Why does every street here look the same?
Yet there's so many here, see their faces?
They're glad they came.
A city sucking all the life in me.
So I'll be using you to get what I need.
It's not so typical so hypocritical for me to act this way
But Novocaine sets in and I pretend the real is fake.
See the match and strike up this band to play.
The music screams at me but I don't hear a single thing.

Oh Novocaine
Just get it out of me
It's getting hard to breathe in here
I'm going insane
So in the state I'm in
I give into almost anything.

I'm not the monster that you claim I am.
If I could set some light in here
Then I could make you understand.
It's not this atmosphere that makes you become
what you hate the most
cause being dead is feeling numb.

Oh Novocaine
Just get it out of me
It's getting hard to breathe in here
I'm going insane
So in the state I'm in
I give into almost anything.
Novocaine.
This is the way I feel.
It's just another vicious wheel.

Spinnin Spinnin Spinnin in anxiety.
The weight of it can crush you
and steal your dignity.
There's light here at this tunnel's end.
All I can do is recommend,
don't give it away.
Do you feel something?
Well let the light in.

I'll keep on searching here cause I think I could.
Just get me off the streets of hollow Hollywood.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems in place.
All systems systems....
Sensation, Separation, Isolation, this foundation,
worn by countless obligations. Lies and desparation

All systems in place...
Sensation, Separation, Isolation, this foundation,
worn by countless obligations, lies and desparation

All systems in place..
Sensation, Separation, Isolation, this foundation,
worn by countless obligations, lies and desparation

    General CommentThis song is available only as a bonus track on iTunes from the album Singularity and also features the artist Kenna on vocals. It's one of the most different tracks Mae has done, in my opinion.

    General CommentThis song is truly amazing. It is so true of LA, and I am sure it can be said about most anywhere. I love the Kenna vocals in this. I truly truly love this song.

    General Commenti remember seeing these guys in concert and they definitely said

    If I could "shed" some light in here
    Then I could make you understand.

    not

    If I could set some light in here
    Then I could make you understand.
