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
Because 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 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 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
(When put against you, I cant win)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to give in to fate seems senseless
If I hide my pride and lie sleepless
I wont be able to cope with my weakness
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)
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 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
(When put against you i can't win)
With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think that I've lost so much
I'm always afraid that I'm now out of touch
How do you expect that 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
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

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
(When put against you, I can't win)
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
(when put against me, i can't win)
With thoughts of failure from with...

    General CommentGreat song. I do like it. I wonder, was this done while they were Hybrid Theory, or while they were Xero? Or is this an actual LP song? Could someone clarify?

    General Commentxero only did four songs. this is a demo that lp did when they were hybrid theory, it was on a very early demo tape that also had esaul (a place for my head demo) on it, that was sent around to record labels.

    General CommentMike Shinoda and Chester are singing in this song. Hm, I like the lyrics from this song better than "By Myself" but the way this song sounds... it just sounds better on "By Myself"

    General CommentHmm this song is originally writen by Mark Wakefield I think. But he's not the vocalist on it, like in the Rhinestone, reading my eyes, and Stick n' Move tracks.

    So yeah, it is Chester. Though Mark and Chester sound alot alike.
