Crawling-Linkin Park

I've been a Linkin Park fan for years now. I think I started listening when I was thirteen, and I haven't stopped since. It's one of those bands that you don't grow out of, 'cause their music is always appealing.

I personally prefer the songs from their earlier albums, Hybrid Theory, and Meteora. Minutes To Midnight was also a good album, but it didn't give me that great LP vibe.

Anyway, the song I chose today is a favorite of Hybrid Theory, Crawling.
The song is much more melodic than the other songs on this album, but still has Chester's strong vocals, and Mike's emcee.
The lyrics are great too, and have a lot of meaning, and you can take that meaning in a lot of different ways. That's another thing I love about LP, their lyrics. They're always strong, even when they're telling you about how broken they are inside. They always give me some form of courage to go on, take what ever I'm given, and live life, don't let stuff consume me!

Linkin Park is a GREAT band, for many, many reasons (not just 'cause Chester's from Phoenix! Lol), and if you haven't, I suggest you check out all of their stuff. Especially the older albums.

Here you go.

Crawling-Linkin Park

Crawling in my skin
Consuming all I feel
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
This lack of self control I fear is never-ending
Controlling/I can't seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
[Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced
It's just too much pressure to take]
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can' seem...
