Blegh-ness — not to be confused with PMS :P October 7, 2006

I have no idea why I should be kinda depressed right now. I mean, my life’s pretty perfect at the moment — I love my job, I love the hours (it keeps me busy enough to satisfy my workaholic urges), the pay’s okay (nothing to write home about, but it’s okay, given the general journalism-doesn’t-pay-much refrain), I love my friends, everything else is pretty much perfect too.

Maybe all of this is long-forgotten, pent-up-and-repressed teenage angst which has come back to haunt me now that I’m in my twenties. Whatever it is, it is best explained by “Numb” — the only Linkin Park song I’ve ever liked.

And no, I’m not PMS-ed, just blegh-ed. 😛

I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless
Lost under the surface
I don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure
Of walking in your shoes
[caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow]
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
[caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow]

I’ve
Become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you.

Can’t you see that your smothering me
Holding too tightly
Afraid to lose control
‘Coz everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you.

[caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow]
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
[caught in the undertow,just caught in the undertow]
And every second I waste is more than I can take.

I’ve
Become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you.

And I know
I may end up failing too

But I know
You were just like me
With someone disappointed in you.

I’ve
Become so numb
I can’t feel you there
Become so tired
So much more aware
I’m becoming this
All I want to do
Is be more like me
And be less like you.

I’ve
Become so numb
I can’t feel you there
[tired of being what you want me to be]
