Chester Bennington of Linkin Park….Rest In Peace….We Love You

Chester Bennington of Linkin Park….Rest In Peace….We Love You

Castle of Glass – Written By Chester Bennington

This song is performed by Linkin Park; the music video is about war.  War is a “hot button” for me.   I was consumed with the message the song brought to the poignant video, but now that I know the tortured life Chester Bennington lived from age 7-13 at the hands of a male rapist, I see the song so very differently……my dear friend, Chester….I am deeply sorry…..you have been telling, shouting, pleading with us all for so very long.  May your soul find peace.

 

 

Take me down to the river bend

Take me down to the fighting end

Wash the poison from off my skin

Show me how to be whole again

Fly me up on a silver wing

Past the black where the sirens sing

Warm me up in a nova’s glow

And drop me down to the dream below

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass

Hardly anything there for you to see

For you to see

Bring me home in a blinding dream,

Through the secrets that I have seen

Wash the sorrow from off my skin

And show me how to be whole again

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass

Hardly anything there for you to see

For you to see

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass

Hardly anything else I need to be

‘Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass

Hardly anything there for you to see

For you to see

For you to see

Written by Chester Bennington

Performed by Linkin Park
