  • Lyrics
  • 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 black out 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
    You can't get enough you take
    And take and take and take and take
    Fuck it are you listening?

    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
    You push it back down
    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
    Black out blood in your eye

    Floating down, as colors fill the light
    We look up from the ground
    In fields of paper white
    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

    Come down
    Oh
    Come down
    Oh
    Come down
    Oh
    Come down
    Oh
    Come down

  • Shadow from Depression, VaThis song? Intense, insane, and Chester Bennington can, unlike some people say, rap like nobody's business. It's awesome :D
  • Shadow from Depression, VaI agree, Rick Rubin is awesome. But Chester Bennington is my all-time singer/songwrite IDOl, with Mike Shinoda as a close second. Linkin Park FOREVER!
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjChester's lyrics are actually very coherent, while Mike's lyrics are more abstract. Chester seems to be talking to someone who broke his trust, Mike to me seems to be talking to either God, or a kindred spirit of his.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjRick Rubin's a freakin' genius!
