I want an old drug

I found out that a lack of acknowledgement leads to self doubt
I know now that idealism is bound to fade out

You got me again

I have found that human interaction provokes strategic behaviour
I know now that adulthood pretty much equals slave labour

You got me again

I want an old drug

Peace and happiness
There’s no such thing
Recreational
Just give me anything
Peace and happiness
There’s no such thing
Pharmaceutical
Just give me anything

I have found that a million rejections lead to bitterness
I am certain now that it’s gettin’ hard and I could use some pills for this

I want an old drug
