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 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
Face that awakes when I close my eyes
Face that watches everytime I lie
Face that laughs everytime I fall
(It watches everything)
So I know that when it's time to sink or swim
The face inside is hearing me 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

I know I've got a face in me
Points out all the mistakes in me
You've got a face on the inside too
Your paranoia's probably worse
I don't know what set me off first but I know what I can't stand
Everybody acts like 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
Face that watches everytime they lie
Face that laughs everytime they fall
(It watches everything)
So you know that when it's time to sink or swim
The face inside is watching you too right beneath your 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 the 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

The face inside is right beneath the skin
The face inside is right beneath the skin
The face inside is right beneath the skin

The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me
The sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back (The sun...)
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within (I feel the light betray me...)
It's like the face inside is right beneath the skin
It's like I'm paranoid looking over my back (The sun...)
It's like a whirlwind inside of my head
It's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within(I feel the light betray me...)
It's like the face inside is right beneath my skin
