Better Off Without You

  • You got it all wrong
    You think I'm indestructible
    But I can tell you right now
    With losing my mind, I'm losing my money
    And I'm feeling sick
    But I think I'm getting used to it
    And I've been taking trips
    Out of my head and out of my body
    Losing myself and loving no one

    And I'd like to say, I'm better off without you
    But I can't, no way, you won't believe me
    At nights, I drift like a bottle in the ocean
    'My Citalopram' will pull me through

    Well, I know it's all wrong
    Just a, weak minded individual
    But I can tell you right now
    I know I ain't weak, I aim to get better
    But I must admit that I fear I can't get over it
    But time only will tell
    I barely feel sad, I rarely feel happy
    Pop those pills and settle down

    And I'd like to say, I'm better off without you
    But I can't, no way, you won't believe me
    At nights, I drift like a bottle in the ocean
    'My Citalopram' will pull me though

    I can't stop smoking and drinking with the mess I'm in
    I need something stronger than your medicine
    I know it's not healthy but I just can't quit
    I can't win

    I'd like to say, I'm better off without you
    But I can't, no way, you won't believe me
    At nights, I drift like a bottle in the ocean
    'My Citalopram' will pull me though

    I can't stop smoking and drinking with the mess I'm in
    I need something stronger than your medicine
    I know it's not healthy but I just can't quit
    I can't win Writer/s: David Rawling, James Gillett, Joe Savins, Michael Chapman, Samuel Douglas
