  • I'm doing very well
    I can block out the present and the past now
    I know by now you think I should have
    Straightened myself out - Thank you, drop dead!
    Something is squeezing my skull
    Something I can barely describe
    There is no love in modern life

    I'm doing very well
    It's a miracle I even made it this far
    The motion of taxis excites me
    When you peel it back and bite me
    Something is squeezing my skull
    Something I can barely describe
    There is no hope in modern life

    Something is squeezing my skull
    Something I can't fight
    No true friends in modern life

    Diazepam that's valium, Temazepam, Lithium, HRT, ECT
    How long must I stay on this stuff?
    Don't give me anymore
    Don't give me anymore
    Don't give me anymore
    Please don't give me anymore
    Don't give anymore
    Don't give anymore
    You swore you would not give anymore
    Don't give anymore, don't give anymore...

    You swore, you swore, you swore
    You swore you would not give anymore
    Give anymore, give anymore, give anymore... Writer/s: ALAIN GORDON WHYTE, STEVEN MORRISSEY, STEVEN PATRICK MORRISSEY
