One nine nine three
Soul Assassins come to deal with roughneck destruction


I feel numb


U2 come down with the matter of numb business


Top of the matter


Don't move
Don't talk out of time
Don't think
Don't worry everything's just fine
Just fine


Don't grab
Don't clutch
Don't hope for too much
Don't breathe
Don't achieve
Or grieve without leave


Don't check
Just balance on the fence
Don't answer
Don't ask
Don't try and make sense


I feel numb


Don't whisper
Don't talk
Don't run if you can walk
Don't cheat, compete
Don't miss the one beat


I feel numb


Don't travel by train
Don't eat
Don't spill
Don't piss in the drain
Don't make a will


Don't fill out any forms
Don't compensate
Don't cower
Don't crawl
Don't come around late
Don't hover at the gate


Don't take it on board
Don't fall on your sword
Just play another chord
If you feel you're getting bored


I feel numb


Don't be heavy
Don't be unkind
It's not that bad
Just try and unwind


I feel numb


Don't change your brand
Don't listen to the band
Don't ape
Don't gape
Don't change your shape
Have another grape


Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb
Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb
Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb
Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb
Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb
Come on, come on, hey
I feel numb


Don't plead
Don't bridle
Don't shackle
Don't grind
Don't curve
Don't swerve
Lie, die, serve


Don't theorize, realise, polarise
Glance, dance, dismiss, apologise


Don't spy
Don't lie
Don't try
Imply
Detain
Explain
Start again


Don't drive
Don't coax
Don't cling
Don't hoax
Don't freak
Peek
Don't leak
Don't speak


Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect
Suggest


Don't project
Don't connect
Protect
Don't expect
Suggest


I feel numb


Don't follow
Don't suffer
Don't touch
Don't dine
Don't bathe
Don't shave
Don't shower
Behave


I feel numb


Don't protest
Don't guess
Don't bless
Don't rest
Don't act
Detract

I feel numb

I feel numb

I feel numb
