  • my friend clio doesn't care if its placebo
    if you open up her mind
    really let the blood flow
    she talks in crystals always sitting down to give ya unsolicited advice
    tarot cards and rainbows

    and my friend wheeler
    he's been talking to a healer
    ever since his wife left home
    and now when i visit
    he speaks in dialects of mystics 'bout the prospects of my soul
    says he knows more than i'll ever know
    mmmmm
    if you say so

    'cause i don't care how i get there darling
    name the cure and i'll come running
    i don't care how i get there darling
    say the words with enough conviction
    'cause i don't care how i get there
    as long as i arrive

    and i met a surgeon said he'd rather work on patients
    who believe they will survive
    grateful for all they got
    and just the same the perfect medicine won't save you
    if you're confident you'll die
    if you made your mind up

    'cause i was taking sugar pills
    and i didn't even know it
    'til the doctor finally told me
    he said i had to prove you didn't need those drugs at all
    and someday soon you'll thank me
    he said you'll thank me for lying
    and i thanked him for lying
    what a thought
    thanked him for lying
    for lying
    for lying

    'cause i don't care how i get there darling
    name the cure and i'll come running
    i don't care how i get there darling
    say the words with enough conviction
    i don't care, i don't care
    i don't care how i get there
    i don't care how i get there as long as i arrive Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
