"Numb" as written by Alanis Nadine Morissette and Guy Sigsworth....
I feel smothered and encumbered and defeated and drawn
Disappointed, over-extended and frustrated and shaken
This over-giving , over-loving, this care taking goes on
With no chance of intermission
I'll be checked out, I'll be gone

Have to remove myself from sensation

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

I feel anxious, I am nervous I am bored
I'm overwhelmed, rather be out of my gourd

Have to remove myself from sensation

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

I am lonely, I feel hungry and unloved
I feel angry, I am livid, need a hug

Here comes the feeling
I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
Can't sit with this feeling
I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

    Lyric CorrectionDoes anyone actually LISTEN before posting...?? Keep in mind, I haven't gotten the physical copy yet, it's on its way! Hope the lyrics are inside....

    ----

    i feel smothered
    and encumbered
    and defeated
    and drawn

    disappointed
    over-extended
    and frustrated
    and shaken

    this overgiving
    over-loving
    this care-taking
    goes on

    with no chance of
    intermission
    i'll be checked out
    i'll be gone

    how to remove myself from.. sensation


    here comes a feeling
    i run from the feeling
    and reach for the drug

    can't sit with this feeling
    i'd rather be flying
    and comfortably numb


    i.. feel anxious
    i am nervous
    i am bored

    i'm.. overwhelmed
    rather be out.. of my gourd


    how to remove myself from.. sensation


    here comes a feeling
    i run from the feeling
