The Catalyst by Linkin Park

Linkin park as released another one of those songs that seems to bother you all day. Their new single is being described by listeners as "Edgy techno rock" and "Metal with a techno center."
I myself have been listening to Linkin Park since i was in middle school, and their style has changed. In this song lies an edgy, barbed wire like center that pulls you in after each play of the song.
The lyrics are as follows:

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
[x3]

No
And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light

God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun

Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

[x2]
God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns
For the sins of our hands
The sins of our tongues
The sins of our fathers
The sins of our young
No

And when I close my eyes tonight
To symphonies of blinding light

God save us everyone
Will we burn inside the fires of a thousand suns

Ooh

Like memories in cold decay
Transmissions echoing away
Far from the world of you and I
Where oceans bleed into the sky

Lift me up
Let me go
[x16]

[x2]
God bless us everyone
We're a broken people living under loaded gun
And it can't be outfought
It can't be outdone
It can't be outmatched
It can't be outrun
No

It seems that Linkin Park has taken a new route in music. In my opinion it's like they are experimenting with Realism. If you listen to a few of their other, well known songs, for example: Pushing Me Away, New Divide, or Numb, you can see the slight similarity. These new lyrics and beats are intense, and i think i stand for all the other fans when i hope to see more.

The Catalyst is the new single for their album A Thousand Suns, and can be bought soon.
