I don't know much but I know this for certain
And that is the sun poking its head round the curtain
Now please can we leave? I'd like to go to bed now
It's not just the sun that is hurting my head now

I'm not trying to say that I'm smelling of roses
But when will we tire of putting shit up our noses?
I don't like staying up, staying up past the sunlight
It's meant to be fun and it just doesn't feel right

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it?
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves antidepressants

But how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them?
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
'Cause from what I can see everyone's at it
Everyone's at it, everyone's at it, everyone's at it

I get involved but I'm not advocating
Got an opinion, yeah, you're well up for slating
See you've got a prescription and that makes it legal
Now I find the excuses overwhelmingly feeble

You go to the doctor, you need pills for sleeping
Well, if you can convince him then I guess that's not cheating
So your daughter's depressed well, get her straight on the Prozac
But little do you know she already takes crack

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it?
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves antidepressants

But how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them?
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
'Cause from what I can see everyone's at it
Everyone's at it, everyone's at it, everyone's at it

Why can't we all, all just be honest
Admit to ourselves that everyone's on it?
From grown politicians to young adolescents
Prescribing themselves antidepressants

But how can we start to tackle the problem
If you don't put your hands up and admit that you're on them?
The kids are in danger, they're all getting habits
'Cause from what I can see everyone's at it
Everyone's at it, everyone's at it, everyone's at it
