VERSE 1 (E/A SHUFFLE)

So, I went to the doctor

There’s something wrong with me

Hope I find an elixir

To set me free

A         B                      D              E

But he said there was nothing to do

A      B              G    F#

And nothing to see

A       B                   D            E

Gotta learn how to deal with life

A     B  G  F#

And     me

 

CHORUS (DESCENDING)

But I want the anodyne

To make me feel better

So, I don’t have to feel anything anymore

 

VERSE 2 (SHUFFLE)

So, I went to the preacher

A place for me to atone

They said to pray, down on my knees

And I won’t feel so alone

My words echo through the hall

And fall to the floor

I take my pain, my worries, my fear

And head for the door

 

CHORUS (DESCENDING)

Still I want the anodyne

To make me feel better

So, I don’t feel anything anymore

 

BRIDGE (ALT RIFF)

One thing just delays it

Another thing just betrays it

A third thing just frays it

Must I really explain?

I don’t want to keep doing it

But I gotta keep using it

I know you will not approve of it
