Battle Symphony - Linkin Park




The Experience: I'm waiting for it, that green light, I want it... Hope that someone better is out there, even as you sort through the ruins of your last relationship...


Music video: In the lyric video, he and her are both struggling towards each other. Along paved roads and rocky ruins, mountains and deserts and forests, towards the happiness of being together. The Battle Symphony that keeps them moving is each other - they both appear every time the refrain plays.

The Meaning of Battle Symphony: The song starts in a bad place. The future is hard - I got a long way to go. The past is hard - and a long memory. The present is hard - blood on the floor. Answers? Still to be found. But the key to it all is what you're fighting for. Symphony is the meaning that turns random notes and sounds into a powerful, peaceful, organized harmony. In Battle Symphony, even the hard moments of your life - when they turn down the lights - have meaning. It won't be a defeat, and it won't be lonesome if you have someone who believes in you, someone who's voice is consolation and support - the pain in reverse.

Ask yourself: What is the meaning that turns your battle into a symphony?

Album: One More Light (2017)

LYRICS:

I got a long way to go
And a long memory
I've been searching for an answer
Always just out of reach
Blood on the floor
Sirens repeat
I've been searching for the courage
To face my enemies

When they turn down the lights

I hear my battle symphony
All the world in front of me
If my armor breaks
I'll fuse it back together
Battle symphony
Please just don't give up on me
And my eyes are wide awake

For my battle symphony
For my battle symphony

They say that I don't belong
They say that I should retreat
That I'm marching to the rhythm
Of a lonesome defeat
But the sound of your voice
Is the pain in reverse
No surrender, no illusions
And for better or worse

When they turn down the lights

I hear my battle symphony
All the world in front of me
If my armor breaks
I'll fuse it back together
Battle symphony
Please just don't give up on me
And my eyes are wide awake

If I fall, get knocked down
Pick myself up off the ground
If I fall, get knocked down
Pick myself up off the ground

When they turn down the lights

I hear my battle symphony
All the world in front of me
If my armor breaks
I'll fuse it back together
Battle symphony
Please just don't give up on me
And my eyes are wide awake

For my battle symphony
For my battle symphony
