Hybrid Theory

Papercut


Why does it feel like night today?
Something in hereís not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoiaís all I got left
I donít 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
Itís like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)
So I know that when itís time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me / right beneath my skin
Itís like Iím / paranoid lookiní over my back
Itís like a / whirlwind inside of my head
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
Itís like the face inside is right beneath my skin
I know Iíve got a face in me
points out all the mistakes to me
Youíve got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoiaís probably worse
I donít know what set me off first but I know what I canít stand
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is
I canít add up to what you can but
Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when they close their eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)
So you know that when itís time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too / right inside your skin
Itís like Iím / paranoid lookiní over my back
Itís like a / whirlwind inside of my head
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
Itís like the face inside is right beneath my skin

Itís like Iím / paranoid lookiní over my back
Itís like a / whirlwind inside of my head
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
Itís like the face inside is right beneath my skin

the face inside is right beneath my skin
the face inside is right beneath my skin
the face inside is right beneath my skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

The sun
Itís like Iím / paranoid lookiní over my back
Itís like a / whirlwind inside of my head
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
Itís like the face inside is right beneath my skin
I feel the light betray me

The sun
Itís like Iím / paranoid lookiní over my back
Itís like a / whirlwind inside of my head
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
I feel the light betray me
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within
Itís like I / canít stop what Iím hearing within

One Step Closer

I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
But you'll find that out anyway
Just like before...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

I find the answers aren't so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Nothing seems to go away
Over and over again
Just like before...

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Break break break break break

shut up when I'm talking to you
shut up shut up shut up
shut up when I'm talking to you
shut up shut up shut up shut up
Iím about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Break break break break break break

shut up when I'm talking to you
shut up shut up shut up
shut up when I'm talking to you
shut up shut up shut up shut up
Iím about to break

Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

With You

I woke up in a dream today
To the cold of the static and put my cold feet on the floor
Forgot all about yesterday
Remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not anymore
A little taste of hypocrisy
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react
Even though you're so close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back

It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me
I'm with you

You, now I see, keeping everything inside
with you
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes

I hit you and you hit me back
We fall to the floor the rest of the day stands still
Fine line between this and that
When things go wrong I pretend the past isn't real
I'm trapped in this memory
And I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react
So even though you're close to me
You're still so distant
And I can't bring you back

It's true the way I feel
Was promised by your face
The sound of your voice
Painted on my memories
Even if you're not with me
I'm with you

You, now I see, keeping everything inside
with you
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes
With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
with you
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes

No, no matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
No, no matter how far we've come I
I can't wait to see tomorrow

With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
with you
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes
With you
You, now I see, keeping everything inside
with you
You, Now I see, Even when I close my eyes

Points Of Authority

Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
Cover up your face / You canít run the race
The pace is too fast / You just won't last

You love the way I look at you
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
You take away if I give in
My life
My pride is broken

You like to think youíre never wrong
(You live what youíve learned)
You have to act like youíre someone
(You live what youíve learned)
You want someone to hurt like you
(You live what youíve learned)
You want to share what youíve been through

Crawling

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real


there's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
consuming/confusing
this lack of self-control I fear is never ending
controlling/I can't seem


to find myself again
my walls are closing in
(without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
so insecure

crawling in my skin
these wounds they will not heal
fear is how I fall
confusing what is real

discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
distracting/reacting
against my will I stand beside my own reflection
it's haunting how I can't seem...

By Myself

What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride / from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I / sit here 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 nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I canít hold on / when Iím stretched so thin
I make the right moves but Iím lost within
I put on my daily faÁade but then
I just end up getting hurt again

by myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

I canít hold on
To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
Itís all too much to take in
I canít hold on
To anything watching everything spin
With thoughts of failure sinking in

If I
Turn my back Iím defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on / then theyíll
Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
If I let them go Iíll be outdone
But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer

[by myself]
[myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I canít rely on myself

Itís all too much to take in

With thoughts of failure sinking in

How do you think / Iíve lost so much
Iím so afraid / Iím out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know / Is what you tell me to
Donít you (know)
I canít tell you how to make it (go)
No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
I canít seem to convince myself (why)
Iím stuck on the outside

In The End

(It starts with)
One thing / I donít know why
It doesnít even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
Itís so unreal
Didnít look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on / but didnít even know
Wasted it all just to
Watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I tried
so hard

And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing / I donít know why
It doesnít even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind / I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how
I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
Iím surprised it got so (far)
Things arenít the way they were before
You wouldnít even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me
In the end
You kept everything inside and even though I tried / it all fell apart
What it meant to me / will eventually / be a memory / of a time when I
I tried so hard

And got so far
But in the end
It doesnít even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesnít even matter

Iíve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
And for all this
Thereís only one thing you should know
Iíve put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
And for all this
Thereís only one thing you should know
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesnít even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all

A Place For My Head

I watch how the
Moon sits in the sky / in the dark night
Shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give / light to the moon assuming
The moonís going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me / You do
Favors and then rapidly / You just
Turn around and start asking me / about
Things you want back from me
Iím sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you donít understand
(Youíll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head
Maybe someday Iíll be just like you / and
Step on people like you do and / Run
Away the people I thought I knew
I remember back then who you were
You used to be calm / used to be strong
Used to be generous / but you shouldíve known / That youíd
Wear out your welcome / now you see
How quiet it is / all alone / Iím so
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed
While / I find a place to rest / Iím so
Sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed
While / I find a place to rest
I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you donít understand
(Youíll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away
You try to take the best of me
Go away

I want to be in another place
I hate when you say you donít understand
(Youíll see it's not meant to be)
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy
A place for my head

Shut...up

Iím so sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

Iím so sick of the tension / sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place / to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

Forgotten

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core Iíve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory wonít escape me
But why should I care

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core Iíve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory wonít escape me
But why should I care

Thereís a place so dark you canít see the end
(Skies cock back) and shock that which canít defend
The rain then sends dripping / an acidic question
Forcefully, the power of suggestion
Then with the eyes shut / looking though the rust and rot
And dust / a spot of light floods the floor
And pours over the rusted world of pretend
The eyes ease open and its dark again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core Iíve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory wonít escape me
But why should I care

In the memory youíll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

Moving all around / screaming of the ups and downs
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps behind
Street lamps, chain-link and concrete
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn floats
On down the street till the wind is gone
The memory now is like the picture was then
When the paperís crumpled up it canít be perfect again

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core Iíve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory wonít escape me
But why should I care

From the top to the bottom
Bottom to top I stop
At the core Iíve forgotten
In the middle of my thoughts
Taken far from my safety
The picture is there
The memory wonít escape me
But why should I care

In the memory youíll find me
Eyes burning up
The darkness holding me tightly
Until the sun rises up

Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back
Iím telling you that
I see it right through you

Now you got me caught in the act
You bring the thought back

Pushing Me Away

Iíve lied / to you
The same way that I always do
This is / the last smile
That Iíll fake for the sake of being with you

Everything falls apart / even the people who never frown / eventually break down
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Everything has to end / youíll soon find weíre out of time left / to watch it all unwind
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Iíve tried / like you
To do everything you wanted too
This is / the last time
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you

Everything falls apart / even the people who never frown / eventually break down
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Everything has to end / youíll soon find weíre out of time left / to watch it all unwind
The sacrifice is never knowing
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

Were all out of time / this is how we learn how it all unwinds
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
Were all out of time / this is how we learn how it all unwinds
The sacrifice is never knowing why...

Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away
Why I never walked away
Why I played myself this way
Now I see your testing me pushes me away

ENTH E ND 
hey yo, when this first started off it was just Linkin Park, and then in the middle came motion man and at the end of it all it was Kutmasta Kurt with a remix( the remix)

[Shinoda] One thing, I dont why it doesnít even matter how hard you try keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme when I was obsessed with time. all I know, time was just sliping away, and i watched it count to the end of the day. watched it watch me and the words that i say. they echo in the clock rythem in my veins. i know that i didnt look out below when i watched the time go right out the window. trying to grabhold, tyring not to watch. i wasted it all on the hands of the clock. but in the end, no matter what i pretend the journey is more important than end or the start and what it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard.

[Chester] I tried so hard, and got so far, but in the end it doesnít even matter. i had to fall, to lose it all, but in the end, it doesnít even matter.

[Motion Man] Hey yo one thing (one thing), i dont know why. it doesnít even matter how hard you try. keep that in mind. I designed this rhyme to explain in due time. all i know, I so-socialize like the host of the party and spost shake the need, I contact. party the toe strong all mat, northeast, southwest coast. im staring out the window at the opportunity to Mendel. i tried disorda your weak in your system and i defordered. i brought you back into things, like the imagionary man of your dreams. youíd always seem to make it worth it. a pig skin, i never nerfed it. you felt lever never pleather real bringing the pleasure. by any means it means Iím leaving your teens,. holler for teen magizens, but i tried so hard.

[Chester] Tried so hard, and got so far, but in the end it dosnt even matter. i had to fall, to lose it all, but in the end, it doesnít even matter.

[Shinoda, Motion Man] Linkin Park! remix motion man Linkin Park! the end (the end) kutmasta kurt Linkin Park! remix motion man Linkin Park! the end (the end) kutmasta kurt remix

[Shinoda] One thing, i dont know how. it doesnít even matter when you look at it now. cuz when designed this rhyme, i was scared of it all. scared to fall, and hadnít even tried to crawl. but i was forced to run, with you mockin me. stoppin me, back stabbing me constantly. remembering all the times you faught with me. watched the clock mount chock full of hip-hopcrisy. and now your mouth wishes it could inhail, every single little thing you said to make things fail. every single word you sputtered to just to get you peace, but it doesnít really matter to me, cuz from the start to the end, no matter what i pretend, the journey is more important than the end or the start. and what it meant to me will eventuly be a memory of a time when i tried so hard.

[Chester] Tried so hard, and got so far, but in the end it doesnít even matter. I had to fall, to lose it all, but in the end, it doesnít even matter.

In the End.. (fades out)

FRGT/10

From the top to the bottom Bottom to top I stop At the core I've forgotten In the middle of my thoughts Taken far from my safety The picture's there The memory won't escape me

[Mike] We're stuck in a place so dark you can hardly see The manner of matter that splits with the words I breathe And as the rain drips acidic questions around me I block out the sight of the powers that be And duck away into the darkness, times up I wind up in a rusted world with eyes shut So tight that it blurs into the world of pretend And the eyes ease open and it's dark again

From the top to the bottom Bottom to top I stop At the core I've forgotten In the middle of my thoughts Taken far from my safety The picture's there The memory won't escape me But why should I care

[Chali 2NA] In the memory you'll find me Eyes burning up The darkness holding me tightly Until the sun rises up

[Mike]Listen to the sound, dizzy from the ups and downs I'm nauseated by the polluted rock that's all around Watchin the wheels of cars that pass I look past To the last of the light and the long shadows it casts A window grows and captures the eye And cries out a yellow light as it passes me by And a young shadowy figure sits in front of a box Inside a building of rock with antennas on top Now, nothing can stop in this land of the pain The sane lose not knowing they were part of the game And while the insides changed the box stays the same And the figure inside could bear anybody's name The memories I keep are from a time like then I put on my paper so I could come back to them Someday I'm hoping to close my eyes and pretend That this crumpled up paper can be perfect again

Yo. From the top to the bottom Bottom to top I stop At the core I've forgotten In the middle of my thoughts Taken far from my safety The picture's there The memory won't escape me

[Chali 2NA] I'm here at this podium talking, the ceremonial offerings Dedicated to urban dysfunctional offspring What's happening? City governments are eternally napping Trapped in greedy convenants causing an urban collapsing Bullets that scar souls with dark holds Get more then your car stole, some hearts be blacker than charcoal For real. This society's deprivation depends Not on our differences but the separation within No preparation is made, limited aid, and minimum wage Living in a tenement cage for innocent pay Tragedy within a parade The darkness overspreads like a permanent plague I'm the forgotten In the memory you'll find me Eyes burning up The darkness holding me tightly Until the sun rises up

45 caliber killer without of the filla
Elevated Show your brothas how your not a gorilla
Smooth talkin fully automatic weapon constiller
Taste thrilla, great filler
Hit him with the bounce stiller
Filthy stinking standing on the side grounded
Still be sinking submerging in the parks
Still be linking plucked beats when it starts
Hope your thinking its not a mirageIím living up off tracks from out of the garage
Well if you could duck but its hard to dodge
In the back of that spine where my darkness lies
Flippin straight up ripping apart your squad
X-Ecutioner's Style cuts and blends
Like a syringe banging you in each of your limbs
See me coming through your party hard
Without no body guard
Smoking something, stomping on each of your toes
I'm the B to the L to the A to the C King

And when it comes to planning the Thought, keeping thinking this

[Mike]
Hybrid
(Linkin Park)
I've been diggin into crates ever since I was livin in space
Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
I mastered numerology, and big bang theology
performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
Invented the mic so I can start blessin it
Chin-checkin' kids to make my point like an impressionist
Many men have tried to shake us But I twist mic chords like double helixes
to show them what I'm made of
I buckle knees like leg braces, cast a spell of instrumentalist
on all of you MCs who hate us
So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
From now to infinity, let icon be bygones
I fire bombs, ghostly notes haunt this
I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rythm and rhyme collide

[Mike]
I've put a kink in the backbones, of clones with microphones
Never satisfied my rhymes jones
Spraying bright day over what you might say My blood types krybon, Technicolor type A
On highways write with road rage
Cages of wind, And cages of tin,
that bounce all around
Surround sound, devouring the scenes
Subliminal gangrene paintings, over all the same things
Sing songs karaoke copy bullshit
Break bones verbally
with sticks and stones tactics
Forth dimension, compact convention
Write rhymes with ease
while the track stands at attention
Meant to put you away with the pencil
Pistol, official, sixteen line, a rhyme missile
While you risk your all I pick out all your flaws
Singing rah blah, blah, blah you can say you saw

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound
High voltage
Bringin you up and takin you down
High voltage
Comin at you from every side
High voltage
Making the rythm and rhyme collide (2x)

[Pharoahe Monch]
Who's the man, demanding you hand over your land Rover
the man's bolder than the Pharoahe
when he jams you glance over
I am visclorosuos, the most ferocious
When I spy my third eye it's extremely high voltage
That's why I need ruby quartz glasses,
cause when I glance theres a chance
That I might blast the masses
Subliminals transmitted through piano
Integrated in flow, calculated to nano
I use skills when I need pleas
heats the rhyme I hear when I bleed as I proceed through time
I walk through walls and inanimate obstacles
By enducing the reduction of cells and molecules
I bring the knowledge you swallow a state that's a hologram
I botch your head, faten your lip like collagen
The telepath delivers verses with no postage
Mike Shinoda, Pharoahe Monche we high voltage

High voltage
This is the unforgettable sound

Bringin you up and takin you down

WTH>YOU

[Chester]
Come on!!

[Mike]
I woke up in a dream today
to the cold of the static, put my cold feet on the floor
forgot all about yesterday
remembering I'm pretending to be where I'm not anymore
a little taste of hypocrisy
and I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react
even though you're so close to me
you're still so distant and I can't bring you back

[Chester]
It's true the way I feel
was promised by your face
the sound of your voice
painted on my memories
even if you're not with me
I'm with you

You now I see keeping everything inside
With you
You now I see even when I close my eyes
With you (2x)

[Mike]
I hit you and you hit me back
and we fall to the floor the rest of the day stands still
fine line between this and that
but when things go wrong I pretend that the past isn't real
I'm trapped in this memory
and I'm left in the wake of the mistake slow to react
even though you're close to me
you're still so distant and i can't bring you back

[Chester]
it's true the way I feel
was promised by your face
the sound of your voicepainted on my memories
even if you're not with me
I'm with you

You now I see keeping everything inside
With you
You now I see even when I close my eyes
With you (2x)

[Aceyalone]
I won't let you control my fate
while I'm holding the weight of the world on my conscience
I won't just sit here and wait
While you weighing your options you're making a fool of me
you didn't dare try to say
that you don't care you solemnly swear not to follow me there
It ain't like me to beg on my knees
oh, please, oh baby, please that's not how I'm doing things
no I'm not upset, no I'm not angry
I know love is love, love sometimes it pains me
With or without you I'll always be with you
you'll never forget me, I'm keeping you with me
no I won't let you take me to the end of my rope while you burn
and torture my soul
No I'm not your puppet and no, no, no I won't let you go

[Chester]
No matter how far we've come
I can't wait to see tomorrow
no matter how far we've come I
I can't wait to see tomorrow
with you

You now I see keeping everything inside
With you
You now I see even when i close my eyes
With you (2x)

[Rasco]
Uh, yeah.

[Mike]
Why does it feel like night today, something in here's not right today
Why I am 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
Like a face that I hold inside, a face that awakes when I close my eyes Face that watches every time I lie, face that laughs every time I fall
and watches everything
So I know that when its time to sink or swim
The face inside is hearing me right beneath my skin

[Chester]
Its like I'm paranoid looking over my back
Its like a whirlwind inside of my head
Its like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
Its like the face inside is right beneath my skin

[Rasco]
Hey yo, here we go again with the pain I feel isn't real but in my mind
But I find myself in places with names, but not faces
My memory races at speeds hundred degrees
My soul it bleeds devil must have planted the seed
Now it feels like my backs against the wall, I'm taking the fall
Whenever I call nobody's responding at all
But I don't know who I could trust they screaming my name
I need somebody to help me out of the flame

[Planet Asia]
All I'm trying to do is just master me
all I want to do is smoke a blaster beat
but something keeps talking to me consciously
responsibly it keeps haunting me
From dusk till dawn
Everything has something for ya
That voice inside of your head got you projecting Paranoia
cold sweat shining on your face exposing your purpose and if I
ripped off your skin I'll probably find another verse
Its nothing worse than trying to bring yourself up back from the dead
so I advise you listen to that voice in the back of your head

[Chester]
Its like I'm paranoid looking over my back
Its like a whirlwind inside of my head
Its like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
Its like the face inside is right beneath my skin (2x)

[Mike]
The face inside is right beneath your skin (4x)

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
Its like Iím paranoid..
I feel the light betray me

Its like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
Its like the face inside is right beneath my skin (2x)

Myself!
Myself!

[Mike]
What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
Do I hide my pride, from these bad dreams
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening?
Do I sit here 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 nobody and live in loneliness?
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I make the right moves 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 cant rely on myself

[Chester]
I can't look around Its too much to take in
I can't hold on, When I'm stretched so thin
I can't slow down, Watching everything spin
I can't look past, Its starting over again

[Mike]
If I turn my back I'm defenseless
And to go blindly seems senseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll
Take from me till 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

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 cant rely on myself

I can't look around, Its too much to take in
I can't hold on, When I'm stretched so thin
I can't slow down, Watching everything spin
I can't look past, Its starting over again

Don't You (repeated over and over again)
KNOW!
I cant tell you how to make it
Go!
NO matter what I do, how hard I
TRY!
I cant seem to convince myself
WHY!

Need room to breathe (x3)

I cannot take this anymore.
Saying everything I said before.
All these words they make no sense,
I find bliss in ignorance,
The less I hear the less you say,
You'll find that out anyway.
I find the answers aren't so clear.
I wish I could find a way to disappear
All these thoughts they make no sense,
I find bliss in ignorance,
Nothing seems to go away,
Over and over again (x5)

Somewhere I Belong
Verse 1]
I had nothing to say
and i get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(i was confused)
and i live it all out to find, but im not the only person wit these things in mind
(inside of me)
but all that they can see the words revealed
is the only real thing that i got left to feel
(nothing to lose)
just stuck hollow and alone
and the fault is my own and the fault is my own

[Chorus]
i wanna heal i wanna feel what i thought was never real
i wanna let go of the pain ive felt so long.
erase all the pain til its gone
i wanna heal i wanna feel like im close to something real.
i wanna find something ive wanted all along
somewhere i belong

and i got nothing to say. i cant believe i didnt fall right down on my face
(i was confused)
look at everywhere only to find.
it is not the way i had imagined it all in my mind.
(so what am i)
what do i have but negativity
cuz i cant trust no one by the way everyone is looking at me
(nothing to lose)
nothing to gain im hollow and alone
and the fault is my own
and the fault is my own

[repeat chorus]

[Verse 3] (Chester)
I will never know myself until i do this on my own
cuz i will never feel anything else until my wounds are healed
i will never be anything til i break away from me
i will break away. ill find myself today

Lying From You

When I pretend everything is what I want it to be
I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend to forget about the criminal I am
Stealing second after second just 'cause I know I can
But I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay
I'm just trying to fill the truth
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be
So I'm lying away from you

No, no turning back now
I want to be closed inside
So let me go
No, no turning back now
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
No turning back now
Than anywhere on my own
'Cause I can't see
No, no turning back now
The very worst part of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk of who it ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fitting in
And now you think this person really is me and
I'm trying to fill the truth
The more I push the more I'm pulling away
'Cause I'm lying my way from you

No, no turning back now
I want to be closed inside
So let me go
No, no turning back now
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
No turning back now
Than anywhere on my own
'Cause I can't see
No, no turning back now
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me

This isn't what I want it to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I want it to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I want it to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I want it to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you running from me
Like this

You
No turning back now
I want to be closed inside
So let me go
No, no turning back now
Let me take back my life
I'd rather be all alone
No turning back now
Than anywhere on my own

No, no turning back now

Hit The Floor

There were just too many times people have tried to look inside of me
Wondering what I think of you and I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that I've held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind
Afraid to say what I need to say
Too many things that you say about me when Iím not around
You think having the upper hand means you gotta keep putting me down
But i've had too many stand-offs with you, its about as much as I can stand
So Iíll wait until the upper hand is mine

One minute your on top
The next your not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute your on top
The next your not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won
And then it's all gone

So many people like me that put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned of what you think, to just say what we feel inside
So many people like me walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want is to feel like i'm not stepped on
There are so many things you say that make me feel you've cross the line
What goes up will surely fall, and i'm counting down the time
Cause i've had so many stand-offs with you, its about as much as I can stand
So i'm waiting until the upper hand is mine

One minute your on top
The next your not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute your on top
The next your not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won
And then it's all gone
And then itís all gone
And then itís all gone
And then itís all gone
Now itís all gone

I know i'll never trust a single thing you say
You realize we're dividous but your right anyway
And all the lies have got you floating up above us all
But what goes up as got to fall

One minute your on top
The next your not, watch it drop
Making your heart stop
Just before you hit the floor
One minute your on top
The next your not, missed your shot
Making your heart stop
You think you've won
And then it's all gone
And then itís all gone
And then itís all gone
And then itís all gone
Now itís all gone

Easier To Run

Chorus
It's eaiser to run
replacing this pain with something numb
it's so much easier to go
than face all this pain here all alone

something has been taken
from deep inside of me
a secret i've kept locked away
no one can ever see
wounds so deep they never show
they never go away
like moving pictures in my head
for years and years they've played

if i could change i would
take back the pain i would
retrace every wrong move that i made i would
if i could
stand up and take the blame i would
if i could take all the shame to the grave i would
if i could change i would
take back the pain i would
retrace every wrong move that i made i would
if i could
stand up and take the blame i would
if i could take all my shame to the grave

Chorus

Sometimes i remember
the darkness of my past
bringing back these memories
i wish i didnt have
sometimes i think of letting go
and never looking back
and never moving forward so
there would never be a past

if i could change i would
take back the pain i would
retrace every wrong move that i made i would
if i could
stand up and take the blame i would
if i could take all the shame to the grave i would
if i could change i would
take back the pain i would
retrace every wrong move that i made i would
if i could
stand up and take the blame i would
if i could take all my shame to the grave

just washing it aside
all of the helplessness inside
pretending i don't feel misplaced
is so much simpler than change

Chorus

Faint

I have a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I can't help the fact
That everybody can see these scars
I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel
But it's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you
To just believe this is real
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be there 'cause you're all that I've got

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I am a little bit insecure, a little unconfident
'Cause you don't understand, I do what I can
But sometimes I don't make sense
I am what you never want to say, but I've never had a doubt
It's like no matter what I do, I can't convince you
For once just to hear me out
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I'm not
But I'll be here 'cause you're all that I've got

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

Hear me out now
You're going to listen to me
Like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
You're going to listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel the way I did before
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal this damage anymore
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

I can't feel
I won't be ignored
Time won't heal
Don't turn your back on me
I won't be ignored

Figure.09

VERSE I

Nothing ever stops all these thoughts
And the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happenin'
It's like nothing I could do would distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
Cause from the infinite words I could say
I put all the pain you gave to me on display
But didn't realize instead of setting it free I
Took what I hated and made it apart of me

[It Never Goes Away] x2

CHORUS

And Now
You've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate
Myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

VERSE II

Hearing your name
The memories come back again
I remember when it started happenin'
I'd see you in every thought I had and then
My thoughts slowly found words attached to them
And I knew as they escaped away
I was committing myself to 'em
And every day I regret saying those things
Cause now I see that I
Took what I hated and made it apart of me

[It Never Goes Away] x2

CHORUS

[It Never Goes Away] x4

BRIDGE

GET AWAY FROM ME!
Give me my space back, You've gotta just (GO!)
Everything just comes down to memories of (YOU!)
I've kept it in without letting you (KNOW!)
I've let you go! So..

GET AWAY FROM ME!
Give me my space back, You've gotta just (GO!)
Everything just comes down to memories of (you)
I've kept it in without letting you (KNOW!)
I've let you go!

CHORUS

I've let myself become you
I've let myself become lost
inside these thoughts of you.
Giving up on part of me
I've let myself become you

Breaking The Habit

Memories consume like opening the wounds,
I'm picking me apart again.
You all assume, I'm searching in my room,
Unless I try to start again.
I don't want to be the one the battles always choose,
Coz inside I realize that I'm the one confused.

I don't know what's worth fighting for, or why I have to scream...
I don't know why I instigate, and say what I don't mean...
I don't know how I got this way, I know it's not alright...
So I'm breaking the habit,
I'm breaking the habit tonight.

Clutching my cure, I tightly lock the door,
I try to catch my breath again.
I heard much more than any time before,
I have no options left again.
I don't want to be the one the battles always choose,
Coz inside I realize that I'm the one confused.

I don't know what's worth fighting for, or why I have to scream...
I don't know why I instigate, and say what I don't mean...
I don't know how I got this way, I'll never be alright...
So I'm breaking the habit,
I'm breaking the habit tonight.

I'll paint it on the walls,
Coz I'm the one that falls,
I'll never fight again,
and this is how it ends...

I don't know what's worth fighting for, or why I have to scream...
But now I have some clarity to show you what I mean...
I don't know how I got this way, I'll never be alright...
So I'm breaking the habit,
I'm breaking the habit,
I'm breaking the habit tonight.

From The Inside

I don't know who to trust the surprise
And I feel so far away from me
And my thoughts set through dust and the lies
Trying not to break but I'm so tired of this deceit
Everytime I try to make myself get back upon my feet
All I ever think about is this
All the time and time between
And how trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

Take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
'Cause I swear for the last time
I won't trust myself with you

Tension is building inside steadily
And I feel so far away from pain
And I'm floating away out of me
Trying not to break but I'm so tired of this deceit
Everytime I try to make myself get back upon my feet
All I ever think about is this
All the time and time between
And how trying to put my trust in you
Just takes so much out of me

Take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
'Cause I swear for the last time
I won't trust myself with you

I won't waste myself on you
You, you
Waste myself on you
You, you

I'll take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
'Cause I swear for the last time
I won't trust myself with you

Everything from the inside
And throw it all away
'Cause I swear for the last time
I won't trust myself with you
You, you

Nobody's Listening

Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you

Yo, peep the style and the kids checking for it
The number one question is: how could you ignore it
And drop right back in the cut over basement tracks with rap stack
Got you backing this up like rewind that
We're just rolling with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics are life living
Not to be forgotten but still unforgiven
But in the meantime there are those who want to talk this and that
So I suppose that it gets to a point
Where feelings got to get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreading the dirt, it goes

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
And everything left's a waste of time
I hate my rhymes but I hate everyone else's more
I'm riding on the back of this pressure
Guessing that it's better I can't keep myself together
Because all of this stress gave me something to write on
And the pain gave me something I could set my sights on
I'll never forget the blood, sweat, and tears
The uphill struggle over years
The fearing trash talking and the people it was to
And the people that started it just like you

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain, head full of stress
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain

Tried to give you warning but everyone ignores me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening
Called to you so clearly but you don't want to hear me
Told you everything loud and clear but nobody's listening

I've got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Nobody's listening
Hand full of anger held in my chest
Nobody's listening
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat, and tears
Nobody's listening
Nothing to gain, everything to fear
Nobody's listening

Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you
Coming at you from every side

Numb

I'm tired of being what you want me to be,
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface,
I don't know what you're expecting of me,
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes.

Caught in the under-tone,
Just caught in the under-tone.

Every step that I take is another mistake to you.

Caught in the under-tone,
Just caught in the under-tone.

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 your smothering me,
Holding too tightly, afraid to loose control,
'Cause everything that you thought I would be,
Has fallen apart, right in front of you.

Caught in the under-tone,
Just caught in the under-tone.

Every step that I take is another mistake to you.

Caught in the under-tone,
Just caught in the under-tone.

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 becomming 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 becomming 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.
