Linkin Park - By Myself

What do I do to ignore them behind me?

Do I follow my instincts blindly?

Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams

And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?

Do I sit here and try to stand it?

Or do I try to catch them red-handed?

Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness

Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?

 

Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin

I make the right moves but I'm lost within

I put on my daily facade but then

I just end up getting hurt again

By myself (myself)

I ask why, but in my mind I find

I can't rely on myself (myself)

I ask why, but in my mind I find

I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin

It's all too much to take in

I can't hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I Turn my back I'm defenseless

And to go blindly seems senseless

If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll

Take from me till everything is gone

If I let them go I'll be outdone

But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun

If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer

Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

By myself (myself)

I ask why, but in my mind I find

I can't rely on myself (myself)

I ask why, but in my mind I find

I can't rely on myself

I can't hold on

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin

It's all too much to take in

I can't hold on

To anything watching everything spin

With thoughts of failure sinking in

 

How do you think I've lost so much

 

I'm so afraid I'm out of touch

 

How do you expect I will know what to do

 

When all I know is what you tell me to

 

Don't you know

I can't tell you how to make it go

No matter what I do how hard I try

I can't seem to convince myself why

I'm stuck on the outside

Don't you know

I can't tell you how to make it go

No matter what I do how hard I try

I can't seem to convince myself why

I'm stuck on the outside

I can't hold on

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin

It's all too much to take in

I can't hold on

To anything watching everything spin

 

With thoughts of failure sinking in

I can't hold on

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin

It's all too much to take in

I can't hold on

To anything watching everything spin

 

With thoughts of failure sinking in
