    I think the first 2 lines are:

    I didn't think that I had a debt to pay
    'Til it came to take what I had left away

    I personally think the lyrics are very good but the delivery of them is excellent in my opinion (Mike especially and the way Chester alternates in the chorus). I think that along with the music really make the song. It's one of my favorite LP songs to date and if the new album lives up to this then I will be very pleased. Granted the lyrics are not as good as these:

    "There's a place so dark, you can't see the end
    Skies cock back and shock that which can't defend
    The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
    Forcefully, the power of suggestion
    Then with the eyes shut, looking through the rust
    And rot and dust, a spot of light floods the floor
    And pours over the rusted world of pretend
    And the eyes ease open and it's dark again

    From the top to the bottom
    Bottom to top I stop
    At the core, I've forgotten
    In the middle of my thoughts
    Taken far from my safety
    The picture's there
    The memory won't escape me
    But why should I care?

    In the memory, you'll find me
    Eyes burning up
    The darkness holding me tightly
    Until the sun rises up

    Moving all around, screaming of the ups and downs
    Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
    The wheels go 'round and the sunset creeps
    Behind street lamps chainlink and concrete
    A little piece of paper with a picture drawn
    Floats on down the street 'til the wind is gone
    The memory now is like the picture was then
    When the paper's crumpled up, it can't be perfect again"

    but then again these are some of the best lyrics I've heard :)

    Anyways, props to Linkin Park for creating an awesome song and mad props to everyone who deciphered these lyrics although I believe the part in the chorus when Chester sings very fast is near indecipherable. I think we will have to wait for the lyric booklet in the CD for that one. Haha. Anyways, great job guys.

    Well, to be quite honest, he rapped pretty well during the Xero and Hybrid Theory days.

    I've always wondered why Mike insists he's matured lyrically, when his finest stuff, in my opinion, was before Hybrid Theory was released.

    i think chester's lyrics and the way he puts them out has really changed. in the transcription, though, here are my concerns:

    01. at the start of the first verse, there's some dispute as to whether it says "i didn't think that i had [a] debt to pay" or something else;
    02. in the next line, there's disagreement about whether it says "until [they] came to take what i had left away" or something else'
    03. there's a part in the first verse where you suppose it says "like these simple thought" - although i can't put in anything better, i doubt those words are correct ...
    04. in the chorus, there's a line that you suppose says "you hide behind your ..." - i don't know if he actually says "your" 'cause i can't hear it ...

    EDIT: okay, regarding the third thing i said, part of it is probably actually correct; i hear "like ... simple thoughts" and there's something in the middle.

    ... the rest of it sounds good and accurate and all; keep in mind that the recording is of relatively low quality and all errors can therefore be excused. ;)

    In the bridge I can barely make it out but my best stab at the first part would be:

    You're faking, you're mistaken
    And continue to the bottom of your soul

    Instead of:

    You're faking, you're mistaken
    If you think I'm taking what's pouring out your soul

    But yeh...that's the harderst part to hear...I guess someone will have to ask Chaz. Haha.

    "Like the pure thoughts you stole, it's going to swallow you whole"

    Sounds like he says, "Like the pure heart you swallow, 'til you swallowed it whole" instead.

    Is it okay if i post up what i might think the lyrics are to the song?

    Um okay this is what i came up with while listening to it, i dont know if its right or not but i tried Chesters part was kinda hard but thats the closest i got to it


    Qwerty - Linkin Park


    This is a new song

    Whhhaaatttt sup!

    Yeah

    You feel That?!

    I didnt think that i had a debt to pay
    til they came to take what i had left away
    you said you would put me to the test today
    but i remember you saying that yesterday
    there was a time when your mind wasnt outta control
    every memory and confession pouring out of your soul
    like a pill you couldnt swallow so it swallowed you whole
    another lie hard to follow it followed you home
    and like that
    (broken down,a victim of your crime)
    so why you so outta control
    every memory and confession pouring out of your soul
    and like that
    (Broken down, a victim of your)


    Lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you've crossed the line
    wrapped up inside your
    lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    your lost inside that cold disguise
    behind your lies


    I dont know what i thought i might say
    seems like we would never talk the right way
    every other minute i fought for my place
    and drop without a pay i thought you might say
    so im guessing that you probably know
    when you insides hollow then you oughta be cold
    like a pill hard to swallow so it swallowed you whole
    another lie hard to follow it followed you home
    and like that
    (Broken down, a victim of your)



    Lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you've crossed the line
    wrapped up inside your
    lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    your lost inside that cold disguise
    behind your lies


    Your faken your mistaken
    if you think that you can claim another soul
    forsaken
    what we drained way
    all the lies that wanna power up your soul
    broken down a victim of your
    faken your mistaken
    if your think that you can claim another soul
    broken down a victim of your lies


    Lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you hide behind
    wrapped up inside your

    Lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    you dont know why
    you've crossed the line
    wrapped up inside your
    lies
    you hide behind
    lies
    your lost inside that cold disguise
    behind your lies
