"Not Alone" as written by Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, Joseph Hahn, Mike Shinoda, Chester Charles Bennington and Robert G. Bourdon....
I break down, fear is sinking in
The cold comes, racing through my skin
Searching for a way to get to you
Through the storm you
Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

With arms up, stretched into the sky
With eyes like, echoes in the night
Hiding from the hell that you've been through
Silent one, you
Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

Go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known
You are not alone

You go, giving up your home
Go, leaving all you've known

You go, giving up your home
Go, you are not alone
You are not alone

You are not alone
You are not alone

    My InterpretationThis is amazing. I wonder if they made it entirely in the few days between the earthquake and the release.

    I break down, fear is sinking in <- literal or buildings breaking and sinking
    The cold comes, racing through my skin <- negative emotions or a body going cold in death
    Searching for a way to get to you <- trying to find loved ones
    Through the storm you... <- storm is metaphor for disaster/bad things

    Go, giving up your home <- lost their homes in the disaster
    Go, leaving all you've known <- not just homes but everything
    You are not alone <- there are others in the same situation, and people who care

    With arms up, stretched into the sky <- looking up to God, welcoming heaven
    With eyes like, echoes in the night
    Hiding from the hell that you've been through <- disbelief
    Silent one, you.... <- silent one could be someone who died or literal

    Go, giving up your home <- home is earth
    Go, leaving all you've known <- moving on to heaven, leaving everything behind
    You are not alone <- many others died too, and people care

    Go, giving up your home
    Go, leaving all you've known
    You are not alone

    *bridge*

    You go, giving up your home
    Go, leaving all you've known

    You Go, giving up your home
    Go, you are not alone
    You are not alone

    You are not alone
    You are not alone

    Song Meaningawesome song..
    My interpretation is maybe the first three lines are from the point of view of the person rescuing or maybe the storm itself.. LP loves playin it in different levels of meanings.. Literal, metaphors, puns, etc..
    You go.... Maybe the person who have been rescued or the one who are already dead.
    Givin up ur home, leavin all u've known are literal and metaphorical with respect to the person bein dead or rescued, etc.
    With arms up, stretched into the sky could be callin out to heavens or literally the act of tryin to fight the storm and askin for help frm the ppl rescuing 'em.
    With eyes like, echoes in the night is metaphorical.. Maybe the never endin darkness and hopelesness n their eyes (of the living) or the dead cold eyes (of the dead)..
    Hidin from the hell u've been through.. This could be referrin to the post traumatic stress amongst those who have been rescued and in the hospital(refer video).. Or could be those still n the affected area tryin to hide from the storm(hell)..
    Silent one.. Dead or PTS(stress)

    This song touched me like 'what i've done' and 'hands held high'..
    Awesome!!
