Quiet like an elevator
Even the walls are scared
I'm dependent on a generator
Just to breathe in air

Medication, medication
Signatures and stares
Watching all the lights come down
Never wanting to care

These circles seem so strange
I run around and around but nothing's changed

Medication, medication,
Signatures and stares
I'm reinventing brand new lives
Like they were never there

I never want to run out
Get more, can't stand waiting
I never want to run out
Don't stop the lines from fading

It's time to wake up
I've been asleep for far too long
It's time to wake up
Before the pain I feel is gone

I never want to run out

I never want to run out
Get more, can't stand waiting
I never want to run out
Don't stop the lines from fading

    General Commenti think this song's about someone who's on drugs.. and he has realized how they have ruined his life but at the same time he doesn't wanna quit...and it's like a fight between his thoughts...i dunno if i explained myself as i wanted to..but anyways...that's more or less what i think...and my english is not perfect..i just thought this song deserved my post:)

    General CommentHave you ever read a first-hand account of someone who OD'd on heroin and woke up in the hospital, unable to move, blurried vision, with haze in their mind? This song is almost that exact moment.
