The Airborne Toxic Event Numb Lyrics

I’ve been in a daze

It seems like days that I’ve been waiting

For this dream to pass

It goes so fast

It seems nothing lasts

I think I’ve lost something

Stuck here with these people

Wide awake, the crush of bodies in one space

I feel your hot breath on my tongue

I wonder where you’ve gone

And the ever-turning spinning wheel of people, places, lies

I feel the restless beat of the sleepless night to come

I just want to be numb

Hopeless these three years like smoking gears

I go from place to place just aimlessly and half asleep

Like I’m falling alone in some endless breach

I don’t know where I am

I don’t know what I’ve done

I just go over it and over it again and again and again

I can’t sleep at night

I cant breathe

But If I drink tonight, I’ll get you off my mind

And the ever-present pit I feel

I’m turning on some spinning wheel

The faces and the scenes I see

And none of it seems real to me

Just the bleary haze of the morning still to come

I just want to be numb [x5]
