Wastelands
by Linkin Park



This is war with no weapons
Marching with no stepping
Murder with no killing
Illin' every direction
First
No sequel
Do the math
No equal
John with no Yoko
More power less people
And no
I'm not afraid of that
Print it in your paperback
Every rap is made in fact
To act as a delayed attack
Every phrase a razor blade
That's saved until they play it back
To slay and leave 'em laying on the pavement
Bang
Fade to black

In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today

Roll credits you get it
The show's done
They're talking for just talking
But meaning, they got none
None of 'em come proper
They talk like a shotgun
But how many got bred with integrity
Not one
So no
I'm not afraid to see
These suckers
Hold a blade to me
Ain't a way to shake
The ground I built
Before you came to be
Take it
Now you take it
I'm the opposite of vacancy
And this not negotiation
Y'all can hate
And Wait and see

In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today

In the wastelands of today
Where there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today

In the wastelands of today
In the wastelands of today
