PAPER CUT

Linkin Park 
 

Why does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I 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

It's 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 it's time to sink or swim 
That the face inside is hearing me
Right underneath my skin 

It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back 
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head 
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within 
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin 

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me 
You've got a face on the inside too and 
Your paranoia's probably worse 
I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand 
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is 
I can't add up to what you can but 

Everybody has a face that they hold inside 
A face that awakes when I close my eyes 
A face watches every time they lie 
A face that laughs every time they fall 
(And watches everything)

So you know that when it's time to sink or swim 
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin 

The sun goes down 
I feel the light betray me
