How about getting off of these antibiotics
How about stopping eating when I'm filled up
How about them transparent dangling carrots
How about that ever elusive kudo

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

How about me not blaming you for everything
How about me enjoying the moment for once
How about how good it feels to finally forgive you
How about grieving it all one at a time

Thank you India
Thank you terror
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you frailty
Thank you consequence
Thank you thank you silence

The moment I let go of it was
The moment I got more than I could handle
The moment I jumped off of it was
The moment I touched down

How about no longer being masochistic
How about remembering your divinity
How about unabashedly bawling your eyes out
How about not equating death with stopping

Thank you India
Thank you providence
Thank you disillusionment
Thank you nothingness
Thank you clarity
Thank you thank you silence

Yeah yeah
Ahh ohhh
Ahhh ho oh
Ahhh ho ohhhhhh
Yeaahhhh yeahh

    We are a driven people in the twenty first century and have been since the sixties. All the increases in materialistic gain and
    Our standard of living have come at a heavy, staggering price. So many of us have lost our way socially, culturaly and spiritualy. It is the painful discovery of this that morissette sings about.

    This song speaks to me of finding great humbleness and a sense of spiritual clarity. Suddenly, it's a lightbulb gone on, life is precious but it transcends the boundries of time. It's been a great help to keep my mind focused on the real importance of life. To be spirtually clear and keep my balance... And above all be at peace with myself.

    Thankful for finally being able to truly "see" what life is. To not try to be something we aren't for whatever reason drives us to be that way, but to find inner peace with ourselves and spiritual clarity to become what we are meant to be.

    From being betrayed i learned how precious trust is. Through haveing been a slave i know how wonderful and liberateing freedom is. Though i didn't remember who my true parents were i'm learning who i really am. Through the fog of obsessions {antibiotics} without them i learn the truth. When i let go of the need for the answer i get the answer. When i hear rerun screams of my worthlessnes thank you thank you silence. Thank you alanis for the reminder of lessons learned {and still learning}.

    This song speaks very clearly about forgivness, and how important it is. To forgive is to free yourself from someone, or yourself, and not allow yourself or others to hold you.
