I got a lot, you've got a few Just as long as I've got more that you I'd sell my self for anything A couple pills, a diamond ring I ain't all that different than you. You've got to keep up with Jones You've bought a castle not a home You work all day to keep it stocked Door all barred, the windows locked You never get to enjoy what you got. And there's a short list And you are on it. And so's your boyfriend Take it as a certain sign, you're rotting on the vine Watch ourselves slip right through the cracks Don't try to fight it, just relax Don't owe nobody anything, Don't feel no sense of sympathy Just tell yourself you're never going back And take no meaning from all the moanings Its just mechanical Take it as a certain sign you're rotting on the vine And I remember that summer day You looked at me in a certain way And then I...and then you... And then we promised to ourselves that we would Never promise ourselves to anybody again Cut it, print it, that's a wrap we're through I've got a lot of other stuff to do So adios, auf whidersen, I'm out of here, I'm on my way I hardly think about it now, do you? And there's a shortlist And you are on it And so's your sister Take it as a certain sign, you're rotting on the vine Rotting on the vine...that's all...that's all...
Kiss me in the atmosphere on the hill above our town. Where the trees still wave, the kids parade and lovers can look down On shopping malls, concrete walls, the dead and newly born We'll realize we’re no different from those who came before Yeah, it’s too bad about MaryAnn and the boy with astronaut eyes. I thought for sure they’d get along and everything would turn out fine But appetites all-consuming, dead at 17 Solid gold suicide drowned in gasoline You, The Medicine & Me A summer nnight, Cindy loves you, yeah your finally won Older now, but no wiser, I guess I’ll never learn You, The Medicine & Me I'm calling out on a west coast highway through endless acid rain True beauty waits for those who want it more than anything The siren call of better living through better chemistry So many pills, so little time, On the other side we’ll meet You, The Medicine & Me
