Will you be able to listen to LP the same way? The lyrics are haunting now.

    I was molested for years as a child also, with no help, experienced hurting on a deep mental level I could never pin point or fix. Depression, anxiety, panic disorder, fibro etc. Maybe thats why I was drawn to this band in the first place. I felt Chesters pain. His death makes me want to give up sometimes but also I know he'd want us to be strong. I'm gonna try to be strong. I've seen some people saying horrible stuff online, and I don't care what people say this man was STRONG and most of them will never understand the unrelenting torment of mental illness, childhood traumas, etc have over a person.

    RIP Chester.

    What is it about BIO we can't listen to it?
    I found LOATR and Shadow of the Day to be haunting, like he knew he wouldn't be here for a long time,

    I'm so sorry for your past experiences and how they affected you later in life. I'm comforted knowing Chester was able to give you a sense of peace and understanding about life through his music. We have a lot of very loving and compassionate people here on LPA - please check the Chester Support Thread in the Chester Bennington Sub Forum. We have plenty of staff and even just regular members helping people to deal with their grief as well as mental issues and past trauma. Don't give up please.

    Songs that changed for me:

    - Bleed It Out (noose line, I skip it every time now)
    - Roads Untraveled ("and if you need a friend, there's a seat here alongside me")
    - Powerless (I still think this is one of Chester's greatest performances)
    - Leave Out All The Rest ("help me leave behind some reasons to be missed")
    - Shadow of the Day ("sometimes goodbye's the only way")
    - In Pieces
    - I'll Be Gone
    - Breaking The Habit (the entire thing)
    - Given Up
    - Nobody Can Save Me (the title alone is enough, jesus)

    So I wrote a tribute for Chester for a local lifestyle website I write for. It's not out yet (I'll post it here soon), but here's an excerpt from it that I wrote especially which song hit me the most:

    From the moment I heard Papercut...my entire adulthood was spent listening to LP.

    My oldest son was born in 2000 and has been screaming to LP since the wee age of 3 (no joke). His favorite song...The Catalyst, my ringtone for him still. Favorite album...Meteora. He absolutely loves the vibe of that album. He is crushed. Heartbroken over this. He was due to see them live for the first time in Philly next week. An absolute dream of his. He now plans to spend the day with friends, chillin to LP and riding dirt bikes.

    As for me, any emotion I struggled with, LP has been there every step of the way. Given Up is my go to f*ck the world song...his screams still haunt me. I dedicated Leave Out All The Rest to both my boys. One Step Closer, In The End, Final Masquerade and Numb got me through my separation and divorce.

    I have been designing a lyrical tattoo for the last 4 months. Again, for my boys. They are both growing up, teenagers. My oldest will be graduating next year, and knowing they will be moving on as adults...college, careers, relationships/marriage...the bond we have now, will eventually be broken. One of the best lyrics is Burning In The Skies "...in the end we were made to be apart, in separate chambers of the human heart." it kinda has new meaning now...

    It looks like he left "goodbye" notes all over their discography (BTH, LOATR, Shadow of the Day, NCSM) and it's why some of them are hard for
    me to listen to. BIO is too energetic and it reminds me of the last concert as it was the last song :(

    I did :( It reminded me of LOATR and Shadow of the Day. Pointless question and thought now but he seemed he knew he wouldn't be here for long :(

    Until it's Gone is one that's changed for me. It seems to be so much more poignant and deep now.

    The Heavy video is also hard to watch, especially the scenes where he's fighting himself.

    I feel like that song would have changed for me as well but I don't like it so I don't listen to it.

    I can see why the lyrics would be more haunting though

    Add Ph5ng Me Aw*y to the list

    "Reverse psychology is failing miserably
    It's so hard to be left all alone
    Telling you is the only chance for me
    There is nothing left but to turn and face you
    When I look into your eyes there's nothing there to see
    Nothing but my own mistakes staring back at me"

    Now I realize that line isn't sung by Chester but it still brings the feels.

    Also add In The End to the list

    I forgot how fuckng dark Dead By Sunrise lyrics are, the band name itself too, ugh.

    "Inside of Me"

    What is it that I'm running from?
    My head is like a loading gun,
    Every thought is trapped inside this web I've spun

    What the hell is wrong with me?
    This isn't who I'm suppose to be

    I feel all alone everyday,
    And just so faraway,
    I know something's got to change,
    Inside of me
