I'm so alive
I'm so enlightened
I can barely survive
A night in my mind
So I've got a plan
I'm gonna find out just how boring I am
And have a good time

Cause ever since I've tried
Trying not to find
Every little meaning in my life
It's been fine, I've been cool
With my new golden rule

Numb is the new deep
Done with the old me
And talk is the same cheap it's been

Is there a God?
Why is he waiting?
Don't you think of it odd
When he knows my address
And look at the stars
Don't they remind you just how feeble we are?
Well it used to, I guess

Cause ever since I've tried
Trying not to find
Every little meaning in my life
It's been fine, I've been cool
With my new golden rule

Numb is the new deep
Done with the old me
And talk is the same cheap it's been

I'm a new man
I wear a new cologne
And you wouldn't know me
If your eyes were closed
I know what you'll say
This won't last longer than the rest of the day?
But you're wrong this time
You're wrong

Numb is the new deep
Done with the one mee
I'm over the analyzing
Tonight

Stop trying to figure it out

Deep will only bring you down
You know I used to be the backporch poet
With a book of rhymes always
Open, knowing all the time, I'm probably
Never gonna find the perfect rhyme
For 'heavier things'
