Paul Dempsey - Safety In Numbness

rate me

You've got glue in your feathers

What brought you to this

A flightless bird surrounded by red-handed kids

In their borrowed black sheeps' clothes

Yeah everybody's in on the joke...

So practice your boredom

Look a thousand times removed

'Cause only a freak would sing in a crowded waiting room

They would turn you out in the cold

Now that everybody's in on the joke...

Are you missing a stranger that you might have loved?

Do you feel that there's something you don't feel enough?

There's a perfectly good poison for the perfectly numb

If you want some...

But naming the feeling

Just kills the charade

And if flowers should bloom upon your wallpaper face

It'll follow you everywhere you go

Now everybody's in on the joke.

Desire only burns and

Envy's always green

A mind can only race and a heart can only beat

There's these towering neon signs we must uphold

To keep out the blackness

And run with the blue

Now only a fool would sing as if he's telling the truth

Kid, just swallow down that lump in your throat

Because everybody's in on the joke

Are you missing a stranger that you might have loved?

Do you feel that there's something you don't feel enough?

There's a perfectly good poison...

Are you missing a stranger that you might have loved?

Do you feel that there's something you don't feel enough?

There's a perfectly good poison for the perfectly numb

If you want some...
