    To find myself again
    My walls are closing in
    (Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
    That there's just too much pressure to take)
    I've felt this way before
    So insecure

    and

    One thing, I don’t know why
    It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
    Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
    To remind myself how
    I tried so hard
    In spite of the way you were mocking me
    Acting like I was part of your property
    Remembering all the times you fought with me
    I’m surprised it got so (far)
    Things aren’t the way they were before
    You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
    Not that you knew me back then
    But it all comes back to me
    In the end

    We held our breath when the clouds began to form
    But you were lost in the beating of the storm
    But in the end we were meant to be apart
    Like separate chambers of the human heart
    -
    I know what it takes to move on,
    I know how it feels to lie,
    All I wanna do
    Is trade this life for something new
    Holding on to what I haven't got

    I don't know what's worth fighting for
    Or why I have to scream
    But now I have some clarity
    To show you what I mean

    God bless us everyone,
    We're a broken people living under loaded gun.
    And it can't be outfought,
    It can't be outdone,
    It can't be outmatched,
    It can't be outrun.
    No!

    Who could forget the outro of "And One", arguably Mike's best rap in LP's material:

    Wow, it really is amazing how much diversity the lyricism of LP has, whether the lyrics themselves are simple and straight-forward, or complex and symbolic.

    Here are only some of my favorite lyrical moments from each album:

    Hybrid Theory: Forgotten

    Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs
    Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
    The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind
    Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
    A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
    On down the street till the wind is gone
    The memory now is like the picture was then
    When the paper’s crumpled up it can’t be perfect again

    Meteora: Nobody's Listening

    I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
    handful of anger, held in my chest
    Uphill struggle
    Blood sweat and tears
    Nothing to gain
    Everything to fear

    Minutes to Midnight: No More Sorrow

    I see pain
    I see need
    I see liars and thieves
    Abuse power with greed

    I had hope
    I believed
    But I'm beginning to think that I've been deceived

    You will pay for what you've done

    A Thousand Suns: The Catalyst

    God save us everyone,
    Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
    For the sins of our hands,
    The sins of our tongues,
    The sins of our fathers,
    The sins of our young.
    No!

    And this:

    Like memories in cold decay,
    Transmissions echoing away,
    Far from the world of you and I,
    Where oceans bleed into the sky!


    Living Things: Until It Breaks

    It ain't over
    'Cause the shark's on the left side, the snake's on the right
    And anything you do, they wanna get a little bite
    It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right
    'Cause once they get their teeth in nothing really fights

    And this:

    We swim against the rising waves
    And crash against the shore
    The body bends until it breaks
    The early morning sings no more

    The Hunting Party: A Line in the Sand

    Today
    I looked for a sign
    With flames in my hands
    A line in the sand
    Between yours and mine
    And it came
    Like fire from below
    Your greed led the call
    My flag had to fall
    But little did you know

    And, of course, all of this:

    I had never been a coward
    I had never seen blood
    You had sold me an ocean
    And I was lost in the flood
    We were counting on a leader
    We were driven by need
    But couldn't take temptation
    And we were blinded by greed
    You were steady as a sniper
    We were waiting on a wire
    So we never saw it coming
    When you ran from the fire
    You can try intimidation
    And you can try to ignore
    But when the time comes calling, yeah
    You are gonna get yours

    This is merely a sampling of the lyricism that has stood out to me from LP, with there being many more examples I have not listed.

    And One
    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

    Forgotten
    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core I’ve forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    The picture is there
    The memory won’t escape me
    But why should I care

    P5nhg Me A*wy
    When I look into your eyes there’s nothing there to see
    Nothing but my own mistakes staring back at me

    Easier to Run
    Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
    Bringing back these memories I wish I didn't have
    Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
    And never moving forward so there'd never be a past

    Breaking the Habit
    I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
    Or why I have to scream
    But now I have some clarity
    To show you what I mean
    I don’t know how I got this way
    I’ll never be alright

    Nobody's Listening
    Heart full of pain / Head full of stress
    Handful of anger / Held in my chest
    (And everything left is a waste of time
    I hate my rhymes
    [But hate everyone else's more])
    (Uphill struggle / Blood sweat and tears
    Nothing to gain / Everything to fear)

    Given Up
    I'm my own worst enemy

    Hands Held High
    It’s ironic, at times like this you’d pray
    But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday
    There’s bombs on the buses, bikes, roads
    Inside your market, your shops, and your clothes
    My dad, he’s got a lot of fear, I know
    But enough pride inside not to let that show
    My brother had a book he would hold with pride
    A little red cover with a broken spine on the back
    He hand-wrote a quote inside,
    “When the rich wage war, it’s the poor who die”

    When They Come for Me
    ‘Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works
    Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first

    Waiting for the End
    This is not the end, this is not the beginning
    Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
    But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
    Though the words sound steady, something empty’s within ‘em
    We say yeah / with fists flying up in the air
    Like we’re holding onto something that’s invisible there
    ‘Cause we’re living at the mercy of the pain and fear
    Until we dead it / forget it / let it all disappear

    Wretches and Kings
    The front of the attack is exactly where I’m at
    Somewhere in between
    The kick and the hi hat
    The pen and the contract
    The pitch and the contact
    So get with the combat / I’m letting ‘em know
    There ain’t shit you can say to make me back down no
    So / push the button let the whole thing blow

    The Catalyst
    God bless us every one
    We’re a broken people living under loaded gun
    And it can’t be outfought
    It can’t be outdone
    It can’t be outmatched
    It can’t be outrun

    And when I close my eyes tonight
    To symphonies of blinding light

    Blackbirds
    I drop to the floor like I did before
    Stop watching / I’m coughing / I can’t be more
    What I want and what I need are at constant war
    Like a well full of poison / a rotten core
    The blood goes thin / the fever stings
    And I shake from the hell that the habits bring
    Let the sick ones down / the bells will ring
    Put pennies on the eyes / let the dead men sing

    Slip

    Sometimes you've got no control of where you go
    Taking you down a road you don't know
    And you feel so lost that you wanna hide your face
    You don't recognize the place you're in
    Sometimes the sun doesn't shine your way
    Sometimes the night doesn't turn to day
    Sometimes the light's so bright it burns through the night and keeps the darkness at bay

    Roads Untraveled
    ’Cause the love that you lost
    Wasn’t worth what it cost
    And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone

    Until It Breaks
    Steady little soldier, I ain’t standing next to you
    I’d be laying on the ground before you’re even in my view

    Guilty All the Same
    Tell us all again
    What you think we should be
    What the answers are
    What it is we can’t see

    Final Masquerade
    All I ever wanted / the secrets that you keep
    All you ever wanted / the truth I couldn’t speak
    ’Cause I can’t see forgiveness, and you can’t see the crime
    But we both keep on waiting for what we left behind

    White Noise
    Your words are clear but their meanings gone.
    The notes are right but the tunings wrong

    Fear is dancing inside your lies exposing secrets that you've disguised

    Not a scratch where you can take a scar

    [Mike]
    I watch how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night, shining with the light from the sun, the sun doesnt give light to the moon, assuming the moons gonna owe it one, and makes think of how you act to me, you do favors that rapidly, you just turn around and start asking me about things you want back from me, Im sick of the tension, sick of the hunger, sick of you acting like I owe you this, find another place to feed your greed, while I find a place to rest, Im sick of the tension, sick of the hunger, sick of you acting like I oweyou this, find another place to feed your greed, while I find a place to rest.
