[music] Linkin Park - Easier To Run [Dec. 31st, 2004|09:53 am]
The Love Bug
[Current Music |Linkin Park - Easier To Run]

Caroline and I first got into Linkin Park when we saw the video for "Faint" on Kerrang... Caroline then bought me "Reanimation" on CD for my birthday, and I went out and bought "Meteora" and "Hybrid Theory" shortly after. Whilst I appreciate that LP is not to everyone's taste, as the combination of Rap and Metal doesn't appeal to most, I have to say that the talent between them is just phenomenal.

I wanted to post the lyrics to "Easier To Run" as I think they are just brilliant. Have a look at amazon.com's Meteora page for a sample of this (and all other tracks) from the Meteora CD.

Linkin Park - Easier To Run

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone


Something has been taken from deep inside of me
The secret I've kept locked away no one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show they never go away
Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they've played

If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave


It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone


Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn't have
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
And never moving forward so there'd never be a past

If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave


[Bridge]
Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel misplaced
It's so much simpler than change

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone


It's easier to run
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made

It's easier to go
If I could change I would take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

I bought my nephew a Linkin Park DVD a couple of years back. It was very much the choice of teenage boys. Not sure if it is these days or not :)

I think, for myself, I've noticed that there's a lot more to Linkin Park that meets the eye. Most of the songs are based on the real-life experiences of the two front-men, one of which suffered abuse when he was younger.

My guess would be that most Linkin Park 'fans' wouldn't have taken the time to look in to the history of the group, or actually sit down and listen to what the songs mean.

Likewise... liking Linkin Park seems to carry the same weight as liking New Kids on the Block when they were around. Unfortunately, I liked them too!

Have you heard the 'Reanimation' version of 'With You' (for some reason entitled 'Wth>You ')? I actually prefer that to the original :o)

'Crawling' (or 'Krwlng' on Reanimation) and 'Breaking The Habit' are my other main favourites.

Yeah I know the with you remix, its ok, I like it because someone made an anime music video to it, and it suited so well. I still prefer the original though. :)

I ignored the hype or whatever else it was, and really like their first album and their single on the Matrix Reloaded soundtrack.
