"Catch-22" as written by Alecia B Moore and Linda Perry....
No sleep, no sex for you from your ex-girlfriend
I was too deep, I can't let you go and just jump in
At times I would push my feelings aside to let you feel
I'm Novocaine I'm numb and nothing's real

Like the coldest winter, I am frozen from you

[Chorus]
I was weak before now you made me so numb
I can't feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all, my baby
I'm numb, numb, numb

But the tears were silent inside you see
But the tears were silent inside you see

I laid there quiet, watched you have your way
with me
I might have cried, the tears were silent inside
you see
You called me names, made me feel like I was dumb

I didn't feel a thing and now I'm gone, gone,
gone

Like a battered child I got used to your pain
But you know its 'cause

[Chorus: x2]

Don't feel a thing, don't feel the pain
Numb, numb, numb
Said

[Chorus]

I was weak for
Said now I'm numb, numb, numb
No, no, no, no

    General CommentMakes me think of the Catch22-movie (1970). Loved that one, like these lyrics:
    "You`re damned if you do
    You`re damned if you don`t
    We`re always doing all the things
    That we say we won`t"
    'Cause sometimes doing something is just as bad as doing something else or nothing - having no choice, 'cause both options are likewise unatractive. So which one do you choose then?
