At 9 AM this morning, Maynard gave you the world premiere of Linkin Park‘s new single, “Burn It Down”. If you missed it, you’ll hear it more throughout the day on HFS…or you can hear it now, right here.

The lyrics, written by the band as a whole, are as follows:

The cycle repeated
as explosions broke in the sky
all that I needed
was the one thing I couldn’t find

And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know

We’re building it up
To break it back down
We’re building this up
To burn it down
We can’t wait
To burn it to the ground

The colors conflicted
as the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this / but
couldn’t stop from tearing it down

And you were caught at the turn
caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know

You told me yes / You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played that soldier / You played king
And struck me down when I kissed that ring
You lost that right / to hold that crown
I built you up but you let me down
so when you fall / I’ll take my turn
and fan the flames as your blazes burn
