There's a few you missed for those categories. I may have also missed a few, though.

 

Lies

Papercut - "A face that watches every time they lie"

Runaway - "I wanna know the answers / No more lies"

Pushing Me Away - "I've lied to you"

Hit The Floor - "You knew your lies would divide us / But you lied anyway"

From The Inside - "Heavy thoughts soft through dust / And the lies"

What I've Done - "Cause I've drawn regret from the truth of a thousand lies"

No More Sorrow - "I see liars and theives abuse power with greed"

In Between - "Between my lies and how the truth got in the way"

In Pieces - "There's truth in your lies"

Blackout - "It's written upon your face / All the lies / How they cut so deeply"

LOST IN THE ECHO - "So one last lie / I can see through"

BURN IT DOWN - "You told me yes / You held me high / And I believed when you told that lie"

SKIN TO BONE - "Your deception / My disgust"

 

Love

And One - "It's too late to love me now"

 

Running

No Roads Left - Pretty much the entire chorus is about running

I'LL BE GONE - Leaving and running are pretty similar in regards to the context. You can add it if you want, up to you.

 

Sun

I'LL BE GONE - "Let the sun fade out and another one rise", "We crossed that horizon / This sun is setting now"

UNTIL IT BREAKS - "Give me the strength of the rising sun"

 

Truth

Runaway - "I wanna know the truth / Instead of wondering why"

In Between - "Between my lies and how the truth got in the way"

In Pieces - "There's truth in your lies"

 

Waiting

A LIGHT THAT NEVER COMES - "Waiting for the light that never comes"

 

Waking

With You - "I woke up in a dream today"

Leave Out All The Rest - "After my dreaming / I woke with this fear"

 

And you can also add:

 

Fire

Burning In The Skies

BURN IT DOWN

Until It's Gone - "A fire needs a space to burn"

A Line In The Sand - "Today, I looked for a sign / With flames in my hands / A line in the sand / Between yours and mine"

 

Pain

Easier To Run - "It's easier to run / Replacing this pain with something numb"

Figure .09 - "Nothing ever stops all these thoughts / And the pain attached to them"

No More Sorrow - "I see pain / I see need"

No Roads Left - "Why does my pain look like my pride?"

 

Pride

Points of Authority - "My life / My pride / Is broken"

By Myself - "Do I hide my pride / From these bad dreams"

In Between - "Between my pride and my promise"

No Roads Left - "Why does my pain look like my pride?"

 

War

Empty Spaces - Again, add it if you want. The instrumental depicts a war/battle.

Keys To The Kingdom - "We start the final war"

All For Nothing - "So whatcha waitin' for / Anticipatin' more / While you debate what it could take to instigate a war"

War

Wastelands - "This is war with no weapons"

 

I'm sure I missed quite a few, but there's some. I'm Dylan's a poop stick and Dylan is I'm really cool always.

Thanks guys, I wasn't planning on doing every single example in one sitting, I just wanted to give an idea of what I'm looking for. Those have been added now, and I'll clean things up and put the entries in chronological order later.

Something that always bother me :P:

 

Given Up:

Looking for help somehow somewhere.

And no one cares.

 

Leave Out All the Rest:

But no one would listen,

cause no one else care

 

Bleed It Out:

Bled myself out

and no one cares

 

This had to be intentional... HAD TO BE xD

Seeing is a common one:

COG- 4 U 2 C

Papercut- I see the light betrays me

Numb- I can see you there

LFY-I look exactly like you always wanted to see

With You- Now I see, even when I close my eyes

and more

 

There will be even more if we classify looking as the same category:

LFY

GU- looking for help somehow somewhere

NRL-Why does my pain look like my pride?

Papercut-It's like a paranoid looking over my back

and more

 

There's also a lot with eyes:

Forgotten- Eyes burning up

Reading My Eyes

With You

and more

 

I'm totally sure there will be a lot songs with words like Going and Taking

 

In my opinion you should delete stuff like The Requiem, cause those are just the same lyrics as the ones in The Catalyst. That's as you would have to list OSC lyrics+Plaster lyrics+OSC mix 1 of 4 lyrics etc. because all of those song's lyrics (which are the same in each of those songs) fit under the Breaking category. A bit meaningless, isn't it?

Gone

 

Hit The Floor: "And now it's all gone"

Valentine's Day: "So now you're gone"

Primo: "Just carry on and miss me when I'm gone"

I'll Be Gone

Until It's Gone: "You don't know what you've got until it's gone"

 

Blood

 

And One: "Taking you out of my blood to bring me peace"

Nobody's Listening: "Blood sweat and tears"

Debris: "My blood feels like it's sitting still in my veins [...] These memories are the blood beating under my skin"

Bleed It Out

Blackout: "Blackout blood in your eye"

A Line In The Sand: "I had never seen blood"

 

Water

 

Slip: "This is the sun behind the rain"

What I've Done: "And wash away"

Hands Held High: "As the ocean opens up to swallow you"

The Little Things Give You Away: "Water gray [...] Like an ocean [...] Six feet underwater"

Until It Breaks/Three Band Terror: "We swim against the rising waves"

Rebellion: "I want a flood I want an ocean to wash my confusion clean"

A Line In The Sand: "You sold me an ocean and I was lost in the flood"

 

Mistakes

 

Debris: "We want our own mistakes"

 

Running

 

Slip: "Runaway"

Asbestos: "And the girls tell the boys that they better fucking run away"

 

Sun

 

Slip: "This is the sun behind the rain"

Hands Held High: "I promise to let the sun in"

 

I don't think I'll include that because this is just for LP lyrics.

Truth Inside A lie is not a Linkin Park song.

Added Promise to the list. Soul, if you could strikethrough the ones that we have done, that would be great, I know I still have some on the first page to add, along with yours.

Adding a counter to the list would be interesting

What do you mean by that?

 

 

And for anyone adding new lyrics, please post them like this if you can, it is easier to paste it in and makes formatting quicker:

Song Name - "Lyrics lyrics lyrics."
