Running From My Shadow (Shinoda Mike)

Wanna know where I don't go When it goes from OK to a oh no When it goes from hi five to a low blow When it goes from all five to a solo Lemme tell you what you don't know I been down so low I was Looking for something but denying that I found it There's an elephant sitting in the room And I can't find another way to tiptoe around it I been doing greater good for a long time But I can't find any other way to give now I been putting myself on the sideline And it's been time so I'm saying can I live now There are times when I kick myself Say I'm not sick but I can't get well Say I got this while I chase my tail As if they can't tell I'm running from my shadow Running from my shadow but it's still there chasing me down I'll never win the battle Never win the battle and I should have known it by now Just when I think I've found the end ohhh I'm going back around again ohhh Running from my shadow Running from my shadow but it's still there chasing me down Light side's got a dark side to it Daytime flows into night like fluid The yin and the yang with a curved line through it And none of it's illuminating why I do it Maybe I didn't want to chase what was not right Maybe I didn't want to face you were offsides Thinking I was far away from a crossed line But I was giving soft praise to a hard lie There are things that you say and you don't say My tongue's gotten real tired of me biting it 'Cause I keep on following the wrong way Time's come and I can't keep denying it There are times when I kick myself Say I'm not sick but I can't get well Say I got this while I chase my tail As if they can't tell I'm running from my shadow Running from my shadow but it's still there chasing me down I'll never win the battle Never win the battle and I should have known it by now Just when I think I've found the end ohhh I'm going back around again ohhh Running from my shadow Running from my shadow but it's still there chasing me down I love you but I know I gotta let you go Dancing with the devil cause she's all I've ever known Wanted to pretend that this time was the end Sorry but I guess I gotta let you down again Again Again Running from my shadow now my shadow is my only friend Running from my shadow But it's still there chasing me down Running from my shadow Running from my shadow but it's still there chasing me down
