Linkin Park "Hands Held High" lyrics

Translation to:elitsrtruk

Hands Held High

Turn my mic up louder I got to say somethingLight weights step to the side when we come in

Feel it in your chest the syllables get pumpingPeople on the street they panic and start running

Words on loose leaf sheet complete comingI jump in my mind and summon the rhyme, I'm dumping

Healing the blind I promise to let the sun inSick of the dark ways we march to the drum and

Jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumpingFuck that I wanna see some fists pumping

Risk something, take back what's yoursSay something that you know they might attack you for

Cause I'm sick of being treated like I have beforeLike it's stupid standing for what I'm standing for

Like this war's really just a different brand of warLike it doesn't cater the rich and abandon poor

Like they understand you in the back of the jetWhen you can't put gas in your tank

These fuckers are laughing their way to the bank and cashing the chequeAsking you to have compassion and have some respect

For a leader so nervous in an obvious wayStuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

And the rest of the world watching at the end of the dayIn their living room laughing like "what did he say?"


In my living room watching but I am not laughingCause when it gets tense I know what might happen

World is cold the bold men take actionHave to react or get blown into fractions

Ten years old it's something to seeAnother kid my age drugged under a jeep

Taken and bound and found later under a treeI wonder if he had thought the next one could be me

Do you see the soldiers they're out todayThey brush the dust from bullet proof vests away

It's ironic at times like this you prayBut a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday

There's bombs in the buses, bikes, roadsInside your market, your shops, your clothes

My dad he's got a lot of fear I knowBut enough pride inside not to let that show

My brother had a book he would hold with prideA little red cover with a broken spine

On the back, he hand-wrote a quote insideWhen the rich wage war it's the poor who die

Meanwhile, the leader just talks awayStuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay

And the rest of the world watching at the end of the dayboth scared and angry like "what did he say?"

[Chorus x6]

[x6]With hands held high into the sky so blue,As the ocean opens up to swallow you.
