My good friend told me yesterday that Chester Bennington died the other day. I was very disappointed when he told me. I woke up today and played through Meteora and surprised myself when I started crying. I hadn’t heard the album in its entirety in at least 5 years and It brought back a fresh wave of emotions I had forgot about. First a small sniffle, and then as Faint came on a wave hit me and before I knew it tears bubbling up and I erupted into sobs. That song was my mantra. I am a completely different person than I was back then largely because I had Linkin Park by my side. I recited each song from memory like old friends I’d missed. They were the words I belted out at 3am in my bedroom. I wrote them on my binder and scrolled them on my clothes. And I just want to take this moment to say thank you Chester. Thank you for putting into words the emotions I was to young to understand. Thank you for being my voice of anger screaming when I couldn’t. Thank you for building a generation of fighters. And even though you couldn’t save yourself, I hope you knew you rescued so many others.
i used to be a little boy, so old in my shoes. and what i choose is my choice, what’s a boy supposed to do? the killer in me is the killer in you, my love. i send a smile over to you, the killer in me is the killer in you, i send a smile over to you…

When this world is no more, the moon is all we’ll see. I’ll ask you to fly away with me. Until the stars all fall down, they empty from the sky. But I don’t mind, if you’re with me, then everything’s alright.
