What do I do to ignore them behind me?
Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams
Do I sit here and try to stand it?
Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
Because I can't hold on when I'm stretched so thin
I put on my daily facade but then
By myself (myself)
I ask why, but in my mind
I ask why, but in my mind

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin.
I can't hold on.
With thoughts of failure sinking in.
If I turn my back I'm defenseless
If I hide my pride and let it all go on
If I let them go I'll be outdone
If I'm killed by the questions like a cancer
By myself (myself)
I ask why, but in my mind
I ask why, but in my mind

To what I want when I'm stretched so thin.
I can't hold on.
With thoughts of failure sinking in.
How do you think
I'm so afraid
How do you expect
When all I know

I can't tell you how to make it
How hard I
I'm stuck on the outside
I can't tell you how to make it
How hard I
I'm stuck on the outside
I can't hold on
It's all too much to take in
(To anything watching everything spin)

(To what I want when I'm stretched so thin)
I can't hold on
Without some failure sinking
