"Happy Pills" as written by and Bardi David/krusen Martin....
Sometimes you wake to see yourself
Take happier pills to keep you well
And sometimes you talk to hear yourself
Screaming out loud

Never ever heard a word you said
Can't you see yourself?
Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie

But you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Can't you sweep this shit to the side
It's so fucking nice to have you here
To turn our lives from what we fear

But sometimes you're worthless and weak and alone
Will you ever grow?
Here I am I want to help you out
Can't you see yourself?

Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie
So you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find

You'll find it's all over and can't you see it's all over
This face that stares back at you
Stares back at you, from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight

I'll be here to watch you shudder
I'll be the one that holds you under
Every time you try to shift it
Every time your stitch is slipping

Slipping through time
There's more truth in the way that you lie
So you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find

Got it all over you now
Got it all over you now
Got it all over this
The face that stares back at you from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight

    General CommentHmm. It must be about a person who has a problem with anger management. This person is taking drugs to try to escape his/her problems and depression, yet trys to come up with excuses for why it's not their fault.

    Obviously someone else is trying to help him/her, but can't because he/she is stubborn.

    General Commenti don't think its about anger management problems...lol..who knows...either way yeah its about depression or inner personal problems and having to take some sort of substance or pills (I am not sure what drug the song's referring to, its not that obvious unlike other songs directly titled about drugs)...my best guess is some kind of pills, or relying on

    "talking out loud" and stuff could be about the wierd shit and side effects its having on you.....but ur 2 much of a depressed person so u rely on something 2 be confident and stab everything around ur mind...he feels worthless and alone will u ever grow?"...thts pretty self explanitory.....and "slipping through time", over time relying to much on it ohly to crash later, "when this cloud lifts, these happy pills won't keep you well", once the high is ovr...it was just a temperary solution to disguise urself

    General CommentI think this song is about depression and self loathing.

    "There's more truth in the way that you lie"
    I guess that's the 'happy pill' doing what it's supposed to. It's making him seem mentally stable when he knows that that's not the truth. He wants to be happy (that's the truth) but a drug-induced happiness is just a lie.

    "Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find
    You'll find it's all over and can't you see it's all over"

    That sounds like he's become addicted to the pill. He relies on it to make him happy.. When he's overcome his depression he'll find he'll still want to take the pill by force of habit, because he's addicted to it.

    Idk, if I'm right but that's how I see it.
