By Myself - Linkin Park

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 no one 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

Pre chorus:
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 toomuch 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

Pre chorus


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(2x)
