Status: Finished  |  Genre: Song Lyrics  |  House: Booksie Classic
Opera Working Title--
"DR41N3D"
About a young girl, Emily Drains, who has a troubled past and is addicted to a painkiller. Set in a typical post-appocalyptic world where the fittest survive and the rest die.
This specific song is about Emily trying to pay her doctor, Richard Visque, for her pricey addiction. Also, first song in the Opera.
Help Wanted-- Dedications to anyone that comes up with good city and painkiller names. I don't want a little glass vial and a gun though. :D
Blessed Be,
Anastasia Rhyne

You say I've got a sickness of the mind
You say it's only a matter of time
You say that I won't last the week
Yet you say that you can save me
So, please, fix me if you can
Please, oh, wise man.

Drain me of this sickness
Take away my pain
Don't stop till I feel again
Drain me of my failure
Drag these tears to hell
Make me feel well
If you can

I say I'm sorry
I say I'll make it right
I say try not to remember
I say give me one more night
So please, I'm the fire you're the fan
Oh please, blind man

Drain me of this sickness
Take away my pain
Don't stop till I feel again
Drain me of my failure
Drag these tears to hell
Make me feel well
If you can

My sickness, does it have a cure?
Oh, doctor, please give me more.
My mind is
Not dulling
The drugs are
Not working
I need more
I need more
I need more
I need more
I want
To sleep
Let me
Fall into dreamland
I wish I
Could creep
To another place
To another place
To another place
Where I could have
Peace
