Linkin Park - Part Of Me Lyrics




[Mike Shinoda:]
Part of me won't go away
Every day reminded how much I hate it
Weighted against the consequences
Can't live without it so it's senseless
Wanna cut it out of my soul
And just live with a gaping hole
Take control of my life
And wash out all the burnt taste
I made the problems in the first place
Hang my head low 'cause it's part of me
Ya hardly see right next to the heart of me
Hurting me, the wounds soon scar
New cuts cover where the old ones are
And now I'm sick of this
I can't stand the sandpaper thoughts that grate on my sanity
I rather not even be than the man that's staring in the mirror through me

[4x]
Cut myself free willingly
Stop just what's killing me

[Chester Bennington:]
I feel it every day
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

[Mike Shinoda:]
Freedom can be frightening if you've never felt it
Once it's been dealt with you feel like you've been touched by something angelic
And then melted down into a pool of peace
Cease to be the animal you used to be
Remove the broken parts you know were wrong
And feel the calm when the problem's all gone
And then you start to see
Another piece of yourself that you can't let be
Memories of the last fight to free yourself
Take it to the depths of the bottom of the well
And now you know that you can choose to lose
The part in your heart where your insides bruised
You can live if you're willing to
Put a stop to just what's killing you

[4x]
Cut myself free willingly
Stop just what's killing me

[Chester Bennington:]
I feel it every day
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

[2x]
Alive in me
Inside of me
A part turns grey
And rots away silently

This part of me won't go away
Part of me won't go away

[2x]
Everywhere I look around
I see how everything ought to be
Every time I see myself
I see there's always something wrong with me

[2x]
I feel it every day
I feel I made my way
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

[2x]
I feel it swell up inside, swell up inside
Swallowing me

    Low-key Emo

    Ikr 👌

  26. hans ignacio

    HYbrid ThEory IS the Best.

  27. Jason Lor

    It's a combination of Ominous...

  28. BLINGY MAN

    It reminds Metallica to me (Chester singing)

  29. hans ignacio

    rip chester

  30. Егор Цыба

    Fun fact: in demo Chester screaming part "Cut myself free"

    Ondra Spendlik

    Actually, this is first known version of this song, released on Hybrid Theory EP. The two versions where Chester screams those parts are later versions of the song, demos that were recorded for Hybrid Theory but didn't make the album

    Spartan War118

    Well that makes sense why people think the demo version is better than this version

    Ondra Spendlik

    I like all 3 versions, there's something about all of them. In this one, the chorus is nicely built up by Mike rapping each pre chorus line louder than the previous one, and there is an instrumental variation in one of the pre choruses, so while first chorus is heavily built up, second one explodes after short instrumental break. In the other two versions, both pre choruses are the same, so both choruses are big noise explosions. Chester's screams nicely build up tension and slow down the song before those loud choruses. All 3 versions are great in this sense

    PROJECT: Joza100

    Where can i find the other versions?

  31. SaiyanStreamz

    And this is by far one of their worst songs. It's gross.

    yatharth gupta

    SaiyanSoul and what make you think so

    jonathon grabs 1417

    SaiyanSoul fuck off

    Josue the ascended one.

    SolitarySaiyan rot in hell you worthless pile of dog shit and stick a gun up your throat and end yourself already

    Max C

    SaiyanStreamz it’s a demo lol

  32. SaiyanStreamz

    And now he's dead. Good job, with that killing yourself you did, Chester. No pity for suicide.

    Josue the ascended one.

    SaiyanSoul Fuck you you piece of shit, you don't know what he had been feeling or what he had gone through in his life. Shut the fuck up.

    Amanda Leon

    SolitarySaiyan You’re irrelevant, fuck off

  33. M00NIMA

    Chester 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜

  34. Coffee

    There’s some things that brings back memories but these aren’t memories of things that happened they are just sense memories... music is weird like that

  35. Antonia

    I‘m addicted to this song... 😊

  36. NPYM TV

    I love Mike's rap in this song

    Evan Urena

    Mike's rap just touches your heart in this song and it's easily one of his best in my opinion. His such a talented rapper.

    Keanu Reeves

    @Evan Urena Talented, yet underrated.

  37. VarietyMusicLover

    0:42 loving that layne staley vibe in the background

    Evan Urena

    When you think about it, Chester is like the Layne Staley of our time.

    VarietyMusicLover

    i agree i can't help but think of a layne vibe with this song

    Evan Urena

    Yep, it's got the perfect combination of hard rock grunge and underground hip-hop, which is what I love about Linkin Park. The way they are just able to combine rock and hip-hop so perfectly is always so captivating in a unique manner.

  38. Handsome Squidward

    “Put a stop to just what’s killing you” stop doing certain habits or addictions that’s killing you, break free from it’s chain, i love that verse.

    Katy w

    Handsome Squidward it can be difficult, because sometimes you're being destroyed by yourself, even if you don't want to do it

    Handsome Squidward

    Katy w yeah I️ feel you, but the lyrics are just a good reminder to help boost someone to break, mike says “put a stop” I feel like he says it in terms like dude I️ just need to stop, no more this and that it’s time I just stop, and also the way he says it aggressively adds to that anger that he just wants to stop whats killing him, but yeah I️ understand it is very hard to break from whatever it is.

    Katy w

    Handsome Squidward well yeah, and I love the verse because of that, too

    Lucas Souza

    "Once it's been dealt with you
    Feel like you've been touch by something angelic".

  39. zamoraksk1ll

    Love this song... heard this one when i was turning into a linkin park fan years ago... it was one of the first few songs i heard

    RIP Chester. The world is so much darker without you :\

  40. Li Xuan Lai

    Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester Rip Chester

  41. Dražen Opačak

    I guess this is like the only LP song where Demo is better than original, am I the only one who thinks that? I just like Chester screaming more than this light version and I like light songs more than the hard ones, but in this case I guess the other one is more appropriate, just my opinion tho, Rest in Peace Legend <3

  42. Abhinav Velidi

    Chester is not the vocalist in this song

    coffee and freedom

    Abhinav Velidi yes he is.

    Willie Ellis

    Actually he is. Mark never made it to this demo.

    Abhinav Velidi

    Oh it didn't sound like him to me .. but maybe I'm wrong

    alex Reséndiz

    Wrong idiot! This song sing chester

  43. coffee and freedom

    Anyone knows where can I find more of this kind of rap?

    lpf173

    Can't think of a username Try their song qwerty. It's different, like all their music, but it's one of my favorites.

  44. Konstantinos Shinoda

    I feel it swell up inside, swallowing me, RIP Chester

  45. Lauren Ort

    I've come to realize a part of me will feel it every day... RIP angel.

  46. Majin Wamu

    Hm, this isn't the entire song. The original song is over 10 minutes long.

    Chris

    Majin Wamu its 13 minutes with like 8 minutes of silence and static between this and a 2 minute or so instrumental.

    Dave the Assassin

    Yeah, on the EP it's 12.43. But from around 4.04 to around 9.54 it's just guitar-esque static sounds (that you can briefly hear in the intro if you listen close enough).

  47. Kaleigh Sullivan

    13 years old. Dancing angrily to this while locked in my room.

    Willie Ellis

    Kaleigh Sullivan same...

    othman tayach

    @Valentino Racuk I had listened to before it a such great song

    Kid_evil#666 Motherfucker

    othman tayach and one

    The Nova

    I think he sang very loudly on One Step Closer

    Lorenzo Graziosi

    you should listen to No roads left then, Mike sings very high

  61. 0thereaper0

    the ending of this part of the song is so good

  62. W K Cyrokin

    Somehow I'd forgotten I'd listened to this one. Now I'm not sure how I forgot it because now that I'm listening to it, it's so familiar and I recall the lyrics. o.o

  63. Francy Cabrini

    li ke!!!!

  64. Don't Lose Your Edge

    Is it me or everyone who think the song sounds like the Xero demo songs?

    Andreiux

    Lloyd Flame yes

  65. samurai senpai

  66. Nokka Mutka

    Damn. The Grey Daze Vibe here is so powerful and harmonic.

    GodEater Mythic

    Nokka Mutka I love Grey Daze! My favorite song is Morei Sky from the first album

  67. lucas Chagas

    I never heard it awesoe

  68. Brandan Maza

    I think they should make an album of unreleased demos

    BalianTheMighty

    Actually, you can buy all of the previous years ones from the LP Underground store.

    https://linkinpark.com/lpu/music

    M.A. Zaki

    They always did, the albums are calld Linkin Park Underground (Roman numerical number) Or just Underground.

    Keanu Reeves

    The underground songs should've made it to Hybrid Theory.

    Zak Thomas

    This song should have been approved for one of their main albums. One of their best IMO

  69. Bored Jeff02

    Well this ended up being Figure .09

    samurai senpai

    Bored Jeff02 this is better.

    Andreiux

    no, this isn't a demo this is the very first album that they released, hybrid theory ep. It has 6 or 7 tracks and they used this album as a try to get signed by a label. it was released in 1999.

    JayFPM

  71. Coby Peterson

    was this when they were called Xero?

    Tyler Schurr

    Nope, they were Xero when Wakefield was in the band. They turned after into Hybrid Theory after he left and Chester joined, then switched to Linkin Park later on.

    joey green

    Tyler Schurr it would be nice if xero did a reuion.

    daphne munroe

    Nope the were called HT.

    Reece Bark

    daphne munroe they were called both Xero and Hybrid Theory at some point

    dedley01

    It was written when the band was called Xero.

  72. Tyron Turner

    The chorus sounds like Crush 40 is singing

    Nate S

    MegaTwiztid15 Dude. my thoughts exactly.

    Autistinquisitor

    Right? So glad there are more Crush 40 AND Linkin Park fans around.
