"Part Of Me (Demo)" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Joseph Hahn and Mike Shinoda....
Part of me won't go away
Everyday reminded how much I hate it
Weighted against the consequences
Can't live without it so it's senseless
Wanna cut it out of my soul
And just live with a gaping hole
Find myself taking control
Of the situation
Responsible for its creation
Hang my head low cause it's part of me
You hardly see right hand to the heart of me
Heard of me the routine scar
New cuts cover where the old ones are
And now I'm sick of this
I can't stand the sandpaper thoughts that grade on my sanity
I rather not even be then the man that's staring in the mirror through me

Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me

Chorus
I feel it everyday
I feel I’m in my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

Freedom can be frightening if you’ve never felt it
Once it's been dealt with you feel like you've been touched by something angelic
and then melted down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Erect the gate of pain volition
Feel the rain of resolution
And then you start to see another piece of yourself that you can't let be
And that reason will last fight to free yourself
Take it to the depths of the bottom of the well
And now you know you can choose to lose the part in your heart
Where your insides bruise
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me
Cut myself free
Willingly stop just what's killing me

Chorus

This part of me won’t go away x2

Chorus x3

    General CommentThis should have been on Hybrid Theory, rather than the EP, same goes for High Voltage, but the remastered one. The album might have actually sold more than it already did.

    General CommentI may be mistaken but in the line "Erect the gate of pain volition" doesn't he say "eradicate the pain volition"? I love this song lol

    General CommentI prefer the demo to the actual EP version, i think the EP version is too full of mike, not really much of chester to be heard - the screaming gives it a kind of desparate notion the rapping just can't transfer
