Numb

5 years ago I wrote some lyrics about my experience with Lyme Disease

It had been 4 years and I didn’t even know I was sick. Unbeknownst to me it took over my nervous system and had been silently wrecking havoc on my body!

Now, a half a decade later … I am about to travel to Germany for an intense 3 week protocol to kick my Lyme to the curb! I recently looked at these lyrics and was overwhelmed with emotion. 

This song still rings So Very True to me and probably many others who have the unfortunate honor of Living in the Lyme Light.

Numb



You turn around and bite me
Biting more than you can chew
Your taking so much of me
A pain no one should ever go through

Tingles in my arms and legs
All over me
Ringing inside my head
You keep taking all of me
You shoulda hopped in someone else’s bed

(chorus)
Numbness in my brain
Makes me go insane
Numb just like before
I can’t take no more
Numb inside my brain
Makin’ me insane
Numb just like before
No, I can’t take no more

You suck the life right out
I can’t remember yesterday
Ripping out my energy
This pain is like a damn disease


You turn around and bite me
Biting more than you can chew
Your taking so much of me
A pain no one should ever go through

Bringing me down to my knees

(chorus)
Numbness in my brain
Makes me go insane
Numb just like before
I can’t take no more
Numb inside my brain
Makin’ me insane
Numb just like before
No, I can’t take no more
