Barenaked Ladies – This Is Where It Ends lyrics

I don't buy everything I read,
I haven't even read everything I've bought.
I don't cry every time I bleed,
My eyes are dry, but they're bloodshot.
I have faith in medication
I believe in the Prozac Nation
You play doctor, but I've lost patience

But this is where it ends
This is where it ends
Call the police and call the press
But please, dear God, don't tell my friends
This is where it ends
This is where it ends

Where's my pride? Where's my self-esteem?
Does it show in the drinks I've bought?
I don't hide every time I'm seen, but I try not to get caught.
Make excuses for behaviour
Can my illness be my saviour?
Hid my heart while you still gave yours


She says she wants to live in a movie
I say I want someone else to stand behind me
And write it all down
'cause I can't be bothered doing it myself.
And I don't want the responsibility of
Proving it's importance.

I have loved and I have waited
Been picked up and been sedated
Mental health is overrated


The love I put away
Like games that children play
The life you choose to break
Like cars dumped in the lake
The laugh lines on your face
The life I won't imbrace
The cold house I won't leave
The guests I won't recieve

I live with it everyday
Even though they moved away
Our yesterdays are on a loop
A marathon of heart breaking moments
