​Medication

This song is by Modest Mouse and appears on the compilation album Building Nothing Out of Something (1999).

Original video
This is the part of me that needs medication
This is the part of me that believes in heaven
This is the part of me that thinks outer space is all dead
This is the part of me that wishes it was with it

This is the part of me that's trying to be funny
This is the part of me that loves my parents
This is the part of me that thinks that ants are cavemen
This is the part of me that thinks all humans are ants

This is the part of me that learns from sitcoms
This is the part of me that means nothing

And I don't know
Well, I could go away and you could wish that I had stayed or just stayed gone
And I don't know
And I don't know at all

So, out of the context and into what you meant
And you know your reasons
You don't know who you are, but you know who you wanna be
I don't know

So you go to the library to get yourself a book
And you look and you look
But you didn't find anything to read
And I don't know at all

Left all my kinder parts rusting and peeling
That guy was complaining as he looked at the ceiling
My nose isn't that big, it looks nothing like me
We're all doctors trading sadness for numbness

Grass looks much greener, but it's green-painted cement
The mayor's machines are there cleaning the pavement
You can't make dirt clean so we'll just lemon-scent it
