  • I feel smothered and encumbered and defeated and drawn
    Disappointed, over-extended and frustrated and shaken
    This over-giving , over-loving, this care taking goes on
    With no chance of intermission
    I'll be checked out, I'll be gone

    Have to remove myself from sensation

    Here comes the feeling
    I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
    Can't sit with this feeling
    I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

    I feel anxious, I am nervous I am bored
    I'm overwhelmed, rather be out of my gourd

    Have to remove myself from sensation

    Here comes the feeling
    I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
    Can't sit with this feeling
    I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb

    I am lonely, I feel hungry and unloved
    I feel angry, I am livid, need a hug

    Here comes the feeling
    I run from the feeling and reach for the drug
    Can't sit with this feeling
    I'd rather be flying and comfortably numb Writer/s: ALANIS NADINE MORISSETTE, GUY SIGSWORTH
