I'm Going Under (Sedated)

2006

Lyrics

Help me doctor - give me something
I'm going under - I'm going under
It's my baby - since she left me
I'm going under - I'm going under

All the disillusions
All deceptions couldn't break me down (Couldn't break me down)
But now I'm licking windows, pull my hair out
I need something now
Think I gotta be - gotta be - gotta be

Sedated - sedated - sedated - I gotta be...
Sedated - sedated - sedated - sedate me now

Please dear doctor - can you help me
I'm going under - I'm going under
Give me something to forget her
She is my wonder - my holy wonder

All the disappointments
All the drama's couldn't break me down (Couldn't break me down)
But since she's gone away I'm losing faith
I can't breath no more
Think I gotta be - gotta be - gotta be

Sedated - sedated - sedated - I gotta be...
Sedated - sedated - sedated - sedate me now

No matter how I try to fool myself, try to cool myself, I gotta prove myself
Ain't no freakin' medicine screwing up my mind

Sedated - sedated - sedated - don't wanna be...
Sedated - sedated - sedated - don't wanna be...
Sedated (I hate it) - sedated (I hate it) - sedated - don't wanna be
Sedated (I hate it) - sedated (I hate it) - sedated
Sedate me now

I'm going under

Robby talks about I'm Going Under (Sedated)

My anti Anti-Depression medicine song. Beyond a ‘Most Beautiful Pain’ feeling, I couldn’t hardly make it through the day because of heavy depressions. This song is literally.

A constant fight against taking anti–depression medicine. But sometimes it feels like the only way. Got the medicine, but the fear it would numb me and take away the spare moments of creativity fortunately kept me from taking it.
