Numb again, just like before.

Nothing's changed since then.

Torn away from all that matters to me,

And unable to feel anything.

Only this time it's so much worse.

This time I have no one at my side.

No loyal friend has even been there for me.

They all give up the fight and leave me behind,

Just when I need them most.

It's the same old story over and over again,

Only this time I know the ending.

I'm afriad to what I know will happen,

If history will repeat itself once more.

I prayed and prayed for a miracle,

And it took me too long to find one.

But by the time I'd realized where the miracle was,

It was ripped right out of my hands.

Numb again, just like before.

Seperated from all that I love,

And forced to face myself alone.

I used to feel everything in the world,

And jump at the sight of my shadow.

Now I don't feel anything,

And don't react to things I should.

Strike me once and I'll hardly notice.

Strike me twice and I will embrace the pain.

Pain is my only friend.

It has been here with me throughout the years,

Never leaving my side.

Pain is all that I have to make me feel anything.

Shoot me down as I stand,

Arms open, embracing the pain and bloodshed.

What's the use of dying,

When you feel dead already?

Too numb to feel real.

Too numb to be alive.

I feel like I shoulnd't be alive in the state I'm in.

Like I'm a walking corpse.

Let my blood be the medicine.

Let the red tears fall,

Allowing me to feel once more.

Let it be the sacrifice.

Someone wake me from this nightmare.

Bring me back to life once more.

Or at least, let me sleep in peace.

Let this nightmare come to an end at last,

So I can at least enjoy this dream.

Happiness is an empty dream,

Fading from my memory.

Love is a smothered flame,

That has run out of fuel.

Each emotion has drifted away from me,

Like clouds in the wind.

Impossible to touch, and impossible to stop.

I have to break free from this tightening grip.

I'm too numb to see past the dark.

Call out my name and break this spell upon me.

Say the magic words to finally end this curse once and for all.

Let me feel again.
