Storyline

The video follows the domestic and social problems faced during a day in the life of an unpopular outcast young female student (portrayed by Briana Evigan). The girl apparently spends much of her time drawing pictures, revealing that she probably has dreams of becoming an artist. She is largely shunned and ridiculed at school, considering that when she is told off by the lecturer for drawing in class everybody laughs at her and teases her, when she trips on the stairs nobody stops to help her up, and that when she tries to join a group of girls at a lunch table they immediately get up and leave. There are also self-inflicted cut marks on her arms, which spell out "NUMB". During the song's climax, she is shown in her room, as she ties up her hair with a paintbrush, and throws paint at a canvas in anger. At the end, she runs into the church that the band was playing in, almost as if she heard them, only to find the church left behind empty. Written by Anonymous

A dramatic and wonderful vision of how it is to have a lonely life.
9 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a strong music video, it really captures the miserable view of someone who's unpopular and does not have someone for support. Yes I know that the song "Numb" is the most recognizable song from them and I agree with every other fans that this is really their masterpiece song.

The music video shows honesty to the poor girl how miserable her life is. Yes I know it's a melodramatic song and music video but this one isn't boring to look at or even listening to. The tone of the music video might look a bit grayish but that's what makes this MV so dramatic on a personal view. And the ending is quite shocking in my opinion and it always leaves me speechless but in a quiet way.

I would recommend anyone to see this music video, it's dramatic and honest. I can't imagine any other music videos like this.
