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 role model
Not a born leader
I'm a tough act to follow

I am not a fortunate of fame
On the same verse I'm telling 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's seems ugly, but it can get worse,
Cos' even the blueprint is a gift and a curse
Cos' once you have the theory of how the 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 beat's funky
Opposite of lazy, far from a punk
Y'all oughta stop talking, start tryin' to catch up mother fucker

And all the people say
Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Try to catch up mother fucker

Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Mom said money changes situations
Big said it increases the complication
Kane said don't stab, I ain't the one
Chuck said that doozie weigh a mother fucking ton
And I'm just a student of the game that they taught
Rocking every stage and every place that they brought me
I'm often underrated
And also corrected

And so this second I'm gonna save it for the record
I am the opposite of wack
Opposite of weak
Opposite of slack
Standing in the heat

Standing in a crack

Closest to a beat, far from a punk
Yall oughta stop talking, start tryin' to catch up mother fucker
And all the people say
Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Try to catch up mother fucker

Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

Oh when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone

And all the people say
Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Try to catch up mother fucker

Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

And all the people say
Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Try to catch up mother fucker

Aaaaaaaaaaah aaaaaaaaah aaaaaaah

Hey hey hey hey

Hey hey hey hey

Hey hey hey hey
