    Papercut (Live from the BBC) Lyrics 03:08
    Crawling in my skin
    These wounds they will not heal
    Fear is how I fall
    Confusing what is real
    
    There’s something inside me
    That pulls beneath the surface
    Consuming, confusing
    This lack of self control I fear
    Is never ending, controlling
    
    I can’t seem to find myself again
    My walls are closing in
    (Without a sense of confidence)
    (I’m convinced that there’s)
    (Just too much pressure to take)
    I’ve felt this way before so insecure
    
    Crawling in my skin
    These wounds they will not heal
    Fear is how I fall
    Confusing what is real
    
    Discomfort, endlessly has pulled
    Itself upon me distracting, reacting
    Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
    It’s haunting how I can’t seem
    
    To find myself again
    My walls are closing in
    (Without a sense of confidence)
    (I’m convinced that there’s)
    (Just too much pressure to take)
    I’ve felt this way before so insecure
    
    Crawling in my skin
    These wounds they will not heal
    Fear is how I fall
    Confusing what is real
    
    Crawling in my skin
    These wounds they will not heal
    Fear is how I fall
    Confusing, confusing what is real
    
    There’s something inside me
    That pulls beneath the surface
    Consuming
    (Confusing what is real)
    This lack of self control I fear
    Is never ending, controlling
    (Confusing what is real)
    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
    It’s 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 hearing me / right underneath my skin
    
    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
    
    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 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 they close their 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
    
    The sun goes down
    I feel the light betray me
