lyrics

Medicine, I'm reticent to take one today
Prescribed by hands, those damn deft hands who just know what to say

Incubate, resuscitate, then refrigerate, make a new promise, the commissary will switch and then bait, yeah

Oh,
Don’t you understand, am I being clear?
Don’t you understand, am I being clear?

Don’t you know that I can’t repeat repeat repeat myself myself myself myself my

Luminous lugubrious limnologist is spouting facts, findings, figures, fuck up my day now

Medicine, I'm reticent to take one today
Prescribed by hands, those damn deft hands who just know what to say

Oh,
Don’t you understand, am I being clear?
Don’t you understand, am I being clear?
Don’t you understand, am I being clear?
Don’t you know that I can’t repeat repeat repeat myself myself myself myself my
