lyrics

Lyrics:

Oh, the drugs have stopped working
Oh, the darkness is lurking
Oh, and the crystal ball's murky
All my duties I'm shirking

Oh, I can no longer feel them
Oh, I can no longer breathe them
Oh, and the crystal ball's murky
Oh, because the drugs have stopped working

So turn the light on!
So flick your flame on!
Let the incense burn in your eyes
Let life bring you a surprise
Let it be as it is
And let it come as it will

Oh — tolerance and relapse
All disconnects and synapse
Oh — too many taxes and contracts
Don't trust any of those "true facts"

Just turn the light on!
And flick your flame on!
Let the incense burn in your eyes
Let life bring you its surprise
Let it be as it is
And let it come as it will

Because the drugs have stopped working
And the darkness is lurking
And the crystal ball's murky
Because the drugs have stopped working
--
