Linkin Park – One Step Closer lyrics
[Verse]
I cannot take this anymore
Saying everything I said before
All these words, they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear, the less you say
You'll find that out anyway

Just like before...

[Chorus]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

[Verse 2]
I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts, they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again

Just like before...

[Chorus]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to... break!

[Hook]
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
Shut up when I'm talking to you!
Shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
I'm about to break!

[Chorus]
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
I'm about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
'Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to... break!
