What’s the point of all the questions that I ask if the answers are just something I can’t grasp?
Now I think I understand everything.

“Sit, back, relax, don’t bat your eyes. I’ll tell you what to think.”
After all that’s how it works today.
Now turn off so I don’t drown in Media-crity.
Or turn it up and start the masquerade.
I'm blind, deaf, and dumb.
I’m already numb to these lies you spill over me.

I have never been so sure of what I’m unsure of.
I don’t believe a single word you say. The freedom’s not in just your words, but who is listening.
Now turn it off before I go insane.

I'm blind, deaf, and dumb.
I’m already numb to these lies that come easily.
I'm lined up and dumb
I'm already numb to these lies
you spill over me

And I, have had it up to here.
And I, don’t want to be around when everyone is thinking the same thing. Please don’t agree, that’s the beauty, you can take it or leave it.
I’m blind and I’m deaf and I’ve lost my point of view.
I can’t try to ignore you anymore.
anymore

one, two, one, two, three, four
I'm blind, deaf, and dumb.
I’m already numb to these lies you spill over me.

    General CommentI am surprised that no one has posted anything about this band yet!.. All of Eighty-Six's songs are really catchy and run parallel to most people's lives. This one is about a person who's been trying to make excuses for his gf's lying habits, but there are so many that he's become oblivious to her telling the truth ever, and he's just become used to her being a lie. "I have never been so sure of what I'm unsure of." - He knows exactly that she's lying, but he can't tell what.
