"Numb & Dumb" as written by Otep Shamaya, Otep Shamaya, Jason Mcguire, Jason Mcguire, Robert Patterson, Robert Patterson, Mark Bistany and Mark Bistany....
I'm Tired Of Being Tired
Sick Of Being Sick

Erase & Escape
The Meathooks Of Reality

Lock the Door
Load Your Guns
& Pray For Nothing

(I Don't Care, I Don't Care,
I Don't Care, I Don't Care)

And Daddy's Shooting Smack
And Mama's Shooting Crack
And Teacher Is A Sec Addict
And Preacher Has A Porn Habit
And Sister's Such A Whore
And My Life Is A Bore
Take Your Vitamins
Whiten Your Teeth
Comb Your Hair
Know When To Speak

They Say Jesus Was A Masochist
But Maybe They Said, Pacifist

Oh Sweet Goddess Of Narcotics
On My Knees I Pray,
Just Give Me One More Dose
& Make It All Go Away

Make Me Completely
Numb & Dumb

(Watch Your Tone, Obey the Law,
Know When To Bend, Believe In God)

I Took His Wife Into My Mouth
Like A Slice Of Wedding Cake
I Went Back For Extra Helpings
& Then I Cleaned My Plate

Still Covered In Her Yolk,
The Wet Drug Of My Addiction
I'm Nature's Little Criminal
A Selfish Crucifixion

Oh Sweet Scarecrow In the Sky
You Have All the Answers But
We Will Never Die

Oh Sweet Goddess Of Narcotics
On My Knees I Pray,
Just Give Me One More Dose
& Make It All Go Away

Make Me Completely Numb & Dumb

I Ran Out the Front Door
The Devil's At the Back
Whispering To the Sea

& Above
A Black Feathered Sun
Drunk On Teenage Meat

I Don't Care, I Don't Care
I Don't Care, I Don't Care

Make Me Completely Numb & Dumb

Medicate & Sedate
Pass the Punishment I Need Another Fix

    General CommentI just LOVE this song!!!

    I believe it's about society bending us and killing our autonomy.

    I don't know if it's just me, but when Otep sings, she always makes a pause on completly, sounding Cum-pletly. It's awsome when at the end of the song she screams "Make me cum!!!"

    Song Meaningi'm pretty sure this song is about heroin, as well as sex with other women.
    cocaine isn't a narcotic, but heroin is, and it's probably the most used of all the narcotics.

    obviously, she refers to narcotics in this song, and needing another dose (meaning it must be a highly addictive drug). also, she implies that this drug makes her 'numb and dumb,' and that's what heroin, as well as many other narcotics, do.

    "I Took His Wife Into My Mouth
    Like A Slice Of Wedding Cake
    I Went Back For Extra Helpings
    & Then I Cleaned My Plate

    Still Covered In Her Yolk,
    The Wet Drug Of My Addiction"
    i believe this is the part where she refers to sexual acts with other women.

    anyway, that's my guess. great song. love otep. <3
