    NOT LISTENING- But I'm awed by the amount of postive feedback this song has got. only ONE hatefull coment on this 135 post thread. I think that gotta be some kind of record right there :D

    But how some of you guys have compared it to the Beatles/Elbow just makes my antispation skyrocket!!!!

    Btw, Derek please post in this thread as soon as remember what Beatles song W4TE sounds like :)

    The lyrics are kind of lacking at parts...

    They just can't get away from sounding angsty it seems. Oh well.

    Agreed, it is classic Beatles. A complex melody over a stripped down sound with a great harmony. I don't think it is any single song, just their overall style. If you listen to a song like Across the Universe, you hear that style.

    The lyrics probably aren't fantastic by themselves, I think they sell them with the delivery though. The vocals in this song are pure ear candy.

    Waiting For The End / Lyrics

    [Mike]
    Yeah Yo
    This is not the end / This is not the beginning
    Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
    But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
    Though the words sound steady / Something emptys within 'em
    We say yeah
    With fists flying up in the air
    Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
    Cuz we're living at the mercy / Of the pain and the fear
    Until we dead it
    Forget it
    Let it all disappear

    [Chester]
    Waiting for the end to come
    Wishing I had strength to stand
    This is not what I has planned
    It's out of my control.
    Flying at the speed of light
    Thoughts were spinning in my head
    So many things were left unsaid
    It's hard to let you go

    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

    Sitting in an empty room
    Trying to forget the past
    This was never meant to last
    I wish it wasn't so

    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

    [Mike]
    Yo yo
    What was left / When that fire was gone
    I thought it felt right / But that right was wrong
    All caught up in the eye of the storm
    And trying to figure out / What it's like moving on
    And I don't even know / What kind of things I said
    My mouth kept moving / And my mind went dead
    So
    Picking up the pieces
    Now where to begin
    The hardest part of ending / Is starting again

    All I wanna do / Is trade this life for something new
    Holding on to what I haven't got

    This is not the end / This is not the beginning
    Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
    [Chester: I want to hold on to what I haven't got]
    But you listen to the tone and the violent rhythm
    Though the words sound steady / Something emptys within 'em
    We say yeah
    With fists flying up in the air
    Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
    Cuz we're living at the mercy / Of the pain and the fear
    [Chester: Holding on to what I haven't got]
    Until we dead it
    Forget it
    Let it all disappear

    Of course I won't care. This song is epic and nothing could change my opinion on this.

    Wow, third song of the album I've listened to so far, and all 3 completely different to each other! I think this is my new favourite LP track! Particularly Chester's vocals in this one is to die for! :)

    Still resisting the temptation to download the leaked copy. I've preordered after all, so want to wait out until the official release.

    There you go. It has the same vocal layering as Across The Universe.

    So amazing, by far my favorite song on the album. Just simply amazing and I can relate to it so well. The "Yeah. Yo." in the beginning is the only thing that just seems like a little blemish on the face of this song to me but is EASILY overlooked.

    Linkin Park, you're killing me. How am I supposed to wait a whole week more when you're releasing FULL SONGS yourself?

    If this is true you just made me piss myself. AVA are probably my second favorite band. I'm still trying to hold out.

    I couldn't resist listening to this one, but no more until I get my pre-order in the mail. From one listen:

    Interesting rapping from Mike, and it pays off. The rapping at the build of the song with Chester singing in the background was great.

    Chester's (maybe) softest number to date.

    Nice beat.

    4/5 (couldn't top Wretches and Kings for me.)

    This is probably the most beautiful song I have heard so far from Linkin Park, alongside "Leave Out All the Rest," "Shadow of the Day," and "My December."

    Knew this one was gonna be epically amazing as usual :D
