[Part 1: Mike Shinoda]
Why 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
Like a face that I hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time I lie
A face that laughs every time I fall
(And watches everything)

So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is here in me

Right beneath my skin

[Chorus: Chester Bennington]
It's like I'm paranoid lookin' 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


[Part 2: Mike Shinoda]
I know I've got a face in me
Points out all my mistakes to me

You've got a face on the inside too and
Your paranoia's probably worse

I don't know what set me off first
But I know what I can't stand

Everybody lacks but the fact of the matter is
I can't add up to what you can but

Everybody has a face that they hold inside
A face that awakes when I close my eyes
A face watches every time they lie
A face that laughs every time they fall
(And watches everything)

So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
That the face inside is watching you too
Right inside your skin


[Chorus: Chester Bennington] (2x)

[Bridge 1]
The face inside is right beneath your skin [x3]

[Bridge 2: Chester Bennington]
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun
I feel the light betray me
The sun
I feel the light betray me


[Chorus: Mike Shinoda] (2x)
