"Somewhere I Belong" as written by Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
When this began,
I had nothing to say
And I'd get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(I was confused)
And I let it all out to find that I'm not the only person with these things in mind (inside of me)
But all the vacancy the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I got left to feel (nothing to lose)
Just stuck, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own,
And the fault is my own

I want to heal, I want to feel,
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I felt so long (erase all the pain 'til it's gone)
I want to heal, I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And I've got nothing to say
I can't believe I didn't fall right down on my face (I was confused)
Looking everywhere only to find that it's not the way I had imagined it all in my mind (so what am I?)
What do I have but negativity?
'Cause I can't justify the way everyone is looking at me (nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own,
And the fault is my own

I want to heal, I want to feel,
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I've held so long (erase all the pain 'till it's gone)
I want to heal, I want to feel
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I will never know myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel,
Anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be
Anything 'til I break away from me
And I will break away, and find myself today

I want to heal, I want to feel
What I thought was never real
I want to let go of the pain I felt so long (erase all the pain til it's gone)
I want to heal, I want to feel,
Like I'm close to something real
I want to find something I've wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I want to heal I want to feel like I'm,
Somewhere I belong,
I want to heal I want to feel like I'm somewhere I belong
Somewhere I belong

    General CommentThis song was written for me. The song is about a person who has been through tough times, and wants to find their place in life. This song perfectly describes my previous struggles with Autism, an eating disorder, OCD, and moving. I will continue to find "somewhere I belong".

    My OpinionI see alot of talk on the older Linkin Park songs about how they aren't 'good' or 'mature' enough. But if you want to look at song from Minutes To Midnight or A Thousand Suns people are complaining because they want 'old' LP back. I am a bit confused by this. Bands make music, they change, grow and mature. It's just part of it.

    I have grown quite fond of them. Linkin Park, ftw.

    General CommentI think anyone that has an argument over a song is an annoyance and should be shot down, but anyway, this song is awesome, simply put, i don't see why people put LP down as kiddy music, sure, idiots overplay it, but it's up to you whether you like a track, not others.
    Anyway, i have NO IDEA what this song is about really, I'm still in the process of figuring it out, maybe someone trying to figure out his life that went wrong? o.O;
