"Numbers" as written by Elena Veronica Tonra and Igor Alexandre Haefeli....
Take the worst situations
Make a worse situation
Follow me home, pretend you
Found somebody to mend you

I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom

Can you clean lace faces?
Black out nights and tight spaces?
We'll feel distant embraces
Scratching hands 'round my waist, yeah
I wish my mouth would still taste you

I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom

I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom

You better, you better, you better
You better make me
Me better, me better
You better make me better

You better, you better, you better
You better make me
Me better, me better
You better make me better

You better, you better, you better
You better make me
Me better, me better
You better make me better

You better, you better, you better
You better make me
Me better, me better
You better make me better

I feel numb, make me better
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb, make me better
I feel numb in this kingdom

I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb in this kingdom

    My InterpretationShe's literally describing the club scene, and hook up culture, and is deeply unsatisfied, unfulfilled, emotionally disconnected and empty, and even frustrated with the whole thing.

    "Chemically laced faces."
    Everyone is drunk, their faces dulled by the booze. Making the social interactions clumsy and unfulfilling.

    "Black out nights, and tight spaces."
    The clubs themselves. Too dark to see much, and quite cramped.

    "We'll feel distant embraces."
    We'll share something only resembling love, but a fake sub-par version.

    "Stretching hands 'round my waist, yeah."
    The 'Yeah' is sarcastic. As in 'Yay, this is as good as it gets.'

    "I wish my mouth would still taste you."
    Any sexual encounter is forgettable, unfulfilling and found wanting.

    "You better make me (feel) better."
    "Found someone to mend you."
    "I feel numb."
    This is a wish. You take yet another person home, for sex. With the hope that it will make you feel better. But it doesn't work that way. Yes you get what you want, but it doesn't fulfil you, it instead makes you feel numb.
