This is not a story that you heard or you know
Everyone in black from the head to the toe
And I'm sittin' in the back in the very last row
Hearin' everybody ask why I had to go

Ladies and gentlemen, we're gathered here today
To talk about the end and a friend gone away
Talk about pretendin' they don't know what to say
And they're trippin' over words but they're talkin' anyway
Minglin' and singin' all these really sad songs
Talkin' up what I did right and forgettin' all my wrongs
Sayin' how they'll miss me so much now that I'm gone
Man, this is depressing, let's move on

Let's move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on

Friends from my past wipin' tears on their sleeve
In between people that were never close to me
And as I turn my back on everyone to leave
I know that I'll be back to see them all eventually
I gotta go away just to try somethin' new
'Cause what I'm used to isn't all that I can do
Just a change of scenery, just another view
Take it back to the beginning, take it back to the roots

Let's move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on
Come back to life like the light of the dawn
It's like a tightrope, just move right along
Don't look down and don't step wrong
We don't have time, so just move on

Just move on

Just move...

    General Commentmike doesn't want people to mourn over him when he's gone; or he doesn't want people who never really got to know him coming to his funeral ... i don't know ...

    General Commentokay, this song is actually about the way mike took a break from linkin park to work on the fort minor stuff.

    "And I'm sittin' in the back in the very last row
    Hearin' everybody ask why I had to go"


    "Sayin' how they'll miss me so much now that I'm gone"

    he relates it to life and death - people thought he had left linkin park but he's still in linkin park, ergo, still "alive".

    "Friends from my past wipin' tears on their sleeve
    In between people that were never close to me"

    here, he's talking about how most people b*tching about LP "breaking up" and bagging out FM aren't really fans of either to begin with.

    "And as I turn my back on everyone to leave
    I know that I'll be back to see them all eventually
    I gotta go away just to try somethin' new
    'Cause what I'm used to isn't all that I can do
    Just a change of scenery, just another view
    Take it back to the beginning, take it back to the roots"

    so, yeah, this is about how he'll come back from FM, back to LP, but he needs some time out.

    this is all in past tense 'cause he went back into the mix with LP after 2006. :) but, yeah, this whole thing hit me in the face a little while back.
