"Pts.of.athrty (Jay Gordon Remix)" as written by Robert G. Bourdon, Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Chester Charles Bennington and Joseph Hahn....
Forfeit the game before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame and puts your name to shame
Cover up your face you can’t run the race
The pace is too fast you just won't last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you’re never wrong
(You like to think you’re never wrong)
You want to act like you’re someone
(You want to act like you’re someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you’ve been through
You live what you learn

You love the things I say I'll do
The way I’ll hurt myself again just to get back at you
You take away when I give in
My life, my pride is broken

You like to think you’re never wrong
(You like to think you’re never wrong)
You want to act like you’re someone
(You want to act like you’re someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you’ve been through
(You live what you learn)

Forfeit the game before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame and puts your name to shame
Cover up your face you can’t run the race
The pace is too fast you just can’t last

Forfeit the game before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame and puts your name to shame
Cover up your face you can’t run the race
The pace is too fast you just can’t last

You like to think you’re never wrong
You want to act like you’re someone
You want someone to hurt like you
You want to share what you’ve been through

You like to think you’re never wrong
(You like to think you’re never wrong)
You want to act like you’re someone
(You want to act like you’re someone)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You want someone to hurt like you)
You want to share what you’ve been through
(You live what you learn)

    General CommentIsn't it supposed to be "the pace is too fast you just won't last" instead of "you just can't last"?

    General CommentI like this remix WAY better than the original song actually. Linkin Park is not my favorite band but I think Reanimation is gonna kick arse. The video for this song is incredible! You can check it out at launch.com.

    General Commentbah... i wouldn't wish TRL on my worst enemy...

    this song kicks arse but i was listening to the playback of reanimation and the only other songs i like are the in the end and pushing me away remixes... i wish one step closer was better cause it has my favorite singer on it (Jonathan Davis of KoRn)

    General Commentit has come to my attention that this song (and apparently the rest of the 'new' album) is rather tosh, and the stupid 'text message' style of writing names is infuriating also.
    i dont really think remix albums work, but i suppose each to his own
