"Numb" as written by Mike Wengren, Dan Donegan, David Draiman and Steve Kmak....
Bleeding I'm
Crying I'm
Falling I'm

Bleeding now

Bleeding I'm
Crying I'm
Falling I'm

Bleeding now

Bleeding now I'm
Crying out I'm
Falling down and I'm
Feeling nothing like
Laughing now I'm
Stopping now I'm
Reaching out and I'm
Feeling nothing

Yeah, you have created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications
That have left me feeling nothing
I might say, you were wrong to take it from me
Left me feeling nothing

Crawling now I'm
Beaten down I'm
Tortured now and I'm
Feeling nothing like
Hunting now I'm
Stalking now I'm
Reaching out and I'm
And killing nothing

You've created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications
That have left me feeling nothing
I might say, you were wrong to take it from me
Left me feeling nothing

That are ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me
Ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me

I want this
More than you know
I need this
Give it back to me
You've created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications
That are ripping, tearing and feeding and growing inside of me

You've created a rift within me
Now there have been several complications
That are ripping, tearing
Feeding,
Growing
Ripping
Tearing
Ripping and tearing and feeding and growing inside of me

I want this
More than you know
I need this
Give it back to me

    General CommentProbably about how he was really hurt by someone so bad that he can't really feel anything for anyone anymore.

    General CommentI thought it was "I can feel you ripping and tearing"
    instead of "I can feel you ripping and teaching"
    I could be wrong though.

    General Commentthe 1st verse relates to me:
    when i 1st cut myself (bleeding now) i cried my fucking eyes out (crying out). i felt like such a failure (falling now). when i was next happy i saw the cuts on my wrist and i jus felt like i dont deserve to be happy (laughing now, stopping now). i then just started feeling nothing. i cudnt be happy, yet i cudnt cry. my mind was so full of shit and i cudnt do a thing with it.
    the chorus means to me:
    "the straw that broke the camels back" that started me cutting was that i cudnt sleep cos my mum had her bf over and they were makin a lot of noise if u know wot i mean. it kept me awak listnin to the voice that was telling me to cut, making me numb.
    the 2nd verse:
    i believe its like the making of a serial killer or sumthing (stalking, hunting) as a way of coping with the rift, or trying to take an extreme that wud cure the numbness. but as he tries to do it sumthing holds him back, but still leaving him not feeling anything exept hate 2wards the thing inside holding him back.
    i can feel u ripping...:
    blaming the person who "caused a rift"

    (bye the way i dont get those thoughts of stalkin etc. i dunno how i thought of that)

    General CommentJeez. Talk about a flash back. My best friend stole my gf once. This song REALLY sounds like me. I felt nothing but pain. and just so yall know, I drove an extra 1/4 a mile home from work everyday to see if her car was in his lawn.I was obsessed. It was seriously messed up.I kept feeling wronged as though he had taken my whole life from me. The songs personal meaning to me is about a pretty daggum similar sitiuation.

    General CommentThis song can be related to many different things, most involving struggles. It definitely sounds like a rather good description of my crystal meth use..
