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 cant hold on / when Im stretched so thin
I make the right moves but Im lost within
I put on my daily faade but then
I just end up getting hurt again
By myself [myself]
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I cant rely on myself

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

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

How do you think / Ive lost so much
Im so afraid / Im out of touch
How do you expect / I will know what to do
When all I know / Is what you tell me to
Dont you 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
Im stuck on the outside
