"Linkin Park singles chronology

"Pushing Me Away" is the final song on Linkin Park's 2000 debut album, Hybrid Theory.

In 2002, a remix of the song titled P5hng Me A*wy was included on Linkin Park's remix album, Reanimation. After Reanimation was released, the band stopped playing the original Hybrid Theory version at their live shows, instead playing the Reanimation version of the song from 2002 to 2005.

In 2006, the band composed a new version of the song with Mike playing keyboards and Chester singing. The "piano version" includes no rapping, guitar, bass, drums or samples. Therefore, the only members on stage when it is played live are Mike and Chester. The piano verson was first played live in Sendai, Japan at the 2006 Summer Sonic Festival. The live recording was also included on the band's LPU 6 CD released in December 2006 for the Linkin Park Underground.


Trivia Edit

  • Despite being called "Pushing Me Away" in the song it says 'Pushes Me Away.'

LyricsEdit

I've lied / to you
The same way that I always do
This is / the last smile
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you

[Everything falls apart / even the people who never frown / eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[Everything has to end / you'll soon find we're out of time left
To watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

I've tried / like you
To do everything you wanted to
This is / the last time
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you

[Everything falls apart / even the people who never frown / eventually break down]
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
[Everything has to end / you'll soon find we're out of time left
To watch it all unwind]
The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

(We're all out of time / this is how it all unwind)
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie... (We're all out of time / this is how it all unwind) The sacrifice is never knowing

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Pushes me away...
