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 fa?ade 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
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]
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
