Song Meaning
Verse 1
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)
Verse 2
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself
Verse 0
[Chorus]
I can't look around
(Its to much to take in)
I can't hold on
Do what I want
(Because I'm stretched so thin)
I can't slow down
(Watching everything spin)
I can't look back
(Starting over again)
Verse 3
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)
Verse 4
I ask why, but in my mind
I find I can't rely on myself
Verse 5
[Chorus]
Verse 6
[Repeat: x30]
Don't you
Verse 7
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'm stuck on the outside.
I'm stuck on the outside.
I'm stuck on the outside.
I'm stuck on the outside.
