Medicine

Album: After The Disco (2014)
  • This ordinary room is turning
    Into something of a prison, oh
    And the only thing we know for certain
    Is that don't nobody know

    You think all of this is real
    That's why you never try
    To get it down or will it up
    It's a shame

    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

    Not another lonely evening
    When you stay you're not counting omens
    When the morning isn't so disturbing actually
    Just won't let it go

    You think cutting gives you license (license)
    To do anything at all (anything)
    But you got to take your medicine (medicine)
    To allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall

    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

    It's a wonder anyone can breathe you
    With a smoke too thick to cough
    So we fallin' as we run for cover
    From the bombs we're setting off

    You think cutting gives you license (license)
    To do anything at all (anything)
    But you got to take your medicine (medicine)
    To allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall

    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha (allow your hands to lose that grip and let it fall)

    So we watch another good day fading
    How we gonna leave the hangman hanging
    Girl, one day you know it all melts in your breath

    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha
    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha

    Hoo, haha, hoo, haha Writer/s: JAMES MERCER, BRIAN BURTON
