"Pts.of.athrty" as written by Robert G. Bourdon, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Yo, yo
Forfeit the game, before somebody takes you out of the frame
Put your name to shame, cover up your face
You can't run the race, the pace is too fast, you just won't last
Won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last,
Won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last,
Won't last, won't last

You love the way, I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life, my pride, is broken

You like to think you're never wrong
(You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone
(You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
(You live what you've learned)
Learned, learned, learned, learned, learned

You love the things, I say I'll do
The way I hurt myself again, just to get back at you
You take away, when I give in
My life, my pride, is broken

You like to think you're never wrong
(You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone
(You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You wanna' share what you've been through
(You live what you've learned)

Yo, yo
Forfeit the game, before somebody takes you out of the frame
Put your name to shame, cover up your face
You can't run the race, the pace is too fast, you just won't last
Forfeit the game, before somebody takes you out of the frame
Put your name to shame, cover up your face
You can't run the race, the pace is too fast, you just won't last
Won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last,
Won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last, won't last,
Won't last, won't last

You like to think you're never wrong
(You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone
(You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
You like to think you're never wrong
(You like to think you're never wrong)
You have to act like you're someone
(You have to act like you're someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you've been through
(You live what you've learned)

Oh, oh

    General CommentThe best video ever!!!

    Nothing like Machine Guns, missles, and bombs ablazing backed by an awesome Linkin Park song.

    I think the video is slightly better than the song.

    Awesomeness!

    I think it's about being used and trying to break away. The invading armies represent his (chester's) enemy and the base and the defending forces represent I guess chester's pride and honor. His enemy is trying to crush this defenses but he defeats them after an intense battle adn finally wins in the end.

    It's about standing up for yourself and to be not be used by other people.

    -That's what I think

    General Commenti love how they made a remix cd such as this ..

    ''You love the things I say I'll do
    The way I'll hurt myself again just to get back at you ''

    sad how some people enjoy others pain...

    General CommentThis song is one of the best and it does mean something its about strength and power and the blue blob thing is the highest power you can go through and the secret that you hold. And it has happened to me and im only 11

    Note: listen to the 'My life my pride is broken' bit in reverse cause it sounds like chester is and excorsist

    General CommentThis is the sweetest remix yet! The video is one of the best examples of what computer animation can do! It reminds me so much of a videogame, like technology versus biology. So cool.

    And well, am I the only one that noticed those giant walking things (I don't know the name...) that looked like those giant walking things in "Star Wars"? And that the "hero" that was awakened by the glowing fairies looked like the hero from "Metroid Prime"? Either way, that is just plain fucking awesome. The original sucks.

    To be honest, I think I like LP's remix more than their original... but HT is still good. I can't wait for Minutes to Midnight!
