Very interesting. I've always had trouble connecting to BID because of the weird "personal" take on the song. However in the political context it makes a very good point. Your interpretation reminds me of everything that is occurring in Syria right now where the citizens are banning against their president. Thanks for writing your interpretation. I really enjoyed it. People are doing great with their interpretations! I want to read more, more, more. Yeah, I agree WTCFM is just about impossible to relate to politically on its own. However, I've always seen WTCFM as a part of the concept album story. Within the story the main character would be of course escaping "haughtily" from their pursuer saying "Try to catch up motherfucker" and "when they come for me, I'll be gone". It's the part of the story where the character is being very cocky of themselves. As for The Messenger, I think it fits perfectly within the concept story. It's kind of that conclusion chapter of a story where the author puts in a summary and final input on the themes of the story. The Messenger offers Linkin Park's view on how humanity can deal with the horrors described in the story. Where nuclear destruction, mankind's self destruction, hate, and government turmoil can all be fixed with our love for each other: "love keeps us kind"
