Linkin Park - Forgotten (Demo) Lyrics




From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why did I try?

From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why do I try?

From the thread to the needle
Middle to end
When skies cock back and shock that which couldn't defend
The rain then sends dripping an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes tightly shut
Looking through the rust and rotten dust
A spot of light floods the floor
Pours itself upon the world of pretend
Then the eyes ease open and it's dark again

From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten!
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why did I try?

From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why do I try?

In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

Moving all around
Screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
And as the wheels go 'round
The sunset creeps past
The street lamps, cars, chain-links and concrete
A window then grows and captures the eye
Cries out yellow light as it passes it by
A small black figure sits in front of a box
Inside a box of rock with the needles on top
Nothing stops in this land of the pain
The sane loose not knowing they where part of the game
But then the inside changes, the box stays the same in shame
Shovel up the pieces to the pain
You can try to hide yourself in this world of pretend
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again

From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why do I try?

From the top to the bottom!
Bottom to top I stop
At the core I've forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety!
So I'm bright in the sky
But the sun will escape me
So why do I try?

In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

Now I've got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling me that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
(Are you afraid I'll meet you?)
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
(Afraid I'll meet you)
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
(Are you afraid I'll meet you?)
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

Now I've got you caught in the act
(Afraid I'll meet you)
You better step back
Telling you that I'm seeing right through you

In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

In a minute you'll find me
Eyes burn me up
You say you'll never forget me
But the lies have piled up

    Also known as Rhinestone

  2. phong vu

    Mike reused part of the lyrics for frgt/10 as well as many other demos

  3. Schmidty

    The ending of this demo is better than the final version in my opinion

  4. Andy Yoel Chuco H.

  5. Amanze D Mere aka Nej

  7. Shinobi Xero

    At the very End that sounds like Mark

    Schmidty

    Shinobi Xero It may sound like him, but it's not Mark.

    Егор Цыба

    It's Hybrid Theory. Mark leave, when they called Xero in 1997. Hybrid Theory is Linkin Park from 1997 - 2000. They maded a self-titled album in 1999 with 4 songs:
    1. One Step Closer
    2. *Rhinestone*
    3. My December
    4. Crawling
    *In bald is this song*

  8. insert name here Please

    I love the drums in the verses better here! And maybe a few bits of the changed lyrics. But the ending in the final version is much stronger.

  9. Chazzie

    who is singing from the top to the bottom, Mark?

    Chazzie

    +Lastrevio I'm sure that's not Chester

    insert name here Please

    100% Chester, only he can scream like that

    Schmidty

    Chester sings the verse "in a minute you'll find me"

    Schmidty

    Mark isn't even in this song. He had already left the band.

    Егор Цыба

    Rhinestone is song from self-titled Hybrid Theory's album. Was recorded in March 1999. Second of fourth songs in album. The demo of Rhinestone was recorded in 1992, when they was called Xero and in vocals was only Mike. In this final version Chester is also singing with Mike (you can hear his agressive voice in part "Now you caught me act"). In 2002 was maded remix to this song (a.k.a. "Forgotten").
