  1. I wonder about "Damn" now that Holly Brooke is Skylar Grey. Huge Grammy winning songwriters usually don't show up on independent hip-hop albums. I wonder what kind of deal was worked out and if they have permission to use the song anymore.

    If it weren't for Mike she wouldn't even fucking exist, she owes him her career.


  2. I wish Mike still wrote lyrics like this.

    Xero's verses, Part Of Me's verses, High Voltage's verses (though it was a B-Side) And One's end verse. Hell, even fucking Crawling's "Raindrops" bridge.

     

    "Take you to the depths of the bottom of the well" HOT DAMN

     

     

    Warner fucking made them, despite Mike (and/or the band) denying so. ATS is the band saying fuck you to all that, doing whatever they want to do, not what they're expected to.


  3. You're twisting the definition to fit the "pop" standards, as in catchy tunes and all that shit.

     

    Hybrid Theory is as fucking pop as it gets, defined in its own genre of music. I mean, have you seen the change in lyrics from the earlier versions to the final ones?

     

    Esaúl

     

    "From planetary signs, rising over the horizon, smaller than a flystand"

    "A thoroughbred, thoroughly bled, and led to the land where they never come back"

    "And the killing of the killer with a flick of the wrist"

     

    Exemplar verses.

     

     

    A Place for My Head

     

    "It makes me think of how you act to me, you do favours then rapidly you just turn around and start asking me..."

     

    or...

     

    The Untitled

     

    "It multiplies 'til you can taste the Sun, and burnt by the sky you try to take it from"

    "With the twilight through the skylight and the highlight's on a frame of steel"

     

     

    In The End

     

    "Trying to hold on but didn't even know, I wasted it all just to watch you go..."

     

    Final versions are as pop as it gets.

     

     

    The contrast between lyric themes can be seen miles away. ATS is evolution in musical and lyrical terms, and there's no denying of that.


  4. Cruel Daze of Summer

    As the rain falls down I see you burning through

    I can feel my legs are shaking

    What'd you say, what'd you say, what'd you say?

    Is there something wrong?

    You don't need me anymore like I need do?

     

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

    This cruel daze of summer

    burns so hot

    The vows we've made are under attack

    I can feel myself pushing back

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

     

    While this ... strikes unknown my love

    I can feel my heart is breaking

    What'd you say, what'd you say, what'd you say?

    Is there something wrong?

    You don't need me anymore like I do?

     

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

    This cruel daze of summer

    burns so hot

    The vows we've made are under attack

    I can feel myself pushing back

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

     

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

    This cruel daze of summer

    burns so hot

    The vows we've made are under attack

    I can feel myself pushing back

    Don't tell me what you're running from

    or what you've done

     

    Can't get right one of the words in the verses.

     

    I'll Try Not To Destroy You

     

    You can fight until you let yourself go

    Until the rest of them will sell you so

    As you wonder where your friends will go

    Until you wander in these fields alone

     

    All I've got is to follow this feeling,

    to see where it's leading

    All we've got is to follow this feeling,

    to see where it's leading

     

    You're the sunlight

    You're the feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    You can't deny it as it takes control

    As the puzzle's strings unleash you ...

    As you wonder where your friends have gone

    Won't let you wander in these streets alone

     

    All I've got is to follow this feeling,

    to see where it's leading

    All we've got is to follow this feeling,

    to see where it's leading

     

    You're the sunlight

    You're the feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    You're the sunlight

    Graceful feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    If I can't find this simple

    I cannot find you

    If I can't find this simple

    but I found you

     

    You're the sunlight

    You're the feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    You're the sunlight

    Graceful feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    You're the sunlight

    You're the feeling

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in it all

    The virtue in us all

     

    Close Continuance

     

    You was scared,

    and I was too

    The more that I think about it, baby

    I can't blame you

     

    I can't say anything

    can't remember my name

    Cause my pain's everywhere

    when we were the same

     

    We would talk about it,

    at least we would try

    And I can't remember,

    the day I died

    I was just standing there,

    looking at you

    My feet on the ground

    this shit just hit me

    We didn't make us out

     

    And why does it have to be this way?

    When it's ..

    Running an endless ...

    and I'm dying

    We've always been the one to blame,

    and I'm scared

    to face the darkness ... alone

     

    I can feel this precious crushing self

    Like patience waiting for the final blow

    In time we found our hearts have turned to stone

    How could this love ever fall so long?

     

    And why does it have to be this way?

    When it's ...

    Running an endless ...

    And I'm dying

    We've always been the one to blame,

    and I'm scared

    to face the darkness ... alone

     

    Your fate, it lies, cuts right through you

    No place, no time, can't stop running to you

    Your face, it tries, to hide confusion

    Our love, is like, a helpless victim

     

    As you feel the sunlight

    As you feel the sunlight

     

    And why does it have to be this way?

    When it's

    Running an endless ...

    And I'm dying

    We've always been the one to blame,

    and I'm scared

    to face the darkness ... alone

     

     

    Surrounded By Cowards

     

    You make me feel like I'm falling apart

    (and now you're running away)

    And now I find that we're out in the dark

     

    I've come to see that we've ... nothing

    and I've lost my way home

    And now I'm nothing,

     

    Nothing without you

     

    How can you find yourself

    when you're surrounded by cowards?

    How can you be so sure

    what they're really after?

    How can you find yourself?

    How can you be so sure

    what they're really after?

     

    As your ...

    (this is a better way)

    ... playing the part

    (but it's too much to take)

    Now I'm not thinking clear

    but I've lost my mind, I find

    Now I'm nothing,

     

    Nothing without you

     

    How can you play the games

    when you don't want to know

    what they're really after?

     

    How can you play the games

    when you don't want to know?

     

    How can you find yourself

    when you're surrounded by cowards?

    How can you be so sure

    what they're really after?

    How can you find yourself?

    How can you be so sure

    what they're really after?


  5. I think in Palm Spring Reset lyrics in the chorus, I think that says:

     

    I feel it in my face

    (The sun is in your smile)

    There is no second place

    (No living in denial)

    I’m burning down this gaze

    (We're making our worth while)

    The pressure fades away

     

    That's what I hear in the chorus

    You're right.

  6. Palm Springs Reset

     

    I feel it in my face

    (The sun is in your smile)

    There is no second place

    (We're leaving here tonight)

    I'm writing down these games

    (We're making our worth while)

     

    If I'm coming undone,

    will you pray for me?

    And if I'm crawling alone,

    will you, cradle me?

    And if you stumble upon the truth,

    will you stay with me?

    And if we happen to find our youth,

    will it set us free?

     

    The pleasure fades away

     

    If I'm walking alone,

    will you walk with me?

    If I'm burning myself in you,

    will you uncover me?

    And if you happen to hear my call,

    will you wait for me?

    And if we're corrupted by it all,

    we can be redeemed

     

    I feel it in my face

    (The sun is in your smile)

    There is no second place

    (We're leaving here tonight)

    I'm writing down these games

     

    And if you stumble upon the truth,

    will you stay with me?

     

    I feel it in my face

    (The sun is in your smile)

    There is no second place

    (We're leaving here tonight)

    I'm writing down these games

     

    The pleasure fades away


  7. Here's my transcription of Slip:

     

     

    In the center of the silence

    Violent thoughts are thrown through / the thick smoke

    As flickering lights brighten the room

    All the things that you wanted to say get lost and thrown away.

    You debate and hesitate to speak your mind

    Can't turn back once you cross the line

    Sometimes, there's someone you know who just doesn't care

    Who has to see you go to know you were there.

     

    This is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

    I know that this is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

     

    I know all of this will soon be gone

    You don't really have to prove them wrong.

     

    Sometimes, you've got no control of where you go.

    Taken down a road you don't know / and you feel

    So lost you want to hide your face

    And you don't recognize the place you're in.

    Sometimes, the sun doesn't shine your way.

    Sometimes, the night doesn't turn to day.

    But sometimes, the light's so bright

    It burns through the night and keeps the darkness at bay

    Either way,

     

    This is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

    I know that this is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

     

    I know all of this will soon be gone

    You don't really have to prove them wrong.

    I know soon enough you'll make them see.

    You'll be far away from them with me.

     

    Follow the link in the chain without a name

    Seal the light, the dark contains remains.

    Taken away from the place you've been trapped.

    Break all you know to bring it all back.

     

    This is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

    I know that this is the sun behind the rain

    Even if sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    May have begun to run an endless race

    But I never look back when I begin it.

     

    I know all of this will soon be gone

    You don't really have to prove them wrong.

    I know soon enough you'll make them see.

    You'll be far away from them, alone with me.

    These are perfect.


  8. Blue is fucking dreadful. Thank God it never even made Hybrid Theory recording process stuff.

     

    [slip]

    In the center of the silence,

    Finally thoughts are going through

    The thick smoke of flickering lights

    That blind the room

    All the things that you wanted to say

    Get lost and thrown away

    You can maybe hesitate to speak your mind

    Can't turn back when you crossed the line

    Sometimes it's someone you know who just doesn't care

    Has to see you go to know you were there

     

    This is the (??) of the rain

    Even then sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    (??)

    But I never look back to the beginning

     

     

    I know that this is the (??) of the rain

    Even then sometimes I feel I can't stand another minute

    (??)

    But I never look back to the beginning

     

    I know all of this will soon be gone

    You don't really have to prove them wrong

    I know all of this will soon be gone

    You don't really have to prove them wrong

    I know soon enough you'll make them see

    You me far away from them alone/along with me?

     

     

    Follow the link of the chain without a name
