Album: Hybrid Theory

Intro:

E  G#m (4x) E

Verses 1:

     G#m
What do I do to ignore them behind me?
     F#
Do I follow my instincts blindly?
     C#m
Do I hide my pride behind these bad dreams
      E
And give into sad thoughts that are maddening?

          G#m
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
     F#
Or do I try to catch them red-handed?
     C#m
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness?
     E                                       F#
Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?

             G#m
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
    F#
I make the right moves but I'm lost within
     C#m
I put on my daily facade but then. 
    E            F#
I just end up Getting hurt again

Chorus:

    G#m         E 
By myself (myself)
          G#m         
I ask why (but in my mind I find)
     E               G#m
I can't rely on myself(myself)
    E             G#m
I ask why (but in my mind I find)
     E              G#m
I can't rely on myself
          E
I can't hold on
               C#m
(to what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
G#m           E        C#m
It's all too much to take in
G#m          E
I can't hold on
                     C#m
(to anything watching everything spin)
G#m                E       C#m
With thoughts of failure sinking in


Verses 2:

  G#m
If I turn my back I'm defenseless
   F#
And to go blindly seems senseless
      C#m
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
(then they'll)
   E
Take from me till everything is gone

   G#m
If I let them go I'll be outdone (but if I)
   F#
Try to catch them I'll be outrun
   C#m
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
    E                                          F#
Then I'll be buried in the silence of the answer

(Chorus)


Bridge:

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

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


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

(Chorus)
