I just got a new CD that hit me a lot deeper than I would have expected when I bought it. A lot of the lyrics resonated with me, and I wanted to share them with you. I haven't bought a new CD in months. I had heard a couple of the songs on the radio, and it was the music, not the lyrics that got my attention. They managed to balance angry screaming and pounding guitars with beautiful singing and exquisite melodies. I have needed some music with teeth, in order to appease the anger building inside, but I can't only listen to cacophonous noise. And listening to relaxing music will only serve to push these feeling back below the surface again. This band managed to do both.
So I bought it.
The band is Linkin Park, and it can be found on the alternative and hard rock radio stations. I'll post the lyrics in separate posts, so anyone that wants to comment may do so with the individual songs.
We're in this together.
