Electro-Shock Blues

Album: Electro-Shock Blues (1998)
  • Feeling scared today
    Write down "I am OK"
    A hundred times the doctors say
    I am OK
    I am OK
    I'm not OK

    Skin is crawling off
    Mopping the sweaty drops
    Sticking around for this shit
    Another day
    Another day
    Not another day

    Pink pills feels good
    Finally understood
    Take me in your warm embrace
    I am trying
    I am trying Writer/s: MARK O. EVERETT, MICKEY PETRALIA

  • Elizabeth from West Bridgewater, MaA very beautiful song. I find it creative how the name of the song relates to Liz's mental state. She had schizophrenia and depression, which was what electo-shock therapy was used to cure.
