"Crawling (Demo)" as written by Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington, Joseph Hahn and Robert G. Bourdon....
Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
That there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming (confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling (confusing what is real)

    General CommentI love the new rap verse in the song. It's beautiful.

    And the "I hate you so much right now!" that Chester screams at the beginning seems like an homage to "Caught Out There" by Kelis, but I don't know...

    to Hybrid_7: it's possible the lyrics are different in the demo.

    General CommentThe line IS "fear is powerful".

    The lyrics are different, hence demo.

    General CommentThis is a great song, the extra rap verse is excellent...

    Inux101: you do realize you said homophobic 'ppl' are gay, isn't that an oxymoron? Yeah, way to let your ignorance be known, dumbass...
