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 the sad thoughts and the maddening?
Do I  
sit here, try to stand it   or
Do I
try to catch them red-handed?
Do I
 trust some that get fooled by phoniness   or
Do I  
trust nobody and live in loneliness?
Cause 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)
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 question like cancer   then
I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

(by myself)
How do you think I've lost so much?
I'm so afraid I'm out of touch.
How do you expect I'll know what to do,
When all I know is what you told me too?
