    I do enjoy these type of songs. I will listen to them for a couple of days maybe. And then completely forget it. I still haven't been blown away by any of the singles released from OML. Also, someone please post the lyrics. Thanks!!

    Linkin Park - Battle Symphony Lyrics:

    I got a long to way to go
    And a long memory
    I've been searching for an answer
    Always just out of reach
    Blood on the floor
    Sirens repeat
    I've been searching for the courage to face my enemies

    When they turn down the lights
    I hear my battle symphony
    All the world in front of me
    If my armour breaks
    I'll fuse it back together
    Battle symphony
    Please just don't give up on me
    And my eyes are wide awake

    For my battle symphony
    For my battle symphony

    You say that I don't belong
    You say that I should retreat
    That I'm marching to the rhythm of a lonesome defeat
    But the sound of your voice
    Is the pain in the reverse
    No surrender, no illusions
    And for better or worse

    When they turn down the lights
    I hear my battle symphony
    All the world in front of me
    If my armour breaks
    I'll fuse it back together
    Battle symphony
    Please just don't give up on me
    And my eyes are wide awake

    If I fall, get knocked down
    Pick myself up off the ground
    If I fall, get knocked down
    Pick myself up off the ground

    When they turn down the lights
    I hear my battle symphony
    All the world in front of me
    If my armour breaks
    I'll fuse it back together
    Battle symphony
    Please just don't give up on me
    And my eyes are wide awake

    For my battle symphony
    For my battle symphony

    ATS will always be the masterpiece from the band. No other album could top that, Not even OML.
    After ATS, I had high expectations from the band that they could top ATS but I'm wrong.

    I see they didn't accept my challenge to not include the word "pain" on this album :lol:

    I'm gonna brush this album off to them being in their 40s going through a midlife crisis. It's the only explanation how they thought this kind of crap was good enough.

    ATS might not be my favorite album but I definitely think it has the best lyrics out of all the albums. With so much hype surrounding this album about its lyrics, I can't help but feel let down.

    I'm not listening to any leaks until the album officially drops on May 19th.

    I sometimes think the band thinks the album is risky in terms of the reception, not the actual music.

    I like Heavy but it doesn't have much replay value after a while and lyrically, isn't any differnet from dozens of other songs.

    There is no such thing as a bad LP album but part of me worries there won't be enough to make this album age well like Living Things.

    On the other hand, the lyrics are better than Heavy but I'm not seeing the focus on lyrics being any better than most of their songs.

    Well, the music is certainly risky insofar as how it will be received. I think the two things are intertwined.

    The fact that they spoke about really focusing on lyrics this time around and then releasing Heavy is enough evidence that they're full of shit.

    These lyrics aren't great but they're top drawer compared to Heavy which I genuinely believe are some of the worst lyrics by the band.

    What if Mike leaked this song on purpose so that we all would forget the hunt for those Xero songs :lol:

    I like this track tho, not love, but like. Best part of the song is the sample (you know what I mean).

    I'll wait another 3 years for a new album... 2020 will be HT's 20th anniv and ATS's 10th anniv. Maybe something interesting in LP8.

    Just heard the full thing. This is just plain bad. I have nothing against pop songs but at least try to take some risks in writing your pop song instead of making it sound exactly like something you'd hear from some random Billboard top 40 pop artist. And where are the rest of the band members? I barely hear their contribution. Sounds like something Mike and Chester alone could've put together in the studio. Terrible.

    What's bad is that they took 3 years to make this album. I can only hope they are releasing the worst songs of the album as singles :lol:

    OK, I gave in. I only listened to it once, and I'm holding it off until the actual song gets released on iTunes and the band starts streaming it on YouTube.

    My short first impression: Maybe I'm just more optimistic when it comes to music nowadays, because I really liked it, guys.

    ..or they're already out of ideas? who knows. they're pretty exhausted in making albums consistently every 2 years.

    Don't expect to get a song in which they took a risk as a single come on

    Sounds like a Lazy Town tv show song. Or any kids show. Definitely, it's all going to be justin bieber songs on this album. (And yes, i say that as a bad thing.)

    I'm so sad. Totally radio-shaped poppy songs.
    I don't want to believe they did that cliche thing at 3:00, "i'll fuse it [instrumental fade / tempo break] back together [instrumental comes back full beat]".

    Well. Shit. :(
