Linkin Park – Powerless lyrics

You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
You woke the devil that I thought you'd left behind
I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

And you held it all. But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all, and I was by your side
Powerless

I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
I'm left with emptiness that words can not defend
You'll never know what I became because of you
Ten thousand promises, ten thousand ways to lose

And you held it all, but you were careless to let it fall
You held it all, and I was by your side, powerless

And you held it all, but you were careless to let it fall
You held it all, and I was by your side, powerless

Powerless (x2)

    Personally I thought the meaning of this song was more like a relationship thing, like a man and a women were currently in a relationship then the women just let go one day "you held it all but you were careless to let it fall" and he was powerless to do anything about it and he's even says you'll never see what I've become because of you, personally that's just what I think.

    Arguments against the lyrics aside,.
    I think this song is about a man or woman who was very close to someone and told them their secrets, but that person didn; t do the same. And eventually a problem from that person's past that was kept secret came back and ended badly for that person. And that person likely died, while their friend stood by powerless to help them.
    This makes me think of my cousin. Who had been sick for a while and the family told to go to the doctor but she refused. Months later she got really sick and turned out to have liver cancer. She died in 2008 and our whole family sat by unable to do anything to help her and just sat by powerless.
