    I know that 'Sick' is Don't Stay. I also know that 'Drawing' is obviously BTH, as it was released on LPU9. I know Faint and Figure.09 kept their names, I'm not sure about the others though. Also, I know most of the MTM demo names.

    Wake - Armada
    Given Up - 21 Stitches
    Leave Out All The Rest - Fear
    Bleed It Out - Accident
    Shadow Of The Day - ?
    What I've Done - ? (Most likely same name as it was last song finished for album)
    Hands Held High - Song Q
    No More Sorrow - Ebow Idea
    Valentine's Day - ?
    In Between - ?
    In Pieces - Pictures
    The Little Things Give You Away - Drum Song
    *Across The Line - Japan
    *No Roads Left - Patients

    These are all the known working titles I can think of:

    One Step Closer - Plaster
    With You - Now I See
    Points of Authority - Oh No/Points & Authority
    Runaway - Stick N' Move/Stick and Move (really two different songs that happen to share a guitar riff, but Stick and Move on LPU9 was labeled as a Runaway demo)
    By Myself - Sad/Super Zero/Super Xero
    In the End - Untitled
    A Place for My Head - Esaul
    Forgotten - Rhinestone
    Don't Stay - Sick
    Breaking the Habit - Drawing
    Wake - WAKE Album Intro Idea
    Given Up - 21 Stitches
    Leave Out All the Rest - Fear/When My Time Comes
    Bleed it Out - Accident
    Shadow of the Day - Shadow of the Day
    Hands Held High - Song Q
    No More Sorrow - EBow Idea/EBow
    In Pieces - Pictures
    The Little Things Give You Away - Drum Song
    No Roads Left - Patients/No Roads Left But One
    Across the Line - Japan
    When They Come For Me - Dingleberry
    Robot Boy - Robot Boy
    Waiting For the End - Meadowlands
    Blackout - Pac Manny (or Pac-Manny)
    Iridescent - Iridescent

    Nocturnal and Shifter are known to have originated from the Meteora sessions, but it's never been determined what songs they were working titles for, or if they were different songs entirely. I've seen Armada attributed to Wake a lot, and I'm really not sure why...Armada was just one of many random seed titles shown on computer screens at various points during LPTV episodes/the Making of Minutes to Midnight, as far as I know there's never been any mention of it beyond that. There was a "WAKE Album Intro Idea" seed shown at one point though.

    It's pretty safe to assume that most songs where the title isn't a lyric in the song were working titles that stuck, however I've only listed ones that I know for sure where that was the case (Iridescent/Robot Boy/Shadow of the Day). The demo version of Crawling may have been called Crawling, but some of the A Place for My Head demos were called A Place for My Head too, despite the original name being Esaul. It all depends on when a song's title was changed, if it was changed at all.

    Shadow of the Day does have the song title in its lyrics.

    But do we know what that song turned out to be? Like I remember hearing a while back that it ended up becoming QWERTY but I'd like to know for sure.

    Grecian is just Grecian. Nothing else.

    ...

    Grecian = B-Side or an unfinished song = Not working title for any song

    Shadow of the Day is an oddball one, it was listed on the tracking board in the studio during the Minutes to Midnight sessions under that title, despite titles like 21 Stitches and Song Q being on the same board. I'm assuming that means the song maintained that title all along. They've done songs where they wrote the lyrics before the music though (Easier to Run), so that might have been the case with that song too.

    I agree with Minus' post almost entirely, except that Hit The Floor should be Papercut. The songs have almost the exact same tempo and pattern and you can even mashup the two because they are so similar. It's actually kind of embarrassing how alike the two songs are.
