Numb




DON’T STAY
Sometimes I
Need to remember just to breathe
Sometimes I
Need you to stay away from me
Sometimes I’m
In disbelief, I didn’t know
Somehow I
Need you to go

Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay

Sometimes I
Feel like I trusted you too well
Sometimes I
Just feel like screaming at myself
Sometimes I’m
In disbelief, I didn’t know
Somehow I
Need to be alone

Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay

I don’t need you anymore
I don’t want to be ignored
I don’t need one more day
Of you wasting me away
I don’t need you anymore
I don’t want to be ignored
I don’t need one more day
Of you wasting me away
With no apologies

Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
What you were changing me into
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay
Forget our memories
Forget our possibilities
Take all your faithlessness with you
Just gimme myself back and
Don’t stay
Don’t stay
Don’t stay


SOMEWHERE I BELONG
(When this began)
I had nothing to say
And I’d get lost in the nothingness inside of me
(I was confused)
And I’d let it all out to find
That I’m not the only person with these things in mind
(Inside of me)
But all the vacancy, the words revealed
Is the only real thing that I’ve got left to feel
(Nothing to lose)
Just stuck, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

I wanna heal
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve held so long
(Erase all the pain ‘til it’s gone)
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

And I’ve got nothing to say
I can’t believe I didn’t fall right down on my face
(I was confused)
Looking everywhere, only to find
That it’s not the way I had imagined it all in my mind
(So what am I)
What do I have but negativity
‘Cause I can’t justify the way everyone is looking at me
(Nothing to lose)
Nothing to gain, hollow and alone
And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own

I wanna heal
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve held so long
(Erase all the pain ‘til it’s gone)
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I will never know
Myself until I do this on my own
And I will never feel
Anything else until my wounds are healed
I will never be
Anything ‘til I break away from me
I will break away
I’ll find myself today

I wanna heal (heal)
I wanna feel what I thought was never real
I wanna let go of the pain I’ve held so long
(Erase all the pain ‘til it’s gone)
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I’m close to something real
I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong

I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong
I wanna heal
I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong
Somewhere I belong


LYING FROM YOU (2:55)
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
Stealin’ 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 turnin’ back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No, no turnin’ back now)
Lemme take back my life
I’d rather be all alone
(No turnin’ back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No, no turnin’ back now)
The very worst part of you
Is me

I remember what they taught to me
Remember condescending talk of who I outta be
Remember listenin’ to all of that and this again
So I pretended up a person who was fittin’ in
And now you think this person really is me
And I’m trying to bend the truth
But, the more I push, the more I’m pullin’ away
‘Cause I’m lying my way from you

(No, no turnin’ back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No, no turnin’ back now)
Lemme take back my life
I’d rather be all alone
(No turnin’ back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No, no turnin’ 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 runnin’ from me
Like this
This isn’t what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you runnin’ from me
Like this (like this)
This isn’t what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you runnin’ from me
Like this (like this)
This isn’t what I wanted to be
I never thought that what I said
Would have you runnin’ from me
Like this

You

(No turnin’ back now)
I wanna be pushed aside
So let me go
(No, no turnin’ back now)
Lemme take back my life
I’d rather be all alone
(No turnin’ back now)
Anywhere on my own
‘Cause I can see
(No, no turnin’ back now)
The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me



HIT THE FLOOR (2:44)
There are just too many times that people have tried to look inside of me
Wonderin’ what I think of you and I protect you out of courtesy
Too many times that I’ve held on when I needed to push away
Afraid to say what was on my mind, afraid to say what I need to say
Too many things that you’ve said about me when I’m not around
You think havin’ the upper hand means you gotta keep puttin’ me down?
But I’ve had too many stand-offs with you, it’s about as much as I can stand
So I’m waitin’ until the upper hand is mine

(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Watch it drop
(Making you’re heart stop)
Just before
You hit the floor
(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Missed your shot
(Making you’re heart stop)
You think you won
And then it’s all gone

So many people like me put so much trust in all your lies
So concerned with what you think to just say what we feel inside
So many people like me walk on eggshells all day long
All I know is that all I want is to feel like I’m not stepped on
There are so many things you say that make me feel you crossed the line
What goes up will surely fall and I’m countin’ down the time
‘Cause I’ve had so many stand-offs with you, it’s about as much as I can stand
So I’m waitin’ until the upper hand is mine

(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Watch it drop
(Making you’re heart stop)
Just before
You hit the floor
(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Missed your shot
(Making you’re heart stop)
You think you won
And then it’s all gone
And then it’s all gone
And then it’s all gone (gone)
And then it’s all gone (gone)
Now it’s all gone

I know I’ll never trust a single thing you say
You knew your lies would divide us but you lied anyway
And all the lies have got you floating up above us all
But what goes up has got to fall

(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Watch it drop
(Making you’re heart stop)
Just before
You hit the floor
(One minute you’re on top)
The next you’re not
Missed your shot
(Making you’re heart stop)
You think you won
And then it’s all gone
And then it’s all gone
And then it’s all gone (gone)
And then it’s all gone (gone)
Now it’s all gone

EASIER TO RUN (3:24)
It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Then face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I’ve kept locked away no one can ever see
Wounds so deep, they never show, they never go away
Like moving pictures in my head, for years and years they’ve played

If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made, I would
If I could stand up and take the blame, I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave, I would
If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made, I would
If I could stand up and take the blame, I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Then face all this pain here all alone

Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
And never moving forward so there’d never be a past

If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made, I would
If I could stand up and take the blame, I would
If I could take all the shame to the grave, I would
If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made, I would
If I could stand up and take the blame, I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don’t feel misplaced
Is so much simpler than change

It’s easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It’s so much easier to go
Then face all this pain here all alone

It’s easier to run
If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made

It’s easier to go
If I could change, I would, take back the pain, I would
Retrace every wrong move that I made, I would
If I could stand up and take the blame, I would
I would take all my shame to the grave

FAINT (2:42)
I am a little bit of loneliness, a little bit of disregard
Handful of complaints but I can’t help the fact that everyone can see these scars
I am what I want you to want, what I want you to feel
But it’s like no matter what I do, I can’t convince you to just believe this is real
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I’m not, but I’ll be here ‘cause you’re all that I got

I can’t feel
The way I did before
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored
Time won’t heal
This damage anymore
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored

I am a little bit insecure, a little unconfident
‘Cause you don’t understand, I do what I can but sometimes I don’t make sense
I am what you never wanna say, but I’ve never had a doubt
It’s like no matter what I do, I can’t convince you for once just to hear me out
So I let go watching you turn your back like you always do
Face away and pretend that I’m not, but I’ll be here ‘cause you’re all that I got

I can’t feel
The way I did before
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored
Time won’t heal
This damage anymore
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored

No
Hear me out now
You’re gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now
Hear me out now
You’re gonna listen to me
Like it or not
Right now

I can’t feel
The way I did before
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored

I can’t feel
The way I did before
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored
Time won’t heal
This damage anymore
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored

I can’t feel
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored
Time won’t heal
Don’t turn your back on me
I won’t be ignored


FIGURE.09 (3:17)
Nothin’ ever stops
All these thoughts and the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happenin’
It’s like nothin’ I could do would distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
‘Cause from the infinite words I could say
I put all the pain you gave to me on display
But didn’t realize, instead of settin’ it free
I took what I hated and made it a part of me

It never goes away
Never goes away

And now
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be right here
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be my fear
I can’t separate
Myself from what I’ve done
Giving up a part of me
I’ve let myself become you

Hearin’ your name, the memories come back again
I remember when it started happenin’
I’d see you in every thought I had and then
The thoughts slowly found words attached to them
And I knew as they escaped away
I was committin’ myself to ‘em and every day
I regret sayin’ those things, ‘cause now I see
That I took what I hated and made it a part of me

It never goes away
Never goes away

And now
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be right here
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be my fear
I can’t separate
Myself from what I’ve done
Giving up a part of me
I’ve let myself become you

It never goes away
Never goes away
It never goes away
It never goes away

Get away from me
Gimme my space back, you gotta just (go)
Everything comes down to memories of (you)
I’ve kept it in but now I’m lettin’ you (know)
I’ve let you go
So get away from me
Gimme my space back, you gotta just (go)
Everything comes down to memories of (you)
I’ve kept it in but now I’m lettin’ you (know)
I’ve let you go

And now
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be right here
You’ve become a part of me
You’ll always be my fear
I can’t separate
Myself from what I’ve done
Giving up a part of me
I’ve let myself become you
I’ve let myself become you
I’ve let myself become lost
Inside these thoughts of you
Giving up a part of me
I’ve let myself become you

BREAKING THE HABIT (3:16)
Memories consume
Like opening the wound
I’m picking me apart again
You all assume
I’m safe, here in my room
Unless I try to start again

I don’t want to be the one the battles always choose
‘Cause inside, I realize that I’m the one confused

I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don’t know why I instigate
And say what I don’t mean
I don’t know how I got this way
I know it’s not all right
So I’m breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit tonight

Clutching my cure
I tightly lock the door
I try to catch my breath again
I hurt much more
Than any time before
I had no options left again

I don’t want to be the one the battles always choose
‘Cause inside, I realize that I’m the one confused

I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
I don’t know why I instigate
And say what I don’t mean
I don’t know how I got this way
I’ll never be all right
So I’m breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit tonight

I’ll paint it on the walls
‘Cause I’m the one at fault
I’ll never fight again
And this is how it ends

I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream
But now I have some clarity
To show you what I mean
I don’t know how I got this way
I’ll never be all right
So I’m breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit tonight


FROM THE INSIDE (2:55)
I don’t know who to trust, no surprise
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts sift through dust and the lies

Trying not to break, but I’m so tired of this deceit
Every time I try to make myself get back upon my feet
All I ever think about is this, all the tiring time between
And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me

(I) take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear, for the last time
I won’t trust myself with you

Tension is building inside steadily
(Everyone feels so far away from me)
Heavy thoughts forcing their way out of me

Trying not to break, but I’m so tired of this deceit
Every time I try to make myself get back upon my feet
All I ever think about is this, all the tiring time between
And how trying to put my trust in you just takes so much out of me

(I) take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear, for the last time
I won’t trust myself with you

I won’t waste myself on you
You
You
Waste myself on you
You
You

I’ll take everything from the inside
And throw it all away
‘Cause I swear, for the last time
I won’t trust myself with you

Everything from the inside
And just throw it all away
‘Cause I swear, for the last time
I won’t trust myself with you
You
You


NOBODY’S LISTENING (2:58)
(Comin’ at you)

Yo, peep the style and the kids checkin’ for it
The number one question is: how could you ignore it?
We drop right back in the cut over basement tracks
With raps that got you backin’ this up like (rewind that)
We’re just rollin’ with the rhythm
Rise from the ashes of stylistic division
With these non-stop lyrics of life-livin’
Not to be forgotten but still unforgivin’
But in the meantime there are those
Who wanna talk this and that, so I suppose
That it gets to a point where feelin’s gotta get hurt
And get dirty with the people spreadin’ the dirt
(It goes)

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening
Call to you so clearly
But you don’t want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger held in my chest
And everything left’s a waste of time
I hate my rhymes
(But hate everyone else’s more)
I’m ridin’ on the back of this pressure
Guessin’ that it’s better I can’t keep myself together
Because all of this stress gave me somethin’ to write on
The pain gave me somethin’ I could set my sights on
You’ll never forget the blood, sweat and tears
The uphill struggle over years
The fear and trash talkin’ and the people it was to
And the people that started it just like you

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening
Call to you so clearly
But you don’t want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat and tears
Nothin’ to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain, head full of stress
Handful of anger held in my chest
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat and tears
Nothin’ to gain, everything to fear
Heart full of pain (heart full of pain)

Try to give you warning
But everyone ignores me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening
Call to you so clearly
But you don’t want to hear me
(Told you everything loud and clear)
But nobody’s listening

I got a heart full of pain, head full of stress
(Nobody’s listening)
Handful of anger held in my chest
(Nobody’s listening)
Uphill struggle, blood, sweat and tears
(Nobody’s listening)
Nothin’ to gain, everything to fear
(Nobody’s listening)

(Comin’ at you from every side)


SESSION (2:24)
Instrumental


NUMB (3:09)
I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes

(Caught in the undertow, we’re just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, we’re just caught in the undertow)

I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me?
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart
Right in front of you

(Caught in the undertow, we’re just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, we’re just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me, with someone disappointed in you

I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you

I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)
I’ve become so numb
I can’t feel you there
(I’m tired of being what you want me to be)
