Medication

  • We'll keep calm and carry on
    With good intentions
    They'll prescribe the rights and wrongs
    Until we're perfect
    So maybe one day we'll be safe
    In control and full of grace
    Never making a mistake
    So flawless

    Cut us deeper to the core
    We won't feel a thing
    Imperfections weighing more
    Repressing difference

    I wish this wasn't all so hard
    To be yourself and not on guard
    To stop the racing in your heart
    We'll fight it

    Put me under
    Now I'm powerless
    Take it all
    Take it all
    Take it
    I can't breathe without you

    You won't trust me
    I won't trust you too
    Bring me back and
    Bring me back and
    Bring it
    Medicate me

    Hide me deeper in my shed
    Until I'm all alone
    I'm hearing voices in this sound
    Hallucinating
    I could have sworn I heard it too
    A sudden, beautiful adieu
    It's telling me what I should do
    I follow

    Put me under
    Now I'm powerless
    Take it all
    Take it all
    Take it
    I can't breathe without you

    You won't trust me
    I won't trust you too
    Bring me back and
    Bring me back and
    Bring it
    Medicate me now

    As I'm turning into dis-reflection
    You can't slow me
    My body and my mind
    My emotions and my pride

    The simplest things became the hardest part now
    The easiest parts have taken all my dreams
    I'm afraid
    I'll never be okay
    I'm afraid
    I'm scared I can't be happy
    I'm afraid

    This silence you feel is not a way to be sincere (I'm afraid)
    And it's a way to cope
    A way to heal (I'm scared I can't be happy)
    But not for me when I can't feel (I'm afraid)
    The subtleties that make me want to (I'll never be okay)
    Be alive and not a statue (I'm afraid)
    Breathe the air
    Be here to talk to (I'm scared I can't be happy)
    I'm afraid (I'll never be the same) Writer/s: JOSH BRADFORD, NEIL BOSHART, PAUL KOEHLER, SHANE TOLD, WILLIAM HAMILTON
