  • Please allow me to be your anti-depressant
    I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

    We kick back and let the pills do the talking
    People hear a distinct rattle when we're walking
    Then there's the extra two stone that's our only guarantee

    Our vivid dreams are just like big production movies
    They get entangled well within our daily routines
    So please re-think or use my trademark strategy

    And please allow me to be your anti-depressant
    I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

    It's hard to smile when you're as flattened as a pancake
    The only tears come from our heads when we concentrate
    Perhaps I'm being unjust or perhaps you agree

    Still I've thrown away my citalopram
    I needed more than what was in those 40 milligrams
    So cast away with the doctor's plans

    And please allow me to be your anti-depressant
    I too am prescribed as freely as any decongestant

    Still I've thrown away my citalopram
    Although I felt as grim as the reaper man
    So cast away with the doctor's plans
    Like me Writer/s: MATTHEW EDWARD MURPHY, DANIEL JOSEPH HAGGIS, TORD OEVERLAND KNUDSEN
