"The Story Of 100 Aisles" as written by and Turner/maida/lanni/taggart....
Help yourself
If you know why you came
Cause if you need help she says
There's something I've got saved
This is not what you wanted
These candy coated fakes
This is not what you wanted
This is pain
Anacin, we're stumbling again
It's the story of a hundred aisles
Walk away from simple on a tray
Cause if you need help she says
These fancy pills don't rate
This is not what you wanted
A miracle today
Time is not for sale today
Time seems so far away
You need more than this
Depressed come here try this

    General CommentThis song talks about over-the-counter medicine. Raine is singing about how it is easy to just become an addict to these medicines. Gotta love it!

    General CommentI think it's about how people want an easy fix, a temporary solution to a problem that's not really going to be solved so easy

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite songs. Everyone is into the new our lady peace but clumsy in my opinion is their best album.

    General Commenti also like clumsy and naveed,
    this song is definately about drugs, infact i think the drug is called anacin, i used to live in canada and i think this is an over the counter durg sold there.(correct me if im wrong) anyways i would rate this song a 5, it kicks ass!!

    General CommentWyndrake is right. Medicines are used for quick-fixes, especially for feeling really sad and depressed. You take medicines instead of trying to find happiness yourself. Radiohead calles them "Prozac Painkillers" in the song "bones"

    General Commenti love clumsy and spiritual machines and naveed! The new cd is okay, but old stuff is muchos better. Anyways, I like this song, cause everybody wants something to make them better now, like medicine, drugs, whatever, and how its so easy to become dependent on these things.

    General CommentI thought it was about suicide. That the pills to get rid of the pain just arn't enough, you need something more permanate to get rid of the pain.

    General Commenti just listened to this song again for the first time in awhile and i was thinking like logically a song about quick fixes and drugs/meds is normal but this is different cos seriously Anacin is just aspirin and caffeine, and he says this is not what you wanted/ candy coated fakes so i was thinking like OTC drugs aren't enough and he's talking about needing something more and searching for something stronger
