"Nobody's Listening" as written by Dave Farrell, Robert G. Bourdon, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Come, come, come, coming at you,
Come, coming at you,
Come, coming at you,
Peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is how could you ignore it
We drop right back in the cut over basement tracks
With raps that got you backing this up like (rewind that)
We're just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics of life living
Not to forgotten but still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who want to
Talk this and that, so I suppose
It gets to a point feelings gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt

Try to give you warning but everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening call to you so clearly
But you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger, held in my chest
And everything's left is a waste of time
I hate my rhymes (but hate everyone else's more)
I'm riding on the back of this pressure
Guessing that it's better I can't keep myself together
Because all of this stress gave me something to write on
The pain gave me something I could set my sights on
You never forget the blood, sweat, and tears
The uphill struggle over the years
The fear and trash talking
And the people it was to
And the people that started it
Just like you

Try to give you warning but everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening
Call to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger, held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear

A heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger, held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear

A heart full of pain, a heart full of pain
Try to give you warning but everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening
Call to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody's listening

A heart full of pain, head full of stress
But nobody's listening
Handful of anger, held in my chest
Nobody's listening
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nobody's listening
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
But nobody's listening
Come, come, come, coming at you
Come, come, come, coming at you
Come, come, come, coming at you
Come, come, come, coming at you

    General CommentThis song is very easily interperted(in my opinion)

    It's talking about the fact that no matter what we say or do, the basic reaction is for humans to go back to what we were doing. History has repeated itself so many times now. We always end up wanting to do what hurts us the most

    General Commentlol.

    i won't even waste my breath telling off people who hate on linkin park. i'm not angry because anyone dislikes this band. it's just the fact that they'd take the time to post a comment about how much they hate them that makes me so amused. they've already embarassed themselves.

    LP 4 ever ♥♥

    General CommentSince Linkin Park started out in Arizona I've been around and Vannaroth you're a faget who probably sits around listening to Elton John instead of something with actual meanings that everyone can relate to maybe not jus people who's mommy and daddy wont let them go to a party...i never had a mom or a dad to make thos rules for me but love this band anyway...you're a bitch who doesn't deserve to listen to music

    General CommentI'm not sure which is funnier. The Linkin Park haters who can't seem to mind there own business so they come to Linkin Park boards to bash Linkin Park fans or the fans who murder the English Language and doing little more than proving the haters right.

    I am 16 years old. I own both Hybrid Theory and Meteora. I also own Breaking Benjamin's We Are Not Alone and Saturate, Crossfade's first album, Korn's Take A Look in the Mirror, Life Is Peachy (not my fav.) and Issues. I also own Led Zeppelin's First album, fourth album, and Houses of the Holy. I own Pink Floyd's The Wall, Final Cut, and Greatest Hits. I love Slayer, Metallica, Testament, Exodus, and Anthrax. I even like Death Metal. Not all Linkin Park fans are depressed 12 year olds who hate their parents.

    I suggest to the LP haters to post under bands that they like and leave people who do like them alone. As for LP fans, act like you have a slight bit of intelligence and maybe you won't get bashed as much.

    As for the meaning I agree with Willow.

    General CommentThis song says that you can hate them all you want, but their gonna keep on making music. This is the only time where I can appreciate the japanese flute action going on. Haters stay away, because Linkin Park isn't going anywhere!

    General CommentI think this song is about someone getting ready to get rid of all the hypocrites and liars that plague his life. He knows nobody will listen, but he warns them anyway to see if anyone will listen. Of course, no one does, and he says that he has been "riding on the back of this pressure" for far too long and he decides to put an end to the lies now.

    General CommentI have to agree with over half the people here... If you don't like the band... Why are you here?

    And, sad to say, this is most likly, the only song in the world I could listen to non-stop for several hours.... ^^ Ehehe.....

    And BTW.... Vannaroth-sama, I have a feeling that YOU are only 11 and that, you probibly do like this song but think that you want to be different than everyone else by bombing a good song just to make your-self feel better about whatever is bothering you..... Do you have a bad family life or somthing?
