"When They Come For Me" as written by Chester Charles Bennington, Robert G. Bourdon, Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda, Dave Farrell and Joseph Hahn....
Yeah,
I am not a pattern to be followed
The pill that I'm on
Is a tough one to swallow
I'm not a criminal
Not a role model
Not a born leader
I'm a tough act to follow

I am not the fortunate and the fame
Or the same verse I'm telling you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
And I found out the underbelly is sicker than it seems
And it seems ugly, but it can get worse
'Cause even the blueprint is a gift and a curse
'Cause once you have the theory of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first

And I'm not a robot
I'm not a monkey
I will not dance even if the beat's funky
Opposite of lazy, far from a punk ya'll
Stop talking, start tryna catch up mother fucker

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

Tryin' to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

Lauren said money changes situations
Big said it increases the complication
Kane said don't stab, I ain't the one
Chuck said that an Uzi weigh a mother fucking ton
And I'm just a student of the game that they taught me
Rocking every stage and every place that they brought me
I'm awfully underrated
But can be corrected

And so this second I'm gonna save it for the record
I am the opposite of whack
Opposite of weak
Opposite of slack
Standing in the heat
Standing in a crack
Closest to a beat, far from a punk
Ya'll outta stop talking, start tryna catch up mother fucker
And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah

And all the people say
Aah, aah, aah

Trying to catch up mother fucker

Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah

    General Commentomg I loveeee this song :) plus the entire album~ it's just so...amazing. even though LP's style has changed and their experimenting with new stuff, I like it and will support them all the way! I can't help but agree with SusieB's meaning of the song. it makes a lot of sense since some LP fans weren't too happy about the new album. also the lyrics on here are pretty much correct, but here's some edits (I bought the CD + DVD package online and of course it came with the lyrics to all the songs lol. but I gotta give props to the user for getting most of the lyrics right :D):

    I am not
    A pattern to be followed
    The pill that I'm on is a tough one to swallow
    I'm not a criminial
    Not a role model
    Not a born leader, I'm a tough act to follow
    I am not
    The fortune and the fame
    Nor the same person telling you to forfeit the game
    I came in the ring like a dog on a chain

    And I found out the underbelly's sicker than it seems
    And it seems ugly
    But it can get worse
    'Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
    'Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works
    Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first
    And I'm not a robot
    I'm not a monkey
    I will not dance even if the beat's funky
    Opposite of lazy
    Far from a punk
    Y'all ought to stop talking
    Start trying to catch up motherf**ker

    And all the people say
    Oh
    Trying to catch up mother**ker

    Lauryn said money change a situation
    Big said it increase the complication
    Kane said don't step
    I ain't the one
    Chuck said that UZI weigh a motherf**kin' ton

    And I'm just a student of the game that they taught me
    Rock in every stage, in every place that it brought me
    I'm awfully underrated
    But came here to correct it
    And so it ain't mistakin', Imma state it for the record
    I am the opposite of wack
    Opposite of weak
    Opposite of slack
    Synonym of heat
    Synonym of crack
    Closest to the peak
    Far from a punk
    Y'all ought to stop talking
    Trying to catch up motherf**ker

    And all the people say
    Oh
    Trying to catch up motherf**ker

    Oh
    When they come for me
    Come for me
    I'll be gone

    Oh
    When they come for me
    Come for me
    I'll be gone

    Oh
    When they come for me
    Come for me
    I'll be gone

    And all the people say
    Oh
    Trying to catch up motherf**ker

    And all the people say
    Oh
    Trying to catch up motherf**ker
