    My New Song "Signs"

    I just wrote this song yesterday, and was wondering what you wonderful people of the Linkin Park world thought of it.

    Nice

    Your vocals remind me of James Blunt.

    I feel like we start getting into a really dangerous territory when we start trying to write around the idea of what some third-party thought of what our music should be when they can't even comprehend on how to tell us what that thing is, or guide us in a direction that can get us there musically or creatively, or anything. You know, having to have a specific type of song; forcing music to conform to that frame of mind is causing a lot of noise to be in and it's getting away from the song. (...) Let's stop trying to do things that other people want us to do, and let's get back to just being fluid, and writing songs, coming with ideas, and being like, "hey, let's check this out", and grading things, and being honest.

    Thanks guys. Being an avid LP fan, I'm inspired by them in two primary ways: their sense of melody, and their introspective lyric style.

    Yeah, I love the inversions in the lyrics.

    Well I had the rough chord progression down for a day or two, but when I really got serious it all fell together pretty effortlessly. I've had stuff that's been sitting around literally for years that I can't figure out what to do with, but this flowed really well. After the chord progression, the melodies for the verse and chorus came in about an hour, and after that the lyrics took about 45 minutes to write. And, actually the lead guitar part was a chorus melody I scrapped. Didn't sound good for the vocals, but translated well on guitar I thought. The actual recording probably took 4-5 hours.
