[Mike - Talking]
"The dude, he said that, like, when we were making the first Linkin Park record
He was like,
'Yeah you know, I don't know about the rapping like, I don't know if it's... maybe you should just be a rock band.'
You know what I mean, like, trying to change us,
Like they signed us as an act, like what we sound like, and then he's like
'Oh I don't know maybe you should just play keyboard'."

[Verse 1 - Mike]
Before the first song that you heard me on,
There were people already tryin' to get me gone,
Tellin' me to quit rapping, just play the keys, that
"My band had a singer", "They didn't need me",
But my band had my back,
So we did the tracks, put out the album,
And the talk went flat,
It was funny at first, but then the humour faded,
When some magazines printed that our label made us,
We were to be good to be true,
Some were saying ghost writers were writin' all that we do,
So we had to disprove it, we spelled it out,
To the detail, how we do it, when we're making this music,
After that I made it a rule:
I only do e-mail responses to print interviews,
Because these people love to put a twist to your words,
To infer that you said something fucking absurd.
Oh, did I lose you at 'infer'?
Not used to hearing a verse that uses over first grade vocabulary words?
People used to 'infer' that we were manufactured,
Now I've got the interviews on file,
Which people said what, which number to dial,
So now every enemy screaming insanity,
All they're ever gonna be's another big fan of me, (Bitch!)

[Outro - Mike and Tak Talking]
"Can you believe that? Like that's crazy,
It sounds crazy right, like this point,
At this point you're hear that you're like,
'That out of his mind!', But honestly at that point...
Like besides the fact he wanted me to just play keyboards or whatever,
Didn't want me to rap..he was like 'Maybe Joe Hahn..should, um...wear a lab coat, and a cowboy hat on stage',
Like when we play? ('yo?!')
I swear to god he was crazy!
('So a cowboy hat?!')
Yeah, and later on he claimed he wrote all our songs,
So yeah..that was..that was really nice."
