    I always wondered. Who could it be? A girl? A parent? A friend? Help me out please.

    All The Best,

    Well which song? :rolleyes:

    Numb towards anyone's parents. Dont Stay seems like a boy/girl friend. And Papercut really isnt directed towards anyone.

    I'm not sure how directed their songs really are -- I know that they try to make their lyrics universal so that everybody can relate to them on some level so I think that a lot of the songs are more about the situations than the people involved in them.

    They're usually either singing about their emotions, or when they address someone as "you" it could be an ex-girlfriend who brought them pain, their parents who tried to force them to do things they never wanted to do, etc. each song is based differently on a subject.

    You is You... Fear LP :chemist: .

    lol when I listen to a song I think about the lyrics, the situation, and I try to put a face I know on the "You". So you build your own story :D . Music is fun for this (when the lyrics mean something).

    well.. i think the lyrics arent completely directed to anyone.. perhaps they were from past experiences that the band went thru or it cud just be an empathy type of thing.. like to let ppl noe that they're not alone.. and blah.. heh.. but i think its soooooo mad wen u can relate to the song.. play out all the situations in ur mind.. and blah.. hmm.. its hard to type and talk on the fone at the same time.. anywho.. i lurve linkin park

    Thanks. I knew "Numb" was 100% directed at parents and stuff. But lot's of the songs aren't directed to anybody I guess. They are trying to match our situations. Cool B)

    Nobody and at the same time - everybody. Now go and figure that out. Maybe it'll give you something to do other than pointless threads. Not that I'm singling you out, but all your posts are questions that you could piece together with a few minutes of thought...

    I'm 'chillin' alright. I'm allowed my opinion right? I know that maybe I didnt state it in the greatest manner, and for that I'm sorry. But I'm a very opinionated person
