Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-platinum in several other countries. Their following studio album Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200 album chart in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.

 The band continued to explore a wider variation of musical types in their fourth album A Thousand Suns (2010), layering their music with more electronic sounds and beats. Their most recent work Living Things (2012) combines musical elements from all of their previous records. The band has collaborated with several other artists.

Linkin Park has sold over 60 million albums worldwide and has won two Grammy Awards.

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 the novice glow
and drop me down to the dream below

'Cause I'm only a crack in this castle of glass
Hardly anything left 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 left for you to see
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 left for you to see
For you to see
For you to see

WARM ME UP=  Make me feel warm (=love me), because I am cold (= I need love).

"Castle of Glass" is one of the more darker songs on Living Things, using electronic elements from other songs on the album and from the band's previous studio album, A Thousand Suns.
The song also incorporates elements of country music, and is structurally a Folk rock song.

The music video shows a young boy being told that his father had died.The boy and his mother mourn the death as the sailor's teammates and their families try to comfort them. The band is shown playing with a storm where shattered pieces of glass circle the band. Towards the end the boy goes through his father's possessions, fast forwarding to him becoming a SEAL, like his father before him. At the end of the video we see the man telling a girl the heartbreaking news of her family member, as she too cries.
The video ends with a quote from Winston Churchill: All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope.
