Castle of Glass-Linkin Park

Castle of Glass-Linkin Park

I could have picked many songs today, I’m a huge fan of Linkin Park. I read on songfacts.comhttp://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=26591

Like most of the songs on Living Things, the song’s lyrical content can be interpreted in several ways. Chester Bennington explained to MTV News: “When Mike was talking about the lyrics, at one point he had said, ‘You know, it’s kind of like finding yourself as this broken part of this big machine, and feeling like you’re not part of that, or trying to find your place in the bigger scheme of things.’ And that can mean a solider coming home from war, and trying to fit back into society, or a person getting out of prison, or whatever.

And here I am, envisioning this big, beautiful glass castle on a hill, and, like, unicorns. I’m thinking like ‘Yeah, if you zoom in, I’m this little broken part of this castle that no one knows about, and I may seem like flawed and not important, but when you back up and look at the big picture, you’re part of this really beautiful thing that keeps you together,” he continued. “And it was a really interesting twist; I think a lot of our lyrics can be taken from multiple perspectives, depending on what you want the song to be about… they can be felt on so many different levels.”

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again

Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova’s glow
And drop me down to the dream below

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see

Bring me home in a blinding dream
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything else I need to be

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see
For you to see
For you to see
