lyrics

Everybody’s hurting, tortured
Got an ache they can’t quite
Put their fingers on
Some backroom novelist
Is working on his latest
Metaphysical nightmare
And it should have been left alone
He’s telling all his colleagues
They’re shouting it from the lectern
Dogmatic indigestion
And we’ve only ourselves to blame

These people force it down our throats
It’s consensual rape
A Placebo
But instead of sugar pills
It’s cyanide

Well I feel so bad, I’ve let you down
Watch me get on my knees
Absolution is a mighty blow
To the wicked soul that’s me
I’m a model of corruption
Aimed towards self-destruction
And I need somewhere to simply be
But I feel like nothing is worth the living
If life is just chemistry

Some stripped-down karaoke crooner
Is moving out to Hollywood
He’s got a message for me
Says we shouldn’t be fighting
Or driving in our motor-cars
He’s the arbiter of freedom

And so I turned to God
And asked for peaceful sleep
Now I don’t dream at all
Now I don’t dream at all

These people force it down our throats
It’s consensual rape
A Placebo
But instead of sugar pills
It’s cyanide

Well I feel so bad, I’ve let you down
Watch me get on my knees
Absolution is a mighty blow
To the wicked soul that’s me
I’m a model of corruption
Aimed towards self-destruction
And I need somewhere to simply be
But I feel like nothing is worth the living
If life is just chemistry
