Wake

[No lyrics]

. . .


Wake in a sweat again
Another days 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 feeling
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 no one cares

I'm my own worst enemy
I've given up, I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong, with me

(Screaming)

Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my
Put me out of my fucking miseryyyyyyyyyyyyy

I've given up, I'm sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away I'm suffocating
Tell me what the fuck is wrong, with me

. . .


I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
'Cuz 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

(Chorus:)
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
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

So if you're asking me I want you to know

(Chorus)

Forgetting
All the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

(Chorus)

Forgetting
All the hurt inside you've learned to hide so well
Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can't be who you are

I can't be who you are

. . .



[Mike Shinoda]

Yea here we go for the hundredth time,
Hand grenade pins in every line,
Throw 'em up and let something shine.
Going out of my fucking 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,
Run myself out and no one cares.
Dug a trench out, laid down there
With a shovel up out to reach somewhere.
Yea someone pour it in,
Make it a dirt dance floor again.
Say your prayers and stomp it out,
When they bring that chorus in.

[Chester Bennington]

(Chorus)
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away.

[Mike Shinoda]

I bleed it out.
Go, stop the show.
Chop your words in a sloppy flow.
Shotgun I pump, lock and load,
Cock it back and then watch it go.
Mama help me, I've been cursed,
Death is rolling in every verse.
Candypaint on his brand new hearse.
Can't contain him, he knows he works.
I hope this hurts, I won't mind.
Doesn't matter how hard I try.
Half the words don't mean a thing,
And I know that I won't be satisfied.
So why, try ignoring him.
Make your dirt dance floor again.
Say your prayers and stomp it out,
When they bring that chorus in.

[Chester Bennington]

(Chorus)
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away.

I bleed it out.
I've opened up these skies,
I'll make you face this.
I pulled myself so far,
I'll make you face this now.

I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away.

I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away.
I bleed it out,
Digging deeper just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away,
Just to throw it away.

I bleed it out. [3X]

. . .



[Chester Bennington]

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,
And the sun will set for you.

Pink cards and flowers on your window,
Your friends all plead for you to stay.
Sometimes beginnings 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,
And the sun will set for you.

And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

[Guitar solo]

And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in grey,
And the sun will set for you.

. . .


In this farewell
There is no blood
There is 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 clean this slate
With the hands
Of uncertainty
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

For what I've done
I'll start again
And whatever thing
May come
Today this ends
I'm forgiving

Whaaaaat I've done

I'll face myself
To cross out
What I've become
Erase myself
And let go of
What I've done

What I've done

Forgiving what I've done

. . .



Turn my mic up louder,
I got to say something.
Light Weight step it aside,
When we coming.
Feel it in your chest,
Your sylicals get pumping.
People on the street,
They panic and start running.
Words on loose leaf,
She complete coming.
I jump on my mind,
I summon the rhyme of dumping.
Feeling the blind,
I promise to let the sun in.
Sick of the dark ways,
We march to the drumming.
Jump when they tell us
They want to see jumping.
Fuck that, I want to
See some fist pumping.
Risk something.
Take backwards yours
Say something that you know
They might attack you for
Cause I'm sick of being treated
Like I have before.
Like a stupid standing for
What I'm standing for.
Like this war is just like
Another brand of war.
Like a dozen caded rich
And an abandoned poor.
Like they understand you
In the back of the jet,
When you can't put gas in your tank.
These fuckers are laughing their way
To the bank and cashing their check
Asking you to have compassion and to have some respect.

For a leader so nervous
In unobvious ways
Stuttering and mumbling
For nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world
Watching at the end of the day
In the living room laughing
Like what do we say?

Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen

In my living room watching,
But I am not laughing.
'Cause when it gets tense,
I know what might happen.
The world is cold,
The bold men take action.
Have to react,
To getting blown into fractions.
10 years old is something to see,
Another kid my age drugged under a G,
Taking about and found later under a tree,
I wonder if he thought the next one could be me.
Do you see?
The soldiers that are out today.
That brush the dust with bulletproof vests away.
It's ironic.
At times like this you pray,
But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday.
There's bombs in the buses, bikes roads,
Inside your markets,your shops, your coves,
My dad, he's got a lot of fear I know
But enough pride inside to let that show.
My brother had a book he would hold with pride
A little red cover with a broken spine.
In the back he hand wrote a quote inside,
When the rich wage war, it's the poor who die.

Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling
For nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world
Watching at the end of the day
Both scared and angry
Like what do we say?

Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen, Amen.

These times lift high
Into a sky so blue
The ocean opens up
To swallow you.(X6)

. . .


Are you lost... in your lies?
Do you tell yourself I don't realize?
Your crusade'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!

No, no more sorrow!
I've paid for your mistakes!
Your... time is borrowed!
Your time has come to be replaced!

Thieves and hypocrites!
Thieves and hypocrites!
Thieves and hypocrites!

No, no more sorrow!
I've paid for your mistakes!
Your... time is borrowed!
Your time has come to be replaced!

No, no more sorrow!
I've paid for your mistakes!
Your... time is borrowed!
Your time has come to be... replaced!
Your time has come to be... replaced!
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 now the darkness over day
That night

And the clouds above moved closer
Looking so dissatisfied
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

I used to be my own protection
But not now
Cause my path has lost direction
Somehow
A black wind took you away
From sight
And now the darkness over day
That night

And the clouds above moved closer
Looking so dissatisfied
And the ground below grew colder
As they put you down inside
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you're gone
And I was wrong
I never knew what it was like
To be alone

On a Valentine's Day (x4)
On a Valentine's Day (I used to be my own protection)
On a Valentine's Day (But not now)
On a Valentine's Day (Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)
On a Valentine's Day (I used to be my own protection)
On a Valentine's Day (But not now)
On a Valentine's Day (Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)

. . .



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

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between, between

My pride
And my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
And things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to regain your trust was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between, between

My pride
And my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
And things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none

And I cannot explain to you
And 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
And 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
The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none
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
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none

. . .



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.
There's truth in your lies,
Doubt in your faith.
All I've got's what you didn't take.

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

You promised me the sky,
Then tossed me like a stone.
You wrap me in your arms,
And chill me to the bone.

There's truth in your lies,
Doubt in your faith.
All I've got's what you didn't take.

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

[Guitar solo]

So I, I won't be the one,
Be the one to leave this,
In pieces.
And you, you will be alone,
Alone with all your secrets,
And regrets.
Don't lie.

. . .



Water gray, through the windows of the stairs,
Chilling me, like an ocean everywhere,
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 levees are breaking.

All you've ever wanted,
Was someone to truly look up to you.
And six feet underwater I do.

Hope decays, generations disappear,
Washes away, as a nation simply stares.
Don't want to reach for me do you?
I mean nothing to you.
The little things give you away.

But now there will be no mistaking,
The levees are breaking.

All you've ever wanted,
Was someone to truly look up to you.
And six feet underwater I do.

All you've ever wanted,
Was someone to truly look up to you.
And six feet underground I do.
Now I do.

Little things give you away.

. . .


Standing alone with no direction
How did I fall so far behind
Why am I searching for perfection
Knowing it's something I won't find

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because
I run
'Til the silence splits me open
I run
'Til it puts me underground
'Til I have no breath
and no roads left but one

When did I lose my sense of purpose
Can I regain what's lost inside
Why do I feel like I deserve this
Why does my pain look like my pride
Ohhh

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because
I let myself down

In my fear and flaws
I run
'Til the silence splits me open
I run
'Til it puts me underground
'Til I have no breath
and no roads left but one

No roads left but one

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because
I run
and the silence splits me open
I run
and it puts me underground

But there's no regret
and no roads left to run
