Song lyrics
I watch how the moon sits in the sky in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon assuming
The moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me you do
Favors and then rapidly you just
Turn around and start asking me about
Things you want back from me
I'm sick of the tension
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

Maybe someday I'll be just like you and
Step on people like you do
And run away all the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm used to be strong
Used to be generous but you should've known that you'd
Wear out your welcome now you see
How quiet it is all alone I'm so
Sick of the tension sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest I'm so
Sick of the tension sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away

You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away
You try to take the best of me, Go away

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
You'll see it's not meant to be
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

STAY..... A..... WAY..

I am so sick of the tension [STAY]
Sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this [A..]
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest [WAY]
I'm so sick of the tension sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
[STAY AWAY FROM ME]
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

Great song. One of the few songs (well, almost all of their songs, but few other artists) I can not listen to for a few months but still remember the lyrics word for word the next time I hear it.

I love the intro the most.

this song is good i like the
[i]GO AWAY GO! TRY AND TAKE THE BEST OF ME!!!![i]
part at te ent 10/10


lyrics:

watch how the moon sits in the sky
On a dark night shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon
Assuming the moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me about
Things you want back from me

Pre chorus:
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you don't understand
(You'll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday I'll be just like you, and
Step on people like you do and
Run away the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm, used to be strong
Used to be generous, but you should've known
That you'd wear out your welcome
Now you see how quiet it is, all alone

Pre chorus (2x)
Chorus

You try to take the best of me
Go away (8x)

Awesome song. For some reason, the LP songs i listen to are depressing yet a bit cheering in a queer way including this one. I enjoy the rapping.

I agree completely with everyone about the live in texas version of this song. Chester seems to morph into some hell beast when he's screaming it sends my blood cold its so unreal. Linkin Park never cease 2 amaze me they truely are one of the greatest bands of all time, there's not one song of theirs that i dont love and their d.v.d's are all wikid aswell. Cmon guys and bring sum more new stuff out!!!!!

excellent song. it had the perfect rythm, the perfect beat, the perfect sound, the perfect lyrics.

then came the ending...it's as if LP got lazy at the end (I am so sick of the tension...that part). they totally destroyed the perfect ending. they got rid of the beat!!! and that is why i like the remix better.

I love this song very much. It's one of my favorite out of all of their songs.

I particularily like when chester's whispering, and you can hear emotion in his voice
