Waiting for the pills to kick in
I'm rolling around in my skin
I can't sleep
If I could sleep this all would end

Waiting for the pills to kick in
I got a whole mess of new friends
I can count them up
But I can't count on them

If you just look at me
Oh you'd like what you see
And if you're listening
Oh you'd like what I said
But this won’t matter when
The pills are kicking in
And then and then and then and then and then

Waiting for the pills to kick in
I wonder if I'll see her again
She wasn't smart or nice
But she was soft and thin

Waiting for the pills to kick in
You know I got no faith in heaven
I'd be out of here pretty darn quick now
if I did

Somehow life got scored
With screeching horns and diminished chords
If only it was something sweet
A simple melody
