"In Between" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Between my pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none

Let me apologize to begin with
Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
But trying to regain your trust was harder than it seemed
And somehow I got caught up in between

Between my pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none

The only thing that's worse than one is none

And I cannot explain to you
In anything I say, or do, or plan
Fear is not afraid of you
Guilt's a language you can understand
I cannot explain to you in anything I say or do
I hope the actions speak the words they can

For my pride and my promise
For my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is...
For my pride and my promise
Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
The things I want to say to you get lost before they come
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none
The only thing that's worse than one is none

    General CommentSounds like he cheated and got back with his girl. But now he can't really find the words to tell her that regaining her trust is just too hard and he will onky hurt her by being with her. I think when he says all she understands is guilt he means all she knows is his apologizing for the things he's done.

    General CommentChester said that when he was to sing this song it just didn't sound right so they had Mike sing it because when he did, what ever he was apologizing for, he was very serious about. I don't think anyone knows what he is apologizing for though, other then what you can get from the lyrics. I think Techcasualty hit that part right on the head

    Is it just me or does this song sound a little like Tool?"

    You're kidding, right?

    General Commenthere is the corrected version with apologize spelled right, good job Feenix for lyrics

    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
    But trying to be genuine was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between

    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I'm about to say
    But trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed
    And somehow I got caught up in between, between

    My pride
    And my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    And things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that's worse than one is none

    Let me apologize to begin with
    Let me apologize for what I'm about to say

    My pride
    And my promise
    Between my lies and how the truth gets in the way
    And things I want to say to you get lost before they come
    The only thing that's worse than one is none
    The only thing that's worse than one is none

    And I cannot explain to you
    And anything I say or do or plan
    Fear is not afraid of you
    But guilt's a language you can understand
    I cannot explain to you

    But hope the actions speak the words they can

    For my pride

    General CommentI like this song a lot. Linkin Park does not have to be about screaming emo kiddies. If a band is real they are willing to spread out their style. This is definitely a positive move with this song.

    as for the song, I don't think it has to do with cheating. There are just a couple lyrics that don't fit. "My pride And my promise" there isn't a lot of pride in cheating nor admitting it. "But trying to be someone else was harder than it seemed" doesn't fit at all.

    I think it's pretty literal. The 'person' was trying to be someone he was not. Maybe it was with a girl (there always seems to be a girl). Now, telling someone that "hey, I was bullshitting. This isn't really how I am. I'm not this 'cool'" takes a big hit to the pride. The only thing I can't fit is the promise part. What did he promise?
