"No Roads Left" as written by Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Mike Shinoda, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Standing alone with no direction
How did I fall so far behind'
Why am I searching for perfection
Knowing it's something I won't find'

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because I run
'Til the silence splits me open, I run
'Til it puts me underground
'Til I have no breath
And no roads left but one

When did I lose my sense of purpose'
Can I regain what's lost inside'
Why do I feel like I deserve this'
Why does my pain look like my pride'

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because I let myself down

In my fear and flaws, I run
'Til the silence splits me open, I run
'Til it puts me underground
'Til I have no breath
And no roads left but one
No roads left but one

In my fear and flaws
I let myself down again
All because I run
And the silence splits me open, I run
And it puts me underground
But there's no regret
And no roads left to run

    General CommentThis song is the best from minutes to midnight bar NONE. Mike is a amazing singer and it angers me how he barley appears in minutes to midnight. This song generaly is something anyone can relate to. We all tend to struggle and runaway from our problems but eventually we have to face them. No matter what they are.

    General Commentits pretty vague so i guess you could just say that hes experienced a loss and hes just overly critical of himself and possibly blames himself
    real bummer this couldntve been on the regular album...but it was def worth the preorder just for this song...i like it better than most of the other songs on m2m

    General Commenti think its about someone who runs away from his problems until he cannot run anymore and eventually has to face them otherwise his fear would consume him.

    General CommentIf all of Linkin Park's b-sides are going to be this good from now on, it's going to be hard to distinguish them from their regular songs. Depending on whether you count it as part of the album, I think that this could be one of the top 4 or 5 tracks on the album or at least so far. That's where I put it right now I guess with the rest of the songs on the album. I've only listened through the full album once though so my opinions on all the songs will probably change after a couple months or so. That's the way it usually works. So far though, this song is just amazing. This is just powerful and so inspiring instrumentally. I'm not sure if I've heard anything quite like this from them or much anyone else. It's similar lyric wise to some songs they've done but instrumentally...this is special. This is them at their finest or almost at least. This will just get better the more I listen to it.

    General CommentYea I reckon that this B-side is possibly better than some of the tracks on the album, or it should have been on the album anyway. I saw Mike singing this on the Making of M2M on the special edition DVD which was cool.

    Only once through? I have listened through around 20-30 times now, still love it. :)

    General Commentthis song is amazing. while im a big LP fan, i think Minutes was a little bit of a letdown. I can't say I can ever see myself liking a few of the songs on there. But this song is awesome, its everything it needed to be and definately should be on the CD rather than bonus track.
