Song of the Day: Marina and the Diamonds - Are You Satisfied?
"Are You Satisfied?" and "Obsessions"

Those three songs are her best, in my opinion. But I've been listening to her album "The Family Jewels" a lot lately and think there are a lot of good songs on it. Not only that, but the whole album does a decent job of capturing how I feel lately.

So ... I'm doing a Week of Marina this week. Read what you want into my song choices.


Seventh song, and this one best captures how I've been feeling over the past month, posted on YouTube by Barney4000:
"Marina & the Diamonds - Numb [WITH LYRICS]"

One track mind, like a goldfish,
Stuck inside my petri dish.
I can't breathe, and I can't smile,
This better be worth my while.

I feel numb most of the time,
The lower I get the higher,
I'll climb, and I will wonder why,
I got dark only,
To shine.
Looking for the golden light,
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice.

Burn burn burn bright.

Forgo families,forgo friends,
That's how it started, and how it ends,
I can't open up and cry, 'cause i've been silent all my life.

I feel numb most of the time,
The lower I get the higher,
I'll climb, and I will wonder why,
I get dark only,
To shine.
Looking for the golden light,
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice.

Burn burn burn bright.
Burn burn burn bright.

Ooh, I get dark,
Ohh, and I'm in hell,
I need a friend,
Ooh, but I can't yell,
Yeah, i'm no good,
No good to anyone,
'Cause all I care about,
Is being number one.

Shine,
Looking for the golden light,
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice.

Shine,
Looking for the golden light,
Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice.
Sacrifice.

I feel numb most of the time,
The lower I get the higher,
I'll climb, and I will wonder why,
I get dark only,
To shine.
And I'll light up the sky,
Stars that burn the brightest,
Fall so fast and pass you by,
Puff like empty lighters,

I feel numb most of the time,
The lower I get the higher,
I'll climb, and I will wonder why,
I got dark only,
To shine.
And I'll light up the sky,
Stars that burn the brightest,
Fall so fast and pass you by,
Spark like empty lighters.

Dum dum dum, duh dah da.
