Linkin Park – Castle Of Glass lyrics

Take me down to the river bend,
Take me down to the fighting end,
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again


Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova's glow
And drop me down to the dream below


[Chorus:]
Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see.
For you to see

Bring me home in a blinding dream
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again


[Chorus:]
Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see.
For you to see

[Bridge:]
Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything else I need to be

[Chorus:]
Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything there for you to see.
For you to see
For you to see

    I think this is about someone who just went through a traumatic event in their life and is asking a friend to help them get through it. It seems like the user puts themself down in a realistic depressing way by saying " im only a crack in this castle of glass" hinting they are a small and meaningless blemish on something much bigger and better. And the line " hardly anything left for you to see" may refer to how beaten and battered they are following the traumatic event.

    To me, and this might just be me, it seems as if someone was hurt, horribly. 'Poisoned' by how bad it hurts inside. Broken apart, into millions of pieces. Maybe it hurts so bad inside that it feels right to hurt outside as well. You know it's bad for you, but the 'sirens' sing out and call you back. You need someone, someone who understands, to help get past hurting yourself. Feels so small in the big picture of things. I'm especially pulled towards the line 'hardly anything there for you to see. ' There's barely anything left of the person you used to be. This song really relates to anyone who's ever experienced losing something precious to them. Anyone who feels insignificant, anyone who's in pain right now.
