Everything Went Numb
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


And the story goes like this: everything went numb for the money and the guns
And every time he'd think it out: "there's nothing to worry about
Get in the van, don't deviate from the plan
If everything goes smooth then you'll walk away a rich man"
So it begins, everybody walks in
Could this be the way or the day that the underdog wins?
I think not, so I bet on the feds because the black hat men never win in the end

Ski mask (check)
Sawed off (check)
Guilty conscience, fear of death (check check check)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon what he thought
Was going to be another means to the end
The silence
The sirens
It all went down like his nightmare the night before
I don't want to hear
I don't want to be near
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean

The story doesn't end here
Don't fear for our hero ain't near the end
My friend
Let's take it back to how it all began: with a proposition
And proposition starts with a capital p
"Or at least for me" is what he said to himself
But himself ain't a lot when he's got nothing left
Of what was once a man, loved and loving
He took that trip that turns something to nothing
Right and wrong
There's not a lot a difference when you're singing that poor man's song
And that song it goes just a little like this:

Na na na

Ski mask (check)
Sawed off (check)
Guilty conscience, fear of death (check check check)
Everything went numb when he stumbled upon what he thought
Was going to be another means to the end
The silence
The sirens
It all went down like his nightmare the night before
I don't want to hear
I don't want to be near
I do what I got to do just to keep my nose clean

went to live in a strange country, half way across the world. Didn't really know anyone there. Saw that these guys were playing. went to the gig, without tickets. i was used to getting tickets at the venue. Met some pretty drunk guys who heard my accent and asked me where i was from. i'm from belgium. so they kept calling me 'Belgium' all night long. they said they were gonna come back for me to get tickets. 20mins later, as i was just giving up on getting in, they ran out 'Belgium, we got you a ticket'. They picked me up, and just ran in with me. Got really drunk, never learned their names. my shirt got ripped and i think i might've puked on it. So i had to buy a new shirt, it was one with this album cover on it. Went for waffles and weed after the show. I still have the shirt 8 years later.
Hope these guys are alright!

I still wonder what happened to the girl I was hitting it off with at warped tour 2005 in atlanta. I bet we woulda married lol. lost her when a fight broke out at the pit and we got separated so fast. never seen her again. hope she enjoyed my watermelon joint lmao.
