"A Light That Never Comes" as written by Steven Hiroyuki Aoki, Chester Bennington, Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, David Farrell, Joseph Hahn and Mike Shinoda....
Nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me, cannot hold me
You cannot stop, much less control me
When it rains, it pours, when the floodgates open brace your shores
That pressure don't care when it breaks your doors
Say it's all you can take, better take some more

(Oh)
'Cause I know what it's like to test fate
Had my shoulders pressed with that weight
Stood up strong in spite of that hate

(Oh)
Night gets darkest right before dawn
What don't kill you makes you more strong
And I been waiting for it so long

The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for a light that never comes

Oh
Oh
Oh
Waiting for a light that never comes

When I was young, they told me, they said
Make your bed, you lie in that bed
A king can only reign 'til instead
There comes that day it's "off with his head"

(Oh)
The night gets darkest right before dawn
What don't kill you makes you more strong
You'll have my mercy then when you're gone

The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for a light that never comes

Oh
Oh
Oh
Waiting for a light that never comes

And I told them, nah, you don't know me
Lightning above and a fire below me
You cannot catch me, cannot hold me
You cannot stop, much less control me
When it rains, it pours
When the floodgates open, brace your shores
That pressure don't care, it breaks your doors
Say it's all you can take, better take some more

Oh
Oh
Oh
Waiting for a light that never comes

The nights go on
Waiting for a light that never comes
I chase the sun
Waiting for a light that never comes

Oh
Oh
Oh
Waiting for a light that never comes

    My InterpretationI'm going to get a lot of flak for this, but I think this is a Satanic song.

    Try to see where this is coming from before you make assumptions.

    -- "Lightning above and a fire below me"
    Jesus told followers that he beheld Satan 'as lightning fall from heaven.'
    A lightning bolt is a Satanic symbol.
    The fire is hell.
    What else would this line mean, anyway?

    -- "When it rains, it pours"
    -- "When the floodgates open brace your shores"
    Satan is sometimes referred to as "rain man".

    -- "You cannot catch me, cannot hold me"
    -- "You cannot stop, much less control me"
    The rest of the verse is things that Satan would say to believers.

    -- "The nights go on / Waiting for a light that never comes"
    In an increasingly secular society, how should this line be interpreted?
    -- "I chase the sun / Waiting for a light that never comes"
    Sun worship. The entire song follows this doubting God theme.

    -- "A king can only reign 'til instead
    -- There comes that day it's "off with his head""
    Reference to God. Think songs like "Morte et Dabo" by Asking Alexandria

    I know Chester said he believes in God, but the media has taken a very dark turn lately, and these sorts of lines come up fairly often nowadays, though sometimes more subtly than in this song. Please take this submission seriously.
