    I've got a lot of questions about lyrics of LP, Grey Daze, Xero songs and other related with them.
    Let's begin with this one:
    There are different versions of lyrics for Fuse by Xero.

    After:
    Try to see the light
    Can you see it?
    I’ll be here
    (Tech broke italic syllabic attacks)
    Try to see the light
    Can you see it?
    I’ll be here
    (You want these emcees with lyrical back smacks?)

    Go ahead
    Suit yourself

    {I doubt about these words in these two lines. I can't exactly hear, what's written on your website}

    Why wait?
    I should’ve just told myself
    {This also sound different for me. Other web site of lyrics gives such a variant - I didn't look down myself. But it's also something wrong.}


    In the beginning -
    It burns, fitfully, sputteringly to it's end
    or
    it burns—fitfully—spiraling to it's end
    First variant seems to be more correct, don't you think so?

    Hard to say really what the lyrics to 3 of the 4 Xero tracks are, since the lyrics were never printed on the cassette or anything. The "go ahead, suit yourself" line is kinda hard to hear, it goes with the crunchy guitar part right before Mark screams.

    The lyrics to Mike's verses of Reading My Eyes are printed on the insert of the cassette tape though, and they read as follows (There's actually a couple small misprints that I corrected):

    The microphone molester
    Machete undresser
    Stupid dope fresh type shit ressurecter
    Top gun miramar best of the bester
    The leave an emcee peace-in-rester
    The skill tester, the flex the gunner
    The make funner, the adversary make runner
    The make summer cold with rhymes I spit
    And kick gift to lifted delinquent wit
    I be the prophet
    My hand - top it
    Stop it
    Fly like rocket when I rock it
    Lock it down with this perverse verse
    Every fucking curse a burst of hurt
    Move crowds - physical fitness rhymes
    Cokeheads couldn't do my lines
    I'm decorated like Christmas pines;
    My battalion rocks
    Emcess become silhouettes of chalk

    Hit the dirt because the words I spit
    Will do more than just rip your shirt
    I'll bitch slap your soul;
    Contact the track control
    You're coming at me, you can't hack it though
    So ridiculous
    Watching my crew get sick with this
    Wickedness
    Pitching this
    Lyrical viciousness to crews
    And cliques made of men and mistresses
    This is my life
    The twilight in the fight night
    And trying to see nothing but the highlights
    When I write, these eyes on horizons
    Die for my song
    Cry rhymes in Krylon
    Fire on
    Move men telekinetically
    Esoterically beat-speaking with clarity
    Feel my vereties, heroism of heresy
    And sever every emcee I see with severity

    It doesn't give lyrics for the rest of the song, but Mike's 2 verses make up most of it anyway.

    No, because those are songs that were made by one member of the band before Linkin Park (Hybrid Theory/Xero) was even formed, and thus does not belong.

    Ok. I understand. But Xero is not a full Linkin Park, why would you add their lyrics?

    1) And one lyrics:
    On your web site -

    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

    Keep it locked up inside
    Keep it locked up inside
    Keep it locked up inside
    Keep it locked up inside


    In mine song -

    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace
    Breaking a part of my heart to find release
    Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace

    Keep my distance
    Keep my distance
    Keep my distance
    Keep my distance

    Is my version wrong, or your lyrics are wrong? By the way on the linkinpark.com - there is mine version of this part.

    2) Also track length is mine 4:30, on the linkinpark.com - 4:08 and your's - 3:10

    3) High Voltage:
    Invented the mic , NOT the mid


    4) Cure For The Itch lyrics aren't full.
    There are some phrases I can' understand
    Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight
    I'd like to introduce
    Mr. Hahn

    "Folks ^%$^%&^%( Mr.Hahn
    And now for the lesson ^%($&
    Let's begin
    Alright now"

    Wasn't that fun?
    Let's try something else

    5) Runaway lyrics are strange

    Paper-bags and angry voices under a sky of gray
    This constant wave of tension won't seem to go away
    All my talk of taking action
    These words were never true

    must be

    Paper-bags and angry voices under a sky of dust
    Another wave of tension has more than filled me up
    All my talk of taking action
    These words were never true

    I wanna run away
    Never say good-bye
    I wanna know the truth
    Instead of wondering why
    I wanna know the answers
    No more lies
    I wanna shut the door
    Instead of wondering why

    must be last line

    And open up my mind

    Do you at least have lyrics of SDAHF songs? 'Cause those, that I have in some places differ from the real song's lyrics, that I have.

    Oh, great Thanks to you. And how about other my questions?
    By the way, I listened to all of the Lp tracks and a lot of your lyrics have mistakes. Sometimes even a whole rows are missing. Sometimes chorus is wrong (in few songs)

    What? Xero had 5 of 6 current Linkin Park bandmembers and Chester was a part of the band when they were called Xero before they changed their name to Hybrid Theory and released their first material with him under that name.

    Grey Daze/Sean Dowdell and Friends is 1/6th of what became Linkin Park, and the material was made before Xero was formed and thus holds no real semblance to the current band. It's like putting The Snax lyrics up.

    Fort Minor, on the other hand, may also be 1/6th of Linkin Park, but that side-project was formed as Linkin Park were (and still are) ongoing and thus has a reason to be on the site.

    Thanks for your help with those lyrics. And please refrain from double posting.

    We're already aware we have a lot of typos.

    They'll be addressed when we get the time to fix them.

    That's just Jay-Z speaking. It's not part of the song.

    Alright, but it's in the song, so if you know what is he speaking - print these words, please.

    Also in red to black, after the last
    He's dying to get away
    Let the pain of yesterday
    Go slipping through the cracks
    Hiding himself away
    Watching all the memories fade away
    From red to black

    I can hear something like - Living in a lie, or what, and beggining of next song.. time's up or something.....

    End of Where'd You Go is Brad and Jay-Z talking:

    Brad:
    When you made me that initial batch of songs, I was like, that's the shit right there.

    Jay-Z:
    Holla! *laughs*

    The end of Red to Black is just someone scratching over Mike saying "Time's Up" from the start of The Battle.
