I had a conversation one evening with a friend about chemicals, they're impact on people, and medications. This song is about that conversation.


What do you need to live?
What will make you content?
Necessities met
Love to give
Someone to share your happiness with
My body aches
Got plenty of sleep
Yet can’t stay awake
Self Destruction
My normal routine
Bottle in hand
Knives through veins

There’s a battle in my head
It’s me versus the meds
It’s just a drug yea
It’s just a drug yea
So leave the chemicals behind us
Our sickness is marketed to us
Pull the plug yea
Just pull the plug yea

Up the dosage
Up the usage
The highs
The lows
So fucking used to it
A roller coater ride
That’s never ending
I’m at the peak
And then I’m descending
