Castle Of Glass

Album: Living Things (2012)
  • Take me down to the river bend
    Take me down to the fighting end
    Wash the poison from off my skin
    Show me how to be whole again

    Fly me up on a silver wing
    Past the black where the sirens sing
    Warm me up in a nova's glow
    And drop me down to the dream below

    'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see

    Bring me home in a blinding dream
    Through the secrets that I have seen
    Wash the sorrow from off my skin
    Show me how to be whole again

    'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see

    'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything else I need to be

    'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
    Hardly anything there for you to see
    For you to see
    For you to see Writer/s: Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington, Dave Farrell, Joseph Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Robert G. Bourdon

  • Logan from East Prairie, MoI fell in love with this song when I t was featured in the 2012 game "Medal of Honor: Warfighter". which obviously, like the 2010 Medal of Honor Game, is about Tier One SOCOM Operators, and is dedicated to authenticity.
  • Shadow from Depression, VaI honestly can't believe this is only the 1st comment. This is my new 2nd fav song by them, it's their first really dancey song- that I've heard, anyways. It's beautiful. I agree with both Chester and Mike's POV's, I saw it a different way, too. I saw it as a big, towering pile of broken glass, after a long battle, and a little shard of broken glass not making a difference to most people. This song describes me in every way. I love it!!!! 5/5
