"Good Medicine" as written by and Levi Weaver....
I struggled and reconciled
These words of hope and freedom
And these minister's convictions
These verbal mausoleums

Vowels start emancipations
And holy carpe diems
The battles and bombshells I have levied on myself in the form of you
In the form of you

Now how can these all coexist
The heartbreak for the dying
When my trials gave way to failure
My silence gave way to crying

And now look at this destruction
Good and evil still are fighting
Leaving mangled half-hearts in their wake
They take their toll on you in the form of me
In the form of me

[Chorus:]
Well I've been an agent of the death of love
I've been an angel from above
Don't mind the way I feel
Please save yourself
And I've derailed your stability (priorities)
You've given that ability to me
(And) I can say I've done it well
But we've failed the final challenge, love
We're both so out of balance, love
Let's commit this suicide and save us all

Well my heart will not forgive me
For this unwilling extraction
Of your love from its controlling grips
This unpardonable action

We'll wage civil war between my heart and mind
The duelling factions never really got along so well
I'll sell a heart that still belongs to you
In the form of us two

But even my old heart's determined
Unforgiveness does not measure a capacity for hurt
And in that's volume of displeasure to the guilt that I would feel
Having killed you to have kept you
If you ever had an ounce of trust, believe me when I say you must be free
From this infernal me

(Chorus)

And, oh, I love you still
And I believe that you love me
And, oh, I love you still
And I believe that you love me
And I believe that you love me

Well it's a paradox of such a big proportion
I may never understand why anyone would ever bother to endeavor to
Make justified the columns of the right now and what's left forever
Underneath the layers of a heart that's partly me and partly you
I am partly you

For that precise equation
I must separate my feelings and our future for the sake of you
The sake of your own healing
If I let you be a part of me, my self-destructive peeling back
The layers of your love will take you down and I will not be that to you
No, I will not be that to you

(Chorus)

Oh we've failed the final challenge, love
We've been so in and out of love
Let's commit this suicide and save us all
Let's commit this suicide and save us all
Let's commit this suicide and save us all

    "I struggle to reconcile..."
    "battle-scarred emancipations..."
    "tries gave way to failure / sighs gave way to crying..."
    "unpardonable action *will* wage civil war..."
    "in the form of a tune..."
    "even my own heart's eternal..."
    "measure (in) capacity for hurt and in its volume of displeasure..."
    "paradox of such epic proportions..."
    "self-destruction, peeling back..."

    though, listening again, some of yours make more sense :)
