lyrics

SLOW MEDICINE

She is slow medicine –
A spoonful of sugar won’t make her go down.
An erotic empathogen:
What she withholds is the thing that resounds.

Words are slow medicine,
Distilled into cliché and bland platitudes;
Shake the alembic again –
To see what rises when the dregs are subdued,

It’s not getting, it’s not getting,
It’s not getting any better.

She is slow medicine,
No quick fix, placebo or palliative.
Cautions of toxins –
Always harder to take than to give

Words are slow medicine,
Leisurely working their way through your system;
An active allergen,
Always easier to talk than to listen.

It’s not getting, it’s not getting,
It’s not getting any better.

Neither poppy nor curare,
Ergot or agaric,
Stupefying or visionary,
Hallucinogenic, soporific or ecstatic.

It’s not getting, it’s not getting,
It’s not getting any better.
