"The Morning After" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Amir Davidson and Ryan Christopher Shuck....
Caught up against the wall again,
Time to chill in the bar again,'
Never cease to amaze the thought in me,
I sleep, sleep, sleep, please don't,

Wake me 'til the morning after,
Wake me 'til the morning after,

Got confused by the thought again,
Lick my wounds like a dog again,
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel that I see, I see,
Please let it be, but don't,

Wake me 'til the morning after,
Wake me 'til the morning after,
Wake me 'til the morning after,

I'm so tired,
There has got to be an end,
To the pain I feel when I'm awake and alive,
Alive, alive, alive and I'm dreamin'

Caught up against the wall again,
Time to chill in the bar again,
Is that a light at the end of the tunnel that I see, I see,
Please let it be, but don't,

Wake me 'til the morning after,
Wake me 'til the morning after,
Wake me 'til the morning after,

I'm so tired,
There has got to be an end,
To the pain I feel when I'm awake and alive,
Alive, alive and dreamin'

    General Commentthe correct lyrics would be

    Caught up against the wall again,
    Tied the ball to he chain again,
    Never cease to amaze the thought in me,
    I sleep, sleep, sleep, please don't,

    Wake me 'til the morning after,
    Wake me 'til the morning after,

    Cut and bruised by the fall again,
    Lick my wounds like a dog again,
    Is that a light at the end of the tunnel that I see, I see,
    Please let it be, but don't,

    Wake me 'til the morning after,
    Wake me 'til the morning after,
    Wake me 'til the morning after,

    I'm so tired,
    There has got to be an end,
    To the pain I feel when I'm awake and alive,
    Alive, alive, alive and not dreamin'

    Caught up against the wall again,
    Tied the ball to he chain again,
    Is that a light at the end of the tunnel that I see, I see,
    Please let it be, but don't,

    Wake me 'til the morning after,
    Wake me 'til the morning after,
    Wake me 'til the morning after,

    I'm so tired,
    There has got to be an end,
    To the pain I feel when I'm awake and alive,
    Alive, alive, alive and not dreamin'
