"One More Light" as written by and Chester Charles Bennington Brad Delson....
Should've stayed, were the signs I ignored
Can I help you, not to hurt, anymore?
We saw brilliance when the world was asleep
There are things that we can have, but can't keep

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

The reminder, for the fall from your fear
Indication, one more trip that you need oh
And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
Just 'cause you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

I do

If they say
Who cares if one more light goes out?
In a sky of a million stars
It flickers, flickers
Who cares when someone's time runs out?
If a moment is all we are
We're quicker, quicker
Who cares if one more light goes out?
Well I do

    General CommentIt's one of the greatest song that I have ever heard from Linkin Park! Based on my opinion, this is song is about life (Who cares when someone's time runs out, If a moment is all we are) Very deep meaning. So wonderful! This is a very nice song but at the same time, It's a very sad song.

    My InterpretationI absolutely love this song. I was surprised when I listened to it. I definitely think of coping with death/loss, particularly suicide, when I hear this song (In the kitchen, one more chair than you need; And you're angry, and you should be, it's not fair
    Just 'cause you can't see it, doesn't mean it, isn't there). He talks about how he does care, even when many others may not.

    I think this is definitely my favorite song by them.

    General CommentI think the song is about the general apathetic attitude people have adopted today. A "who cares" type of mentality, "just another life, people die everyday, it is what it is" and here chester is saying "You say its just another light (life) flickering away, but I care"

    even if the song is not about that, its still resonates with me in that way.
