Yelling At The Sun

Medicine

Paul Banks (self-titled)

Pretty dress
Need arch support?
Find what suits you best
See what the others think, and
Does it compliment her chest?

Plane ride and cigarettes
Face that's fat with smiles
TV screen and name-brand jeans, and you
Never saw a reason

So you reach
For the medicine
But you don't
Read the label
And you think
You need a man
But you don't
Need their plans at all

Plane ride and new contacts
Face that's fake with smiles
TV screens and brand new scenes, and you
Never saw a reason

So you reach
For the medicines
But you don't
Read the labels
And you think
That you need a man
But you don't
Need their plans at all

You've just gone away
To the place they've deemed worthy
And you seek your own way
You've gone and written you're own story
Some story
You've got
You've got it, girl
Maybe not
Maybe not

You never saw a reason
