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]

[x2]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

[Chorus:]

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]

[x2]

I ask why, but in my mind

I find I can’t rely on myself

[Chorus]

How do you think I’ve lost so much

I’m so afraid that 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

[x2]

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

[Chorus x2]
