Side Effects - Tom MacDonald

And we don't want drugs
Why isn't healthcare free?
When our therapists all need therapy
Don't need mental health awareness
Funded by the pharmaceutical terrorists
How can you help us if you can't relate to our feelings that you label symptoms to quantify treatment?
It's hopeless
Your company profile is bogus
You maximize profit by our diagnosis
Doctor's prescribing the pills are awarded a bonus but don't treat the ailments
Financial incentive has changed all our doctors to greedy commission based salesmen
Advertised on every single channel
Commercializing what we cannot handle
Marketing happened, it's targeting people with labels on bottles and logos like cattle uh

Sh_t don't change yeah
I been feeling pain yeah
Doctor sign his name yeah
Pharmacy a game yeah
I'm not living more, I'm dying less
And paying for it with side effects

All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life
All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life yeah

Feeling numb and indifferent
But my therapist listens
He makes notes in his book and I'm sure if I look I'd see names of prescriptions
I just can't escape it, this Ativan, Seroquel, Xanax solution to sicknesses
Corporate agendas have mixed with the wellness of people
Creating a culture of illnesses
All the benefits of modern medicine
And still I feed it down inside my skeleton
I might just let it win if I descend again
And end depression with a rush of adrenaline
I'm feeling electric, pathetic, lethargic
Exhausted and nauseous it's awful
I can't tell the doctor cause I'll leave his office
With bottles of pills that I struggle to swallow

Sh_t don't change yeah
I been feeling pain yeah
Doctor sign his name yeah
Pharmacy a game yeah
I'm not living more, I'm dying less
And paying for it with side effects

All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life
All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life yeah

They don't want me better, they don't want me dead
I got money to blow, there's a price on my head
Take me to the pharmacy
I never get what they promise me
Cause I'm feeling nothing except all these

All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life
All these side effects
From dollar signs on their minds yeah
I'm a mess
And they're just tryna sell me lies
With side effects
Your drugs don't even get me high
I thought dealing was a crime
Y'all just playing with my life yeah
