"Pills" as written by and Bobby/luttrell Burns....
I've taken all my pills
But I'm still not sleepy
Tried to trick myself into thinking
That I'm not awake

That it's only a dream
Put that cigarette out
Don't ask me no questions
Salome dancing on my wall

And the shadows on the floor
Look so warm from here
I've seen it all before
Just one little lie

But the difference is this
It meant the world to me
Don't ask me no questions
"Take the wheel" she said "As I wander"

We could leave this town
I've got all I need spirit, hope and joe
But no one knows me
I think I lost my pills

Guess I'll take my chances
I'm looking at the telephone
But nothing happens
I am well aware

That the morning is near
Put that radio down
Don't ask me no questions

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Gary Jules amazes me with the fact he can take such a serious song and make it to such a happy tune.

    To me this song is about how he wants to kill himself because of this woman who has made his life crazy. He's sick of where he is and wants to leave, but feels like it won't make a difference. I also think that he doesn't have the courage to leave. He's medicated and he's trying to trick himself into believing that the pills will solve all his problems, but in face they make them worse.

    "I've got all I need: spirit, hope and joe, but no one knows me" is probably my favorite line. I'm not sure if it's suppose to be joy instead of joe, but I like joe better because I'm an avid coffee drinking and spitit, hope, and joe are the three things that keep me going sometimes. I also understand having the medication make you think that you're all alone when you're really not.
