  • Lyrics
  • This defiant song features a guest spot from Helmet vocalist and guitarist Page Hamilton. Vocalist Chester Bennington told New Zealand's 3 News, "When we got Page in, Mike [Shinoda, co-vocalist and producer] had written this chorus and sang it, and his voice had this tone, and it was unlike anything I'd heard from him before. And I was like, 'Dude, this is crazy, this sounds like a Helmet song! It's cool!' And we were like, 'Dude, why don't we see if we can get like Page in here?' You know? And if that's why the song says it's feeling like it should be, then why don't we just go straight to the source."
