In memoriam Chester Bennington

The Hybrid Theory was published in 2000.

At that time I was 14. I was a frustrated and angry teenager, just as so many others in that age. Those were the days when I started becoming interested in music. Finding my own taste, and basically myself in music. It was a whole new wide world for me.

 

In this world, there was among others, the Linkin Park. I remember hearing the song Crawling from MTV and feeling, wow, this song describes perfectly what is going on in my head. It expresses how I feel, what kind of thunder I have in my soul. I pushed myself into the underground music to let out all the anger and violence via the distorted guitar, the bass, drums and the growling. Music helped me through such crises, which I thought would destroy me. Music was there for me when I felt lonely. Somehow it feels, music took away the pain or at least made it tolerable.

And here we are today.

The singer, who gave us this cure, is gone. He died because he remained alone with his demons. His music took away so many demons, except his own ones.
May he finds peace now. Now and ever.

Lyrics:

Wake in a sweat again
Another day’s been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I’ll never leave this place
There’s no escape
I’m my own worst enemy

 

I’ve given up
I’m sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I’m suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me!

 

I don’t know what to take
Thought I was focused, but I’m scared
I’m not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow, somewhere
And no one cares
I’m my own worst enemy

 

I’ve given up
I’m sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I’m suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me!

 

God!

 

Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my…
Put me out of my fucking misery!

 

I’ve given up
I’m sick of feeling
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I’m suffocating!
