Linkin Park Songs With the Best Meaning

As we know, Linkin Park's songs have very deep meanings, but these are the ones with the deepest, most meaningful meanings.

The Top Ten

1 Breaking the Habit

It's about suicide, and it reminds Chester about his past of sexual abuse and drug addiction. - lukestheman4

Reminds Chester of what he used to do and he's left them all aside and decides to move on

It really isn't about moving on (at least not in a positive way). "I don't know how I got this way, I'll never be alright, so I'm breaking the habits." This song is about not having a way out besides suicide...

About Chester's past drug abuse.

2 From the Inside

I think it's about letting out everything that haunted you, everything that bothered you, getting rid of every lie, everything that you had to take and moving on...

It's about taking lies and disceit from inside yourself and getting rid of it. - lukestheman4

3 Castle of Glass Castle of Glass
4 Numb

should be number 1 by far, not just parents expectations, thats only a small fraction of what this songs meaning although very much apart of it. take every lyric one by one and it could be anything from the pressure from a boy/girlfriend to being used

"I am tired of being what you want me to be". That says it all. There comes a point of time in our lives when we realize that we are just not being what we are and merely being what others want us to be. Opens your eyes really. LP 4evr! - hanaan143

This song practically describes my life

It's about not living up to your parents expectations. - lukestheman4

5 Leave Out All the Rest

"Don't be afraid
I've taken my beating
I've shared what I've made
I'm strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I've never been perfect
But neither have you"

These lines very much sum up why this song has a huge impact on any average person...
Its about accepting the weaknesses and mistakes and asking people to forgive when You're gone..

It's about being remembered for the good things you did and not the bad. - lukestheman4

6 Crawling

This song is about when Chester used to be addicted to drugs to escape the pain and insecurities he felt after being sexually abused. "I've felt this way before, so insecure" (self explanatory- being abused has made him become insecure about himself) "crawling in my skin, these wounds they will not heal" the drugs make it seem as if something is crawling inside of him, and his emotional wounds from his childhood will not heal. "Fear is how I fall, confusing what is real" drugs helped him with his fears, and they caused him to hallucinate (so he literally confuses what is real)

It's about insecurity and sexual abuse. - lukestheman4

You guys are idiots. I know every song meaning by lp
. This one is about when chester use to do drugs, an how it made him feel bad, "crawling in my skin, these wounds they will not heal.. " he is saying that the drugs made him feel like somthing was in his skin, an when he poked his skin to shoot up the druga, the holes wouldn't heal. Watch the video an do some research.

7 In The End

It's saying that if you grow up different, you will want to go far away from your position, making you get carried aways with it. One day you see it's not worth it.

It's about realizing that no matter how hard you try something it doesn't matter. - lukestheman4

It is about growing up and how child hood doesn't matter any more or how when you do drugs life and what you do with it seems to not matter anymore no matter what you do with it

8 Somewhere I Belong Somewhere I Belong

This song mean to me in a different way.. I suffer from severe social anxiety disorder and my thoghts exactly fit to the lyrics.. I think how much I want to be a normal person and be happy but because of my own fault I can't never feel the real happiness in my life.

I suffer from the same thing and this song perfectly describes how I feel.

This song reminds me of my past
It has a very close relation with my life. This definitely should be number 1.

9 Waiting for the End Waiting for the End

It's a great song about the power of life. And that it's never quite the end, it's only the beginning of something new. And though it may not be easy to get to that start, it's an amazing thing when you reach it.

It's about no matter how much the world and yourself changes, you can still find yourself. - lukestheman4

"the hardest part of ending is starting again "do I have to say any more?

10 Hands Held High Hands Held High

This song has a very deep meaning and a very good one about what war does not only, to soldiers but to the citizens of the country who's fighting the war.

I think this songs meaning is fairly obvious if you've heard it and should definitely be in the top 5

If you haven't year heard this song whilst reading the lyrics, y'all don't know how magical Linkin Park can be!

The Contenders

11 One Step Closer
12 Burning In the Skies Burning In the Skies

It's about doing bad things in your past that come back to haunt you. - lukestheman4

Very deep and powerful track - underrated by far

13 What I've Done What I've Done

I think Breaking The Habit and Numb are the top of this list but this one should be at least #3 it's meaningful so I voted for it!

Reminding us of what we've done to the world of bad things, beautiful.

14 Easier to Run Easier to Run

This song is about abuse, as Chester was sexually abused as a child.

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I've kept locked away, no one can ever see (this means that he tried to keep it bottled up inside)
Wounds so deep they never show, they never go away
Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they've played (this shows how he can't get the thoughts of it out of his head and it haunts him)

Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn't have (self-explanatory)
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back and never moving forward so there'd never be a past (he's willing to kill himself just to escape from the pain)

Just washing it aside, all of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel misplaced is so much simpler than change (he wants to pretend it never happened so he doesn't have to change anything)

15 Lost In the Echo Lost In the Echo
16 The Catalyst The Catalyst

Why isn't this number 1 it's so amazing the song is about begging god for forgiveness for a past sin this is such an amazing song

17 Powerless Powerless
18 Iridescent Iridescent

Probably one of the best songs for anyone in a time of need. - Drewstar

Probably the best song I've ever heard

19 Runaway Runaway

If this was a single it'd be way up there. It's being rejected by society and wanting to get away from it all.
