"Part Of Me" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Joseph Hahn and Mike Shinoda....
Part of me won't go away
Everyday reminded how much I hate it
Weighted against the consequences
Can't live without it so it's senseless
Wanna cut it out of my soul
And just live with a gaping hole
Take control of my life
And wash out all the burnt taste
I made the problems in the first place
Hang my head low cause it's part of me
You hardly see right next to the heart of me
Heard of me, the routine scar
New cuts cover where the old ones are
And now I'm sick of this
I can't stand the sandpaper thoughts that grate on my sanity
I rather not even be then the man that's staring in the mirror through me

Cut myself free willingly
Stop just what's killing me

I feel it everyday
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside, swallowing me

Freedom can be frightening if you've never felt it
Once it's been dealt with you feel like you've been touched by something angelic
And then melted down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Remove the broken parts you know were wrong
And feel the calm when the problem's all gone
And then you start to see another piece of yourself that you can't let be
Memories of the last fight to free yourself
Take it to the depths of the bottom of the well
And now you know that you can choose to lose the part in your heart
Where your insides bruise
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

Alive in me, inside of me, a part of me screams away silently
This part of me won't go away, part of me won't go away

Everywhere I look around I see how everyone aught to be
Every time I see myself I see there's always something wrong with me

    General CommentAnother wicked song by the true masters of rock/hip hop elements. I hear everyone say that they can relate to this song, but can't we all relate to everything LP has to say?

    General CommentI love this song, It's on the Hybrid Theory EP, and if you don't know what that is, ur probably not the biggest LP fan that I've heard of. I love this song, and I think that it's the best on the Hybrid Theory EP, so u should get it somehow. If you want to know how, email me at my name here, and I'll email u back explaining.

    General CommentThe hidden instrumental at the end is just awesome, (the song runs 10+ minutes beacuse of it, but it is worth it for both the song and the hidden music!)

    General CommentI'm guessing that this one is about having two sides of youself. Maybe the one with all the guilt and hate won't go away.
