Prozac People
Killing Joke Lyrics


I woke up in the darkness and I tried to see the clock
It was four a.m.
I was curled up like a fetus and my muscles were stretched taut
I couldn't face the burden of another week of worry
I was broken
I took a green and yellow pill.
Washed down with filter coffee

'til it kicked in
Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out

I was isolated by the way I thought and felt
They saw my mood swings
I traveled down the longitude of opposite emotions
I bi-polar
In the north they saw my upside. my excitable and optimistic spirit
In the south they saw my anger and my tears and my despair
They saw my mood swings

Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out
I was one of the prozac people
I was one of the prozac people

Don't monitor this guinea pig for research any more
I will try again
Pharmaceutical conglomerates just count me as a unit
For their product
Identify the enemy. remove the source of fear

Start to change my life
It's a false state of elation
You can join the Prozac nation

If you want to
Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out

I was one of the Prozac people
I was one of the Prozac people
I was one of the Prozac people

I couldn't face the burden of another week of worry

Why this band isn't the biggest in the universe baffles me, but for some elusive, maybe selfish reason I'm glad it is not so

@Damon Schultz they have a decent following
I used to be into them until the 1990s
I was a big fan of Echo/Bunnymen & Big Country as well
I think some bands do get into a situation where they sign to a major to became more famous
Bands like The Chameleons, were always around playing gigs with the attitude of saying no to promoters and having fun
It was much better in the 1980s with more small indie labels to choose, but it was only the band's like New Order who could break into the mainstream because of their established sound
The Cure & U2, also changed their melodies to sound modem pop
I only saw KJ once.👍

I'm glad 😊 they're not big!

Hessy! HESSY

They might well be ! our planet is probably the galactic equivalent of Wednesday night karaoke down the village hall....

I will take a spanner in the works over being center of the universe. I too used to be a sheep among the sheepled masses when young and naive. All changes when you either find your voice, cannabis, or start reading outside approved literature while growth in your learning.

hands down one of the UK's absolute finest bands. when this album came out, countless other British bands were worshipping the Gallagher brothers and trying to emulate their sound. (the mission, and even the pet shop boys to name a few), but this band kept doing what they were great at. and making cryptic music. I very much prefer synthesizers to guitars, but Killing joke are one of the rare exceptions to where when they get heavy, they just rock hard.
