Happy Pills
Candlebox Lyrics


Sometimes you wake to see yourself
Take happier pills to keep you well
And sometimes you talk to hear yourself
Screaming out loud

Never ever heard a word you said
Can't you see yourself?
Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie
But you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Can't you sweep this shit to the side
It's so fucking nice to have you here
To turn our lives from what we fear

But sometimes you're worthless and weak and alone
Will you ever grow?
Here I am I want to help you out
Can't you see yourself?

Can't you understand?
There's more truth in the way that you lie
So you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find

You'll find it's all over and can't you see it's all over
This face that stares back at you
Stares back at you, from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight

I'll be here to watch you shudder
I'll be the one that holds you under
Every time you try to shift it
Every time your stitch is slipping

Slipping through time
There's more truth in the way that you lie
So you take a stab at all that's surrounding your mind
Well you won't believe when this cloud lifts what you might find

Got it all over you now
Got it all over you now
Got it all over this
The face that stares back at you from these happy pills
They won't keep you well tonight

I try to think of this song as therapy. The singer is trying to convince you that happy pills 💊 will make you feel good at one moment but once your feeling up your be feeling down again and the singer is telling him once it wears off then your be feeling down again and depressed because your not facing your fears plus starts getting slowly addicted to the pills.

He’s basically saying let me get you clean I am a friend that is here for you let me help you out. But he won’t listen so he keeps repeating to take the happy bills day after day after day and is taking more then he usually should at this point and now has become an addict for these happy pills keeps the person feeling boosted up.

He feel so happy and so up and don’t worry about problems of anything. Your basically feel like your in heaven until the pills wear off. It’s one thing to take happy pills. But too much of it is a bad sign.

He suppose to follow his prescription but his depression is getting so much worse that he feels taking so much more will make it go away and it will for a period of time until you crash again.

Major Depression is the problem. If the pills that are described to you aren’t working I feel like never take more then you usually should. Find alternatives. I can’t imagine what it must be like for people who are majorly depressed. I feel for them ☹️😥
