Now that broken’s real
Now that fixed is fake
I think I chose the side
That I want to take

Let my mind transpose
Lull me in its lie
Desensitise my lows
Anaesthetise my highs

Tranquillise my life
I can’t stand to feel
Numb me from this world
Hold me from what’s real

Let the cloying comfort
Encase me in its arms
So I feel safe from trouble
So I feel safe from harm

Tranquillise my life

But I know this feeling won’t last
I don’t want to come down

When the walls fall down
When this bubble bursts
Tranquillise me more
I can’t stand to hurt

Make the feeling flow
Over me again
Hasten my descent
Into oblivion

Tranquillise my life
Tranquillise my life

I’ve annulled my grieving
I’ve numbed all that’s real
There’s nothing worth believing
There’s nothing left to feel

A wall around my brain
Shields me from life’s knives
So I can’t feel the pain
I tranquillised my life
I tranquillised my life
I tranquillised my
