    Only counting LP songs, not Fort Minor. What do you think are his best lyrics?

    His Fort Minor Rising Tied raps are shit man, not even worth mentioning. Some stuff like Spraypaint is decent but else...

    In the LP domain, I'd say probably High Voltage, And One (the outro), Part of Me, Forgotten, and Papercut.

    UNTIL IT BREAKS is also high up there, but I just want to mention that IMO its luster is fading, at least for me.

    I really enjoy the UIB rap he does over WFTE live, that one is really good, IMO. I also loved his rap in HHH (means a lot to me) and also his rap in songs like And One, High Voltage and Dedicated are all just awesome. I guess my all time favorite is the UIB verse, though.

    "Until It Breaks" is still hot to me but I can't pick out specific lines 'cause I just like the verses as a whole.

    My favourite lines from Shinoda's raps are probably: "... even the blueprint is a gift and a curse / 'cause, once you got a theory of how the thing works / everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first."

    Favorite rap lyrics come from Bleed It Out, When They come For Me, Forgotten, and I Have Not Begun.

    I've grown extremely fond to his rap in Until It Breaks, and I also really love I Have Not Begun.

    Spit drips from the jaw of the witless witness
    Cryptic colloquialism shifts your midrift
    Dark all I do embark the shadows
    Involved with my thought catalog, analogue, rap catalog
    Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistance
    The twisted list of tangled lies
    Strangles my hope to waste and numbs the taste
    And I'm forced to face these hate crimes
    Against the state of being
    Feeling the weight- less -ness pressed between the ceiling
    Reeling around room
    Riding a bubble of sound proof
    It's the frequency making you
    S-Shake with every boom
    Involuntary muscle contraction
    Ignoring then drinking musical gas fume euphoria
    The sound pounds to make the dead flush
    To have you a head rush with red rhymes and said stuff

    The first to come to mind include: Bleed It Out, Esaul, A Place For My Head, Wretches & Kings (not perfect, but I like the "pitch and the contact" part), I Have Not Begun, Papercut, With You... That's all I can think of that I like the most. Oh, and Until It Breaks. Duh.

    When They Come For Me, High Voltage, and Until It Breaks.

    Hands Held High is alright, but it talks at us instead of to us.

    Definitely the And One outro:
    Spit drips from the jaw of the witless witness
    Cryptic colloquialisms shift your mid rift
    Dog paddle through a bog of shadows and smog with my
    Thought catalog: analogue rap battle log
    Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistence
    The twisted web of tangled lies Strangles my hope to waste and numbs the taste
    And I'm forced to face these hate crimes Against the state of being
    Feeling the weightlessness press me to the ceiling
    Reeling around rooms
    Riding a bubble of sound
    Tuned to the frequency making your
    Chest shake with every boom
    Involuntary muscle contraction
    Ignoring your neck’s breaking
    Musical gas fume euphoria
    The sound pounds to make the dead flush
    To hand you a head rush with read thoughts and said stuff


    It's a shame he's not using that style of rhymes and raps anymore.

    Having said that Until it Breaks is amazing:
    You ain't got a sliver of a chance
    I get iller/I deliver/while you quiver in your pants

    I'm going with Blackbirds, I'm pretty surprised no one else has brought that one up yet.
