    But learn to respect it because you surely can't stop it like that.

    It's clearly, not surely.

    And you can run your mouth or you could try to fill my shoes.


    I believe it's like, not or.

    Thank you for transcribing. I feel a little taken back though that my name wasn't added to the contributor's list. Even though official lyrics to the two songs I helped transcribe came out before this thread was made. No hard feelings though! I'm sure I will be using this thread very shortly.

    LOST IN THE ECHO:

    You were that / foundation
    Never gonna be another one no
    I followed/ so taken
    So conditioned I could never let go
    Then sorrow / then sickness
    Then the shock when you flip it on me
    So hollow / so vicious
    So afraid I couldn't let myself see
    That I could never be held
    Back or up no / I hold myself
    Check the rep / yep you know my mine well
    Forget the rest / let them know my hell
    There and back / yet my soul ain't sell
    Kept respect up / The rest they fell
    Let the rest be the tale they tell
    That I was there saying...

    In these promises broken / Deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie / I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go

    Test my will / test my heart
    Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
    Y'all go hard / I go smart
    How's that working out for y'all in the back, huh?
    I've seen that frustration
    Been crossed and lost and told no
    And I've come back / unshaken
    Let down, and live and let go
    So you can let it be known

    I don't hold back I hold my own
    I can't be mapped / I can't be cloned
    I can't C-flat / it ain't my tone
    I can't fall back I came too far
    Hold myself up and love my scars
    Let the bells ring wherever they are
    'Cause I was there saying

    NO / YOU CAN TELL 'EM ALL NOW
    I DON'T BACK UP / I DON'T BACK DOWN
    I DON'T FOLD UP AND I DON'T BOW
    I DON'T ROLL OVER / DON'T KNOW HOW
    I DON'T CARE WHERE THE ENEMIES ARE
    CAN'T BE STOPPED / ALL I KNOW / GO HARD
    WON'T FORGET HOW I GOT THIS FAR
    FOR EVERY TIME SAYING...

    In these promises broken / deep below
    Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie / I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go


    IN MY REMAINS:

    Separate
    Sifting through the wreckage I can't concentrate
    Searching for a message in the fear and pain
    Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive

    Now in my remains
    Are promises that never came
    Set this silence free
    To wash away the worst of me

    Come apart
    Falling in the cracks of every broken heart
    Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
    Sinking down and waiting for a chance to feel alive

    Now in my remains
    Are promises that never came
    Set this silence free
    To wash away the worst of me

    Like an army
    Falling
    One by one by one


    BURN IT DOWN:

    The cycle repeated
    As explosions broke in the sky
    All that I needed
    Was the one thing I couldn't find

    And you were there at the turn
    Waiting to let me know

    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    The colors conflicted
    As the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this
    But couldn't stop from tearing it down

    And you were there at the turn
    Caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn
    Waiting to let you know

    You told me yes / You held me high
    And I believed when you told that lie
    I played soldier / You played king
    And struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right / to hold that crown
    I built you up but you let me down
    So when you fall / I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames as your blazes burn


    LIES GREED MISERY:

    Imma be that nail in your coffin
    Saying that I softened
    I was ducking down to reload
    So you can save your petty explanations
    I don't have the patience
    Before you even say it I know
    You let your pride or your ego
    Talk slick to me, no
    That is not the way I get down
    And look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show ya
    Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
    SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
    SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY

    What is it you want me to tell ya
    I am not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you came with the right kind of threat to
    Push me to let you
    Know you can't intimidate me
    You disrespect me so clearly
    Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it's over
    Now let me show ya
    Exactly how the breaking point sounds

    I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
    SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
    SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY

    YOU DID IT TO YOURSELF


    I'LL BE GONE:

    Like shining oil this night is dripping down
    Stars are slipping down
    Glistening
    And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
    No deceiving now
    It's time you let me know
    Let me know

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence I'll be gone
    I'll be gone
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
    I'll be gone

    This air between us is getting thinner now
    Into winter now
    Bittersweet
    And 'cross that horizon this sun is setting down
    You're forgetting now
    It's time you let me go
    Let me go

    And tell them I couldn't help myself
    And tell them I was alone
    Oh tell me I am the only one
    And there's nothing that can stop me

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence I'll be gone
    I'll be gone
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow I'll be gone
    I'll be gone
    I'll be gone


    CASTLE OF GLASS:

    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
    And 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


    VICTIMIZED:

    No regret for the confidence betrayed
    No more hiding in shadow
    'Cause I won't wait for the debt to be repaid
    Time has come for you

    VICTIMIZED
    VICTIMIZED
    NEVER AGAIN
    VICTIMIZED

    They're acting like they want a riot / it's a riot I'll give 'em
    As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
    For you snakes in the grass / supplying the venom
    I ain't scared of your teeth / I admire what's in 'em
    You've been waiting in the shadows there
    Thinking you're hidden

    But the truth is you don't have the stomach to get 'em
    Go on already, hit 'em / yeah you've got to be kiddin
    Wanna talk about a victim / Imma put you there with 'em

    VICTIMIZED
    VICTIMIZED
    NEVER AGAIN
    VICTIMIZED


    ROADS UNTRAVELED:

    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for paths left alone
    'Cause beyond every bend
    Is a long blinding end
    It's the worse kind of pain I've known

    Give up your heart left broken
    And let that mistake pass on
    'Cause the love that you lost
    Wasn't worth what it cost
    And in time you'll be glad it's gone

    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for sights unseen
    May your love never end
    And if you need a friend
    There's a seat here alongside me


    SKIN TO BONE:

    Skin to bone / steel to rust
    Ash to ashes / dust to dust
    Let tomorrow have its way
    With the promises we made
    Skin to bone / steel to rust

    Ash to ashes / dust to dust
    Your deception / my disgust
    When your name is finally drawn
    I'll be happy that you're gone
    Ash to ashes / dust to dust

    ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
    SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST

    Right to left / left to right
    Night to day and day to night
    As the starlight fades to grey
    I'll be marching far away
    Right to left and left to right

    ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
    SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST

    Let tomorrow have its way
    With the promises betrayed
    Skin to bone and steel to rust
    Skin to bone and steel to rust
    Skin to bone and steel to rust


    UNTIL IT BREAKS:

    It's goes 1 2 3
    I was born the hunger of a lion / the strength of a sun
    I don't need to sweat it when a competition come
    Original style like an 808 drum
    So I don't run the track, no / I make the track run
    My mama taught me words / my daddy built rockets
    I put 'em both together now tell me what I got
    It's a pretty smart weapon / I can shoot it, I can drop it
    But learn to respect it 'cause you clearly can't stop it
    Like that

    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 you get the teeth in / nothing really fights
    And as for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose
    And you can run your mouth like
    You can try to fill my shoes, but
    Steady little solider, I ain't standing next to you
    I'd be laying on the ground before you're even in my view
    Like that

    Give me the strength of the rising sun
    Give me the truth of the words unsung
    And when the last bells ring
    The poor men sing
    "Bring me to kingdom come"

    It's something for ya people on the block to
    Black out and rock to
    Give you what you need like poppa, who shot ya
    "Separate the weak from the obsolete"
    You're meek / I creep hard on imposters
    And switch styles on the dime / quick witted
    Ya'll, quit trippin' I don't have time for your crying
    I grind tough / sucker, make your mind up
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the lineup?
    Bang bang little monkey man
    Playing with the big guns will only get you slain, I ain't playing
    I'm just saying / you ain't got a sliver of a chance
    I get iller, I deliver while you quiver in your pants
    So shake shake down / money, here's the breakdown
    You can play the bank Imma play the bank takedown
    And no mistakes now / coming to get ya
    I'm just a Banksy/You're a Brainwash
    Get the picture
    It's like that

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

    So rest your head it's time to sleep
    And dream of what's in store
    The body bends until it breaks
    And sings again no more

    'Cause time has torn the flesh away
    The early morning sings no more


    TINFOIL:

    Instrumental


    POWERLESS:

    You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
    You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
    I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
    Ten thousand promises
    Ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all
    But you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless

    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I'm left with emptiness that words can not defend
    You'll never know what I became because of you
    Ten thousand promises
    Ten thousand ways to lose

    And you held it all
    But you were careless to let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless

    Can somebody explain to me the "I'm a Banksy, you're a brainwash" line in 'Until It Breaks'? I can't seem to figure out what Mike Shinoda is referencing there.

    As far as I know, Banksy and Mr. Brainwash are artist and Mike's influences in art. I gotta say, Banksy is pretty sick...

    It's from a documentary called Exit Through the Gift Shop. Banksy is a graffiti / street artist; one of the best in the world, actually. Mr.Brainwash is another artist that basically copies his style.

    Either go watch the movie itself, or just look up those two artists.

    "Cause the love that you lost, wasn't worth what it cost, and in time you'll be glad it's gone" - is helping me getting thru some bad breakup right now...

    ^ That's a great line. I was able to really relate to it over summer, especially when the album first came out. Their lyrics are definitely at their best right now.
