By Myself (2-Track Demo Version 1999)

Verse 1Mike Shinoda

What do I do to ignore what's behind me?
Do I follow my fate to escape blindly?
Do I hide my pride away from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I let it go 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 none and live life in loneliness?
Cause sunlight burns the skin of sleeping men
I make the right turns but I'm lost within
I put on my daily facade but then
I just end up getting hurt again

Before chorusMike Shinoda and Chester Bennington

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 mysеlf

ChorusChester Bennington and Mike Shinoda

I can't hold on [To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
It's all too much to takе in
I can't hold on [To anything, watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

Verse 2Mike Shinoda

If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to give into fate 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 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

Before chorusMike Shinoda and Chester Bennington

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

ChorusChester Bennington and Mike Shinoda

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

InterludeMike Shinoda

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

BridgeMike Shinoda and Chester Bennington

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

ChorusChester Bennington and Mike Shinoda

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 from with-
