Linkin Park - In The End Lyrics

(It starts with)
One thing / I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It’s so unreal
Didn’t look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on / but didn’t even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
One thing / I don’t know why
It doesn’t even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I’m surprised it got so (far)
Things aren’t the way they were before
You wouldn’t even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I’ve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
I’ve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There’s only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn’t even matter

Linkin Park - In The End Song Info

“In the End” is their highest charting single in most countries. It is widely regarded as their most famous song, and the one which best describes their musical style (a melodic interplay between Chester Bennington’s singing/yelling and Mike Shinoda’s rapping).

This song is mainly based on one person’s failure. It is considered symbolic of an ending relationship. It is also about wasting time on such a relationship - that “time is a valuable thing.”

The music video takes place in a fantasy setting and uses massive CGI animation. The band performs atop a giant statue, which has a ‘winged soldier’ on top of it, which is similar looking to the ‘winged soldier’ on the cover artwork of Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory album. The tower itself is in the shape of a woman, and appears to be the left-out portion of the cover of Hybrid Theory EP.

The video was co-directed by Nathan “Karma” Cox and LP’s turntablist Joe Hahn (who have also directed the videos for “Pts.Of.Athrty”, “Papercut”, “What I’ve Done”, “Bleed It Out”, and “Shadow of the Day”). The production design was by Patrick Tatopoulos who helped design and oversee the production of the non-CGI set. It won the “Best Rock Video” at the 2002 MTV Awards.
