"High Voltage (Remix)"
One Step Closer
Song by Linkin Park
from the album One Step Closer
Released 2002
Genre Alternative
Length 3:41
Label Warner Bros. Records
Writer Linkin Park
Producer Mike Shinoda

High Voltage is the third track on the One Step Closer single. It is a remixed version of the original High Voltage which was featured on their Hybrid Theory EP. This remix version was revised for the Hybrid Theory album, and although it was supposed to be the twelfth track on that album, it ended up being cut from the final track listing (although it did appear as a bonus track on the 2002 special edition.) This version of the song has a significantly different chorus compared to the original. Other than that, lyrically, it remained relatively unchanged. It was performed several times live on the Hybrid Theory touring cycle, but has failed to make an appearance on a live show since 2002. This is one of the two remixes of High Voltage, the other being featured on the remix album Reanimation.

LyricsEdit

You know what I mean?
You could put a label on a life,
Put a label on a lifestyle
(Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes)
You know
Put a label on how you wake up every morning
And go to bed at night
(Hybrid)

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

Invented the mic so I could start blessin' it
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 the spell of instrumentalness on all of you emcees who hate us
So, you can 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 on to a promise
I stomp sh- with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

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
My blood type's Krylon, Technicolor type A

On highways write with road rage
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 bullsh-
Break bones verbally with sticks and stone tactics
Fourth dimension, combat convention
Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention

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

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

And like the rock and rap
You know what I mean?
People're acting like you know
"Wow that’s a new invention"
That sh- ain't new
We're constantly evolving
It is constantly changing
(Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes
Sometimes, sometimes)
There's a lot of change
Everybody's always up with labels
There ain’t no label for this sh-
They're always gonna try to put a label on it
Try to create something
So they can water it down

Sometimes I feel like I'm toxic
Misunderstood, under the gun
Like a new disease

Sometimes I feel like I'm toxic
Misunderstood, under the gun
Like a new disease

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

High voltage
(This is the unforgettable sound)
High voltage
(Bringin' you up and takin' you down)
High voltage
(Comin' at you from every side)
High voltage
(Making the rhythm of rhyme collide)

You know what I mean?
You can put a label on a lifestyle
