Burn It Down
Linkin Park Lyrics


The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find
And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

The colors conflicted
As the flames, climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down
And you were there at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

You told me yes
You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played soldier, you played king
And struck me down, when I kissed that ring
You lost that right, to hold that crown
I built you up, but you let me down
So when you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up
To break it back down
We're building it up
To burn it down
We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames
As your blazes burn

We can't wait
To burn it to the ground

The cycle repeated
As explosions broke in the sky
All that I needed
Was the one thing I couldn't find

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up to break it back down
We're building it up to burn it down
We can't wait to burn it to the ground


The colors conflicted
As the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this
But couldn't stop from tearing it down

And you were there at the turn
Caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know

We're building it up to break it back down
We're building it up to burn it down
We can't wait to burn it to the ground

You told me yes, you held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played soldier, you played king
And struck me down when I kissed that ring

You lost that right to hold that crown
I built you up but you let me down
So when you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames as your blazes burn

And you were there, at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We're building it up to break it back down
We're building it up to burn it down
We can't wait to burn it to the ground

When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames as your blazes burn
We can't wait to burn it to the ground
When you fall, I'll take my turn
And fan the flames as your blazes burn
We can't wait to burn it to the ground

Have Fun!

I truly feel guilty. During all these years, I enjoyed their music, his
lyrics, his voice, without knowing his was still suffering from severe
depression. I thought he was talking about his past only and, especially
when they took the path Minutes to Midnight/A Thousand Suns, I thought
he had left these dark days behind him. I thought that he was making
this music for us, I would never have imagined it was a scream for help.
Now, their songs make much more sense in a way. And, as I thought I was
a huge fan, I never understood that. Even worst for the last album.
That was a clear way to say goodbye to everyone, he was seriously
thinking about suicide way before. Chris' death was what litteraly
pushed him to do it, and he had probably planned it from a while. It's
so sad, I can't even cry because my parents wouldn't understand why I
make such a big deal about a "celebrity death". But he's not a celebrity
for me. He was like a dear friend, and he still is. Linkin Park got me
into music like NO other group did. Chester is the one that got me into
loving singing, always wondering how amazing the human voice can be.
Even though I never experienced depression, I was feeling their songs so
much, his voice was so powerful and expressive, because he was actually
suffering ... I really wished transforming that suffering into art
would have helped him. Unfortunately, not enough to save his life and
fight his demons ... I still don't believe it, part of me don't want to
and is just denying it inside of me. I will write a song for you
Chester. I feel extremely bad and I'm a stranger to you, I can't even
imagine what the band, the family and friends are going through right
now. Chester, you left us empty. But please, understand that unlike what
you might have thought, in the end, it DID matter. Because, the
wonderful human being you were made a lot of people go through their
depression, feel better, discover the power of music, thanks to you and
to Linkin Park. You have lost your battle, but you allowed many many
more to WIN theirs. So yes, it DID matter. I missed my last chance to
see LP on live, in Paris during the download festival, and I feel very
sorry about that. The day before your death, I was singing along with
you and Mike during your entire concert at Red Square Moscow, old one
but still my favorite. I was having a lot of fun and enjoyed every
minute of it, like if I was there. Thank you, thank you so much for
sharing that amazing voice and human being you were with us. I haven't
cried yet, I know it will eventually come by the time I truly realize
what happened.
"When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done, help me live
behind some reasons to be missed" "Don't resent me, and when you're
feeling empty, keep me in your memory, leave out all the rest, leave out
all the rest"
You will deeply be missed. RIP.

@dandark 515 secondo me non lo voleva fare, gli sarà venuta una crisi e l'ha fatto in un momento di incoscienza, so come funziona la depressione
