LINKIN PARK


Blackbirds Lyrics

Drop that
Get up
Take to the streets
Better lock that kid up
Face full of teeth when he hock that spit up
Pacing the beat like a beast
Rocking the block on repeat
Speak from the cut like a rush of blood
Paint red on the sleeves of the ones you love
Lay the sick ones down and the bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes let the dead men sing

I shiver and shake the warm air cold
I'm alone on my own
In every mistake I dig this hole
Through my skin and bones

It's harder starting over
Than never to have changed

With blackbirds following me
I'm digging out my grave
They close in, swallowing me
The pain, it comes in waves
I'm getting back what I gave

I sweat through the sheet as daylight fades
As I waste away
It traps me inside mistakes I've made
That's the price I pay
It's harder starting over
Than never to have changed

With blackbirds following me
I'm digging out my grave
They close in, swallowing me
The pain, it comes in waves
I'm getting back what I gave

I drop to the floor like I did before
Stop watching
I'm coughing
I can't be more
What I want and what I need are at constant war
Like a well full of poison
A rotten core
The blood goes thin
The fever stings
And I shake from the hell that the habits bring
Let the sick ones down
The bells will ring
Put pennies on the eyes
Let the dead men sing
Blackbirds following me
I'm digging out my grave
They close in, swallowing me
The pain, it comes in waves
I'm getting back what I gave
I'm getting back what I gave

I think that this is about linkin park's sorrow from minutes to midnight and how people didn't like it. and also it's about all the negative feedback they got with A thousand suns (which is amazing)

This song is good. Very few songs off A Thousand Suns were ok. This song is great. I hear shades of the old LP in this song which is why I liked Minutes to Midnight. There were shades of LP in there.

This song is powerful. It speaks of someone in pain, trying to block out the pain with noise, and thoughts.

Once again linkin park beats everyone with their stunning records. They unquestionably the best thing that ever happened to the history of Rock and Nu metal.
