Surely there's no substitute for company
My mom's ripping off her hands one flake at a time
All her children left the house and left her all alone
But just like she'd tell me
Things get better
Just wait and you'll see

Take one day at a time
Anything else you can leave behind
Only one thing at a time
Anything more really hurts your mind
I don't want for us to take pills anymore
Not that it's bad
I don't want for us to take pills because we're stronger and we don't need them

    General CommentI'm on pills and my doctor says I'll probably need them forever. She says it's harmless stuff that your body makes for itself, but I guess harmless stuff that my body makes for itself doesn't give me bleedings, weight loss, sleeping disorders, a lessened libido, headaches, bad sight, transpiration... etc. It's the addition of EXTRA stuff in my body (more that it's built for) that gives me trouble, but also what helps me along. However, I definately don't want to think of this as a permanent solution. Whatever it does, it still alters you and makes you a different person from who you were. Things get better, while other things get worse. I think that this song is pretty accurate about what taking pills should be about- a temporary fix.
