Papercut by Linkin Park 🎵
This song is now more than 20 years old, so in my opinion it qualifies as a #ThrowbackThursday track. This song has aged well. It still sounds great. But it does hit different now, knowing that the Chester (their vocalist) lost his battle to depression and anxiety. Makes you really appreciate the lyrics in this song, and all their other songs for that matter.
Why does it feel like night today? Something in here's not right today. Why am I so uptight today? Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first Or how the pressure was fed But I know just what it feels like To have a voice in the back of my head
Like a face that I hold inside A face that awakes when I close my eyes A face that watches every time I lie A face that laughs every time I fall (And watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim That the face inside is here in me Right underneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back It's like a whirlwind inside of my head It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin ... The sun goes down I feel the light betray me...
