When I pretend everything is what I want it to be, I look exactly like what you had always wanted to see
When I pretend I can forget about the criminal I am, stealing second after second just 'cause I know I can
But I can't pretend this is the way it'll stay, I'm just trying to bend the truth
I can't pretend I'm who you want me to be, so I'm lying my way from you

(No, no turning back now)
I want to be pushed aside, so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life, I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own because I can see
(Naw, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you is me

I remember what they taught to me, remember condescending talk of who I ought to be
Remember listening to all of that and this again, so I pretended up a person who was fitting in
And now you think this person really is me, and I'm trying to bend the truth
The more I push, the more I'm pulling away 'cause I'm lying my way from you

(No, no turning back now)
I want to be pushed aside, so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life, I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own because I can see
(Naw, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you, the very worst part of you is me

This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this
This isn't what I wanted to be, I never thought that what I said would have you running from me
Like this

You (no turning back now)
I want to be pushed aside, so let me go
(No, no turning back now)
Let me take back my life, I'd rather be all alone
(No turning back now)
Anywhere on my own because I can see
(Naw, no turning back now)
The very worst part of you, the very worst part of you is me

Trivia:

Mike and Joe's studio equipment was installed in the back of a tour bus during the summer of 2001, and they put it to good use. Mike came up with the intro sample and chorus music for the song during an overnight bus drive during Ozzfest (trying to record guitar in a moving bus can be very sloppy). But months later, in the studio at NRG, everything got cleaned up, replayed and put together right.
