"Lying from You" is a song by American rock band Linkin Park, released on March 16, 2004. It was released as an airplay-only single from their second album, Meteora, which was released on March 25, 2003.

Song information[edit]

The song opens up with a viola-influenced keyboard sample that leads into it being looped throughout certain verses. It also contains a sample of a car burning out. The song was one of seven Linkin Park songs used in the collaboration between the band and rapper Jay-Z ("Dirt off Your Shoulder/Lying from You") on the mash-up album Collision Course released in November 2004.

In live shows of 2008, "Lying from You" used a new intro, removing all samples from the intro and first half of the first verse.
