lyrics

Got my heart ripped out, but I didn’t leave the scene
Kept my eyes shut tight, I didn’t want to see the pain and make it real
Went to hell and back on a chemical escape
Felt the room pulse white to the blinking of my life
Tick tock, tick tock, don’t let me slip again

Give me drugs to help me stand everything that hurts me
Cause I don’t know who I am when I do it my way
I don’t need your therapy
Just give me the drugs or leave me on the floor to bleed

Took a beautiful things and made it a disease
Hit the gas too hard until I couldn’t breathe and felt my heart shut down
I made home in an empty room
I screamed out ‘til my lungs were black and blue
Tick tock, one shot to save my life again

Give me drugs to help me stand everything that hurts me
Cause I don’t know who I am when I do it my way
I don’t need your therapy
Just give me the drugs or leave me on the floor to bleed

Medicate, elevate, give me chemistry
Cause I’m a lush, I’m afraid I’m a tragedy
Meditate, educate, give me clarity
Cause I don’t who I am, who I want to be
So give me salt, give sleep, give me something to put a little faith in me
Medicate, medicate, medicate me

Give me drugs to help me stand everything that hurts me
Cause I don’t know who I am when I do it my way
I don’t need your therapy
Just give me the drugs
Give me the drugs to help me stand everything that I feel
Cause I don’t know who I am when I do it my way
I don’t need your sympathy
Just give me the drugs or leave me on the floor to bleed
