Lyrics

I BELIEVED ALL YOU SAID, SWALLOWED EACH WORD, IGNORED ALL THE SIGNS AND THE WARNINGS I HEARD.

I CHOSE WHAT TO SEE, AND YOU PRESENTED IT WELL, A MASQUERADE BALL OF YOUR LIFE’S SHOW AND TELL.

PROMISES KEPT, AND PROMISES BROKE, A QUICK SLIGHT OF HAND, BEHIND ALL OF THE SMOKE

THE HAZE HAS ALL CLEARED, BUT I STILL KIND OF CHOKE.

 

WE TAKE TWO STEPS BACK, WITH EACH ONE WE GAIN, WE CLEAN UP OUR MESS, BUT IT STILL LEAVES A STAIN.

YOU THINK IT WILL FADE, WITH THE PASSING OF TIME, MAYBE IN YOUR HEAD, BUT NOT SO IN MINE.

THE CONSTANT ACHES AND PAIN OF ALL THE DAMAGE SUSTAINED, HAS BUILT UP A PRESSURE, SOMEWHERE IN MY BRAIN.

THERE’S A LOOK IN MY EYES,  THAT I DON’T RECOGNIZE.

 

I’VE LOST ALL THE FEELING, LOST ,THE FEELING,

SO COLD INSIDE.

WHAT ONCE WAS A FIRE, A FLAMING DESIRE,

SOMEHOW HAS DIED.

ASH TO ASH, AND DUST TO DUST,

I SCATTER WHAT’S LEFT OF MY UNDYING TRUST,

CALLOUSED BY THE PAIN, I’LL NEVER FEEL THE SAME,

I’M NUMB

 

YOU SCREAM THAT YOU’LL CHANGE AS YOU PLEAD YOUR REGRET, IT FALLS ON DEAF EARS THAT REFUSE TO FORGET.

YOU SEEM SO SINCERE, IN YOUR TRANSIENT WAY, BUT HISTORY HAS TAUGHT ME, IT ALWAYS JUST FADES.

NOW MERCY IS FINE, BUT IT’S TIME AFTER TIME, THIS WELL OF COMPASSION HAS SIMPLY RUN DRY.

I LOOK IN YOUR EYES, RIGHT THROUGH YOU DISGUISE.

 

I’VE LOST ALL THE FEELING, LOST ,THE FEELING,

SO COLD INSIDE.

WHAT ONCE WAS A FIRE, A FLAMING DESIRE,

SOMEHOW HAS DIED.

ASH TO ASH, AND DUST TO DUST,

I SCATTER WHAT’S LEFT OF MY UNDYING TRUST,

CALLOUSED BY THE PAIN, I’LL NEVER FEEL THE SAME,

I’M NUMB

 

THE ROSES HAVE DIED, AND THE PILLOWS HAVE DRIED. DOUBT HAS SEEPED INTO THIS VACUUM INSIDE,

BLIND FAITH HAS CHANGED INTO LUCID INSIGHT. GONE ARE THE TEARS, GONE IS THE GRIEF,

GONE IS ALL CHANCE OF HOPEFUL DISBELIEF. NO TINGLE IN MY SPINE, NO “GIVE IT A LITTLE TIME,”

I’M NUMB

 

GONE ARE THE TEARS, GONE IS THE GRIEF, GONE IS ALL CHANCE OF HOPEFUL DISBELIEF.

NO TINGLE IN MY SPINE, NO “GIVE IT A LITTLE TIME,”

I’M NUMB
