"Sleeping Pills" as written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler....
Oh, Angel, don't take those sleeping pills
You don't need them
Though it's just time they kill
Oh, Angel, give me your sleeping pills
You don't need them
Give me the time they kill

You're a water sign
I'm an air sign
Gone, gone to Valium
Could you get me some?
You're a water sign
And I'm an air sign
Too Siamese to catch the leaves from those trees

Oh, Angel, don't take those sleeping pills
You don't need them
Though it's just time they kill, oh

You're a water sign
I'm an air sign
Pumped up with Valium
Could you get me some?
You're a water sign
I'm an air sign
With sweet F.A. to do today
With sweet F.A. to do today

Hey, hey, hey, hey
Sweet F.A
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Sweet F.A
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Sweet F.A
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Oh, Angel, don't take those sleeping pills

    General CommentThis song was written in one sitting over Brett's lunch. He was working in community centre in Highgate. It was inspired by mothers who would, according to Brett, "trundle in with their handicapped kids, and their mascara would be running because they'd spent the whole morning crying, and the only escape they had was to get a load of Valium down them."
