  • This is war with no weapons
    Marchin with no steppin'
    Murder with no killin'
    Illin' every direction
    First, no sequel
    Do the math, no equal
    John with no Yoko
    More power, less people

    And no, I'm not afraid of that
    Print it in your paperback
    Every rap is made in fact
    To act as a delayed attack
    Every phrase a razor blade
    That's saved until they play it back
    To slay and leave em laying on the pavement
    Bang, fade to black

    In the wastelands of today
    When there's nothing left to lose
    And and there's nothing more to take
    But you force yourself to choose

    In the wastelands of today
    Where tomorrow disappears
    While the future slips away
    And your hope turns into fear
    In the wastelands of today

    Roll credits, you get it
    The show's done
    They're talking for just talking
    But meaning, they got none
    None of 'em come proper
    They talk like a shotgun
    But how many got bred with integrity?
    Not one

    So no, I'm not afraid
    To see these suckers hold a blade to me
    Ain't no way to shake the ground
    I built before you came to be
    Take it how you take it
    I'm the opposite of vacancy
    And this is not negotiation
    Y'all can hate and wait and see

    In the wastelands of today
    When there's nothing left to lose
    And and there's nothing more to take
    But you force yourself to choose

    In the wastelands of today
    When tomorrow disappears
    When the future slips away
    And your hope turns into fear
    In the wastelands of today

    In the wastelands of today
    When there's nothing left to lose
    And and there's nothing more to take
    But you force yourself to choose

    In the wastelands of today
    When tomorrow disappears
    When the future slips away
    And your hope turns into fear
    In the wastelands of today Writer/s: Brad Delson, Chester Bennington, Dave Farrell, Joe Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon
