"In My Remains" (stylized as "IN MY REMAINS") is the second song on Linkin Park's album Living Things. Although the song was never released as a single, it did chart in several European countries, cracking the top 10 on the UK Rock charts and reaching number 83 on the German Singles charts.


During an interview for MTV First in June of 2012, Chester Bennington talked about how far the song progressed as they worked on it, stating "This song took a long time to finish too. It started off as this really simple song, and it came together quickly, but its progression froze for a while. It turned out to be this rocking, four-to-the-floor track with a big payoff."

Billboard said, ""In My Remains" stands as something of a breakthrough." "We would have stayed away from that kind of song two or three years ago," Mike explained.[2]

"In My Remains" was one of only two songs off of Living Things to not get an official remix, the other being "Tinfoil". During a Q&A about Recharged on Facebook, Mike Shinoda confirmed the band received a remix of "In My Remains" for the album but didn't like it enough to release. He wrote, "GREAT QUESTION. We actually didn't get a great remix of the song. We liked all these remixes a lot more...maybe that means we got it right on the original of IN MY REMAINS? HA"[3]


Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.

"In My Remains" was first performed at the private production rehearsal in Bristow for the Honda Civic Tour. Initially, "In My Remains" was performed only in Set C, after "New Divide". However, as the tour progressed, "In My Remains" was slowly added to all the sets. Starting in Dallas, "In My Remains" was added in place of "Lying From You" for Set A, and was added to Set B at Woodlands, dropping "Empty Spaces" and "When They Come For Me" to make room. It was performed acoustically at the 6th LPU Summit in Camden, which is the only time it's been performed in this manner. Starting at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas 2012 performance, and continuing into 2013, "In My Remains" was dropped in favor of "Castle Of Glass".

While not being performed in full, "In My Remains" does make a slight appearance during Mike's solo over the "Remember The Name" instrumental, where the intro synth is played over the top of it. However, once Mike's solo was dropped during the band's performance in Mexico City, the last surviving bit of "In My Remains" was also dropped.



Album Version

Sifting through the wreckage I can't concentrate
Searching for a message in the fear and pain
Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Come apart
Falling in the cracks of every broken heart
Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
Sinking down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Like an army
One by one by one [x4]
Now in my remains (One by one [x2])
Are promises that never came (One by one by one)
Set this silence free (One by one [x2])
To wash away the worst of me (One by one by one)

Like an army (One by one)
Falling (One by one)
One by one by one [x2]
