When They Come For Me
by Linkin Park



Yeah
I am not a pattern to be followed
The pill that i'm on is a tough one to swallow
I'm not a criminal, not a roll model
Not a born leader i'm a tough act to follow

I am not the fortune and the fame
nor the same person tellin you to forfeit the game
I came in the ring like a dog on a chain
and I found out the underbelly is sicker than it seems
And it seems ugly, but it can get worse
Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse
Cause once you got a theory of how a thing works
Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first

And i'm not a robot
I'm not a monkey
I will not dance even if the beats funky
Opposite of lazy, far from a punk
yall oughta stop talkin start tryin to catch up mother fucker

and all the people say

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

try to catch up mother fucker

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

Lauryn said money changes situation
Big said it increase the complication
kane said, dont step i aint the one
Chuck said a uzi weigh a mother fuckin ton
and i'm just a student of the game they taught me
rockin every stage and every place they brought me
im awfully underrated, but came here to correct it
And so it aint mistaken i'ma state it for the record

I am the opposite of wack
opposite of weak
opposite of slack
synonym of heat
synonym of crack
closest to a peak, far from a punk
yall oughta stop talkin start tryin to catch up mother fucker

and all the people say

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

try to catch up mother fucker

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

ooooh when they come for me
come for me, ill be gone

ooooh when then they come for me
come for me, ill be gone

ooooh when they come for me
come for me, ill be gone

and all the people say

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

try to catch up mother fucker

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

and all the people say

aaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah

try to catch up mother fucker
