"Numb" as written by and Brian Leseny Fennell....
When I woke up, I couldn't feel my arms
They felt as if they weren't my own
I don't remember if I really slept at all
I might have been out building walls

How can I stand and hold up this great wall
And if it falls then I might blow away
What's wrong, can't he see how hard I've tried?
I'm numb inside, I'm done tonight

This morning found me out of action and alone
I'd lost command of all I thought I owned
My friends all called me to make sure I was well
But I never made it to my phone

How can I stand and hold up this great wall
And if it falls then I might blow away
What's wrong, can't he see how hard I've tried?
I'm numb inside, I'm done tonight, yeah, yeah, yeah

All this potential has messed up my whole day
A storm of times and overlapping things
This information has left me overwhelmed
I've no idea where I should go

How can I stand and hold up this great wall
If it falls and I might blow away
What's wrong, can't he see how hard I've tried?
I'm done tonight

    General CommentLove this song ^^
    Clearly, this song is about someone who has been put under a great deal of strain. He shows such potential for greatness, that those around him expect him to be able to do ONLY great things. They scrutinize what he does, and pushes him harder if they think that he isn't living up to his full potential. He's so tired from trying so hard, that in the end he finally cracks and stands up for himself, now broken and defeated and refuses to listen to those who pushed him so hard, and just gives up.
