Found a cure that doesn't kill
From lobotomys to a pill
Heal the mad and steal their pain
What's the industry got to gain?

If you could let me go
Or you could set me free
Then I would let you know
Of what's possessing me
And I would help you out
And I would show you the way
And you could scream and shout
Cos it would end today

Yeah
Yeah

Suicidal thoughts subside
Permanent damage to the mind
Excuse if the one we paid
"We are gonna die anyway"

Nihilistic human minds
Breaching to the end of time
Convinced that we are insane
Curable by the damaged brain.

    General CommentIn the Blind booklet, it says: "This CD is dedicated to all the mentally ill people in the world... Hang on, there is still hope." Fox is a licensed Nurse, and EMT amidst other things. I think he wrote this song to further the dedication in the previous CD.

    [i]Found a cure that doesn't kill
    From Lobotomys to a pill[/i]

    The evolution of mental health "treatment"

    [i]Heal the mad and steal their pan[/i]

    "Mad" as in crazy, not angry.

    [i]What's th industry got to gain?[/i]

    Once you're cured, your cured. you don't need to see a doctor anymore, so he looses a patient, and therefore money too.

    [i]If you could let me go
    Or you could set me free
    Then I would let you know
    Of what's possessing me
    And I would help you out
    And I would show you the way
    And you could scream and shout
    Cos it would end today[/i]

    Explanation of what he is thinking probably.

    [i]Suicidal thoughts subside[/i]

    Taking medication

    [i]Permanent damage to the mind[/i]

    Side effects of the drugs

    [i]Excuse if the one we paid
    "We are gonna die anyway"[/i]

    Not something you say to a depressed person to convince them to take Prozac.

    [i]Nihilistic human minds
    Breaching to the end of time
    Convinced that we are insane
    Curable by the damaged brain.[/i]

    Self explanatory.
