Song of the Day: From the Inside by Linkin Park

what if you replaced the cities with pics from where you and a friend come from!?!?!:

From the Inside” is a song by American rock band Linkin Park. It was released as the fourth single from their second album, Meteora and appears as the tenth track on the record. It was released in Australia and the United States (it was released as download only in the UK) in 2004 as the fourth single from the album.

Lyrics:

I don’t know who to trust your surprise
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Happy thoughts sift through dust and the lies
(Trying not to break but I’m so tired of this deceit)

(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
’cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you

Tension is building inside steadily
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Happy thoughts forcing their way out of me
(Trying not to break but I’m so tired of this deceit)
(Every time I try to make myself get back up on my feet)
(All I ever think about is this)
(All the tiring time between)
(And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me)

Take everything from the inside and throw it all away
‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you

I won’t waste myself on you
You
You
Waste myself on you
You
You

I’ll take everything from the inside and throw it all away
‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you

Everything from the inside and just throw it all away
‘Cause I swear for the last time I won’t trust myself with you
You
You

This song is one of Linkin Park’s heavier songs and is written in a 6/8 time signature. It progresses from a more melodic-stylization at the song’s beginning, but then grows more intense towards the end. The song also features more screamed vocals, with Bennington screaming for about 10 seconds straight during the bridge. The earliest version of the song can be heard on “Frat Party at the Pankake Festival”. In this version, part of the unfinished instrumental can be heard for a few seconds, when Mike Shinoda talks about making new music. There is also an interlude to the next track at the end of the song, like many of the other tracks on the album, in this case leading into “Nobody’s Listening”.

The Live in Texas performance of “From the Inside” was included as the single’s b-side. Other live performances of the song were included as the b-side to both “Numb” and “What I’ve Done”, respectively.
