​Bitter Pill

This song is by Soul Asylum and appears on the album And The Horse They Rode In On (1990).

At the end of the track is a shack
When you die, that's where you go
Down the lines, up from this pit at the end of your rainbow
That's one too many flights of stairs
One more stair and almost there
One more dose close
Keep coming back to haunt you,
Got no place left to go
And they'll strip your car to the bone
We did a scene, checked out a gown
The Justice started laughing
I guess that's what you get for laughing
One last laugh and lived to tell
One more pomp and circumstance
One more fool to follow
Another finger down my throat
It's a bitter pill to swallow
It's moving much too slow
Who it is asleep at the wheel
I don't want to know
Just around the corner there's
Somebody there to take you there
Don't worry child you're sure to be scared
One more drink before I go
One last good luck kiss
One less thing to call my own
That's one more thing I miss
Took the world by storm
Most of 'em either in a dark jail
Or wishing they had never been born
Just around the corner there's
One more pomp and circumstance
One more fool to follow
Another finger down my throat
That's a bitter pill to swallow
