The effects of psychiatric medicine. This basically stresses that mental illness is nonchalantly dealt with by throwing out pills with toxic side effects that in turn worsen depressive symptoms as opposed to alleviating them.

Pill after pill

I'm swallowing still.

Erasing my mind

still making me ill.

Chemicals surge,

poisoning inside.

My psyche being purged

with nowhere to hide.

Rough tides and stormy seas,

just more pills for me.

The more the moon shines

the harder the shadows burn,

Imprinting my pain upon the earth

on and on and on and on

until it's my turn.

Let me die

Let me die

Let me die

Let me die...
