CompositionEdit

Wastelands features heavy drum and bass, a catchy chorus and a heavy breakdown in the middle. The song will go on hand for Mike Shinoda's hip-hop sideproject "Fort Minor" fans as Mike Shinoda lays down a great rhyme pattern on top of the drum beat and distorted guitar riffs, followed by the chorus with it's lyrics themed around a post-apocalyptic scenario. It's outro continues to the next album track "Until It's Gone.

Lyrics​Edit

This is war with no weapons
Marching with no stepping
Murder with no killing
Illin' every direction
First, no sequel, do the math
No equal
John with no Yoko:
No power less people
And no, I'm not afraid of that
Print in your paperback
Every rap is made in fact
To act as a delayed attack
Every phrase a razor blade
That's saved until they play it back
Slay 'em, leave 'em laying on the pavement
Bang
Fade to black

In the wastelands of today
When there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
Where tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today

Roll credits, get it, the show is done
They're talking for just talking
But meaning they got none
None of 'em come proper
They talk like a shotgun
But how many got bred with integrity?
Not one
So no
I'm not afraid to see
You suckers hold a blade to me
Ain't a way to shake the ground
I built before you came to be
Take it how you take it
I'm the opposite of vacancy
And this is not negotiation
Y'all can hate and wait to see

In the wastelands of today
When there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
When tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear

And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today

In the wastelands of today
When there's nothing left to lose
And there's nothing more to take
But you force yourself to choose
In the wastelands of today
When tomorrow disappears
While the future slips away
And your hope turns into fear

And your hope turns into fear
In the wastelands of today
In the wastelands of today
In the wastelands of today
