One Step Closer
Linkin Park Lyrics


I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
But you'll find that out anyway
Just like before

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again
Just like before

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to, break

Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Shut up when I'm talking to you
Shut up, shut up, shut up
Shut up, I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to, break

I always listen this song. Right before my brother and I sing this. This is for you CB!

I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear, the less you say
You'll find that out anyway

[Pre-Chorus: Chester Bennington]
Just like before

[Chorus: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

[Verse 2: Chester Bennington]
I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again

[Pre-Chorus: Chester Bennington]
Just like before

[Chorus: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to
Break!

[Bridge: Chester Bennington]
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up!
Shut up!
Shut up!
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up!
Shut up!
Shut up!
Shut up!
I'm about to break!

[Chorus: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to
Break

This man fought his hardest for over a decade ladies and gentlemen!
And almost every song was a hint of where his mind was. His calls for help to his fans and everyone else in his life.
The titles "Invisible" and "Nobody's Listening" make me cry just reading them :'( It was how he felt.

Man I wish i knew him in person. Idk what I could have done, but I would have tried :( Rest in peace Chester i'm sorry no one figured this out in time. I'm so sorry no one was there.

The aesthetic of 1999-2003 was so strong and peculiar. Linkin Park, Korn, The Matrix. Those years looked and felt like a truly unique moment in time.

It's insane how as teenagers we appreciated the music. As adults we appreciate the meaning. Wild

Love this band I’m glad I listen to them in my high school and college years

Badass song. LP helped me get through my darkest days, when Chester lost his battle on my birthday in 2017 I spiraled, if that’s how it ends for people suffering it gave me less hope for my own struggles. It’s 2022 and I’m just now able to listen to them again, it’s been to painful to process but I’m doing the work

mathprodigy

it was kind of the same for me, when it happened my hands were shaking and I cried for days. I couldn't listen to them for awhile bc, yea there was a spirit there that just wasn't there anymore without Chester being here. only recently I started listening again back to everything I listened before. I literally used to sing to them in the car all the time until his death, now I really don't so much. There will never be another Chester Bennington, nor another Linkin Park.
