Linkin Park Step Up/Nobody's Listening/Its Goin Down Live

At Rock Am Ring 2004



[STEP UP]

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up


Watch as the room rocks
Mentally moonwalk
Mixed media slang
Banging in your boom box verbal violence
Lyrical stylist
In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
You cant tempt me with rhymes that are empty
Rapping to a beat doesnt make you an MC
With your lack of skill and facility
Youre killing me
And a DJ in the group just for credibility
I heard that some of you are getting help with your rhymes
Youre not an emcee if someone else writes your lines
And rapping over rock doesnt make you a pioneer
Cause rock and hip hop have collaborated for years
But now theyre getting randomly mixed and matched up
All after a fast buck and all the tracks suck
So how does it stack up? None of its real
You want to be an emcee youve got to study the skill

Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Bring it to you every time like this?
Who can rock a rhyme like this?
Step, step up, step, step up

[Nobody's Listening]

Yo, peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is how could you ignore it
We drop right back in the cut over basement tracks
With raps that got you backing this up like
Rewind that we're just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics of life living
Not to be forgotten but still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who wanna talk this and that
So I suppose that it gets to a point where feelings gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt

it goes

[Chorus]
(Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me)
Told you everything loud and clear
(But nobodys listening)
(Called to you so clearly but you dont want to hear me)
Told you everything loud and clear
(But nobodys listening)

[ITS GOIN DOWN]

When I say its goin you say down its goin DOWN its goin DOWN

When I say its goin you say down its goin DOWN its goin DOWN

When I say its goin you say down its goin DOWN its goin DOWN

When I say its goin everybody down its goin DOWN its goin DOWN

[Verse 1]
It's going down
The rhythm projects 'round the next sound
Reflects the complex hybrid dialect now
Detects the mesh of many elements compressed down
The melting pot of a super-futuresque style
The combination of vocal caress
With lungs the gasp for breath
From emotional stress
With special effects
And a distorted collage
Carefully lodged between beats of rhythmic barrage

[Pre-chrus x2:]
It's going down
The logical progression on the timeline
The seperation narrowed down to a fine line
To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Take you on an audible odyssey
Now it's going down
A logical progression on the timeline
The seperation narrowed down to a fine line
To blur the edges so they blend together properly
Take you on an audible odyssey
Now it's going down

[Chorus]
Put it out for the world to see
LP and X-Men to the 10th degree (It's goin down)
Nobody in the world is safe
When we melt down the wax in your record crate (It's going down)
