Papercut<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Why does it feel like night today? <br />
Something in here's not right today. <br />
Why am I so uptight today? <br />
Paranoia's all I got left <br />
I don't know what stressed me first <br />
Or how the pressure was fed <br />
But I know just what it feels like <br />
To have a voice in the back of my head <br />
It's like a face that I hold inside <br />
A face that awakes when I close my eyes <br />
A face watches every time I lie <br />
A face that laughs every time I fall <br />
(And watches everything) <br />
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim <br />
That the face inside is hearing me <br />
Right underneath my skin <br />
<br />
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back <br />
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head <br />
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within <br />
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin <br />
<br />
I know I've got a face in me <br />
Points out all my mistakes to me <br />
You've got a face on the inside too and <br />
Your paranoia's probably worse <br />
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand <br />
Everybody acts like the fact of the matter is <br />
I can't add up to what you can but <br />
Everybody has a face that they hold inside <br />
A face that awakes when I close my eyes <br />
A face watches every time they lie <br />
A face that laughs every time they fall <br />
(And watches everything) <br />
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim <br />
That the face inside is watching you too <br />
Right inside your skin <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x)<br />
<br />
The face inside is right beneath your skin (3x) <br />

The sun goes down <br />
I feel the light betray me (Repeat until end) <br />
<br />
Chorus (Repeat until end)<br />
<br />
One Step Closer<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I cannot take this anymore <br />
I'm saying everything I've said before <br />
All these words they make no sense <br />
I find bliss in ignorance <br />
Less I hear the less you'll say <br />
But you'll find that out anyway <br />
Just like before... <br />
<br />
Everything you say to me <br />
Takes me one step closer to the edge <br />
And I'm about to break <br />
I need a little room to breathe <br />
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge <br />
And I'm about to break <br />
<br />
I find the answers aren't so clear <br />
Wish I could find a way to disappear <br />
All these thoughts they make no sense <br />
I find bliss in ignorance <br />
Nothing seems to go away <br />
Over and over again<br />
Just like before... <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x)<br />
<br />
shut up when I'm talking to you <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x)<br />
<br />
With You<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I woke up in a dream today <br />
To the cold of the static and put my cold feet on the floor <br />
Forgot all about yesterday <br />
Remembering Im pretending to be where Im not anymore <br />
A little taste of hypocrisy <br />
And Im left in the wake of the mistake slow to react <br />
Even though youre so close to me <br />
Youre still so distant And I cant bring you back <br />
<br />
Its true the way I feel <br />
Was promised by your face <br />
The sound of your voice <br />
Painted on my memories <br />
Even if youre not with me <br />
Im with you <br />
You Now I see keeping everything inside <br />
(With you)<br />
You Now I see Even when I close my eyes <br />
<br />
I hit you and you hit me back <br />
We fall to the floor the rest of the day stands still <br />
Fine line between this and that <br />
When things go wrong I pretend the past isnt real <br />
Now I'm trapped in this memory <br />
And Im left in the wake of the mistake slow to react <br />
So even though youre close to me <br />
Youre still so distant And I cant bring you back <br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
No matter how far we've come <br />
I can't wait to see tomorrow (2x)<br />
<br />
With you <br />
You Now I see keeping everything inside <br />
With you<br />
You Now I see Even when I close my eyes (2x)<br />
<br />
Points Of Authority<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Forfeit the game Before somebody else <br />
Takes you out of the frame Puts your name to shame <br />
Cover up your face You cant run the race <br />
The pace is too fast You just won't last <br />
<br />
You love the way I look at you <br />
While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through <br />
You take away if I give in <br />
My life <br />
My pride is broken <br />
<br />
You like to think youre never wrong <br />
You have to act like youre someone <br />
You want someone to hurt like you <br />
You want to share what youve been through <br />
<br />
You love the things I say Ill do- <br />
The way Ill hurt myself again just to get back at you <br />
You take away when I give in <br />
My life <br />
My pride is broken <br />
<br />
You like to think youre never wrong <br />
You have to act like youre someone <br />
You want someone to hurt like you <br />
You want to share what youve been through <br />
(You live what you learn) <br />
<br />
Forfeit the game Before somebody else <br />
Takes you out of the frame Puts your name to shame <br />
Cover up your face You cant run the race <br />
The pace is too fast You just won't last (2x)<br />
<br />
You like to think youre never wrong <br />
You have to act like youre someone <br />

<br />
Crawling<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Crawling in my skin <br />
These wounds they will not heal <br />
Fear is how I fall <br />
Confusing what is real <br />
<br />
Theres something inside me that pulls beneath the surface <br />
Consuming confusing <br />
This lack of self control I fear is never ending <br />
Controlling I cant seem <br />
To find myself again <br />
My walls are closing in <br />
[Without a sense of confidence Im convinced <br />
there's just too much pressure to take] <br />
Ive felt this way before <br />
So insecure <br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me <br />
Distracting reacting <br />
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection <br />
Its haunting how I cant seem <br />
To find myself again <br />
My walls are closing in <br />
[Without a sense of confidence Im convinced <br />
there's just too much pressure to take] <br />
Ive felt this way before <br />
So insecure... <br />
<br />
Chorus (repeat until end)<br />
<br />
Theres something inside me that pulls beneath the surface <br />
Consuming confusing <br />
This lack of self control I fear is never ending <br />
Controlling (whispered during chorus)<br />
<br />
Runaway<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Graffiti decorations <br />
Underneath a sky of dust <br />
A constant wave of tension <br />
On top of broken trust <br />
The lessons that you taught me <br />
I learn were never true <br />
Now I find myself in question <br />
They point the finger at me again <br />
Guilty by association <br />
You point the finger at me again <br />
<br />
I wanna run away <br />
Never say goodbye <br />
I wanna know the truth <br />
Instead of wondering why <br />
I wanna know the answers <br />
No more lies <br />
I wanna shut the door <br />
And open up my mind <br />
<br />
Paper bags and angry voices <br />
Under a sky of dust <br />
Another wave of tension <br />
Has more than filled me up <br />
All my talk of taking action <br />
These words were never true <br />
Now I find myself in question <br />
They point the finger at me again <br />
Guilty by association <br />
You point the finger at me again <br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
I Gonna run away and never say goodbye<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...)<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...) <br />
<br />
I Gonna run away and never wonder why<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...)<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...) <br />
<br />
I Gonna run away and open up my mind<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...)<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...) <br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...)<br />
(Gonna run away... Gonna run away...) <br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
By Myself<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
What do I do to ignore them behind me? <br />
Do I follow my instincts blindly? <br />
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams <br />
And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening? <br />
Do I sit here and try to stand it? <br />
Or do I try to catch them redhanded? <br />
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness, <br />
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness? <br />
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin <br />
I make the right moves but I'm lost within <br />
I put on my daily fasade but then <br />
I just end up getting hurt again <br />
<br />
By myself (myself)<br />
I ask why, but in my mind <br />
I find I can't rely on (myself) <br />
I can't hold on <br />
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin <br />
It's all too much to take in <br />
I can't hold on <br />
To anything watching everything spin <br />
With thoughts of failure sinking in <br />
<br />
If I turn my back I'm defenseless <br />
And to go blindly seems senseless <br />
If I hide my pride and let it all go on then they'll <br />
Take from me 'till everything is gone <br />
If I let them go I'll be outdone <br />
But if I try to catch them I'll be outrun <br />
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer <br />
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer by myself (myself)<br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
How do you think I've lost so much <br />
I'm so afraid I'm out of touch <br />
How do you expect I will know what to do <br />
When all I know Is what you tell me to <br />
<br />
Don't you (know) <br />
I can't tell you how to make it (go) <br />
No matter what I do, how hard I (try) <br />
I can't seem to convince myself (why) <br />
I'm stuck on the outside (2x)<br />
<br />
I can't hold on <br />
To what I want when I'm stretched so thin <br />
It's all too much to take in <br />
I can't hold on <br />
To anything watching everything spin <br />
With thoughts of failure sinking in (2x)<br />
<br />
In The End<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
It starts with one thing <br />
I don't know why <br />
It doesn't even matter how hard you try <br />
keep that in mind <br />
I designed this rhyme <br />
To explain in due time <br />
All I know <br />
Time is a valuable thing <br />
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings <br />
Watch it count down to the end of the day <br />
The clock ticks life away <br />
It's so unreal <br />
Didn't look out below <br />
Watch the time go right out the window <br />
Trying to hold on, but didn't even know <br />
Wasted it all just to watch you go <br />
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart <br />
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when <br />
<br />
I tried so hard <br />
And got so far <br />
But in the end <br />
It doesn't even matter <br />
I had to fall <br />
To lose it all <br />
But in the end <br />
It doesn't even matter <br />
<br />
One thing, I don't know why <br />
It doesn't even matter how hard you try <br />
keep that in mind <br />
I designed this rhyme, to remind myself how<br />
I tried so hard <br />
In spite of the way you were mocking me <br />
Acting like I was part of your property <br />
Remembering all the times you fought with me <br />
I'm surprised it got so (far) <br />
Things aren't the way they were before <br />
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore <br />
Not that you knew me back then <br />
But it all comes back to me (in the end) <br />
You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart <br />
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when <br />
<br />
Chorus <br />
<br />
I've put my trust in you <br />
Pushed as far as I can go <br />
And for all this <br />
There's only one thing you should know (2x) <br />
<br />
Chorus<br />
<br />
A Place For My Head<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I watch how the moon sits in the sky <br />
On a dark night shining with the light from the sun <br />
The sun doesn't give light to the moon <br />
Assuming the moon's going to owe it one <br />
It makes me think of how you act to me <br />
You do favors and then rapidly <br />
You just turn around and start asking me about <br />
Things you want back from me <br />
<br />
Pre chorus: <br />
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger <br />
Sick of you acting like I owe you this <br />
Find another place to feed your greed <br />
While I find a place to rest <br />
<br />
Chorus:<br />
I want to be in another place <br />
I hate when you say you don't understand <br />
(You'll see it's not meant to be) <br />
I want to be in the energy, not with the enemy <br />
A place for my head <br />
<br />
Maybe someday I'll be just like you, and <br />
Step on people like you do and <br />
Run away the people I thought I knew <br />
I remember back then who you were <br />
You used to be calm, used to be strong <br />
Used to be generous, but you should've known <br />
That you'd wear out your welcome <br />
Now you see how quiet it is, all alone <br />
<br />
Chorus <br />
<br />
You try to take the best of me <br />
Go away (8x) <br />
<br />
Chorus <br />
<br />
Pre chorus (2x) <br />
<br />
Forgotten<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
From the top to the bottom <br />
Bottom to top I stop <br />
At the core I've forgotten <br />
In the middle of my thoughts <br />
<br />
Taken far from my safety <br />
The picture is there <br />
The memory won't escape me <br />
But why should I care (2x) <br />
<br />
There's a place so dark you can't see the end <br />
(Skies cock back) and shock that which can't defend <br />
The rain then sends dripping acidic questions <br />
Forcefully, the power of suggestion <br />
Then with the eyes tightly shut looking thought the rust and rotten dust <br />
A spot of light floods the floor <br />
And pours over the rusted world of pretend <br />
The eyes ease open and its dark again <br />
<br />
Chorus <br />
<br />
Bridge: <br />
In the memory you'll find me <br />
Eyes burning up <br />
The darkness holding me tightly <br />
Until the sun rises up <br />
<br />
Moving all around <br />
Screaming of the ups and downs <br />
Pollution manifested in perpetual sound <br />
The wheels go round and the sunset creeps past the <br />
Street lamps, chain-link, and concrete <br />
A little piece of paper with a picture drawn <br />
Floats on down the street till the wind is gone <br />
The memory now is like the picture was then <br />
When the paper's crumpled up it can't be perfect again <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x) <br />
<br />
Bridge <br />
<br />
Now you got me caught in the act <br />
You bring the thought back <br />
I'm telling you that <br />
I see it right through you (7x) <br />
<br />
Bridge (2x)<br />
<br />
A Cure For The Itch<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
(Unnamed announcer): Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight.<br />
I'd like to introduce...<br />
Mr. Hahn!<br />
Let's hear it for the great Mr. Hahn!<br />
And now a lesson in rhythm management.<br />
Let's begin...<br />
Alright now, wasn't that fun?<br />
Let's try something else.<br />
<br />
Pushing Me Away<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
I've lied to you <br />
The same way that I always do <br />
This is the last smile <br />
That I'll fake for the sake of being with you <br />
<br />
Pre chorus: <br />
(Everything falls apart, even the people who never frown eventually break down) <br />
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie <br />
(Everything has to end, you'll soon find we're out of time left to watch it all unwind) <br />
The sacrifice is never knowing <br />
<br />
Why I never walked away <br />
Why I played myself this way <br />
Now I see your testing me pushes me away (2x)<br />
<br />
I've tried like you <br />
To do everything you wanted too <br />
This is the last time <br />
I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you <br />
<br />
Pre chorus <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x) <br />
<br />
We're all out of time, this is how we find how it all unwinds <br />
The sacrifice of hiding in a lie <br />
We're all out of time, this is how we find how it all unwinds <br />
The sacrifice is never knowing <br />
<br />
Chorus (2x) <br />
<br />
Pushes me away(2x)
