about

A salutary tale of how drugs can mess with your head but love can set you free

lyrics

Please don’t make me

Well I was down and busted
In the land of the midnight souls
Seemed like no-one could be trusted
Seemed like I lost my very soul

Then I looked out in the darkness
Stretched out my hands for I could not see
I hoped someone there could see me (could hear me)
And I hoped they’d set me free

I said oh now I’m looking for something
Oh now but I just can’t see
Oh now looking for something to set us free

Don’t make me anymore paranoid than I have become
Don’t you make me anymore paranoid than I have become
Please don’t make me anymore paranoid than I have become

Thought it was done, and dusted
The curtain had been drawn
I closed my eyes and trusted
That the sun would fill the dawn

And I stood there in your doorway
And the scales fell from my eyes
And I saw that road before me
I knew I’d found my prize

I said oh now I’m looking for something
Oh now but I just can’t see
Oh now looking for something to set us free


Don’t make me anymore paranoid than I have become
Don’t you make me anymore paranoid that I have become
Please don’t make me anymore paranoid than I have become

Now I’m standing on the shoreline
Of a dark troubled sea
But I’m anchored in your arms now
And the waves can’t pull me free

The tides can push and pull me
And the sun can hurt my eyes
But the future just can’t fool me
And just like dust I’ll rise
