[Mike Shinoda]
Why's does it feel like night today?
Something in here's not right today
Why am I so uptight today?
Paranoia's all I got left
I don't know what stressed me first
Or how the pressure was fed
But I know just what it feels like
To have a voice in the back of my head
It's like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face that watches everytime I lie
A face that laughs everytime I fall
(It watches everything)
So no doubt when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is hearing me right underneath my skin

[Chester]
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

[Rasco]
Hey yo
Here we go again with the pain I feel isn't real but in my mind
But I find myself in places with names but not faces
My memory races at speeds hundred degrees
My soul it bleeds devil must have planted the seed
Now it feels like my backs against the wall I'm taking the fall
Whenever I call nobody's responding at all
But I don't know who I can trust their screaming my name
I need somebody to help me out of the flames

[Planet Asia]
All I'm trying to do is just master me
All I wanna do is smoke a blaster beat
But something keeps talking to me consciously
Responsibly it keeps haunting me
From dusk till dawn everything has something for ya
That voice inside of your head got you projecting paranoia
Cold sweat shining on your face exposing your purpose
And if I ripped off the skin I'd probably find out that the person
There's nothing worse the trying to pull yourself back up from the dead
So I advise you listen to that voice in the back of your head

[Chester]
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin

[Mike Shinoda]
The face inside is right beneath your skin
The the face inside is right beneath your skin
The the the face inside is right beneath your skin
The-face-inside-is-right-beneath-your-skin!

[Chester]
The sun goes down
I feel the night betray me
The sun goes down

It's like I'm paranoid! (echoes)

I feel the night betray me
The sun

(Echoes)
Can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside it's right right beneath the skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
Like a whirl whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside it's right right beneath the skin

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back
Like a whirl whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
It's like the face inside it's right right beneath the skin
