well look at this!
I see clearly now
look at this!
Are you feeling now?
happiness...
is seldom found
pop a pill!
I'm so damn happy now

feeling things crawl on me
I need my fix today
this is way beyond me
I can't live without you today

well look at this!
I see colors now
look at this!
people ugly now
happiness...
is seldom found
pop a pill!
I'm so damn happy now


feeling things crawl on me
I need my fix today
this is way beyond me
I can't live without you today

you today...
you today...

I don't care about anything around me
even all the love that surrounds me
break me
be me
I don't care about anything
I do this to shut off the voice within
within...
within...

I don't care about anything!

feeling things crawl on me
I need my fix today
this is way beyond me
I can't live without you today

you today...
you today...
you today...


feeling things crawl on me
I need my fix today
this is way beyond me
I can't live without you today

    General CommentShouldn't have to dig far for the meaning here...it's about drug addiction.

    General CommentWell i think it's less about drugs, but more about psycho-medication (Sorry for the word, I'm austrian)
    When you are depressed, you go to the psychiatrist, but instead of exploring your problem,
    he just puts you on medication, so you can function for society.

    But that's just my opinion^^

    General CommentI can see what you mean, but the underlying meaning is still addiction. Noone is forcing him to feel this way, it's a side-effect of taking pills that make you feel "better" regardless of the source.

    "I need my fix today"
    "I can't live without you today"

    General CommentThis is definatly one of my favourite son the new album, is it just me or is the song itself a bit addictive? Since I bought the album I have have listened to it at least once everyday lol

    Song MeaningNot about addiction, more about needing the medication for depression otherwise things get on top of him again. He's "feeling things crawl on me" (negative thoughts) so he needs his fix of anti-depressants to stop that and be "normal" as it were.

    Hard to explain to someone who might not have been on them but this is definitely an ode to his anti-depression meds
