Inside and outside the box.
Anyone who thinks otherwise,
Should just say their goodbyes.
For if they dont like Linkin Park,
They will die and be somewhere dark.
This poem says it all,
Now lets get a Linkin Park CD at the mall!!
This poem is kinda gay,
Maybe I'll write a good one some day!
Ode to Rise AgainstThe band spoke not to the masses,Ode to Rise Against3 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
but to those whose wrists wore slashes.
Their words lacked a semblance of formality,
but were meant for those with abnormality.
The message was for all those whose pain was immense;
it told them it was time to rise, Rise Against.
Rise Against the injustice and pain.
Defend the memory of the slain.
Stand for those who are helpless.
Always try to be selfless.
Work hard for better futures.
Treat the world's wounds with sutures.
Rise Against their pseudo-perfection.
With music, they gave us direction.
Do not let yourself be tame.
Do not give in to their game.
Fight back, but not with violence,
and do not live in silence.
Rise Against the corrupt regime.
They are not as strong as they seem.
Live only by your moral laws.
Stand up, stand out, embrace your flaws.
Arm-in-arm, we make a wall.
Together, we can stand tall.
Rise Against the fanatic;
those whose beliefs are static.
They fear our success, our progress,
and so it is us they oppress.
In time, my suffer

Stop asking me what is two plus three
You know I don’t get it
So why not forget it
I don’t know all of my ABC’s
So stop all the questions
I’m falling out of line
(Call the asylum now,
just call the asylum now)
You know I’m not gonna be
Some great genius just like Einstein
(Call the asylum now,
just call the asylum now)
I’ve become so dumb!
I can’t tie my shoe!
How do you spell cat!?
What is two plus two!?
How do you tell time!?
I sound like I’m ten!
What's this planet called!?
What’s my name again!?
Can’t you see that you’re torturing me
With all of this knowledge
My brain will soon explode
I’m tired of all your useless teachings
How does this affect what I grow up to do
(My brain’s gonna blow
In awhile it will explode)
I just flunked my math test
And I failed English class too
(My brain’s gonna blow
In awhile it will explode)
How much more of this crap will I have to go through!?

"Ok, this thing is kind of hard to control..." Dempsey was busy stearing the missle towards the dragons with some difficulty, keeping it straight was one thing, turning it the other hand was quite another. So far he wasted at least three missles, and he had three left. This is the fourth one he is using.
"Who ever designed this thing - is really a genius - but turning the dam thing in a different direction is a massive pain in the ass too do."
Takeo, Nikolai, Richtofen were on Dempsey's left side. And Roebuck, Polonsky and Miller were on his right. The six of them were too busy watching the missile flying through the air, while it was under Dempsey's control. Needless to say, they were very very interested in the VR that Dempsey had. Takeo was even looking through his binoculars too see what the result is.
"You know. As much as I'd like to say 'this is impossible' and 'how on earth can a missle be guided' and stuff. But that is frickin' cool." Polonsky said

So rumor has it Giovanni has another kid. That would make two of us.
It came from his former secretary who couldn't help but put together a shredded document in Giovanni's trash can that he insisted on shredding himself. His secretary does -everything- for him including shred anything his asks but this suspicious document pulled out of a stack of paper, he really insisted on shredding himself. She couldn't help herself to find out what the document was that had Giovanni break a sweat. While the boss was out, she had the nerve to pick the lock into his office, recover the shreds of paper and take it home with her to put together.
It was a court order for child support.

Takeo stood up and stretched his back. Hunter was still sleeping softly in the grass ten feet infront of him. Takeo looked around then looked into his gun to make sure that no bullets were jammed in awkwardly. A warrior must always make sure his weapon is in shape for battle. To his surprise, the Arisaka, now known as the Eviserator was in perfect condition and ready to go. The Chronicler's magic must have made his gun abosulutely perfect. The Arisaka has had a poor maitainence performance since it was first built in 1898.

Dempsey quickly twirled his combat knife as he waited for Nikolai, Takeo and Richtofen to return from...whatever they were doing. He grunted as he skillfully wrapped his fingers around the knife's tilt. He observed the blade for a moment, before he sheathed it in one swift move. Rubbing the back of his neck Dempsey suddenly turned, widening his eyes in disbelief.
"I don't believe it!" Dempsey pounded his fists together. "I flippin' knew you were behind these things!" He growled and threw a punch, right at You! Yes you! "I knew there was someone watching me, and it was you! YOU!!!"

For the entire war in Iraq, the press has been kept largely in the dark concerning the number of civilians killed by our forces, and what happened in the aftermath. Now several hundred files posted online reveal some of the true horror while raising questions about lack of compensation.
Here you will find, for example, that when the U.S. drops a bomb that goes awry, lands in an orchard, and does not detonate -- until after a couple of kids go out to take a look -- our military does not feel any moral or legal reason to compensate the family of the dead child because this is, after all, broadly speaking, a "combat situation."
Also: What price (when we do pay) do we place on the life of a 9-year-old boy, shot by one of our soldiers who mistook his book bag for a bomb satchel? Would you believe $500? And when we shoot an Iraqi journalist on a bridge we shell out $2500 to his widow -- but why not the measly $5000 she had requested?

Mistaken for the wrong mind

And the human preachers take all the wounds of this nature
Too hard on paper!
God did give you the past the present and the future written
All you got to do is look into it and start pitching
And if your ashamed of the way you livin
Open the doors of Islam and youll be full of blessings

Tank Dempsey, Nikolai Belinski and Takeo Masaki and Doctor Edward Richtofen were considered the best at what they do: Slaying the dead. And where others failed they succeeded, fighting since the year 1945 to the 1960s, they were very much the best of the best. Where ever they went; the zombies fell before their might and where the zombies have attacked, the gang were there months later armed and ready to fight.
And after hearing a rumour of a zombie attack in America, the gang are about to travel from Germany all the way to the United States by a strange machine that Richtofen had founded, he called it "A Portal".
"So why are we here again?" Dempsey asked.
"For ze LAST time Demphsey. Ve are going to use zhis to get to ze American states." Richtofen explained with irritation. He pressed a few buttons and twisted a few switches here and there and checked regularly how much power they needed or had.

Dempsey ducked the moment the dragon leapt at him. It wasn't fair in his case; that Samantha was actually watching over him of all people. Then again with every thing that had happened he wasn't sure if he should be surprised or freaked out about it. But then stranger things have happened, fighting an enemy that shouldn't even exist was one of those things, him being the oldest human alive (apart from Samantha) and surrounded by dragons and other creatures that resembled animals from his time also went into that category. He grabbed the dragons tail and with all his strength he turned and threw the zombified dragon into a few trees, he looked at his own hands in astonishment at this action.
"Guess I still need to get use to this..." Dempsey thought with a smirk, he immeditally looked up when the dragon roared at him from above. His smirk instantly turned into a scowl as he flexed his arms when the dragon flew down to him at full speed.

Hybrid Theory states that within minutes to midnight,
A meteor will come down and show off a dark light.
But the collision was miscalculated, it went off course.
And it slammed into the ground with an explosion of force.
This reminds me of you with your hand held high.
It swooped down against me and smacked my pride.
Now I give no more sorrow because all this time you've lied.
I was always by myself, you were never on my side.
You told me it's easier to run, to search far and long.
As long as I don't stay here, to find somewhere I belong.
Now I'm looking for a place to leave all the rest.
A place for my head, somewhere I can suppress
My evil thoughts of you, they're trying to runaway.
They came to you in pieces during the shadows of the day.
They're crawling in your skin, you'll need a cure for this itch.
They eat at you from the inside, in between every stitch.
Nobody's listening to you, they hit you down to the floor.
You bleed out your anger, you can't take it anymore.

Chester sat on the stool and said, "Let's see if I can remember how to do this." He started to play "Sunshine of Your Love" by Cream. It was so cute to hear him sing it.
The worker was pleased and said, "This one is on sale for fifty dollars off. Would you like it?"
"Wait then how much is it now?" Chester asked.
"Nine hundred fifty." The worker said in complete seriousness. The sound of the price was unpleasant to me. I could never afford it.
Chester sighed. "Well, what's the cheapest thing you have here?"
"The door." The worker pointed to the door. I guessed he was angry.
"We'll take it!" Chester exclaimed, and he pulled us out of the store.
"Well that was disappointing." I said, grunting.
Chester shrugged. "It's okay. It's almost lunchtime anyway. You wanna go somewhere to eat?"
My stomach growled. "Yes please."
"Where to?" He asked.
"Let's go to a diner." I suggested.

As I walk through my bedroom where I play all my games

Fragging all the players online, until my hands ache... n00b
And I've been gaming and LANning so long that
Even John Carmack thinks that my mind is gone
I'm a man of the LAN, I'm into own-zor-ing.
Got a joystick in one hand and a coke to my chin
But when I finish all my owning and you finish dieing
Then again we're gonna play, until one of us turns blind.

It's hard work playing Half-Life

You used to be my immortal, my tourniquet
An imaginary anchor to hold on to
While I'm being crushed by the weight of the world

Missing is the love I once had for you
But I shall not lose control like you did
No longer your star, but your sweet sacrifice
The lithium carries me farther away
Until I breathe no more
In my last breath I shall whisper softly
That I was good enough for you
While the doctors try to bring me to life
You hold my hand, look at me with dry eyes
And call me your snow white queen

We feel as though we've known you for a thousand years,
We have let out so many tears,
There are not enough words to explain how we feel,
But we are speechless,
For you, we are lost for words,
We don't know what to say.
Your music is magical,
It is tragical that you have gone too soon,
Your light shines down on us just like the moon,
We have to smile, even though our hearts are aching.
Whatever happens, we will always be there,
The world is dangerous and we have to find the lost children,
Because we are the world,
You gave us hope, when all hope was lost,
You opened our eyes, when we couldn't see,
Now we are always here waiting for you.
You gave us strength, when we weren't strong,
You are our friend, hero and king,
We will never let you part,
For you are always in our hearts,
Michael, you are with God now and you will always be an inspiration to our lives,
We will never say goodbye.
