"My Dsmbr" as written by Robert G. Bourdon, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Graffiti sky, sky, sky [echo fade]
(I don't think you all ready)

Graffiti decorations under a sky of grey
This constant apprehension still giving me away
The lessons I've forgotten
Inside of all I've learned
Now I find myself in question
(point the finger at me again)
Guilty by association
(point the finger at me again)

I want to runaway
(I want to runaway)
I want to know the truth
(I want to know the truth)
I want to know the answers
(I want to know the answers)
I want to shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

Paper bags and angry voices under a sky of grey
This constant apprehension won't seem to go away
All my talk of starting over
These words were never true
Now I find myself in question
(point the finger at me again)
I'm guilty by association
(point the finger at me again)

I want to runaway
(I want to runaway)
I want to know the truth
(I want to know the truth)
I want to know the answers
(I want to know the answers)
I want to shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

Gonna runaway, gonna runaway
Gonna runaway, gonna runaway
Runaway [being scratched over and over again]
(Ya'll not ready)

Hey yo
I don't think ya'll ready for what I'm about to do
y'all new school dudes ain't even got no clue
How dare you forget about Bam and Zulu
Two urban jazz DJ's they paved the way
Let me spit it to y'all who said I wasn't gonna make it
Everytime I blaze it, ya'll the first to hate it
My team rains supreme and stays strong
Every 2 series son, they scared to put us on
Can't get with the high prince, get off your atis
Too many of y'all is dyin' for us so I gotta blaze it
I'm still reppin BK, Brooklyn D and on
Hell fire and family allienation
Banging hits in the backyard
Out on the episode
I'm a little kid named
Phoenix Orion

I want to runaway
(I want to runaway)
I want to know the truth
(I want to know the truth)
I want to know the answers
(I want to know the answers)
I want to shut the door
(And open up my mind)
And open up my mind
(And open up my mind)

    General CommentI think that this song describes the way that you were ignorant (just wish that i didn't feel like there was something I missed) or said something wrong (obviously) because that person, in spite of all of their warmth, is nothing but a cold and heartless being (My December), and they are asking the other person for forgiveness... Sound Good? My AIM Sn is Green Clad Killa

    General Commentthis song is wicked...to me the song is about having something at the end of your day that you can come home to and forget about all the trials of day to day life... this is arguably my fav song on the reanimation album

    General CommentI think that the My Dsmbr on reanimation is the best because its slower than da others and they can get more of da effect out by goin slow.

    General CommentI have to say, this song hit me the hardest of all the songs on Linkin Park's three cds. I love every song by them, and I have my favorites, but this was the first song to really get to me with it's message. I love it. I've felt the way the lyrics describe, and can totally relate.
