A thousand suns lyrics - Linkin Park

Linkin Park - A thousand suns Lyrics
Linkin Park is an American band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album, Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-platinum in several other countries. Its following studio album, Meteora, continued the band’s success, topping the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world. In 2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth greatest band of the music video era and the third best of the new millennium behind Oasis and Coldplay. Having adapted the nu metal and rap metal genres to a radio-friendly yet densely layered style in Hybrid Theory and Meteora, the band explored other genres i... more...

1. "The requiem" lyrics

God save us every one
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
For the sins of our hand
The sins of our tongue
The sins of our father
The sins of our young
 
2. "The radiance" lyrics

"We knew the world would not be the same.
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita.
Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty, and to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form, and says,
'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.'
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another."
 
3. "Burning in the skies" lyrics

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies
I filled my cup with the rising of the sea
And poured it out in an ocean of debris
Oh

I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve

We held our breath when the clouds began to form
But you were lost in the beating of the storm
And in the end we were made to be apart
Like separate chambers of the human heart
No

I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
It's in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve

I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
The blame is mine alone / for bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve

I used the deadwood to make the fire rise
The blood of innocence burning in the skies

5. "When they come for me" lyrics

I am not a pattern that we follow
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 fortune and the fame
Or the same person telling you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
And found out the underbelly's sicker than it seems
And it seems ugly but it can get worse
Because even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
Because once you got a theory of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be 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
Stop talking and start trying to catch up motherfucker

And all the people say
Try and catch up motherfucker

Pac said money changes situation
Big said it increase the complication
Kaine said don't step I ain't the one
Chuck said an uzi weighs a motherfucking tone
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 pay me to correct it
And so it ain't mistaken I'm gonna state it for the record
I am the opposite of where I got this
A weak opposite, a slack sending them
A heat sending them
A crack closest to a peak
Far from a punk
Ya'll better start trying to catch up motherfucker

And all the people say
Try and catch up motherfucker

But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone
But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone
But when they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone

And all the people say
Try to catch up motherfucker
And all the people say
Try to catch up motherfucker
 
6. "Robot boy" lyrics

You say you're not going to fight
Because no one will fight for you
And you think there's not enough love
And no one to give it to
And you're sure you've hurt for so long
You've got nothing left to lose
So you say you're not going to fight
Because no one will fight for you

You say the weight of the world
Has kept you from letting go
And you think compassion's a flaw
And you'll never let it show
And you're sure you've hurt in a way
That no one will ever know

But someday the weight of the world
Will give you strength to go

Hold on, the weight of the world
Will give you the strength to go
So hold on, the weight of the world
Will give you the strength to go
So hold on, the weight of the world
Will give you the strength to go
Just hold, on the weight of the world
Will give you the strength to go

8. "Waiting for the end" lyrics Waiting for the end Youtube video included

(Yeah. Yo)
This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
Though the words sound steady, something empty's within 'em

We say: "yeah" with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
'Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and fear
Until we dead it, forget it, let it all disappear

Waiting for the end to come, wishing I had strength to stand
This was not what I had planned
It's out of my control
Flying at the speed of light, thoughts were spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It's hard to let you go

(oh..!)I know what it takes to move on
(oh..!)I know how it feels to lie
(oh..!)All I want to do is trade this life for somethin new
Holding on to what I haven't got

Sitting in an empty room, trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last
I wish it wasn't so

(oh..!)I know what it takes to move on
(oh..!)I know how it feels to lie
(oh..!)All I want to do is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

(Yeah, yeah)
What was left when that fire was gone
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it's like moving on

And I don't even know what kind of things I said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead so
Picking up the pieces now where to begin
The hardest part of ending is starting again

All I want to do is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven't got

This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every revision
(I'm holding on to what I haven't got)
But you listen through the tone and the violent rhythm and
Though the words sound steady, something empty's within 'em

We say: "yeah" with fists flying up in the air
Like we're holding onto something that's invisible there
(Holding on to what I haven't got)
'Cause we're living at the mercy of the pain and fear
Until we dead it, forget it, let it all disappear.
 
9. "Blackout" lyrics

I'm stuck in this bed you made
Alone with a sinking feeling
I saw through the words you said
To the secrets you've been keeping
It's written upon your face
All the lies how they cut so deeply
You can't get enough you take
And take and take and never say

No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down
Black out
Blood in your eye

You say that it's not your fault
And swear that I am mistaken
You said it's not what it seems
No remorse for the trust you're breaking
You run but then back you fall
Suffocate in the mess you're making
You can't get enough you take
And take and take and take and take
Fuck it
Are you listening?

No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down / You push it back down
No / you've gotta get it inside
You push it back down / You push it back down
No / you'll never get it inside
Push it back down
Black out
Blood in your eye

Floating down / as colors fill the light
We look up from the ground / in fields of paperwhite
And floating up / you pass us in the night
A future gazing out / a past to overwrite
So come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect the things you know
Come down / far below
We've been waiting to collect what you've let go

Come down
Oh
 
10. "Wretches and kings" lyrics

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop.” -Mario Savio

To save face / how low can you go
Talk a lot of game but yet you don't know
Static on the way / make us all say whoa
The people up top push the people down low
Get down
And obey every word
Steady getting mine if you haven't yet heard
Wanna take what I got / don't be absurd
Don't fight the power / nobody gets hurt
If you haven't heard yet then I'm letting you know
There ain't shit we don't run when the guns unload
And no one make a move unless my people say so
Got everything under control
Now everybody go

Steel unload / final blow
We the animals take control
Hear us now / clear and true
Wretches and kings we come for you

So keep pace / how slow can you go
Talk a lot of shit and yet you don't know
Fire on the way / make you all say whoa
The people up top and the people down low
Get down
And I'm running it like that
The front of the attack is exactly where I'm at
Somewhere in between the kick and the hi hat
The pen and the contract
The pitch and the contact
So get with the combat / I'm letting ‘em know
There ain't shit you can say to make me back down no
So / push the button let the whole thing blow
Spinning everything outta control
Now everybody go

Steel unload / final blow
We the animals take control
Hear us now / clear and true
Wretches and kings we come for you
Steel unload / fire blow
Filthy animals / beat them low
Skin and bone / black and blue
No more this sun shall beat onto you

From the front to the back and the side to side
If you feel what I feel put ‘em up real high

“There's a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all” -Mario Savio
 
11. "Wisdom, justice and love" lyrics

“I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice.
A true revolution of values will lay hands on the world order and say of war: "This way of settling differences is not just." This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into veins of people normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice and love.“

(Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence By Rev. Martin Luther King - 4 April 1967)
 
12. "Irisdescent" lyrics

When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down
Insides crying, "Save me now"
You were there impossibly alone

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up hope but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go

And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
You felt the gravity of tempered grace
Falling into empty space
No one there to catch you in their arms

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up hope but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go
Let it go
 
13. "Fallout" lyrics

I'm swimming in the smoke / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
It's in the blackened bones / of bridges I have burned
So don't apologize / I'm losing what I don't deserve
What I don't deserve
 
14. "The catalyst" lyrics The catalyst Youtube video included

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun

Oh
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand?
The sins of our tongue?
The sins of our father?
The sins of our young?
No

God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?
For the sins of our hand?
The sins of our tongue?
The sins of our father?
The sins of our young?
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light
God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns?

Oh
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Oh
Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Lift me up
Let me go
Lift me up
Let me go (x3)

Lift me up
Let me go
(It can't be outfought) Lift me up
(It can't be outdone)
(It can't be outmatched) Let me go
(It can't be outrun, no)

(God bless us everyone) Lift me up
(We're a broken people living under loaded gun) Oh-oh-oh
(And it can't be outfought) Oh-oh-oh
(It can't be outdone) Oh-oh-oh
(It can't be outmatched) Oh-oh-oh
(It can't be outrun, no) Oh-oh-oh

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
 
15. "The messenger" lyrics

When you feel you're alone
Cut off from this cruel world
Your instincts telling you to run
Listen to your heart
Those angel voices
They'll sing to you / they'll be your guide back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind

When you've suffered enough
And your spirit is breaking
You're growing desperate from the fight
Remember you're loved and you always will be
This melody will bring you right back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind
