    Lyrics

    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 into 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 can't rely on myself

    I can't hold on
    To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
    It's all too much to take in
    I can't hold on
    To anything watching everything spin
    With thoughts of failure sinking in

    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 then 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 can't rely on myself

    I can't hold on
    To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
    It's all too much to take in
    I can't hold on
    To anything watching everything spin
    With thoughts of failure sinking in

    How do you think
    I've lost so much
    I'm so afraid
    I'm out of touch
    How do you expect
    I will know what to do
    When all I know
    Is what you tell me to

    Don't you (know)
    I can't tell you how to make it (go)
    No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
    I can't seem to convince myself (why)
    I'm stuck on the outside
    Don't you (know)
    I can't tell you how to make it (go)
    No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
    I can't seem to convince myself (why)
    I'm stuck on the outside

    I can't hold on
    To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
    It's all to much to take in
    I can't hold on
    To anything watching everything spin
    With thoughts of failure sinking in

    I can't hold on
    To what I want when I'm stretched so thin
    It's all to much to take in
    I can't hold on
    To anything watching everything spin
    With thoughts of failure sinking...
