Medicate Myself

Medicate Myself

The Verve Pipe

I hear you cryin' for me
But I see the anger in your eyes

Stares from the mirror on the wall
You think you know my problems -
I think that you don't

I don't believe I suffer
Disease as you proclaim
And I don't believe that I should kneel
And hang my head in shame
Held prisoner by a monkey
Strapped on behind my back
And while I sit ablaze
The light is slowly fading
Into the black

I've got to medicate myself again
Cuz you don't need me hanging ‘round
One more drink and I will be drowned
I know you hate to see me
As I defeat myself this way
You know you can't control me
You know I'm slipping day by day
Down into my obsession
Down in the hole where I belong
And when the fight is over
