Mess of Me

Album: Hello Hurricane (2009)
  • I am my own affliction
    I am my own disease
    There ain't no drug that they could sell
    Ah there ain't no drugs to make me well

    There ain't no drug
    It's not enough
    There ain't no drug
    The sickness is myself

    I made a mess of me I wanna get back the rest of me
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
    I've made a mess of me I wanna reverse this tragedy
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my live alive
    The rest of my life alive!

    We lock our souls in cages
    We hide inside our shells
    It's hard to free to the ones you love
    Oh when you can't forgive yourself
    Yeah forgive yourself!

    There ain't no drug
    There ain't no drug
    There ain't no drug
    The sickness is myself

    I made a mess of me I wanna get back the rest of me
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
    I've made a mess of me I wanna reverse this tragedy
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my live alive
    The rest of my life alive!

    Ah! Right

    There ain't no drug
    There ain't no drug
    There ain't no drug
    No drugs to make me well
    There ain't no drug
    It's not enough
    I'm breaking up
    The sickness is myself
    The sickness is myself

    I made a mess of me I wanna get back the rest of me
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my life alive
    I've made a mess of me I wanna reverse this tragedy
    I've made a mess of me I wanna spend the rest of my live alive
    The rest of my life alive!! Writer/s: JON FOREMAN, TIM FOREMAN

  • Anthony Carfagno from NjI thought it & Sing it out were based on:

    Jeremiah 30:12-13 (KJV)
    12] For thus saith the LORD, Thy bruise is incurable, and thy wound is grievous.
    13] There is none to plead thy cause, that thou mayest be bound up: thou hast no healing medicines. (a.k.a. DRUG)
  • Bayode from LagosThere is no drug better than you, it's just all about self determination and self discipline...celebrity
