I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me?
Holding too tightly, afraid to lose control
'Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know I may end up failing too
But I know you were just like me with someone disappointed in you

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
I'm tired of being what you want me to be

    General CommentFirst of all, i hate linkin park. I plan to make this constructive argument. I remember sitting in the car over the summer and listening to songs like "breaking the habit" and such. No other songs have annoyed the hell out of me as much as linkin park songs. All they do is whine. I tell my emotions to go to hell. THey dwell on stupid subjects abouyt how they had a hard child hood and their lyrics have no depth. You want good music try looking up Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. First of all, those bands have guitarists that actually play guitar and dont spend 4 minutes playing the same stupid riff (breaking the habit). I can right lyrics like linkin park does

    oh im sad
    when i was 5
    my ball popped
    it was red
    and for all time
    just like i said
    ill never be ok
    feel sorry for me

    If you stand back and look at their music its horrible and its for people that have no concept of good music. Also now linkin park i hate even more cuz they combine rap like lyrics with guitars. I play guitar and i play in a band and we play REAL music with REAL lyrics. Its an insult when somebody picks up a guitar and starts whining in a stacato tone. You can say that i have no life for dissing people that like linkin park but im trying to help you people. DO yourselves a favor AND LISTEN TO SOME REAL MUSIC
