lyrics

Comatose
(Deaf and blind)
Cadaverous
(Dead inside)
Corrupted
(These feelings not mine)
Constricted
(Within this hell I'm...)
Trapped inside these invisible walls
Wandering through labyrinthine halls
Another dose to save me
Another dose to change me
Another dose to protect from those who wish to harm me
They've enslaved me, they betrayed me
I was nothing more than a variable
Just a pawn in their experimentation
A child with a mouth stuffed full of pills
An industry with a pocketful of thrills
A government paying for every single dose
To ruin the life of just another foolish host
Corporations filling my head with their fetid lies
As their poisons warped and twisted the conclaves of my mind
I was imagining things that I knew were never there
Hallucinating demons, but no one ever seemed to care
And it still goes on everyday
My story is rather tragic, though it's sadly ordinary
The human race is on display
As the very health of a man can be bought and sold in this age
They keep pushing capsules, tempting man with a chemical fate
Playing gods, while bowing to the altar of greed
This medical caricature will not give you what you need
Demonizing natural cures, yet publicizing experimental blurs
Side effects that could even bring death
Poisons marketed to those who have no options left
Why don't you just prescribe them cyanide
Slow kills to deprive humanity of the very gift of life
Pills
Drugs
Moods
Escapes
Take it all away from me
(Lyrics Omitted)
Just shut up and take your medicine
Just shut up and accept this new self
Just shut up and become a statistic of this modern age
Could someone please help me
Could someone please save me from me
Could someone please make me more than me
Could someone please numb me
Please let this pill kill me
Please let this pill erase me
Please let this pill set me free
