High Voltage
by Linkin Park



You know what I mean?
You could put a label on a life, Put a label on a life style.
You know
(Somtimes)Put a label on how you wake up every morning, and go to bed at night. (Hybrid)

I been diggin in the crates ever since I was livin in space
before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits.
I mastered numerology and big bang theology
performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
invented the mic so I could start blessing it
chinchecking kids to make my point like an impressionist.
many men have tried to shake us
but I twist my cords in double helixes to show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces
cast a spell of instrumentalness and all of you MCs who hate us
so you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
from now to infinity let icons be bygones
I firebomb ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats but moved on to a promise
I stomp S* with or without an accomplice
and run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

(Akira)
I put a kick in the backbones of clones with microphones
never satisfy my rhyme jones
Sprayin bright day over what you might say
My blood type is crylon techni-colour type A.
On highways wrought with roadrage
I'm patient to win with cages of tin that bounce all around
(Surround sound)
Devouring the scene
subliminal gangrene paintings overall the same thing
sing song karaoke copy bullS*
break bones verbally with stick and stone tactics
4th demension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away with the pencil
Pistol Official, 16 line the rhyme missile
While you risk your all, I pick out all your flaws
Spittin rah-Blah-blah-blah-blah
you can say you saw

High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide

I like to rock and rap
You know what I mean?
People out there are like, you know, Wow
Thats a new invention
Don't they know?
We are constantly evolving
It is constantly changing
(Somtimes)
theres alot there to change
why you always gotta put labels on -
There ain't no label for this S*
But they always gotta try to put a label on it,
Try to create some so they could, water it down
(Sometimes I feel like a prophet)
(Misunderstood)
(Under the gun like a new disease)
(Sometimes I feel like a prophet)
(Misunderstood)
(Under the gun like a new disease)

High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High Voltage
The unforgettable sound
High Voltage
Bringin you up and taking you down
High Voltage
Coming at you from every side
High Voltage
Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
High Voltage

You know what I mean? Could put a label on a lifestyle
