Meteora Tracklist

Hit the Floor

song by Linkin Park
from Meteora released in 2003 track #5
duration 02:44
There were just too many
Times people have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you
And I protect you out of courtesy

Too many times that I've held on
When I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind
Afraid to say what I need to say

Too many things that you said
About me when I'm not around
You think having the upper hand
Means you gotta keep putting me down

But I've had too many stand-offs with you
It's about as much as I can stand
So I'll wait until the upper hand is mine

One minute you're on top
The next you're not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won

And then it's all gone

So many people like me
Put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned of what you think
To just say what we feel inside

So many people like me
Walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want is to
Feel like I'm not stepped on

There are so many things you say that
Make me feel you've cross the line
What goes up will surely fall
And I'm counting down the time

Cause I've had so many stand-offs with you
Its about as much as I can stand
So I'm waiting until the upper hand is mine

One minute you're on top
The next you're not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won

And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
Now it's all gone

I know I'll never
Trust a single thing you say
You knew your lies would
Divide us but you lied anyway
And all the lies have got you
Floating up above us all
But what goes up is got to fall

One minute you're on top
The next you're not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute you're on top
The next you're not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won

And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
And then it's all gone
Now it's all gone
