  • This song is about a person who tried to control someone through intimidation and aggression. Chester Bennington was molested by acquaintances when he was young, which influenced the song. >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjWhen Brad layed down the original guitar track for this song, Mike cut it up and pasted the chords back ina different order. When Brad heard how it sounded, he loved it and called Mike a genuis and compared him to Trent Reznor.
  • Keyondra Brooks from Atlanta, Gaum i know he didnt have a good childhood and that he suffered from sexual abuse from a "friend".I also know that he was addicted to drugs once.I actually thought that Papercut was about being on drugs,but Idk.their songs are pretty much bout anything thats what makes them good.hes been divorced also
  • Serenity from West Tisbury, MaThis is my favorite song at the moment. I didn't actually /listen/ to the lyrics, so I didn't know the actual meaning behind them.

    It's got a good message, since I tend to get pushed around by my so called, "Friends" (like Ashton).
  • Ashton from Cumberland, NjI love this song. It's one of my favorite songs that they play. When I was younger a lot of my classmates and "friends" used to walk all over me. Ever since I started listening to this song I've rebeled against that.
