What’s the obsession
it’s this I was sure
a chemical dependence
we’ll take care of it
we’ll take care of it

clinical depression
we’ve got your prescription
what’s the addiction
your prediction
you need medication
to turn it off
turn it on
turn it off
turn it on
turn it off
turn it on

you’re self deprecating
you need help medicating
a psychotropical haze
a metabolical maze
this is it
this is it
this is it
this is it
this is it
shoot shoot on the radio

what’s the obsession
it’s this I was sure
a chemical dependence
we’ll take care of it
we’ll take care of it
a clinical depression
e’ve got your prescription
what’s the addiction
your prediction
this is the one
this is the one
this is the one
this is the one
this is the one
this is the one
shoot shoot on the radio

let’s live for each other
no eyes for another
let’s give away all our friends
and forget them
mouth to mouth
suffocation
lock the house
lock ourselves in
close your eyes
pick up the receiver
don’t set it down until you hear that sound…

I need you more than this
I need you more than this
I need you more than this
I need you more than this
I need you more than this
I need you more than this
shoot shoot on the radio.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song,
    and the music matches the lyrics well.

    The song is about problems, and using a medication or pills to take care of it. It's a deep song, if you really look into it.

    i'm not sure what "shoot shoot on the radio" is supposed to mean, maybe expressing the feelings or the troubles into a song, which goes onthe radio.

    i think instead of " we'll take care of it" it is "will take care of it."

    i love the line " mouth to mouth suffocation"
    as if two people, or maybe one person personifying a drug, cut off the rest of their lives except that one person/drug. It becomes the only thing in their life and they close themselves from the rest of the world, as if muffling them away from the pain but slowly killing them at the same time.

    the "i need you more than this" couls stand for needing a person or drug more than the life they have, or maybe even needing a person more than a drug and wanting to quit. I think it's the first opition though.

    It's funny, i posted this song on my myspace and everyone is falling in love with it. They are a really good band and will hopefully gain more fame with time.

    General CommentI can't believe how amazing this song is.
    One of my biggest pet peeves is a single phrase or statement repeated over and over and over.
    And yet, I think this is the strongest point in this song.
    Oddness...
