  • I was alone, falling free
    Trying my best not to forget
    What happened to us, what happened to me
    What happened as I let it slip

    I was confused by the powers that be
    Forgetting names and faces
    Passers by were looking at me
    As if they could erase it

    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?

    I was alone staring over the ledge
    Trying my best not to forget
    All manner of joy, all manner of glee
    And our one heroic pledge

    How it mattered to us, how it mattered to me
    And the consequences
    I was confused by the birds and the bees
    Forgetting if I meant it

    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?

    And the sex, and the drugs, and the complications
    And the sex, and the drugs, and the complications
    And the sex, and the drugs, and the complications
    And the sex, and the drugs, and the complications

    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?
    Baby, did you forget to take your meds?

    I was alone, falling free
    Trying my best not to forget Writer/s: BRIAN MOLKO, STEFAN OLSDAL, STEVEN HEWITT

  • Greg from Princeton, NjI have to agree with Joel from Yorkshire. It is a great song. I have also seen the video of House on Youtube. It's great. I don't feel however that the song is nessisarily about cocaine. It could be that the protaganist in the song is mentally ill.
  • Joel from Hawworth, Yorkshire, United KingdomThis is a brilliant song. I recently saw a video of House with this song on it. The video is on
    Youtube.
