    H! Vltg3 Lyrics 03:32
    Yo, yo
    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 like to think you’re never wrong (You like to think you’re never wrong)
    You have to act like you’re someone (You have to act like you’re someone)
    You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
    You want to share what you’ve been through
    You live what you’ve learned
    
    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
    
    You like to think you’re never wrong (You like to think you’re never wrong)
    You have to act like you’re someone (You have to act like you’re someone)
    You want someone to hurt like you (You want someone to hurt like you)
    You want to share what you’ve been through
    You live what you’ve learned
    
    Yo, yo
    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else
    Takes you out of the frame
    Puts your name to shame
    What do I do to ignore them behind me?
    Do I follow my instincts blindly?
    Do I hide my pride from these bad dreams
    And give in to sad thoughts that are maddening? Do I
    Sit here and try to stand it, or do I
    Try to catch them red-handed?
    Do I trust some and get fooled by phoniness,
    Or do I trust nobody and live in loneliness?
    
    Because I can’t hold on when I’m stretched so thin
    I make the right moves but I’m lost within
    I put on my daily facade, but then
    I just end up getting hurt again.
    
    By myself (myself)
    I ask, why (myself)
    I can’t rely on myself (myself)
    I ask, why
    But in my mind I find
    I can’t rely on myself
    
    I can’t hold on
    (To what I want when I’m stretched so thin)
    It’s all too much to take in
    I can’t hold on
    (To anything watching everything spin)
    With thoughts of failure sinking in
    
    If I turn my back, I’m senseless
    But to go blindly seems defenseless
    If I hide my pride and let it all go on
    Then they’ll take from me ’till everything is gone, if I
    Let them go, I’ll be outrun, but if I
    Try to catch them, I’ll be outdone
    If I’m killed by the questions like a cancer
    Then I’ll be buried in the silence of the answer
    
    By myself (myself)
    I ask, why (myself)
    I can’t rely on myself (myself)
    I ask, why
    But in my mind I find
    I can’t rely on myself
    In my mind I find
    
    I can’t hold on
    (to what I want when I’m stretched so thin)
    It’s all too much to take in
    I can’t hold on
    (to anything watching everything spin)
    With thoughts of failure sinking in
    
    How do you think
    I’ve lost so much?
    I’m so afraid (I’m so afraid)
    I’m so afraid (I’m so afraid)
    I’m out of touch (just nice to know…)
    How you suspect (how you suspect)
    I will know what to do
    When all I know
    Is what you tell me to?
    
    Don’t you (know)
    I can’t tell you how to make it (go)
    No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
    I can’t seem to convince myself (why)
    I’m stuck on the inside
    
    Don’t you (know)
    I can’t tell you how to make it (go)
    No matter what I do, how hard I (try)
    I can’t seem to convince myself (why)
    I’m stuck on the other side
    
    I can’t hold on
    (To what I want when I’m stretched so thin)
    It’s all too much to take in
    I can’t hold on
    (To anything watching everything spin)
    With thoughts of failure sinking in
    
    I can’t hold on
    (to what I want when I’m stretched so thin)
    It’s all too much to take in
    I can’t hold on
    (to anything watching everything spin)
    With thoughts of failure sinking…
    Sometimes, sometimes, sometimes, sometimes…
    
    Hybrid
    I’ve been digging in the crates ever since I was living in space
    Before the rat race, before monkeys had human traits
    I mastered numerology, big band theology, performed lobotomies with telekinetic psychology
    Invented the mic so I can start blessing it
    Chin-checkin’ kids to make my point like an impressionist
    Many men have tried to shake us
    But I twist mic chords to double helixes to show them what I’m made of
    I buckle knees like leg braces
    cast a spell of instrumental-ness on all of you emcees who hate us
    So you can try on, leave you without a shoulder to cry on
    From now to infinite, let icon be bygones
    I fire bombs, ghostly notes haunt this
    I tried threats, but moved on to a promise
    I stomp shit with or without an accomplice
    And run the gauntlet with whoever that wants this
    
    High voltage
    This is the unforgettable sound
    High voltage
    Bringin you up and takin you down
    High voltage
    Comin at you from every side
    High voltage
    Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
    
    Akira
    I’ve put a kink in the backbones, of clones, with microphones
    Never satisfied my rhymes jones
    Spraying bright day over what you might say
    My blood types krylon, technicolor type-A
    On highways write with road rage
    pages of wind, in cages a tin, that bounce all around
    Surround sound
    Devouring the scene
    Subliminal gangrene paintings, over all the same-thing
    Sing-songs karaoke copy bullshit
    Break bones verbally with sticks and stones tactics
    Forth dimension, combat convention
    Write rhymes at ease while the track stands at attention
    Meant to put you away, with the pencil
    Pistol, official, sixteen line rhyme missile
    While you risk your all
    I pick out at your flaws
    Spitting raw blah, blah, blah you can say you saw
    
    High voltage
    This is the unforgettable sound
    High voltage
    Bringin you up and takin you down
    High voltage
    Comin at you from every side
    High voltage
    Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
    High voltage
    This is the unforgettable sound
    High voltage
    Bringin you up and takin you down
    High voltage
    Comin at you from every side
    High voltage
    Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
    
    Who’s the man, demandin’ your hand over your land rover?
    no mans bolder when he jams your plans over
    I inflict sclerosis, the most ferocious
    When I spy my third eye’s extremely high voltage
    That’s why I need ruby-quartz glasses, cause when I glance
    There’s a chance, then I might blast the masses
    Subliminals transmitted through piano
    Integrated in flow, calculated in nano
    I use skills when I need, please heed the rhyme
    I heal when I bleed when I proceed through time
    I walk through walls and the inanimate obstacles
    By inducing the reduction of cells and molecules
    I bring the knowledge you swallow a steak that’s a hologram
    I box your head, fatten your lip like collagen
    The telepath deliver verses with no postage
    Pharoah Monch, Mike Shinoda, we high voltage
    
    High voltage
    This is the unforgettable sound
    High voltage
    Bringin you up and takin you down
    High voltage
    Comin at you from every side
    High voltage
    Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
    High voltage
    This is the unforgettable sound
    High voltage
    Bringin you up and takin’ you down
    High voltage
    Comin at you from every side
    High voltage
    Making the rhythm and rhyme collide
