Uncomfortably Numb

The evening comes and the party goes on
The nightmare forgotten, your mind still strong
You feel the rythm, the heartbeat, the waves
You’ve drown in water that never behaves

With confidence you always try to surrender
To the music of Elvis, Love Me Tender
But what do you see when the alcohol goes
When it’s washed away and the anger grows

That it’s Monday again and the school calls you back
To the grey reality you want desperately smack
Into waters that you’ve passed in fear
Already your memory, your blood, your tear

There is a life to live you can’t agree
You live an image that others get for free
But you want them to pay and you might run
But not right now
Those last hours of the night are there for fun.
