Let the medicine take over
Close the blinds with my hands
I stayed in bed most of October
I thought I was well but I guess I am

Chorus:
Sick to the bone of waking lonely
And trying to keep my head from going under
I keep going so sick to the bone and still
Stuck to my guns, drinking alone, sick to the bone

The very unmarried ladies of Avenue A
Say "Spread the wealth baby spread the wealth"
Are you feeling a little unsteady today?
Sugar have I got something for you
It's something strong, like medicine
Like the beard of the old man, like you know I am

Repeat Chorus

Hey you better heal yourself
Hey you better lock your door
'Cause it's kill or cure

I thought I had the inoculation
It turns out not to be the case
And the sky is loaded like a question
Like the beard of the old man, like you know I am

Repeat Chorus

    General CommentI love this song...not all the lyrics are posted and I love the one that goes "Can you make me well, well I doubt it."

    The only line I don't understand is "Like the beard of the old man, like you know I am". Is this some kind of expression, or simply stating he feels old?
