Doses

They give me pills for the pain, pills to kill the blues
I got pills in a bottle for when there’s nothing else to lose

I got pills for the day, I got pills for the night
But none of these prescriptions seem to take away the fright

I got pills to forget me and pills to blur the view
But none of these doses ever let me forget you

I got the devil on my left with death flanking on my back
And none of these remedies ever give me what I lack
