  • Maybe we could break your ankle clean and unsuspiciously
    An ER trip, a doctor's slip and you could share your pills with me
    Won't it feel so good though when we're lying
    Side by side can't move and I'm not trying

    Two thousand milligrams each

    A hotel by the pharmacy
    With drinking straws in toothpaste tubes
    Stash them with your toiletries
    And I will share my pills with you

    Little Michael sleeping in the child safety seat
    Lying with the windows rolled up in the August heat

    Three thousand milligrams each
    Four thousand milligrams

    We're driving down the interstate
    You're feeling great, you scratch your wrist
    And we pretend your kids, your husband, all you left does not exist
    And in some motel that night we're lying
    I can barely whisper
    It's like dying

    Baby do you know what I mean
    Well baby, did you hear me?
    Well baby, you fell asleep

    I know I'm weak, I won't deny
    We'll see our trial someday soon
    When I know we're fucked I'll half the pile and share my pills with you

    Cause we've felt fully in our bodies
    And we've felt totally alive
    So we're prepared to float above this dirty bed where we both lie
    Where we lie, lie, lie
    Well we be fine?
    Not this time
