lyrics

My roommate was a promising young student
I woke one morning - found him on the floor
It wasn't clear what made up his prescription
Now he doesn't go to grad school anymore

My girlfriend had a family physician
Not paid to dole out drugs that worked before
The told her all the newer pills are smarter
But now she doesn't smile anymore

Why are we lining up to be slaves for free
Piggies from Guinea for a fee
Should be paying me
Why should I be happy to try X and Y
Just because some guy with a tie
Thinks I'm better high?

So lately I've been having trouble sleeping
And warm milk's worked for me since I was four
The doctor's really big on this hypnotic
Now I can't remember last week anymore

I'm okay - stupid lie that I
used to say - can't deny or my
hair turns gray - and my eyes will cry
1,2,3 - take these pills I must
Look at me - I'm no Sisyphus
I am free - and the best of us

Why are we lining up to be slaves for free
Piggies from Guinea for a fee
Should be paying me
Why should I be happy to try X and Y
Just because some guy with a tie
Thinks I'm better high?

I'm okay - stupid lie that I
used to say - can't deny or my
hair turns gray - and my eyes will cry
1,2,3 - take these pills I must
Look at me - I'm no Sisyphus
I am free - and the best of us
