Linkin Park

Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 [1] and multi-platinum in several other countries. Their following studio album Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity [2] work around the world. In 2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth-greatest band of the music video era [3] and the third-best of the new millennium. Billboard ranked Linkin Park No. 19 on the Best Artists of the [4] Decade chart. The band was recently voted as the greatest band of 00s' in a the Bracket Madness poll on VH1. Both Hybrid Theory and Meteora combine the alternative metal, nu metal, and rap rock sound with influences and elements from hip-hop, alternative rock, and electronica, utilizing programming and synthesizers. William Ruhlmann from Allmusic regarded it as "a Johnny-come-lately to an already overdone musical style whereas Rolling Stone described their song "Breaking the Habit" as "risky, beautiful art" The vocal interplay between Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda plays as a major part within Linkin Park's music, with Bennington being the lead vocalist and Shinoda as the rapping vocalist. On Linkin Park's third album, Minutes to Midnight, Shinoda sings lead vocals on "In Between", "Hands Held High", and on the B-side "No Roads Left". On numerous songs from band's fourth album, A Thousand Suns, such as the album's four singles, both Shinoda and Bennington sing. On most of the record's tracks, the band notably used electronic drumbeats along with outro drumbeats. The album has been regarded as a turning point in the band's musical career by notable critics, some noting the band utilizing the electronic rock genre. Studio albums

Burn in down The cycle repeated As explosions broken in the sky All that i needed Was the one thing i couldn't find And you were there at the turn Waiting to left me know We're building it up To break it back down We're building it up To burn it down We can't wait To burn it to the ground The colors conflicted As the flames Climbed into the clouds I wanted to fix this But couldn't stop From tearing it down And you were there at the turn Caught in the burning glow And i was there at the turnt Waiting to let you know We're building it up To break it back down We're building it up To burn it down You told me yes You held mi high And i believed When you told that lie I played soldier You played king And struck me down When i kissed that ring You lost that right To hold that crown I built you up But you let me down So when you fall I'll take my turn And fan the flames As your blazes burn And you were there at the turn Waiting to left me know We're building it up To break it back down We're building it up To burn it down We can't wait To burn it to the ground

When you fall I'll take my turn And fan the flames As your blazes burn We can't wait To burn it to the ground When you fall I'll take my turn And fan the flames As your blazes burn We can't wait To burn it to the ground Lost in the echo (yeah) (yo) You were that foundation Never gonna be another one, no. I followed, so taken so conditioned I could never let go Then sorrow, then sickness then the shock when you flip it on me So hollow, so vicious so afraid I couldn't let myself see That I could never be held Back up, no, I'll hold myself. Check the rep, yep you know my rail Forget the rest let them know my hell Damn, I'm back yep, my stories sell, Kept respect up the vets stay their, Let the rest be to tell they tale That I was there saying Coro And these promises broken deep, feeble Each word gets lost in the echo So one last lie I can see through This time I finally let you Go, go, go. Test my will, test my heart Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up Y'all go hard, I go smart How's it working out for y'all in the back, huh? I've seen that frustration big cross, their lost but don't know And I've come back unshaken

Let down, I've lived and let go So you can let it be known I don't hold back, I hold my own I can't be mad, I can't be calm I can't sing flat, it aint my tone I can't fall back, I came too far Hold myself up and love my scars Let the bells ring wherever they are Cause I was there saying... Coro And these promises broken deep, feeble Each word gets lost in the echo So one last lie I can see through This time I finally let you go!!! Go, go, go. No, you can tell 'em all now I don't back up, I don't back down I don't fold up, and I don't bow I don't roll over, don't know how I don't care where the enemies are Can't be stopped, all I know: Go Hard! Won't forget how I got this far And every time, saying (Coro) And these promises broken deep, feeble Each word gets lost in the echo So one last lie I can see through This time I finally let you Go, go, go. (Go, go, go) Numb I'm tired of being what you want me to be feeling so faithless, lost under the surface I don't know what you're expecting of me put under the pressure of walking in your shoes... caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow...

Every step that I take is another mistake to you... caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow... I've become so numb, I can't feel you there I've become so tired, so much more aware by 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 cuz everything that you thought I would be has fallen apart right in front of you... caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow... every step that i take is another mistake to you... caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow... And every second i waste is more than I can take! I've become so numb, I can't feel you there I've become so tired, so much more aware by becoming this all i want to do is be more like me and be less like you And I know I may end the failing too but i know you were just like me with someone disappointed in you... I've become so numb, I can't feel you there I've become so tired, so much more aware by becoming this all I want to do is be more like me and be less like you I've become so numb, I can't feel you there I'm tired of being what you want me... I've become so numb, I can't feel you there I'm tired of being what you want me. Points of authority
