Pred izidom zbirke skladb ob 20. obletnici albuma ‘Hybrid Theory’, ki bo izšla še ta mesec, je zasedba Linkin Park oboževalcem ponudila kratek predogled pričakovane retrospektive. Zasedba je namreč že objavila demo verzijo izjemno popularne skladbe ‘In The End’, ki ponuja povsem drugačno besedilo Mikea Shinode. “Prišel sem z idejo klavirja in glasbo ter besedilom refrena. Nato je Brad Delson (kitara) dodal kitare in delali smo na basu in skladbi. Nato so vsi v bendu začeli dodajati svoje dele ter kritizirati dele drugih. In tik preden smo šli v studio, da bi ga posneli, smo zamenjali ritem, ki sem ga sprva napisal in Rob (Bourdon, bobni) je naredil novega, ki smo ga nato posneli,” je nastajanje skladbe ‘In The End’ opisal Mike Shinoda.

Videu dodajamo še “delovno” besedilo, ki se je v dokončni verziji nekoliko spremenilo:

It starts with one…

One, then multiplies ’til you can taste the sun
And burned by the sky you try to take it from
But if it falls, there’s no place to run
Crumbling down, it’s so unreal
They’re dealing you in to determine your end
And sending you back again, to places you’ve been
And bending your will ’til it breaks you, within
And still, they fill their eyes
With the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad with the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it’s seeming that you’ve played your part
Like you’re heartless, take apart this
In the darkness, but I know that I’ve tried so hard

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 looked down the line
And what’s there is not what ought to be
Held back by the battles they fought for me
Calling me to be part of their property
And now, I see that I get no chance
I get no break
Fakes and snakes quickly lead to mistakes
And as the tightrope within slowly starts to thin
I can only hope that they close their eyes
To the twilight through the skylight
And the highlights on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad to the way I feel
Hear the screaming in my dreaming
As it’s seeming that you’ve played your part
Like you’re heartless, take apart this
In the darkness, but I know that I tried so hard

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’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
