Numb 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...

    I'm pretty its about the cycle of addiction. She sings from two perspectives. The addict side, which feels numb most of the time, forgone family and friends,is no help to anyone, etc. Then there is the sobriety side which wants to shine, is over the top positive and as hard as she tries, the cycle still repeats...one line suggesting the brightest stars fall the fastest. Like no matter how long and hard you've worked the cycle must repeat, like a balance....weather addiction, life emotion or stardom, the overall message is the cycle of something and its yin and yang;the good leads to the bad and the bad leads to the good. Always and no matter what, one paves the way for the other. It's a great song, one of my favorites!

    I believe this song is talking about how Marina feels numb, I believe it's about cutting and the pain she feels inside and she feels numb when she hurts herself.
