"Lies Greed Misery" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
I'ma be that nail in your coffin
Sayin' that I soften
I was duckin' down to reload
So you can save your petty explanations
I don't have the patience

Before you even say it I know
You let your pride and your ego
Talk slick to me no
That is not the way I get down
And look at how you lose your composure
Now let me show ya exactly how the breaking point sound

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

What is it you want me to tell ya?
I'm not the failure
I would rather live and let be
But you can't make the right kinda threat to
Push me to let you
No, you can't intimidate me
You disrespect me so clearly
Now you better hear me
That is not the way it goes down
You did it to yourself and it's over
Now let me show ya exactly how the breaking point sounds

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself

You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself
You did it to yourself

I wanna see you choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery
Choke on your lies
Swallow up your greed
Suffer all alone in your misery

    My Opinioni think for the "meaning" there's 3 meanings (or point out on to...):
    -Talking to the government (since the lyrics says: wanna see you choke on your lies Swallow up your greed Suffer all alone in your misery and I think it's about the corruption and stuff )
    -The "angry" fans that kept saying "the new album sucks, bring back to the basic", and they sick of it
    -War... (since this song is on Medal Of Honor: Warfighter trailer)

    My OpinionAwesome song!
    I can't wait for the new album!
    And this song kind of reminds me A Place For My Head!

    It seems, to be at lease two dimensional. It can be about people, who think linkin park "soften" or about relationship(s).

    General CommentMost definitely says 'greed' and not 'pride'

    This song could go toward many different situations, and I feel it goes toward past "friends" that I've let go for their shady BS they pulled. Powerful lyrics.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song reminds me of this guy that liked me but was dating my best friend. He wrote me a note saying he didn't like my best friend anymore, still liked me, and was jealous of me and my boyfriend. I told my best friend and my boyfriend. She dumped him for being such a jerk and my boyfriend was pissed at him. The chorus of this song is basically what i want to yell in his face. (:

    General Comment"your pride and your ego" are not getting it done. "I don't have the patience" for all you 'complicated' people.

    General CommentI think Linkin Park's lyrics to this song they talking about a girl they once knew. Mmmm i didn't know lp have any heart or felt that way towards someone before. they sound very pissed well they did on most their songs on Living Things album. someday time will tell when that person (that girl, i think or guy?) will tell her side of the story.... tricks up the sleeves.... because she's in pain and got hurt badly as lp did too. I mean just saying... lies greed misery is a very painful emotional LP lyrics. lesson learn from lp never mess with rappers and musicians with other singers and musicians..... just do not do it!

    General CommentDoes it say "Swallow up your greed"? Every other lyric site says "Pride" but listening to the song it kind of sounds like both, actually. I can't tell. And yes, I know greed is in the title but that doesn't mean it's in the chorus...
