  • I keep on running backwards, I keep on losing faith
    I thought I had the answers, I thought I knew the way
    My brother said be patient, my mother held my hand
    I don't what I'm chasing, I don't know who I am

    Woke up this morning holding my head
    Thinking last night is one of regret
    Washing off the bad decisions, the blurry vision
    The clues that I'm still a mess
    Spitting out the taste I have in my mouth
    Knowing what this all is really about
    Knowing there's an explanation, an expiration
    I gotta figure shit out

    And they're asking me if I can see the darkness down below
    And I know it's true, I say I do, and half the time I don't
    Maybe I can't make what it may take to leave this thing behind
    But I shut my eyes and cross each line and every time

    I keep on running backwards, I keep on losing faith
    I thought I had the answers, I thought I knew the way
    My brother said be patient, my mother held my hand
    I don't what I'm chasing, I don't know who I am

    Waking in the dead of night, I can't sleep
    Sleeping in the light of day for like weeks
    Reality was out of focus, I could be hopeless
    Instead I gritted my teeth
    I didn't have the patience left to explain
    Didn't wanna wait while nobody came
    I know the path ahead's uneven
    But while I'm breathing
    I have to make my own lane

    And they're asking me if I can see the darkness down below
    And I know it's true, I say I do, and half the time I don't
    Maybe I can't make what it may take to leave this thing behind
    But I shut my eyes and cross each line and every time

    I keep on running backwards, I keep on losing faith
    I thought I had the answers, I thought I knew the way
    My brother said be patient, my mother held my hand
    I don't what I'm chasing, I don't know who I am

    So I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
    I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
    So I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, oh-oh
    I make it up as I go, as I go

    Keep on running backwards, I keep on losing faith
    I thought I had the answers, I thought I knew the way
    My brother said be patient, my mother held my hand
    I don't what I'm chasing, I don't know who I am

    So I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
    I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, ooh-oh
    So I make it up as I go, ooh-oh, oh-oh
    I make it up as I go, as I go Writer/s: Brad Delson, Kristine Meredith Flaherty, Mike Shinoda
