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 into sad thoughts that are maddening?

Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Or do I try to catch 'em 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 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 look around
(It's too much to take in)
I can't hold back
(When I'm stretched so thin)

I can't slow down
(Watching everything spin)
I can't look back
(Starting over again)

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 'til everything is gone

If I let them go, I'll be outdone
But if I try to catch 'em 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 look around
It's too much to take in
I can't hold back
When I'm stretched so thin

I can't slow down
Watching everything spin
I can't look back
Starting over again

Don't you
Don't you
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, 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, 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
