High Voltage is the fifth track on the Hybrid Theory EP. It is one of the more rap-orientated songs on the album (similar to Step Up), but lacks the energy that is featured in Step Up. Unlike the other tracks on the album, the lyrics in High Voltage are arguably the most easy to understand. This is because the song features very mellow guitar playing from Brad Delson. There are two remixes of this song.

LyricsEdit

Just do something to tell you who I am, you know

(It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out)

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

I've been diggin' into crates ever since I was livin' in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
Mastered numerology and Big Bang theology
Performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology

Invented the mic so I could start blessin' it
And chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us
But I twist mic cords to double helixes
And show them what I'm made of

I buckle knees like leg braces
Cast a spell of instrumentalness on all of the emcees that hate us
So try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity, let icons be bygones

I fire bomb, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats but moved onto a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
(Mix Media)
Stamp of approval that's on this

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

Akira, I put a kink in the backbones of clones with microphones
Never satisfy my rhyme jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say
Blood-type Krylon, Technicolor type A

On highways write with road rage
On pages of wind in cages of tin that bounce all around
Surround sound, devouring the scene
Subliminal gangrene paintings, overall the same things

Sing song karaoke copy madness
Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention (Attention)

Meant to put you away, with the pencil
Pistol, official, sixteen line, rhyme missile
While you risk your all, I pick out all your flaws
Spittin' rah, blah, blah, blah, you can say you saw

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

(High voltage
High voltage
High voltage
High voltage)

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out

It's high voltage
You can't shake the shock
Because nobody wants it to stop
Check it out
