WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS
We are your friends said the men in white coats.
We want what's good for you:
Medication that makes you suicidal;
Hallucinogenics to cure your hallucinations
We are your friends said fellow patients
Pulling my hair out, swearing at me,
Giving me a black eye.
We are your friends said my parents
As they 'phoned the asylum'
And dumped me there
We are your friends said the voices
Without whom I am nothing,
Without whom I couldn't get up in the morning,
With me everywhere I go.
