"Sleeping Pills" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
Angel don't take those sleeping pills you don't need them
Though it's just time they kill
Angel give me your sleeping pills you don't need them
Give me the time they kill
You're a water sign I'm an air sign
Gone gone to Valium can you get me some?
You're a water sign and I'm an air sign
Too Siamese to catch the leaves from those trees

Angel don't take those sleeping pills you don't need them
Though it's just time they kill,

You're a water sign, I'm an air sign
Pumped up with Valium, could you get me some?
You're a water sign, I'm an air sign
With sweet F.A. to do today, with sweet F.A. to do today

Angel, don't take those sleeping pills.

    General CommentThis song was written in one sitting over Brett's lunch. He was working in community centre in Highgate. It was inspired by mothers who would, according to Brett, "trundle in with their handicapped kids, and their mascara would be running because they'd spent the whole morning crying, and the only escape they had was to get a load of Valium down them."
