Alanis Morissette – Thank You lyrics

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

    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 refers to me to uttering an unconditioned thankfullness to being alive no matter what happens to you or in the world. We ourselves should do the best we can for ourselves and for the world. What happens in real life the best you can do is to accept and live your life in happiness no matter all the things you and the world encounter.
