American Football – Uncomfortably Numb Lyrics

Uncomfortably Numb Lyrics by American Football


Sensitivity deprived
I can’t feel a thing inside
I blamed my father in my youth
Now as a father, I blame the booze
I have become uncomfortably numb

Who’s ugly side is the ugliest
Sensitivity deprived
All my sympathy prescribed
Who’s hands are tied to a contorsionist
I used to struggle in my youth
Now I’m used to struggling for two
I have become uncomfortably numb

The lessons
The lessons
Are so much
Are so much
Less obvious
The further you get from home
The further I get from home
How will you exist
How will I exist
Without consequence
I’ll let you know

We were gentle to begin
Then I pushed you around to break you in
Now whenever I try to be clear with you
I only end up feeling see-through
I’ve tried, but you’ve won
Comotose, like father like son

The lessons
The lessons
Are so much
Are so much
Less obvious
The further you get from home
The further I get from home
How will you exist
How will I exist
I don’t want to know
Blacked out, protected
I just want you home
I’ll make new friends in the ambulance
