"In Pieces" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
Telling me to go
But hands beg me to stay
Your lips say that you love
Your eyes say that you hate

There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
What you build you lay to waste
There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
All I've got's what you didn't take

So I, I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you, you will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

You promise me the sky
Then toss me like a stone
You wrap me in your arms
And chill me to the bone

There's truth in your lies
Doubt in your faith
All I've got's what you didn't take

So I, I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you, you will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

So I, I won't be the one
Be the one to leave this
In pieces
And you, you will be alone
Alone with all your secrets
And regrets
Don't lie

    General CommentSince no one else is really explaining what the song is about...

    I think he's talking about a relationship that has gone bad, and he wants his ex to know that it's not over because of him, but because of her and what she's done. ("So I, I won't be the one. Be the one to leave this in pieces"). He's saying that she's at fault for the relationship failing, and that he wasn't the one who let things fall apart.

    But this is an incredible song, you can feel what he feels just by the emotion in his voice alone.

    General CommentI don't know how many know thins but "Minutes to Midnight" is reference to the doomsday clock made in 1947 where midnight is when humankind is destroyed by nuclear war, war seems to be an issue in this cd...

    General CommentThis reminds me of my recent ex. When the relationship started, she promised she would never get bored of me or break my heart.

    She did both. She lied to my face many times. And she was the one who dumped me...just to save her own heart from being broken. Funny thing was, I wanted to try and make it work. And I feel this song sums up how I feel.

    I shouldn't be the one "to leave this, in pieces". Because it's her loss.

    I instantly fell in love with this song when I first heard it for this reason. And I bet you when the album is finally released...it's going be a huge hit. The ska guitar is an odd, yet perfect choice. =]

    General Commenti wish to type out the complete opposite of the above poster. But you get the idea.

    Guitar is good in this song though :)

    General Commentthis song is a perfect example of why chester is one of the best singer out there today ... his range is incredable and unlike anyone else out there today .. he goes from this soft heart felt voice quickly over to a emotional scream that when u hear it just strikes u ... he can go from a hard core screamer to a love song seemlessly .. even his own band mates say how lucky they are to have him as theyre singer ..
