say

that make me feel like you’ve crossed the line

what goes up will surely fall

and i’m counting down the time

’cause i've had so many stand-offs with you

so i’m waiting until the upper hand

one minute you’re on top

the next you’re not

watch it drop

making your heart stop

just before you hit the floor

missed your shot

you think you won

and then it’s all gone

i know i’ll never trust a single thing you say

you knew your lies would divide us

but you lied anyway

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

replacing this pain with something numb

it’s so much easier to go

than face all this pain here all alone

something has been taken

from deep inside of me

a secret i’ve kept locked away

no one can ever see

wounds so deep they never show

they never go away

like moving pictures in my head

for years and years they’ve played

if i could change i would

take back the pain i would

retrace every wrong move that i made i would

stand up and take the blame i would

if i could take all the shame to the grave i would

sometimes i remember

the darkness of my past

bringing back these memories

i wish i didn't have

sometimes i think of letting go

and never looking back

and never moving forward so

there would never be a past

just washing it aside

all of the helplessness inside

pretending i don't feel misplaced

is so much simpler than change

little bit of loneliness

a little bit of disregard

a handful of complaints

but i can’t help the fact

that everyone can see these scars

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

to just believe this is real

so i let go

watching you

turn your back like you always do

face away and pretend that I’m not

but i’ll be here

’cause you’re all i got

a little bit insecure

a little unconfident

’cause you don’t understand

i do what i can

but sometimes i don’t make sense

what you never want to say

but i’ve never had a doubt

it’s like no matter what i do

for once just to hear me out

face away and pretend that i’m not

i can’t feel

the way i did before

don’t turn your back on me

i won’t be ignored

time won’t heal

this damage anymore

hear me out now

you're gonna listen to me

like it or not

nothing ever stops all these thoughts

and the pain attached to them

sometimes i wonder why this is happening

it’s like nothing i can do will distract me when

i think of how i shot myself in the back again

’cause from the infinite words i could say /i

put all the pain you gave to me on display/but didn't

realize/instead of setting it free/i

took what i hated and made it a part of me

[it never goes away]

hearing your name/the memories come back again

i remember when it started happening

i’d see you in every thought i had and then

the thoughts slowly found words attached to them

and i knew as they escaped away i was

committing myself to them/and every day i

regret saying those things/’cause now i see /that i

you’ve become a part of me

you’ll always be right here

you’ll always be my fear

i can’t separate myself from what I’ve done

i’ve given up a part of me

I’ve let myself become you

get away from

gimme my space back/you gotta just

everything comes down to memories of

i’ve kept it in but now i’m letting you

i’ve let you go

GET AWAY FROM ME

i’ve let myself become you

i’ve let myself become lost inside these

thoughts of you

giving up a part of me

memories consume

like opening the wound

i’m picking me apart again

you all assume

i’m safe here in my room

[unless i try to start again]

i don’t want to be the one

the battles always choose

’cause inside i realize

that i’m the one confused

i don’t know what’s worth fighting for

or why i have to scream

i don’t know why i instigate

and say what i don’t mean

i don’t know how i got this way

i know it’s not alright

breaking the habit

clutching my cure

i tightly lock the door

i try to catch my breath again

i hurt much more

than anytime before

i had no options left again

i’ll paint it on the walls

’cause i’m the one at fault

i’ll never fight again

and this is how it ends

but now i have some clarity

to show you what i mean

i’ll never be alright

don’t know who to trust

no surprise

everyone feels so far away from me

heavy thoughts sift through dust

and the lies

trying not to break

but i’m so tired of this deceit

every time i try to make myself

get back up on my feet

all i ever think about is this

all the tiring time between

trying to put my trust in you

just takes so much out of me

i take everything from the inside

and throw it all away

’cause i swear/for the last time

i won’t trust myself with you

tension is building inside

heavy thoughts forcing their way

i won’t waste myself on you

waste myself on you

peep the style and the kids checking for it

the number one question is how could you ignore it

we drop right back in the cut

over basement tracks

with raps that got you backing this up like

[rewind that]

we’re just rolling with the rhythm

rise from the ashes of stylistic division

with these non-stop lyrics of life living

not to be forgotten

but still unforgiven

but in the meantime there are those who wanna

talk this and that/so i suppose

it gets to a that point feelings gotta get hurt

and get dirty with the people spreading the dirt

try to give you warning

but everyone ignores me

[told you everything loud and clear]

but nobody’s listening

call to you so clearly

but you don't want to hear me

heart full of pain/head full of stress

handful of anger/held in my chest

and everything left is a waste of time

i hate my rhymes

[but hate everyone else’s more]

i’m riding on the back of this pressure

guessing that it’s better

i can't keep myself together

because all of this stress

gave me something to write on

the pain gave me something i could set my sights on

you never forget the blood sweat and tears

the uphill struggle over years

the fear and trash talking

and the people it was to

and the people that started it

just like you

uphill struggle/blood, sweat and tears

nothing to gain/everything to fear

[coming at you]

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

[caught in the undertow/just caught in the undertow]

every step that i take is another mistake to you

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

afraid to lose control

’cause everything that you thought i would be

has fallen apart right in front of you

and every second i waste is more than i can take

i may end up failing too

you were just like me

with someone disappointed in you

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

I don’t know what stressed me first

Or how the pressure was fed/but

I know just what it feels like

To have a voice in the back of my head

It’s like a face that I hold inside

A face that awakes when I close my eyes

A face watches every time I lie

A face that laughs every time I fall

[And watches everything]

So I know that when it’s time to sink or swim

That the face inside is hearing me/right underneath my skin

It’s like I’m/paranoid lookin’ over my back

It’s like a/whirlwind inside of my head

It’s like I/can’t stop what I’m hearing within

It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I’ve got a face in me

Points out all my mistakes to me

You’ve got a face on the inside too and

Your paranoia’s probably worse

I don’t know what set me off first but I know what I can’t stand

Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is

I can’t add up to what you can

But everybody has a face that they hold inside

A face that awakes when they close their eyes

A face watches every time they lie

A face that laughs every time they fall

So you know that when it’s time to sink or swim

That the face inside is watching you too/right inside your skin

The sun goes down

I feel the light betray me

I cannot take this anymore

I’m saying everything I've said before

All these words they make no sense

I find bliss in ignorance

Less I hear the less you’ll say

But you’ll find that out anyway

Just like before...

Everything you say to me

Takes me one step closer to the edge

And I’m about to break

I need a little room to breathe

’Cause I’m one step closer to the edge

I find the answers aren’t so clear

Wish I could find a way to disappear

All these thoughts they make no sense

Nothing seems to go away

Over and over again

Shut up when I’m talking to you

I woke up in a dream today

To the cold of the static/and put my cold feet on the floor

Forgot all about yesterday

Remembering I’m pretending to be where I’m not anymore

A little taste of hypocrisy

And I’m left in the wake of the mistake/slow to react

Even though you’re so close to me

You’re still so distant/And I can’t bring you back

It’s true/the way I feel

Was promised by your face

The sound of your voice

Painted on my memories

Even if you’re not with me

I’m with you

You/Now I see/Keeping everything inside

You/Now I see/Even when I close my eyes

I hit you and you hit me back

We fall to the floor/the rest of the day stands still

Fine line between this and that

When things go wrong I pretend the past isn’t real

Now I’m trapped in this memory

Even though you’re close to me

No matter how far we’ve come

I can’t wait to see tomorrow

Forfeit the game/Before somebody else

Takes you out of the frame/Puts your name to shame

Cover up your face/You can’t run the race

The pace is too fast/You just won’t last

You love the way I look at you

While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through

You take away if I give in

My pride is broken

You love the things I say I’ll do—

The way I’ll hurt myself again just to get back at you

You take away when I give in

You like to think you’re never wrong

You want to act like you’re someone

You want someone to hurt like you

You want to share what you’ve been through

(You live what you learn)

Crawling in my skin

Consuming all I feel

Fear is how I fall

Confusing what is real

There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface

Consuming/Confusing

This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending

Controlling/I can’t seem

To find myself again

My walls are closing in

[Without a sense of confidence and I’m convinced

That there’s just too much pressure to take]

I’ve felt this way before

So insecure

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me

Distracting/Reacting

Against my will I stand beside my own reflection

It’s haunting how I can’t seem...

Graffiti decorations

Underneath a sky of dust

A constant wave of tension

On top of broken trust

The lessons that you taught me

I learned were never true

Now I find myself in question

[They point the finger at me again]

Guilty by association

[You point the finger at me again]

Paper bags and angry voices

Under a sky of dust

Another wave of tension

Has more than filled me up

All my talk of taking action

These words were never true

I wanna run away

Never say good-bye

I wanna know the truth

Instead of wondering why

I wanna know the answers

No more lies

I wanna shut the door

And open up my mind

Gonna run away

What do I do to ignore them behind me?

Do I follow my instincts blindly?

Do I hide my pride/from these bad dreams

And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?

Do I/sit here and try to stand it?

Or do I/try to catch them red-handed?

Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,

Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?

Because I can’t hold on/when I’m stretched so thin

I make the right moves but I’m lost within

I put on my daily facade but then

I just end up getting hurt again

By 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

[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]

How do you think/I’ve lost so much

I’m so afraid/I’m 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

It starts with

One thing/I don’t know why

It doesn’t even matter how hard you try

Keep that in mind/I designed this rhyme

To explain in due time

Time is a valuable thing

Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings

Watch it count down to the end of the day

The clock ticks life away

It’s so unreal

Didn’t look out below

Watch the time go right out the window

Trying to hold on/but didn’t even know

Wasted it all just to

Watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried/it all fell apart

What it meant to me/will eventually/be a memory/of a time when

I tried so hard

And got so far

But in the end

It doesn’t even matter

I had to fall

And lose it all

Doesn’t even matter how hard you try

To remind myself how

In spite of the way you were mocking me

Acting like I was part of your property

Remembering all the times you fought with me/I’m surprised

It got so [far]

Things aren’t the way they were before

You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore

Not that you knew me back then

But it all comes back to me

You kept everything inside and even though I tried/it all fell apart

What it meant to me/will eventually/be a memory/of a time when I

I put my trust in you

Pushed as far as I can go

And for all this

There’s only one thing you should know…

I watch how the

Moon sits in the sky/in the dark night

Shining with the light from the sun

The sun doesn’t give life to the moon assuming

The moon’s gonna owe it one

It makes me think of how you act to me/you do

Favors and then rapidly/you just

Turn around and start asking me/about

Things that you want back from me

I’m sick of the tension/sick of the hunger

Sick of you acting like I owe you this

Find another place /to feed your greed—

While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place

I hate when you say you don’t understand

[You’ll see it's not meant to be]

I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy

A place for my head

Maybe someday I’ll be just like you/and

Step on people like you do and

Run away the people I thought I knew

I remember back then who you were

You used to be calm/used to be strong

Used to be generous /but you should’ve known

Wear out your welcome/now you see

How quiet it is/all alone/I’m so

Sick of the tension/sick of the hunger

Find another place/to feed your greed—

While/I find a place to rest

You try to take the best of me

From the top to the bottom

Bottom to top I stop

At the core I’ve forgotten

In the middle of my thoughts

Taken far from my safety

The picture is there

The memory won’t escape me

But why should I care

There’s a place so dark you can’t see the end

[Skies cock back] and shock that which can’t defend

The rain then sends dripping/an acidic question

Forcefully, the power of suggestion

Then with the eyes tightly shut/looking through the rust and rot

And dust/a spot of light floods the floor

And pours over the rusted world of pretend

The eyes ease open and it’s dark again

In the memory you’ll find me

Eyes burning up

The darkness holding me tightly

Until the sun rises up

Moving all around/screaming of the ups and downs

Pollution manifested in perpetual sound

The wheels go ’round and the sunset creeps past the

Street lamps, chain-link and concrete

A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats

On down the street till the wind is gone

The memory now is like the picture was then

When the paper’s crumpled up it can’t be perfect again

Now you got me caught in the act

You bring the thought back

I’m telling you that

I see it right through you

I’ve lied/to you

The same way that I always do

This is/the last smile

That I’ll fake for the sake of being with you

[Everything falls apart/even the people who never frown/eventually break down]

The sacrifice of hiding in a lie

[Everything has to end/you’ll soon find we’re out of time left

To watch it all unwind]

The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away

Why I played myself this way

Now I see your testing me pushes me away

I’ve tried/like you

To do everything you wanted to

This is/the last time

I’ll take the blame for the sake of being with you

Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Opens New Chapter With Raucous Single ‘Already Over’

  • By Emily Zemler

Emily Zemler

Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda has released a new solo single, “Already Over.” Along with the track, the musician dropped a hand-painted visual for the guitar-driven song created by Dusty Deen and incorporating images by photographer Mike Miller.

“‘Already Over’ came to me as I was sitting with my favorite guitar in my hands—the same guitar I used on songs from ‘What I’ve Done’ to ‘In My Head,’” Shinoda said in a statement. “There was a familiar DNA to the song that I think Linkin Park fans will recognize. For me, it creates a bridge from the past to a blurry but exciting future.”

“Already Over” follows on the heels of Shinoda’s single “In My Head,” released for Scream VI , the sixth movie in the horror film franchise. The track, which featured Kailee Morgue, appeared in the film and landed in the Top 10 at alternative radio.

“I think there’s a shift happening from large groups to smaller scale,” he explained of how the industry landscape is changing. “We’re already prioritizing a more direct and focused relationship in a fanbase, where it’s more about closer connection over quantity. People are overloaded with the pressures and annoyances of the current version of social media. We’re tired of it. I think we’re headed deeper into tribalism.”

Earlier this year, Linkin Park released Meteora 20th Anniversary Edition , which featured single “Lost.” It also included unreleased track “Fighting Myself,” a vintage Linkin Park number, with Shinoda spitting angst-ridden bars over simmering production, before late singer Chester Bennington bursts in with a monster chorus, paired with arena-sized guitars.

Where Is Linkin Park Now?

After the loss of Chester Bennington, how does Linkin Park continue?

The music community and the world lost one of the best voices when Linkin Park's Chester Bennington tragically passed away in 2017, just a couple of weeks after another rockstar and one of his best friends, Chris Cornell died in a similar way. Since Bennington's death, the fate of the band has been questionable and fans are still left wondering if they'll get a new singer, even though no one could replace the first. If they don't want a new singer, what does that mean for the band?

There've been a couple of bands throughout music history who've had their lead singer pass away and have dealt with the same problems with continuing without them . Queen, Alice in Chains, and INXS are just a couple of bands who have been successful. The latter even created a reality show to find their new singer. Linkin Park will be no different, as they continue to make music and carry on the legacy of Bennington. But it turns out, we may be hearing from the band sooner than we thought.

Updated on November 1, 2021, by Michael Chaar: Following Chester Bennington's tragic suicide in 2017, fans wondered what would happen to Linkin Park. Well, the band went on a hiatus, and rightfully so, however, rest assured, they are now going anywhere. Linkin Park has announced that while they are, in fact, working on new music and possibly touring, they still "don't have the math worked out, " said band member, Mike Shinoda back on October 29, 2021. While new music is on the horizon, Linkin Park made it clear that fans shouldn't expect any type of hologram experience in honor of Chester. Furthermore, Shinoda revealed that while they aren't actively on the hunt for a new frontman, if they come across someone worth the spot, then they'll definitely consider it.

Linkin Park Returns Following Bennington's Death

After recording seven albums, including Hybrid Theory , which was certified diamond by the RIAA, winning countless awards, including two Grammys, and achieving international success as one of the best bands in rock history, Linkin Park was left without its leading man.

Vocalist/rhythm guitarist Mike Shinoda, lead guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave Farrell, DJ/turntablist Joe Hahn, and drummer Rob Bourdon were left shocked after his death and without words.

When Bennington's death was announced , the band had just released a new music video for their single "Talking to Myself" earlier that day. So you could imagine how shocked fans were that they'd gotten new music and the news of Bennington's death all in one day.

The next day, the band canceled the rest of their One More Light World Tour , and shortly after, released a statement that said, "Our hearts are broken. The shockwaves of grief and denial are still sweeping through our family as we come to grips with what has happened."

After they held a tribute concert, the band went on a hiatus to take time and grieve their singer, and only recently have they've started to come out of it.

There Will Be No Hologram Tours, But There Will Be New Music Coming

Something that's become fashionable in the music industry is hologram tours. Fans can now see certain deceased artists through the new invention. But Linkin Park has said they will not pretend Bennington is not gone and will instead carry on some other way.

"That would be the worst," Shinoda said about doing a hologram tour. "I can’t do it. I don’t know what we’re going to do, but we’ll figure it out eventually.”

In January 2018, Shinoda said that the band will live on in some way, he just didn't know how exactly. During a Q&A on Twitter, he said, "I have every intention on continuing with LP, and the guys feel the same. We have a lot of rebuilding to do, and questions to answer, so it’ll take time."

That March, however, Shinoda seemed uncertain about Linkin Park's future.

"I’m unable to say what will happen with the band," told Vulture. "There’s really just no answer, and it’s funny because if I even say anything about the band’s future, that becomes the headline, which is stupid because the answer is there is no answer. Fans think they want to know what the future is: Believe me, I want to know what the answer is. But there just isn’t one."

We got some more hope in 2019 when Shinoda told Rock Antenne, "We all thrive making and performing music. I know the other guys, they love to be on stage, they love to be in a studio, and so to not do that would be like ... I don’t know, almost like unhealthy."

The Band Isn't Actively Looking For A New Singer

And of course, they were eager to get back to the fans. "As long as that connection and interest is there, I think that is our driving force to figure out Linkin Park," he explained.

"It’s not my goal to look for a new singer. If it does happen, it has to happen naturally. If we find someone that is a great person and a good stylistic fit, I could see trying to do some stuff with somebody. I would never want to feel like we are replacing Chester."

After he took time to grieve, Shinoda was advised to get back into the studio to help heal, and he did. Shortly after he was starting his first solo tour.

Linkin Park Has Been Writing New Music

In April 2020, bassist Dave Farrell revealed the band had started writing new music before the pandemic started.

​"For us, with the band, we’ve been kinda writing and doing that before this all started, so casually at this point we’re doing Zoom meetings to eat lunch together and say, ​‘Hi.’ But we’re not able to get together and write or do that whole bit. So working at home a little bit, working up ideas," he told Dan Nicholl.

"I’ve been playing a lot of drums, just to do something new – I’ve been doing that for the last year, year and a half, and purposely making as much noise as possible to create my own space in the house."

This past August, the band finally re-released their song "She Couldn't," which was included on the 20th-anniversary edition of Hybrid Theory, and this past January they released a remix of "One Step Closer." Shinoda was right; making more music had to come naturally in the end.

About Linkin Park

Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. The band's current lineup comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Mike Shinoda, lead guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave Farrell, DJ/turntablist Joe Hahn and drummer Rob Bourdon, all of whom are founding members. Vocalists Mark Wakefield and Chester Bennington are former members of the band. Categorized as alternative rock, Linkin Park's earlier music spanned a fusion of heavy metal and hip hop, while they later transitioned into more electronica and pop influenced music.

Formed in 1996, Linkin Park rose to international fame with their debut studio album, Hybrid Theory (2000), which became certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Released during the peak of the nu metal scene, the album's singles' heavy airplay on MTV led the singles "One Step Closer", "Crawling" and "In the End" all to chart highly on the Mainstream Rock chart; the latter crossed over to the pop chart. Their second album, Meteora (2003), continued the band's success. The band explored experimental sounds on their third album, Minutes to Midnight (2007). By the end of the decade, Linkin Park was among the most successful and popular rock acts.

The band continued to explore a wider variation of musical types on their fourth album, A Thousand Suns (2010), layering their music with more electronic sounds. The band's fifth album, Living Things (2012), combined musical elements from all of their previous records. Their sixth album, The Hunting Party (2014), returned to a heavier rock sound, and their seventh album, One More Light (2017), was their first pop-oriented record. Linkin Park went on a hiatus when longtime lead vocalist Bennington died by suicide in July 2017. In April 2020, bassist Dave Farrell revealed the band was working on new music.

Linkin Park is among the best-selling bands of the 21st century and the world's best-selling music artists, having sold over 100 million records worldwide. They have won two Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, 10 MTV Europe Music Awards and three World Music Awards. In 2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth-greatest band of the music video era and the third-best of the new millennium. Billboard ranked Linkin Park No. 19 on the Best Artists of the Decade list. In 2012, the band was voted as the greatest artist of the 2000s in a Bracket Madness poll on VH1. In 2014, the band was declared as "The Biggest Rock Band in the World Right Now" by Kerrang! .

Mike Shinoda Drops Linkin Park 2023 Bombshell

linkin park new tour

There had been talks that Linkin Park’s Meteora 20th anniversary album will be released in 2023. It has come to light that Mike Shinoda revealed that “2023 is going to be an exciting year” and it has been confirmed for “Meteora 20th.” He also revealed that “things that are…of interest to you”

Linkin Park has been on a hiatus after the band frontman Chester Bennington passed away by suicide at age 41 in July, 2017. Five years have passed since his tragic death and 21st July marked the fifth year in 2022. His sister Tobi Bennington took to her Instagram account and posted a picture that saw her with her ‘Chaz.’ She wrote that the ‘truth’ will come out about his death.

To commemorate the five-year anniversary of his death on Wednesday, the Linkin Park frontman’s widow shared a heartfelt  TikTok  about the last time she kissed Chester.

Machine Gun Kelly also paid tribute to Chester Bennington at his show in London’s Wembley Arena on October 1, last year.

In 2017, Machine Gun Kelly was supposed to open for LP on the North American leg of their 2017 world tour after performing with them in Poland on the band’s One More Light world tour; the outing was canceled following Bennington’s passing.

During his gig, MGK addressed the audience to say:

“The last time I saw him was here in Europe, so I encourage you, because life is short, to go live this life. I know it’s hard, man. I know this shit is f***ing hard. But nights like tonight make life worth it.”

The artist then performed “Glass House”, where the lyrics address several late artists, one of which is Chester. Kelly’s next show is at Birmingham, England’s Utilita Arena on Tuesday night (October 4).

Metal band Korn to hit St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center on 30th anniversary tour

M etal band Korn will celebrate 30 years in the business with a 25-city fall tour that ends Oct. 27 with a stop at St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster . Neither the promoter nor the venue announced prices. Citi cardholders have access to a presale that runs through 10 p.m. Thursday. Gojira and Spiritbox are also on the bill.

Guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer, bassist Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu and drummer David Silveria formed Korn after the lead singer quit the trio’s previous band, L.A.P.D. Silveria recruited guitarist Brian “Head” Welch and vocalist Jonathan Davis to join what would become Korn. (The backward letter R in their logo was inspired by Toys R Us as several band members had previously worked for the retailer.)

Korn’s self-titled 1994 debut album set the tone for the band’s career, with lyrics about child abuse and bullying and a sound that fused metal and hip-hop. The group pioneered what would become known as nu metal, opening the doors for the likes of Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park, Kid Rock, Staind and Disturbed.

The singles “Got the Life” and “Freak on a Leash” from Korn’s third album, 1998’s “Follow the Leader,” broke through to mainstream audiences and Korn enjoyed a run for several years as one of the country’s biggest rock bands.

While they never again reached that peak of popularity, Korn has remained a staple of rock radio, most recently with “Start the Healing” and “Worst Is on Its Way” from the group’s 14th album “Requiem.”

Things to do | rock yard at fantasy springs resort casino adds free tribute concerts and themed drinks, the outdoor rock yard concert series returns to indio with shows on friday and saturday nights..

linkin park new tour

Plenty of tribute acts come through Southern California casinos, but only a few of those shows are free.

The Rock Yard Concert Series is back at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, with bands covering the greatest hits of Red Hot Chili Peppers , Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen and more. In addition, the series features Rock Yard on Steroids, which has featured past acts such as Fishbone and Danny Seraphine of Chicago . All concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and end at 12:30 a.m.

“The bigger name acts get people excited, but I think they still have an affinity for tribute bands because that’s how the (concert series) was born,” said Kirk Zaharris, executive director of entertainment at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino.

While the event is free, guests can enjoy themed cocktails and beer specials from $10-$15. The newest addition to the menu is the Rock Yard Craft Margarita, which features Patron Tequila. The mixologists even crafted a Blender Bike Patron Margarita where they build the cocktail in the blender while guests peddle on a bike that activates the blender.

“We’re also toying with the menu and trying some other beer specials that the fans are loving,” Zaharris said.

Here are the acts kicking performing from March through May. The casino will add more dates in the coming months.
