Papercut
Linkin Park
Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here?s not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia?s all I got left
I don?t know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed/but
I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It?s like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakens when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I fall
A face that laughs every time I fall
[And watches everything]
So I don?t know that when it?s time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me/right underneath my skin

It?s like I?m paranoid lookin? over my back
It?s like a/whirlwind inside of my head
It?s like I/can?t stop what I?m hearing within
It?s like the face inside is right beneath my skin

I know I?ve got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me
You?ve got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia?s probably worse
I don?t know what set me off first but I know what I can?t stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I can?t add up to what you can
But everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakens when they close their eyes
A face that watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
[And watches everything]
So you know that when it?s time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too/right inside your skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
