lyrics

Let me check your vital signs: heart rate

Beat per minute heart racing

Fear permitted: arm’s length

Hit ‘em with another kiss of the calm tranq

Sanctification an operation

Pain be a doctor we often hate him

Sick ever since that combination:

Death mixed in with the consummation

Now ever since, it’s anesthesia

Numb to the pain of refinement

Woke up and I saw all the evil

And I wanted to return to my blindness

In the land where the dark is immersive

How hard is a heart of a person?

We try to open up, somebody call a surgeon 

We wanna come back to the heart of worship

But the dark alluring

Harder to swim in a stronger current

Hotter to live now the water burning

But I feel nothing. “Nada” burden. Not a burden

Feeling no hunger

‘Cause I am numb to the wheel of my comfort

This my diversion a dime to a dozen

I never met death but I flirt with the cousin

First will come love and then marriage

Sleep is the lust you inherit

You cannot stay in your sleep as a means of resolving your flaws
 Expecting involvement of God

I want to wake up

I really love sleep, now I want to break up

It’s not you, it’s me

Sleep be the cousin of the eulogy

I can see the stars up in eyes 
 I can hear Sinatra in my mind

Fly me to the moon, and let me play among the sky

Orion, Ursa Minor, Gemini: constellations die

Three two one. Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

Like three two one. Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

It’s not you, it’s me. Sleep be the cousin of the eulogy

Now obviously, He’s real within me

It doesn’t really mean that I feel Him in me

Feeling envy when I see devotion 

Of a brethren steady and he feel emotion

Feet be coasting Spirit leads him 

Walk on the land and the sea and ocean

Here I am. I ain’t fronting

I can’t stand that I stand for nothing

I can’t help that my own two feet

Slip more frequent than they move me

When I fall and I hurt, I don’t want to move now

The true definition of “breaking new ground”

What you looking at?

You never seen a man that was broken? 

You really want to act like you don’t know the half
 And your life is a basket is roses?

You really want to quote me a passage

Claim that you pray that it passes and never call once?
 You think I’m convinced of your sadness?

Brother, you just as numb.

I feel nothing. You don’t either. 

We’re just talking, we ain’t speaking

Both eyes open, we both sleeping 

We want freedom, we won’t reach it 

We're scared of the dark

Life is a surgeon: tear us apart

We don’t want pain, and we want to feel numb

Now we could never feel love


I can see the stars up in eyes 

I can hear Sinatra in my mind

Fly me to the moon, and let me play among the sky

Orion, Ursa Minor, Gemini: constellations die

Three two one. Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

Like three two one. Let the whole body go numb. Let the whole body go numb

It’s not you, it’s me. Sleep be the cousin of the eulogy
