    Papercut (Live) Lyrics 03:12
    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 that 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 beneath 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
    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
    A face that 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
    
    [x2]
    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
    
    The face inside is right beneath your skin [x3]
    
    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
    
    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
    
    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 I can’t stop what I’m hearing within
    It’s like I can’t stop what I’m hearing within
    It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin
    Forfeit the game / Before somebody else
    Takes you out of the frame / Puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face / You can’t run the race
    The pace is too fast / You just won’t last
    
    You love the way I look at you
    While taking pleasure in the awful things you put me through
    You take away if I give in
    My life
    My pride is broken
    
    You love the things I say I’ll do -
    The way I’ll hurt myself again just to get back at you
    You take away when I give in
    My life
    My pride is broken
    
    Chorus:
    You like to think you’re never wrong
    You want to act like you’re someone
    You want someone to hurt like you
    You want to share what you’ve been through
    (You live what you learn)
    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
