Numb Submit Correct Lyrics

One track mind like a gold fish
Stuck inside my petri-dish
I can't breath and I can't smile
This better be worth my while

I feel numb most of the time
The lower I get the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine
Looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice, burn, burn, burn, bright

Forgo family, forgo friends
It's how it started, how it ends
I can open up and cry
'Cause I've been silent all my life

I feel numb most of the time
The lower I get the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine
Looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice, burn, burn, burn, bright
Burn, burn, burn, bright

Ooh, I get dark, oh, and I'm in hell
I need a friend, ooh, but I can't yell
Yeah, I'm no good, no good to anyone
'Cause all I care about is being number one

Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice
Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice

Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice
Shine, looking for the golden light
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice, sacrifice

I feel numb most of the time
The lower I get the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine

And I light up the sky
Stars that burn the brightest
Fall so fast and pass you by
Cough like empty lighters

I feel numb most of the time
The lower I get the higher I'll climb
And I will wonder why
I got dark only to shine

And I light up the sky
Stars that burn the brightest
Fall so fast and pass you by
Spark like empty lighters
