    As we'll as everyone I have yet to mention.
    And the entire Linkin Park Fan Community.

    ***LOST IN THE ECHO***

    Yeah, yo...

    You were that foundation/never gonna be another one, no.
    I followed, so taken, so conditioned, I could never let go.
    Then sorrow, then sickness, then the shock when you flipped it on me.
    So hollow, so vicious, so afraid I couldn't let myself see.
    That I could never be held, back or up, no, I hold myself.
    Check the rep, yep, you know my mine well./ Forget the rest, let them know my hell.
    There and back, yet my soul ain't sell./ Kept respect up. The rest, they failed.
    Let the rest be the tale they tell, that I was there saying:

    "In these promises broken: Deep below, each word gets lost in the echo.
    So one last lie I can see through, this time I've finally let you go."
    Go.

    Go...

    Test my will, test my heart.
    Let me tell you how the odd's gonna stack up.
    Y'all go hard? I go smart.
    How's it working out for y'all in the back, huh?
    I've seen that frustration, been crossed and lost and told "No"
    And I've come back unshaken, let down, and live and let go.

    So you can let it be known, I don't hold back, I hold my own.
    I can't be mapped, I can't be cloned./I can't C-FLAT, it ain't my tone.
    I can't fall back, I came too far. Hold myself up and learn my scars.
    Let the bells ring wherever they are, cause I was there saying:

    "In these promises broken: Deep below, each word gets lost in the echo.
    So one last lie I can see through, this time I've finally let you !go!."

    No, you can tell 'em all now; I don't back up, I don't back down.
    I don't fold up and I don't bow. I don't roll over, don't know how.
    I don't care where the enemies are. I can't be stopped, all I know: go hard.
    Won't forget how I got this far but every time saying:

    "In these promises broken, deep below, each word gets lost in the echo.
    So one last lie I can see through, this time I've finally let you go."

    Go...
    Go.

    Go... Go...
    Go...


    ***IN MY REMAINS***

    Separate: Sifting through the wreckage, I can't concentrate.
    Searching for a message in the fear and pain.
    Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive.

    Now in my remains are promises that never came.
    Set the silence free to wash away the worst of me.

    Come apart: Falling in the cracks of every broken heart.
    Digging through the wreckage of your disregard.
    Sinking down and waiting for the chance to feel alive.

    Now in my remains are promises that never came.
    Set the silence free to wash away the worst of me.

    Like an army falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army falling, one by one by one.

    Like an army falling, one by one by one.
    Like an army falling, one by one by one.

    Now in my remains are promises that never came.
    (One by one, one by one. One by one by one.)
    Set the silence free to wash away the worst of me.
    (One by one, one by one. One by one by one.)

    Like an army falling, one by one by one.
    (One by one, one by one. One by one by one.)
    Like an army falling, one by one by one.
    (One by one, one by one. One by one by one.)


    ***BURN IT DOWN***

    The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky.
    All that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find.
    And you were there at the turn, waiting to let me know...

    We're building it up to break it back down.
    We're building it up to burn it down.
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground.

    The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down.
    And you were there at the turn, caught in the burning glow.
    And I was there at the turn, waiting to let you know.

    We're building it up to break it back down.
    We're building it up to burn it down.
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground.

    You told me "Yes.", you held me high. And I believed when you told that lie.
    I played soldier, you played king you struck me down, when I kissed that ring.
    You lost that right, to hold that crown, I built you up, but you let me down.
    So when you fall, I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn.

    And you were there at the turn, waiting to let me know.

    We're building it up to break it back down.
    We're building it up to burn it down.
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground.

    When you fall, I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn.

    We can't wait to burn it to the ground.

    When you fall, I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn.

    We can't wait to burn it to the ground.

    ***LIES GREED MISERY***

    I'ma be that nail in your coffin. Sayin' that I soften?
    I was duckin' down to reload, so you can save your petty explanations.
    I don't have the patience. Before you even say it, I know.
    You won't let your pride or your ego talk slick to me, no.
    That is not the way I get down and look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show you exactly how the breaking point sounds.

    I wanna see you choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    Choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    What is it you want me to tell ya?
    I am not the failure.
    I would rather live and let be.
    But you came with the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you know you can't intimidate me.
    You disrespect me so clearly/Now you better hear me.
    That is not the way it goes down.
    You did it to yourself and it's over.
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sounds.

    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery (x2)

    I wanna see you choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    Choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    You did it to yourself...
    (x4)

    You did it to yourself!
    (x4)

    I wanna see you choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.
    Choke on your lies.
    Swallow up your greed.
    Suffer all alone in your misery.

    ***I'LL BE GONE***

    Like shining oil, this night is dripping down.
    Stars are slipping down, glistening.
    And I'm trying not to think what I'm leaving now
    and no deceiving now.
    It's time you let me know.
    Let me know...

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes -
    out there in the silence, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise -
    climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.

    This air between us is getting thinner now.
    Into winter now, bittersweet.
    And across that horizon, this sun is setting down
    and you're forgetting now, it's time you let me go.
    Let me go...

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes -
    out there in the silence, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise,
    climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.

    And tell them I couldn't help myself
    And tell them I was alone.
    Oh, tell me I am the only one
    and there's nothing left to stop me.

    When the lights go out and we open our eyes -
    out there in the silence, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.
    Let the sun fade out and another one rise,
    climbing through tomorrow, I'll be gone.
    I'll be gone.

    I'll be gone.

    ***CASTLE OF GLASS***

    Take me down to the river-bend, take me down to the fighting end.
    Wash the poison from off my skin, show me how to be whole again.

    Fly me up on a silver wing, past the black where the sirens sing.
    Warm me up in a nova's glow and drop me down to the dream below.

    Because I'm only a crack in this "Castle of Glass", Hardly anything there for you to see.
    For you to see...

    Bring me home in a blinding dream, through the secrets that I have seen.
    Wash the sorrow from off my skin, then show me how to be whole again.

    Because I'm only a crack in this "Castle of Glass", Hardly anything there for you to see.
    For you to see...

    Cause I'm only a crack in this "Castle of Glass", hardly anything else I need to be.

    Because I'm only a crack in this "Castle of Glass", Hardly anything there for you to see.
    For you to see...

    ***VICTIMIZED***

    No regret for the confidence betrayed, no more hiding in shadow.
    Because I won't wait for the debt to be repaid.
    Time has come for you...

    Victimized, victimized.
    Never again... Victimized.

    Victimized, victimized.
    Never again... Victimized.

    They're acting like they want a riot, it's a riot I'll give 'em.
    As a siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm.
    Threw your snakes in the grass, supplying the venom.
    I ain't scared of your teeth, I admire what's in 'em.
    You've been waiting in the shadows there, thinking you're hidden.
    But the truth is you don't have the stomach to get 'em.
    Lauryn already hit 'em, yeah you've got to be kiddin.
    Wanna talk about a victim? Imma put you there with 'em.

    Victimized, victimized.
    Never again...Victimized.

    ***ROADS UNTRAVELED***

    Weep not for roads untraveled, weep not for paths left 'lone.
    Because beyond every bend is a long blinding end.
    It's the worse kind of pain I've known.

    Give up your heart left broken and let that mistake pass on.
    Because the love that you lost wasn't worth what it cost.
    And in time you'll be glad it's gone.

    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Oooooo-Oh-
    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Ooo-ooo-Oh-

    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Ooo-ooo-Oh-

    Weep not for roads untraveled, weep not for sights unseen.
    May your love never end and if you need a friend:
    There's a seat here along side me.

    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Oooooo-Oh-
    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Ooo-ooo-Oh-

    (Ahhhh,ahh,ahh,ahhh,ahhh
    Ahhhh,ahh,ahh,ahhh,ahhh)

    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Oooooo-Oh-
    Wo-Wo-Oooo-Oh-Woah-Ooooo-Oh.
    Wo-Wo-Woah-Oooo-Oooo-Woah-Ooo-ooo-Oh-

    .

    ***SKIN TO BONE***

    Skin to bone and steel to rust. Ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Let tomorrow have its way with the promises we made.
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Ash to ashes, dust to dust. Your deception, my disgust.
    When your name is finally drawn, I'll be happy that you're gone.
    Ash to ashes, dust to dust.

    Ahhhh...
    Ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Ahhhh...
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Right to left, left to right. Night to day and day to night.
    As the starlight fades to grey, I'll be marching far away.
    Right to left and left to right.

    Ahhhh...
    Ash to ashes, dust to dust.
    Ahhhh...
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Let tomorrow have its way with the promises we chase.
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    Skin to bone and steel to rust.
    Skin to bone and steel to rust.

    ***UNTIL IT BREAKS***

    (It goes 'a: One..)

    It's goes 'a:

    One..
    Two...
    Three.

    I was born the hunger of a lion, the strength of a sun.
    I don't need to sweat it when the competition come.
    Original style like an 808 drum, so I don't run the track.
    No, I make the track run.
    My mama taught me words, my daddy built rockets.
    I put 'em both together. Now, tell me what I got.
    It's a pretty smart weapon:
    I can shoot it, I can drop it.
    But learn to respect it because you surely can't stop it like that.

    It ain't over 'cause the shark's on the left side, the snake's on the right.
    And anything you do, they wanna get a little bite.
    It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right.
    Cause once you get the teeth in, nothing really fights.
    Except for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose.
    And you can run your mouth or you could try to fill my shoes.
    But steady little solider, I ain't standing next to you.
    I'd be laying on the ground before you're even in my view.
    Like that.

    Give me the strength of the rising sun.
    Give me the truth of the words unsung.
    And when the last bells ring, the poor men sing
    "Bring me to kingdom come"

    This is something for your people on the block to blackout and rock to.
    Give you what you need like Papa/Who Shot Ya?
    Separate the weak from the obsolete, ya meek, I creep hard on imposters.
    I switch styles on the dime, quick witted
    Ya'll quit Tripping, I don't have time for your crying.
    I grind tough, sucker, make your mind up.
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the line-up?
    Bang bang/Little monkey man playing with the big guns -
    will only get you slain I ain't playing.
    I'm just saying you ain't gotta sliver of a chance.
    I get iller I deliver while you quiver in your pants.
    So shake, shake-down/Money, here's the break down
    You can play the bank/I'ma play the bank take down
    And no mistakes now/I'm coming to getcha
    I'm just a Banksy/You're a Brainwash, get the picture?
    It's like that..

    We swim against the rising waves and crash against the shore.
    The body bends until it breaks, the early morning sings no more.

    So rest your head, it's time to sleep and dream of what's in store.
    The body bends until it breaks, then sings again no more.

    'Cause time has torn the flesh away, the early morning sings no more...

    ***TINFOIL***

    [No Lyrics: Instrumental interlude into Powerless]

    ***POWERLESS***

    You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine.
    You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind.
    I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through.
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose.

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall.
    You held it all and I was by your side, powerless.

    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end.
    I'm left with emptiness that words cannot defend.
    You'll never know what I became because of you.
    Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose.

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall.
    You held it all and I was by your side, powerless.

    Ohhhh...

    And you held it all but you were careless to let it fall.
    And you held it all and I was by your side, powerless.

    Ohhhh...

    Powerless...

    Powerless...

    I'm almost 100% sure these are correct:

    ROADS UNTRAVELED

    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for paths left alone
    'Cuz beyond every bend
    Is a long blinding end
    It's the worst kind of pain I've known

    Give up your heart left broken
    And let that mistake pass on
    'Cuz the love that you lost
    Wasn't worth what it cost
    And in time you'll be glad it's gone

    Whoa-oh…

    Weep not for roads untraveled
    Weep not for sights unseen
    May your love never end
    And if you need a friend
    There's a seat here alongside me

    Whoa-oh…

    LOST IN THE ECHO

    [Intro]
    Yeah, yo…

    [V1]
    You were that/Foundation
    Never gonna be another one/No
    I followed/So taken
    So conditioned I could never let go
    Then sorrow/Then sickness
    Then the shock when you flip it on me
    So hollow/So vicious
    So afraid I couldn’t let myself see
    That I could never be held
    Back or up no/Or hold myself
    Check the rep yep/You know mine well
    Forget the rest let/Them know my hell
    There and back yep/My soul ain’t sell
    Get respect off the best/They fell
    Let the rest be the tail they tell
    That I was there sayin’

    [Chorus]
    And these promises/Broken
    Deep below/Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie/I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go… Go… Go…

    [V2]
    Test my will/Test my heart
    Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
    Y’all go hard?/I go smart
    How’s it working every isle in the back huh?
    I’ve seen that/Frustration
    Been ‘cross the loss a tall new
    And I’ve come back/Unshaken
    Let down/I lived and let go
    So you can let it be known
    I don’t hold back/I hold my own
    I can’t be mapped/I can’t be cloned
    I can’t see flat/It ain’t my tone
    I can’t fall back/I came too far
    Hold myself up and lower my scars
    Let the bells ring wherever they are
    ‘Cause I was there saying

    [Chorus]
    And these promises/Broken
    Deep below/Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie/I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go!

    [V3]
    No!/You can tell 'em all now
    I don't back up/I don't back down
    I don't fold up/And I don't bow
    I don't roll over/Don't know how
    I don't care/Where/The enemies are
    Can't be stopped [I know go hard?]
    Won't forget how I got this far
    But every time sayin'

    [Chorus]
    And these promises/Broken
    Deep below/Each word gets lost in the echo
    So one last lie/I can see through
    This time I finally let you
    Go... Go... Go...

    [Outro]
    Go... Go... Go..

    __________________________________________
    IN MY REMAINS

    [V1]
    Seperate/Sifting through the wreckage
    I can't concentrate/Searching for a message
    In the fear and pain/Broken down and waiting
    For the chance/To feel alive

    [Chorus]
    Now in my remains
    Our promises that never came
    'Cept this silent rain
    To wash away the worst of me

    [V2] 1:13
    Come apart/Falling in the cracks
    Of every broken heart/Digging through the wreckage
    Of your disregard/Sinking down and waiting
    For the chance/To feel alive

    [Chorus]
    Now in my remains
    Our promises that never came
    'Cept this silent rain
    To wash away the worst of me

    [Bridge]
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one

    [Chorus]
    Now in my remains
    Our promises that never came
    'Cept this silent rain
    To wash away the worst of me

    [Outro]
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one
    Like an army, falling
    One by one by one...

    I'LL BE GONE

    [V1]
    Like shining oil/This night is dripping down
    Stars are slipping down/Glistening
    When I'm trying not to think what I am leaving now
    And no deceiving now/It's time you let me know
    Let me know...

    [Chorus]
    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...
    Let the sun die out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...

    [V2]
    The sun between us/Is getting thinner now
    Into winter now/Bitter sweet
    And crossed out her eyes/The sun is settin' down
    You're forgetting now/It's time to let me go
    Let me go...

    [Chorus]
    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...
    Let the sun die out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...

    [Bridge]
    And tell them I..
    Couldn't help myself
    And tell them I...
    Was alone... Huh-oh
    Tell me I am the only one
    And there's nothing left to stop me

    [Chorus]
    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...
    Let the sun die out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I'll be gone... I'll be gone...

    I'll be gone!

    ROADS UNTRAVELLED

    [V1]
    Weep not for roads untravelled
    Weep not for paths left alone
    'Cause beyond every bend
    Is a long blinding end
    It's the worst kind of pain
    I've known...
    Give up your heart left broken
    And let that mistake pass on
    'Cause the love that you lost
    Wasn't worth what it cost
    And in time you'll be glad it's gone...

    [Chorus]
    Woah-oo-oh-oh
    Woah-oo-ohh
    Woah-oo-oh-oh
    Woah-oo-ohh

    [V2]
    Weep not for roads untravelled
    Weep not for sights unseen
    May your love never end
    And if you need a friend
    There's a seat here alongside me

    [Chorus]
    Woah-oo-oh-oh
    Woah-oo-ohh
    Woah-oo-oh-oh
    Woah-oo-ohh

    UNTIL IT BREAKS

    [Intro]
    It goes a one...
    Two... Three...

    [V1]
    With the hunger of a lion/The strength of a sun
    I don't need to sweat it when the competition come
    Original style/Like a 808 drum
    So I don't run the track/No, I make the track run
    My momma taught me words/My daddy built rockets
    I put 'em both together now/Tell me what I got it's
    A pretty small weapon/I can shoot it I can drop it
    But/learn to respect it 'cause you clearly can't stop it
    Like that...

    [V2]
    It ain't over
    'Cause the sharks on the left side/The snakes on the right
    And anything you do/They wanna get a little bite
    It really doesn't matter if you're wrong or if you're right
    'Cause once they get their teeth in nothing really fights
    And razzle me I do it like I got nothin' to lose
    And you can run your mouth like you could try to fill my shoes
    But steady little soldier/I ain't standin' next to you
    I can lay it on the ground before you're even in my view
    Like that...

    [V3]
    Give me the strength of the rising sun
    Give me the truth of the words unsung
    And when the last bells ring/The poor men sing
    Bring me to kingdom come

    [V4]
    This is something for your people on the block to
    Blackout and rock to/Give you what you need
    Like "Papa who shot you?"/Seperate the weak from the obsolete
    Too meek/I creep hard on impostors
    And switch styles on the dime/Quick-witted y'all
    Quit trippin' I don't have time for your crying
    I grind tough/Sucka, make your mind up
    Are you in the firing squad or are you in the line-up?
    Bang, bang/Little monkey-man,
    Playin' with the big guns only get you slain
    I ain't playin'/I'm just sayin
    You ain't got a sliver of a chance
    I get ill or I deliver while you quiver in your parents
    So shake, shake-down/Money, here's the break down
    You can play the bank/I'ma play the bank take down
    And no mistakes now I'm comin' to getcha
    I'm just a Banksy/You're a Brainwash/Get the picture?
    It's like that...

    [V5 - Brad Singing!!!]
    We swim against the rising waves
    That crash against the shore
    The body bends until it breaks
    The early morning sings no more
    So rest your head
    It's time to sleep
    And dream of what's in store
    The body bends until it breaks
    And sings again no more
    'Cause time has torn the flesh away
    The early morning sings no more

    POWERLESS

    [V1]
    You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
    You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
    I saw the evidence/The crimson soaking through
    Ten thousand promises/Ten thousand ways to lose

    [Chorus]
    And you held it all
    But you were careless
    To let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless...

    [V2]
    I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
    I'm left with emptiness that words cannot defend
    You'll never know what I became because of you
    Ten thousand promises/Ten thousand ways to lose

    [Chorus] x2
    And you held it all
    But you were careless
    To let it fall
    You held it all
    And I was by your side
    Powerless...

    Powerless...
    Powerless...

    LIES GREED MISERY

    [Verse 1]
    I'ma be that nail in your coffin
    Sayin' that I soften
    I was duckin' down to reload
    So you can save your petty explanations
    I don't have the patience
    Before you even say it I know
    You let your pride and your ego
    Talk slick to me no
    That is not the way I get down
    And look at how you lose your composure
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sound

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Verse 2]
    What is it you want me to tell ya?
    I am not the failure
    I would rather live and let be
    But you can't make the right kinda threat to
    Push me to let you/No you can't intimidate me
    Disrespect me so clearly/Now you better hear me
    That is not the way it goes down
    You did it to yourself and it's over
    Now let me show ya/Exactly how the breaking point sound

    [Chorus] x2
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    [Bridge]
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!
    You did it to yourself!

    [Chorus]
    I wanna see you choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery
    Choke on your lies
    Swallow up your greed
    Suffer all alone in your misery

    BURN IT DOWN

    [V1]
    The cycle repeated/As explosions broke in the sky
    All that I needed/Was the one thing I couldn't find

    [Bridge]
    And you were there at the turn/Waiting to let me know

    [Chorus]
    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    [V2]
    The colors conflicted/As the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this/But couldn't stop from tearing it down

    [Extended Bridge]
    And you were there at the turn/Caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn/Waiting to let you know

    [Chorus]
    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    [V3]
    You told me yes/You held me high
    And I believed when you told that lie
    I played soldier/You played king
    You struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right/To hold that crown
    I built you up but you let me down
    So when you fall/I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames as your blazes burn

    [Bridge]
    And you were there at the turn/Waiting to let me know...

    [Chorus]
    We're building it up
    To break it back down
    We're building it up
    To burn it down
    We can't wait
    To burn it to the ground

    [Outro]
    [When you fall/I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames as your blazes burn]
    We can't wait/To burn it to the ground
    [When you fall/I'll take my turn
    And fan the flames as your blazes burn]
    We can't wait/To burn it to the ground

    Epiksha, you posted LITE twice

    Thanx for the transcriptions tho! Though on RU I believe it's "Paths left alone" cuz "passed left alone" just really doesn't make any sense...

    And on COG it's "sirens" not Simons... Lol

    Just reading these and not hearing them, they could be LP's best lyrics yet, if not right behind ATS.
    And as we walk out through the cords, into the webs
    Our blood thrashing to a different cask
    We will see a square to hold us all, that carries out all eagerness
    In light and in pastures, in sound and space
    In perspiration and in ache, in coil and blaze
    In respect and in futility, in peace and quality
    Everyone will claim their place, together.
    Eternally.

    I made some corrections to I'll Be Gone (mostly to the second verse) and I believe it's 100% accurate now:

    I'LL BE GONE

    Like shining oil, this night is dripping down
    Stars are slipping down, glistening
    And I’m trying not to think what I’m leaving now
    No deceiving now
    It’s time you let me know
    Let me know

    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Let the sun fade out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone

    This air between us is getting thinner now
    Into winter now, bitter sweet
    And crossed that horizon the sun is setting down
    You’re forgetting now
    It’s time you let me go
    Let me go

    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Let the sun fade out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone

    And tell them I couldn’t help myself
    And tell them I was alone
    Tell me I am the only one
    And there’s nothing left to stop me

    When the lights go out
    And we open our eyes
    Out there in the silence
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone
    Let the sun fade out
    And another one rise
    Climbing through tomorrow
    I’ll be gone
    I’ll be gone

    I’ll be gone

    Okay, after hours and hours away doing extensive listening I came up with what I think are very correct lyrics.
    They are in my first post.
