Wake in a sweat again
Another day's been laid to waste
In my disgrace
Stuck in my head again
Feels like I'll never leave this place
There's no escape
I'm my own worst enemy

[Chorus]
I've given up
I'm sick of feeling!
Is there nothing you can say?
Take this all away
I'm suffocating!
Tell me what the fuck is wrong with me!

I don't know what to take
Thought I was focused, but I'm scared
I'm not prepared
I hyperventilate
Looking for help somehow, somewhere
And no one cares
I'm my own worst enemy

[Chorus]

God!

Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my misery
Put me out of my...
Put me out of my fucking misery!

[Chorus]

    General CommentWow... is this what Linkin Park has been reduced to? This is absolute shit. "I'm my own worst enemy" ?? Are you KIDDING ME? I heard that line and I literally cringed. And whats with the sudden need to swear on every track? Hybrid Theory was an amazing album and had no swearing at all. Swearing = a sign of the band running out of words and trying the whole "shock" routine. Lame. This whole CD, bar like 3 songs, sucks the big one.
