Verse 1

Flick a switch deep inside and it's all gone.

I can't feel a single thing anymore.

Couldn't find a way to stop all the pain,

To bring life back to a heart so hollow.

Chorus

So I picked the numb way out,

I'm so used to it by now,

I poured chloroform all over my soul.

As long as it's in sweet restless slumber,

No one can ever hurt me,

And my sorrow can never take control

Verse 2

Of me and drain my tired eyes dry.

I think it's worth sacrificing my smile.

I think I'll take anything but the hurt

That tears me from inside out every night.

Chorus

So I picked the numb way out,

I'm so used to it by now,

I poured chloroform all over my soul.

As long as it's in sweet restless slumber,

No one can ever hurt me,

And my sorrow can never take control.

Bridge

You can never take control

And make me want to die.

I'll flick the switch off before I get there, honey.

Chorus

I'll pick the numb way out,

I'm so used to it by now,

I'll pour chloroform all over my soul.

As long as it's in sweet restless slumber,

No one can ever hurt me,

And my sorrow can never take control.
