"Numb" as written by Nigel Parrington and Mark Christopher Lee....
I'm in surgery
It?s an emergency
It just occurred to me
Ironically I caught a disease

They take a piece of me
Enjoy the scenery
Countin? back from ten
But I will never fall asleep

I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb

So let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

I'm writin? pop songs
Done it for so long
Sometimes I dream about a chorus
That's so clever, it?s dumb

And now they're tellin? me
The music industry
You can stay if you behave
Be a good boy, go to sleep

But I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb

So let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

?Cause I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb

So let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

So if you're askin? me
What you mean to me
This is a dream to me
A theme for me, I gotta believe

In what you're tellin? me
In what you're sellin? me
In what's compellin? me to feel
The only reason I need

Here comes the drum beat
I'm movin? my feet
The only reason I need
The only reason I need

And a guitar chord
I feel so sure
The only reason I need
The only reason I need

I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb

So let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb
I refuse to go numb

So let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

Let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

Let the music come
Let the music come
Let the music come

    General CommentThe music industry/record labels decide to shelf artists when they don't want to them to keep writing songs, because of contracts this basically means the artist can no longer write sell song until the record company allows them to again.

    It seems in this song, they are trying to make Ben Lee just sit and not write any songs, but...he is fighting back and saying I don't want to just fall asleep and be forgotten, I'm not going to change the style of songs, I'm me and that's my decision.

    It's a great song, and I think it has a good message in it. Don't change for other people, make sure you are living life for yourself and making your own decision about who you are.
