Linkin Park sings about Writing, Publishing

(Not really, but this song’s been my personal anthem/cattleprod, so y’all get to see it.)

I am not
a pattern to be followed.
The pill that I’m on
is a tough one to swallow.

I’m not a criminal
not a role model.
Not a born leader
I’m a tough act to follow.

I am not
the fortune and the fame.
Nor the same person telling you
to forfeit the game.

I came in the ring
like a dog on a chain.
And I found out the underbelly’s
sicker than it seems.

And it seems ugly.
But it can get worse.
‘Cause even a blueprint
is a gift and a curse.

‘Cause once you got a theory
of how the thing works
Everybody wants the next thing
to be just like the first.

And I’m not a robot.
I’m not a monkey.
I will not dance
even if the beat’s funky.

Opposite of lazy
far from a punk
Ya’ll ought to stop talking
start trying to catch up, motherfucker.

-Linkin Park, When they Come for Me

No commentary today; I’ve got a lot of work to do.

Still, a question: A Thousand Suns has been my touchstone album this November. How about you?
