Medicine

  • I was done talking, but I still couldn't sleep
    I rolled up my medicine, to forget me
    Tried not to disappoint you but I didn't achieve

    'Cause I have a problem
    And I need to get some

    But I shouldn't waste my time
    Having you around
    What was up's gone down
    You take your road and I'll take mine

    I don't want to talk about it unlike you
    Your victimhood's your character, it defines you
    And then you rearrange it caress it into view

    You invent your problems
    And then you sell them

    So help me, why can't this be love?
    Tell me why can't this be enough?
    When is high ever high enough?
    It's all I ever hoped for

    But I shouldn't waste my time
    Having you around
    What was up's gone down
    You take your road and I'll take mine

    So swallow your problems
    We belong to a new dawn
    So swallow your problems
    We belong to a new dawn

    So swallow
    If she asks should I tell her?
    (Your problems)
    If she asks should I let her know?
    (We belong)
    We'll never be together
    (To a new dawn)
    We'll never see each other grow

    But I shouldn't waste my time
    Having you around
    What was up's gone down
    You take your road and I'll take mine
