    In My Remains
    On the hook... can it be:

    Now In My Remains, are promises that never came
    instead of "our promises, they never came"

    that's what I hear

    Edit:

    In Lost In The Echo:
    instead of: This time I've finally let you go"
    isn't it: This time I finally let you go
    ?

    In Castle Of Glass:
    instead of: Warm me up in the novice glow
    isn't it: Warm me up in the nova's glow
    ?
    And one last thing... are you sure it's "Drain below"? I hear something like "Dream" but I'm not sure of this one.

    I'm not too sure either to me it can be anything between 'dream', 'drink' and 'drain'.

    I think you're correct on all these... It's most definitely "nova's", and "dream below."

    Y'all go hard? I go smart.
    How's it working every isle in the back, huh?

    i thought it was
    Y'all go hard, I go smart
    How is it working out for y'all in the back huh

    but now i'm not sure, does anyone else think it sounds like that?

    Well after listening closely to the lyrics today it dawned on me that Linkin Park has replaced the overuse of "lies" on this album with "promise" :awesome:

    Not that it's a bad thing.

    Okay corrections I did.

    Novice glow - Nova's glow
    Drain below - dream below

    SKaRR*oKi,
    It's definitely How's it working every isle in the back. I had what you originally thought at first but it's not that. Listen closer.


    Anyway, I believe the lyrics are 99% accurate now. Thanks everyone!!

    So rest your head
    It's time to sleep
    And dream of what's in store
    The body bends until it breaks

    Really love this lyric.

    In LITE it might be 'and love my scars' instead of 'and learn my scars' and maybe a brighter colour than blue for Chester as its a bit difficult to see with the black background...

    --------------------------------------------------------
    Corrections and small grammatical changes. I think we need to vote on these too because, no offense, it seems like a lot of LP fans mess up most on the rap lyrics/metaphors. Some things definitely sound similar but with rap you have to take in to account the previous lines and pop culture.


    ***LOST IN THE ECHO***
    "That I could never be held, back up, no, I hold myself."
    That I could never be held, back OR up, no, I hold myself.

    "There and back, yet my soul ain't sell./ Kept respect up the best, they failed."
    There and back, yet my soul ain't sell./ Kept respect up. The rest, they failed.

    "How's it working every isle in the back, huh?"
    How's it working out for ya'll in the back, huh?
    (I agree with the others that this is correct. It makes much more sense with the previous line. They go hard, he goes smart. Where has going hard got the people in the back? Mike is up front. And I just don't hear isle.)

    "I've seen that frustration, been across, aloft, I don't know."
    I've seen that frustration, been crossed, aloft, I don't know.
    (it could be "crossed and lost, I don't know" but I wasn't sure. But it's definitely crossed. I don't here the "a" on across.)


    "I can't be mapped, I can't be cloned./I can't #C-Flat, it ain't my tone."
    Nothing wrong with this line but WHY are people putting #C-Flat? It's C-FLAT! A flat is b, a sharp is #. So writing #C-Flat makes absolutely no sense. It should be C-flat or Cb.

    "I can't fall back, I came too far. Hold myself up and learn my scars."
    I also thought it was "love my scars" but I'm not 100% sure

    "I don't fold up and I don't bow. I don't row over, don't know how."
    I don't ROLL over, don't know how.

    ***IN MY REMAINS***
    All good

    ***BURN IT DOWN***
    All good

    ***LIES GREED MISERY***
    All good

    ***I'LL BE GONE***
    All good (best lyrics on the album imo)

    ***CASTLE OF GLASS***
    All good

    ***VICTIMIZED***

    "Because I won't wait for the debt to be repaid.
    The time has come for you..."
    (minor grammar stuff) "'Cause I won't wait..." "Time has come for you." There's definitely no "the".

    "You'll be waiting in the shadows there thinking they're hidden."
    I believe it's "you're hidden". It would also make sense because he said "You'll be waiting..."


    ***ROADS UNTRAVELED***
    All good

    ***SKIN TO BONE***
    All good

    ***UNTIL IT BREAKS***

    "With the hunger of a lion, the strength of a sun."
    I was born with the hunger of a lion...

    "It ain't over because the shark's on the left side, the snake's on the right."
    I know we want to correct Mike's grammar, but if we want correct lyrics we have to leave all of the 'causes in there lol. "It ain't over 'cause the sharks..." Also, no apostrophes.

    "Except for me, I do it like I got nothing to lose."
    I hear "And as for me, I do it..."

    "But sweaty little solider, I ain't standing next to you. "
    But steady little soldier...

    "And when the large bells ring"
    I think it's "And when the last bells ring".

    "Separate the weak from the obscure, lead your meek, I creep hard on imposters."
    What?lol He's biting, in a good way, Biggie. It's "Separate the weak from the obsolete, ya meek..."

    "will only get you slayed I ain't playing."
    I still maintain its "slain" because of the rhyme scheme. Slayed would be horrible grammar. Outside of slang (that joke slayed me), slayed is not really a word.

    "I get ill or I deliver while you quiver in your pants."
    I get iller, I deliver..."

    "Because time has torn the flesh away, the early morning sings no more..."
    Minor, again. Linkin Park just loves to use 'cause. lol

    ***TINFOIL***
    [No Lyrics: Instrumental interlude into Powerless]

    ***POWERLESS***
    All good

    I corrected the rap lyrics in Ryo's original post and Ryo ignored my edits and went over them cause all my edits are gone. It's not "sweaty little soldier" for example and never will be. Most of Justin V's corrections are right.

    However I think:
    "I've seen that frustration, been across, aloft, I don't know."

    is

    I've seen that frustration, been crossed, and lost and told no.

    That makes MUCH MORE SENSE. I thought I heard "been crossed and lost __" and could not figure it out. I'm going with "been crossed, and lost and told no." They way he said it thought "It can't be I don't know." *listens back* Yeah that's definitely it.

    I've got a handful of EDITS here that I'm positive about. Feel free to check me.

    [LOST IN THE ECHO]
    2nd Verse, 4th line:
    How's it working out for y’all in the back, huh

    3rd Verse, 2nd line:
    I don't fold up and I don't bow. I don't roll over, don't know how.

    [In My Remains]
    1st Verse, 3rd line:
    Broken down and waiting for the chance to feel alive.

    [I'll Be Gone]
    Choruses, 1st line:
    Remove the And from every chorus. It starts with "When"

    [Castle of Glass]
    Choruses, 1st line:
    ’Cause I'm only a crack in this "Castle of Glass", Hardly anything there for you to see

    [Victimized]
    1st Verse, 3rd line:
    Remove "The" from the beginning of the line. The line is "Time has come for you."

    2nd Verse, 5th line:
    You've be waiting in the shadows there thinking you're hidden.

    [Roads Untraveled]
    Weep not for roads untraveled, weep not for paths left lone.

    [Until It Breaks]
    1st Verse, 1st line:
    I was born with the hunger of a lion, the strength of a sun

    1st Mike Verse, last line:
    But learn to respect it ‘cause you surely can't stop it like that

    2nd Mike Verse, 4th line:
    I switch styles on a dime, quick witted

    2nd Mike Verse, 9th line:
    'll only get you slaying I ain't playing.

    That's everything. Let me know what you think.
