  • Comments: This is the first non-experimental AMV I made back in 2001. Not much to say, except that the footage pretty much follows the lyrics. The song was something I related to, so it holds an amount of importance to me. I would really love to redo this one, as it is actually one of my favorites, in spite of the quality, but I think I just might keep this as a reminder of how far I've come. Which, I'll admit, isn't that far yet.


    "By Myself" by Linkin' Park

    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]

    [x2]
    I ask why, but in my mind
    I find I canít rely on myself

    [Chorus:]
    I canít hold on
    To what I want when Iím stretched so thin
    Itís all too much to take in
    I canít hold on
    To anything watching everything spin
    With thoughts of failure sinking in

    If I
    Turn my back Iím defenseless
    And to go blindly seems senseless
    If I hide my pride and let it all go on then theyíll
    Take from me Ďtill everything is gone
    If I let them go Iíll be outdone
    But if I try to catch them Iíll be outrun
    If Iím killed by the questions like a cancer
    Then Iíll be buried in the silence of the answer
    by myself [myself]

    [x2]
    I ask why, but in my mind
    I find I canít rely on myself

    [Chorus]

    How do you think Iíve lost so much
    I'm so afraid that I'm out of touch
    How do you expect... I will know what to do
    When all I know Is what you tell me to

    [x2]
    Donít you know
    I canít tell you how to make it go
    No matter what I do, how hard I try
    I canít seem to convince myself why
    Iím stuck on the outside

    [Chorus x2]
