Numb

verse 1:
Nights been clear and starkissed, days are cold
a voice in the darkness tells me I'm getting old
I've been fogetting things and I get scared
I can't even fathom why I ever even cared

chorus:
And when I'm blinded by the headlights on the highway
and the silence of the red lights strikes me dumb
and when I'm deafened by the raindrops out on Broadway
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Not knowing when to turn around
and hit the ground running makes me numb

verse 2:
Spin my wheels and I mark my time
I know how it feels to live hanging on a line
Sometimes lines bend before they break
and I've come to one too many twisted ends to take

chorus:
And when I'm blinded by the headlights on the highway
and the silence of the red lights strikes me dumb
and when I'm deafened by the raindrops out on Broadway
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Not knowing when to turn around
and hit the ground running makes me numb

verse 3:
The room gets darker and I close my eyes
I count up my markers and I roll the dice
Crapped out and lost it all, and none too soon
Backed up against the wall and howling at the moon

chorus:
And when I'm blinded by the headlights on the highway
and the silence of the red lights strikes me dumb
and when I'm deafened by the raindrops out on Broadway
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Not knowing when to turn around
and hit the ground running makes me
deafened by the raindrops out on Broadway
