American Football – Uncomfortably Numb lyrics
(feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore)

[Verse 1]
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

[Verse 2: Mike Kinsella & Hayley Williams]
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

[Chorus: Mike Kinsella, Hayley Williams]
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

[Verse 3: Hayley Williams]
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

[Chorus: Mike Kinsella & Hayley Williams]
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
