Lyrics by Linkin Park. Used without permission, hope no one minds.

Crawling

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming/confusing
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 and I'm convinced
that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting/reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem…

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced
that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real
Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing … Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming/ (Confusing what is real)
This lack of self-control I fear is never-ending
Controlling/ (Confusing what is real)

Somehow I knew that this would be the song to get the first response. It certainly resonated with me the most.

The whole album is so cathartic; I recommend picking it up. Many of the songs seem to be directed at an ex-girlfriend, but I can sense the deeper issues of whoever wrote the songs. I'm wondering if he was abused also. It really wouldn't surprise me.

Another album I bought on the same day was System of a Down "Toxicity". I'll post a few lyrics for that as well. Again, with balance between gorgeous musicality, and cathartic screaming.

We're in this together.

This song was the first one I thought of when I first saw this music board--I'm glad somebody beat me to it, though, cuz I'm all lazy about finding lyrics and typing them out, etc.

One of the lead singers of the band, I think his name is Chester, has actually been pretty open about being a survivor of sexual abuse in childhood, so I definitely think that's one of the things I pick up on in their music, especially in this song and in "papercut."
