"Doctor's Are Dead" as written by and John Davis....
In December, I can remember Summer's pharmacy
But it takes time to arrange a reason
I get out of my bed, my doctor's are dead

In the morning, light was a warning, that she wore to me
So we can feel the infatuation
When the flowers are dried, with powders we'll fly

In many ways, her holidays are holier now
Still I wonder how she came covered in a capsule
Called by her name, dazzled in a capsule
Cold and decayed, on the colonnade
No heart, no heart, no heart

In a season, I see with treason, she was harmony
But it takes time to rewrite the reason
I go out of my head, I drown in my bed

We awaken, only mistaken, there are vacancies
And we can live on the insulation
When the power goes out, I drown in my doubt

In many ways, her holidays, are holier now
Still I wonder how she came covered in a capsule
Called by her name, dazzled in a capsule
Cold and decayed, on the colonnade
No heart, no heart, no heart

    My InterpretationI think this is my favorite song from Superdrag and it is nothing less than a poem set to music. All four verses have the same syllable counts, line one: 14, line two: 10, then line three: 11. The themes are medication/drugs: 7 occurrences, death: 10 occurrences, girlfriend/relationship: 14, seasons/time periods: 6. There's a lot of alliteration everywhere: "in many ways, Her Holidays, are Holier now, still I wonder How she Came, Covered in a Capsule, Cold and deCayed on the Colonnade etc.

    The emotional content is very strong: frustration, loss and regret and nostalgia for a romance that has passed; there's a deep sense of depression almost to the point of insanity. Even when he was with her, he was depressed, but at least he was not alone then. "It takes time to rewrite [find] the reason I get out of my bed," "I go out of my head, I drown in my bed."
