And One Freestyle Lyrics

Sorry if this is really late but I noticed Linkin Park put the official lyrics to And One up on their website, and the freestyle (at the end) lyrics are:

 

Spit drips from the jaw of the witless witness

Cryptic colloquialisms shift your mid rift

Dog paddle through a bog of shadows and smog with my

Thought catalog: analogue rap battle log

Keep my distance, and fear resistance, hurt by persistence

The twisted web of tangled lies Strangles my hope to waste and numbs the taste

And I'm forced to face these hate crimes Against the state of being

Feeling the weightlessness press me to the ceiling

Reeling around rooms

Riding a bubble of sound

Tuned to the frequency making your

Chest shake with every boom

Involuntary muscle contraction

Ignoring your neck’s breaking

Musical gas fume euphoria

The sound pounds to make the dead flush

To hand you a head rush with read thoughts and said stuff

 

The lyrics to that section of the song have been incorrect for years and years.

Those LP.com lyrics definitely are more accurate, but they're still not 100%, for example, the last line is clearly "read RHYMES and said stuff" on the recording, not "read thoughts."

It really confuses me how Linkin Park messed up their own lyrics. In The Rising Tied's booklet, Tak has two bars that are completely different from what we get on the actual song, so who knows.

The lyrics in the booklets are usually sent in on paper before the album is completely finished to give the record company time to start the manufacturing process, so if lyrics end up being changed at the last minute, it isn't always reflected in the booklet. Alternatively, they could've just ad-libbed a line while recording vocals that wasn't identical to what was on the lyrics sheet, so it never ended up on paper. The chorus to Crawling is also different from what appears in the Hybrid Theory booklet.
