​We Won't Numb The Pain / Fire

This song is by Tenth Avenue North and appears on the album Cathedrals (2014).

We're taking paths of least resistance
And never feel our soul's persistence
Turn on the radio
We don't wanna know
Keep on running in cruise control

We were never meant to live like this
So much has happened and too easy to miss, yeah
Cheap thrills, social media thrills, use sex like a drug and we can't keep still

Distracted, distracted
Keep ourselves so distracted
We want more

We won't numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won't numb the pain
Slow down inside the riot
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won't numb the pain

Talk influence and being strategic
But all I'm feeling is narcissistic
Use recognition for the adrenaline
Don't stop long enough to hear the disconnection

We were never meant to live like this
Stand up for anything and be dismissed
We don't want it real, we keep it trivial
Objectify it gives a greater feel

We won't numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won't numb the pain
Slow down inside the riot
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won't numb the pain

We want the cure, not a medication
We're gonna deal with it now
We want the cure, not a medication
We're gonna deal with it now

We won't numb the pain
Hands reaching to the sky
Hearts ready for the fire
Eyes open till we die

We won't numb the pain
Slow down inside the riot
Stand still against the tide
Keep fighting for the silence
We won't numb the pain

Gonna feel my,
Gonna feel my,
Gonna feel my heart now

Let me get a taste of your sweetness
Give me one glimpse of your lovely light
Lord, be my joy and treasure
My delight

Let me have a sense of your presence
May I trust your mercy all my life
I just wanna be a fire burning in the night

Fire, fire, fire, fire
Fire in my heart, fire in my soul
May the fire of your love burn away control
Satisfy my heart, 'cause I don't wanna steal
Or give in to my lust just to feel

Fire, fire, fire, fire
