Download To Donate Press and Lyrics

January 20, 2010

Lots of good press about the Download To Donate project…don’t forget to EMBED THE WIDGET on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.!

The Lupe/Kenna track also hit Hype Machine this morning.  Do me a favor: go here and push the heart button next to the track: http://hypem.com/#/track/1017817/Lupe+Fiasco+Kenna+-+Resurrection

Also, I figured you guys might want the “official” lyrics to “Not Alone.”

NOT ALONE by Linkin Park

I break down / fear is sinking in
The cold comes / racing through my skin
Searching for / a way to get to you
through the storm

you
go / giving up your home
go / leaving all you’ve known
You are not alone

With arms up / stretched into the sky
With eyes like / echoes in the night
Hiding from / the hell that you’ve been through
Silent one

you
go / giving up your home
go / leaving all you’ve known
you
go / giving up your home
go / leaving all you’ve known
You are not alone

you
go / giving up your home
go / leaving all you’ve known
you
go / giving up your home
go / you are not unknown
You are not alone
You are not unknown
You are not alone

mike

    Hey everyone !:D Dunno if any of you really read this, but worth a try. LINKIN PARK MUST COME TO NORWAY! You’ve had a couple in Sweden, but 50 % of them got cancelled, and we want to see you in Norway!!

    Hey Mike, and Chester and everyone else if the band reads this. Thanks for posting the full lyrics, the video on youtube that I saw didn’t have them:/. Soooo exited for any future records, I love your music. By the way, have you guys ever considered doing a concert in Portland, Maine? A lot of my friends are fans, and it would be great to see you guys live!
    Good luck on any future projects, tell the band I said hello😀

    Hey Mike! What’s the deal with Make Tomorrow Today being replaced with Heroes? Luckily I downloaded before it was taken out but it’s a great song. Just wondering. Thanks.

  5. Bobby Solanki on January 29, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Hey!

    This is a record a made for the people of Haiti.

    I appreciate your time.

  6. Widya Rahayu on January 26, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    i drew something inspired by ‘Not Alone’. i really hope you can at least see it, Mike… http://widyarahayu.deviantart.com/art/a-way-to-get-to-you-151670436 (hope you don’t mind i used a part of the lyrics as the title of the drawing, i’ve wrote the lyrics there too).

  7. Lucas Maffra on January 26, 2010 at 8:42 am

    Mike thanks for the lyrics!…when are you going to do a show here in Brazil?…Can be a Linkin Park or Fort Minor Show we fans from Brazil will love it…

  8. TerryBolger on January 25, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Thank you guys for such an initiative. It’s great to see there are real humanitarians in this world.
    But frankly speaking it’s difficult to calculate who gets more benefits: Haiti because of inspirited by the Music for Relief action or the artists who created this album and got a low cost promotion campaign playing on best people qualities.
    I admire the way you can bind humanity and commerce for a greater common good. Really.

    Love the song. Love the fact that I can donate to a charity that I can trust. I set up the widget on my Facebook page. I hope it has the effect I want it to. Keep up the hard work. Love ya, Mike.

  29. MShuk on January 20, 2010 at 4:37 pm

    Mike, I saw the video that was posted on MTV and I think its great that you guys are letting people have the choice of donating. I’m trying to spread the word at my university and I know that loads of people want to help, but not everyone can. Its great that you guys have faith in your supporters, and supporters of these artists, that they will give to the people of Haiti. Thanks for providing us with a creative and encouraging way to give to the people who need us the most right now.

  30. ThE BlaCK HaWK on January 20, 2010 at 4:10 pm

  34. Michael Gonzalez on January 20, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Hey Mike, I donated a little bit and downloaded the song, which is awesome by the way. I am going to continue donating as much as I can as the weeks go by. You and the band are the most inspiring people on the planet and if I could I would join with you guys and help raise money. Stoked for the new game and album! Take care!

    -Mike

  37. Angi L on January 20, 2010 at 3:00 pm

    Rooting for you~ Rooting for Linkin Park~ Rooting for MFR~ Mike, I say from my heart, what you are doing now is really great!…….The hair thing is not important at all, do whatever you like with it!

  38. Sotiria ( LPrnway) on January 20, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    aww,thatnks for the lyrics Mike!🙂

  39. ThE BlaCK HaWK on January 20, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    Hey Mike, great song, and great job helping Haitian people…
    But I was wondering why you were not singing or rapping on this one…It really lacked your voice, I’ve heard this from many others too!
    And I heard something really impressive: children from Gaza have also sent some of their toys & clothes for Haitian children! I don’t know if you’ve heard anything about conditions of people in Gaza, but they are in a dramatic situation already, in a lack of food & endangered by Israeli army! This one truly made me think…

  40. LP_Ewelina on January 20, 2010 at 2:48 pm

    Thank you so much for the lyrics!!!! And links too!!!!

    And Mike, don’t listen to anyone! Your hair’s AWESOME!!!!! REALLY!!!🙂

  41. Lukas on January 20, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    yesss the lyrics.. i was looking for them thanks mike! you guys are fucking hero’s seriously….. hope that more artist join this and help….

  42. Evan Etheridge on January 20, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    Is there any way unsigned artists can contribute a track or tracks to the album to help raise money?

  43. JanV on January 20, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    Hey Mike!
    Thanks for the lyrics! That’s really considerate of you🙂
    Hey, guess what! I had a DREAM about you last night. In the dream, you and I were running a marathon together, and I take a break for a while due to exhaustion. Meanwhile, somebody manages to kidnap you and later call me up to give me clues to the location where you’re being held. Sadly, I woke up before I could finish rescuing you.😦

  44. Mr. Hun on January 20, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    hey thanks for the original lyrics!!! awesome job on the song!!!

  45. domxho on January 20, 2010 at 1:39 pm

    Great lyrics for such a short notice!!

  46. baraquito on January 20, 2010 at 1:25 pm

  51. Joana Tiholova on January 20, 2010 at 12:53 pm

    Thanks very much, Mike! Rob has birthday today, isn`t he? If he has – Happy Birthday to him from me. =) If he hasn`t – sorry for my mistake. Maybe I didn`t have to post this here, but I didn`t know where to post it. (Sorry if I have mistakes in my English or somewhere)

  52. Ana. on January 20, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    Hi, Mike.
    Today is the 20th of January, so I have small request to You.
    Please, tell to Rob –‘Happy birthday, many presents, good luck, and many many health!’- and hug he from me.🙂 Please, do it. ;))

    PS. I very like art. Hmm… I love art, but I haven’t vein (already month)… :((
    What do You do, when You don’t have vein?

    Thanks for the lyrics.

  53. Pr3mium on January 20, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    I figured out the lyrics on my own and already knew them. 😄
    I only had trouble with one thing and thought it said “atco’s in the night” when it’s “echo’s in the night”.

    I love Resurrection, and Never Let Me Down. Not Alone is a great song for this occasion, but otherwise it’s just decent.

    Keep us updated. 😀

  54. Leo on January 20, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Hey Mike!
    I just want to say, that you are such an adorable person.. It’s good to know, that out there are people like you, who care about people in need and I’ll support you! I donated all my pocketmoney.. it isn’t much but I hope it helps anyway some people, who need it more than me! You are a wonderful person, mike.. although you are a busy man and you are my biggest idol and I think if we would have more people like you, the world would be a much better place! Thank you so much for being so dedicated! Greets from Germany.. hope you visit us this year again! ;D
    ♥ U! Leo

  55. Chufties on January 20, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    You and the whole band should be really proud of all you’re doing. The fans are!

    And for a few listens i did think that Chester was saying ‘you are not a gnome’, so it’s good to have some official lyrics to clear that up. Keep up the good work.

  56. LinkinParkina on January 20, 2010 at 12:18 pm

    yea thanks a lot but I don’t understand one thing. in all the videos we see u are so happy with all ur lips widened across your face but how come u write such amazing and touching lyrics,Mike? seems like they are spontaneous obviously. there’s a quote “the people who laugh the most cries in the inside the most” I can’t make it with you but ur songs actually made my thoughts appear into words. you know sometimes u can’t put something true into words because u think that when u put it Into words u somehow admit that it’s true. when I listen to ur songs I admit it’s the way I feel and go sorry for myself. I don’t understand how u do this. but I can’t help not listening to u. i don’t know if ur ever gonna read this thing but I just want to know one more thing. don’t u feel like it’s unfair when people whom u don’t know if they exist or not know every thing about u (at least the things we r supposed to know)? and don’t u feel alone even ur surrounded with thousands?
    I’m just a stupid fan. and love u❤ thanks a lot for everything.!!!!!!

  57. Madlen on January 20, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    Thank you for the lyrics…I read a lot of articles about the project today…people are really getting involved which is great:)

  58. Teo on January 20, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    Donated and download tracks. These days i’ll donate something more. Thanks Mike.

  59. EvoOba_ on January 20, 2010 at 12:05 pm
