The news of Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington’s death was a shock to the whole world and especially his fans. People could not believe how such a successful singer can kill himself. We still can’t believe that he committed suicide at 41 and left us all alone crying behind. If you keep all these things aside and concentrate on his songs and lyrics, you will realize that he always felt those songs and his lyrics were straight out from his heart which make sense now. If you are a fan of music and emotion that people put in it, you will know how deep a music always is. It expresses your various emotions and there are some people like to express via songs than telling it to people. Chester’s songs have helped a lot of people to be mentally strong but the one who wrote them, couldn’t help himself. And now, when we look back to his songs, they all make sense.

Here is how his songs totally make sense after all these years. 

1. Crawling

“Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self-control I fear is never ending
Controlling
I can’t seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I’m convinced
That there’s just too much pressure to take)
I’ve felt this way before
So insecure…”

2. Numb

“I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
I don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
By becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you”

3. In The End

“It starts with one thing
I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away”

I fell in love with Chester Bennington after this song.
